Cons

Not for traditional types, the shining (hotel) star of Condado Beach — and, arguably, San Juan — is this buzzy resort from Marriott’s Renaissance series. La Concha attracts a constant crowd of young patrons — both guests and locals, who come here often, dressed to the nines. The airy lobby is a chic meeting space by day, and is transformed at night with low lighting and hip music. Trendy restaurants have options like sushi and sake or tapas and sangria; the seashell-shaped Perla has a 4,000-bottle wine cellar. The 232 rooms and suites have bright, sleek decor, and many come with floor-to-ceiling views of the ocean (it’s definitely worth the price to upgrade). Food and drink service is provided at the beach and at the three outdoor pools. With long lines for the front desk and slow drink service, the resort can feel short-staffed.

Scene

With a sexy resort vibe, this property is best-suited for groups and couples.

This beachside hotel might make guests think they’ve mistakenly arrived in South Beach. Between the slow-moving cars rolling down the avenue and groups of pedestrians walking past this popular stretch of Condado, the white retro entryway is a constant hub of activity. Cars might be pulling around to drop luggage before continuing to the attached garage, or waiting for their turn at valet service. Guests are greeted by friendly staff members, upbeat music, and a soothing fountain before heading through the sliding glass doors into the modern lobby, accented by neon lights and a red abstract ceiling.

To the right is the front desk (expect lines), as well as the 24-hour casino, and a set of elevators to the parking garage. In the center of the first floor is the impossible-to-miss lobby bar. This is the center of action throughout the day, starting with self-serve coffee and pastries in the morning, followed by salads and espresso mid-day, cocktails in the afternoon, and a full-on party scene at night when lights are dimmed and music is cranked up. Dressed-up honeymooners, destination wedding groups, bachelor parties, and girls in stilettos all intermingle while sipping colorful drinks on white leather bar stools, communal tables, and low lounge seating areas. Above the lobby and far from the noise are two sit-down dining restaurants, while to right of the lobby is the outdoor multi-level terrace for tapas and sangria on tables, daybeds, or sofas.

Paths lead to the pools, fitness center and beach and security is present in these areas to keep non-guests from going where they aren’t permitted (they are permitted in, and regularly frequent, the trendy restaurants and bars). Though the nightly lobby party rarely rests, romantics can relax while listening to the sound of coqui frogs and waves. Kids, however, unless content to splash around the main pool all night amongst mostly adults, might become bored.

Location

A landmark hotel in the center of thriving Condado

San Juan is Puerto Rico’s capital and largest city, and the district of Condado lies directly east of Old San Juan. Guests can reach historic sights within a 10-minute taxi ride,  and the airport within 20 minutes (rental cars aren’t necessary for visitors staying in Condado). Those planning to explore Puerto Rico can park in the attached garage for a reasonable daily fee.

La Concha is the first hotel in the row on Condado Beach (on its westernmost side) and the wide stretch of sand is cleaned daily by the hotel staff. The resort is well-known amongst tourists and locals as a hot spot in San Juan, and the bar and dining options are popular. Guests will be tempted to dine on-site often, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the neighborhood as well. Yes, there are some touristy options, but Condado is also a residential neighborhood for young urban professionals, so there are plenty of spots off the beaten track.

Next to the property is a public plaza and fountain with exercise classes and farmers markets. At night, this is popular place to watch the sunset and there are occasional jazz concerts. American names like Starbucks, Walgreens, and CVS, as well as luxury brands like Cartier and Kiehl’s, are also within a few blocks of the hotel.

Rooms

Chic and airy rooms — many of which have floor-to-ceiling ocean views

La Concha’s 232 rooms are mostly situated in two towers, the Ocean Tower and the Suite Tower. Decor throughout is bright and contemporary, if a bit chain-like: Picture blue and green bed runners over plush, white duvets, wall-to-wall gray carpeting, streamlined furniture, and light woods. The Ocean Tower offers short-term accommodations with plush king beds, living areas with sofa beds, work desks, flat-screen TVs, and iPod/iPad docking stations, coffeemakers, empty mini-fridges, and two free bottles of water per day. Bathrooms have blue-lit showers with rain showerheads, Aveda products, and great hairdryers. Many rooms in the Ocean Tower have partial or full ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows with sliding doors that lead out to standing balconies. Cribs are available upon request (babies and toddlers stay for free) but extra rollaway beds are not available for children.

Deluxe Pool Cabanas are in a low-rise building next to the pool, with king beds and balconies. These are closer to the nightlife in the lobby but soundproof doors help alleviate noise.

The Suite Tower offers short or long-term stays, and rooms have kitchenettes (that include full refrigerators, small ovens, and tableware), dining areas, and living areas with sofa beds. Large bathrooms come with showers; some have an additional whirlpool baths designed for two people.

