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

Condado Beach is a typical urban beach with a mix of everything. When we visited, the waves and wind were very strong, a bit too challenging to get in the water. If you can manage to get parking, there is plenty to enjoy e.g. sit and relax, take a stroll, people watching, several restaurants and eateries. The urban Market (Mercado... More

This is a great beach just north of Ashford Avenue. It is sandy and the Atlantic surf is a lot of fun. However, it isn't a very good beach if you have small children (under the age of 8, you should probably go to the small protected beach just up the road at the east end of bridge across the... More

Good clean beach with lots of places to sit. There were extra chairs too. They came around to get your drink order, but was very slow. The waves were pretty big there also. Walking distance to Ben and Jerrys.

Very nice beach. Wide strip of sand, not too busy, and warm water. It was a bit windy, and the water was rough, but I'm not sure if this normal.

I liked this beach it is little bit windy but you don't notice it to much since it cools you off. Area close to hotels is bit more crowded then if you walk more east, however here you can rent chairs and umbrellas. The crowd is a nice mix of tourist and locals. if you walk more east you get...
