Expert Review

For travelers seeking the best of both worlds in San Juan – its sprawling beaches and its tangling, pastel-colored old city – the Condado Plaza Hilton hits the spot. Located smack dab between both, guests can easily laze on the sand at skyscraper-fringed Ocean Park – or the property’s own patch of sand – by day, and hit the cobblestone streets by night. Each is just a 10-minute drive away.

Plus, as one of the only properties in town with both ocean and lagoon views, guests have a choice of either blazing sunsets or crashing waves just outside their balconies. The lagoon side affords some unique perks, too – paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkeling are included in the hotel’s resort fee.

Families and younger singles intermingle on the property’s lively pool deck, where food and salsa music is served all day long. Kids – and a few intrepid adults – hit the water slide while the grownups order pina coladas and daiquiris at the swim-up bar. Rooms are sleekly modern – think platform beds, crisp white sheets, and splashy black-and-white photos on the walls – without the intimidation factor.