Features

Daily beach cleanings, three outdoor pools, and cool dining options

Many at La Concha, whether guests are not, come for the impressive food and beverage program. The lobby turns into Aroma Café in the morning with breakfast pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, and self-serve coffee that can be charged to the rooms. There are free refills on coffee before 11 a.m. with the receipt. A full breakfast buffet is served every morning on the mezzanine level with views of the ocean, or guests can head to Pinky’s across the street — which offers a great breakfast spread at a low price.

After 11 a.m., servers start making their way around the lounge to take espresso, cocktail, and food orders through the afternoon and well into the evening. Other restaurants on-site include the 13-seat sushi bar called Komokai, and Solera, the outside tapas restaurant where food is served at both dining tables and lounge areas. Sushi can be ordered both here and in the lobby, as well.

Upstairs on the second level are the more upscale dining options: Voga, an Italian Grill for dinner only, and high-end seafood restaurant Perla, the iconic shell-shaped structure with hand-blown glass lamps facing the ocean. Perla has an extensive wine by the glass menu, and a cellar with over 1,000 labels. After dinner, guests can head back down to the lobby bar, which plays music until late, or hit the casino –- a 15,000-square-foot space open to the public. There are servers offering free drinks for those taking part in games; there are also slot machines here and sporting events playing on one of the large flat-screen TVs.

The adults-only infinity Suite Pool located near La Perla is manned by security in order to keep out non-guests. Two other pool areas are family-friendly, a small infinity pool on the other side of Perla, and a larger multi-tiered outdoor pool that is lit neon colors at night, located next to Solera. Though poolside service is available, it’s slow,and guests may have better luck going to the bar themselves for drinks. Rooms are not equipped with pool towels but there is a hut near the fitness center that has towels. The fitness center has a range of cardio and weight equipment as well as views of the ocean. Beach staff members will help guests get set up on white lounge chairs and umbrellas on the wide beach.

Destination weddings are common on the sand during sunset, and event space is available on the first floor and in areas of the restaurants.

Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel, and the common areas have plenty of tables, though not many outlets.

A parking garage next to the hotel is accessed by an elevator from the lobby, and costs a reasonable daily fee.

Everything was great. Due to a hurricane there was no electricity and the hotel ran as if there normal conditions. The generator operated all the time and A/C and WiFi were working perfectly.

The front desk staff was not welcoming which is surprising for a place like this because this is the first contact with the hotel.

Pros:The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! The breakfast buffet is super yummy and the drinks at the bar with Juan are so good! He genuinely cares about people and making quality drinks! Pool & beach access is amazing.

Cons:The only thing that could’ve been better was perhaps the ac in the room. We had a suite so at times it felt a little warm.

Pros:Modern look that is on the beach with pools and in a nice area. Every part of the hotel was clean including the gym and toilets. The restaurants were also excellent with good choices and healthy options available. Overall awesome and would definitely recommend this luxurious hotel.

Cons:Resort fees. I feel that the hotel is priced right and that there is no reason to tack on resort fees. Drinks a little pricey

Pros:hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. hotel was right on the water, great drinks and food. Located in a nice area to walk around at any time of the day. Close to shopping, and local restaurants. Hotel guests were a mix of families, couples, business, and groups of friends. There was an adult only pool as well as 3 others. Will definitely be going back and staying here!

Pros:Well maintained despite not being a new resort; Modern, comfortable and clean rooms; Large staff and very friendly and accommodating; Adult pool! It was the most quiet and least congested area. Not sure some people knew it was there. If you like resorts and don’t mind the crowds you will enjoy this hotel.

Cons:Party-like atmosphere on the weekend- if that’s what you want you will have a great time. Personally, I didn’t like the music on the beach. Also, the beach is fairly narrow and the main beach area and pool area are both crowded with chairs very close to one another. I prefer more space and don’t want to be sitting an inch away from a total stranger. It can be tough to find the sun in the afternoon when the hotel casts a shadow on the beach. Scope out a good spot early.

Pros:Loved the suite with full kitchen. Would do this again!

Cons:HOusekeeping was not cleaning room if I did not ask or let them know I was out. Room did not get made up last day at all, and I was out all day.

Pros:The beach and pool facilities are great

Cons:My room did not electricity for 48 hours, the hotel would not offer much more than a complimentary buffet breakfast.

Pros:Vibrant, entertaining but also relaxing and luxurious. Staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The facility was clean, never noticed bathroom soap, towels, tissue empty or a mess. Room was a suite with ample space, balcony and kitchenette. It seemed much more suited to adults only but there were families. Location was great, right on the beach. Bikes were available which we took into Old San Juan. I would stay here again and again with adults.

