La Concha is a great hotel-- especially their friendly staff. Felix, who works in the transportation area, always greated us with an enthusiastic hello and made sure we found great restaurants and bars. Since we were on vacation, it was nice to stay in a hotel where the staff is genuinely interested in making sure our stay was relaxing and fun. Thanks Felix!

I'm normally not a stay-by-the-pool-and-order-drinks kind of traveler, but on this visit to San Juan, that's exactly what I did for four days. And it was wonderful, because this hotel is SO cool.

The design of this hotel is like a museum exhibit. Gorgeous, modern, open, clean, with excellent music playing in the background and fantastic lighting....I dare you not to get a bit snobby when you stay here.There are several infinity-edge pools with ample chairs, and the beachfront, although cursed with a strong breaking surf, has a nice bar and bed-like chairs on terraces for lounging. The central bar in the lobby is expensive, but the vibe is great at all hours, especially after midnight on a weekend night when the DJ kicks his set up a notch. Stores along Condado Ave. offer high and low-end clothes and food, with lots of local flavor and style. Old San Juan is a 5-minute drive. And the Perla restaurant is a Mad-Men-ish retro-cool, delicious gourmet experience. Our tower room had floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean, a rainshower, white leather couches and frosted-glass wall-unit closet units. Staff upgraded us upon check-in, too. Fab.

Cons: rough surf at the beach. Food and drinks are pricey. Even though we saw kids there, there aren't a whole lot of things for them to do unless they're at the pool. There is a no-swimsuit dress code in the lobby (I appreciated this, frankly). And there is a somewhat halfhearted casino room (which seems to be largely ignored by guests here). But, if you want to take advantage of Puerto Rico's uniquely hip Caribbean vibe, this place is a great choice. I'd definitely go again....soon, I hope.

Room Tip: Request a high floor.

We really enjoyed staying at the La Concha. All of the staff were very helpful, from the front desk, to the waitstaff, to the beach guys. The rooms were clean, and we were given extra towels or shampoos very quickly when we needed it. We had an issue with our tv when we first arrived, but they fixed it very quickly!

The hotel decor overall is also lovely. The only complaint we had about the hotel was that the lobby air conditioning was blasting. With the bar in the lobby, it made grabbing a drink at night a bit frustrating.

The location was also great. Easy cab ride to/from the airport as well as to Old San Juan. There are also good restaurants within walking distance to the hotel, so we had good choices for going out for dinner if we didn't want to go into Old San Juan.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!

Nicely designed hotel with all the amenities, and a fun bar scene in the lobby. The hotel has several pools (some of which have views of the beach), including a beautiful infinity pool on the beach itself. The hotel is right on a very nice (though windy while we were there) beach. Great drinks and all kinds of food at all hours of day and night. The hotel is also happy to arrange tours to the bio bay and other places for you. A bit expensive, but worth it - arguably one of the nicest hotels in Puerto Rico.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the ocean, which was beautiful to wake up to.

I stayed at this hotel 4 nights last week with my daughter. It was beautiful - impeccably clean and well-kept, excellent service, and generally a wonderful experience. We especially liked the adult pool area where we didn't have to deal with children. However, I would suggest there be more of the couch-like seating in that area so that more people could nap. The sun chairs are not so good for that. It would also be nice if there were some bar service in that area for at least part of the day.
All in all, a great experience - we would go back and recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: We really enjoy having a balcony, so the suite tower with a city view balcony was perfect for us.

This was the destination for a girls weekend trip and I would classify this hotel as average. The TV did not work, and management did not even seem in any way shape or form remorseful - we asked for some form of compensation, and they said the manager would call us back, but never did. The other room that the other half of our group was staying in smelled moldy - they forced maintenance to replace the filter for the AC, but it didn't help. Bathrooms were nice - the "queen" beds were more "full size". The beach was small, but nice. Service on the beach was SLOW however. The pool/patio area was very nice, and service there was excellent. Breakfast was average - $25 for a buffet. Manuel at breakfast was so helpful and nice, and so were the bellboys who got us cabs. The lobby was lively, but DJ was horrible, unfortunately. Location is great - only 10mins to old San Juan. Overall, I'd say this was a decent place to stay, but I wouldn't feel the need to come back, unless there was a phenomenal rate. The staff was very nice and accommodating, but I got the opposite feeling from management!
