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 to the restaurant at Villa Montaña, which is great.

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. There is nothing like listening to the waves while you sit carelessly on a patio...

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 wanted to stay in the very same unit I stayed in before which Trevor was...

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 it's very refreshing feeling the good vibes siting in front of the ocean during the...

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 and both were wonderful. Trevor was a great host and the Villa are perfectly situated...

My husband and I just spent a ten day vacation in Puerto Rico and stayed at Villa Tropical. It far exceeded our expectation. The owners, Trevor and Jennifer, along with their staff were friendly, helpful and treated us like family. The unit we stayed in was TR (Top Right). It was a 2 BR/1 BA with kitchen and living area...

My wife and I stayed in Villa Bajandas for five unforgettable days in late April. Here's the deal with Villa Tropical: it is a collection of different apartments/houses, each with their own charm and quirks. We stayed in one of the most bare bones, sparsely decorated, and inexpensive units available. Because this is what we wanted, we had a phenomenal...

I have mixed feelings about this place. I liked a lot of things about this property and some I really didn't like. However, I would say the good outweigh the bad. The good: SOME of the homes and properties for rent are nice and modern and well priced. The beach is pristine and BEAUTIFUL and isolated, so you can acutally...

Great stay. The beach feels private. The staff is great. Villas are clean and comfortable. Can cook your own meals or dine out in town. We're from Nashville and are coming back. We absolutely love it here.
