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.

A shaded veranda allows clients to sit outdoors as the sunset gives way to the nightlife Isla Verde, Puerto Rico.

Good Value, Good Location

Overall good experience. Older rooms in the old hotel building need updating (to put it kindly), but tower rooms are clean, new, and comfortable. Staff is excellent. Helpful, friendly, accommodating. We had a problem at check-in, but staff were helpful, and all was resolved. We were also comped breakfast at the buffet. Nice touch. Close to Old San Juan (we rented a car - 8 minute drive), 2 blocks from the beach, and plenty of necessities nearby (cheap food on the go, gas stations, etc.). Overall a good, clean, pleasant place to stay if you don't mind traveling a few minutes back and forth between your hotel and Old San Juan.

An Affordable, Well-Located Hotel, but Not Four Stars

The Verdanza Hotel is an affordable hotel with a bit of external charm, but by no means a four-star hotel. Located a 5 minute walk from Carolina beach and a 5 minute drive from the airport, the hotel is certainly convenient. But, put simply, it's not that nice. The rooms are fairly small and the furniture is dated--what's worse, the room had not been cleaned when we checked in (the toilet bowl was...um...full when we arrived). We were told we had an "Executive Club" room with an ocean view; the room lacked a desk for any executive to work in and the room faced the lagoon and the airport, not the beach. The continental breakfast is perfunctory, as is the gym. There are a number of restaurant options, which looked ok, but we didn't dine there so cannot speak first-hand. I wouldn't say my fiancee and I regret staying at the Verdanza; the rate couldn't be beat and, if you plan to stay in the Isla Verde area, the location is ideal as a jumping off point. But temper your expectations accordingly.

Great for staying before and after a cruise

The location is great, close to the airport, and a short cab ride to Old San Juan and the cruise ship port. It only takes 5 mins. to walk to a wonderful ocean beach. There are 3 restaurants on site that are great. The staff is wonderful also, they are friendly and very accommodating . We've stay at the Verdanza 7 years now and will go back whenever visiting Puerto Rico.

If you don't mind the huge roaches and sticky floor

The room wasn't clean, most o the towels weren't stained, and the bed was unbelievably uncomfortable. My friend switched her room about 9 times!!! before switching holes to the Embassy net door!! I didn't have the energy for that, but I'll never go back there there again!!!!

Nice hotel, especially for the price

The pool was nice, there were 5 restaurant options, a very nice lobby and staff. Parking was $10 a day. The downsides were an old and small bathroom, no elevator in the 3 story tower of the hotel (there are 2 towers, ask for one with an elevator), and the shower handle didn't adjust the temperature properly

Verdant a stay

The location is the best, walking distance to the beach, supermarket and great restaurants. Staff is great the bistro has good chicken and rice and the vino.... Outstanding. Though I did have issues with one of the rooms I stayed in, this is not the forum to air the issues. This is an older hotel but still a pretty nice hotel.

Great hotel

This was a very nice hotel to stay at and I would definitely recommend. Quite a few restaurants on site. Great continental breakfast. Pool was very nice. Staff was accommodating and quite pleasant. The workout facility had a great view and you could walk out and take pictures from the top floor. I enjoyed the spacious layout of the room, especially the bathroom area. It makes it a lot easier for two people to get ready to go out at the same time.

It's become a favorite of ours in San Juan

Right next to the airport in the Isla Verde beach area of San Juan, the Verdanza is an excellent value. Rooms are not large but they are clean. The grounds are immaculately kept and the restaurants are uniformly very good. Staff is well trained and helpful. As long as they keep it up, I will keep coming back.

SanJuan getway

4 night stay at the Verdanza was a pleasant one overall. Hotel is pretty nice, rooms could use a little maintence if your the traveler that would complain about odd screws holding a soap dish up in the shower or a stain on the carpet or a tear in a sheet you might be disappointed. However we were able to deal with these small things for the positives. Beginning with the staff, very friendly all smiling holding doors open and just very helpful. Location is great, 1 block to the Beach and to Isla verdes strip with restaurants and some bars 15 min cab ride west to Old San Juan. Yes I would stay here again.
