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

Villa Tropical Isabela Puerto Rico, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude for such a wonderful stay at Villa Tropical in Isabela Puerto Rico. I’m pleased to say that it’s still the best kept secret in the Caribbean. The staff was courteous, knowledgeable of the area. The rooms… OMG! Five star quality accommodations; clean, modern, luxurious and private apartments.... 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

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to visit this location for many years and it just keeps getting better and better. Trevor and his staff are constantly maintaining and up-grading the property. This year they installed two new super quiet air conditioners and a new, much larger refrigerator. Much to my delight, we rarely use A/C as it... More

Stayed in M-3 first week of March 2014. Arrived before dawn from Orlando, only 15 minutes from the airport. Got in the condo before the sun came up . Excellent layout with a very large second floor wood deck virtually right on the perfect beach. Fully equipped kitchen, was excellent. Tremendous views of the ocean, beach and sunset. Very good...

My husband and I stayed in M2 in February. The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and had a clear view of the water. We found it very quiet and relaxing. You do have to share a patio with M1, but did not find it too invasive. My only complaint (besides having to leave) was that we did not have hot water... More

After 16 years, I was finally able to make it back to Puerto Rico - and I knew I wanted to spend time on the west side of the island. I didn't want to be right in town but close enough to everything to get around easily - found Villa Tropical while searching on TripAdvisor and thanks to the great... More

Due to the winter storms in New York, our flight was cancelled and we managed a later flight arriving a day late. Trevor the owner was completely calm and accommodating for our last minute changes. He ensured we had access straight away to a room when we arrived and was unfailingly helpful throughout our stay. We stayed in apartment B1... More
