And I don't just mean 70's style, I mean a WHOLE Hotel from the 70's, furniture, decor, lights, rooms, doors and carpet.
It's clean (I had a mop, broom and bucket inside my closet, true story), it's dark (in every meaning), It has a free parking space (almost nothing has free of charge parking space in Puerto Rico), It has big rooms (plenty of old space), It doesn't have free WIFI (in case you need it). It has hard to get a view to the Ocean (since most of the rooms are facing sideways not Ocean front). Staff is helpful and nice (as in all Puerto Rico), can't complain there.
Funny story, in my floor corridor there was a room with a gated door. It's funny now. It was very creepy then.
Final line, this place could be easily use for a Quentin Tarantino 70's kitsch movie. Really.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ESJ Towers was originally opened in 1975, offering 450 rooms which range from studios to three bedrooms, all providing kitchenettes or full kitchens & laundry facilities in select apartments, making them the largest sized accommodations in the area. It has been an iconic property on the beautiful Isla Verde Beach for 40 years, functioning as a mix of hotel and timeshare resort, with many owners coming to ESJ since the beginning. Starting in June of 2015, ESJ embarked on an ambitious rebranding and renovation of the property to the new ESJ Azul. This included extensive renovation of the lobby, all hallways, restaurant, and the addition of a newbar/lounge, gameroom, and sales center. Already blessed with one of the best locations on the beach in the San Juan area, the new ESJ Azul is truly an amazing testament to good service, spacious and comfortable rooms, and a legacy of excellence that is more apparent than ever. ... more less
