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.

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.

Family Vacation

The location of this hotel was amazing, the views from our balcony were breathtaking! Great hotel if traveling with childred and family. Has a whole kitchen. Has a mini mart in lobby that sells just about everything. The free hot breakfast was phenomenal. The staff were very helpful and polite. I just wish they would update the rooms and kitchen, very outdated but all in all i recommend this hotel.

Last minute

The hotel was great! Did not expect the ginormous room we were given. It was very clean and a few steps away from the pool. Will be back.

Loved it!

I had such a great time in Puerto rico, that I'm planning my next trip already. It was my birthday and when I got to the room, there was a bottle of wine and snack waiting, along with a happy birthday card. View was great so were the drinks. Carlos from the pool bar was super nice as well as the bartender at mano a mano.

Perfect place, perfect price

Clean hotel with very courteous staff. Free breakfast and drink daily. My only complaint is that the pool and beach closed at 6pm.

Logistical Nightmare of incompetent staff

The hotel had a good location, on the beach, but the beach was rocky and full of seaweed. Not shown in the pictures. The staff, even when they understood, were incompetent in carrying out the simplest of tasks. The free drinks were a pain to order. The free breakfast was nice but not great. The free wiki was good, but inconvenient due to the daily passwords (written in capitals but used in lower case). The pool was good if not crowded, when it was open (9-6). You have to walk through the parking garage to get to the pool or beach. Confirmed reservations were not honored until the third day. The initial room was located over the trash dump and therefore the balcony was undesirable to sit on. The originally reserved room was good, with a good view, but noisy due to its facing the nearby airport. The concierge was good and informative, when they were on duty (9-5). Taxi rides were very good and readily available. Overall, not a 3-star hotel, especially since they'll try to sell you a timeshare while you're there. Run down and dated hotel and hall ways, but nice rooms.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We ate at several of the local restaurants while at ESJ Towers, but the closest - a Chili's - turned out to be the best and most consistent food.

The hotel was VERY CLEAN and the people were very kind and helpful to tell up where to visit and good places to to dine. I recommend the hotel to anyone. I think it's also a great place to stay with children.
