We stayed in the (F2) 3 bedroom ocean villa. The owners Mike and Val live on the second floor. They were very helpful in showing us where to go to snorkel and what areas to avoid. It was beautiful and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Stayed at VT from 19Feb13 to 1Mar13 in M2. It is a one bedroom ocean front condo with a shared patio. It was very clean and comfortable. Perfect for making our own breakfast then heading out touring the area. We shared our patio with a wonderful couple who had been coming there for many years so they were a great...

We rented one of the Villa Quinones buildings. The furnishings were a little tired, but very clean, and for the price it represents excellent value. The location is stunning: on Shacks Beach just outside Isabela; a renowned surfing spot, and the beach just in front of the main Villa Tropical building, although bijou, is great for young kids, lounging and...

We just spent a week at Villa Tropical and I can honestly say we could not have asked for anything better...We already can't wait to go back! The cool thing about VT is that each of the different apartments/condos have their own unique special qualities. Depending on what you are looking for and what price point you want to spend,...

I don't want to steer people away from VT for whom it is RIGHT for, and I'll be specific: we were in the main Villa Tropical building - this may not be the case for any of the other villas (we weren't able to get into the others, they were booked.) The location in front of the Blue Hole on...

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa Tropical. We had two one-bedroom oceanfront units. The shared "lanai" was outstanding for relaxing and enjoying the sun and surf. The units were clean yet in need of some updating. For the price, you can't beat the Villa.

Directly in front of the VT Main building is the "Blue Hole", a coral-reef-protected swimming area that provides visitors the opportunity to enjoy a variety of sea life while snorkeling and diving in underwater caverns. Just west of the coral reef is a challenging surf break and favorite kite-surfing and SUP destination. There are 31unique, fully - equipped apartments with everything for your home away from home on the beach.
