We stayed at the Marriott Stellaris and used the beach daily. Each day the waters were very choppy. Few people stayed in the ocean very long after getting wiped out by a wave inevitably. You really have to watch children near these waters. The water would likely be very clear, but the amount of sand and seaweed churned up by... More

We enjoyed the beach everyday from 6/13/2015 through 6/18/2015 . We never had any problem getting a great spot & there is a person as you are entering the beach that you can rent nice comfortable chairs & umbrellas from for $ 5.00 a day . The Marriott hotel is right next door with great restaurants if you feel like... More

Condado beach is one of the most popular beaches in San Juan, but we found our own little piece of heaven on the beach. The water is absolutely beautiful and the heavy breezes helps you stay cool. The waves are larger than other areas, so you do have to be careful while in the water. The vendors who walk the... More

Breath taking view of crystal clear azure waters. Charming and inviting with a tropical magnetism beyond description. Breezes blow and lull you to rest and repose.

Best beach in San Juan . Miles of sand. You'll see dogs having fun.Young people playing volley. Lots of activities there. No shade really. Bring your own beach chair. The further east the best it gets. Beach gets better in summer.

Condado has many options for beaches. If you want a calm beach, go to the waveless area next to Condado Plaza. There you can rent chairs and umbrellas as well as order drinks from the beach. If you walk further up, you have the beach next to La Concha Hotel which has waves, and you can also rent chairs and... More

We stayed one block off the beach in this area and really LOVED our Best Western lodging. The locals and the establishments along the way were another matter. We are White, from the States, English speaking only. Many of the restaurants and locals in businesses either speak no English or very little English (really, go figure) so that ordering food...

The Condado strip of hotels has from affordable to high end and the beaches right in the back yard. Shops, restaurants, and casinos all in the area and if you look closely you may even sea manatees and sting rays...
