Bring your snorkeling gear thanks to the blue hole reef. Villa was excellent for family and the kitchen was fully equipped. BBQ grill with ocean view simply priceless. They have differents types of apartments to accommodate from couples to a family of 6 or 8. This is a secluded area with an spectacular ocean front views!

We love Villa Tropical! We discovered this wonderful place 5 years ago when we returned to live in the Island from Delaware. We stayed at Villa Quinones and just loved it. Since then we have returned three times. Our favorite is Villa Bajandas- words can't describe how much we love it. The view from the balcony has to be one...

We spent the first week of July 2012 in Villa Filisha F2 and had a wonderful experience. The apartment was great for our small family. Beach front was perfect for getting on/off the beach quickly and the view was amazing. We were immediately supplied with beach toys for our 2 year old who used them every day. They even had...

I live on the east coast of Puerto Rico and needed a get-away. My boyfriend and I chose this place after reading the reviews here. We reserved our room last minute and stayed in R1.
