Just returned from Puerto Rico

+Stayed at the Marriott on Ashford Ave. Nice Hotel for being over 40 years old, and used to be a Sheraton. Only decent food at the hotel was the italian restaurant. Ate at The Palm and got a BIG disappointment. Steaks ordered medium came rare, ordered Salmon and got shrimp. They immediately took it back and 7 minutes later returned with the Salmon but was inedible--all raw. They did not charge for the salmon, but we complained to the host, and his remark was "well you got it free"....That was really not called for or appropriate. Has to ask for the water glasses to be filled twice....
Our waiter was serving since the place opened 10 years ago, and his white jacket said
"Certified Trainer".... Very nice advertising for Puerto Rico. It was a terrible experience at The Palm.
Tried to make a reservation at METROPOL, highly recommended, but they do not take reservations. Its across the street from the Ritz.
Went to Ajill Mujili (spanish food and atmosphere) in Condado area. Nice atmosphere, but slow service because lack of waiters, and food was just OK....I guess we would of been better off at Tony Roma's or Chili's........
Lots of traffic, dirty streets, very bad drivers, terrible highway signs, and very rude drivers make it a island that we do not need to go to....................
Gambling was great.
