San Juan Water and Beach Club
Why We Love This Hotel
- Swanky hotel with rooftop pool and bar overlooking Isla Verde beach
- Watch the aqua Caribbean waves from your bed -- each is positioned to face the windows
- Sip cocktails on the roof, and watch the waves roll in as the DJ spins the latest tunes
- Listen to the flames crackle in front of the Caribbean’s only rooftop fireplace
The San Juan Water and Beach Club is a perfect paradise for travelers who love a trendy club, and the décor that goes with it. Located in the swanky Isla Verde beach area, the hotel is known for its nighttime pool parties complete with tune-spinning DJs and blue back-lit rooftop.
The 10-story boutique hotel carries the white sands and aqua waters of the beach theme throughout the property, almost relentlessly. A whitewashed exterior paired with aqua exterior glass is just the start of the hotel’s love affair with this color pairing.
Stark white walls, wavy benches, lowing curtains spot lit from below and watery projections on the lobby walls would make a mermaid feel right at home. The lobby and rooms have stone flooring with river stones superimposed on tile creating a pathway though the hallway.
Rooms are all white with one bright aqua wall and some additional aqua accents in the bedding. Minimalist furnishings and lack of artwork on the walls might feel a bit unfinished to some, but the views may make up for it. Nearly all rooms have full or partial ocean views with the bed facing the window, so you can fall asleep, and wake up to the sight of the Caribbean.
Guests here are more likely to spend the bulk of their time at the chic rooftop pool bar and lounge area. During the day guests can sunbathe here, or walk across the street to the beach. At night, the hotel transforms into a disco-like club entirely backlit in blue both on the roof and in the hotel’s common areas.
