Restored Spanish villa near Condado Beach with on-site restaurant

The Acacia Seaside Inn's dramatic wooden door opens to a long granite hallway lined with chic leather chairs, exotic flowers and paintings of tropical scenery. This restored Spanish villa is tucked away on a residential street with beautiful Condado Beach at the end of the block. Al fresco corridors that pass through a lush garden connect the hotel with the popular on-site restaurant, Niché. The rolling waves of Condado Beach are visible from the hot tub, rooftop terrace and some rooms. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in common areas.

Highlights
  • The golden sands of Condado Beach just footsteps away from the Acacia Seaside Inn
  • Popular Niché Restaurant is on site
  • Rooftop sundeck and whirlpool
  • Access to neighboring hotel's pool
Rooms

Sunny floral bedspreads, thick white plantation shutters and beach scene paintings greet guests in the 15 rooms at the Acacia Seaside Inn. Wicker and wrought iron headboards and furniture embellish these bright rooms. Rooms with balconies overlooking the ocean are available upon request. Washrooms are shower-only with unique tile work in earthy tones and pedestal sinks with the basins in the shape of a shell.

The on-site restaurant Niché is big on ambiance and flavor. Granite walls, warm lighting and custom woodwork complements the international cuisine including dishes such as parmesan-crusted halibut and the Taste of the Island, which includes tuna tartar, mahi mahi ceviche and lobster salad.

Great location close, but slightly away, from the crowds

A cute Spanish style design, small hotel. Half a block to the Ovean Park Beach popular with locals. In residential area but less than minute walk to the tourist area Condado. We found the staff friendly and helpful.

not bad for the price

Great food at restaurant. Access to the beach. Great hang out spot 3 blocks down (Mango's). Main street a walk away. No parking available at the time of my stay. Cleanness needs a little more attention on floors. It felt sandy.

Great Vacation!

The room was clean and comfortable and the concierge was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a perfect spot for a getaway for 2. The view was beautiful and the giant hot tub just off the balcony was the cherry on top of a fantastic stay!

Veterans Day Getaway

Stayed at the Acacia Friday through Monday. A small, quiet hotel on a quiet side street just one (tall) building from the beach. And a lovely beach it is, too--wide, with soft sand, and gentle surf when we were there, although that's in comparison to our lifelong summer visits to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Just east of the Acacia, the seaside blocks become more residential, less tall. Just to the west, though, the tall, bustling Condado district begins--lots of restaurants, bars and shops. A very easy walk for us, either up the beach or on the main road, Ashford. The Acacia doesn't offer room service, which caused us to get up-and-at-'em on a hunt for coffee each morning--we liked that, because it got us out the door, which is where you want to be. Air-conditioning in the room (Rm 201) worked well and was needed even in November. No elevator, but only four floors--nice sundeck and little bath/shower up on the 4th floor. Lovely, helpful staff--everyone spoke very sharp English--indeed, everyone we met in Puerto Rico did. Made things so easy, perhaps too easy, if you want to be forced into practicing your Spanish. Would go again, definitely. Marked down a bit for Amenities, because, really, there just aren't very many--it's a small, small place.

Walk east (to the right) up the beach, perhaps 400-500 yards, and you'll come to Pamela's restaurant, with some tables right there on the sand, under the palms. If you spend $20 on any given day--easy to do with the delicious food and lovely drinks--you can sit all day in a nice chaise longue, and the friendly, attentive staff will bring you towels, plant an umbrella to shade you, and whisk drinks to your waiting hands before you realize you've downed the last one. Fantastic amenity.

Comforting relief

I wasn't sure what to expect since my last stay in PR was horrible. Fortunately, on this trip the stay was wonderful! I could smell the detergent off the bed sheets. The bathroom was super clean. The AC worked perfectly well. The view to the ocean put a smile on my face every morning (even if it was raining). The staff is cordial, respectful, and pleasant. I was able to relax. Since it doesn't offer continental breakfast, I had the opportunity to enjoy morning walks to Starbucks and greet pedestrians and/or joggers on the way.

Nice Room with ocean view

After exploring on the internet, I finally decided on the Acacia Hotel after reading many reviews, mostly on the positive side for this small hotel. I could easily have stayed closer to old town San Juan, and a more upscale hotel (casino, beach, bars ) but I wanted to experience the beach scene as well as the local life. The small room consisted of a small queen bed, a flat screen tv (slightly larger than my laptop) shower, sink ,toilet all with good pressure. There was a nice walk out patio-balcony which was definitely a bonus. The view looked out to a small lap pool (hot tub). The problem with the lap pool was there was a fair amount of partying in the early hours of the morning. There was also a partial view of the beach even although a condo building obstructed part of the view. There was no refrigerator in the room, so I purchased a ice chest for $6 which kept my beer/oj cold for up to six hours. The loud drone of the dated air conditioner could be a negative factor, but after awhile I hardly noticed the sound. The staff were very friendly and helpful in regards to directions and points of interests, especially Fernando. There was a small expensive restaurant in the hotel called "Niche". Prices start for "pork chops" $42; lobster $48, steak $44, fish $40, salad $24, fries $14. Hey , they did have a "door man". for the restaurant. I relied on the local bus which was $.75cents (exact change) each way to old town, which was about a twenty minute ride. I did arrange a tour of "old town" plus a tour of the Bicardi Rum factory (which in my opinion was a waste of time). The cost for this tour was $55. The beach was very similar to most beaches in Florida. There was a high surf, so I wouldn't recommend it to young kids. Since I was down on business for two weeks, I asked the local policed beach patrol about any problems with "sharks" and they said no, although they did say watch the "undertow". On the Discovery channel it was "shark week", so I did hesitate at first before swimming. After the third day, I had severe leg cramp which I ended up visiting the local hospital. They wanted $500 up front to see a doctor plus a six hour wait. I declined and lived with the pain until I got home. I realize I could claim a portion of this on my private medical plan, but it never is the total amount. Many of the nurses didn't know the word "emergency". What is emergency in Spanish? (emergencia)I hate it when nurses say "no comprehender". There were a few local bars and restaurants near by the hotel. Most of the local restaurants (MCDonald's,Wendy's, Burger King, Church chicken, all within a twenty minute walk. There were a few air conditioned bars where most served beer from $1.00 to $3.My favourite restaurants were Roberts (beside Tatoo place, Uno's, and Blonda Condado and Komali on Taft street where most of the food is "organic"at this place.. I never found the locals that friendly towards tourists, especially when you compare them to Cubans or other islanders. Generally I'm glad i visited this island, but it will be a long time before I return.
