I knew I wanted to stay in Isla Verde especially since I love beachfront properties but I had a hard time finding something decent in my budget. After cancelling 2 hotel reservations when i came across Hotel la Playa I knew my boyfriend and i would love it here. I made my reservations over the phone with Linda who was very helpful. When we arrived and saw the view of the beach we were so amazed. Our ocean view room was pretty, clean and huge. it was PERFECT!! Yes the water pressure in the bathroom isnt the best but you can manage. The food here is kinda pricey but you have to try the drinks and monfongo which was delicious. Keep in mind there is free breakfast. There is also a cheaper good quality food at restaurant called Metropol (walking distance) I LOVE that you can catch a 75 cent bus to old san juan . (A cab would be about $20 each way )Take bus T5 OR 53 its about 30 minute scenic ride. Worth it!! TRUST ME! There is also a walgreens close by where I did purchase some souvenirs. THE LOCATION IS PERFECT dont waste money on overpriced hotels. Stay here for good service from an amazing staff and great views.
