The staff provided excellent customer service. We had the greatest time. No stress, very laid back. That roof top pool is everything and a bag of chips. The food is amazing and the roof top open air lounge area was very clean and comfy. The cleaning staff was really friendly and engaging. I can wait to go back again. LGBTQ...

We checked into this hotel for a 2 night stay after having spent 10 days on a sailing trip with another couple. We wanted to be close to the airport but also within a manageable distance to see old San Juan. The friends we were with had stayed in Isla Verde before so knew the beach area, but not this...

SJWBC offers fantastic hospitality, combined with a superb location. They remembered us from past stays and offered us a complimentary room upgrade, which is a very nice touch. It's great to be so close to the airport, oceanfront on a beautiful beach and near to some of the best experiences of the island. We didn't rent a car and didn't...

SJWBC is a club in the sense that you either get it or you don't. The staff is fantastic - standouts were May, who takes care of you at breakfast and Leonardo, who takes care of you at the beach. Zest, the gourmet restaurant in the hotel, offers superb small plate dining for a splurge. The concierge was very helpful...

A mixed bag ... that's what you get with this hotel. Pros: Perfectly situated steps from the beach. Personnel extremely friendly and helpful. Nice room ..... nothing extravagant at all. Cons: Over priced hotel restaurant. The room was littered with sand (remember, steps from the beach). Nickle and dime surcharges are a bit of a pain ($2.50 for a bottle...

For months we looked forward to our stay here. We love ocean-front boutique hotels. Is this property highly rated because if its proximity to the beach? Is it because it photographs nicely? It is NOT highly rated because of the rooms. The theme is water. In the lobby, which is thoroughly lovely, it works. And then there are the rooms....

There is still time but so far I think it would take a lot to change my mind and ever come back here. Common areas and elevators not air conditioned. It looks old and in disrepair. Room size and storage is inadequate. Bed very soft. Views are great.
