In Isla Verde, the beach is the main attraction, but a few decent restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel.
Don't be expecting charming shops and romantic hideaways in Isla Verde. Most tourists come here for two main reasons: the wonderful beaches and the short drive to the airport, located a couple of minutes east by car.
Isla Verde feels somewhat similar to neighboring Condado, but the dining and shopping scenes are less impressive here. Isla Verde Avenue, the main thoroughfare in the area, is lined with self-contained hotels overlooking the sand.
The highlights of this 402-room resort in Isla Verde are the large, low-key beach and inviting pool, which includes Jacuzzis, a rock grotto area with waterfalls, and a swim-up bar. Rooms are chain-like but pleasant enough, with clean white linens, light blue accent walls, and basic shower/tub combos, though there are some signs of wear (the bathroom fixtures in particular could use updating). There are some decent restaurants and bars within walking distance, and Old San Juan is just a short drive away.
