I'm from Texas and our beaches are very different. My son is 7 and he loved it! He was in the water a good 2-3 hours. The waves come up pretty far so he was entertained the whole time. Very nice beach and not far from our hotel.

Sand in the Caribbean is always so nice compared to other parts of the world. This beach doesn't disappoint on that count. All of the 4 and 5 star hotels in Condado have their little piece of the beach depending on which part you go to. You can however tent a chair for as little as $5 for as long... More

Any water in the Caribbean is going to be absolutely stunning, and that was the case for Condado Beach. The sand feels nice and soft as well. However, it is crowded and is around a lot of hotels. It's not the calming isolated beach feeling that I personal go for. It is easy to get to and has plenty of... More

Very close to restaurants, chairs for rent if you aren't staying at one of the five surrounding hotels. Walking distance to a great lunch or snack at Ben & Jerrys. Taxi stands all around. Short drive from old San Juan.

If you just want to hang out in the beach without leaving San Juan, Playa Condado can be a good option. We rented an umbrella and 2 chairs for 15 dollars...we parked in the Marriott for 2 hours or do and we payed 15 dollars. The beach is ok but if course it doesn't compare to beaches like the ones...

This is a nice beach, which was very close to my hotel. There is lots of sand and on the days that I was there the beach did not have very many people on it. The water was nice and warm, but I do caution that there is an under tow, so do not go out more than about 50... More

My family lives in the Caribbean so I'm used to really great beaches. I thought this beach would be along the same lines so I was really looking forward to it. When I saw it.. Ehh..more to be desired. Very choppy water and LOTS LOTS LOTS of ugly seaweed! I HATE seaweed because I feel like something is crawling on... More
