Staying at the surprisingly good Hotel Miramar at 606 Juan Ponce de Leon Avenue in Condado, at the eastern edge of Old San Juan, I was able to walk to Condado Beach, restaurants and casinos, without paying the exorbitant cost of hotels with the same or slightly higher rating. As seen from Hotel Miramar's rooftop terrace, Condado Beach seemed far... More

We were disappointed in Condado, based on our expectations--we had read it was the Miami Beach and Rodeo Drive of San Juan, so we expected a nice beach with a collection of fun shops and restaurants. The beach is fine, though not great--the water was pretty rough when we were there, which can be common for north-facing beaches. The restaurants... More

Right in the heart of all activities and away from the traffic. Have loungers and umbrellas for rent, waiters around to provide drinks, great place to just relax.

I liked that this beach was very accessible by Condado Ave. There were times it was too crowded and the merchants were kind of annoying.

My hotel (Ciqala Suites) has a section to use on this beach. While it is not as one of the other islands (Icacos or Culebra), it is very nice. It is clean sand. The water is not clear as the other outer islands because the surf is stronger. If you like riding the waves and just have a fun beach... More

I love Condado Beach. The beach itself might not be the best in the world, but the area is awesome! It reminds me of Miami. Vibrant, lots of excellent restaurants. Fun hotels! Love everything about this place and when in San Juan, would highly recommend to staying. Its only about 15 min from Old San Juan as well.
