Stayed her for a girls trip with my besties and cousin and as you can imagine with 4 girls in one room toiletries disappear very quickly. Called front desk to get replacements and they said they couldn't bring us toilet paper because we're apart of timeshare and directed us to the fitness club. Got to the fitness club and asked...

We stayed for a couple of nights. The beach access and pool look decent. The pool I might add was just too crowded. There is a place called Mano a Mano which is the local pub / restaurant. Not bad either, especially when you get a couple of beers per day as a guest. Breakfast is not reccomended. Very poor,... More

The location is phenomenal- beach on one side, airport on the other. But the rooms are dated, the corridors dark and musty, no air conditioning in the lobby ( a challenge when you arrive and your rooms are not ready even though it was past check in time). Way to the beach is convoluted, goes through the parking garage, and... More

I did not enjoy my stay at the ESJ Towers. The hotel did let me check-in early so I though I was off to a good start. I booked a king size bed but got two full size beds. When I called the front desk I was advised that they did not have any king size available and would need... More

Good: - Air Conditioner worked beautifully - Great water pressure - Bed extremely comfortable Cons: - Outdated look - Stained carpet and furniture - Hallways smelled like a hospital - No WiFi in the rooms We stood here using a timeshare. We were VERY disappointed in our stay. After checking in, the hallways and rooms looked something out of the... More

.I recently stayed at ESJ Towers on a trip to San Juan and can say I would not recommend or stay at this hotel again. Besides the outdated look and feel several others have commented on I found there is a lack of safety. The smoke detector in my room was disabled (actually removed) and the rooms are equipped with...

This is a hotel/condo/timeshare If you go as a hotel guest you get all the bells and whistles of a guest. If you rent a condo/timeshare you take care of yourself. I had to make that clear so those that rent from someone don't cry they didn't get free Wi-Fi, towels etc. As a hotel guest, for the price is... More

I rented with Chana Cohan and it was the biggest mistake i have made as of yet. The Three bedroom apt i rented was something straight out of the eighty's. If you want to go to great grandma's house then this is the place for you. They only supplied 1 roll of bathroom tissue, 1 remote control for 2 t.v's,... More

My family and I have been staying at ESJ for years and always enjoy our stay. Where else can you check into a hotel and hit the beach, pool, restaurants or casinos 5 minutes from the airport? The staff are friendly yet efficient and the restaurant serves tasty breakfasts and lunches. There is also a cute bar. Plenty of stuff... More
