Great Price, Great location!

Hotel is right off the beach. There is a lot of shopping, restaurants and casinos in walking distance. You can get a bus at the corner for a 20 minute ride to Old San Juan. All staff are friendly and accommodating. Wouldn't go to any other hotel

Perfect location getaway

Perfect location it is close to the beach, and I say close I mean like 5 steps away from it. There are restaurants everywhere. The trolley for old San Juan is right around the corner (its free by the way).The staff was super friendly and helpful. They recommended restaurants and gave us advice on the public transportation. Great place for Travelers that are into homey hotels. We are going back soon.

Perfect Location getaway

I really enjoyed my stay here. Staff was very helpful and you are seconds from the beach. Power went out but that was not the hotel's fault. Rooftop view is lovely. Location can't be beat :)

PERFECT location, Clean & Simple, Great staff

If you're looking for an amazing location with the beach less than a quarter block away at the end of the street, nice and helpful staff, and simple, old but clean rooms then book Sandy Beach Hotel. Wal greens, Star bucks, restaurants, bus to Old San Juan, and souvenir shops are a block away on the strip. There are flat screen tvs with cable in rooms, a/c, and a safe. No pool but small rooftop patio to lay in sun and read. This is not a 5 star luxury hotel by any means but if that's not your priority then this is a great choice. I found an incredible deal on or bitz so it was more than worth it!

Walgreens, Starbucks, restaurants, bus to Old San Juan, and souvenir shops are just a block away on the strip. Gay beach area 2 minute walk down beach near Atlantic Hotel. And the beach is less than a quarter block away from the hotel door at the other end of the block - PERFECT!

Good Value for the Budget Traveler

The Sandy Beach hotel is located about a $20 (includes tip) ride from the airport to the very trendy Condado area and a short municipal bus ride to Old (Viejo) San Juan. The hotel is about a half block away from the beach, and a half block from the fancy Marriott Hotel. One can catch the 21 municipal bus on Ashford Avenida for 75 cents at the green Parada sign that will take you to Old San Juan and for another 50 cents take the ferry across the bay and $3 cab fare in Catano and visit the Bacardi Rum Factory: 2 free rum drinks and free admission to tour. The Hotel is a half block from a Walgreens where one can get all sorts of stuff. It is Not the Marriott, but good value for the budget traveler.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

On the way back from Old (Viejo) San Juan go to the Bus Terminal (near pier area) and catch the 21 municipal bus back to Condado area for 75 cents. They only accept quarters, so be ready. You will not be going back via Ashford Avenida, so ask the the bus driver to let you out near "Hotel Marriott".

Great place

Sandy Beach is a small and nice place to stay. Not fancy at all but nice and quiet. First time visiting PR. Very professional and helpful staff. Willing to offer information about locations with no problems. Nice place to stay to just get away. Location right on the beach approximately 10 feet from the hotel. They offer continental breakfast which was fine. Just a place to sleep and wake and go on your adventures. I would recommend to all that just want to relax without all of the amenities. Will visit again!!!!!!
