Condado Beach is very rough and we actually had to get out because the water was so strong and it was pulling us in. It is very isolated and graffiti and garbage around. A lot of homeless in this area. Would not recommend.

Average beach, but a great place to watch the sunset during the winter time. Waves aren't too big, so good for the kiddos to swim too.

Husband and daughter enjoyed snorkeling and seeing more than 20 differnt kinds of fish. I enjoyed just laying by the beautiful water. The water was warm and so calm.. Watching the waves hitting against the stones... you could just sit her all day!

We loved this beach. They had horses to ride on the beach if you wanted to. It was picture perfect. Restaurants close also. Not far from Old San Juan.

The beach in front of the Marriott hotel is well groomed. However, the area to the east needs attention. Chair rentals are $5. There were red flag warnings all week when we were here. Strong undertow, rip currents and large waves. Do not leave children...More
