I am planning a trip to San Juan for my birthday in December and want to make the most of the 3 nights I will be there. I've been doing research but still can't seem to choose the best hotel with the best beach near the best night life. The most important thing on this trip would have to be beach bc I've never been to an island. I'd like to experience white sand with calm blue waters.
Old San Juan is amazing and Istayed there, but there is no real beach for the most part.
Ocean Park Beach is rated very highly, but is 5 miles away. You could always stay one night in Old San Juan then move here:
Have a great time!
We stayed in the Sheraton Old San Juan on our honeymoon this summer and loved it! The beach isn't super close, but you do have great views of the bay from the hotel (we even had a balcony) and there are awesome views of the ocean--and fun things to do, nightlife and other attractions--all around Old San Juan.
