You can't beat this condo!!!!!
You can't beat this condo!!!!!
Gorgeous view! Comfortable accommodations! Condo pools are awesome...the infinity pool is great! You can't beat the price for what you are getting. I spent most of my time at the condo sitting on the balcony staring at the small marina & ocean. Please be aware that there is no air conditioning in the living areas (bedrooms have air conditioning). It was very warm & humid during our stay and quite warm in condo. Average temp was 82-83 inside. We adjusted but if you do not do well with no air conditioning (respiratory issues or just hate heat) then you may not enjoy this. But there are ceiling fans & can keep doors open for cross breeze. But Puerto Rico is hot & humid so it is to be expected!!! Have NOTHING bad to say about our stay & working with Fernando. All 4 of us loved the condo. You always take a risk booking via VRBO & you rely on reviews.....we give it 5 stars!!! Even the beach towels & chairs provided were great and appreciated. They even have a basket of emergency supplies in case you forgot toiletries, etc. Fernando even touched base with us during our stay to see if we needed anything. We ABSOLUTELY recommend this property. Enjoy!!!!!

Owner response: Thanks Leigh we appreciate your review a lot and we are happy to know that you enjoy your trip. We will re-evaluate the option of install an air conditioning for the living area in the near future and thanks for your inputs.
We arrived in PR late Wednesday evening, Flash and his wife met us at the terminal. The rental car company took forever, but they waited patiently for us to finish. We followed them to the condo (we had a caravan of three cars) and we fell in love!! There was a bottle of red wine waiting for us, and I instantly knew we were going to have a great vacation! Flash and his wife showed us around the condo and I must say that the pics do this condo no justice at all. They have definitely thought of everything you need to make this feel like a home away from home! There are several stores within close proximity of the condo, but please check all the closets and cabinets before buying anything, because they most likely have it already. The balcony/ocean view had to be our favorite part. The decoration/furniture was very modern. We spent most of our time out here! You can see the marina and the boats coming in and out daily. The breeze was amazing. The outdoor grill made it possible for us to cook majority of our meals. The kids were very comfortable with their room. They "camped" out in the bunk beds, had a blast with the Wii and the games, and had a great time building sandcastles at the beach. The older kids enjoyed using the touchscreen computer to update their social media to keep their friends posted on their vacation...all things provided in this condo! Flash was always a phone call away if we needed anything and he left us with tons of flyers/brochures/other info for quick referencing. We needed another week to stay in PR to do all of the activities we needed to do. We will be returning soon and will only stay here from now on! You will not be disappointed at all.

Owner response: Thanks Ty, we do everything we can to let your enjoy your most important asset on a trip "Quality Time", Been lost for hours trying to find the Condo rented after a long flight with a hungry family its not the best way to start a vacation and we enjoy escort our new guests on every trip. Thanks for take care of the condo! Look forward to host you again in the future! Fernando "flash" Melendez
The condo owners met us at the car rental booth, just like they said they would. Then they escorted us all the way to their condo. Right to the parking spot! Upon entering the condo, we were immediately impressed! The photos provided for this condo don't give it justice. It is more beautiful in person!!! When we walked into the unit, there were 2 dozen roses and a bottle of our favorite liquor, just as my husband had requested. Again, beautiful! The condo was very clean and comfortable and it had everything one could want in a vacation home. I particularly enjoyed having the stacked washer and dryer right in the condo. Very convenient! Fernando and Mercedes have forgotten nothing in their rental condo! They even have a large binder they have assembled with all kinds of tips and directions and restaurants. Very helpful and useful. The safety and security of their condo was incredible. The views from the balcony, overlooking the marina in Fajardo, were spectacular !! We truly thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Puerto Rico. Staying at this condo was the best! After seeing, in person, the other rental options available in San Juan, we were thrilled that we found Fernando's condo at Pena Del Mar Ocean Club!

The owner is the best! They met us at the car rental to lead us to the condo. We landed at 11:55 at night and they didn't leave our condo until 2am when we were all out of questions! They were great at explaining everything we asked about the condo and about Puerto Rico. The condo was perfect for our 3 teenagers and their parents. The swimming pools, eating breakfast on the balcony overlooking the marina, there was plenty of room, it was just a great place to stay.

Love the view

Fajardo is very beautiful and Fernando's condo is central to all tourist locations. The apartment has a beautiful view and is very comfortable. Fernando and his wife met us when we arrived at the car rental. We had an issue with the car rental and Fernando was kind enough to take us to the correct location which was not at the airport. Once we obtained our rental, we followed Fernando and his wife to his condo. They were very pleasant and made me and my family feel like we were at home. The condo has 24-hour security. It is a safe place which was a plus when you're traveling overseas. I strongly recommend this rental for anyone that want to have the home away from home feeling especially dealing with owners like Fernando. We definitely will contact them again in the near future!

