Isla Verde Beach is to Puerto Rico’s San Juan what Ipanema Beach is to Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro. It is stylish, upscale, and the place to be seen. It is also considered one of the best municipal beaches in San Juan. Translated to 'Green Island' in Spanish, Isla Verde draws beach lovers from all over for many desirable high points, including plenty of fashionable, upscale hotels, a thriving beachfront spilling over with restaurants and cafes, and a hip, urban vibe. The crescent shape and bustling atmosphere take center stage in this exciting area of Puerto Rico’s capital city.
Isla Verde San Juan is long and curvy, with tan-colored sand, tall palm trees, and a long line of condos and gorgeous hotels. Adjacent to Isla Verde Beach is Carolina Beach, offering some more amenities and services.
There are plenty of things to do along the shores of Isla Verde Beach. There is a popular beach shop offering banana boat rides, parasailing, and Hobie Cat and wave runner rentals. The rentals can be taken out by the hour or by half and full days. Diving is also a possibility and there are several dive shops that can take you out on the deeper waters. Cayo Diablo, part of an island chain on the east coast, is one of the most popular diving sites.
The gentle surf and wide beach (over 200 feet in width) are the most welcoming aspects of Isla Verde Beach. Snorkeling is a fun pursuit and though visibility isn’t magnificent, it’s still possible to have a look at small marine creatures and corals living in the surrounding reef. Water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, and body boarding are other available and popular activities. Many of the shops and hotels lining the beach host special events and offer water sports and other beach activities. Note that holidays, weekends, and the summer months can get extremely busy, which means prior arrangements for many activities are necessary.
All along the strip of beach there are condos, hotels, and other high rises along with cafes, bars, and plenty of eateries for every budget. There are also numerous nightclubs and lounges around Isla Verde Beach, which means nightlife is especially lively. There are several spas, as well as two big-name casinos situated in Playa de Isla Verde.
Our Magic Team is always on-call to make your stay just perfect! Anything you need, they will do.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Just got back... We loved this place in front of the beach!! What you see is what you get, it seems that the last people that wrote reviews were mad about something else. We enjoyed wonderful Internet connection, Netflix every night, dinner with candles in the balcony, food delivery since the property is close to restaurants in Isla Verde. Just a great time to spend together with no interruptions and access to the beach. Wish we were there now...
