When you're in the mood for water, whales, and shimmering weather in coastal San Juan, the Atlantic Beach Hotel San Juan delivers on all fronts. More intimate than most accommodations in the area, it breaks the traditional San Juan's resort mold, with trendy touches like quiet beachside patios that take you directly onto Condado Beach. Natural colors, plants and wood strike an earthy tone in the communal areas, while rooms are lined with graded granite, and stylized windows seem to bring the ocean right into your suite. Enjoy a morning coffee at the terrace bar with a free newspaper, and sit beneath the swaying shade of local palms before diving into the Atlantic.

Neighborhood
Found among the white sand and crested seas of the Condado district, some two miles from the historic sites of Old San Juan, the Atlantic Beach Hotel is within reach of the souvenirs and boutiques of stylish Ashford Avenue, and the beachfront escapades and volleyball matches at Balneario (public) Beach. For guests who prefer watersports with more of a rough-and-tumble feel, kayaking in nearby Condado lagoon provides protected waters away from the often choppy tide.
Hints and tips
The oceanfront Queen suite is highly sought-after by couples, so book it early if you have a romantic escape in mind. When it comes to dining, Oceano restaurant is just next door for some classic San Juan seafood. Or guests can venture further along Ashford to Ummo Argentinean Grill, for some meaty chorizo, blood sausage dishes, and plenty of Latino-inspired dishes.

Vacation

The rooms & beds are very tiny and there is no door knob on the bathroom (it's not a sliding door). The air is kept at one temperature for the entire hotel/motel. If you have a 3 person come up to your room, they will charge a $27 nightly fee for them, yes even to visit you. You get what you pay for.

MY FIRST TIME IN PR

THE ROOM WAS DISGUSTINGLY SMALL, MOLD WAS EVERYWHERE, TV DID NOT WORK, BED EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE, STAFF WAS OK, BUT WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN! IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE TO SLEEP IN THAT ROOM THAT FELT LIKE A BOX.

Not What We Were Expecting

We were excited to check into to this hotel upon arrival because of the chic look online and awesome location but unfortunately we did not get to experience this. We went to check in and were told there were no more rooms left and we were being upgraded to a suite in the back. We thought this was a good thing but the "suite" was a run down apartment behind the actual hotel building and not apart of the hotel at all. It was a spacious room but it was not comforting and was cold and dark with no matching furniture. The only thing good was the location even though we did not have a beach view and the food at the restaurant (which turns into a gay bar at night, we were unaware of this). Overall it wasn't a good experience and we would not stay here again.

Hotel Right on the Beach

This hotel was exactly what I was looking for! Located right on the beach with a great happy hour (quite cheap)! Staff was friendly. The room was no-frills, but I was pleased with it's condition. Wish we could've controlled the AC though. It did get kind of chilly. Over all, a good stay. I loved being able to get drinks on the beach!

Great but not so great

Great location near the old san juan, right on the beach, near casinos, and lots of night life. However, staff was rude, there is no room service, not a gay destination any more and new owner is not gay friendly at all. Rooms are extremely small.

Previous bad remarks were on the mark

Indifferent staff, unfriendly and suspicious.They act like they expect you to be a problem. Had to leave a blank signed credit card slip. I Had to insist they return it the next day at check out. They held it until someone went to check out the room. I don't know how they could tell damage since the room was so poor to begin with E.G.cigarette burns and dings in the furniture. I can't say I wasn't warned because I read bad reports before I booked. I guess I thought they couldn't be that bad. We couldn't wait to move to another hotel which cost twice as much but was ten times the value.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

San Juan is expensive and this place is RELATIVELY cheap. If you are young and don't mind roughing it or expect much this may well work for you.
