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.

Located a mile from the airport but away from the noise and only a short taxi ride away. The Verdanza Hotel is steps away from a bus stop.

The Verdanza Hotel, Carolina enjoys a superb location in the heart of Isla Verde, Puerto Rico only steps away from one of the Caribbean's liveliest white sand beaches and other great area attractions.

Great Value in San Juan

We stayed 8 nights in this hotel while competing in the Half-Ironman race. We booked a club level floor and enjoyed the venue provided. I'd definitely recommend this hotel for the value and comfort we experienced.

Fantastic!

Every staff member was friendly, which made me feel welcomed. The hotel was close to a strip where you could shop for a bit of souvenirs. Also, the beach was literally a 5 minute walk away. The restaurants within the hotel were superb - talk about fine dining. I really enjoyed myself, and can't wait to go back.

nice walk to the beach but nothing special

Front desk staff was very helpful. We arrived early in the morning after the cruise and they arranged for our rooms to be ready for us within an hour. There was some confusion regarding our confirmation but it was cleared up quickly. Concierge was great- very helpful with sites, transportation and food. Location was just a short quarter mile walk to the beach. There were several food and entertainment options around including a casino. Nice pool which was shared with another hotel. Room very large and clean. Overall I think this is a nice place to stay. But in my opinion for the cost-unless you get a deal- I'm sure you can get a beach front hotel with views for the same price.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Take the public bus to Old San Juan during the day. Route T5. Only $0.75 each way. Very safe and you get to see the real city. Once in San Juan there is a free trolly operated by the city. We stayed on for 2 loops taking in all the sites.

Amazing, affordable Spring Break hotel

My friends and I planned to go to the Verdanza for Sprig Break without knowing exactly what to expect. I will say the rooms were a bit small and parts of the hotel could have been a bit cleaner, but overall I was amazed at the quality for the price we paid. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful; the location was PERFECT (a quick ride from the airport, two blocks from beautiful Isla Verde beach, walking distance from some of San Juan's best night life and restaurants, and a short cab ride to Condado and Viejo San Juan). The rooftop lounge area was perfect for evening drinks with friends, and the pool and hot tub were wonderful. When I return to San Juan, I will definitely staff at the verdanza again!

Great Stay

I was very impressed with the hotel, its staff and the restaurants. The front desk and room service were just wonderful. The Verdanza is minutes from the airport and a block away from one of the most beautiful beaches on Puerto Rico. The rooms located around the pool with balconys are great and quiet and the pool area is just so nicely appointed. Will stay there again very soon and recommend it highly to anyone looking to stay in the area. Thank you Verdanza for a terrific stay!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

While the area has the usual suspects in terms of dining, everyone must partake in one breakfast, lunch or dinner at ESPANA, a terrific bakery that is worth the trip and is owned and operated by Spaniards who know how to deliver great food, including Spanish and local specialties. Don't forget the coffee, it is better than any starbucks on the planet and pair it with one of their pasteries and it is heaven on earth!

Serious management problems

No way to describe this as four star. There is an Embassy Suites 50 yards away that is far superior, but I don't think of that chain as four star. Main problem was wifi only existed within lobby despite claims to the contrary and existing routers, which couldn't be fixed in six days. Second, no real bar except at night. Third, rooms are seriously run down. Fourth, restaurants are inappropriate and on the whole poorly staffed. Fifth, no gift shop.

Great Getaway

We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. It is not brand new, but it is clean and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. The Asian restaurant was excellent (and I am a very particular foodie). The treadmills in the fitness room were top notch. The maintenance was very well done (a children's birthday party by the pool left a mess, but it was quickly and quietly restored to lovely condition). We had previously stayed at La Concha in Condado and found the quieter, more personal service at Verdanza to be far more to our liking. We will definitely visit again.
