What can you say about a place that makes you feel as though you're home - but shifted to paradise? That's what my stay at Villa Tropical was like. I spent 11 nights here for a combination vacation and business trip and it was absolutely PERFECT. I had a one bedroom apartment in the Q building that made me feel... More

Absolutely great place to stay. The building and room exceeded expectations for the rate. We have lived in PR and vacation here off and on now. This is our first stay at VT and really pleased with the room, the view and the staff. It's nice to stay at a place that makes everything easy for you. Beach chairs and... More

Front office and owners were attentive with your needs and taking care of them, also with supplying maps and giving suggestions on attractions around the island.Phone GPS worked pretty good but did have some recalculating going on so direction maps from office helped alot. Special Thanks... More

The apartment fronts the ocean with a perfect view of sunsets. The 2-bedroom unit we rented was okay for the price, though somewhat dated. The water right in front of the unit is rough, however, there is a small area to swim within 100 yards.

Stunning view. Right on the water. Hammocks on porches for relaxing. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Excellent snorkeling right at your front door. Kitchen for cooking. Parking is a little tight. I recommend staying here instead of a hotel. BBQ is available for grilling. Minutes from Aguadilla and Ramey.

I almost don't want to write a review because I don't want to many people to find out about this place. After staying at a dump somewhere else, we decided to leave our condo and find somewhere else that we could enjoy the rest of our vacation. My family is SO glad we did. Villa Tropical made our vacation one... More

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The accommodations are right on the beach and the owners and managers of the property make it a point make sure you are safe and comfortable. The rooms are nice, tv and a fully functioning kitchen. great outdoor areas to cook and lounge about.

My wife and two of our friends read about the kiteboarding at Shacks beach so we looked for a condo to share right on the water. We're frugal travelers and found many of the 2 bedroom units available at Villa Tropical to be in our price range. Despite the sparse inside photos of the units, based on the recommendation of...

I was surprised. If you... More

We spent our honeymoon in PR and the second half of our trip at Villa Tropical. This place was great and even exceeded our high expectations based off the reviews we read before our trip. The apartments are clean and convenient. They have everything you will need. The location is phenomenal. It is well worth it to get an apartment... More
