Villa Tropical Oceanfront Apartments on Shacks Beach
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Isabela
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Trevor, Jennifer and staff saved our vacation! Villa Tropical owners Trevor and Jennifer really do care about their guest experience, comfort and guest service is a top priority at Villa Tropical. We thought we were saving a bit and rented from another place at Shacks-site unseen. Big mistake-Big letdown....lets just say it was not for us.......Villa Tropical owners Trevor and Jennifer along with Cookie and their staff bent over backwards to accomodate us last minute. We moved a few times to different apartments and houses all excellent with each having its own charm. The top right apartment has been remodeled and updated recently and can not be beat for the Shacks experience! Renting from Villa Tropical you have many options to chose from for your vacation rental and you will love it. All rentals are clean, neat and with amenities travellers need and want.
Shacks Beach and Villa Tropical, a small piece of heaven here in Puerto Rico!

Room Tip: All of Villa Tropicals rentals have a good description and photos on their website to help you chose...

We stayed in one of the 1 bedroom apt's with the kitchen and during veterans day weekend in 2011 and really enjoyed it. Having the beach just steps away from you and hearing the waves at night was great. We live on the other side of the island and enjoy getaways like this. Although you have to share the back terrace area it was no biggie. we shared the grill neigbors were quiet just like us. The apartment a/c unit in the bedroom was kinda loud but we hit the bed so tired that we wouldn't notice the noise till the morning. Aside from that my wife, daughter and I plan to return.

We stayed here in November, 2010 so I'm a little late with my review.

I traveled to Isabela during the low season so with Weather not being all that great we spent a good deal of time in the apartment we rented for the week at Villa Tropical. As there weren't many tourists around the owner bumped us up from the studio to a 1 bedroom, 1st floor apartment. Wow, was it nice! It had all of the amenities of my current apartment and felt like a home away from home.

Being steps away from the beach isn't too bad either! Also across the way was the horse stable which always has a a few trips daily. It's a short 5 min drive to town and all of the other beaches. So this place has everything you need as far as convenience.

Only negative thing is that it's set back away from the main road and somewhat difficult to find if you've never been there before. During the rainy season the road gets flooded and a few time I was a bit nervous about whether of not our little Yaris would make it through!

All in all- definitely worth a stay. Isabela is beautiful and the beaches are amazing!

Room Tip: Go for the oceanfront apartments with a deck and hammock

This place is amazing. The blue hole is one of the best place to enjoy scuba or any other suacuatic sport. The place is a perfect setting for stay with you couple for a romantic night or simple enjoy the beach life and the local culture. The owner is a positive pleasant plus!
