  • Perfect vacation!

    "Our family of 4 stayed for a week and had a fantastic time! This was our first trip to PR and we debated about staying in San Juan, Rincon, or Fajardo. Fajardo was a good pick because it is near a lot of activities. It’s quiet and right near ocean, but with enough amenities nearby to be comfortable. On the drive from the airport you will pass a wide variety of areas. Pena Mar Ocean Club will be everything you expected and is in a nice area. It is also gated, extremely well maintained, and occupied by a good mix of full time residents and vacationers. Luisa’s apartment is excellent and just as advertised. It is nicely decorated, spacious, comfortable, quiet, and with a nice ocean view from the patio. Everything was sparkling clean. In the morning you can see the sun come up over the water and view of the marina - very picturesque. We were up early every day and too tired to do much at night, so having use of the facilities at Pena Mar was perfect. The basketball court and pools kept our teenagers entertained, and everyone appreciated having the WiFi, flat screens, and comforts of home. There is no food on site so be prepared to get groceries which are about 15 minutes away and not difficult to find. Luisa provides a very detailed book with local recommendations. If you want to try some of the paid tours it’s a good idea to go online and book when you first arrive or in advance. We tried and recommend the East Wind catamaran trip; Pure Adventure Biobay kayaking tour; Carabali Ranch; and Camuy Caves. Our favorite trip was a day trip on the SS Tobias to snorkel off of Culebra. Luisa also knows a local tour guide/driver for day trips. We did this for the Camuy trip and highly recommend."

  • Our stay at Villa La Jolla, Los Encantos Ambergris Caye, Belize

    "Our family of 6 spent six nights at Vila La Jolla. I can simply describe the overall stay as a phenomenal family vacation with the property, locale and amenities all meeting or exceeding our expectations. We found this property on VRBO via a simple search that included our preferred dates and rooming requirements. Once we found that the property was available, we contacted the owner Sally with specific questions on the location and the property and were amazed at the prompt (and now we know genuinely warm) response. She described the property, the room set up, the amenities and general aspects of the location. She did not oversell the property. Once we decided on the property and dates, the transaction with the property managers was seamless. Closer to the dates, we reached back to Sally and Trish (property manager) with now a barrage of questions. Again, within a few hours, Sally responded to all our questions (with Trish filling in the gaps) and this helped us prepare for our trip - as a family, we wanted a nice mix of R&R at the home and balancing it with local activities and nightlife on the island. There were no surprises. We were picked up at the ferry dock (Belize to San Pedro water taxi), taken shopping in town for key provisions (yes, Belikin beer!) and ferried across the island on a short 15 min boat ride to the dock at Los Encantos. We were met at the dock by Sergio and Raquel, the housekeepers, and shown to the house with all of the features explained. It is a beautiful house and a wonderful property. The house overlooks the water and property has a beautiful salt-water pool that the family all enjoyed after a busy day out-and-about and before dinner. Speaking of dinner, we had Raquel cook us two incredible meals with both Belizian and Creole flair. One night we had Genie, the fisherman who took us fishing and snorkeling, cook us our catch and that in itself was a restaurant-quality dinner. We would recommend this property to all our friends and family. It is wonderfully maintained, has all the amenities and very helpful owners and housekeepers. A very good wireless connection (we all made a pledge to go connection-less on this vacation), satellite TV (yes, we did watch the World Cup) and excellent cooking facilities with all the utensils and gadgets. We wish we had stayed longer but we do have some wonderful photographs and memories. We look forward to going back here."

  • Perfect in every way

    "We stayed for 8 nights on our snorkeling vacation and would definitely recommend. The property exceeded our expectations. The bay is beautiful, fun to watch occasional boats come and go, and although it is a grassy and sandy bottom here the visibility was good enough to go for a quick dip here every morning and check in on our ‘locals’ which included starfish, spiny lobsters and a variety of fish. Check out the fish under the pier at The Pools next door. We snorkeled round to Starfish point and back. Our boys used the pool most days and it was always quiet. Stroll a few steps along the beach to the Yacht club for lunch, dinner or cocktails. The condo itself was excellently maintained and equipped, nicely decorated (ocean themed) and very comfortable. Our son slept on the aero bed the first night and would not give it up. It was superior to any sleeper sofa we have previously encountered. There is no dining table - just a breakfast bar - but we ate outside on the porch all the time. We loved the view from the living room and master bedroom/porch and we appreciated being on the quieter part of the island as opposed to 7-mile beach. It was sheltered compared to the north side, but there was still a constant pleasant warm breeze. The owners offered helpful suggestions on the best places nearby to go snorkeling. One of our favorites was the drift snorkel at Cayman Kai public beach, less than a 10 minute drive away."
