I really like this beach: it's centrally located and there's easy access to it for both the public and for hotel guests. It does get really crowded, though, so if you don't like crowded beaches, I'd recommend going to Ocean Park or Isla Verde.

The beach is average. There is some seaweed in the water rocky in some places. It's ok, not too bad. There are much better beaches on this island. If you're going for the beach alone try another part of the island.

I stayed at the Stella Maris condo. The beach was literally 2 mins away. Nice, relaxing beach. Since we were at the condo, we bought all of our stuff to the beach- chairs, umbrellas so we didn't need to rent any. Water was just right. Not too rough.

It is a family fun beach. Although it's the ocean side of the island, the water seemed clearer than back home (think Outer Banks.) Part of the beach is on the Marriott property, which is where we stayed. However, you can also access the public part of the beach. Downside, the Marriott portion of the beach pretty much shuts down... More

Nice beach. Lots of rocks in some areas. Bring your own beach chair - heavily managed by resorts making it hard to sit in chair that does not belong to them. Luckily I was staying at the Vanderbilt and was attended to nicely here! Drinks, towels brought to you. So that was nice. Not the best beach - but not... More

First of all, this is not A Caribbean Beach, it is on the Atlantic Ocean if you look at a map. That said, the waves are going to be rougher than they are in the Caribbean, especially near a storm or during a full (or nearly full moon). They do maintain the beach and it has an outdoor shower to... More

I didn't go to the large beach. I don't think I've ever seen the larger Condado beach with rough waves as I see on some of these reviews. The beach you HAVE to go to is on the other end of the bridge, it's right on Avenida Ashford, right next to El Condado Plaza. Or you can look for the... More
