Review Summary

Photos and Review by


  • Fun, casual-yet-hip atmosphere
  • Small sandy beach
  • Bright, spacious, well-designed rooms with a modern vibe
  • Trippy, funky lobby decor
  • Renowned fine dining at Pikayo
  • Numerous restaurants, including a casual bar and grill and an Asian noodle bar
  • 24-hour, 12,000s-square-foot casino
  • Free Wi-Fi


  • Remote peninsula location; almost nothing within walking distance
  • Not on the open ocean
  • Cramped bathrooms
  • Cabs required to reach other parts of town
  • Surrounded by rundown and abandoned buildings (bad for city view rooms)
  • No room service

Bottom Line

The 589 rooms at the Condado Plaza Hilton are inviting and bright, decorated in blues and greens or brilliant reds, and featuring plenty of space. The drawbacks are that the bathrooms are tight and views fluctuate drastically: Some are breathtaking vistas of pristine ocean, others are of nothing more than abandoned hotels and decrepit buildings. There are two decent pools, but the property's small beach fronts a lagoon-like inlet rather than the open ocean. If you're looking for waves, head to Isla Verde (or the hip pool scene at the nearby La Concha) instead.

Remote location on a peninsula in Condado, on the water but not within walking distance to much else

Map of The Condado Plaza Hilton

The hotel is located on the tip of a peninsula in Condado, surrounded by very little besides abandoned hotels: be prepared to cab if you are heading out to dinner. You will have to take the bus to the main tourist attractions in Old San Juan, but it offers easy access to the airport.

Once a booming area catering to foreign tourism, and then forgotten and somewhat sketchy, Condado became an affluent beachfront neighborhood after the remarkable rehabilitation carried out in the late 90s and early 2000s. Avenida Ashford is the main strip, where restaurants, upscale boutiques and casinos line the sidewalks.
