Not only was it a nice hotel and a good price but the employees were so nice and welcoming, Just to name a few Ivan, Angel, Tino, Armando, All were so nice, Our rooms were clean the whole time, The hotel was right on the beach, its beyond gay friendly, There were nice places to eat as well but we found one right across the street from the gym next to the hotel called Orosco's so we eat there everyday, The clubs are like a 5 min cab ride away, The weather was so nice the whole time, and yes there were some men that stand around waiting for someone to pay them to "hang out" but that's just how it is there we assumed... : ) But but yes if you want to stay at a nice hotel that is right on the beach Atlantic Beach Hotel is it!

This hotel is HORRIBLE. We spent the day at the beach in front of the hotel.We got there early. It was dirty. Trash everywhere cigarette butts covered the beautiful sand. We went to the hotel bar and bought drinks. They were not much bigger than a dentist office spit cup and were expensive. As we were leaving the old toothless guy who worked the front desk yelled something at us and called us FAGS!

Do not waste a penny here!

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Atlantic Beach Hotel -- it was clean and comfortable, and it's a shame that it gets so many negative reviews. Perhaps I can clear a few things up.

This IS a gay-friendly hotel. The crowd is a comfortable mix of gay and straight people, and the service is fine regardless of sex and gender. Homophobes, stay away, please. As for the comments accusing the staff of bias, I can only assume it has something to do with the fact that there are a lot of gay prostitutes who hang around the hotel, trying to get invited in, and frankly, I wouldn't want to let them in, either.

This IS a no frills, budget hotel, and it's a good deal. At this price, if you expect luxury you're setting yourself up for disappointment. I was happy with my room, though the shower dripped and the A/C was a bit too cold (I just opened the window to let some warm air in). The view from my window was worth way more than I paid. In the future, if I go for a romantic vacation, I'll probably stay somewhere nicer and more expensive, but for a quick, cheap weekend on the beach, this is the perfect hotel.

The location, on Condado beach, is within a popular tourist area with lots of hotels and restaurants. Oh, and it's ON THE BEACH. Sure, it's on a side street rather than the main road, but it's not exactly off the beaten path and it's not a particularly dangerous area. As I mentioned above, there are some shady characters who hang out outside the hotel, but if you don't mess with them, they don't mess with you.

One thing I really loved about this hotel is the bar. The bartenders are super friendly and the beach view is outstanding. It's a really great place to just sit and chat and have a drink without having to get all dressed up and pay a cover. Also, the hotel provides beach chairs and umbrellas to guests, which makes a perfect spot for drinking pina coladas and enjoying the eye candy.

I recommend this hotel to anyone with an open mind who wants to visit San Juan on a budget. It's a great deal, and I had a great stay.

I just finished a week's stay at the Atlantic Beach Hotel with a friend and by the last day we couldn't wait to get out of there!! We had booked this place for the following reasons: #1: it's advertised as a "gay-friendly" hotel in many sites and gay travel publications, #2: the llocation, right in the center of Condado, #3: the price. To be as objective and real as I can be, I will list the good first: 1. Location: its true, it is righ in fron of what's considered the "gay beach" and at the center of all restaurants and shops, but then again, so are the other hotels AND you can still come to the gay beach for free because beaches are all public here. 2. Price: when you are on a budget and not a "picky" traveler, all you want is a clean place to sleep and bathe. By the look of the tiles in the bathroom and the furniture in the room you can tell they have done some remodeling. The BAD: where do I even begin?? 1. The staff: when we checked in, no explanation was given to us of what was around or nearby. Also there is one guy we named the "hotel nazi" because he keeps an eye on your every move; VERY uncomfortable. Yes, I know I'm gay, I don't need you to keep staring at me like I'm going to start an orgy or something. 2. The rest of the hotel is in serious need of a remodel: the bar is rund down, the elevator seems like it's about to give any minute (very scary!), and the front deskreminds me of a disorganized private investigator's desk from a bad 80's police show: paperwork pinned on boards and stacked all over. There's also a lingering smell of damp rags in that area. I know we are near the beach and all, but really? This is my first impression? 3. BED BUGS!! Every morning i'd wake up with itchy tiny rashes which I thought were due to mosquitoes. Then it ocurred to me to look at my sheets one day, and sure enough, there they were!! Yuck!! Do I needto go on?? 4. Heavy Atmosphere. I've stayed at plenty budget hotels before where I have felt like I've stayed at a 5 star resort because of the friendliness of the staff. Here I felt like I was in a dorm where my every move had to be analyzed in case I became a sex-crazed, out-of-control gay man! Seriously?? Even the locals would agree this is NOT the place to stay if you are a gay client simply because its in front of the gay beach or it has a "gay-friendly" bar. I learned my lesson. Next time I will spend a few more dollars and stay somewhere else!! In the mean time, I'm putting the word out there. If you are gay, STAY AWAY!! Use the gay beach during the day if you'd like, but then go to a nicer place to sleep at night where you are not treated like a prisoner!!

So really, what did you all expect for a hotel located directly on the ocean for $89.00? Nope, not the Ritz, but a really pleasant little hotel. For that price I received a clean comfortable room with an ocean view, and a very accommodating staff. I am really puzzled by all of the negative reviews here. The location couldn't be any better and there was never a time that I felt "unsafe".
I own a small hotel in PR and I can confidently reccommend The Atlantic Beach Hotel for my guests traveling to Condado. We'll be back soon!
