The ESJ Towers Hotel San Juan has a design-led feel that focuses on local artistic traditions, from the 20th century modern prints in the Mano a Mano bar to the curving sofas wrapped around distinctive wood sculptures in the lobby. Suites as well as apartments offer long-term options, which makes sense, since the tropical surrounds of the outdoor pool and views of Isla Verde beach may tempt guests to stay longer. Food comes in the form of casual buffets at the Happy Apple or a poolside hot dog from the outdoor kiosk, and visitors can cram in as much table tennis, billiards or water aerobics as they like in and around the facility - there are no extra resort fees.

Neighborhood
Isla Verde Beach is a prominent attraction in San Juan, and at the ESJ Towers in the Condado district, you're barely a few sandy footprints away from the Atlantic Ocean.

Hints and tips
Feel like trying something in the true Latino style on your Puerto Rican trip - Salsa classes are run at various venues around Condado, with some, such as Picante Lobby Bar & Lounge, offering the first hour for free.

you get added value for a lower price.

We read many reviews before booking this hotel again. We have stayed at intercontinental next doir and condado plaza down the road. Those hotels have updated rooms and better pools for sure. But when you factor a $170 price tag, $20 valet, $15 casino fee, $40 tab for breakfast and a $20 bar tab( 1 drink per guest) it's just too pricey to stay at those other four star resorts. At SJTowers you have a $120 price tag, free parking, no casino fee, free hot breakfast, and one free drink per guest per day. The rooms have decor from the 90s but if you get past that the pool is nice and a casino is next door.

STAY AT ESK

Good value place to stay, friendly staff, room had good amenities (i.e., a/c, lanai, iron/ironing board, hair drier, fridge, stove, microwave.) Room was clean but hall ways have musky smell, probably from people coming from beach or pool wet onto carpets. Very good complementary breakfast. Free parking was a definite plus.

Very Good Hotel

This hotel is well located close to all tourist areas and restaurants. The beach area was great. They had beach chairs and towels for your convenience.The staff was very friendly and informative. The breakfast was more than adequate and your stay also includes two free drinks per person every evening. Parking on premises was convenient. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean. Will definitely stay again on my next trip to Puerto Rico.

Best Location, great staff!!

The ESJ Hotel was perfect for our stay. The staff is super attentive and willing to help. The room was big, clean and very convenient. Breakfast was good and so were the drinks. The only thing is that there is no AC in the public areas, but everything else worked perfect for us.

Labor Day Weekend

I choose ESJ tower because of the price offered. It included free parking and free buffet breakfast and 2 free drinks per day. The breakfast was perfect! I stayed with my wife and was assigned the 11th floor. The view of the Isla Verde beach was awesome at that floor! The room includes a kitchenette with fridge, stove, coffee maker, sink, and everything needed to cook. There are a little store where you can buy almost everything to cook. The pool was very clean and they offer daily amenities like Bingo with cash prices. At walking distance there are a lot of fine restaurants and fast foods and 5 stars resorts with casinos and night life that the ESJ towers don't offer. The beach is also at walking distance with a private gate I would recommend it.
