San Juan, Puerto Rico
El Convento Hotel in Old San Juan!
You have many options.
I would suggest to check out El Convento. I think it would be perfect. Specially if you want the romance of a 500 years old city as the backdrop of your wedding, Old San Juan. Service is great and the food is spectacular. Try the Guanabana Vinagrette. If you are Catholic you have just across the street the second oldest cathedral in the new world or if you feel more adventurous, you can have the ceremony at one of the majestic fortresses, El Morro (backdrop of the latest Yanni concert) or San Cristobal. This is one of my favorite backdrop for photography. Just speak with either Glorimar or Kamille.
If you are looking for something tropical beach side wedding but want to have the convenience of the San Juan Metro area, check out La Concha Hotel. It is in the Condado area, close to Old San Juan, Shopping center and many hotel for your guests to choose from. The food and service are also great. Speak with Jessica.
Those would be my top to choices and are well within your budget. If you want to check weddings at any of those locations I invite you to visit my website www.davidmedina.com, specially my blog. And if you have any questions or would like to discuss any of those venues in more detail you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In that area you may also want to check The San Juan Hotel and The Ritz Carlton.
I'm having my wedding at Hosteria Del Mar hotel. Very reasonable. you decorate or hire someone to decorate. Less than 5000 for 50 people with dinner and non alcoholic drinks.
You can negotiate your menu at El Convento. I had 102 guests for my wedding there and spent no more than $13 thousand in total.

You will spend what you want two spend. Unless you contact the venues you really like and discuss with them your needs and vision you won't be able to get a real sense of what it will cost you. Don't let fear of cost drive you away from your dream venue. You may be surprise that they are more affordable that you would suspect. If not, then you can cross them out of your list. I am sure you will find one that fits perfectly your vision and needs.
Wish you the best.
