Beach was beautiful and... I don't know the right word... "Crisp"? It was a little cloudy our first day, so we couldn't tell how beautiful the beach was, but when it was sunny... Whew! Breathtaking.

I loved this beach! The sand was really soft and the expanse of beach was really wide. The water was amazingly blue and really warm (even at around noon). In the area we were in the waves were the perfect size to play in, and the water had a pretty steady descent, not a drop-off. Wish I could give a... More

Spent so much time here and it never changes its beauty. Going here to me is like taking a stroll at the ends of the Earth. I always feel like it's just me and the Ocean--we are ONE! Sit up on the rocks and see for yourself. It's closest thing to being a Mermaid!

What you would expect of a touristy beach. Was here recently and stayed to watch the sun set. Many places nearby to get food or a drink but steer clear of Latin Star, worst restaurant I've ever eaten at.

Condado beach is a large sandy beach with plenty of room between the hotels and the ocean to enjoy. The beach itself seems to go on for miles and is lined with resorts and condos and is also adjacent to a beautiful park. The ocean temperature was very warm and there were plenty of waves to make swimming fun. Lounge... More

Very beautiful from the hotels. Rocky in areas but great scenery. There were plenty of people who would swim across the entire bay there from one end to another. Looked fun.

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.
