San Juan hotel offers character and comfort on Isla Verde Beach

Few Isla Verde hotels have the personality of the Beach House. On the beach behind the boutique hotel sit huge canopy beds for lounging. Entrance to the hotel's beach club comes with the use of towels and lounge chairs, massage therapists (fees apply), and attendants who dispense sunblock, gelato and frosty drinks. The hotel's Cafe la Plage spills out onto a palm tree-shaded patio, which opens seamlessly to the sand. When the sun goes down, the patio becomes a nighttime hot spot lit warmly with candles and tiki torches.

Highlights
  • Located on Isla Verde Beach
  • Private beach canopy beds
  • Beach attendants
  • On-site restaurant
Rooms

The cozy rooms at the Beach House have a bright, contemporary look that mimics the coastline outside their windows, with thick drapes and duvets the color of dunes and seagrape leaves. Leather headboards and stainless steel lamps give the rooms a European feel. High-speed wireless Internet access is available in every room. Each bathroom has a shower. All of the rooms have a flat-screen TV with DVD player, iPod docking stations and L'occitane products.

Dining

Cafe La Plage is an on-site brasserie serving lunch and dinner. Specialties such as seafood ceviche are served either in the breezy indoor dining room or an outdoor patio. Guests can request a table on the beach surrounded by tiki torches. The cafe at the Beach House is closed on Mondays.

Entertainment

On weekend nights, the patio lights are dimmed, a movie screen is raised and independent films are shown. Thursdays are the nights for "Jazz Under the Stars" at Café la Plage.

Recreation

Step out the back of the Beach House and onto Isla Verde Beach. The hotel's 90-foot-long yacht, the Bateau la Plage, is available for charter (fees apply). The Beach House also offers a "boot camp beach workout," every Saturday for a fee.

Chic but not a place to stay.

The Beach House has a very chic atmosphere but is not geared for overnight stays. The rooms are tiny and the office parties and wedding receptions that are booked there can go late into the night. The walls are paper thin and you can hear conversations going on without much trouble. The water in the shower was only luke warm, although all the rooms were recently remodeled and are clean and well maintained. We had to change rooms soon after check-in beacause the tv did not work. The food at the restraunt was pricey and even the salad seemed to have been salted. The portions were good but the salt content made them unenjoyable. Parking was free and off the street but every evening you are likely to be blocked in or out because of the parties as every square inch of the lot was used to cram in cars.

Stay if you will not be spending a lot of time in the room!

I do not recommend this hotel if you are traveling with young children. There was a lot of construction going on but staff was friendly & accomodating. Very cool atmosphere for the young, hip crowd. The restaurant turns into a night club so if you go to bed early, don't plan on getting much sleep with the thumping music & drunk laughter. I liked the location (restaurants, rental car & stores within walking distance). The hotel food was not great. Luckily, there is a small restaurant/bar across the street which serves authentic Puerto Rican food. Laying on the beach & sipping margaritas was very relaxing. Room was very small & bed was not too comfy.

The Beautiful Beach House

The Beach House has a very contemporary and modern feel. The staff was very eager to help and extremely freindly. The atmosphere was amazing, where else can you dine, relax, or party on the beach all at the same place?

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

If you get in late the restuarant in the hotel has really amazing food and the mojitos rock! If you touring the forts don't walk from one to the other, take the free trolley, then take it throught town for food and shopping. Cafe Puerto Rico is another great restuarant you don't want to miss, order the mofongo.
