My husband, myself and sister and brother-in-law spend a month (February 2016) at Lisa and Rays penthouse condo at Aquatika just west of Loiza. The resort was amazing and the grounds were stunning. The pictures do not do justice to this tropical paradise. The condo itself was beautiful, especially the rooftop terrace with bar/bbq. Had our morning coffee and late night drinks there. Lisa and Ray are very responsive to my many pre-vacation questions and were both easy to get along with. During the month of February we pretty much had the whole resort to ourselves other than the weekends when other owners would come to their place. I would very much recommend this property to any of my friends/relatives. Hoping to return in the near future! Thank you Lisa and Ray!!

Great Location, Comfortable, Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Puerto Rico and we could not have been happier. Lisa was happy to answer all my questions as well as had great tips on places to visit. They offered to pick up groceries before our arrival which was very helpful. Ramon met us at the condo and had notified security in advance of our arrival. The apartment had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 teens. A/C worked great and Wifi kept everyone "connected." We enjoyed relaxing on the roof patio in the evenings. Easy walk through the well kept grounds to the beach. There were two grocery stores 10 minutes away and a Walmart about 20 minutes from the condo. The condo was in a perfect location! It was less than an hour to get to San Juan or to Fajardo for all the water sports. We visited the rainforest three times as it was only 15 minutes away and could see it in the distance from the patio. There are many beaches to visit but we loved the private beach located on the property. Being from Kansas, we spent most of our time at the beach and less in the condo pools! (I was able to find shells at the Loiza beach near the condo!)Highlights included grilling outside on the patio and spending evenings together; hiking the rainforest, snorkeling with Spread Eagle located in Fajardo, parasailing, and trying the local cuisine. I did get up early to try and get ferry tickets to Culebra, but it was sold out. The large ferry was not working and the small ferry was limited to 200 people. Buy tickets in advance if you want to go to the island. The snorkeling trip took us to clear water and white beaches!

We would gladly rent from Ramon and Lisa again and hope to pass the word along to other family and friends.

Nice terrace

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a pretty nice experience for our stay.

Terrace was nice to grill and eat dinner at in the evenings. We did have trouble with finding the shower faucet and had to make a call and it was resolved but it would have been helpful to know ahead how that particular faucet worked. The kitchen sink faucet was loose and could have used a replacement.Not a huge deal, but when there is no dishwasher and you are hand washing on vacation a decent faucet is necessary.

Plenty of beach towels and a basketball for the kids as well as mini golf putters.

Spacious unit and it was close to outlets and groceries and Luquillo Beach was about 20 min. away which we went to four out of six days there.

Fabulous stay, rent with total confidence!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico on mid-January 2015, we just can't wait to go back. This property is truly amazing with its rooftop terrace and we really liked the amenities of the Aquatika resort. It is conveniently located, not far from Luquillo beach and El Yunque Forest... decent driving distance from all services. Ray and Lisa are very accomodating, they respond promptly to all inquires and are always ready to assist. I could write a much longer review, but I think all the 5-star reviews written by others are pretty accurate. Just go for it, rent with total confidence... This trip was among our best in the caribbean. You just can't go wrong with Ray and Lisa. Enjoy!

Great rooftop view of New Year's Eve Fireworks

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing week in Puerto Rico to ring in the New Year 2015. Ray and Lisa were wonderful to work with. They provided lots of help prior to arrival including referrals to tour companies. They also knew we were celebrating a milestone birthday and they had a cheese cake in the refrigerator for our celebration on arrival. They also made sure we had a Pack and Play, a high chair and lots of toys (both indoor and outdoor varieties). The condo looked exactly as portrayed in the pictures. The air conditioner was not working well in one of the bedrooms and Ray came with the service techs and installed a completely new unit. We loved both the main living space (third floor walk up) but also enjoyed the terrace and outdoor kitchen on the fourth floor. We grilled several times and brought in groceries a couple of times from the Ralph's about 10 minutes away. The grounds at Aquatika are wonderfully groomed. We played in the main pool by the amenities center as well as the lazy river right outside the door of the condo. We have fun hunting for iguana's on the property. They were good at hiding in the bushes and were hard to spot. The location of Aquatika (and this condo) is great for trips to EL Junque, the local national park with a rain forest. Our group went there two days. It is also convenient to go to the beach (here and also Luquillo (with the Kioskos). We also did a moonlight cruise on a catamaran and the kayak tour of the bioluminescent bay out of Fajardo which is only about 25 minutes away. A pleasant vacation awaits at this condo.

Perfect family condo.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my family of 3 kids 16, 15 and 2 years old and my in laws. Place was clean and the area facilities are awesome the beach in aquatica is more calm the other beaches in the area. You do need a car to get around. The home owners were very helpful from the day I reserved the apartment. I will consider staying again here on my next vacation.

.Aquatika is a private enclosed walk up condo complex located in the town of Loiza on the north eastern side of Puerto Rico. It is ideally suited for going to nearby beautiful beaches, some of the best golf courses, snorkeling, boating and El Yunque Rainforest. It is a 5 minute to 30 minute drive away from all of these types of activities.

Aquatika itself is ideally suited for families with children because of it’s many swimming pools and small beach at the end of the complex. There is also tennis, mini golf, playground and gazebos to relax and enjoy all surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Great jumping point to go to nearby islands such as Culebra and Vieques for the day or go snorkeling in Fajardo
