Flying IAD-SJU; Cruise Day #1

I had a fabulous 34th birthday, leaving behind a gray, wet, and cold Washington for the warm sunshine of the Caribbean.

My birthday began well before dawn as I got up at 5:40 a.m. and finished packing. The Washington Flyer taxi I had ordered for 6:15 arrived several minutes early, so it was outside waiting when I came downstairs a couple minutes after the scheduled time. This was the first time in two years that I've taken a taxi to or from IAD, but I splurged today ...

It's always raining in Puerto Rico

... Shopping? Okay, fine. Go back to the same stores we been in already. Now what? Dinner. Fine. What next? Bar. Good idea, we should have been drinking all day instead of walking around in the rain.
Day 6, still raining, hung over and no sleep I was deleriously on a mission. To KILL the ******* coqui frog if it meant getting arrested in Puerto Rico. My eyes bulging out of my head, steam bursting from my ears ...

    Way Overpriced

    from

    This hotel is definitely not worth the price right now, maybe when it is all done and the area around it improves it will be nice.

    Will be a great hotel when it grows up

    from

    Stayed here in January 2008. Stumbled onto the hotel when everything else around was booked (it was the weekend of the fiesta). What a pleasant surprise! A large room with an ocean view. (looking at the hotel plan, it seems like all rooms are ocean view rooms). Condado is a great neighborhood with lots of shopping and eating within walking distance. The hotel has a "private" beach and two swimming pools making for a lot of fun for youngsters,

    Nicest Resort on Condado Beach

    from

    If you like art deco boutique hotels than this is the place for you. The staff is wonderful and the lobby is modern contemporary.

    Promising but much room to improve

    from

    Just got back from 4 nights at La Concha. Basically I think this WILL be a great hotel, but it is far from great now. Here are some pro's and con's:

    Beautiful!!

    from

    I would agree with the other two reviews before me.

    The hotel is absolutely stunning, but still lot of construction going on on the side. It doesn't really affect your stay at all. Lobby area and bar are very contemporary. Entire area has a very south beach feel to it. Beach is rough. High waves. You see a lot of surfers there in the weekends. Rooms are nice size. Very modern furnishings. Entire back wall is windows. EVery room has an ocean view!

    Staff is very helpful. Concierge gave us tips on our trip to El Yunque.

    Do not eat at Ikakos - restaurant across the street. WAy too overpriced. Try Yerba Buena on Ashford or Barrachina in Old San Juan for authentic food.

    Best regards,

    The beautifully designed La Concha Hotel in San Juan

    from

    The La Concha Renaissance hotel in San Juan is a top notch hotel, that once finished will be a spectacular 5 star hotel. Having said that I wouldn't hesitate staying there even though they still need to complete the tower building next door as well as the casino, spa and larger restaurant. I was told they expect to have everything in the main hotel competed over the next 3 months, but in the meantime the hotel is operating at 60% capacity. (the top floors from 7-12 are all complete and lovely). The casino, tower building next door and spa won't be finished for quite sometime. There were some minor bugs they have to work out but it's just growing pains and it seems the management is there to make sure all of the little things get worked out.

    Growing Pains at La Concha

    from

    Stayed there over the Xmas week. Hotel had just opened two weeks earlier. It is part remodel of an old hotel part new construction (still in the early stages).
