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.

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

Verdanza Hotel in Isla Verde

Isla Verde is not the nicest part of Puerto Rico. I suggest staying in Condado. If you do stay in Isla Verde, I would stay at the Intercontinental Hotel or el San Juan as these two hotels offer casinos, stores, restaurants, nice pools, bars, and entertainment.

Don't wait around for the local busses. Puerto Rico's bus system is awful.

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...

I could only take cold showers in Puerto Rico...

This is not a four star hotel. The room was small and dingy with a miserable bed and the water never got warm.

Verdanza

The Verdanza Hotel was a nice location to begin our daily travels around Puerto Rico. The staff seemed very friendly and helpful. It helps to know Spanish although most people can speak English. We just found that they warm up to you more if you speak Spanish to them. Luckily my husband is both fluent and charming in Spanish. We thought the hotel overall was very clean..no problems there! No shortage of hot water for the showers either. Each room had a free refrigerator, good A/C and a free safe. We had the standard room with 2 double beds and a balcony. It was kind of tight for 3 adults and 3 suitcases, but we managed ok. We weren't crazy about the fact that we had to pay for parking ($10 a day) for our rental car and we thought the fitness room could have been bigger and better. Overall, we were happy with our choice for the price!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Chili's restaurant was priced as it is in the states. Many other spots we visited we overpriced for what you got. There are not really many places nearby for breakfast othere than fast food. Chili's also served a decent breakfast.

Good hotel, good location

I booked the hotel based on previous reviews from other travelers. I requested an early check in but unfortunately was not possible. Room was clean. THe beach is just steps away and plenty of casinos around.

San Juan Hotel

The room was excellent and very clean, the pool and location were great, but the restaurant was expensive and the food was lackluster.

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
