At Luquillo you are about 1 hour from San Juan, you will be outside the metropolitan area. In Condado you are in a tourist zone of San Juan, near the historic district and Isla Verde

I'm not sure which Condado apartment you are considering but I do know that Playa Azul I is beachfront and has a spectacular view (by the way, I think Tower I has a much better ocean view than Towers II or III). The beach in Playa Azul is excellent and you are next door to the Luquillo public beach which is also excellent. Luquillo's beach tends to be calmer tha Condado's, which is prone to rough surf. The Playa Azul complex has a large swimming pool and basketball and tennis courts. In Luquillo you are very close to the Fajardo bio-bay and the rainforest. You are also very close to the Fajardo ferry service that could take you on a one-day visit to Flamenco Beach in Culebra.

Condado has a much better nightlife than Luquillo and many more restaurant options. And as was written above, you are basically in the city and closer to Old San Juan.

Should you choose to stay in Luquillo, and you have never being to Old San Juan, then I recommend that you plan at least a one-day visit to OSJ and do it on Saturday or Sunday so as to avoid rush hour traffic going into San Juan in the morning and out of San Juan after 4pm.

By the way, my guess is that a true beachfront rental in Condado would be significantly more expensive than a Playa Azul rental.

Enjoy Paradise!
