We just spent a week at Villa Tropical and I can honestly say we could not have asked for anything better...We already can't wait to go back! The cool thing about VT is that each of the different apartments/condos have their own unique special qualities. Depending on what you are looking for and what price point you want to spend,...

I don't want to steer people away from VT for whom it is RIGHT for, and I'll be specific: we were in the main Villa Tropical building - this may not be the case for any of the other villas (we weren't able to get into the others, they were booked.) The location in front of the Blue Hole on...

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa Tropical. We had two one-bedroom oceanfront units. The shared "lanai" was outstanding for relaxing and enjoying the sun and surf. The units were clean yet in need of some updating. For the price, you can't beat the Villa.

My wife and I enjoyed the Villa Tropical last winter so much that we returned for a week this past January. We love the Villa and all of the nice people who work there including Trevor the owner and Cookie the office manager. We stayed in Q1 for three nights and then moved over to last year's favorite, R1 with...

Amazing views on the ocean front units. We switched rooms from a non oceanfront unit to an ocean front unit and it was well worth it as the huge windows bring the outside in. Even our non ocean front unit was nice as it was on the 2nd floor with a healthy outside wrap around deck that still captured the...

Very nice place, We rented a 2 bed room apartment, it was beautiful! Very clean, great tv, view of the ocean, everyone's very nice, It's right on Shacks beach, two nice restaurants are in walking distance. Jobos beach is a 2 minute drive and the beaches of Rincon are 40 minutes away. If you kite and surf this is a...

This is the third time we have stayed at Villa Tropical Apartments, each time at a different rental unit. Most are right in front of the best beaches in Puerto Rico. Trevor and Cookie manage the apartments and keep the apartments super clean and maintained. They are also full of information about things to do and places to eat in...
