Our first time to Puerto Rico, and it won't be our last. Villa Tropical is truly a gem, with it's amazing location, friendly owner and staff, beautiful accomodations, and awesome views. The apartment we rented (# TL), was clean, spacious and airy, decorated with local art, paintings and prints. The king size bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever... More

If you're looking for a "true" puerto rican experience, this is an amazing find. I don't even know where to start! We stayed in Villa Filisha, F2. There were 4 of us and we each had our own bedroom. In addition, the "couple" shared a bathroom in the master bedroom while my friend and I shared a bathroom - perfect!... More

We walked on the beach a couple of miles down to Survivor Beach and coming back I noticed our footprints were still the only ones on the beach. Can't find that very often. Amazing waves if... More

I'm a little late with this review, but better late than never. My husband and I stayed here in August of 2012.

We where there 2 weeks starting with the Villa Filisha (awesome place, beautiful view, luxurious apartment .... Paradise !!) and we ended in the Villa Viento which was less expensive, not beach front, but very nice too... I would for sure return to Villa Filisha ! You won't regret it !

Great place to relax. Prior reviews are right on - spectacular views - ocean front rooms are a must. The larger your group the better - getting two apartments on the same floor is ideal. That way you share the deck. Otherwise the potential exists for issues as to noise, who uses the barbecue etc. Watching the kite surging is... More

Relaxing and beautiful vacation. Best vacation yet! Location is perfect. We had fresh fish from crash boat beach everyday. The views from our deck were priceless. The beach is really nice. If you Surf there is lots of opportunity.
