"Handy because it was close to the beach."
The picture makes it look like it is on the beach, which it is not. The experience was ok. It was nice to have a little lower price close to the beach.

"Very impressive"
I wrestled with the idea of.choosing this hotel but took the leap and I'm so happy I did! The description on the site does it no justice. The hotel is right on the beach and the front patio looks right at the ocean. There is a great little restaurant right on site and the hotel staff is great. They also give great advice on non tourist places to visit for food and night life. I can't express enough how perfect this hotel is for people who don't plan on being in the room a lot and just want a clean comfy place to say. LOCATION is unbeatable.

"Great Place to stay"
This is the second time I've stayed at Sandy Beach. The rooms are nice, but not large. The rooms have always been clean. The staff is always helpful. The motel is just one building off the beach and the beach is always clean. It's just a block away from downtown where you can find anything you need from food, drug stores and shopping.

"Great for budget travelers!"
First time in San Juan and this motel (yes, technically called a hotel, but it was more motel-like) was a great, inexpensive choice. First the great things: Sandy Beach is indeed very close to the beach! The location in Condado was fantastic- near restaurants and other resorts and their amenities, like parking and Hertz rental. Sandy Beach was also very clean and the updated bathroom was small but had great tile. The price was also incredible. The downsides? There was a screened window in the bathroom that never fully closed so the room was always humid and outside noise creeped in. The only lighting in the room was overhead, no bedside lamps or sconces. No in-room hair dryer, mini fridge, free safe, or full-length mirror. The whole room, bathroom included, was tiled and the outside ramp to the hotel was steep and tiled and was slippery when wet or in certain shoes. There were also several pigeons roosting on my windowsill and on the AC unit. Their coos were nice, but they left a lot of droppings on the ledge so you really didn't want to open the windows. The AC was nice and strong though, and the room came with DirectTV, with a limited selection of channels but half were in English, half Spanish. Definitely adequate though. In all, Sandy Beach is a great inexpensive motel for budget travelers.

"Great Location to Candado Beach!"
Overall It was a very disappointing experience in relation to the hotel and accommadations, however; it was Puerto Rico and you can't beat the location steps away form the beach. The beach and everything you need is right beside the hotel, its just the hotel. Don't get me wrong its not a horrible hotel, it's just that it need more of a upgrade considering everything else near it looks more modern. Not a horrible experience, but its not the marriott which is right beside it with some of the same views and you can actually have a ocean front room. It offers ocean front rooms however you dont get the ocean front view becasue there is a aomplex blocking the view so stay at another location for that , but to lay your head and be in safe evironment you cant beat the price. Oh and there is a GAY bar next to the hotel so if thats your thing your in luck!!

"Sandy Beach Hotel"
The location is to die for. It is only a few steps from Condado Beach. Everyone there was pleasant and professional. The only complaints are: 1. too few TV stations ( for when you are relaxing) 2. the bed was too hard 3. the bathroom was tiny 4. wi-fi connection was poor to fair Would I go back again? Yes, but next time I would want a better (bigger) room.

Great that it was right on the beach! If it were anywhere else I wouldnt have paid more than $65. The employees were very friendly. The room was adequate... Broken window knob= window did not work. Sand in sink, on floor and in shower upon arrival. We stayed on a saturday and the techno rumbled us until 4am the next morning, accompanied by loud screaming at all hours. Needless to say, I did not sleep well.

Great location near the beach but the room need to be updated. Air conditioner very noisy, remote for TV didn't work, mattresses very uncomfortable. When booking the room online had requested a queen size bed but was given a room with 2 single beds. When ask to change room was told no rooms available with queen size bed. Only positive experience is the staff. They were very courteous and friendly.

The hotel was amazing, very convenient to everythinggg! The beach is a step away from the hotel, it's a nice location to get around to old San juan, the city, the mall, everything is no more than 15-20 minutes away. The hotel staff was amazing & very helpful. Whatever you needed they were there to assist you. For those who don't speak very good spanish, they were able to help out & be understood in English. I would refer this hotel to anyone traveling to Puerto Rico.

