Gorgeous area of San Juan with a fantastic beach and many restaurants, hotels and expensive homes. Gated and secure with security patrols. Great place to stay and many rental apartments/homes available.

I was really desappointed with this place, at 4pm there's no sun in the beach due to the tall buildings. I was running from place to place to catch the sun and the beach is really crowded compared to other beaches in San Juan

Great beach day if you go early. The wind picks up in the afternoon. Get behind a dune or stay up near the trees to protect from afternoon winds. Very nice beach.
