I assumed it was just good photos because I’ve never been to a two star hotel that looks this good (and it’s so well located). But it’s true. Cool room. Great staff. Superb location. Yes, for 10 seconds you might feel like it’s in a rough area of town... but if you walk 2 minutes (literally 2 minutes) a great road with great restaurants and the ocean right in front. Enjoy this economical gem.

The Wave Hotel provides a roof view of the Condado area and a morning continental breakfast. The rooms are similar in design with ample natural light. Top 7th floor has poor internet, but the hotel staff were helpful and agreed to change me to a lower room. Hotel staff responded promptly to my requests (or suggestion) and I must say that I have no complaints. Outside viccinity has its share of homeless, but that is a local social problem in el Condado.

I can stay pretty much anywhere for one night but found The Wave super challenging to stomach. Very lipstick on a pig though in walking distance of a very beautiful beach. Broken elevator and a visible slime in drinking water and ice. Staff was super pleasant

This was my first option always. I never plan my vacation ahead of time because I’m local, I live 30 minutes away from the Condado area. But when I want to stay at the condado area I’ll always look first for availability at this hotel, until now. I’m very disappointed. Starting with the room. I was in shock. Both twins (tiny) beds where dirty. The sheets are clearly old with stains on it. Thank God I’ll always pack a set of sheets just in case. The floor was cover with women hair and beach sand. Even the shower had sand. The toilet was dirty as well and broken at the seat. The best part of this hotel is the view from the rooftop where there is 2 whirlpool tub that in the past where a delight to use. That was no the case anymore. Only 1 run was working properly and the only one was dirty as a public pool. Gross is a fine word to describe it. I can blame the personnel because they are always kind. I just wonder if there’s a manager around because this thing are easy to fix but they need to step to the task. As a Disney cast member I know what to expect from a hotel more at this price range. Disney has value hotel at this price rate and the quality can be compared. The Wave used to be good, now I have to say that’s better put money elsewhere. Sadly!

We arrived to the hotel and everything was fine until we got into the room and found out it was already occupied. We returned the keys expecting to be changed but found out that the hotel was overbooked. Then while we were waiting to be relocated new guests arrived and could check in and get their rooms but for some reason they didn't explained why we didn't had a room. They sent us to another hotel where the parking was not free and out of condado where we wanted to stay. After complaining at the second check in in the other hotel, they gave us a room and a free parking pass. The people at the front desk of the wave were not empathetic to us they just wanted us to go to the other hotel so the problem was managed by other people and not them . I'm very dissatisfied and disappointed. I would never ever recommend The Wave to anyone nor would stay there like ever. I asked for a discount for all the inconvenience and they just didn't do anything. So if you want to be sure and don't want to go to a hotel after an 8h flight to be sorprised discovering you don't have the room you paid in advance then DO NOT GO TO THE WAVE.
