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.

Realistic**

I went with my friends to celebrate my birthday for a weeked. I booked the day before and was so happy with the outcome. What i paid on online was exactly what i was chargwd not a $ more. The only thing i can say buyer beware is that there are no real amenities. No mini fridge, no bath or pool towels. The wifi is very low signal. We never had a chance to spend time at the pool except for dipping our feet in. But we were well taken care of and as someone who has stayed at many high rated hotels i was not dissapointed. Absolutely plan on going back!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

We checked all local parking areas and if you have a car hotel valet at $18 per night is the best bet. Not only money wise but convenience wise as well. They are organized and attentive when it comes to your car or rental.

Weekend trip

This was a great hotel. From the outside it looks very sketchy because it needs fresh paint. But inside it was real nice inside. The elevators were not working at check in so had to go up the stairs to the 9th floor. Besides from that everything else was great. The pool is very nice and the view from the room is amazing.

San Juan Beach Hotel

The San Juan Beach Hotel is in a great location! It's steps away from the beach and the ambiance was great - there was a beautiful staircase and chandelier when you walk in the hotel. The room was clean and the value was great. The main downside was the lack of amenities - you only received 2 large bath towels per room and there were no extra clean towels available before at least 3:00pm (and also no laundry service in the hotel or nearby). But there were lots of restaurants/shops right near the hotel and the staff was very friendly.

If you like snorkeling, I would try to find a guide who knows about the wildlife in the area. The boat tours are great, but it's helpful to have a guide who can show you the best spots to find fish!

Waterfront Bliss

Stayed at the hotel for six nights for a caribbean vacation. It was really nice compared to many of the other reviews on here. The rooms are basic and some are being remodeled and the others are clean but very ordinary with a small tube tv and no coffee maker or mini fridge. They are clean though and the view from the ocean front side is amazing! The lagoon view is not special so worth the few extra dollars. The staff is friendly and moved us to a ocean view for free because we wanted a room with a king bed instead of two twins. The pool is very clean and nice and the sitting area is never full and is very relaxing. Drinks at the connecting bar (not restaurant) are average to pricey ($7-8) but they are very good and made with top shelf alcohol. I would stay here again but if I had the extra money I would try hard to spend a little extra to get an all inclusive away from san juan as the food in this area is expensive and it feels touristy compared to some more unique areas of the island. DEFINITELY go up to El Yunque peak when in Puerto Rico it will take your breath away!!

The taxis here do not have meters and they will make up prices at the destination so be SURE to ask the price to your destination before getting in cab... these can also be negotiated if too high

you get what you pay for

The title says it all. It's a 2-star hotel in an expensive, touristic area. So, it's probably a good deal for what you pay. The rooms are very big, but rather empty, not very clean, old carpets, the paint goes off the walls, the curtains do not work, half of the light bulbs in my room were not working (and they did not replace them, even when I asked them so), the water is not always very warm, no fridge/mini bar, one of the elevators did not work. In a nutshell, this hotel has the absolutely necessary facilities (bed, tv, table, bath tub, toilet). The location is very good, but I don't know how it compares to much cheaper hotels/hostels in old San Juan, since I heard that those are much cheaper.

Across the street from the hotel, these is a nice coffee place called picachos, where they have very good coffee, sandwiches, and smoothies. It's a bit pricey, but they have local/organic things.

basic place to stay

Good value if you intend to stay and do activities else where Lack of gym and beach access can be a big minus. The hotel could do a better job providing information as to what's available to do around the area.

Not too bad

Get what you pay for. Rooms were MOLDY. Cant lay out on beach there- too rocky and water too rough to get in. Not bad for a room to just sleep in. Beds and showers were clean but average.
