InterContinental San Juan Questions & Answers

merrick, ny

I am traveling in February 2018 with a 6 and 2 year old. Is the ocean calm in this area? Can the children play in the water safely or is the tide rough?

Yes, the water at the beaches in Isla Verde in front of the resorts, Marriott Courtyard, Ritz, El San Juan, and the Intercontinental, is always beautiful with slightly rolling mini waves or totally calm; it's wonderful for children and adults alike. You will LOVE this whole area! If you don't have a car, do take the local bus that runs right in front of the Intercontinental to Old San Juan....maybe a little too much walking once you get there for little children, but it's convenient and very inexpensive! Have a great time!!

The water was very calm in May. Our 3, 6, & 8 year olds enjoyed playing on the beach in the day & swimming in the pool at night. No slides,but there is a small kids playground.

Hello,

You can go confidently. No issues. I was born and raised by this beach in a condominium not even 34 blocks. The beach is always peaceful.

The ocean was beautiful and calm when I was there in May. I would suggest another hotel though. We had a terrible experience at this hotel.

The surf was calm when we visited and we were told this was typical.

I would always be concerned, however with young children, especially a 2 year old. I'm from NJ and have experienced rough surf so in comparison, I found this extremely mild.

I went in July the water was Definitely calm and very clean and safe. When you go to the beach you can take your pool towel from the hotel and rent a umbrella on the beach.
