The ESJ Towers Hotel San Juan has a design-led feel that focuses on local artistic traditions, from the 20th century modern prints in the Mano a Mano bar to the curving sofas wrapped around distinctive wood sculptures in the lobby. Suites as well as apartments offer long-term options, which makes sense, since the tropical surrounds of the outdoor pool and views of Isla Verde beach may tempt guests to stay longer. Food comes in the form of casual buffets at the Happy Apple or a poolside hot dog from the outdoor kiosk, and visitors can cram in as much table tennis, billiards or water aerobics as they like in and around the facility - there are no extra resort fees.

  • 2 restaurants: Happy Apple and Pool Bar and Kiosk
  • Lounge/bar: Mano a Mano

Neighborhood
Isla Verde Beach is a prominent attraction in San Juan, and at the ESJ Towers in the Condado district, you're barely a few sandy footprints away from the Atlantic Ocean. Try out local pastimes like surfing and snorkeling - the Isla Verde Reef Marine Reserve is full of dazzling corals - or take the cultured route and enjoy the local craftsmanship at the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico. Hungry travelers will find meals to satisfy every taste at the nearby Chili's, Platos and La Piccola Fontana.
Hints and tips
Feel like trying something in the true Latino style on your Puerto Rican trip - Salsa classes are run at various venues around Condado, with some, such as Picante Lobby Bar & Lounge, offering the first hour for free.

business trip

The hotel staff was great the service was great. The pool was beautiful and so was the beach access. It is a great place if you want to stay within a budget. Close to the grocery store and has a kitchenette and big refrigerator. After a change of rooms it was clean and perfect. I blame the maid for the room not being cleaned correctly. My second room was awesome. I would go back again.......

Great Value for the Money

This hotel has a great location. It is in Carolina just off of Isla Verde Avenue and very close to the Airport. The hotel is on the beach and has many good restaurants close by. The Staff was very nice. The Wi-Fi was only available in the main areas. If you are wanting a Five Star Luxury Hotel, this is not the hotel for you. But if you want a hotel that has good amenities, by the beach, clean, and affordable, this is a great place to stay.

First time in Puerto Rico

Not a 5 star hotel but decent enough if you plan to visit PR on a budget. Hotel was clean, staff friendly and I enjoyed the free daily drink and complementary breakfast. It's very central, hotel is about 5 minutes from airport and close to San Juan.

Damp

I guess you can't expect much when it's only a 3 star resort. The room isn't he nicest but the view of the ocean is decent since I was on the 3rd floor. The room feels damp for some reason. It could be humidity from the AC unit. I won't stay there again unless, it's dirty cheap.

The rooms are very dated, however, they were comfortable and clean.

The location was good but the beach area was smaller than expected. The rooms were dated but comfortable for families with kids. Enjoyed breakfast buffet every morning which was plentiful and fresh! We were greeted by the same friendly server every morning who was very welcoming and a great sense of humor - loved going down because of her. She made us feel very welcome every day and greeted us with a big smile! Since it was Easter week, the resort was very crowded but festive and fun! Rented a car and visited Old San Juan, since excursions and such were all booked up. Overall, it was a great trip and I would certainly visit PR again and stay at ESJ!

Great stay

My friend and I had a great stay! I wasn't sure what to expect because of some mixed reviews, but we found that our room was huge and clean. The beds were comfortable, the kitchenette and mini mart on the property were super conveneint. Breakfast every morning was delicious. The location 5 minutes from the airport and steps from the beach cant be beat. Isla Verde Beach is beautiful! The weather was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Rico the bartender! Thank you, ESJ, for a great vacation... great accomodations for a steal!
