We stayed at La Concha for four nights in Aug. 2012 and, for us, it was a perfect vacation, wonderful hotel. We had an ocean view and the view was stunning; the room itself was spacious and well-appointed with a refrigerator and plenty of room for the four of us. Service throughout the hotel was very good (front desk very helpful). The beach, which some of the reviews complained about, was very nice (we also visited Isla Verde and preferred Condado), with lounge chairs and umbrellas provided to guests. The only negative was the surf this time of year was quite gentle so we ended up spending more time in the pools, which were terrific and open all night. There are a number of restaurants nearby (the Waikiki was very good and had a great deck overlooking the ocean) and we ate at the Italian restaurant one night and thought it was quite good. Prices were comparable to those outside the restaurant (food in this area is not cheap though there is a Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts easy walking distance). The lobby was very pleasant with breakfast in the morning (included in our rate and well worth it) and one evening a very good band, always lively. To give you an example of the hotel, one morning I met the General Manager and we chatted about the property, and I complimented him on it. The next day he sent up a nice basket of fruit, which conveyed the warmth and graciousness of this property. All four of us (two kids) loved it and hated to leave. One of my favortie hotel stays ever, can't see how you can go wrong here.
