An awe-inspiring architectural achievement in Puerto Rico's Tropical Modernism movement, the La Concha Renaissance Resort Hotel offers an incredible place to stay in San Juan.  With instant access to the Condado beach, this is the perfect place to put your feet up and enjoy spectacular ocean views. Kids are entertained with the spacious game room, and guests can take a dip in one of the three outdoor pools, including the Sereno Infinity Pool. Eat fresh in reflective pool surroundings at the luxurious Perla seafood restaurant, where you'll find a pretty extensive wine list. Work it off with one of the complimentary fitness classes, and then get ready to try your luck at the casino. Those on business can stay chilled on the Solera Upper & Pool Deck meeting space.

One of the best of San Juan

The location is great, the facility is great. Awesome being right on the ocean and with so many options for pool and hot tub. Very relaxing even in the rain which may be nearly be daily, but doesn't last long. Sometimes hard to communicate to staff appropriately in English. The only other drawbacks were the cost of food and more so drinks in the bar/grill as they were a bit high. Also it would be nice for more options of Puerto Rican cuisine which there are few. La Perla restaurant a beautiful restaurant in architecture and decor, incredible food and the staff incredibly helpful. Awesome experience. Also very awesome to be close to the park and the last Sunday of each much festival in the park. Can't wait to return...

Great! Perfect Birtday Experience

This place was awesome.I give it a solid A. The only discrepancy I had was that my jet stream did not work on my tub, which probably could have been rectified if I reported it. The customer service was A plus and the amenities and aesthetics was top notch!

Long weekend at La Concha

La Concha was fabulous! The pools and beaches were clean, easily accessible, and scenic. I was pleasantly surprised by the fitness center and bars/ restaurants. The staff at La Concha were also top notch... couldn't ask for nicer folks.

Cousin's Birthday Weekend Getaway

On the positive side, the hotel, pools, and beach are beautiful! On the negative side, the restaurant food and drink prices were expensive and the staff needed better customer service.

If you don't want to spend $13 for a vodka with Sprite, there is a liquor store two blocks away from the hotel.

Glorious views in gracious setting

I spent a thoroughly relaxing nine days at La Concha in early December, for the second year - returning because the first experience was so terrific - and again I was delighted with the gracious and friendly staff; the comfort and amenities of the hotel; and the setting that boasts both lush interior gardens and unspoiled ocean views. The in-house restaurants also offer delightful food, in venues that range from totally casual (Solara) to elegant (La Perla) with options in-between (the Italian Voga, and the lobby sushi bar). My only issue with this hotel is the apparent under-staffing of the housekeeping department on Sundays: when I checked-in on a Sunday, I had to wait an hour-and-a-half after the stated 4pm check-in time until my room was actually available and the following Sunday (I stayed for more than a week) my room still hadn't been cleaned by 4pm. Once I called and asked for maid service, it was cleaned fairly quickly, but the problem doesn't appear to be a one-time only occurrence and management should try to address it in a more effective way. Also, be forewarned that if you have a room in the hotel building rather than the Tower Suites building, the weekend party noise from the atrium can be high-volume. The rooms are, however, equipped with additional interior glass doors that cut the noise down significantly, so I - who am not a night owl - don't have trouble sleeping even during peak partying hours! The location on the beach and the glorious "serenity" pool overlooking the ocean, really can't be beat. The rooms feature a wall of sliding glass doors that open completely to let you commune with the bright blue or moonlit skies (although you can still catch the roar of the surf with the doors closed, if you're not a nature buff). Request a room with a full ocean view for the full "paradise" experience.

Just Awesome

I was there for 4 days to get away from school and work, both of which I do full-time and it was everything that I expected and needed. It is beach front. The staff caters and anticipate your every need. The grounds are kept in perfect condition. Last and certainly not least, the restaurants on site are all amazing
