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

A friend told us about Villa Tropical and we're glad we chose to stay. Stayed in M4 which is beautiful. The layout is a little funky but the great patio, huge patio doors and view of the ocean made up for the bathroom being by the kitchen. I'm glad I wasn't walking around naked because the entrance for M3 which... More

First of all, Trevor and his staff cannot be beat! They were more than accommodating for our group of 10. We saw so many beautiful fish snorkeling! We supported bakeries, Abierto's grocery store, bought freshly caught lobster right on Shacks Beach, and enjoyed beach life to the max. This was our third trip here and we'll be back again! Adios...

We traveled to multiple parts of Puerto Rico and stayed here for 2 nights. The beach is amazing. Very pleased. We were able to snorkel with our 9 year old in very clean and beautiful water. Multiple fish and coral and a lot of rocks. Very friendly staff. Very informative about the area given in a handbook in the condo.... More

My wife and our three children just returned from an 8-day stay at Villa Tropical. From start to finish, the property and it's surroundings exceeded our expectations. The beaches were perfect for our children to play on and to snorkel. The villa we stayed in was on the beach,spacious and clean. The restaurant down the street, Ola Lola's, which is... More
