All beaches in Puerto Rico are public so the beach is open to everyone. Don't expect an exclusive beach club atmosphere. The Atlantic waters are warm but the undertow makes swimming dangerous. No lifeguards on duty. Keep your children out of the water unless you hold their hands. That's what I wou do, having nearly drowned there. Also, don't walk... More

We visited this beach when staying at a nearby condo. You can rent chairs and umbrellas. The beach vendors are not aggressive and we enjoyed empanadas and massages from them. Current can be a bit strong, but plenty of folks using boogie boards and beach was family friendly.

Condado Beach is a public Beach that was just right outside our hotel. On weekends a local lady will make drinks right in a coconut for you! Very islandy! The beach is protected from the big waves but can still get a little rough. But when it isn't it would be a good place to snorkel. It isn't a large... More

The beach is two blocks from the hotel and very relaxing. Didn't have to fight for a spot on the beach or deal with loud people. Chairs and towels were given. Seaweeds still in the ground and there was a tractor going up and down the strip picking it up. Overall good for what we were looking for. No water... More

This place was located across the street from where we were staying. We went off season, during the week, and thus avoided all the crowds. Beach was relaxing, the water was clear, and warm. There were a lot of cigarette butts everywhere and that was unfortunate because this beach could look so beautiful. That cost it one star. Overall, we... More

Me and my family visited a part of Condado Beach behind La Concha where you can rent two lounge chairs and umbrellas for only $20! The waves were a little rough but made for a lot of fun, its a great beach with Ben & Jerrys just steps away! Also ver convenient if your staying near by on Avenida Ashford.

This is a nice beach which is frequented by tourists and locals. There are guys walking around selling snacks, beer and water. It's cheaper in the supermarkets, but $3 for a beer on the beach is fair enough to me. There are lots of Kitesurfers and a few surfers. I thought it was better than Fajardo beach and it felt... More

I took my husband back to the Marriot stellaris hotel, the service was good check in was easy and the beach is great. The restaurant is a little high priced but no need to eat there there are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance.

Beach was beautiful and... I don't know the right word... "Crisp"? It was a little cloudy our first day, so we couldn't tell how beautiful the beach was, but when it was sunny... Whew! Breathtaking.
