Nestled in Condado, a sun-splashed corner of prime Caribbean beachfront in San Juan’s most elegant district, La Concha Beach Resort offers a luxurious beachside retreat with magnificent views, fine dining and award-winning service. La Concha is not only conveniently located within walking distance of San Juan’s top attractions and beautiful beaches, it also boasts all the luxury facilities and amenities the discerning business and leisure traveler could desire.
Designed by Osvaldo Toro and Miguel Ferrer and built in 1958, the retro-style La Concha epitomizes the Tropical Modernism Movement, the architectural style of the time. This beautiful building incorporates tropical climate features such as open lobbies, natural lighting, seamless connections between interior and exterior spaces and brise-soleil, the concrete protective element in the façade that filters the rays of the sun.
The hotel is filled with details relevant to ancient island traditions, including a mirador encompassing both the sea and the city, visual allusions to traditional galleries with blinds and the use of water throughout as a leitmotif. The famous sea-shell shaped restaurant Perla (meaning pearl) was designed by Mario Salvador and stands as an architectural landmark of that time today. The hotel underwent a massive renovation in 2010 during which the atrium-style Suites Tower was added complete with ocean-facing suites, the Ocean Lounge with adults-only swimming pool and the Casino del Mar.
The resort features no less than seven excellent restaurants, bars and lounges, a state-of-the-art casino and more than 480 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites.
