My wife and I enjoyed the Villa Tropical last winter so much that we returned for a week this past January. We love the Villa and all of the nice people who work there including Trevor the owner and Cookie the office manager. We stayed in Q1 for three nights and then moved over to last year's favorite, R1 with a substantial wrap around neck about 12 feet above the beach and stone's throw from the Blue Hole, a swimming area protected from the wild and beautiful Atlantic surf by an extensive coral reef. We have grown especially fond of this area of Puerto Rico, the Northwest corner between Aguadilla and Isabela for the beautiful nearly deserted beaches with endless fabulous shells, very low volume of tourism, lush landscape, neat seaside neighborhood, very friendly people, nearby Economarket, and the constant music of the ocean. For inexpensive gourmet meals, with enough vegetarian selections and incredible desserts, we recommend the nearby Cucina Creativa where we went for dinner each night it was open. We also recommend a visit to the incredible bamboo artist a short walk from the villa. Finally, the Villa offers a range of amenities and prices. We are economy travelers and chose the more basic and least expensive accommodations and will happily do the same next visit.
