The kitchenette was well equipped with large refrigerator, stove (which I didn't use) because we went to many nice restaurants. We took the bus for...

The pictures online looked inviting, but what I discovered when I arrived was a run down, very blighted 70's vintage hotel. The rooms felt old and cheap. I was grossed out to walk on the carpeted floors without shoes in my guest room. The mattress and bedding were also old, cheap, and worn. The only thing worse than the facility...

Room was big. The bathroom was very large as well. The balcony and the view from the 14th floor is what really took my breath away. Great views of the beach and ocean. The large balcony was the best place to sit with a cocktail or your morning coffee. The lobby was just redone and very modern. The only thing...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
ESJ Towers was originally opened in 1975, offering 450 rooms which range from studios to three bedrooms, all providing kitchenettes or full kitchens & laundry facilities in select apartments, making them the largest sized accommodations in the area. It has been an iconic property on the beautiful Isla Verde Beach for 40 years, functioning as a mix of hotel and timeshare resort, with many owners coming to ESJ since the beginning. Starting in June of 2015, ESJ embarked on an ambitious rebranding and renovation of the property to the new ESJ Azul. This included extensive renovation of the lobby, all hallways, restaurant, and the addition of a newbar/lounge, gameroom, and sales center. Already blessed with one of the best locations on the beach in the San Juan area, the new ESJ Azul is truly an amazing testament to good service, spacious and comfortable rooms, and a legacy of excellence that is more apparent than ever. ... more   less
