We had the greatest time. The room was very nice. The beach is world class and the staff were professional and very accommodating. The patio is right on the beach where we spent a lot of time. We will definitely come back.

Excellent , highly recommend. Just finished our Corporate Retreat. Spacious apartments, beautiful views , right on the beach. Do a little business and then just relax. Take in the sun on a wooden deck or in the sand ... Your choice. If you are staying in Isabela do it here.

On that trip we stopped visited Villa Tropical to see the property and immediately fell in love with it and the people who work there. I had been in contact with both Jocelyn and Trevor in planning... More

Ever find a place that is so special and so secret that you want to keep it to yourself? That's how we feel about Villa Tropical but we have to share because this place deserves all the stars there are. This is our second time experiencing ultimate tranquility in a chill spot with breathtaking views of the ocean. We've travelled... More

it is very tough to beat the ocean view sitting right on Shacks Beach. I have stayed several times and always have found the accommodations great and the location is unbeatable. Scuba or snorkeling around the Blue Hole or otter reef is fantastic and about a minute walk from the deck. Kite surfing is done right here also. The rooms... More

I can not say enough wonderful things about Villa Tropical. My husband and I live in the states and wanted to elope in Puerto Rico. We found Villa Tropical through yelp and tripadvisor. We were a bit nervous planning everything, not having seen the location in person. The reservation and communication prior to our visit was very easy. They were... More

We have been staying at Villas Tropical since I was 18. I just celebrated my 40th birthday and it was just as perfect as the first time we stayed. Pure R&R for the entire family. Thanks! The Villas are fully stocked and it is like having a beach house without the mortgage. Make sure to pick the ocean front Villas... More

My family of 12 just spent two nights and three days in one of the properties. We were divided into three apartments and they were all clean, well kept, beautiful and modern. We had a spectacular view. It's a quite and private experience to bond with the family in the pool and in the beach. The beach it's at walking... More

I rented a room for my boyfriend and I to stay for a weekend. And when we got there, the place wasnt anything the web pages showed. The place had a very bad smell. The room was very small, the bathroom was dirty, the bed sheets where dirty with stains. When i called the owner to see what he can... More
