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.

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.

Great location

We stayed for 1 night following a cruise, the location is fantastic - right on the beautiful Isla Verde beach. The rooms are huge and the kitchen area is a bonus. The rooms could do with an update but they were clean and the price is very good.

yes.....i would return

The amenities and the staff and location trump the fact that the physical plant needs a buff up. I would return to ESJ next year....as it was a good value.

nice time in island verde

The pool and beach were great. The room was fine. Nice TV, firm mattresses. Nice kitchenet had everything u might need. The lobby was run down-very seventies. The hallway carpets were in desperate need of replacing. Overall nice time. No complaints.

Great Vacation Tri

I'm in my mid 20s and thought EJS Tower was a great hotel to stay in. Everything was in walking distance and the staff were very friendly. The staff also had great knowledge of places to go, things to see, and eat. The beach and pool were easy access. Anything we needed was brought to us. The front des was very accomadting to our needs of early arrival/check out. The rooms were also very clean and organized. (Could use an update, but it is no big deal) The only thing I would say is that the mini mart prices where too high and rather take the 7/8 minute walk to Walgreens.
