Find your personal paradise at Aquatika. This beautiful condominium complex is the perfect place to escape to for those looking for something other than the hustle and bustle of the main tourist zones. Aquatika offers guests a tranquil setting right on the Atlantic coast. Walk out the complex gate to the beach and crashing waves and take it all in. The Aquatika complex fronts the Atlantic Ocean and allows for direct beach access. Loiza's beaches are beautiful, with comfortable sand and clear, warm waters. Grab one of the beach chairs and your towel and head here for a day of fun and sun.

Inside the gates, Aquatika offers guests a wide range of vacation pursuits. The development features multiple pool areas, including warm and cool jacuzzis, basketball courts, mini-golf, tennis courts, volleyball court, soccer court, sunning and lounging areas, children's playgrounds, shaded seating areas and ample green space. If your stay includes a weekend, spend a day (or two!) at Aquatika's main pool area, which comes alive on Saturdays and Sundays. A full-sized water slide provides countless hours of fun for kids of all ages. Grab one of our inflatable floats and head further down the complex where a winding river pool awaits. Beach-side gazebos and BBQ grills provide the perfect setting for an afternoon cookout, or make use of our electric grill on our private terrace for a more private experience. The grounds display lush tropical plantings, palm trees and flowers.

The main club house area provides guests with a pool and covered terrace with outdoor seating and a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean.

About Jeff Rekett

I'm a Chicago native working in the health care field. My family and I enjoy traveling to warm climates, especially when the long cold winter has taken its toll on us. Puerto Rico captured our attention a few years back and we decided to purchase a vacation home on the island. We have thoroughly loved making our home warm and comfortable for our own enjoyment and that of our guests. For us, Aquatika is a place to relax and rejuvenate and to get to know another culture.

Jeff Rekett purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jeff Rekett chose Loiza

Aquatika provides the feeling of a fine hotel property but with the comfort of condominium living. Warm crystal clear pools, ocean and beach access, basketball, tennis, volleyball, soccer and mini golf all on site provide hours and hours of fun for everyone. Located just 30 minutes east of the airport and accessible by highway or scenic route, Aquatika is in a prime location to venture out and explore many of the island's attractions.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy morning strolls around the complex enjoying all of the beautiful flowers and plants, encountering the occasional iguana along our way. The beautiful Atlantic ocean is a short walk down the walking path from our unit and whether we want to take a swim or simply take in the view, it's great having it so close. A hop in the car and a short drive away we find everything we need, from grocery stores to restaurants, to fine shopping. The main tourist areas and attractions are not far either. Our unit is one of the penthouses, the largest unit available at Aquatika. Besides offering two floors of expanded indoor space, our unit features a very large outside terrace. The terrace is partially covered, allowing this space to be enjoyed throughout the day, even under the hot afternoon sun.

Great Family Oriented Resort/Condo

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was great from beginning to end. Jeff was very responsive and answered all of my questions right away. He really made the booking process easy for a first timer like myself. JC was a great help as well once we arrived. We stayed 9 days and had an amazing time. The condo has plenty of space for everyone and all of the amenities you could need. The property is very well cared for as well. Great landscaping and beautiful private beach. The only day the beach was crowded was 4th of July but, that's to be expected on a holiday. The locals were great and there were tons of great places to eat nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

Plenty of space, quiet resort and Jeff really provides all you need at the condo.

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 5 to PR for the first time this year. This was our first experience using peer to peer rental services. It was a great experience. Jeff and JC do a great job. We were really pleased and if we ever return would revisit.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Family of five had a very nice stay here. The area is wonderful and we made good use of the tennis court, football filed, swimming pools and the beach. The host was very friendly and helpful. Can highly recommend this place.

Great Space for a Family

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time with two college daughters and my husband during March Spring Break. The Condo is in very good condition and the gated community is very secure. The only issue we had was with the two DVD players and smart TV in the condo. We brought a lot of DVDs that we wanted to use in the evenings and neither DVD player worked. We had property manager stop by the next day who acknowledged one was broken but got the other one going but couldn't explain how he did this and we never could get it to work rest of week. Likewise, we tried to sign on to Netflix via the smart TV and that also did not work. Luckily, we had a laptop and signed in via the laptop that we then plugged into the TV. Both my husband and daughter are quite tech savvy (both are engineers) so this may be a challenge for others that visit this unit and want to watch DVD players/use their subscription accounts.

Every spacious, clean, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Loved the unit and the location even though it was a little far from some of our activities. I enjoyed not being in a tourist spot. It is steeps from the beach. 15 min from El Yunque 30 from San Juan. JC was a great help. The 6 of us stayed and there was so much room. The roof top deck was our favorite spot to hang out at night. Would go back.

Clean, Beautiful, Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Loved the penthouse upper patio! Pool and hot tub was fabulous. Lots of fun amenities on the resort like tennis, putt putt, and beach volleyball. Would like to come back with our kids. Only negatives are not many restaurants close by, deck around pool is loose gravel and must wear shoes, water slide and lazy river is only on during weekends, and lounge chairs need replaced. Minor issues though. Overall really enjoyed the resort and will come back.
