we stayed because our cruise was delayed. the water is on the atlantic side so you should expect it to be rough. that said, it is great for boogie boards and body surfing. the beach is ok and you can relax in the lounges. lots of rocky sections so beware.

We took advantage of this beach twice on our stay - Evening Stroll and Afternoon Sun Worshiping. We stayed at the Holiday Inn and walked over to the beach crossing only one street and entering just past the open park. This is a free beach to enter and use. At first it appeared to be a Hotel only beach as... More

Took a stroll on this beach at sunset and just enjoyed listing to the waves. A well maintained and clean beach.. Great restaurants nearby.

I had to check the location to see if I had mistaken where I was based on some of the reviews. My wife and I walked along the beach from Cll Vendig back to the Vanderbilt. Every other building was either abandoned or under construction. While there was not muck litter, there was plenty of 'natural' debris along the path.... More

Condado Beach is easy to get to from Old San Juan, and free. We've been several times, and although it is small, and sometimes crowded if there are a lot of hotel guests and/or it's a holiday or weekend, it's always a fun scene! Great mix of families and people from all over. There are food and drink vendors on... More

We went there on a Monday night, we had a rental car, have to leave the car parked about 5 minutes away on a walking distance, but the actual beach is worth being there, a little small but is great, Sundays seems to be very pack (passed thru there) but when we went it was very nice and calm! great...

So there are two beaches in Condado - Condado Beach and Ocean Park. Condado beach is considered to be the "resort beach". It is groomed and there are chairs scattered along the beach. I'm not sure if these are restricted to people from the resort or not. The day what we went seemed a little rough and there were not... More

We wanted to take a day trip to Viesques but heard the ferry wait was 2 hours in the sun sooooo....we visited Condado. On my last trip, we were told we could go to La Concha and no one would care if we used their beach. We did it then and did it again yesterday. They charge $5/chair and $10/umbrella... More

I went Labor Day weekend and it was not at all crowded. There is a strip of restarants and hotels all along the beach. There's not much shopping there but that's not why I went so I'm fine with that.
