Cool Affordable Place

My stay at the Isla Verde Towers was GREAT. I took my wife and two daughters age 5 and a 8 months old. The place was on the strip at Isla Verde but at the end or beginning depending on where your coming from, right off the freeway and 5 minutes from the airport. The Condo itself was nice. The neighbors were friendly and the neighborhood was safe (a lot a people jogging in the evening), secure parking, 24 hour grocery store across the street, wal greens, resturants, casinos, within walking distances and the beach 20 yards from the elevator with private access with a picnic table to eat and people watch on the beach.
The condo was cozy and equiped with a fridge, microwave, stove top (electric), ceiling fans, cable Tv and air conditioning. The bedroom was nice and the bed was comfy but if you are a light sleeper the strip can get loud with evening traffic. The futon was of course a futon (meaning I've never in my 36 years on earth slept on a futon that felt like a regular bed.) There was ample space for my bodyboarding equipment (2 boards, fins, travel board bags) and my familys other belongings. The Showers was nice and the bathroom accomdated the four of us.
For my family this place was good value because it was central to the places we wanted to see and explore. The Surf beaches Playa Aviones, Tocones, and Chatarra was only 15 minutes away, Old San Juan was 20 minutes away, El Yunque was about 45 minutes, and Kasalta Bakery was 5 minutes away driving. We had a place to cook, a place on the beach, and a place with locals and tourist.
This place is for a person who want to enjoy the real culture of Puerto Rico by staying with locals and living like a average puerto rican lives. IF your a reality tv person go stay at THE HILTON OR RITZ CARLTON!
