Hotel & beach suggestions please

I'm looking for a hotel on the beach with calm waters. Hard to tell from pictures but most look kind of rough surf. I am traveling w/kids who need the water to be pretty calm and also a good kid friendly hotel. Suggestions please.

Caribe Hilton's beach is off a lagoon, so it is calm. Also, Isla Verde beach is calmer than Condado.

Hello. I would go with the carb Hilton. It's a resort and there is a lagoon next to beach... The lagoon is to deep and the water is to rough. Right now in PR is the ocean can be a little "angry". LOL . The waves can be pretty rough. Also remember there are Nader currents that can be powerful..stick o knee high waters like the lagoon. Have fun and be safe. Oh yeah, I would definitely put my kids in some arm floats if ou do end up at the beaches in Condado or Isla verde area.

So you don't mention your kids ages so I will assume they are 3-8 yrs.

The Conrad hotel in Condado has a small venue water area for kids. Plus it is located right besides a beach area that has a man made wave breaker. Oh,and it has a Denny's right across the street :)

In Isla Verde I stayed with my nieces (4&6 then) at Intercontinental hotel. They loved the pool, so beach was not necessary at all.

In Fajardo there is El Conquistador hotel that caters to families, has a water park, couple of pools to enjoy, and a private island with a nice beach with calm waters (most of the time).
