“Great hotel close to airport!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We stayed here for one night before heading farther out on the island. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the airport, and it ended up being very close indeed. The staff was very helpful upon arrival, and check in smooth and quick. The rooms were large and clean, and very comfortable. The grounds and pool are also very clean and inviting. This was a great choice for us to start our vacation off on the right foot, and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed two nights at this hotel - overall a good experience. Nice lobby, average room.
Pluses - great Asian restaurant on-site, nice wine bar which is underutilized, fresh juice and great coffee in the lobby cafe, pool, splash area for kids, attentive staff at front desk, restaurants and parking, and good location close to beach and restaurants.
Minuses- room wasn't serviced at all even though we saw many carts in hallway all day, hallways were freshly painted but could use new carpet and artwork or something as little depressing. Staff at bistro 80/20 overworked. One guy was serving pool area, drinks and the bistro and he was literally running...it took too long to eat there so we left and this is an aspect that the hotel is losing customers on. Room service breakfast late and wrong.

My Wife and I decided to have a Good Friday & Easter weekend vacation not far off somewhere away from home so we decided to try the Verdanza Hotel. I had purchased the Club Hotel membership from the Verdanza hotel and decide to use it for this particular weekend. The Hotel was very clean And fresh, the romos are not too shabby but clean and confortable. The pool área is very nice and the hotel staff is very helpful and very polite.

Room Tip: Get a room in the adjacent Club Members building for a more private stay.

This is well kept hotel that provides a great base for easy access to San Juan and the island. Everything you need can be found conveniently close by. The in-house restaurants have quality foods and a pleasant variety of atmospheres. The employees are friendly and helpful in answering questions or explaining what is available. My room was very comfortable with a good quality bed.
The only shortcoming I noted was the valet parking service. The valet should great you at the car and assist with bags, etc.
I will definitely stay here again. An excellent choice for the dollar.

We booked this trip thru Travelocity. The price was really good for 3 nights and 4 whole days. When we got there the room was not ready, but my husband who has worked in hospitality spoke with the guy in the front desk and we got an awesome room on the first floor in front of the pool. Our stay was awesome and all of the staff were awesome. We booked our tours in the front tour desk and the lady was the nicest and most helpful person ever. Definitely would recommend this place. The beach was only a block away.

Room Tip: I think that any room in this hotel would be fine. The ones right in front of the pool were really...

We recently stayed at the Verdanza for 4 nights prior to embarking a cruise out of San Juan. We had booked the hotel on Orbitz and paid $170/night for an executive club level room on the 8th floor. The club rooms include breakfast each morning (cereal, juice, danish, coffee and tea, and fruit), internet access and each room has a balcony (the only rooms in the hotel to have balconies). The hotel is not beach front, and there are 2 possible views- toward the ocean or toward the lagoon (city view). We were assigned a lagoon view room – probably because we booked through Orbitz and not direct. The rooms featuring partial ocean view have a view toward the ocean which is through other buildings, and on the lower floors you may not be able to see the ocean at all. The hotel has a nice large pool, a workout room a Jacuzzi, a private picnic/party area and a laundry room although with only 1 washer and dryer. There is secured on-site parking for $10/night.
Upon check-in we were greeted pleasantly by the staff and given a welcome fruit ice. Everyone we encountered was very pleasant and helpful. Even when the staff was quite busy- there was a convention at the hotel during part of our stay- they would go out of their way to replace your towels, or deal with any issues in the room that needed attention.
The rooms themselves are clean and well furnished although not overly large. There was plenty of storage space. There was a coffee maker, mini-fridge, safe and ironing board. The housekeeping service was efficient and did a good job keeping everything stocked and refilled our coffee supply daily. Air conditioning worked well.
The only problems we encountered were technical- the safe failed to operate 3 separate times and engineering had to come and work on it (which consisted of banging on the control unit) until it functioned, and we went through 3 television remote controls until we got one that worked.
There are 4 restaurants on site- a Chinese restaurant that also serves sushi, a tapas bar, the 80/20 Bistro which serves a little of everything and a sports bar. We found all of the restaurants to be on the high end of the price scale when compared to other offerings in the area and for type of food served. We did eat at 80/20 Bistro and had a nice meal.
The location of this hotel is very good as it is 10 minutes from the airport (although you do not hear airport noise) and a taxi is $10. It is also a 5 minute walk down a quiet street to the Isla Verde beach or 10 minutes walk to Carolina beach. There is a Walgreens 10 minutes walk away on Isla Verde Avenue and a Pueblo grocery store 5 minutes away as well.
This hotel was a very good value and offered excellent amenities and while it was not on the beach was close enough for our needs.

Room Tip: pay extra to get on the eighth floor
