Full disclosure: I’m far from angelic, and not very religious. And, I’ll admit, I often covet material things such as high-thread-count sheets, plush towels, and good wine. So I’d seem like an unlikely candidate to spend time in a convent. And, yet, the thought of staying within quiet, centuries-old walls filled with history and ghosts of the past was something I always wanted to do. Which is how I came to stay at Hotel El Convento in Old San Juan, a 17th century Carmelite monastery. What did I find? Well, nary a cross, but lots of romance and charm, plus 21st-century creature comforts in droves, at the 350 year old property in heart of vibrant old San Juan.