Cons:On occasion, I felt that the music was too loud (ack! I’m getting old!) But that was really it.

Pros:I loved the 3 different pool options. We used the adult pool the entire time, which is much quieter and has a beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Most staff were so friendly and helpful. Menu is pretty reasonable and prices are comparable to surrounding area, except quality is much much better. Tuna salad was my favorite thing by far.

Cons:Mixed drinks were weak and pricey. Rules weren’t always enforced. Example, there was a 5 year old at the adult pool for about 2 hours until someone finally noticed. We were also told we couldn’t bring our own mixed drinks to the pool, yet others would blatantly have a 6 pack from cvs out in the open. Hallways were a little dingy.

San Sebastia, Basque Country, Spain: History, Modernity, Modernness, To see

every year, 200120, , on Saint Sebastian’s Day, the city’s residents participate in a special celebration known as the «Tamborrada» (Tamborrada) — a parade of drums. Events begin at 12 am on January 19 at Constitution Square, when the mayor raises the city flag. The drumming begins with «Sociedad Gaztelubide» and the melodies of Raimundo Sarriega are also played and the drumming continues for the next 24 hours. Adults dressed as cooks and soldiers march through the city with drums all night long.

The holiday originated in 1836 as part of the local carnival. Over time, the participants of the festival began to put on Tamborrada the same uniform that the city soldiers wear. As the number of festival participants increased, other groups of participants with different uniforms began to appear.

On January 20, it’s almost impossible not to meet at least one Tamborrada drummer on the streets of San Sebastian. More than 125 groups (each with 20-50 drums and 50-100 barrels, accompanied by a brass band, flag bearers and water carriers) enliven the streets of the city with their invigorating melodies and dances.

During the holiday, the townspeople usually dine in the chokos, traditionally only for men, but in recent years even the most conservative of them allow women on the night of Tamborrada. They eat gourmet dishes prepared by themselves, mainly from seafood, and taste the best wines.

For the people of Donostia, Tamborrada is the most significant holiday of the year.

At 12 midnight on January 20, this merry holiday ends on the same Constitution Square, the flag is lowered, and the celebration stops until next year, which often causes sincere tears among local residents.

Great Week ( Semana Grande , or in Basque Aste Nagusia ) is held in San Sebastian during a week in mid-August, on Our Lady’s Day. About the beginning of the holiday, starting at 1900:00 in the gardens of Alderdi Eder, heralds the traditional cannon shot.

One of the most important components of Semana Grande is the International Fireworks Competition, held right in the middle of La Concha Bay, in which companies from all over the world take part. In addition, during the Great Week there are concerts with the participation of world music stars.

Since 1884, every the first Saturday of February in Donostia, the festival is held Caldereros , during which the townspeople, dressed in gypsy clothes, take to the streets and, banging hammers or spoons on pots and pans, move from bar to bar, singing traditional songs. Previously, only men participated in this action, but now women have also joined them.

Another significant holiday for the city is celebrated annually December 21 is Saint Thomas Day ( Santo Tomas) . On this day, San Sebastian turns into a huge farmers’ market, and the main highlight of the program is txistorra — a fresh sausage similar to chorizo. Kiosks are set up throughout the city offering all kinds of food and handicrafts, mostly from local farms. The most popular of them are cheeses, honey, chistorra, cider and cakes.

Saint Thomas’ Day dates back to the middle of the 19th century, when the inhabitants of the villages (baserritarras) of the province moved to the city to pay the annual rent to the owners of the land they worked on. To get the maximum benefit from their visit to the city, the peasants sold their own products and purchased the things they needed in return. And over time, an annual fair was formed on the Constitution Square.

On Christmas Eve, the local Basque Santa Claus, Olenzero, and his accompanying carol singers, dressed as Basque farmers, take to the streets of the city, sing and collect donations in bars, shops and banks. Sometimes Olenzero and his singers walk the streets after Christmas, even on December 31st, and show active citizenship, voicing certain opinions and demands of a social, cultural and political nature.

Annually, at the end of September the International Film Festival ( Festival de San Sebastián, or Donostia Zinemaldia in Basque) is held in Donostia. Since its inception in 1953, it has established itself as one of the 14 most important «A» film festivals in the world, accredited by the FIAPF (International Federation of Film Producers’ Associations).

Donostia also hosts the international audiovisual festival «Street Zinema», dedicated to contemporary art and urban culture, and the festival of short films on the theme of surfing «Surfilm Festibal».

The most important event in the musical life of San Sebastian is Heineken Jazzaldia Jazz Festival, held annually on the third week of July and lasting five days.

The festival was first held in 1966 and at that time was the first jazz festival in Spain. Now it is one of the oldest jazz festivals in Europe.
