Recent San Juan Area reviews

  • We never wanted to leave

    "This condo was excellent. If anything, the description falls short of the reality. My partner and I stayed here for seven nights. The condo is clean and perfectly stocked, and the location is as beautiful as you can dream up. First, the location--it's on Isla Verde, which is one of the San Juan beaches. It's close to Old San Juan and Pinones, and has just about everything you could want, from casinos to resorts to food, and even a Walgreens that sells everything, including rum, within walking distance, so you could have a great stay without a car. It is on the beach, and the beach here is less crowded than Condado or Ocean Park, the two beaches closer to San Juan. The sand was clean and the water incredibly clear, with some gentle waves most days. There were jet ski rentals further up the beach, but they are kept separate from the swimming. It was a beautiful location--we even saw a couple of iguanas around the common areas. In the bigger picture, it was just moments from a main highway that could take you to any other part of the island, so it's a good base to explore from. We caught the Vieques ferry, climbed Toro Negro, and watched a sunset in Aquadilla, all using the condo as our base. And there is a 24 hour car rental directly across the street, in case you want to rent a car at two in the morning. The condo itself is immaculate. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen very functional and well stocked on dishes and utensils, including blenders and salad spinners. The shower was immaculate, and was the strongest I've found on the island. The towels provided were of great quality. And the view was stunning. The picture can't quite capture it. We spent a lot of time just standing on the balcony staring out to sea, or down at the beach. There was Internet and television. The condo was even decorated well, and had lots of pamphlets and guides on stuff to do. There is a lot of talk about security on Puerto Rico, but there were no concerns here. The condo had security for the building and the parking garage, and we never felt concerned. The owners were excellent communicators, and made everything easy, too. I'd easily recommend this place."

  • Great for the Price!

    "We stayed at the studio for 1 week was great for us considering we just need the room for sleeping and showering, its not the Ritz so if your looking for luxury your not going to find it here. One thing the room could use is a coffee maker a must for me. Location was great close to the beach and restaurants and right next to the Ritz and if your going to go to the beach id travel closer to the Ritz side as it seems they keep there beach groomed all year long were as the ESJ Tower and El San Juan Resort does not lots of sea weed!!! (not just on the beach but in the water too) Plato's restaurant nearby very good Puerto Rican Cuisine and Piu Bello also has great breakfast and Gelato. The staff at the Apartment was very friendly Isabel I believe is the caretaker and very accommodating as well as Karen who is also very friendly and helpful which makes this location a 4 star for sure."

  • Perfect Choice

    "Staying at Malibu Condo Rentals was the perfect choice for our group of 4. the location outside of San Juan allowed us to enjoy the sites and activities in the metro area but have a pleasant retreat at the end of the day. The condo was very comfortable, clean and attractive. It was great to have the pool/patio area for relaxing and the adjacent beach seemed like it was our own private piece of paradise. Visitors definitely need to have a rental car in order to take advantage of all the island's attractions and amenities. All in all the only downside I can think of is that we had to leave!"

  • Simply Wonderful!

    "Our family of 4 (two adults, 2 teen boys) escaped the winter snow in the northeast and spent 5 nights at the Tropical Jewel. This property is owned by a lovely, caring, very helpful and responsive owner, Yvonne. The condo is perfectly situated facing the ocean. The photos on the site are accurate but the view from the sliding glass doors is something you need to experience for yourself! With the glass doors of the main living area open we felt like we were literally on the beach. What an amazing treat to have that view all day. The location of the condo is ideal; 10 minutes from the San Juan airport, in walking distance from restuarants, markets, liquor stores, convenenience stores, an ice cream shop, the car rental place, the El San Juan Hotel and Casino, the Water Beach Club and so much more. You do not really need to have a car if you stay here. There are taxis always available and the local bus is inexpensive and is close by. We did end up renting a jeep for one day and exploring the El Yunque rainforest and the easternmost tip of the island. There are 3 restaurants located directly underneath the condo. Our boys loved being able to get their own food and drinks and take it out on the beach. I recommend the strawberry mojitos at El Alambique! There are air conditioning units in each of the bedrooms which made sleeping pleasant and helped to drown out the sounds of pigeons who like to congregate near the window and coo early in the morning. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. We ate breakfasts and lunches at the condo and typically went out for dinners. In addition to El Yunque, we took a day trip to Old San Juan where we toured El Morro and soaked in the sights and sounds of the town. We would highly recommend dinner at AquaViva in Old San Juan. We would definitely recommend this property friends and relatives. We felt safe and secure with the condo security system and were happy to have a local contact, Francisco, (the owner's property manager) in the case of any questions or emergency that may come up. Overall, this is great property, is a very good value and has everything you could need to enjoy the beauty of Isla Verde and beyond."
