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!!!!!!

Hotel was a thirty second walk from the beach and a minute walk from Condado's main strip. We weren't looking for anything fancy and after reading the reviews expected two star quality at best however our expectations were exceeded when we checked in. Nice little hotel and friendly staff with a great location.

Sandy Beach Hotel Stay

The front desk staff at Sandy Beach Hotel were very helpful and friendly. Knowledgeable about the area. Definitely has a manana feel in a good way. The hotel sits 150 feet from the beach and across the street from the Marriott Casino and hotel. Its one block from the #21 bus that will take you straight into downtown Old San Juan. A fleet of taxis sit across the street so getting around was so easy. The beds could use updating not the most comfortable. We enjoyed San Juan and the people would definitely go back to Sandy beach.

Front desk staff recommended 3 restaurants with in a 2 block walk. Onosca Restaurant had an really good Red snapper in garlic sauce. One of the most talked up places was Yerba Bueno it was ok for dinner but $$$Go for lunch instead about $25 for 2 meals.

Nice

The hotel was a descent little hotel within 30 steps of the beach. Which is just what I wanted, the size of the room was a little on the small side, but that was perfectly fine being my partner and I were always out site seeing! The room itself was a little outdated but once again we didn't spend much time in the room. The roof top terrace was pretty cool to enjoy the late night cocktail. I do have to say I was kinda concerned about the doors locking after 8:00pm. Had us wondering if the area was really safe or not? The real issue I had was the fact that we would only get 2 bath towels and no wash clothes, and maybe the fact that the sheet was to small for the bed and yet the comforter was a couple sizes to big. Really if the Sandy Beach Hotel would just upgrade some things it would be perfect! The hotel is close to shops restaurants, the beach, bars, and bus line! Everything was within walking distance, which is nice for any tourist! BIG props for the hotel staff for being very helpful during the duration of our stay! I highly recommend this hotel.

Good 2 star hotel great location

This 2 star hotel is just right for a night or two or if you only spend sleep time- aaweek would be fine.A lovely sandy beach with good surf is at the end of the dead end street. We could hear the surf from our small but clean, cheery room. Restaurants, taxis, public busses all right there.

Decent

Acceptable cleanliness, friendly and helpful front desk staff. Acceptable comfort level, mattress was fine. Everything worked fine. There was only one hanger in the closet, and there was no balcony, but that was fine as I don't go to a hotel to hang out on the balcony, especially when the hotel is 30 meters from the beach. Elevator does not stop even with the floor on floors 2 and 3. First floor rooms essentially have no view.
