Villa Montana Beach Resort is located in Isabela, roughly 1 1/2 hours west of San Juan. My boyfriend and I booked two nights through Hotwire. We thought the price was a very good deal. We arrived at Villa Montana at around 3pm. We were quite tired from the long trip. We were told check-in was not until 4pm. So we waited, and waited. We got to our room at around 4:30pm.
The room was great, although a little bit small. I loved the decor. The A/C barely worked. The bathroom was average. There was a locked door at the end of the hallway. We would hear noise coming from the other side of the door at night. We weren't quite happy about that. There is no internet in the rooms, so if you want internet you have to go to the lobby. The flat screen tv was the best thing in the room, and I don't think that's a good thing.
I've got to admit that the resort is beautiful and well kept. The pools were small, and quite ordinary. The children's pool by the restaurant was always crowded. You'd think the pools would have a little waterfall, or a waterslide, but no. Next time, I'm staying at the Hyatt.
The resort boasts 3 miles of private beach, and sure enough, this is what you'll be getting. Problem is, the beach is not enjoyable. It is full of rocks, and the tide can be quite dangerous. If like you constantly stepping on mossy rocks, while being pushed back and forth by big waves, then this is the resort for you. Puerto Rico has beautiful beaches, and this is not one of them. We ended up driving to a different beach 30 minutes away.
The rock climbing wall was out of order. The restaurant was expensive, and not worth it. There was nothing to do but swim in the pool, and watch tv. I've got a tv, and pool at home. The resort was pretty much dead after 8pm, and it's an hour drive to Aguadilla, the nearest big city.
The front desk personel were not very friendly. We had to wait like 20 minutes to ask for towels. They were talking on the phone and wouldn't even look at us. At least check-out was fast. I couldn't wait to get out of that place. Bottomline, if you want to get away of it all, and if you enjoy seclusion, this is the resort for you.
