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.

Can't beat the view

The hotel is great for the basic beach person. In minutes you can leave your room and be on the beach, Amazing! Sadly the restaurant was closed every day. You also have to leave a deposit of $100 dollars that is returned to you at the end of your stay but they also charged me a separate nonrefundable service fee of $100 dollars. They said it was to pay for electricity and to have my room cleaned. So the $600 dollars I paid didn't include that? Very strange! I've stayed here several times and never had to pay a fee before. They also don't let you have anyone in your room. I've never heard of any place doing that. So the beach and it's beach bar are the only pluses to this place. I think I'll be looking for a new place to stay next year.

San Juan getaway

The hotel is right on a public beach but has no access from the hotel itself. The bar was only open at night. No food sold at the hotel. It was just a short walk from good food and shopping. The room was very small. No closet or place to hang clothes. The bathroom had a decent shower but just a pedestal sink and no place for toiletries. The elevator looks to have been broken for a long time so everyone had to walk up 3 or 4 stories. This place was not what it appeared to be online!

Atlántic Beach Hotel

Great gay environment, very gay friendly area & beach. The hotel lobby is nice to hang out, the rooms are nothing to wow. It's a a room, even the rooms with the views of the beautiful beach of Puerto Rico are not really rooms with views.

vacation with friends

The staff was helpful and rooms clean. I just wished the rooms were slightly bigger and you could adjust the air conditioner. It was cold. Location was great. Restaurants and shopping were in walking distance. We loved view of the ocean

Excellent hotel with a great location!

I stayed in an ocean front room #301. The room itself is spartan but just enough. The bathroom was small but recently updated and very nice. The bed was very comfortable and the housekeeping staff kept the room very clean. The only flaw with the room is that there is no individual temperature controls. The hallways were always nice and chilly but my room stayed a little too warm for my comfort. However, opening both windows at night made for a nice breeze. Bugs were not a problem. Hotel has a perfect oceanfront location with a great bar and a kitchen. The kitchen, however, was not open for most of my stay and the front dest said it was because it was too slow. The prices at the bar, even during happy hour were a little high, and you could find better deals a few minutes walk from the hotel. The front desk staff was always very friendly. I would not recommend this hotel for familes, but its great for couples and singles. For the price, this place can't be beat.