Wonderful Condo, Perfect Location!
Wonderful Condo, Perfect Location!
The main reason I picked this place was because Fernando accepts PayPal payments. I had seen documentaries on TV warning tourist about vacation rentals and I felt safer using PayPal. Fernando sent an official PayPal invoice with all the terms for our stay. The second reason was because of the tennis courts, 2 of our 5 guests love to play. EVERYTHING in this listing is just as described. It is the only building in Pena Mar that provides a full, east facing, view of the ocean. Fernando sent us easy to follow directions on how to get to Pena Mar, he and his wife met us at the condo, greeted us with a bottle of Bacardi, and gave us a walk through of the place. The condo was stocked toiletries, beach chairs, coolers you can fill with ice from the ice maker, & condiments. Fernando has a binder full of pamphlets on all kinds of tours/activities/attractions, nearby restaurants, & a ferry schedule. There are also links to all these on the computer in the condo. Fernando has really gone the extra mile, and then some, to make your stay at Pena Mar as memorable as possible. The ferries to the islands of Culebra and Vieques leave out of Fajardo. You should buy your tickets in advance. You can take cars on the ferries, but again, reserve in advance! We went to Vieques. We met a wonderful family on the ferry that caught us up on local history. They even had a friend of theirs pick us up at the Vieques dock, took us to a local restaurant called Shawnaa's, food was Excellent, then dropped us off at the beach. To get back to the ferry, we just stood at the side of the road and flagged down a local driver. The average fee is $3 per person. Vieques also has what's considered the brightest Bioluminescent Bay in PR. The tours start at night, and the last ferry leaves at 6pm, so If you want to visit it you will either have to stay on the island over night, or you can eliminate the need for a ferry by taking one of the many private tours from the main Island that will take you to Vieques then back to the main island after the Bio Bay tour. And again, I can not stress this enough, book your Bio Bay tour in advance! Most of these places were booked up to several months in advance. El Yunque National Forest is very close to the condo. I didn't even know the US had a rainforest until I researched things to do in PR. Bring bathing suits & towels to the rainforest, there are some AWESOME waterfalls you can go in.

Fajardo is the best place to stay in PR, Pena Mar is the best place to stay in Fajardo, and this is the best condo in Pena Mar! Our family (3 kids - teens and a preschooler) stayed for a week and loved it. The large balcony looking out over the marina was my favorite place while my boys loved the video games. Situated so closely to everything we wanted to do, the location was perfect. Fernando came and helped us find the place when our GPS wanted us to "take a shortcut" and showed us around. He was very helpful leading up to our visit as well, emailing restaurant suggestions and ideas for things to do in the area. The exercise room is nicely equipped and the large pool next to it was good. We had a lovely time and would definitely return here.

A real home away from home, very spacious, great location on the island, owners very helpful. We suggest trying the seafood grill at the marina...Definately recommend, will return, we were 6 people (3 generations) everyone was happy. The hardest part was comming back to the cold and snow... (but need more cash to come back again ..)

Luxury ocean view condo exceeds expections!
Luxury ocean view condo exceeds expections!
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Fernando's Pena Mar Ocean Club condo. After researching Puerto Rico, we decided to stay in Fajardo. The nicest accomodations appeared to be at the Pena Mar Ocean Club. After comparing a handful of condos at Pena Mar, we decided to take a chance on this one - we clearly made the right choice! My wife and I have been to Cancun, Cozumel, Florida, and Aruba, and have stayed in various mid to high end hotels and condos, this was the nicest of them all! I feel very confident with this review because we have stayed in quite a few places and have a lot of experience to compare this place to. The area was very safe and there was never a time we didn't feel safe driving or walking. Just the same, we liked the gated security entrace, keyed building, and 3rd floor unit height. There are roughly half a dozen buildings that make up the Pena Mar Ocean Club and strangely only one bulding directly facing the ocean and harbor - the one we stayed in! Set back quite a bit from the main road, the views in the pictures are the views you get. In fact, in person, you are much closer to the ocean and marinas than the pictures suggest. We were able to sit on the balcony or look out our master bedroom window and see/hear boats coming and going from the 2 nearby marinas - we are boaters and it doesn't get old! The condo is well appointed with great furniture, a 50" flat screen TV, WiFi, Dish TV, HP touchscreen computer with Windows 8, many tables and chairs, a fully stocked kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, 3 bedrooms with air conditioners, ceiling fans, remote control front door, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers of differenty types and sizes, sunscreen (if we needed it), toilettries (if we forgot something) and an 8' X 20' outdoor balcony which is furnished as pictured. The automatic ice maker was great, we were able to bag some ice, and always had enough ice to fill the coolers! The stackable washer and drier worked great. The balcony was the largest of any place we have seen or stayed! Two double sliders open up to provide amazing cross breezes! Every night we had all the windows and doors open with great breezes and amazingly no bugs! This listing was fairly new and naturally we were a little nervous booking. After meeting Fernando and his wife and having the pleasure to stay at his condo, our nerves soon disappeared. The night we arrived there was a bottle of Bacardi Rum waiting for us! Awesome time!

Why the Owner Chose Fajardo:
Far and near of the metropolitan area, the best of both worlds..Enjoy the nature of the country like islands, forest, beaches but with access by highway to San Juan for history, stores, discos, old San Juan galleries and museums in about an hour by car. This property is one of the few with a complete ocean view, does not matter if you are in the Living Room, Kitchen, Dinning, Master Bedroom, Balcony you will never loose the view....just two apartments per floor with elevator and we are on a third floor
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The facilities are top of the line and compare with resorts that we had been on the states but we personally take care of this one, its our second home today and hopefully our first in a near future...just opened for rent December 2012.
