General
ESJ Towers, San Juan
Location
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.

Rooms
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.
Highlights

Located just five minutes from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) and 15 minutes from the cruise ship pier in Old San Juan, the hotel is close to all major highways. Guests can discover historic forts and buildings and lush tropical rain forests in addition to a variety of golf courses, shopping centers and museums.

Nearby attractions include the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico, Plaza Las Americas, the San Juan Bay Marina, the rum distillery and El Yunque National Rain Forest. Those who wish to enjoy the water will find many opportunities for scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling and day sailing. Family-style food is available at Happy Apple Restaurant, and cocktails are served at Mano a Mano. Those seeking a quick bite to eat can do so at the Pool Bar & Kiosk.

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.

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.
