This is the way to go folks. My husband and I are frequent travelers and have done the all-inclusives, cruises, and rentals. We both agree this place gives you the most value without having to give up the most important things we disire when vacationing......warm blue waters, private beach front and everything you need to make you feel at home....

The location of these villas can't be beat- just steps from Shacks Beach. We stayed in Q3- well worth the money. This room was awesome...gorgeous view, nice and modern, great deck with seating and a hammock. We rented snorkelling equipment from the front office- definitely worth it because the snorkelling turned out to be AWESOME. We saw a lot at...

If you are looking for an exclusive, relaxing, beautiful part of paradise, try Villa Tropical,. Hosts Trevor & Jennifer go out of their way to make you really comfortable. The local beaches and restaurants, especially Ocean Front, compliment the experience. We stayed in Q2.

We came in with a large group. The apartments are in different bunches. They did nothing to help us all get rooms close together. This really did matter since we are all very close friends. I feel that we were more of an incontinence than anyrhing. At that price they should at least consider our requests.

Just returned yesterday from taking my son there to meet up with friends who were also staying there, to surf NW P.R. We stayed 5 nights in Q5, a nice small comfortable studio apartment. Everything the 2 of us could need was there. A few steps from the beach yet not directly on it with a nice terrace to relax...

We stayed for a week in Feb & absolutely loved every moment!!! It was exactly if not even better than we had expected. We stayed in F1 which is a gorgeous & comfortable apt.

We are not city people and wanted a more secluded place to stay and relax. Villa Tropical gave us just that. What a wonderful view right out our front door. Huge deck and just steps to the beach. We hated to leave and would go back in an instant. Trevor was very helpful in giving suggestions of where to dine...

The website was pretty dead on about what I was getting. They provided the right amenities, and the price was great. Walk out onto the deck and look at the ocean? Yup. Perfect.

We stayed 2 nights in a one-bedroom condo right on the beach. The condo was nice enough, the beach area was lovely, and the sound of the water lapping all night long was wonderful. It seems that most of the friendly people we met come there for long stays year after year. Those people probably don't mind that the condo...
