“Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

We arrived at Verdana Hotel on Tuesday September 25, 2012, and departed on Saturday September 29, 2012. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel lobby is very clean, warm and inviting. Our rooom was clean, and well lit, with lots of sunshine, overlooking the pool area, and with a partial view of the ocean. We felt safe and secure in the hotel, almost like a home away from home. The floors of the hotel are very quiet and clean. I would definitely stay at the Verdanza again, when I return to beautiful Puerto Rico. The location of the Verdanza was within close walking distance to the ocean, and other hotels, if you so choose to visit them for nightlife.

Linford C, you said it best..."a home away from home"! That has been our aim since Verdanza opened its doors almost three years ago and it is a genuine pleasure to read about guests who in fact feel as welcome. Please be sure to let us know at feelthevibe@verdanzahotel.com next time your travel plans bring you to Puerto Rico and Verdanza Hotel!

RobertoCofresi, a review from a "boricua" is a real treat. We are happy to learn that Verdanza offers a welcoming experience to visitors to our island as well as local residents staying with us on business or perhaps a restful getaway. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you head to San Juan! Cheers,

The Verdanza is not fancy, but it was a great price for the location. The only issue I really had was that pool was not as clean as I would like. There was a film on the top of the water. I told the front desk, and they said it is cleaned every day at 7:00 am - the film was still there the next two days.
The front desk staff was helpful and informative. The location was awesome.
Good value for the price.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 3rd floor. There was a conference in the conference center and the music was RE...

jewelz64, thank you for taking the time to share your experience because every experience drives us to aim higher. While our pool is in fact serviced and cleaned first thing every morning, we have recently hired a new company to ensure that standards remain high for the enjoyment and safety of our guests. Meanwhile, I was glad to read that your stay was pleasant and met your needs without breaking the budget! I do hope you will visit us again. Best,

Ok folks decided this year to go Puerto Rico for my birthday and although didn't have as much fun in the G.R. Solaris in Cancun all in all I can't really complain about this hotel. The rooms were clean Nice layout LCD TVs King size bed. Good staff had our little breakfast at the cafe downstairs the lady I think her name was Nicole, was very Nice she hooked us up. The lobby decor and layout was really Nice just like the picture lounges were Nice just a great looking hotel only thing is we had no tour guest personnel for most of our stay she showed up Sunday when tours a closed (so what's her purpose? ) , no activities nothing to do really pool was Nice bordering on Ok I guess. Love the location LITERALLY 4 mins from the airport and two blocks from the beach. Side note I enjoyed isla verde wayyyyyy more than old San Juan. They would recommend this spot called "Reices" I still don't know Why u wait 2 hrs to get on 2hrs to get a waiter 2 hrs to get water 2hrs to get a mediocre appetizer I mean you get my drift stay in Isla Verde do a couple tours and you be fine Old San Juan is full of useless, steering, slightly rude people ughhhh. Anywhoooo I would recomend the Verdanza hotel would've given it 3 1/2 stars but is not allowed. Nice hotel just gotta have some activities for hotel guests, fix the ceiling in rooms, ceiling tiles kinda out, make sure all ice machines are working and take care of the gym equipment a bit better and you'll be TOP NOTCH guaranteed.

I just want to say thank you to the Verdanza for making our trip amazing. We made this trip for our ten year anniversary 5 days after I had an appendectomy. First they found us a great package for 5 nights, with the fifth night being free. Along with the package came a bunch of discounts such as one of many free tours, a handful of discount cards for the restaurants and more. We had a great room overlooking the pool. Bathroom was a little small but clean. Balcony was great to sit an enjoy the ocean breeze at night. They really made us feel welcome from the time we checked in until we left and had answers to every question we asked. We will definitely be staying here again next year. I cannot say enough at how happy we were to have stayed there. Also we were one block from the ocean where you can rent chairs and umbrellas. Not to mention all the great restaurants in the area.

Room Tip: We enjoyed a room facing the pool with a balcony.

Stayed with my wife during labor day weekend, from Sat thru Mon. From the check in, reception was great. Room was a big one. Bed was firm but soft, two nights were a dream. TV worked perfectly. Bathroom a little small, but was clean (and I must say, super clean). Part of the package (Feel the Vibe package) included complimentary drinks and a discount on the restaurants (will review restarurants apart, but as preview - I love them). Pool was at an appropiate temperature, but (and it's the only "but" in this review) in some areas the water showed a little murky (maybe some of the filters weren't working or were blocked). Jacuzzi, hot, even helped my wife with an injured feet she had! Parking was secure. We decided on the second day we're coming back on December for our anniversary!

Room Tip: City-view room is a great one (5th floor and higher)

RichiePR77, what a pleasure to have a neighbor "sanjuanero" as our guest - and be able to make him feel right at home. it's great that you were able to enjoy our different culinary options, which are quite diverse and (if I say so myself) fantastic each in its own way. Further, please know that we have since hired a new pool maintenance company to ensure that the pool is serviced to the highest standards.

RichiePR77, be sure to let us know at feelthevibe@verdanzahotel.com when you book your anniversary getaway in December! Until then, best regards,
