What We Love
- The skyline beds on the rooftop are wonderful. These nifty lounges are great, whether you're sunbathing during the day, or stargazing at night.
Things to Know
- The hotel is the place to be for elegant simplicity, but also offers trendy surroundings, chic style and a one-of-a-kind experience.
As soon as you enter the lobby, you'll be welcomed with distinctive style. A waterfall wall, violet ceiling lighting, limestone floors and frosted glass create a stylish ambiance. Check-in is accompanied by the sounds of gentle surf from corridor speakers to set the mood. The hall itself is a satisfying illusion: you seem to be walking on pebbles, which are actually clever floor tiles. When you enter the elevator, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the sight of another waterfall behind glass.
Ready to catch some rays, or take a dip in the hotel pool? You'll find the pool and sundeck on the rooftop. But first, grab a playa colada cocktail at Mist, the bar on one side of the roof, before scoping out the sundeck. The Beds in Heaven, over-sized lounging beds, catch your eye. Or if you prefer a perfect beach, just across the quiet street, the two-mile stretch of Isla Verde Beach with its golden sands are waiting for you.
When you're craving a little lunch to remember, try Mist, which transforms into a bar from noon-10pm. Mist is widely recognized as one of the hottest spots in San Juan. Maybe you'll catch sight of a celeb or two while you're unwinding with a nightcap.
With only 81 rooms and suites, the San Juan Water and Beach Club Hotel offers a cozy getaway for travelers tired of wearing wristbands at giant, crowded resorts. You'll have floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the Atlantic. Soft lighting playing off neutral colors calms you in your little haven. Upscale luxury, boutique service, this is the spot for you!

Customer Ratings & Reviews

We stayed for two nights in February. Very close to airport, so we arrived on a later flight and i was glad to take a short cab ride to our accommodations. The property is definitely older but very well maintained. We had a wall of windows that opened to a partial ocean view. Some guest we overheard complained about the lack of lighting in halls and rooms but we weren't bothered by that. Seems to be for effect mainly and the property felt completely safe.The rooms were clean and the staff was super accommodating. A really nice quiet sleep both nights. We loved the rooftop pool and restaurant area but the breakfast was just okay and not a great value. Plenty of other options nearby. The beach area was really nice and they had chair/umbrella service, towels and waitstaff on the beach for drinks and food. Truly very solicitous staff, couldn't want for anything and very gracious even when folks didn't tip them. Ilsa Verde isn't the most beautiful beach we saw on our trip but it was so relaxing to be waited on and just lounge in the sun. Small tip, there are two car rental agencies in walking distance here that are reasonably priced. We rented our car here, returned and spent the morning at the beach and then took the shuttle to the airport for our flight. Would definitely recommend this property.
Good hotel option for the area if you want to be right on the beach
The best things about this hotel is its location and rooftop views! It's right on the beach, and staff set out chairs/umbrellas for you. The rooftop provides amazing panoramic views, and the rooftop restaurant (Mist) has delicious food. I, however, was not a fan of the main hotel restaurant (Sabores) -- the food for dinner was just okay, the breakfast left a lot to be desired, and service was very slow. The hotel was clean and the rooms were comfortable, but I was expecting more for the price. It is also concerning that some 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor are specifically about the spa and not the hotel itself (possibly inflating its rating).
We had an ocean front room, the room was a little odd...however it was a more authentic experience of Puerto Rico. The food and the drinks were amazing, the service was a little slow, the views were spectacular! And the beach was awesome!
San Juan Water Beach Club: Zen Day Massage
I had the 1-hr massage with Claudia and she was amazing! She is very friendly and really went out the way to make sure I was comfortable and my needs were met. She offered me a beverage, which I forgot to take, and she hand delivered it to my room. Excellent customer service! Please book this hotel and Claudia for your massage !
Another great stay at WBC
This is my second time at this hotel and I love it. The rooms, staff, atmosphere, restaurant, rooftop bar & massage services are all excellent. I had an ocean view balcony room this time & it was awesome. Being able to see the beautiful view of the ocean & palm trees right from my bed was heaven. The food at the rooftop bar, Mist & the restaurant, Sabores by Juana was very good. I enjoyed every meal. While I was there, I had a great massage by Claudia. The massage room was beautifully set up with a view of the ocean. Can't get more relaxing than that. Claudia helped with my back pain so I could enjoy the rest of my trip. I just got home yesterday and I'm already dreaming of my next visit!
