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.

  • 2 restaurants: Happy Apple and Pool Bar and Kiosk

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. Try out local pastimes like surfing and snorkeling - the Isla Verde Reef Marine Reserve is full of dazzling corals - or take the cultured route and enjoy the local craftsmanship at the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico. Hungry travelers will find meals to satisfy every taste at the nearby Chili's, Platos and La Piccola Fontana.
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.

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.

OK hotel

This is a good hotel for families on a budget. Great location, reasonable rates and OK accommodations. Not recommended if you're an adult traveller or opposed to a hotel that hasn't been renovated since the 70's. We ended up moving to another hotel halfway through our stay.

Wonderful trip!

We loved this hotel and the staff! There was always a friendly person to help us! The breakfast had a lot of variety- warm and cold food. The beach was beautiful and the beach was sandy and the water was wonderful for swimming! We just wished that the pool and beach were open later and we would have liked more lunch options at the hotel. (The grilled lunch on the beach was wonderful, but the line was tooooo long!

family trip

location is great, the view from the balcony breathtaking Lots of food options right outside of a hotel.next door is casino,best club in town and great beach.Hotel breakfast is great,pool is clean and staff was friendly. Clean towels was provided anytime we needed them. One little disappointment we run in too is that pool was close early as access to the beach .But there is short walk after hour. Safe ,quiet beach at night where you can enjoy the sunset. There is easy way to get to Old Sun Juan By bus or taxi.Over all everything was great.

A little dated on the decor, but excellent location!

Free parking, free breakfast, awesome staff and great location! The beach was beautiful and is located near various restaurants and convenience stores. Decor/finishes are dated, reminded me of Miami Vice/ the Godfather days (I didn't mind it!), staff/ service more than makes up for it. Good for families!

Mom & Young Daughters

I travel alone often with my young daughters.... We had a great time at this hotel & felt safe. Nothing fancy, but Perfect for our vacation needs. Staff was excellent, breakfast was great, views of the ocean were awesome. The location to beach couldn't be easier, just steps away. The location to walgreens, dinner, airport, bus & a beach chair literally couldn't be better. If your looking for cocktails served to you on the beach this isn't your hotel. If your looking for an excellent value with a great pool... ESJ will be great.

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.
