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

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
