LOCATION: Hotel La Playa is in a good location if you want to be near the beach in Isla Verde, as it’s down the end of a back street on a small peninsula and right on the water. I’m not a beach person, so the extent of my beach wanderings was an early walk just after sunrise on my first...

We had a wonderful experience and kick off to our adventure on the Isla de Encanta. Patricia, Tomas, Julito and the entire staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Access to both beaches with provided small cooler and beach towels was perfect!

This hotel is right near the beach and has amazing views. We stayed in the ocean view room and were in total awe of the view every morning. The breakfast is the standard fare of bagels and cereal but since it's free, I can't really complain. We are at the restaurant a few times and saw crabs running around on...

My stay was just overnight and it was very pleasant. The staff at the front desk was very helpful, but the staff at the bar not so much. Sitting in the back of the hotel is the bar overlooking the ocean. Which was great, but the staff seem to not been able to engage the customers in an timely manner....

Just came from a 7 day cruise from some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. Decided to stay in Puerto Rico one extra day because of a previous visit to puerto rico thought it would be the topping on the cake. Search the Internet for reasonably pricing and location (near airport) came across a few that were right...

I arrived with low expectations and was very pleasantly surprised, the rooms whilst pretty basic have all you need, with fridge, internet, hairdryer, comfortable beds. Despite previous complaints I had no issues with hot water so long as you gave it a couple of minutes to heat up. It was great being right on the beach and very close to...

Stayed here and enjoyed it very much. This hotel is near the water in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico. We had a handicap accessible room with a small refrigerator. The best part was the bed, which was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on! Our room was very near the bar/restaurant on the first floor & we never heard...

The location is great to everything. THe price was right! We stayed 8 days and got to know everyone. Everyone was awesome. We had our dinner celebration after our wedding Ceremony at PLayita. Juan & Cynthia were awesome! The only downfall was parking, parking if you can find it. Otherwise valet. We went 3 days without valet, but gave in....
