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.

Wonderful Romantic Getaway

Our first time in Puerto Rico couldn't have been better! Being on the beach and being so close, within walking distance of everything. The Perfect trip for Thanksgiving for us. This stay was so convenient. All of the staff were so pleasant, this was definitely worth it! We can't wait to return - this is our new vacation getaway.

A bit of a headfake

I have spent quite a bit of time eating & drinking at the Atlantic Beach Bar & Grill and was always super impressed by the space and the boutique quality of the lobby/lounge of the hotel. When I found the deal on a room, I jumped at it only to find that once inside the hotel, it's a completely different experience. The elevator & stairwell looked like something from a run-down building. The room was tiny with one double bed and that's basically it (maybe a chair). It DID have a flatscreen TV so that was cool. AND free wifi!

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

It is worth it if you need a place to lay your head. The bar has a good happy hour Mon-Fri and there is a lot of great food/drinking places all walking distance. They are on a good spot of beachfront. Just needs a bit of renovation on the inside!

Bang for the buck

The location and value beats everything. Condado is the happening place in San Juan and the hotel is right in the middle of it all. The staff were super nice. I will stay here again.

terrific hotel, perfect location

This is the perfect place to stay in Condado on a budget - the hotel location is perfect, the staff is friendly, and the hotel bar / restaurant is perfectly located for any meal of day or just to hide out from the rain. The one downside is that the facilities weren't always the nicest (i.e. mold and rust in shower, dust and dirt in common bathroom corners). But great place to stay by the beach. Also worth noting is that the hotel is located right next to a LGBT beach, so may not be a great fit for everyone.

compromise

The staff and the location were the best part of this hotel. The building needs attention but the price was right.

Café Del Angel is a short walk, ate there the first day and never had cause to change. You must try the picante and buy some to take home.

there's hidden charges and surprises

When I made the reservation it did not specify that the hotel had a $100.00 deposit nor a $10.00 fee for parking per night plus parking was very limited. Also did not feel comfortable leaving my car keys at the front desk, because of parking space. Other than that staff were friendly, great location, rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable.

Horrible room but great location

The state of the room was really disgusting. I am all for simple living but this room lacked even the basic amenities and cleanliness. The room and bathroom had mosquitoes (about 7-8). My husband had mosquitoe bites all over on the arms and legs by the end of the stay. Looks like the cement was all over on the walls and closet due to renovation. The closet and drawers were in real bad shape. The rooms are extremely tiny and 2 people cant move around easily in the space. The bed sheets weren't really clean. The location was great and the patio bar had some decent food.

Pick a hotel in condado district which is modern neighborhood and has good nightlife. It's closer to old San Juan.

Minimalist lodgings

We were very pleased to see the hotel as close to the beach as it was! The lounge downstairs looked very inviting and even had a happy hour. I couldn't drink at the time so we didn't go but it looked great. The staff was very nice and gave us a lot of tips and advice in getting around and out of the city. We never would have found it to the Fajardo guas-guas without them! The rooms were small and there was no a/c control but it maintained a pretty comfy temp while we were there. The bed linens were very soft and clean. The bathroom was clean and the shower was very well pressured. It had soap dispensers but no soap however.. I would definitely return again if I am traveling on a budget :-)

Nice with needed improvements

$20 cab from and to the airport. The hotel is on a dead end block, but close to the street with bars, eateries. Upon entering the decor is eloquent then you walk toward the elevator and staircase beware. There are major improvements that need to be done. The room was comfortable only the door itself looked like a prison gate. Overall I sleep well and was comfortable for my overnight layover. The bar was the nicest area. I would not recommend this place for a long term stay.
