Recent Puerto Rico reviews

  • Can't beat the view!

    "We loved our vacation in this villa. The view from back and side windows (it is a corner unit overlooking the water) is unbelievable and the property is very convenient to the beach and beach bar. The Beach Village section and Palmas Del Mar resort itself, is great with plenty of amenities. We sat on the beach in the sun, swam in the waves (we walked further down the beach to swim; the beach adjacent to Beach Village had red flags our entire stay, but the area 400 yards away was clear to swim- beautiful water), played tennis and worked out in the gym (extra fee involved for both), and rented a golf cart to ride around the entire resort. The resort's location is convenient to off site excursions, we spent a day hiking the rain forest, drove to Fajardo for the Miniboat snorkeling tours through Kayaking Puerto Rico (two thumbs way way up for this tour, can't remember when our family laughed so hard; this tour was a vacation highlight by far!!!), and drove to a tour to kayak the bioluminescent bay (used Yokahu Kayak Trips, fun guides). For the condo itself: The villa is a very spacious, with two bedrooms plus a loft area, plenty of room for our family of four (two teenagers). The kitchen is pretty well equipped, with decent quality pans, blender, . . . all of the basic necessities. We cooked all of our meals here (shout out to Puerto Rico's version of Whole Foods, "FreshMart" REALLY difficult to find, but worth it to stock up on your way to the resort). The view (did I mention the view?) is better in person than in the pictures. Postcard worthy. When we arrived, the AC did not work, resulting in water leaks in the bathrooms, but the management company was extremely quick in fixing everything and a pleasure to deal with (thanks Rebecca for all of your help!). Very nice people. The unit is older, but the owner is obviously freshening it up (villa runs true to the pictures). We were here during Spring Break, Easter week, yet it didn't feel crowded at all (only hint that it was a popular holiday was the number of golf carts zipping around). Many thanks to the management company and the owner, we had a wonderful vacation!"

  • Family vacation

    "Amazing! If you are going to rent in aquatika you must rent from cathy and yamil. They were so helpful from the minute we arrived in PR. They met us at the car rental and we followed them to aquatika. They were also available throughout our stay to answer any questions or trip ideas that we had. The rental was clean and they provided us with toys for my children to play with at aquatika. Best vacation ever! Highly recommend!"

  • What a great villa

    "Just returned from a wonderful beach side villa for three weeks. Antonio was an excellent host. He met me at the villa showed me around and made me feel very comfortable. I had asked him for his recommendations on beaches and within 24 hours he had sent me a text with everything that I needed. Antonio was ready to answer any questions that I had. The fact that I was able to use the beach and chairs at the Embassy Suites made this an extremely accommodating place. The neighbors were extremely welcoming and made me feel right at home. To wake up every morning to have my morning coffee with a magnificent view of the ocean was spectacular. The villa was extremely clean upon my arrival. You are approximately 35 minutes from San Juan but honestly there is so much to see and do east of Dorado. The town is only a couple of minutes drive from the villa with good restaurants, grocery stores, and drug stores. I am already looking forward to going back next year."

  • Fantastic owner, even better location, wonderful condo - our family of 4 LOVED it

    "All the detailed reviews helped me choose this condo, so I wanted to pay it forward. My family and I (including 2 kids, 14 and 3) had a sublime spring break vacation in Puerto Rico, and having this condo as our home base was wonderful. As others have said, Ita is an incredibly kind, caring, and responsive owner. Her niece, Linda, is also a delight to communicate with - they answered all my questions before arrival promptly and were happy to accommodate our late-arriving flight. Ita even came out to the corner as we made our way from the airport to guide us into the secure underground parking garage. This was after 11 p.m. on a Thursday night. She could not have been more delightful. It takes about 2 minutes to walk from the condo to Condado beach. This was a boon as we needed to return "home" for bathroom breaks for the 3-yr-old but it didn't mean having to cut our time at the beach short - we just turned around and went right back. The waves are strong, so it's not a swimming beach (lots of experienced body surfers, though) but my kids loved bracing themselves against the waves and building sand castles. The condo itself is light, airy, spacious, beautifully (and functionally) decorated, and it is incredibly well-stocked. We found everything we needed - tons of beach towels, laundry detergent, a soft-sided cooler that was perfect for bringing our frozen water bottles to the beach or the rainforest. The well-appointed kitchen had all the appliances and pots/pans I needed to make a couple of dinners as well as all of our breakfasts. Ita supplied bottled water as well as a Brita water pitcher, and even stocked 2 kinds of milk for the kids before we arrived. We also appreciated the bottle of wine and the chocolates she provided, and we availed ourselves of the roll of quarters to catch the bus to/from Old San Juan. We used our car for excursions farther afield: day trips to Fajardo with its calm beaches and El Yunque. We all slept well - the beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms' air-conditioning works VERY well (we often turned it off and just opened the windows to catch the breeze). The blackout shades do a good job of minimizing the morning light. There are flat screen TVs in 3 rooms but we never turned them on - too much to do, day and night! The location right along Ashford Ave. meant that we could walk to drinks/dinner/ice cream. Very low-stress. We would recommend this property wholeheartedly and hope to return!"
