10/10 Exceptional

I cannot recommend this place enough! The comments saying the staff are amazing are beyond true. The staff made Villa Eshta an insanely friendly and welcoming environment. Not only did they give perfect recommendations, they went out of their way to give us a real Puerto Rican experience. Villa Eshta is located in a good area... close to beach, as well as one of the main shopping/eating streets. The rooms are exactly as expected from pictures online. If you are looking to experience more of San Juan than just the beautiful beaches, Villa Eshta is absolutely the place to stay.

Homey, convenient to beaches and authentic PR dining, we would stay here again. Location is off of the main street, so not as noisy. Staff was helpful and friendly! The kitchen and sitting area in our room were a surprise bonus, although we were only staying one night.

4/10 Fair

To be fair, I'm not the target market for this place, but our night here was one long sleep-deprivation torture simulation: loud male voices right outside our window into the wee hours (so close we could hear entire conversations), house music blasting nearby at 3am, cars rumbling by blaring music, more loud voices and banging around after the clubs closed, bright lights piercing through the curtains allll night long, early morning trash trucks - it never stopped. Do NOT stay here unless you are the type of person who can fall asleep and stay asleep in the middle of a house party. Also, there was no hot water. The place itself was clean but dumpy. I am astonished that they can charge $160/night here. I feel duped. Yes, it's close to the beach, but IMO not worth the trauma.
