I hate being captive to a resort and racking up a huge bill at the same restaurant meal after meal. Villa Tropical offers very nice, clean, well-appointed apartments at an incredible location and allows you to plan out your vacation the way you want to. There are excellent supermarkets nearby with just about everything you would find in the states,...

Action? (Kite surfing) Exercise? (Paddleboarding, snorkeling, beach walking) Rest? (Sit in sun or shade; read, nap, play games) This place is great for everything related to what you might expect of a casual Puerto Rico beach vacation. We keep retuning and it's fun to run into people we've met before. If you need to walk to a lot of packed...

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Villa Tropical. Before we left to come home, we gave Villa tropical a deposit to secure our accomodations for another visit next winter. It was that good. We were in the Q3 accomodation. It had a fully equipped kitchen and a beautifully furnished living room and bedroom. All the rooms were air...

Spent 2 nights in Villa Quinones, M4. By far one of the best beachfront views I've ever had at such a reasonable price. The apartments are clean and have everything you need for your stay. Staff was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend Villa Tropical!

Stayed in Q1, a one bedroom villa at the end of the property. Gorgeous ocean views, convenient to beach access, short walk to swimming beach. The kitchen was adequately equipped. Trevor is very friendly, helpful. Villa has wifi which is sketchy, and satellite TV, also sketchy, but when looking at that ocean and feeling the breeze, who cares about email...

Whether you like to surf or kite-surf right at your doorsteps, Villa Tropical offers the best family options in the area. We stayed at several of their villas over teh past few years, and with a family with 2 small children, we found everything we needed to keep the kids entertained yet safe during our stay, for our budget.

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Tropical again this year, and what a wonderful and beautiful place to vacation at. Wow! What a view! There's a giant grocery store conveniently located 5 min. away to fully stock your completely furnished kitchen just like home, if you like to cook as we do, but you can...

We had the greatest time. The room was very nice. The beach is world class and the staff were professional and very accommodating. The patio is right on the beach where we spent a lot of time. We will definitely come back.

Loved VT. Front desk is great, beach is super breezy w big waves and lots of kite surfers. Walk to Hola Lola's for outdoor drink and dinner or walk to Villa Montana for find dining. Horseback Riding on the beach is a must. Spectacular sunsets! Recommend a car to visit various beaches -Jobos is a great one! Take a surf...
