"Ok for Adults. Granddaughter uncomfortable."
Not here long enough for detailed comments. ..............;Genuine Expedia guest review
Our family is not used to staying at a hotel in this condition, it was dirty and gross. Just needed a night before and after a cruise, didn't know I needed a $300.00 room just to feel comfortable. My son actually slept in a chair, would not sleep in the beds. Great way to start a vacation. The worst thing was that all through our beautiful cruise our […] kids would ask us if we really had to stay at the hotel again when we got off the ship, they wanted to just sleep in the airport.

Hotel very old rooms very small doors slam all night long I wouldn't stay more than one maybe 2 nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff very friendly and helpful!!! Would go back, no problemGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriend and I stay here for 6 days. It was one of the cheaper places to stay when we were booking. We knew we did not want to be in a hotel most of the time we were in Puerto Rico, so we went cheap. The hotel is in a great location in Condado. It is just a few steps from the beach. There are pleanty of near by places to eat and it is right next […] door to the Marriot which has a casino. You get want you pay for here. Our room was small and had one window. The bathroom was small too. We had a Tv (had a few channels like news, sports, etc.), AC unit was in the window but worke just fine. There was also a desk in the room and the Wifi worked just fine. We would stay here again and would recommend it for those that are easy to please and will be outside more. The staff was very nice and they cleaned the room everyday. They got a cab to the airport when we left and gave us a lesson on the bus system. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, close to the beach and restaurants"
The hotel is right on the beach with a great staff and comfortable rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dont stay here if you want comfort like your home."
Overall not satisfied.. First thing was that the cable did not work and they had to switch us out of our room the next day, the toilet sits right in front of the wall and i could barely sit on it, and the sheets looked dirty.... Breakfast included a sugary breakfast, white toast, watered down juice, and sugary cereal. Will not be staying here EVER AGAIN! […] Only good thing about this hotel is location.

"Inexpensive, mostly clean, PERFECT location."
We stayed here for 5 days in February. The location is perfect. Steps from the beach, a block from Ashford Ave and a short bus/cab ride away from Old San Juan. Our room was small but had everything we needed. The room was clean, but the bathroom could have been cleaner. I actually bought a sponge at the Walgreens down the street to scrub the sink myself. […] As in FYI: no wash cloths, no blow dryer. The window air conditioner was old and a little loud, but it cooled the room well. The closet was large, but there were only 3 wire hangers in it. We got more from the front desk. Our room, 301, was on the south side of the hotel (not the ocean side). The noise from the bar next door was very loud on Friday and Saturday night. I would recommend a room on the other side of the building. We travel with ear plugs so that solved the problem. The wifi router was right outside our door so the signal was great. Overall we had an excellent stay at the Sandy Beach. The staff was friendly and the price and location were great. This is definitely a budget hotel. We just needed a place to sleep on this trip and this hotel fit the bill perfectly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice but old"
nice but old, close to the beach, clean, staff nice, breakfast was not acceptable negative as I went to the Hilton website and Expedia stole my log in ... was expecting Hilton family class of hotel and since this was so old, in the older part of the city, I was disappointed. IT was not part of the Hilton familyGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly and helpful staff, good location to the Old San Juan, beaches and restaurantsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
this hotel is clean and located right at the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great no fuss hotel. Wonderful staff"
Sandy Beach Hotel is a simple no fuss hotel right on the beach. Super sweet staff, late check out (they can hold your stuff for you after you check out), right off Ashford in the mist of the hotel strip. 10 minutes to old San Juan. It is the perfect location ti be in. Great hotel if you are not interested in something fancy and looking for more of the […] basics. I loved it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great if your on a budget"
Our hotel stay was very good. The beds were alittle hard and the pillows not fluffy but then again it's half the price of the Marriott next door. The hotel is a footstep away from the beach and right inline with the tourist stuff happening in PR. Overall I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
This hotel is an absolute steal. If you are expecting a luxury hotel look elsewhere. This is a great hotel for what we paid. It was a safe hotel in a good neighborhood and it was a stones throw from the beach. It was also surrounded by a lot of good restaurants and bars. It's also very easy to get around the city as there is a trolley stop less than […] 2 blocks away and a taxi line in front of the hotel. But like I said. It's not a 5 star resort. So if you go in knowing that you will enjoy it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient hotel close to beach"
Twice confirmed the cruise special of 2 single beds for us. Arrived to a queen but they easily switched. The hotel clerk suggested dining nearby which was wonderful. The breakfast was horrendous. They should eliminate it altogether or just have a coffee pot if its gonna be that bad. A great Latin place is a block away around the corner for breakfas […] t. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Clean, quaint, small room right on the ocean. This is authentic San Juan, nothing fancy. Good for a one night stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best bargain on the beach"
You will not find a better price in this area for a location right on the beach and in the Condado hotel district. The hotel is older and just provides the basics (bed, bath, and minimal breakfast), but the price cannot be beat. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was adequate, and the staff was always friendly and accommodating. […] As long as you realize that this is not an expensive luxury hotel, you will not be disappointed. I would be happy to return to Sandy Beach again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"what can't I said NOTHING!"
Very BAD, I wend fore a vacation whit my father in law, and it was the first time that my father in law in puerto rico I was happy because i belive that the hotel was clouse to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, Location, Location on the Beach."
The staff was friendly. The room was about the size of a small hotel room. Clean and mine was on the third floor. It has a balcony on the fourth level to sun and enjoy the breeze.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beach close but noisy..."
Overall not the worst place to stay but needs improvements. Water that smelled like sewage in front of the hotel. Shower had 3 streams of water going in 3 different directions. Room was clean but when the bar next door got hopping at 3am, there was no rest for the weary. Thankfully only had to stay for the night to hop on a cruise ship the next day. Close […] to a few restaurants though, so there was that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Booked a budget hotel and they delivered very well. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach"
We booked two rooms and was very disappointed at accommodations and the continental breakfast did not have a variety. I would not go back to hotel. I hope the other places you promote are better. You should do some more research and investigation before putting out to public. Not happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"10-second walk to a glorious beach"
Easy check-in/out, courteous bilingual staff, by the ocean--what's not to like? Yeah, it's not luxury, but it's fantastic for what it is.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and good price"
If you are expecting the Ritz then don't stay here. It is inexpensive when compared to all the other hotels in the area but you get what you pay for. You can't beat the location if you want to be on the beach in Condado.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for the San Juan beach experience!"
Safe. Family friendly. Wonderful staff. Perfect location. Close to stores and restaurants. Within walking distance of shops and Old San Juan.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect beach location close to San Juan sights"
The room was very simple, but it was clean. The hotel was just a few steps away from the beach. It was also a convenient location to walk to both downtown San Juan and to Old San Juan-if you are up to walking. We walked all the way to the opposite side of Old San Juan and got to see all the attractions on the way (1-2 hour walk). The staff was very […] nice and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much.

