Which resort

I can't decide between Intercontinental San Juan Resort &Casino and San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino for a vacation in March with my mom and grown daughter. Looking for opinions from those that have seen them both.

How important is the beach to you. The beach is better in Isle Verde than Condado.

Both resorts are very nice. It comes down to what's more important to you: beach or access to restaurants and shops by foot.

Here are the differences between the 2:

Intercontinental: very nice beach, not many restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Marriott Stellaris: many restaurants and shops within walking distance, not so nice beach.

Thanks! That confirms what my research found. I just did not want to give up the nicer hotel for the nicer beach. If they are both good choices, I think I will go with the nicer beach. It appears that there are enough restaurants and we plan to travel away from the resort one or two of the days. We are looking forward to our trip!

I think you will be happy with your choice. For me in overall Isla Verde is a better choice than Condado for a vacation. Plus, Isla Verde has plenty of restuarants within walking distance to the Intercontinental. The restaurant selection in Condado is more, but at least you will find 30 different restaurants within walking distance of the Intercontinental Hotel.
