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.

Guests are just minutes away from the Puerto Rico Museum of Art and the Caribbean's largest shopping mall, the Plaza Las Americas Mall. Visit the Mozaik World Village Bazaar for global fair-trade products, and Casa Bacardi to learn more about (and sample) their famous rum.

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

Good, bad and Ugly.

Hotel on a scale of 1-10, an 8, because the Hotel was clean and the staff very friendly. The part of town where hotel was located, on scale of 1-10, a 5--dirty, poor. We would never stay in this part of San Juan again. Very little to do--did not appear very safe after dark. When we got to the pier and on the ship, it was great to be away from the rough side of San Juan.

ok hotel; great location for price

This hotel was perfect for the one night we stayed prior to our Caribbean cruise. Great location. 5-10 min taxi ride from airport ($15). 15-20 min taxi ride from Old San Juan. One block away from beautiful Isla Verde beach. Short walk to just about every fast food/ restaurant option imaginable. Everything from Burger King to authentic Puerto Rican cuisine to Ruth's Chris steakhouse. Would not recommend staying for long periods of time. Hotel was clean enough but room smelled musty and air vents were dusty. Pool was very kid friendly, with lots of them splashing and screaming. (better for families). Check in was smooth and the staff helpful. hotel restaurant not great- better to take walk down street to Metropol restuarant- Great Puerto Rican/ Cuban food!! You know it's good when it was packed with locals and tourists both times we visited. Overall, hotel served it's purpose, but for same price, friends stayed at the luxurious San Juan Hotel and Casino Waldorf Astoria collection just down the street with 3 beachfront pools. You get what you paid for at Verdanza

after cruise getaway

My family and I which included 11 of us went to a seven day cruise. After the cruise, we stayed at the Verdanza Hotel for two days. At the front desk, the people were very helpful and courteous and even held our bags for four hours because our rooms were not ready. Even though the pool was too warm, we really enjoyed it. Every fast food eatery was walking distance even the beach. We couldn't do much because it rained for the rest of stay. I would recommend this hotel. I was a little dissappointed that the boutique shop in the hotel was at of business. A couple of times, I went to the Coladas bar in the hotel and it was closed at 1:00pm. I think it should have been opened by 12:00pm, considering that people are on vacation. I would definitely stay here again.

Fast food restaurants if you are traveling with children. Walking distance to Burger King, KFC, Taco Bell, Church's Chicken and Walgreens. I would recommend the Casita Restaurant if you like spanish food, which is also walking distance.

Great location and great service

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in explaining nearby attractions. The hotel was in a great location, just 2 blocks from the beach. You could see the ocean from our hotel room. Within walking distance (maybe 5 minutes) of several great restaurants and other hotels, which saved us tons of money on taxi fare. All of the taxi drivers knew the location of our hotel so we didn't have to explain directions at all. All of the excursions and tours we went on had pick-up available from the hotel. The room was a great size and kept very clean. The bed was probably the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on. Each room had a mini-fridge and a safe. The only downside to the room was very little water pressure in the shower. The Puerto Rican restaurant inside the hotel "Coladas" had amazing food.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

You must do a day excursion to go snorkeling. It was by far my favorite day of the trip. There is information available at the tour desk in the hotel. The boat is called The Barefoot IV. A driver picks you up from the hotel in the morning and drives you to the marina. You spend time sailing on the boat to a private island where you can swim or collect seashells. They serve you lunch and free drinks (including rum) and also fresh fruit. In the afternoon you go out to a reef to go snorkeling. The price was very reasonable (85 I think) and worth every penny. It was absolutely beautiful!

There's lots of restaurants and fast food choices down the block. Beach is less than 5 minutes away. Love the pool, spray park, and jacuzzi!

Any type of food places are around de corner.The bus stop to Old San Juan is less than 100 feet from hotel, it cost 75 cents if you avoid rush hours the buses are almost empty. Trip to El Yunque and Luquillo beach is the best value.

Excellent Hotel

This hotel is located next to the airport, just 5 minutes away. Just one block from a nice beach. For me this hotel was perfect because it is in the north center of the island. The Staff was excelent and very polite. I will stay there next time. The pool is nice and it has a kid water park (small).
