I booked this hotel based on the reviews but I have to warn everyone...RUN...do not book this hotel. It took my husband and I 1 hour to check - in when we arrived and we had already paid for the room in full! No one seemed to care that we were waiting so long either. As a matter of fact... More

First I should admit that when it comes to beaches a beach is a beach and I'm not easily impressed. So if you are looking for someone to tell you this is the most beautiful beach to see, you won't hear it from me. But what I will tell you is if you are in this area and If you... More

This beach is pretty, but if you are looking for calm water and a place to take a long walk, this is not the beach to visit. It isn't overly large, the sand is a bit soft for walking, and the waves can be very rough. Views are pretty, though.

I jogged this beach a few times barefoot. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the ocean sounds. It is bordered by two rock formations which give it a sense of privacy, even though several hotels are behind the beach.

Condado is the hotel and restaurant strip where the tourists stay and play. If you are not at a resort that offers umbrellas and chairs, you can rent them from independent vendors on the beach generally for $10/day for an umbrella and $5/chair. Folks come buy trying to sell their wares ranging from helado caribe (Caribbean ice cream) to pukka... More

This is the warmest waters I have ever been in, the waves are great for riding in. The beach is very clean and you don't get hassled to buy much from the local vendors.

Such a beautiful beach. We stayed in El Condado after being in Saint Croix the previous four days, and walking onto Condado Beach was such a different feeling. I wanted to stay there forever. Wonderful. Plenty of places to eat around, and the area is lively and nice to walk around in.

endless souvenir shops and restaurants and bars. The place to be, but reminds me of Costa del Sol or Benidorm. where all the tourists stay. Some very comfortable hotels, and beautiful beach.
