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

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.

Clean, Secure, Convenient

Best included breakfast ever. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very nice, clean rooms and facilities. Security is very good. Felt safe walking in the area to shops etc. Research was confimed that it is the best value in the area. If you want a lot of bling and glitz to waste money this isn't the place. If you a looking for a great location, very safe and clean place to stay with a very nice and helpful staff, ESJ can not be beat.

Don't rent a car especially if you do not speak Spanish and do not like crazy traffic. There are many guided tours that are well worth the cost.

fantastic experience

Though we spent one day, including a night, only at this hotel, our experience with it is fantastic. The location is close to the airport, and from the building you can go to the beach which is just one block away. Also you may get to downtown and the old city by bus. The surrounding area is very good, with many good restaurants and resorts and casinos. We have enjoyed our stay! We plan to come back with family reunion next time spending more time on the beach and in the city.

ESJ November 2014

We stayed for one week at the time share section which was roomy but dated and the last 2 days at the "hotel". Our first room was unsuitable (wet, damp, musty) and when we complained were given a much nicer room. All things considered it was comfortable accomidations but certainly not high end. Nice beach. Safe. Not much help in terms of activities or what to see. If you want to explore San Juan on your own stay here.
