  • Is there beach access for El Convento guests?

    The Convento Beach Club is the name of the program that we have with our sister property The Courtyard by Marriott located in Isla Verde approximately 15 minutes away from El Convento. After presenting the beach pass at front desk you will be able to use all the services that The Courtyard has to offer (swimming pool, beach, towels, beach chairs). The hotel does not provide transport service between both properties, the best way to arrive is a taxi, and the tariff is $20.00 based on 2 people.

  • Hola buen día, Estoy viajando con un grupo de 12 personas, por lo que buscaríamos rentar 3 cuartos con camas dobles. Mi duda es si estos tres cuartos pueden estar uno a lado del otro y si el pago se pudiese realizar con tres tarjetas de credito distintas. Gracias!

    Buen dia, Si el huesped tiene la solicitud de tener los cuarto cerca, hacemos el esfuerzo para lograrlo pero no es algo que podemos garantizar. Si pueden realizar sus pagos dividos de tener esta necesidad.
