This experience on the beach in a fully outfitted, comfortable, bright and clean apartment can't be beat. ON THE BEACH! Listening to the SURF! Our accommodations are clean, attractive, and easy to maintain (with full kitchen, one bedroom, full bath, etc.). Plus owner Mike is good peeps: environmentally sensitive, uber-friendly, and responsive to any need. I am planning to come... More

We have been going to Puerto Rico for 10 years and have always stayed here. We did stay somewhere else one year and it just wasn't the same. We always stay in R-1 which is a one bedroom oceanfront villa. Sadly it is becoming a 3 bedroom villa. We have fond memories at this wonderful place. R-1 is very special... More

We stayed for a weekend at a one bedroom apt on the second floor. I had to arrive very late and had to call the emergency # because I got lost and the owner was very nice and guided me to the correct bldg on the phone! The balcony was shared and the neighbors were nice quiet people. The view... More

We recently attended wedding on the beach at Shacks. We had a great time, with members of the wedding party spread throughout several properties starting at Villa Tropical and heading towards the east. The apartments at Villa Tropical were very nice, clean and well maintained. The property was quiet and had parking for our rental cars. The owners were very... More

We where going to a family event and needed to stay overnight, so we stayed here for 2 nights. The room was comfortable and clean, felt like my grandma's. However, they don't have housekeeping unless you pay for the service. The location is a bit tricky to find but once you do is just great and the beach is one... More

We recently had our wedding in Isabela and had all of our guests (60 people!) stay in apartments at Villa Tropical. I was a little nervous having all of our friends and family stay at a place I had never seen in person, but my concerns were laid to rest the second I saw the apartments and of course, the... More

The apartments are cute, cozy, just in front of the beach. It's a place where you can escape from everything and have your private space to relax. The beach is great for snorkeling and scuba diving. The area is really safe too. It has a great location, 5 min away (driving) to Jobos, supermarkets, restaurants, everything. Defenitely I would stay... More

We just stayed at villa tropical in Q5 and it worked out great.. Q5 is a small non ocean front unit but it was clean and nice. It has a nice kitchen and bathroom, the parking spots are right there (nice for loading and unloading luggage or what ever) . Even though it was non ocean front, it was just... More

I have been to Puerto Rico before for the excellent surf but until now have not been fortunate enough to stay at Villa Tropical. We recently spent three nights in the Filisha F2 which was ideal for our family of five. The hospitality that Trevor, Jennifer, and the rest of the staff showed us went above and beyond our expectations.... More

I stayed in Room # M1 on the ground floor, you cannot get any closer to beach, the sound of the waves crashing is very relaxing, the view is beautiful. Myself and my wife stayed for 5 nights, wished it was longer! A great location, off the beaten track, I think the best beaches in Puerto Rico! and I have... More
