What a beautiful area. There are some beautiful homes but there are also some run down empty eyesores. But when you get the story behind them then you understand. Most of the empty ones are either tied up in a divorce settlement or children fighting for the property of their late parents. A lot of history in San Juan.

I wrote a review primarily about Playa Ocean Park, but I realize, since Ocean Park is a section of San Juan it might be helpful to know more about the general area: First, Ocean Park is just down the shore from El Condado - the famous section of San Juan known for its big hotels and casinos. In contrast, Ocean Park is a more residential area, but still upscale with lots of high-rise apartments and condos. It's well-kept, clean and the police maintain a visible presence to discourage crime. There are a few smaller hotels, two sister boutique hotels like Wind Chimes, where I stayed and which I reviewed and Acacia, also small but charming and well located. There small shops along Avenida McCleary, the main drag, which sell food, frozen yogurt, etc. and a corner gas station that has an outdoor display of various wines and spirits for purchase. One "happy place" is Mango's (also reviewed separately), which attracts a young professional crowd and serves good food as well as good libations. In general, this was the vibe I got from the entire area, including the beach-goers. Unless you're really into the casinos, I'd tell you to check it out as an alternative to El Condado with the same easy 75 cent bus service to Viejo San Juan.

Ocean Park is a clean beach area that is easily accessible from the Condado area. It has parking available, and the location is generally quite safe during the day. Highly recommended.
