It was very clean, the room had A/C and the kitchen had everything to cook, a little freadge, stoove with oven, plates, cups, coffee machine, curtlery, microwave, pots, pans, everything. 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

This place is awesome, the view, the room we stayed, the beach, everything is spectacular and awesome, I highly truly recommend it.... and the places to eat around the place are awesome... in the location we were you could hear the ocean from every place. The staff very friendly and helpful. The sunset from the... More

I recently stayed at Villa Tropical for work and I must take the time to let everyone know about my wonderful experiences. I first stayed at a name brand hotel in the near and was not pleased, this really put off Puerto Rico to me. A colleague suggested I check out Villa Tropical, which I did, and am I glad... More

UPDATE: I had posted this review earlier with a small caveat about staying in 1B. The owner has contacted me and let me know that owners of the house next door with the loud barking dogs have moved! So staying in 1B should be great! My wife and I stayed at Villa Tropical for a four nights before a friend... More

We are coming to Villa Tropical for over 20 years. It is a great place to stay. The beach is nice and quiet and offers from snorkeling to diving, from kite surfing to wind surfing all possibilities. Attached a video what you can expect http://youtu.be/_O4keGzqfds

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
