Jorge Rossello revitalizes Courtyard by Marriott Isla Verde Resort

Courtyard by Marriott Isla Verde Beach Resort, the beach-front hotel destination in the Isla Verde section of San Juan, Puerto Rico announced a $32-million renovation that will see the addition of a new oceanfront bar and lounge. The renovation will also focus on guestroom enhancements, including upgrading of bathrooms, living space and décor. Slated for completion by November 2013, the property refresh will also include upgrades to the resort's ballroom, public spaces and casino.

The resort will invest between $12,000 to $15,000 toward each of the 260 guestrooms and suites, updating them to include all-new furniture, curtains, bedding and bathrooms. The bathrooms will be upgraded with glass-walled showers and modern sinks. The One Bedroom Ocean Front Suites and Junior Ocean Front Suites will also receive upgraded wet bar areas with new cabinetry, floors and appliances.

The renovation also will enhance the guest arrival experience by modernizing the entrance and lobby, creating more open spaces, adding water fountains and increasing natural light. The resort will also transform many of the public spaces by updating guest floor landings and hallways, enlarging the pool area and re-carpeting, redecorating and installing new lighting in the Casino del Sol.
