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

great value steps from the beach

Great location about 20 feet from Condado beach, simple but comfortable rooms, friendly staff. Parking for check in was a bit difficult on the street but they have a deal with the parking garage across the street for $18 per day. Park there first and they will validate the ticket.

perfect for what we wanted

This hotel was great. The only negative was that since I booked for two people we got one double bed. I was traveling with my granddaughter who is 16. When we arrived, it was late so we waited til the next day to speak to them about getting two beds. The hotel was booked but they switched us two days later. The staff was great as well. Everyone was very helpful, pleasant and polite. One of our tours was cancelled due to rain and they offered to rebook it for us but we had others booked and decided not to bother. The beach was literally steps from the front door. The breakfast that was included was not much but it was do-able. There were other places to have breakfast within walking distance and you could get something hot at the hotel. My granddaughter had homework to do while we were there and there were many places to sit and do it. There was even a rooftop we used in the evening. All our tours picked us up at the Marriott which is right next door. We felt that we had all the conveniences without all the costs of a large hotel. Condado beach area is very nice and buses are at the corner of the street. They will take you to old San Juan for 75 cents. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. The hotel was clean and we got fresh towels daily. They also had towels to go to the beach.

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".

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!

Great location!

Hotel was in an excellent location right on the beach! Room was small but clean and comfortable. You don't go on vacation to sit in your room. Take a kayak tour of the Bio- bay it is amazing. The Camuy Caves are not worth it, very dissappointed there. Overall a wonderful place to visit. If you want fancy this is not the hotel for you but, if you want value and comfort I suggest this for your stay!
