Spend a week-end with my wife, and my 9 year old daughter at OB2. The place is really quiet, private, clean, etc. The beach is beautiful, it have some place for the kids to swim, and the snorkeling it's great. Walking distance through the beach...More
It was an interesting place to find, but well worth the little adventure of finding it. I would recommend that you spend the money and get one of the ocean front apartments vs the others which are just a short walk away to the beach....More
This is my second review on Villa Tropical. I had written one almost two years ago when I came here with a friend for the first time. I actually have family in Isabela, but didn't know about this property until almost two years ago! I...More
This place is awesome. This is a place were you will pay for a nice, clean accommodation but received an awesome view, sort of like a private beach to enjoy the sun and relax with the sound of the waves. This area is quiet so...More
We just returned from a week in Puerto Rico and spent four wonderful days at Villa Tropical. We originally planned only two days at VT, but the beach and location was so great we stayed two more days. We stayed in two different oceanfront units...More

VT Main (BL, TR, TL), Villa Rivero and Bajandas units have the shortest distance to the swimming area outfront and best views of the blue hole coral reef but agreed, sometimes having a pool option too is golden with kids... More
VT Main (BL, TR, TL), Villa Rivero and Bajandas units have the shortest distance to the swimming area outfront and best views of the blue hole coral reef but agreed, sometimes having a pool option too is golden with kids. Mother Nature sets the schedule for calm vs rough waters and though we can estimate calmer in summer than in winter, it all depends on the weather. If however it is super tough swell surfing time of year, best to watch not snorkel. If it's calm you don't need to venture far from shore to see live coral and an assortment of sea life. The swimming hole always offers a protective refuge for bathers but expect a current, which in itself can be loads of fun. One can always drive the short distance to jobos beach or crashboat for more sandy bottoms. There are beaches best known for learning to surf and those like shacks known for its miles and miles of untouched wilderness. Our kids, 7&9 love the Long Beach walks exploring for shells and bamboo and other ocean collectibles. Calm is ok, but they prefer waves to jump in. Booties are advisable as well as encouraging doing our best not to touch the coral or sea plant life but just in case, nice to have on. Always wear your mask so you can keep an eye on your underwater surroundings and you will have a great time. Rent an SUP and explore the reef from above the surface. Walk over to tropical trail rides and enjoy a shacks beach horseback ride adventure. Call reservations and talk more about when you are planning to visit and we can best advise on available units and their features for families.