"Location. Location. Location."
If you are looking for a Hilton type hotel,or a resort with a pool, this is not the place for you. It was a bit run down, but extremely clean. Beds were super comfortable, and the A/C worked great! Best part of all - the proximity to the beach (literally one bldg away), and the super friendly, extremely accomodating staff. breakfast was weak (empty […] carbs and a few bananas), but there were so many local restaurants with superb food - it mattered not. Our only complaint was the lack of towels. Only two "bath" size - no hand towel and the washcloths were not existant. But for the price...the location, location, location cannot be beat.

"A Place To Stay"
The Hotel was clean and in a great location. there is a walgreens one block from the hotel. It is alright for a one night stay, would not stay for a whole week not fancy. Many restaurants within walking distance and safe to walk around and a casino within walking distance if you like to gambleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, Location, Location is what it's about"
Looked at Old San Juan hotels, expensive "name" hotels, but now that I've been, this hotel is the best for the buck. If you're used to fancy luxury, please don't bother. If you want a low priced chain style hotel, that garnished a great location, " you have it " in the Sandy Beach hotel. Spent all of Saturday in Old San Juan, but had the best part of […] the day back after I returned, at the hotel. Went and sat on the beach from 4:00 till dark, with the last of the Saturday crowd, enjoying a lite breeze and loving the ocean. This hotel sits on the "near" end of a street that stops where the sand begins. Public access means chair, umbrella, and boogie board rentals. Palm trees from the hotel opposite, means free shade from the street to half way across the sand. Breakfast is pastries and cereal, along with toast and juice or milk. If you want your Belgium waffles then you just go right ahead and rebook at the Marriott for twice the price, because breakfast is not why I came to town.

