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.

Would not stay here again

Our room is next to on going construction building next door. The workers starts at 7AM on Saturday morning! We woke up and came downstair to complain. They didn't have any available room so we were stuck with the loud noise for another night! There are mosquito inside the room. I went hiking in the jungle without any bites, but I got several bites inside my room. Killed one of the mosquito, there is at least one more!

Good value, location in Isla Verde area

older, renovated hotel a block from the beach in Isla Verde. Stayed 2 nights in a ground floor poolside room. Bed and room was fine - Shower and toilet area obviously old and dingy. Popular with locals but can be noisy. Wedding celebration went on til 3 am on a Sat. Kids party held on Sun generated a lot of noise and loud music around the pool for 6 hours. Staff was unsympathetic to my complaints with the noise. Good coffee place in the lobby. Close to the airport, Embassy Suites casino, local restaurants and quick markets. Easy walk to the beach. Saw a few airline crew staying there. Would probably stay in the tower section rather than the poolside section if I went again.

Cab to airport is $20 one way. Car rentals are available there but they impose a daily parking fee even if you rent a car from them. Most hotels there do this. Cabs and parking are expensive in San Juan. Bus is cheap but extremely slow and unreliable schedule.

I could only take cold showers in Puerto Rico...

This is not a four star hotel. The room was small and dingy with a miserable bed and the water never got warm.

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.

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.
