Isla Verde, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Overlooking the beach, which offers water sports, free towels, umbrellas, and chairs
  • All rooms have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and coffeemakers
  • 2 on-site restaurants
  • Attractive rooftop pool
  • Fitness center (though it's small)
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • No full spa (but beachside and in-room treatments are available)
  • Fee for mini-fridges in rooms
  • Pool and fitness center are both small

Bottom Line

The 80-room Water Club offers great value in ritzy Isla Verde, San Juan. It has all of the beach vacation essentials: a location almost right on the beach (you have to take a small pathway by the parking lot), two on-site restaurants, a rooftop pool, and bright rooms. The rooms are contemporary and sparse, with just a blue accent wall and little furniture, but they do have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and coffeemakers. Hotel features aren't as impressive as at the more expensive properties nearby: the pool and fitness center are both very small, and there's no full spa (although beachside and in-room massages are available). But if your priorities are access to a great beach and solid rooms, it's hard to do much better for the price in San Juan.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Isla Verde, minutes from the beach

The San Juan Water Club is located directly on Isla Verde beach, known for its great snorkeling and kite surfing. There's not much to see in the surrounding area, though, and it's $20 cab ride to Old San Juan. Dining options in the immediate neighborhood are pricey and tend to be less than stellar.

Isla Verde feels somewhat similar to neighboring Condado, with oceanfront luxury hotels overlooking several wonderful white-sand beaches. However, the dining and shopping scenes are less impressive here. Tourists come here for two main reasons: the wonderful beaches bordering the neighborhood on the north, and the short drive to the airport, located a couple of minutes east by car. Isla Verde Avenue, the main thoroughfare in the area, is lined with self-contained hotels overlooking the sand.

  • 7-minute drive to Luis Munoz Marin International Airport
  • Right on Isla Verde Beach
  • 8-minute drive to Puerto Rico's Museum of Art
  • 8-minute drive to Puerto Rico Convention Center
  • 9-minute drive to the Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 11-minute drive to San Juan Cruise Port
  • 12-minute drive to San Cristobal Fort
  • 13-minute drive to La Fortaleza, the Governor's Palace
  • 14-minute drive to Old San Juan
