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.

Great Getaway

I had family members meet me @ the hotel and had a great outdoor lunch and had a great time. The staff at the resturants and hotel were great...everytime you met up with them. You were never rushed out of anywhere.the resturant Chef even cooked us food that as not on their menu, just for us. They totally catered to all of our needs.

Great stay for the price!

Friendly staff, located in an urban and safe area. Right across from the Carolina beach. The hotel has three restaurants on-site and the food is good for the price. Also, check out 'Mi-Casita' in the adjoining strip mall; it has awesome food at a reasonable price. On the downside, the hotel room didn't have a microwave, would have been nice. The room clearly had plumbing problems, we had to request assistance on one occasion. However the staff were extremely quick in responding and alleviating the issue. Air conditioning was also suspect, the room seemed to get way too cold. But, we promptly opened the windows and didn't bother complaining. In all we felt the staff is extremely responsive and goes out of their way to help if one does request assistance. I must point out that we aren't extremely fussy travelers, we were looking for a safe, comfortable stay with dining options so that we could focus on what we actually traveled for: enjoying the Caribbean. Verdanza fits the bill nicely. This is an awesome place to stay for the price.

Great Value..Family Friendly Child Friendly..Great Staff

I recently took a trip with my 9yr old son and as stated in prior review the location is great, just a few mins from the airport. I was shocked at how quickly we arrived at the hotel after leaving the airport took a few mins. Transportation in the area is great, the bus run like every 15 mins into Old San Juan. The hotel itself is very nice. The 8020 restaurant is a bit expensive for breakfast so we went off site exploring to have breakfast..which is also close by. I did like the Asian Fusion restaurant and thought it was worth it. The little snack deli on the location was expensive also 2 teas cost me at $6 bucks. The beach is one block away. The staff was SUPER Friendly and very nice to us. The rooms were moderate but nice..the bathrooms could use a bit of a upgrade. The pool was nice and I definitely felt like the hotel was family\child friendly.

Great Restaurants in the area that are inexpensive. Close to Taco Bell, Burger King, Ponderosa, Walgreens, KFC, and Pizza Hut. All practically on one block. Even the super market is two blocks away.

Verdanza Stay

Duration: 1 week Location: Was a close drive from the airport (about a 5 min), A block and a half from the beach, about a 20 min drive from Old San Juan, and not far from numerous night clubs, and restaurants. For great home made rican food check out Mi Casita which is located in a lot around the corner from the Hotel. Staff: Friendly and accommodating they welcomed me with a coconut Icy, and gave me options on different rooms. Somebody was always at the door to greeat/open it. Everybody speaks English in case you're not Espanol savy. Rooms: Rooms were comfy, and nice, and had everything you need, equipped with blow dryers Ironing board, Wi Fi, Phone. However, I don't see in spending too much time in the room when in PR unless you're sick, or sleeping. Amenities: Pool is nice, bar and food service running orders to you all day. POOL IS OPEN 24-7 which is aweome. Conference Center, Event Space, and 3 restaurants (Tapas Bar, Rican food, & Asian Fusion) complement the hotel Lobby, however they were a bit pricey. All in all a great hotel, good staff and amenities. Good place to stay .

Convienent to airport

We stayed at the Verdanza because of it's proximity to the airport. We found nothing to dislike about it. Clean, modern, nice people. It is not close to Old Town or New Town, San Juan or the cruise ships. About a 25 minute cab ride.

Great Experience, Friendly Staff

We really enjoyed our stay. There are still some relics of the hotel renovation (the closet wasn't quite finished, the bathroom door closed awkwardly). Other than a few critters in the room (which can be expected in a floor-level, pool-side, tropical-location hotel), we had a great experience.

Really nice folks

Perfect for us. Went to visit family so didn't spend much time at the hotel. Good rooms, wonderful view. Front desk met us with a cold drink and a cool cloth to wash up... before we checked in...very refreshing. Complaints were promptly addressed. Got stranded off the beaten path and could not get a taxi to come get us. Called the hotel and they had a taxi there within ten minutes. Front desk folks called later that evening to make sure we had arrived back at the hotel. Convenient to airport. Would stay there again. Staff went out of their way to assist us.
