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.

Features

Self parking is available for a fee at Acacia Seaside Inn.

Dining

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. Finish up with the mango cheesecake, or a pick from the extensive cava and rum menu.

A tasteful boutique experience

We spent 4 nights here and overall had a lovely time. The standard rooms are small but clean and don't have a view. The hotel has a interesting quaint design with modern touches. the location was perfect, we were only a 15 mins drive away from old san Juan, and 5 mins from restaurants and cafes in condado. also loved having the beach so close by. all the hotel staff are friendly and helpful with planning activities. if you want a reasonable, tasteful place that's well located, acacia is a great option.

Wonderful Acacia Seaside Inn

I had dinner with my husband twice at this hotel and we had breakfast. All food was great, but portion of food is quite small. The hotel was much better than pictures on website! The hotel was clean and cozy. Condado beach was so beautiful in the morning because there are lots of people in the afternoon. It's 10 mins away from the San Juan air port by taxi.

Friendly people, beautiful location.

I loved the inn. The hot tub was absolutely wonderful, and the beach was just a few steps away. We spent some time at the sister hotel, the Wind Chimes, which was less than a block away. We talked with Genie at the Wind Chimes who was so helpful in finding good places to eat. The bar at the Boat Bar had the BEST salmon quesadillas I've EVER had. Complaints? Nope. Every day, we went straight from the beach to the hot tub. Then we walked a couple of blocks to find a place to eat. Everything was within walking distance.

Old San Juan is absolutely charming. You can walk a few blocks to the bus stop. 15 minutes and $.75 later, you get to a beautiful square with some great souvenier shops and a good restaurant on each corner. We went to the Parrot Club. It was trendy with amazingly wonderful food.
