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...

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...

Our first time to Puerto Rico, and it won't be our last. Villa Tropical is truly a gem, with it's amazing location, friendly owner and staff, beautiful accomodations, and awesome views. The apartment we rented (# TL), was clean, spacious and airy, decorated with local art, paintings and prints. The king size bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever...

If you're looking for a "true" puerto rican experience, this is an amazing find. I don't even know where to start! We stayed in Villa Filisha, F2. There were 4 of us and we each had our own bedroom. In addition, the "couple" shared a bathroom in the master bedroom while my friend and I shared a bathroom - perfect!...

What an awesome place to hang out and relax. If you enjoy natural beaches with plenty of undisturbed spaces then you will love this. We walked on the beach a couple of miles down to Survivor Beach and coming back I noticed our footprints were still the only ones on the beach. Can't find that very often. Amazing waves if...

I'm a little late with this review, but better late than never. My husband and I stayed here in August of 2012.
