The room was dirty with stained carpets and looks very old fashion. The sixth floor hall smells bad. I doesn't recommend. The pool was nice and public areas were clean and beautiful. The breakfast was good, but no excellent.

About
Description
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 More 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.
