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
  • Outdoor pool
  • Games room
  • Free parking

  • Kitchens or kitchenettes in every room
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.

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 I just wish they would update the rooms and kitchen, very outdated but all in all i recommend this hotel.

Perfect place, perfect price

Clean hotel with very courteous staff. Free breakfast and drink daily. My only complaint is that the pool and beach closed at 6pm.

We had a really good time

On a good side - very nice location right on the pristine beach. Close to the San Juan international airport. Nice small casino next door. Good breakfast and good hotel bars. Friendly stuff. On a down side - the hotel and rooms are a bit outdated. I guess due to the security concerns the beach access from the building is closed at 6pm and to access the beach you'll need to use general hotel premisses street access gate and public streets. But still very nice hotel for the money paid.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Rent a car and visit bioluminosity bay at Fajardo (book after 7pm tour for the best view), El Yunque National Forest, Crashboat (most clear water) and Boquerón (quiet, scenic and good snorkeling) beaches.

Hotel Reminds me of the movie "The Shinning"

The hallways were dark, humid and the elevators took forever. The room looked like something from a scary movie but the price made up for it all LOL! The staff was super nice and there were two complementary drinks per day which were good as well as breakfast. Every day there was a choice of fruit, eggs, bacon, toast, waffles made to order, hot oatmeal, potatoes, cereal and Juice. I wouldn't recommend drinking the water and I would wear shoes while in the room. If you are a real vacationer you will only utilize your room to sleep anyway! :-) Ohh the hotel that is front of "ESJ Towers" has an ok casino and a few clubs which were fun! All in all It was a pleasant trip!
