Good value at the Courtyard Marriot

The best aspects of this hotel are the first rate beach, nice pool and decent restaurant adjacent to the beach. The rooms are a little shabby but the TV is good and the beds are comfortable. Concierge was helpful in booking trips and recommending restaurants in town. The location is nice for the beach, but you're a 15 minute, $21 tax ride to Old San Juan. You hear some jet noise being close to the airport, but they have double pane windows to deaden the sound. The restaurant is pretty good but with limited variety. Its very reasonably priced for a hotel restuarant. The beach is shared with the Ritz Carlton, making this hotel a very good value.

`one week in puerto Rico

The hotel staff were very professional, courteous, really seemed to enjoy thier work, they were very friendly and the beach staff went beyond helpful. I enjoy the concept of the individual unbrella. it saves a lot of aggravation trying to find a hut early in the morning. The water was warm and inviting, but we had a lot of wave action. The room was dated and I missed my own bed but Andrea was great and she kept the room in tip top shape. even though she spoke no english and I didn't speak any spanish we seemed to get the job done.

Good location!

This motel needs to spend money on beds, bathroom and carpet. If you are planning to staying there please ask room not facing at apartment building but other side. Very good location.

weekend getaway

while the hotel staff was friendly, they were not very caring. I got extremely ill and needed a hospital visit and they could have cared less. very disappointed. i will go back to Puerto Rico, but will not stay at this hotel. the buffet breakfast and dinner was excellent. i would highly recommend going to their buffet for either or both meals.

Good for a few days

I was very disappointed with my stay at the courtyard marriott in isla verde. My room was okay and not what I expected. There was dust on the lamps the bathroom was not clean there was a used towel still sitting on the sink the rug was not vacuum. Although my husband and I was given a room on the 7th floor with a partial ocean view we could still hear the construction on the upper portion of the hotel. The gift shop was closed for reconstruction. The staff was okay, I have tried in several occasion to stir up a conversation with the staff to get input on where to go and they were not open. All in all it was a leaching vacation thanks to just walking out the the beach.

Convenient location, great beach access

The best reasons to choose this hotel are: 1) Beach front location - you can literally wall 100' from the pool area and sit on a beach chair just steps from the ocean 2) Location - the airport is a 5 minute drive from the hotel (though that does mean you hear the planes taking off), plus there are numerous restaurants within a 10 minute walk

winter getaway

The overall experience was good. I booked a room requesting a firm mattress. Only to find out that the entire hotel has only one option. The sheets during day one wasn't as fresh and housekeeping was notified. all in all the location was good.

Fantastic Staff

The manager (Jose) went out of his way to take care of us when we asked for vegetarian food. He provided us great service. The bartenders are very friendly and knowledgeable. Sally is an excellent and creative bartender; she created some great drinks for us. The front desk was also very accommodating to us.