The hotel was okay, it looked a little rundown. The room was really small it seem like a dorm room. The bathroom was extra small the towels and washcloth did not seem like it was clean. There was no amenities there the bed was smaller then what the hotel staff said it was. The great thing about the hotel is its right on the beach and real close to alot if restaurants and bars.

"Sandy stays at Sandy Beach Hotel"
The hotel is a excellent bargain. It is 1/4 block from the beach behind a beach front condo. There are beach chairs for rental at $5.00 per day, umbrellas for $10.00 per day or depending on how long you are staying, you could do what I did and go to Walgreens and buy a five position sand chair for $10.00 and use it the entire time. I gave it to a couple who were staying longer when I left. The hotel is so close to everything. It is on Condado Ave and one block from the beach is a 24hr Walgreens and CVS. There is a booth if you made a right at this corner down 1/3 block that sells side trips to the falls, kayaking, ziplining etc. I had dinner at "latin by sea" and lunch at "orozio" both were excellent and reasonable. There is a dunkin donuts, Wendy's and Starbucks all within a block or two of the hotel. The location could not of been better for me. I go to the Marriott in the evenings for live latin music and dancing. Friday and Sat night two bands starting at 8pm changing at 10pm until midnight. So if you want an inexpensive hotel with a clean room and bathroom close to everything this is good bet. I will stay there next time I go.

"Great spot if you just need a convenient place"
The price wasn't too expensive so I really want expecting much. It does not have a pool but since it's next to the ocean that was okay. The waves there ate pretty big. I'm six feet tall and after just walking out to my pelvis some of the waves would go over my head. The area is Condado which is very touristy and full of things to do. The hotel itself, however, left a lot to be desired. Though the staff was friendly and helpful, it should be noted that my cleaning was not daily but considering I was there four nights the every other day cleaning worked fine. The bathroom and shower are tiny tiny tiny. That plus humidity of Puerto Rico means that of you wet the bathroom floor it won't dry for a while. Though the bathroom was not the cleanest or most comfortable it was more than suitable as just a cheap place to sleep every night. The parking they have is for does that are always taken on the street and a public parking lot across the street that they have a low daily rate plan of $18 at the time of writing this.

"If you want easy access to the beach....."
If you want to literally be step from the beach, this is it. This is why we chose it. However I probably would have paid more for better accommodations. Parking is practically non existant, you can have to park at the Marriott for 15$ across the street. I will say the AC worked great in the rooms which was prob the best feature. If you aren't looking to spend a lot of time in the room and want to be close to the beach, it's fine for the price I guess. Not overly impressed.

"Overnight in San Juan"
This hotel is very conveinent to all the restaurants & clubs in the Condado area. Parking is a challenge, you have the option of parking @ the Marriott for about $16 per day. We were fortunate to find parking on the street besides the hotel, but ran the risk of getting a citation. Both our rooms were clean, beds comfortable. The shower in my room had issues with not draining quickly. Only Two Bath Towels were provided & one had a hole in it. Aside for that fine for one night stay.

"Great Location!!"
When we arrived, they let us check in which was great! But the hotel did not have electricity so a construction worker had to help me carry our luggage up the stairs ( we were in the 3rd floor mind you). It seems the hotel is severely under staffed since they had to ask a construction worker to carry our luggage. The electricity came back about 20 mins later. The room was good, not luxurious but adequate for the price. The Hotel is a few steps from the beach and one block away from Ashford Street which is the happening street in Condado. Super close to El Viejo San Juan, about 10 mins away in car. The only other complaint, that goes with the hotel being understaffed, is that when we called to get new towels the man that answered the main desk told us to go down and pick them up. They also only had one hair drier. But If you can deal with the above then you should be fine. The location is great and the price is great also!

"Good Stay"
We had a wonderful stay! The room was very convenient as it was on the fist floor. We would have liked the room to have been swept better as it seamed that the sand would move from one corner to the next. The hotel is under repairs so we could see that was on of the things that brought the sand into the room. Maybe the door could go all the way down to prevent the wind from blowing the sand in. The curtains are too low and it lets the light from the post outside the window make the room very bright and hard to sleep with it in our eyes. Maybe moving the beds away from the window would make it better.
