The bedrooms themselves are nothing to write about at all. But I only really need a bed and a shower in order to be relatively happy. I am all about the overall experience and the hotel staff was extremely accommodating. Kiara assisted us out at the pool deck and we enjoyed her service. Thank you Kiara and thank you Marritt Isla Verde staff.

Room Tip: Corner suite had a beautiful view. Nice but outdated room. Nice balcony

I enjoyed my stay here. The taxis were still very expensive for credit card users, $30 flat rate (even if you were traveling in the same zone which is $10 cash). We stayed on a higher floor than last year and that made all the difference in the world as far as the noise was concerned. We stayed on the 12th floor this year, and I rarely heard anything. It was like we had the floor to ourselves, although I know we weren't because I saw people coming up on the elevator. The casino was still very slow especially in the daytime. The hotel provides you will $10 in matchplay tickets for the casino, but that doesn't seem to get many people in there. The room service was great and always prompt. There was an issue while we were there, the hotel internet went out!! That's a huge problem when there are that many people staying. It didnt affect me because I was there for relaxation so I was unplugged most of the time anyway. The wifi was working in the main area (they don't have wifi in the rooms) so the traffic in the main lobby and patio was busy with people trying to get online. The in-room movies were also having connectivity issues during the time the Internet was out. I went to Sirena twice and had an enjoyable experience both times. The beach was busy as early as 8am but there are plenty hammocks and seating so it wasnt an issue. At night, the beach behind the hotel is lit so I would have felt safe if my boyfriend decided to stay in the room. Overall, we had a nice time and will return again.

Absolutely a stunning location and setting. Very close to Old San Juan, downtown Isla Verde, the airport and a short ride to Fajardo. The resort sits directly on the beach with an excellent poolside area as well. The hotel itself is showing signs of aging and could use some rehab but the setting far exceeds the drawbacks.

Room Tip: The rooms are spacious. The beds were very comfortable. The cleanliness was average. Carpeting was f...

We had a wonderful stay, beautiful beach, swim up bar. There is a wonderful outside restaurant that goes right to the edge of the beach. The service is great and the food is delicious. The check in staf could not have been nicer, nancy helped us check in and went over the top in getting us taken care of. Great place to stay.

We stayed at the Courtyard on Isla Verde for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. The staff was extremely friendly from check in to check out. All of the rooms face the ocean but the East side has the best views, especially the high floors. Small resort, but it has everything you need, swim up bar, live music, casino(some older machines, but they serve the purpose). The restaurant was a little disapointing for dinner, but it could have just been our preference for other tastes. I definately would go back there again if I return to Puerto rico. It is located close to the airport but we didnt notice any noise problems from the airport. Taxi ride, $12 from Airport, $22 to old san juan. We rented a car for our trip to the rain forest for $45. Drive was fairly easy and was a lot cheaper than the tours.
Karla , the front desk mgr and Nancy were great to deal with. We hope to return.

Room Tip: as for East side, high floor. Dont pay extra for Ocean view.. All the rooms are great.
