“Beautiful but generic”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

It is like any ordinary beach. We stayed at a hotel that was 2 minutes away. It was nice to walk out there at night and hear the waves crash. This beach is not a clear as blue type of beach. I recommend going to one of the islands like Vieques or if you want to stay inland, Farjardo beach was beautiful

“Rough currents but good for boogy boarding”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

A few locals were booty boarding, others were just frolicking in the waves. The currents are quite strong here and the waves are big. Nice sandy beach but hardly any shade. Did not dare swim as did not want to risk it, even reception at our hotel advised us not to go in. Water pretty cool too, not the warm temperatures as we would like. Better off swimming further up near the bridge on front of Conrad hotel, this is protected and water is calm.

“Our vacation with a few tips for first time visitors”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Our first visit to San Juan was in March of 2013. We rented a condo on Condado beach which was a wonderful place to stay. The beach is well maintained and beautiful. This location is close to everything you will need, shops, restaurants, bars, etc. If you want to get out and around the island the bus will take you to Old San Juan for $.75. There are also many taxi stands and getting a taxi is never a problem. It is also very walkable. Walking is great. You see so much more, good exercise and free! If you want to arrange tours, go to the Marriot as we did and they can book many tours including El Jungui (which we did). It was a half day trip for about $50.00 per person. The tour guide was excellent and the rain forest is beautiful. Very worth the money. Also, if you take the bus into Old San Juan there is a series of free trolleys to take you all around the area.

“Nice and very enjoyable”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is a wonderful beach and lagoon, well kept and very clean. Nice safe open ocean swimming and in fact while we were there the ironman (woman) competition was taking place right in that area making it even more fun to enjoy.
