Have a spring fling with Puerto Rico, the “Isle of Enchantment.” What could be more enchanting than an island getaway just a four hour direct flight from JFK? Plan to be whisked away to indulge in a great seasonal deal or a brand new spa – here are some seasonal specials.

The Hilton Ponce Golf & Casino Resort

Spring Escape Packages
From San Juan to Fajardo to Ponce, Hilton Worldwide’s Spring Escape Package includes the fourth night free, adult and children’s breakfast, a casino coupon and 20 percent off spa treatments and is available at the following properties (per night, based on double occupancy and booking prior to April 30 for travel April 12 through June 30):

The Hilton Ponce Golf & Casino Resort in Ponce is located on a secluded stretch of beach along the southern tip of the island. Rates start at $144 and not only can you take advantage of bicycle rentals, mini golf, a meandering pool, the beach and more, but the property also boasts a 27-hole championship golf course.

El Conquistador Resort in The Waldorf Astoria Collection has special rates from $149-$199 and attractions include the Coquà­ Water Park, water sports and beaches on the private Palomino Island, a Golden Door Spa, an Arthur Hills 18-hole golf course and a casino.

The best attribute of the Caribe Hilton in San Juan could be its location – it takes residence on a private peninsula, is just a few minutes from historic Old San Juan and is only 15 minutes from Luis Munoz International Airport (meaning your vacation gets started sooner!). The city’s largest hotel, it features plenty of varied dining options nearby, beachside hammocks and the 12,000-foot Olas Spa. Rates start at $239.

New San Juan Spa
You’ll find a bit of Japanese inspiration in one of the San Juan spa scene’s latest additions – Zen Spa Retreat at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino. Here you’ll find familiar product favorites like Decleor, Eminence and Kiehl’s, as well as an organic line of signature products called Zendera. If you’re a fan of stone massages Zen Spa takes the concept to another level, offering basalt lava Stones, marble stones, jade stones, gem stones and crystal chakra stones to compliment the goals and feel of your treatment. Stay at the hotel and ask for the Rejuvenation Package, which gives $100 spa credit per person during your stay (use code REJUV while booking online).
