The pool is lovely and clean and access to the beach is easy. The mini market is convenient too. The game room has been renovated and they have a new...

Room was big. The bathroom was very large as well. The balcony and the view from the 14th floor is what really took my breath away. Great views of the beach and ocean. The large balcony was the best place to sit with a cocktail or your morning coffee. The lobby was just redone and very modern. The only thing...

This hotel is pretty average (think mid-tier US hotel chain)...but if you get a room overlooking the beach...it is probably nicer view of any place we've been! We were on a higher floor and being the hotel is on the end of this long beach you have a great scene of ocean and beach before you. They have a fabulous...

I loved this hotel. Reasonable rates, excellent location. Super clean. Close to the airport, restaurants, casinos, clubs, shops. On the beach. Free covered, secured parking. My only regret is that I didn't stay long enough to enjoy the amenities like breakfast, pool, the bar area.

This hotel is conveniently located next to the airport, but without noticeable airplane noice. Very spacious room, dual queen on the 17th floor (penthouse floor, not that this means anything here). The furniture in the outdated tiki style, and while decently maintained, older. The 29" tv was very much on the small side, but it was flatscreen. Large bathroom with...

Average hotel, rooms outdated but clean, needs new bedding-flat pillows. Located in a residential are within a mile or so of the airport so if airplanes taking off next door bothers you, this isn't your place. Moderate timeshare sales attempts, not too bothersome. Nice beach that gets pretty small at high tide and sun is blocked by hotels. You cannot...

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
