Area description
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. Visit our concierge desk for information on routes and itineraries. In addition to a bus stop across the street and a car rental office on the property, a trolley service courtesy of the Municipality of Carolina takes guests around and about the Isla Verde area. Called SiTrac, the distinctive red trolley bus completes its route every 25 minutes from 6 am to 5 pm. Taxis are also easily available at the hotel, day and night.
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. At night, Isla Verde comes alive with a wide range of nightlife choices, from live entertainment, to dance clubs, casinos, and restaurants.

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

Never Again

To begin once we got to the room we let the front desk know that the TV reception was terribel, they sent someone to play with it but the end result was the same, we left for dinner at the hotel we order plump wine and we get sake, we return to the room to find out that the TV then would not turn on and neither the two lamps in the front by the door, call the front desk again.The welcome screen when you turn the TV on reads Holiday Inn that's what that hotel was a year ago, then is follow by the one from Verdanza.The bathroom very uncomfortable when they "remodel" the room I guess they forgot they needed a toilet you have to see it.The next day no one gave service to the room.Never Again it was my first experience with [...]and Summit Hotels.

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.

Good location, mediocre hotel

Ffrom the outside, the hotel is nice. The rooms themselves are unclean and barely stocked with supplies. Each night we had to call the front desk to ask for more towels, as they would only leave 2 sets for 6 people. The toilets clogged frequently and the vents for the rooms were filthy. Had to wait 2 hours to check in, due to bedding arrangement request that was priorly noted with the reservation.

ok not worth the money i spent

First stay here the room smelled horrid. Stains on the bedsheets. Dirty smelly elevators. They did let us in the room a little early.I would never recommend this hotel. The embassy suites across the street is cheaper and nicer.

Wonderful trip but...

The rooms need work! The bathroom's do not have fans so the towels stay damp and smell after one use! Housekeeping will bring some ASAP but the smell lingers due to the shower curtain smelly moldy as well. I checked the beds upon arrival (to inspect for bed bugs) and I was amazed to find the mattress pad had not been changed and had stains and hair from the previous patron. The mattress was sunken in and saggy as well(that's why they needed mattress pads). Also, the rooms are small. There isn't much room to move around. Management was great but the workers at David's Cookies were not so great. The pool was clean and never congested with people. The pool and the location by far are the only positive aspects of this hotel. We selected this hotel because of the splash park (for our daughter which did not enjoy it as much as the pool) All in all, I much rather have spent more on a better hotel. We will not be returning to this hotel.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Piu Bello on Isla Verde Ave is a wonderful little cafe that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is great, portions are generous,and the service is great! It's a long walk or short drive (free parking)but definitely worth it! The food in the hotel is decent but not worth it. Also, the food at the restaurant in the plaza nearby "Mi Casita" is not that great either.

Not much to write home about...really

I'd say this place is only good for those who don't really care where they stay and are just there to enjoy the town itself. My friends and i had many complaints after our 4 nights here (the water stopped running for a whole day, the jacuzzi didn't work, the pool was always dirty, the cable also stopped working, housekeeping didn't really do much, etc). The only thing they really provided was a basic room with basic amenities (and it wasn't even that cheap compared to other hotels I've stayed at). It was ok but i wouldn't recommend it for anyone looking to have a great hotel experience.

Some problems...

Signed note saying I would be charged $200 if I smoked in the room...Entered room and it smelled of cigarettes. Asked management to note it to avoid paying fee...they sprayed room...but it really did not help. AC kept blowing in cigarette smoke...Room was crowded, especially toilet area. Very cramped. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Still, I would not stay there again. Sunday breakfast buffet was only marginal also...

Verdanza Hotel Experience

The good: near airport, nice pool area, and friendly staff. The very bad: dirty room, no hot water, long cab rides to local attractions (dining, nightlife, recreation) other than casinos. There really was no hot water at any point. Overall a 2 star might be generous but the staff was very nice and listened to our complaints. Others in our group and at hotel had basically the same thoughts. Not worth more than $75.00 per night. Very small rooms with tiny bathrooms.
