“Casa Blanca, Indiana Jones”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Step back in time to an unslick , charming courtyard, bar, pool combo. Israel, the bartender is very charming and helpful. Rented a car from Walter, complete with hugs and encouragement.
Room is very small; bathroom dated and small. Bed is comfy and clean. Good location to walk to expensive hotels and dine and walk to beach.. Good value for the price. People should not complain when they compare budget with highend. You want the Ritz...then go there and pay the price. We prefer "charm"/

This cozy hotel brings a lot to the table when it comes to quality of a great vacation. The employees cater to you and are extremely helpful. It's near public transportation, great restaurants, and convenient stores. I recommend this hotel to first time visitors to isla verde/ San Juan.

The folks at the front desk were everything you want and more. They were very helpful!
Anything we needed they provided. The location was right near the public bus so that's also a plus!
I would definitely come back to Villa Del Sol!

The hotel was very clean and accommodating, but I must say that the best part of our stay was our concierge Walter! He goes above and beyond for his guests. Anything you need Walter will get it for you. He is so kind and sweet and willing to give you as much time and attention as you need, without making you feel like you're putting him out. He made our stay 100% worth it.

Booked rooms here for two nights. First night we got in to san juan and two weeks later the night before we flew out. Both rooms upstairs. First night no bug bites. No sleep either. Room was located directly above car vacuums ( they rent cars here too) and there is no possible way you will ever sleep when those things are on... And they start early. Second night, room 205. Room looked nicer than first night and was over front lobby area so we figured we'd be spared from noise. Well, no vacuum noise but woke up covered with red bite marks all over our shoulders necks and legs!! For 135 a night I don't expect fancy rooms (sure the carpet was musty and we didn't shower without flip flops) but I DO expect to sleep in a bed and not wake up covered with bug bites. If you stay here you will not get sleep and you will probably be attacked by bedbugs. It's a shame really, the place has potential. Were it not for the bug bites I'd have given it an average 2.5 rating for the price range.

We stayed here for one night after staying in St. Croix for 3 days just to go to our favorite restaurant, Metropol, which is right across the street from the hotel. You can't beat the location, but if you're looking for something with a bit more luxury, consider staying at the Intercontinental. Check-in went smoothly, but the room had a funny smell, and the water pressure in the shower was weak. I probably wouldn't stay here again.

This place looked OK on paper, but was pretty much a mess. We were lucky and found a parking place, and check-in went reasonably smoothly. The room was beyond tiny. There was barely room for the bed, a dresser, a tiny TV, and a refrigerator. No chair. Tiny bathroom that actually felt big compared to the room. Two people in the same room was only possible if one was sleeping. AC unit didn't seem to cool.

Cafe was closed for dinner "I got here at eight, and wouldn't get out till 11 if I open for dinner" Breakfast was OK and reasonably priced. Wait staff didn't seem to now how to deal with a tip on the credit card. Bar was closed after 6 pm. Pool was clean.

Check out was a mess. The guy doing it looked to be a trainee, and the woman also at the desk seemed only interested in the car rental aspect of the business. He spent his time totally befuddled, waiting for her to help him, and she spent her time ignoring him.

Hotels in San Juan seemed expensive. This was a "bargain" at $120 plus. I usually don't care much about hotels, but this one was not a bargain. Look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Almost any room would do, if in a different hotel.
