Stayed in Q1, a one bedroom villa at the end of the property. Gorgeous ocean views, convenient to beach access, short walk to swimming beach. The kitchen was adequately equipped. Trevor is very friendly, helpful. Villa has wifi which is sketchy, and satellite TV, also sketchy, but when looking at that ocean and feeling the breeze, who cares about email... More

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 July 2016

Villa Tropical is an amazing option for holidays, family vacations, and small weddings. The beach is one of the best in Puerto Rico, if not the Caribbean. We enjoyed a great family trip there for Christmas several years ago, cooking in, eating out at local restaurants, bonfires on the beach, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and surfing and kitesurfing right in front of...

Whether you like to surf or kite-surf right at your doorsteps, Villa Tropical offers the best family options in the area. We stayed at several of their villas over teh past few years, and with a family with 2 small children, we found everything we needed to keep the kids entertained yet safe during our stay, for our budget.

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.

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
