With multiple bars, indoor and outdoor eateries, shops, three separate pools, and an infinity pool, there’s no question as to why the trendy La Concha is considered one of the best places to stay in San Juan. Aside from the amenities, La Concha’s unique architecture (it’s built to resemble an oversized conch shell) is enough to never want to leave.
