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.
Key facts
  • 96 guestrooms, all of which have either ocean or lagoon views
  • On-site adult and kiddie pools
  • 4 meeting rooms
  • On-site Perurrican restaurant
  • 24-hour valet parking service
Neighborhood
The hotel offers direct access to the beach, making it ideal for those that enjoy sandy strolls and water-related activities. The concierge offers guests pointers on where to rent a kayak, jet ski, or paddle surf for some fun on the Condado Lagoon. Art lovers will marvel at the exhibitions of the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico, before shuffling down the quaint cobblestoned streets of Old San Juan. When you get tired of sea and sand, the only tropical rainforest of the U.S. National Park Service is roughly half an hour's drive away.
Hints and tips
Attentive staff at the restaurant will prepare a refreshing tropical drink or fruit slices to keep guests relaxed and fed while at the poolside or beach.

Nice Ocean View, Bare Room, Poor Service

"Free breakfast" is advertised under the amenities (the main reason we chose this hotel over a few others), but was not honored by the hotel. After multiple calls and complaints, the hotel gave us breakfast vouchers for the very last day --and it turned out to be just bread and juice/coffee. Disappointing. The room was bare, mostly clean, and simplistic. The view of the waves was lovely, but we were not allowed to open the windows. The beach front location is excellent, however. If they honored their advertisement for free breakfast and weren't so unfriendly about it, the San Juan Beach Hotel would have been somewhat okay, given the moderately low price.

What's grosser than gross...

I read all the reviews (after booking a hotel and air package, my mistake), and thought "how bad can it really be?" Well the answer to that is WORSE! I thought "oh it's just people who are used to the "American standard" or it's always the people who complain that write reviews. I can put up with a lot, but this place was just gross! I've stayed at hundreds of hotels all over the world with varying standards and this place is probably the worst, if not it's at the very bottom. The positives of this hotel and there are some, are; the location (perfect), the shower, and the tv, and of course the price (but not value for price). And to name a few of the negatives; the vomit stained bed-skirt, the indeterminable "wet spot" on the carpet (that didn't dry all week), and smell of urine once the AC was turned down. I don't think, no I'm sure that housekeeping only added towels to the bathroom as part of the "cleaning", as there was always hair and toothpaste still in the sink after "cleaning". The pool area was okay, they could have used a broom to sweep up after the late night parties, and the lobby was okay too. The elevators alternated working, and I was very surprised not to get stuck in one. One more tip - don't get the US$ 7 (plus tax) breakfast, the coffee was watered down sludge, and just not worth it. What this place needs is proper management, and a staff that actually do the job their hired to do. Telling also was at check-out that the desk clerk did not ask how my stay was....

Perfect Location

Hotel is in a great location. I rented a car for my week's stay and the valet service at the hotel was great. Fast and available 24 hours for in and out service. The rooms need updating and windows could use a washing. If you don't spend a lot of time in your room then this is a good stay. I would recommend this hotel especially for the location and price and valet service.

Great getaway

I would definitely stay there again. The rooms are clean and orginized, the staff is so friendly and helpful, the location couldn't be better, it's surround of great restaurants and the beach it's very nice! The only thing I would say it wa missing it was a mini fridge in the room, other than that, my stray was very pleasant.

NO HOT WATER

I had no hot water on the entire stay. Tried to talk to the staff about it and they thought it was not a big deal. The carpets were dirty looking and the beds and pillows were very uncomfortable. Will never stay here again.

Good value. Good experience

I read a lot of negative commments about this hotel before. I was nervous checking in. This place turn out to be of great value! Room is clean, although furniture is old. Staff is ok, and the restaurant downstairs is wonderful! You can eat and drink by the sea. There is no smell in my room at all. Elevator is working well. Considering the price, which is half of the rate with nearby hotels, it's a good place to stay. It's within walking distance to the luxury shops, and 5 minutes drive from old San Juan. Parking is 18+tax/day, which is a bit expensive. If you go a few feet, parking is only 8/day.
