Had a lovely stay here! Right on the reef, great access to snorkeling, and we saw whales spouting and breaching! Wonderful public deck affords great views over the reef with easy quick access to the beach. We had a little kitchen (well equipped) and a nicely stocked in-room library. Comfy bed, too. A light early morning rain triggered coqui frog... More

The location is great, the rooms are neat, the people are cool, and the deck serves for sunsets drinks and sunrise coffee. Good even if you don't surf or kite sail, great to just hang out and watch. We've stayed here several times during the winter and will continue to do so.

Once you go there, you'll keep coming back! Rooms are great - super clean, spacious rooms, comfy beds, and best of all, the location. Even if staying in one of the non ocean view rooms, you can just go out the room and access the beach and hotels deck from inside the property. Really nice staff and great prices! Always... More

The view was amazing, we saw whales in January, seabirds, surfers and kite surfers. The unit was spacious with a full size kitchen and WiFi and a private beach entry. The bed was comfortable. The living room area had plenty of seating and satellite TV. They have a washer/dryer, which is great for those long stays. Jocelyn was always there... More

Fantastic ocean front location, great snorkeling, surfing and kite surfing. Convenient location for day surf trips to Jobos Beach, Rincon and the waterfalls. Outdoor space was spectacular, day and night. Well appointed kitchen and family room, plus two air conditioned bedrooms and bathroom with shower. Quick walk to Ola Lola's for a beverage, dinner and meet others. Everyone friendly and... More

Great ocean front lodging in a warm tropical climate for a good price. The ocean can be a bit rough and dangerous out front unless you are an experienced water person. Love the sound of coquis at night overall one of my favorite spots on earth so far :)

We stayed in the Villa Quiñones (Q3) for almost a week in November and got to enjoy an almost empty beach. We took long walks along the beach, played golf at the nearby golf course (Punta Borinquen Golf Club), swam in the warm ocean and just enjoyed the view from our balcony! The kitchen in the apartment was fully equipped... More

This place us a gem hidden in Isabela. I have stayed at another place near by (Villa Montaña) and this is the best so far. It was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. We arrived in the middle of the night and everything was on point. The room was practically an apartment with all amenities and on... More

Puerto Rico was the destination for our first trip to the Caribbean and once there we stayed at Villa Tropical for ten days. It wasn't enough. All the ocean-side units were lovely and vary little in their comforts or views. You really can't go wrong. The warm breeze kept any bugs away and the incredibly warm water was impossible to...

We had a wonderful time relaxing at this property. The view from our apartment was breathtaking with wonderful sunsets. We usually ordered food to go and ate it at the apartment or we simply cooked something at the grill as we did not want to leave the property. There are not many restaurants nearby but most of them are good... More
