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 Value & location

We had a wonderful time at this hotel. It has just gone thru an extensive renovation, so the room was very nice (except the bed linens were rough). It is in a superb location just two blocks from the nicest beach and all the really wonderful old hotels and casinos. The restaurants inside the restaurant were exceptional and we highly recommend the French bistro and Asian restaurant. The hotel offered free internet with a printer and has a nicely equipped excercise room on the top floor. The pool was lovely with nice chairs and covered areas.

Great Time!

I booked this trip for my daughters (7 & 15yrs) and myself and we had the best time ever! The hotel was perfectly located, food & beach all within a one block radius. Perfect! The room was clean and the staff was great!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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

SanJuan getway

4 night stay at the Verdanza was a pleasant one overall. Hotel is pretty nice, rooms could use a little maintence if your the traveler that would complain about odd screws holding a soap dish up in the shower or a stain on the carpet or a tear in a sheet you might be disappointed. However we were able to deal with these small things for the positives. Beginning with the staff, very friendly all smiling holding doors open and just very helpful. Location is great, 1 block to the Beach and to Isla verdes strip with restaurants and some bars 15 min cab ride west to Old San Juan. Yes I would stay here again.

It's become a favorite of ours in San Juan

Right next to the airport in the Isla Verde beach area of San Juan, the Verdanza is an excellent value. Rooms are not large but they are clean. The grounds are immaculately kept and the restaurants are uniformly very good. Staff is well trained and helpful. As long as they keep it up, I will keep coming back.

Nice hotel, especially for the price

The pool was nice, there were 5 restaurant options, a very nice lobby and staff. Parking was $10 a day. The downsides were an old and small bathroom, no elevator in the 3 story tower of the hotel (there are 2 towers, ask for one with an elevator), and the shower handle didn't adjust the temperature properly

Nice Hotel with Great Staff

Once we finally found the hotel (we used the San Juan mailing address instead of Isla Verde), we were greeted by a very helpful and friendly staff. My wife had a knee injury and they helped me get her around with a wheelchair. The room was very nice as was the pool. I would definitely stay there again.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Your GPS device will bring you to downtown San Jose if you use the hotel mailing address like I did. Be sure to use Isla Verde and you'll avoid terrible traffic and hassles.

Good Value, Good Location

Overall good experience. Older rooms in the old hotel building need updating (to put it kindly), but tower rooms are clean, new, and comfortable. Staff is excellent. Helpful, friendly, accommodating. We had a problem at check-in, but staff were helpful, and all was resolved. We were also comped breakfast at the buffet. Nice touch. Close to Old San Juan (we rented a car - 8 minute drive), 2 blocks from the beach, and plenty of necessities nearby (cheap food on the go, gas stations, etc.). Overall a good, clean, pleasant place to stay if you don't mind traveling a few minutes back and forth between your hotel and Old San Juan.

Great hotel, great location

Very comfortable hotel that is family friendly & a short 1 and a half blocks away from the beach. The staff is very professional nah helpful. They have excellent restaurants on site as well as in the immediate area & literally steps away from several casino's. It's a great place to stay if your visiting Puerto Rico or there on a business trip.