"Nice hotel close to beach."
Rooms were clean and pleasant. A little small, but who stays in their room with the beach close by and the shopping just around the corner.Genuine Expedia guest review
Checked in and our toilet still had toilet paper in it and was full too the top. Unable to use the bathroom due to clogged toilet and their reply was you can use the bathroom three floors down. It was Saturday and no one to fix it til Monday. Would not move us to another room and no compensation from the hotel. Never stay there again! Hotels.com did […] compensate us with a free nights stay elsewhere. I will use them again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach."
Sub par hotel. Dirty room. Mattress was horrible. The only thing this hotel has going for it was that it was close to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not the nicest hotel but on the beach."
Towels and wash cloths were not replaced when taken by housekeeping. Electricity went out twice during our stay. But it was right on the beach and the staff was somewhat helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel with small rooftop deck. Walk right out to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We have stayed there 4 times now"
My husband and I have stayed at Sandy Beach, previously known as El Canario by the Sea, 3 times now. We have also stayed at a few of more expensive well known hotels in Condado. This little hotel is across (a very small side road) from the Marriott. They share the same beach. The walk to Old San Juan is the same, the surrounding restaurants, and access […] to a casino. A walk out the front door and cabs are waiting. We have found it a safe place to stay and clean. The rates for a night very economical (continental breakfast of coffee and sweet rolls). We had never stayed on 2nd floor before, but there is an elevator (kinda creaky but worked). There is a bar next door that wasn't there previously, so I would recommend asking for a room on the beach side if you are there on a weekend night, the music was loud, but the wall air conditioner was humming so it didn't really bother us. The TV was nicer than the TV on the cruise ship and newer. It was tile floors so you didn't smell the musty smell you get in other Carribbean island 'fancier' hotels. There is no pool, but just out the front door to the left is the ocean. If you want to book tours you can go right next door to the Marriott and book it thru them. I like it, we will stay there again when we go back to San Juan. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great small hotel close to beach"
We enjoyed a week at this hotel and found the staff go out of their way to assist you any way they can. Everything is just steps away beach, shopping, restaurants and public transportation. The hotel decor is somewhat dated but its nice and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
You get what you pay for, paid under 100.00 a night and it delivered what was expected at that price point.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Staff was very friendly and helpful..."
For the price an excellent value in Condado Beach area ..... walk out the lobby and only steps from the ocean and right next door to the Marriot resort and casino...close to all kinds of bars and eating facilities.... staff was super friendly... Old hotel with aged furniture, etc but was clean and decent size....Genuine Expedia guest review
We have found our Puerto Rican home away from home! Don't expect frills and thrills at a 2 star hotel! Expect clean rooms, comfortable beds, excellent service! Pastries, juice and coffee wasn't expected but nice! If you need something better, go next door and spend 3 times more! We will definitely be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Frills Hotel. Very Friendly Staff."
The hotel had all the basic amenities we needed. The highlight was the location, two steps from a beautiful white sand beach. Lounge chairs were available for rental for $5 per day. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. There is no parking at the hotel but there are a few spots on the street. Alternatively, the Marriott charges $18 per night for […] indoor secured parking. Overall, this was exactly what we were looking for: a safe, clean place to crash after a full day of exploring the beautiful island. We definitely would recommend and are already planning our next trip back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best little hotel on the island"
The room was nice and clean, the location was unbeatable, you are literally on the beach and close to everything you might need. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I only have positive things to say about Sandy Beach Hotel. And yes I will return to Puerto Rico and stay at Sandy Beach Hotel. And anybody that has anything bad or negative to say […] about Sandy Beach Hotel, stay somewhere else and stop your complaining. Also the price was right. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Well, if you are looking for location and cheap this is it. Bed area clean but old old old. This place needs a makeover...... I would not take a shower here but toilet is clean to use.... Nice people....No amenities.. Phone in the room did not work and you needed to go to school to use the TV. We WOULD NOT reccomend this hotel and almost checked out […] as soon as we checked in. If we were staying more than just a short night we would have for sure ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's a very old building in front of the Beach"
It's small yet clean, good to crash for the night. It's not the Hamptons but I truly cannot complainGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very POOR choice for this area."
Very poorly trained and inattentive staff. They showed absolutely no interest in assisting with room preparation or cleanliness. Walls and bedding were stained with generally foul-smelling bath. Cockroaches were in the bathroom and under the beds. It was very difficult to open and shut the entrance door or to lock it adequately. No useful WiFi service […] despite trying several locations. It has a generally creepy feeling throughout. There are many other similarly priced lodgings in the vicinity. Most all have a basic and acceptable level of cleanliness and security. I would seriously check them out and never consider staying at Sandy Beach Hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
