I'm not even sure how I stumbled across the hotel in Trip Advisor but I'm glad I did. Was looking for something reasonable and close to the airport and I found so much more. I thought this hotel was adorable...reminded me of an old school hotel in Miami or something. I loved walking in and hearing Jimmy Buffet, etc over the speakers, too. It is right on the water but you need to walk across the street to get to the actual beach.
I was upgraged to an ocean view room upon arrival..this room was great and what a view (if you are staying awhile, it would be worth the extra money, I think). There is a restaurant and bar here which overlooks the water...food was good and they had live music (tho, that did go somewhat late).
Now, this is definitely not a 4/5 star hotel, more like a 3 star but it's very cute and a good value for the money. In fact I would have given it 5 stars except I had a lot of problems with the shower and getting hot water (which I also had in OSJ-so might be a broad problem). I personally would stay in OSJ over Isla Verde but this is def a good option if it fits what you are looking for.
