Why should you rent from me?
I have experience living and running my business from the ESJ Towers for the last 25 years. I have great reviews and many returning clients. Being located in the ESJ Towers allows me to give you a more personal and timely service.
Location: it is located 4 minutes from Luis Marin International Airport. It is walking distance from all major hotels and restaurants. It is also walking distance to pharmacies and supermarkets. The ESJ Towers is also located right on the beach.
Amenities: The ESJ Towers offers the perfect family vacation. It is kid-friendly with a game room, ping pong, card room, billiards, Olympic sized swimming pool, and a gym. It also offers cooking facilities in the apartment, and laundry facilities in the premises, and reserved parking. There is also a business center, 24 hour front desk service, and a concierge.
Security: The ESJ Towers is known as a very safe place, for guests- and especially for kids. There are security cameras throughout the building, lifeguards in the pool, and friendly and responsible staff. Isla Verde is known as a very tourist friendly and safe place.
Are there Restaurants and Nightlife close by?
ESJ Towers is located in Isla Verde, which is without a doubt the center of the most exciting nightlife in Puerto Rico and perhaps the entire Caribbean. Evening dining, cafes, nightclubs, bars, discos and casinos are available next door to ESJ Towers at El San Juan Hotel & and Casino, where many Hollywood stars go when they want to get away.
Are there any differences between booking this through you and the hotel directly - services sacrificed, etc?
The difference between booking this through us is we offer lower rates than the hotel because our properties are privately owned. Booking directly with me saves you 30-40%. Also, my rooms are carpet-free, for a more hygienic stay. The only service sacrificed is daily cleaning of the unit. Daily cleaning is available when booking through us for an additional charge.
How do I reserve the apartment?
You can contact me directly at 787.791.4423 to reserve the unit, or you could email your phone number and I will call you back. Do not email your credit card number, as email is not a secure communication method. A $200 deposit is required to reserve the apartment. The sum will then be applied to your balance upon arrival. If you pay with Visa or MasterCard, there is a 4% processing fee that will not be refunded.
How do I check-in?
Check-in is through the hotel at the front desk. The key will be in an envelope under your last name. At this time you will get access cards to the hotel pool, fitness center and the beach. You will also get a voucher for free underground assigned parking. If you want room service or charge drinks to your room, you will need to present a credit card during the check-in process.
What else do the Condos include?
The condos include full size refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, kitchen utensils, linens, towels and basic toiletries. Also included is the use of all the hotel amenities like pool, jacuzzi, fitness room, sauna, pool tables, business center and direct access to the beach.
All the units include parking at no extra cost.
When staying at the ESJ Towers if it's better to rent car or to take taxis and public transportation?
Unless you plan on visiting tourist sites on the island a car is not needed. ESJ Towers is walking distance to other popular hotels in Isla Verde, and there are lots of restaurants in the area. You can take the public bus to Old San Juan during the day; it stops in front of the property, and it is 75 cents. If you're going out to party to Old San Juan at night, I highly recommend a TAXI. A taxi to get there would cost around $16. If you want to explore the island, rent a car for the day. You can call Enterprise. They have very competitive prices. They can be reached at 787.253.3299 ext. 108. Request Bernice Lopez, and inform her that you were referred by Chana Cohen for a discount.
