Seriously I studied these reviews like a hawk before I left for vacation...listen up people, I speak the truth...change your reservations immediately...it was just terrible. 4 Stars?1 ummm...yeah I dont think so.
The lobby is stunning, a real throwback to 1940's Waldorf Astoria style, just gorgeous...unfortunately you cant sleep in the lobby. We had reserved one of the nicest rooms at the hotel...The Ocean Lanais, right on the ocean. The room was way below standard, it smelled like feet, everything was rusted and the sound of crazed children swimming in the pool at all hours of the night. I did get an opportunity to duck my head in some of the other rooms...yikes! We stayed one night and packed our bags. We ended up at Caribe Hilton...very nice and clean and wait staff that actually cares! If we had to do it all over again we would have stayed in Old San Juan...just beautiful...stay at the hotel El Convento...trust me!
This was my first visit to Puerto Rico, I do plan on going back just not to Isla Verde...it was spooky, dirty, and really gross. The beaches were nasty...a total city beach.
