Location, location

This hotel is on a lovely beach which is right outside the back door. There are hammocks, couches, and chairs set up beach-side which we enjoyed in the evenings. We were within walking distance of a couple of good restaurants. Food can be expensive so be prepared for that. We rented a car and could drive easily to other beaches and restaurants. Our last night there, an 11 piece band set up in one of the hotel's restaurants which opened into the lobby. It was a magnificent experience. We did a rainforest tour and a zip line adventure. For both, we phoned the company and asked to be picked up at our hotel. There was no extra charge (we did tip the driver) and we were picked up at the front door - so easy. We drove into old San Juan twice - one afternoon and a Friday evening. It really came to life in the evening and the food was deliciously memorable. We also found, with the help of a local, a road-side food stand in PiƱones. You should ask the hotel concierge to point out one of these to you for another great palate experience. Keep in mind that your bags will be checked by the USDA as you leave Puerto Rico so check to be sure you are bringing back nothing illegal. The coffee there is great and can be brought back. I have heard complaints about the heat and humidity during the summer months but we felt the temperatures were pleasant and the humidity far less than what we experience in coastal SC.

Cheap and delicious food can be found at roadside stands but make sure you get a recommendation for which to try. Not so cheap but incredible food can be found in old San Juan. Try a coffee shop while there. Puerto Rico is know for it's great coffee.

Puerto Rico

Loved the Mariott Courtyard at Isla Verda. I love having the pool right off the beach. You can set up recliners at the beach and pool for the day and then go in between. Great water. Isla Verde businesses a bit dated with only a few non-chain restaurants to choose from. Cab fare to Old San Juan expensive for a 15 minute ride $25 one way. Otherwise great.. They need a reliable bus system

Bathrooms are much in need of an upgrade. While beach and lobby areas are very nice, garage and rooms need work.

Fun times

Overall we loved this hotel and resort! The beach was beautiful and the pool was great! The staff at the beach and pool were wonderful and very helpful! The concierge and staff inside were not so helpful, they kept telling us different things! We loved that every room had a balcony! The one thing we wuld change if we could would have to be the weather! It was cloudy and rainy everyday, except our last day! Not the staffs fault though! We will deffinetly be coming back!
