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.

Located a mile from the airport but away from the noise and only a short taxi ride away. The Verdanza Hotel is steps away from a bus stop. Visit our concierge desk for information on routes and itineraries. In addition to a bus stop across the street and a car rental office on the property, a trolley service courtesy of the Municipality of Carolina takes guests around and about the Isla Verde area. Called SiTrac, the distinctive red trolley bus completes its route every 25 minutes from 6 am to 5 pm. Taxis are also easily available at the hotel, day and night.
The Verdanza Hotel, Carolina enjoys a superb location in the heart of Isla Verde, Puerto Rico only steps away from one of the Caribbean's liveliest white sand beaches and other great area attractions. At night, Isla Verde comes alive with a wide range of nightlife choices, from live entertainment, to dance clubs, casinos, and restaurants.

good value!

First floor rooms by the pool are not the best; high traffic, noise, and bathrooms are very small. I requested a change and it was perfect. The location is great (nearby the airport, restaurants and casinos). Plus a taxi to San Juan/Condado is a 15 mins ride! The staff was great!!

The Embassy, San Juan, and Intercontinental are minutes away walking. They tend to have great activities during the weekend (live music and dancing)... stay at Verdanza, enjoy the activities and save $$$.

Weekend Getaway

This hotel is in the center of it all. A quick ride from the airport. Family oriented hotel. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Rooms are comfortable. Decor of the the hotel was very very nice. Three restaurants, a small coffee counter and a bar right in the hotel. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family because it is very reasonable and all the amentities are at your fingertips. If you walk down the block there is MarketPlace to purchase bottles of wine or snacks for the pool.

A must -- MI CASITA Spanish Restaurant is a right down the block. They have authentic spanish food and the prices are reasonable. There is a Subways, Burger King, Ponderosa, Churchs chicken in the same shopping center if you dont want to spend alot of money on food.

Nice stay at Verdanza

Nice hotel. Nice location. Clean rooms and very friendly service. Wish they would add some more entertainment options like a band or something to make it a bit more lively. Managers cocktail hour was great. Arnaldo in the 80/20 restaurant was very friendly and provided great service.

A Place to Sleep

The hotel was clean, but it wasn't spectacular. It was only 5 minutes from the airport and walking distance to the beach, so it was an overall win. There is nothing fancy about it. The staff is very nice. The WiFi is iffy. For the price I would stay again, but would seek other options first.

I booked this trip for my daughters (7 & 15yrs) and myself and we had the best time ever! The hotel was perfectly located, food & beach all within a one block radius. Perfect! The room was clean and the staff was great!

Isla Verde is a good place to stay with kids as there is a wide variety of places to eat. There's "known" fast food places as well as local food and chain restaurant favorites such as Chili's & Outback

Verdanza stay

I gave this hotel four stars because of its beauty, varied restaurants within the hotel, close proximity to the airport and the amenities. Did not feel that special something/welcome from the staff at the front desk. The room's rug needed to be replaced because it was stained and the base and corners of walls were maybe damaged by water but was definitely in need of repair. The room was freezing even though I turned off the AC, didn't think that was possible since I was in the Caribbean. If provided a better room and staff that realizes the importance of hospitality to every customer, I would recommend to a friend.

Less than 10 minutes drive to the airport and a taxi is always readily available across the street. (Always have small bills in case the driver claims he doesn't have change to provide you).

Should be considered a upscale Motel not a "Hotel"

The "Hotel" was ok, nothing special. The rooms set-up looks a bit like a motel but the rooms are a better looking. Pool is very nice including the kids pool. The sports restaurant is very nice and the guys are very nice. The only problem I would say I had was the parking which I can't understand. Hotel guest as well as guest who dine pay $10 plus per day cash but if you walk in from outside to dine or the private parties they waive the parking.

Beautiful Hotel and Lobby on the Outside!

This hotel was beautiful on the outside. Updated colorful lobby. Restaurants were nice, butbof course, expensive. Eighty 20 bistro was my favorite. Their breakfast was good. We stayed in the poolside room and there was construction going on right outside our entrance door which didn't make for a good impression. The balcony and pool side view was excellent so I guess it made it for the outside entrance being more like a motel, (on the outside). The room was pretty average and make sure you keep track of your pool towels or cards. If either is not returned, the hotel will charge $25 a piece. Hotel staff was friendly and welcoming and spoke English..

The tours offered at the hotel are very expensive. We used an independent tour company, yatumba.com that was much more inexpensive and a much greater value.
