I stayed at La Concha in the Suite Tower for 4 days to celebrate a friend's birthday. I chose the 1 bedroom suite with a partial ocean view. The room was very nice (564), but the partial ocean view also left me with a partial city view of a dilapidated building! I just ignored that view and concentrated on the ocean view ;-). The maids did a great job of cleaning it every day. I have stayed at La Concha before in the other tower with a full ocean view (no balcony) and it's amazing! The other tower can be a bit noisy from the bar area and pool, so if that's a problem for you then the Suite Tower may be the way to go.
One of the best things about my stay at La Concha was the level of service we received from Hector Torres around the pool and at the restaurant around the pool. There have been other reviews that have mentioned Hector and they are spot on about his friendliness, professionalism, and willingness to serve no matter how high maintenance and/or tipsy we got :D.
I also want to mention that there were a number of other employees there who were friendly and willing to serve. Sometimes the service is slow but really you're on vacation and the key is to relax. Sometimes other staff members did not get something right, but they were always ready to fix the problem to your satisfaction when you brought it to their attention.
We had dinner at La Perla and the food and service was excellent. The restaurant next to the pool area also serves good lunch and snack food. We had the breakfast buffet which was also good.
I have stayed at a number of different hotels in the San Juan area (St Regis Bahia, Hilton Caribe, Marriott down the street from La Concha) and I have to say this is fast becoming my favorite hotel. The hotel is well kept. The service is friendly. The other travelers are a good mixture of young and middle age without being too immature or snobby. The location is fantastic (close enough to the airport, Old San Juan, good restaurants in Condado, etc). I'll be back!
