Famillytrip

This hotel is very nice to go as single or familly or with group of firends because has it all. Great pool area for kids and a nice bar inside the pool, the beach is right behind the pool area 2 seconds walking, nightlife is amaicing with live salsa and merengue music. I dont gamble but the casino was very nice. The room was clean and neat confortable and the view to the ocean and the pool to the side was great. Room service was not that efficient but overall I like it very much my beautifull girl loved it and I am planning to visit them again very soon.

Great Value

I had a great experience in this hotel. The staff was friendly. All the rooms have a balcony, the higher the floor the better the view. We arrived early and they were kind enough to check us in. We appreciated the complimentary free drink. Nice beach and pool. In the evenings the lobby is very lively with a live band. This hotel is in a good location. It's closed to the airport and to the different San Juan attractions. Great Value!

Beautiful beach, not so beautiful staff!

I traveled with my two children ages 14 and 17, the front desk staff were friendly and welcoming however the cleaning staff were extremely rude. Bad points: I was barged in by housekeeping who proceeded to turn the TV on and watch soap opera and stand next to me while I lie in bed shocked! After 15-20 minutes of her half cleaning and watching TV, she threw the remote control on the bed and left. Our hotel room was dirty, the air conditioner leaked water on the rug, the room was musty (moldy), food in restaurants were bland. Good points: The beach is BEAUTIFUL, pool is nice, casino was a good size, free salsa lesson was fun!! Expect extra charges from tax at checkout

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you are taking taxi on excursions and outings, it will become very expensive. There is a small plaza within walking distance that have Denny's (cheap), Walgreens and other stores. Much to do in PR zip lining, bioluminescent tour, Old San Juan, rainforest, all of which were amazing!

Would visit again

The greatest thing about this hotel was the location. It was less than 10 mins from the airport and nicely located right on the beach. My children really enjoyed the accessible beach. The hotel had 5 resturants which were okay but a little pricey. The service was good and the staff were friendly.

Would recommend!

We debated on staying here or in Old San Juan and we made the correct choice. Everything was easily accessible and the taxis charged a flat inexpensive rate to get around. Staying on Isla Verde was very relaxing. The views from the hotel room and lobby were refreshing. Staying on the beach is the way to go. The service was great and we upgraded to a suite for a fraction of the listed price. The staff were very friendly people. Some people complained about the airport noise but it very minimal, don't let that be a decision factor. The rooms are very well sound proofed. Would recommend this hotel to all types of travelers!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

The casino is great and has plenty of slot/card games but it would be a waste to spend a lot of time and money in there when you have a tropical paradise right outside.
