Water Beach Hotel Zest Restaurant Pasta

Next time I’m in Puerto Rico, I hope to stay at the Water Beach Hotel just for Zest, the restaurant on the ground level.

While the Condado was a fabulous hotel, the Water Beach Hotel is just plain sexy. The blue lights and accents, the rooftop lounge, and being right next to the water had me sold. During my visit, the restaurant, Zest, was participating in Puerto Rico Restaurant week and even had two for one drinks!

We had so many options to choose from and since everyone was starving, we started to order everything. The pasta which I had as an entree, was probably one of the most amazing dishes I’ve had on my stay. My friends wanted to go back the next day, just to have this again. It was a homemade fettuccine with a truffle-bacon carbonara that had crabmeat and peas in it. It was hearty with deep rich flavors and filling.

As if it wasn’t enough, for dessert but we had mini donuts with creme and nutella powder on top. I’ll definitely be back.

Conrad Condado Plaza Hotel Sandwich

During my visit for Puerto Rico Restaurant Week, I stayed at the Conrad Condado Plaza, which was a breath-taking hotel! My room was excellent, beautiful, and spacious! Not to mention, we had a balcony and an amazing bathroom.

The hotel also had two pools and a bar inside of the pool! There were steps towards the back of the pool area that led to our own semi private beach. Can you say beach bum?

When I arrived, I was already starving! So I decided on eating inside the hotel cafe even though I wanted local food for the entire trip. I tried this Philly cheese steak with fries and two shots of Don Q. Apparently, and I learned this last time, everyone only really drinks Don Q. But anyways, my sandwich was really messy because it was so cheesy and the steak was just falling out of the bread, but it was amazing nonetheless. I wound up ordering it again on my last day because it was just that good.

The Bar at the hotel was always busy and even an attraction in the evenings. It was a good way to meet other hotel patrons and the staff was really attentive.
