Minimalist design with fresh, white decor sets the scene for the Beach Hotel, San Juan. One of the more affordable hotels on the oceanfront in San Juan's Condado area, its guestrooms have spectacular water views, including the Condado Lagoon. For a bit of relaxation, lay out and soak up the sun next to one of the crystal-clear swimming pools that both kids and adults can enjoy. Hungry? Please your palate with a meal from the Perurrican Restaurant & Lounge. Garbo is an exclusive boutique in the hotel, inviting guests to stop in for a browse.

Mold, poor ventilation

The sizes of the rooms were good and the staff was nice. The hotel does have poor ventilation. Our room smelled like mold and our bed sheets and towels always felt damp due to the poor ventilation. Sheets are only changed once every 3 days. Service comes in to make your bed and change your towels but the room is not "cleaned." I would not stay there again.

My review of San Juan Beach Hotel

WHEN WALKING IN HOTEL YOU CAN SEE THAT IT'S NOT UP TO PAR. THERE IS NO RESTAURANT IN HOTEL, BAR IS NEARLY ALWAYS CLOSED DUE TO INSUFFICIENT MERCHANDISE. ENTERING THE ROOMS THE SMELL OF MILDEW JUST SMACKS YOU. THE CLEAN TOWELS ARE LIMITED, THE BATHTUB WAS NOT CLEANED ONE TIME FROM THE TIME WE WERE THERE TO THE TIME WE LEFT. THERE WAS NO WATER PRESSURE. THE BED LINEN WAS LEFT FOR TWO DAYS AT A TIME. WORST OF ALL NO SECURITY AND ONE OF OUR NIGHTS AT THE HOTEL WAS JUST PURE HELL WITH OTHER GUEST IN THE FLOOR SCREAMING, RUNNING AND SLAMMING DOORS ALL NIGHT WITH PARTYING UNTIL 6AM.

San Juan beach hotel

Unfortunately, the experience that me and my wife had was definately NOT what we had in mind. I mean that not in a nice way. Firstable, the hotel didn't have a lobby. It was under construction!The room was disgusting, not to mentioned I had to call three times for them to fix the shower. I am originally from Puerto Rico and I want it to show my wife this beautiful Island. Definately NOT what I want it her to experienced. The pictures you have posted in your website about this hotel are definately not updadated. I don't understand why they are charging so much, especially when they are under construction. They shall not be allow to operate under those conditions. It is a health hazard and a safety hazard to stay there.

not worth the price of admission

Room was totally enclosed. you could not open a window to take in the night air. The elevators were constantly being repaired, the hallways were dull and smelly and the ice machine was out of order. I'll make sure that I never stay at or recommend this hotel to anyone.

HORRIBLE

THERE WAS CONSTUCTION IN THE LOBBY AND THE HOTEL WAS AT A TERRIBLE LOCATION. THE HOTEL ROOM WAS SMALL AND DIRTY. THE HOTEL NAME IS THE PERFECT WAY TO CON PEOPLE INTO MAKING A RESERVATION TO STAY THER. WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A RESORT TYPE SETTING ON THE BEACH WITH WONDERFUL SERVICE.. WE WERE TOTALLY WRONG. WE CANCELLED OUR RESERVATION AND STAYED SOMEWHERE ELSE THE SAME DAY WE GOT THERE. WE WOULD NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL EVER AGAIN EVEN IF IT WAS FOR FREE.....

Take this hotel out of your listing!

We think that this hotel need to be canceled by the City. Is under remodeling and you can find construction staff everywhere, including lobby and other public areas. We stay 2 nights and never got a room service. We claim for towels and a partial refund and the manager offered an "American full breakfast" to compensate but it open so late for us despite that the promise for 7 AM... it opened after 8 AM! The price didn't compensate the service. You can find better hotels for that price range and similar location. Just try to get a phone communication with them. We try several times to confirm our arrival time and room we liked. We make a reservation for a king size bed and when we arrive there (on time) the room was not available! Etc. etc...

worst hotel experience I have ever had

Due to the adds, we were exxpecting a great stay; but it was the worst experience we ever had in a hotel. Not only was it under contruction; the managment did not seem to care we were displeased. They made no effort to compensate us. The rooms were dirty and i had to call two times to get them to service the it. The part of the hotel that was functional was dirty. Perhaps when they complete the construction it will be better??
