Simply being in Puerto Rico is a good start, but waking up to ocean views while you’re there? That’s what you really want. With over 300 miles of tropical coastline, there are dozens of beachfront hotels in Puerto Rico ranging from luxury to laid back.

Some come with pool bars and on-site restaurants, others just a hammock under the palms. But all of these island hotels offer our very favorite amenity—oceanfront living.

Casual Beachfront Hotels

When we say beachfront hotel in Puerto Rico, you say expensive? Not always! There are plenty of over-the-top, oceanfront hotels (and we’ll get to those!) but there’s some comfortable, casual options that deserve your attention too.

Coconut Palms Inn Oceanfront — Rincon, $

The kind of place you go when you want to slow things down, the Coconut Palms Inn Oceanfront is a no-frills, beachfront paradise. Dubbed a “couples only” hotel, this mellow spot features a blend of apartments with fully equipped kitchens and guest rooms outfitted with mini fridges and microwaves.

You’ll love the complimentary access to beach toys, towels, coolers and hammocks. But here, nothing beats the view. Situated just steps from the sand, you can watch the sunset over the ocean from the shared deck or take a midday dip in the sea with ease.

Even better? It’s one of the most affordable of all of Puerto Rico’s hotels on the beach.

Villa Cofresi — Rincon, $$

Half a mile down the beach from the last spot, you’ll find Villa Cofresi, a simple but comfortable resort with a long list of amenities and a perfect ocean view.

Guests here love to hang at the pool, where you have easy access to both the hotel bar and the beach. A creamy Coco Pirata is a must—a tasty blended rum drink that Villa Cofresi is well-loved for.

Besides the outdoor pool, lively beach bar and ocean views, the on-site fitness center, game room and free parking make Villa Cofresi a total win.

Resort Style Beachfront Hotels

Sometimes, you want it all. The pool, the volleyball court, room service, the fitness center. It’s resort living at its best and Puerto Rico has plenty of it.

Whether you’re traveling with kids or just looking for a super comfortable spot with all the modern amenities, these Puerto Rico beach resorts are sure to scratch the itch.

Hyatt Hacienda Del Mar — San Juan, $$$

Just 25 miles from the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan is a true tropical paradise. The Hyatt Hacienda Del Mar is an upscale, beachfront hotel with an expansive palm tree lined property.

Ocean views are a way of life here, sprouting from nearly every location. The pool, the restaurant, the suites and of course, the sand volleyball courts, all come with sea views.
In true resort style, there are tennis courts and gas grills, hot tubs, a putting green and an activity hut with beach rentals.

Despite being so close to San Juan, the Hyatt Hacienda Del Mar feels worlds away. Nestled on a quiet beach, the golden sand and calm waters will feel like your own private getaway.

Copamarina Beach Resort — Guánica, $$$

Nature lovers will love a stay in Guánica, the bio-rich corner of Southern Puerto Rico, off the Caribbean Sea. Of course, they’ll love it even more with a stay at Copamarina Beach Resort.

Despite a remote location, the Copamarina is family-friendly with all the modern amenities. Rooms come equipped with a terrace or balcony, high speed internet and comfortable bedding that guests rave about.

An excellent spot for weddings or events, the resort practically wrote the book on friendly staff and service, delicious, upscale food and tropical drinks.

Plus, you can rent jet skis, kayaks and paddle boards out front, where dolphins and manatees are a common sighting.

Boutique Beachfront Hotels

Don’t miss their on-site restaurant, Eclipse, which receives rave reviews for their farm-to-table cuisine and airy, beachfront location.

Malecon House — Vieques, $$$

Known for its unique bioluminescent bay tours, Vieques offers a true, tropical island experience. Colorful reefs and white sand beaches provide endless exploration, while lively beach bars and shops dot the boardwalk.

In the middle of it all you’ll find Malecon House—a 13-room, boutique hotel surrounded by lush gardens and ocean views. A peaceful retreat after a full day of ocean activities, Malecon House is loved for the personal touch they add to every last detail.

Amenities include a complimentary daily breakfast, beach chairs, umbrellas, ice-filled coolers and of course, oceanfront suites. Still, above all, guests appreciate the friendly staff more than anything.

Luxury Beachfront Hotels

We can’t forget the stunning luxury properties of Puerto Rico. Home to honeymooners, infinity pools, golf courses and fine dining, the island’s collection of upscale properties present an undeniable paradise. Any one of these resorts promises a truly unforgettable experience.

St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort — Rio Grande, $$$$$

Perhaps the island’s most loved luxury hotel, the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort is a taste of the Caribbean in style, service and amenities. Built on a nearly 500-acre former coconut plantation, the expansive property features nature trails, private gardens, calm beaches and an 18-hole golf course.

Spend the day on the grounds at one of the oceanfront pools or relaxing in the on-site spa. Elegant meals are served at the on-site restaurants, with a range of ocean sports and activities available from the beach.
