Enjoy the local beauty and culture of San Juan nestled within a contemporary atmosphere at the Verdanza Hotel, perched just moments away from Puerto Rico's famous Alambique Beach. Relax with a clear conscience, as the hotel's commitment to responsible business practices includes rainwater-catching for its gardens, and serving locally-roasted coffee. Kids will have hours of fun in the water spray park, while grownups take a dip in the pool or unwind in the whirlpool. Guests have many food choices, with three signature restaurants all serving up continental cuisine. Wine fans will appreciate the Di Vino Wine & Tapas Bar, and its many varietals on offer.

A shaded veranda allows clients to sit outdoors as the sunset gives way to the nightlife Isla Verde, Puerto Rico.

Perfect holiday escape from the snow

This hotel was perfect! The staff was wonderful -- professional, helpful and courteous. The location was great -- an easy two block walk to the beach, easy acccess to the highway and a one block walk to a main road with restaurants and stores. We enjoyed the variety of eateries in the hotel. I gave the "room comfort" a 4/5 only because the AC was a bit chilly for my family (even with changing the temperature settings). If I have the opportunity to return to San Juan I will definitely reserve a room at the Verdanza Hotel.

Good value, location in Isla Verde area

older, renovated hotel a block from the beach in Isla Verde. Stayed 2 nights in a ground floor poolside room. Bed and room was fine - Shower and toilet area obviously old and dingy. Popular with locals but can be noisy. Wedding celebration went on til 3 am on a Sat. Kids party held on Sun generated a lot of noise and loud music around the pool for 6 hours. Staff was unsympathetic to my complaints with the noise. Good coffee place in the lobby. Close to the airport, Embassy Suites casino, local restaurants and quick markets. Easy walk to the beach. Saw a few airline crew staying there. Would probably stay in the tower section rather than the poolside section if I went again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Cab to airport is $20 one way. Car rentals are available there but they impose a daily parking fee even if you rent a car from them. Most hotels there do this. Cabs and parking are expensive in San Juan. Bus is cheap but extremely slow and unreliable schedule.

I could only take cold showers in Puerto Rico...

This is not a four star hotel. The room was small and dingy with a miserable bed and the water never got warm.

Weekend Getaway

This hotel is in the center of it all. A quick ride from the airport. Family oriented hotel. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Rooms are comfortable. Decor of the the hotel was very very nice. Three restaurants, a small coffee counter and a bar right in the hotel. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family because it is very reasonable and all the amentities are at your fingertips. If you walk down the block there is MarketPlace to purchase bottles of wine or snacks for the pool.

Nice stay at Verdanza

Nice hotel. Nice location. Clean rooms and very friendly service. Wish they would add some more entertainment options like a band or something to make it a bit more lively. Managers cocktail hour was great. Arnaldo in the 80/20 restaurant was very friendly and provided great service.

A Place to Sleep

The hotel was clean, but it wasn't spectacular. It was only 5 minutes from the airport and walking distance to the beach, so it was an overall win. There is nothing fancy about it. The staff is very nice. The WiFi is iffy. For the price I would stay again, but would seek other options first.

Isla Verde is a good place to stay with kids as there is a wide variety of places to eat. There's "known" fast food places as well as local food and chain restaurant favorites such as Chili's & Outback

Verdanza stay

I gave this hotel four stars because of its beauty, varied restaurants within the hotel, close proximity to the airport and the amenities. Did not feel that special something/welcome from the staff at the front desk. The room's rug needed to be replaced because it was stained and the base and corners of walls were maybe damaged by water but was definitely in need of repair. The room was freezing even though I turned off the AC, didn't think that was possible since I was in the Caribbean. If provided a better room and staff that realizes the importance of hospitality to every customer, I would recommend to a friend.

Less than 10 minutes drive to the airport and a taxi is always readily available across the street. (Always have small bills in case the driver claims he doesn't have change to provide you).

Should be considered a upscale Motel not a "Hotel"

The "Hotel" was ok, nothing special. The rooms set-up looks a bit like a motel but the rooms are a better looking. Pool is very nice including the kids pool. The sports restaurant is very nice and the guys are very nice. The only problem I would say I had was the parking which I can't understand. Hotel guest as well as guest who dine pay $10 plus per day cash but if you walk in from outside to dine or the private parties they waive the parking.
