Winter vacation

This hotel was located on a really nice beach and very close to the airport. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. They are in the middle of some renovations on the breakfast room, but this was not a problem. It is really close to a lot of nice restaurants. It was handy having a parking garage for our rental car. The breakfast was simple but good. Some hot options, and a waffle maker. The staff was very attentive during breakfast. You get a free drink from the bar every night! This was a plus! We were surprised that they lock the gates and you can't access the beach after 6:00 p.m. All the hotels in the area did the same thing for security reasons. It seemed perfectly safe to walk to main street restaurants at night though. Be aware if you rent a car that traffic on weekdays is horrible! There are traffic jams every night because of the amount of cars coming and going from the city. Allow a lot of extra time if you need to be somewhere at a certain time!

Nice beach, close to airport, noise NOT a problem, basic rooms

Overall it is a good value. The location is great and it is an impressive building on the outside and lobby but the rooms feel pretty basic. The hallways smell very musty, some of the rooms also smelled a bit but others did not. It is currently being remodeled so there were some inconveniences, when it is done it should be nicer but the rooms will probably still feel pretty basic. In our group of 4 rooms 2 were already remodeled. Each had 2 double beds, little kitchenette and older bathroom. Please know that one side faces the beach and the other side faces a bay over a city view. Of the 4 rooms mine was the only one to face the beach and the others were disappointed but we were very happy. We found a fastfood restaurant called Los Gorditos a couple of blocks west where I was shocked at how good the steaks were for about $11

This is a great place to stay for any occasion.

Overall the hotel met all our expectations. We would have liked wifi access in our rooms but not a big deal since we were able to access in the lobby. Iphone did not work well without wifi access, though samsung worked well. The daily breakfast was excellent and we thought the complimentary daily drinks were a nice touch. We will definitely return.

Great getaway

This hotel is absolutely worth it's valued price. Our room was very nicely organized and clean. We had a kitchen with a refrigerator, stove and microwave. We also had a small table, full size mirror, television and even a balcony with views of the beach. The staff was friendly and responded to all of our requests. We received free breakfast and a complimentary cocktail for every day we were there. The pool had a lifeguard on duty and the fitness center even had a sauna. We had exceptionally easy access to the beach, which not to mention was crystal clear. Overall, this is a perfect hotel for those who are on a tight budget but want to experience Puerto Rico for the first time and have a great time.

Awesome trip for two.

My girlfriend and i just stayed with ESJ Towers for eight days. We deffinitley chose this place because of its free gated parking and free breakfast. You also get two free drinks a day and you really cannot beat the location..its right on the beach.The rooms need some work but they keep them clean, and they have hot water and a kitchenet. You really cannot beat it for the price.

Great Location

I went on my first trip by my self and the staff made me feel at home. They were there to answer all my question and yet gave me space to roam about. I felt at home there. The beach was AWESOME all i had to do was take the elevator downstairs and swipe my room key to allow me access to the beach. Love the security of having to use my key.
