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.
Key facts
  • 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.

Truly a Great Experience

From day one to day six of our stay everything was close to perfect (on one occasion the maid forgot to clean our room). The view, the breakfast in the morning, the staff, the beach, the pool, the room, the Isla Verde area, all were fantastic. We will return next year.

Decent stay not for price

Location of hotel is great if your only wanting to do beach there. Hotel was ok, staff excellent. Carpet in hallways smell, hotel think is due for upgrade. Be prepared to be paying costly cab fees. Would I stay there again no would rent place out in town and def rent a car.

Good Location for a short, cheap getaway

The location, pool, and beach are excellent, but the actual hotel is extremely dated and in need of refurbishment. The staff was friendly, checking in and out was easy, and as far as a hassle free trip, this was great! Compared to the other hotels directly on the beach, this is a fraction of the cost, but what you are getting is only a fraction as good.

Family Vacation

The location of this hotel was amazing, the views from our balcony were breathtaking! Great hotel if traveling with childred and family. Has a whole kitchen. Has a mini mart in lobby that sells just about everything. The free hot breakfast was phenomenal. The staff were very helpful and polite. I just wish they would update the rooms and kitchen, very outdated but all in all i recommend this hotel.
