The beach is beautiful, and the views are incredible. Watching the sun in the morning is really spectacular. However, we really felt that this general area was filled with Spring Break and Bachelor Party type guests. Lots of bars, lots of younger people. Just not our style.

We stayed in a beachfront condo. The view from the condo was excellent! One thing that concerned me a tiny bit was that there were dogs freely roaming & many mosquitos at sunset. The beach isn't a amazing as beaches ice been to in Mexico but the view is nice. The most amazing thing to me was seeing dust clouds... More

The scenery is beautiful, but the waves crashing in did not make for a good place to swim. Also very strong rip tides so I was afraid to venture out very far into the water. Beautiful place to enjoy the sunrise though.

Sandy, wavy, not too crowded- we went there almost every day since it was only a block from our hotel (Comfort Inn). A couple nice little cafes right at the edge of the beach too.

We stayed on Condado Beach for a week in Decemer of 2014. Not exactly the prettiest beach Ive been to but its clean, safe, and just steps away from great dining, clubs, and shopping. There is a hotel in everybodys price range along Condado, which makes traveling with a large group of friends much easier to accomodate everybodys budget.

I would have to say staying in the Condado Beach area give you a little bit of everything right at your fingertips. You can walk to local eateries and small quaint places to shop. The beach is close by. The water is very harsh and choppy and not for the faint at heart but if you can swim you will... More

I arrived Monday, oohing & ahhing over the amazing view from my balcony. Tuesday, we played in the waves & on the beach while enjoying coconut ice cream and fresh coconut water. Wednesday, we spent on Culebra (gorgeous!). Thursday, we were awakened by a horrible screeching sound...it turned out to be a backhoe. On the beach. Digging a trench. Once... More

We were in PR in January and stayed at the Vanderbilt hotel...can't top that. However...LaConcha...at a different price point does a great job! We were in a corner suite in the new tower. Rooms were clean and large. Loved the mini kitchen. I would call it very IKEA like. The pool areas were great...easy wifi access everywhere. Easy to find... More

We were shuttled here from Ciqala Suites and entered the beach next to a lovely abandoned building! The sand was soft. There were no shells, which seemed strange. The waves were high and rough, the red flag was out. People got in, but didn't go out far. It was disappointing to not be able to really enjoy the water. There... More
