Puerto Rico Hotels

We have an opportunity to visit Puerto Rico this spring. We are looking for a beautiful beach with restaurants, casino nearby. We love great friendly service when we travel. A friend recommended La Concha Resort? Has anyone been there? Any other recomendations?
Thanks!

We stayed there in November - weather was lousy but the hotel was nice. Beach was NOT nice - adjacent to public park and very noisy with all the public park activities.

Stayed there about a year and a half ago. It's a cool hotel, small casino, kind of a hip, Miami Beach feel. Restaurants close by and many more a short taxi ride to Old San Juan. The beach is okay. I guess you need to define what you consider a "beautiful beach." I wouldn't rate Condado Beach as beautiful but it has sand and warm pretty clear water. Regarding the public park referred to above - it actually is pretty nice but they do hold events there periodically that draw crowds.

The beach is better in the Isla Verde area of San Juan - and in that area, I recommend the Intercontinental, El San Juan Hotel, or the Ritz Carlton. However, again, I don't know how you define a beautiful beach. The San Juan area is very gbuilt up and metropolitan so you will not get serene, deserted beaches in that area, - there are hotels and condos lining the beaches and the beach gets fairly crowded on weekends with Puerto Rican families. However, the area does meet your other criteria - casinos, restaurants nearby.
