My wife and I stayed at Villa Tropical for a four nights before a friend of ours got married across the way at Villa Montaña. Villa Tropical is probably the best place to stay in the Isabela and Aguadilla area of Puerto Rico due to the price, quality of the rooms, and location to probably the second best beach in... More

We rented two apartments on Shacks Beach through Jennifer and Trevor in April 2015. Villa Filisha was perfect for our group of 9 people. The location is amazing, steps from the ocean and really what more do you need? The apartments are modest in furnishings and were very clean. Shacks Beach is quiet however, the water is rough so if... More

We have been to Villa lTropical numerous times and have always had a very enjoyable stay. Trevor and Jennifer are always friendly hosts and the ocean front apartments overlook miles of private beaches. If you are good at kicking back and relaxing this is the place for you. Very different from a busy all inclusive resort. We hope this corner... More

We just returned from Puerto Rico last night and hated to leave our week in paradise. We stayed in Vla Quiñones ("Q"). Our first night was in M1 because M4 was not available. Both apartments were great with amazing views but we preferred the 3rd floor view w/ the warm breezes and wonderful view of the blue hole. Trevor and... More

As other reviews have stated, I hesitated to share and want to keep this gem to myself but Villa Tropical deserves the praise. We just returned from our stay in B2, a two bedroom, second level apartment with the very best view of the "Blue Hole" and swimming area at Shacks Beach. B2 is very rustic but clean and functional.... More

We stayed in OB2 &OB3, girls getaway. Perfect for families with small children. The beds are comfortable and the a/c works well with fans to help with the heat. Although we made the best of it there were a few things that would have made my stay even better. The sofas gad rhe springs sticking out so you could not... More

i promise, I am NOT exaggerating! Absolutely perfect! We have stayed in at least 5 other places in Puerto Rico between rincon and Isabela. Villa tropical is the MOST professional and accommodating place we have ever stayed. Also the cleanest and most equipped. We were in ocean blue 3 and really enjoyed the amenities! We were a family of 4,... More

Okay I am hesitant to tell people how nice Villa trop is for fear of invasion. Playa shacks is a beautiful spot, a famous kiteboarding and surf spot with more undeveloped beach around it than any place in Caribbean/Atlantic. V.T. has units that vary widely in price depending on the view, size and amenities but we have stayed in three... More

This was our first time staying right on the beach, and Villa Tropical did not disappoint. The beach is clean and almost empty despite 80 degree daytime weather in January. We watched the stars late into the night and saw maybe half a dozen people pass by total. The stars were incredible and we saw several shooting stars, too. The... More

There isn't a better beach in the planet. The people at Villa Tropical are amazing to deal with. I wouldn't stay at any other place in Puerto Rico. Close to a couple nice restaurants and just down the hill from the grocery store. You really never need to travel far to get any provisions and they now offer most things... More
