I am 40 and will be bringing my 16 year old with me. I have narrowed it down to Isla Verde beach area. I want the hotel to be right on the beach so we can do late night early morning walks on the beach. I also want to be near cheap chain food type places as my teen is a very picky eater and I don't want him starving on vacation. I looked at Intercontinetal and El San Juan because they are close to Walgreens and strip mall. We don't want a party scene though, nor a dressy atmosphere. We want to just be on the beach, wear shorts and relax. For this I looked on down the beach to the Beach House and Water Club. I don't know about the walkability of this area, how far between things or night walking. We would also like a pool that is open late if possible. This infromation doesn't seem to be on the websites.
Any advice from someone with more knowledge would be helpful. We plan on going to OSJ and doing a rain forest trip. My son would also like to try parasailing or surfing. We would also like to go to Plaza Las America.
