About Nora Bertucci

I own 5 apartments in condominium Marbella del Caribe. I take excellent care of them, along with my caretaker, Esperanza. I travel to Puerto Rico every month from New York and stay in a different condo each time so that I can make sure they are all in excellent condition and are fully equipped and everything is in good condition. I have a reputation in and around Marbella as having the best apartments. I take great pride in these apartments and always want to make sure they are as advertised (in fact most people say that they exceed expectations).

Nora Bertucci purchased this condo in 1990

Why Nora Bertucci chose San Juan Area

I've been going to Puerto Rico since 1968. I've stayed in many condos and hotels along the Isla Verde and Condado Tourist areas. I find Condominium Marbella del Caribe to be the best, by far. In fact, I've owned an apartment in another condo/hotel, but sold it so I could have all of my units in Condominium Marbella because they are the best kept and the staff are always friendly and helpful. In addition, we are right on the best part of the beach.

What makes this condo unique

1. A quick flight from mainland U.S.

2. Part of the U.S. so no worries about foreign government, currency, etc. and no passport needed from the U.S.

3. Beautiful weather every day of the year. Average temp is 87 in the summer and 82 in the winter.

4. Clean and comfortable apartments that are well kept and updated often.

5. Isla Verde Beach is the most beautiful beach in San Juan and it is right out the back door. In addition, this location offers something for everyone...whether it be a quite vacation, or one with exciting night life, or one that offers wonderful tourists attractions, this condo is for you.

Beautiful view every Morning!

  • 4 of 5

It was my first time renting from HomeAway. My experience was really good! Nora was very attentive with all my questions and concerns prior and during my stay. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures, and acomidated my family of 4 comfortably. The view on the balcony every morning was breathtaking!!!

Location- right on the beach and near a ton of restaurants and shops, about 20 min to Old Sanjuan and 10 min to Condado.

The pool on the premises was the best we pretty much had the pool all to ourselves during our stay.

Wifi was strong and fast on all our devices.

I didn't give the 5th star for a couple of reasons;

1.The master bedroom bed was hard and makes noise.

2. The air conditioner takes awhile to cool the apartment.

Other than that the apartment was perfect for our stay.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, niece and I loved staying at Nora's condo and we had a fantastic vacation. Nora is a great host - very responsive, the place is comfortable, bright, and clean, and the view of the Atlantic Ocean is amazing. We hope to come back again soon. Thank you Nora.

Clean accommodations with beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the condo and our visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico. The unit was very clean and the fifteenth floor provided a beautiful oceanfront view.

Everything was provided that we needed and any additional supplies desired could be purchased in nearby stores.

We would not hesitate to rent this unit again, when we decide to return to San Juan.

Great location, comfortable condo!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great -- gorgeous views, safe, and comfortable with all of the needed amenities. Loved the location and enjoyed the walking distance to nearby shops & restaurants. Beautiful beach and the water was spectacular! Overall we had a lovely vacation - enjoying nice breakfasts in the condo (quick walk to nearby grocery or convenient stores) and going out for dinners nearby. There were only two disappointments -- one was the pool. The pool is closed on Mondays, has a very limited supply of lounge chairs which are bolted to the ground so you cannot move with the sun or closer to a table and often there was no place to sit at all. In addition, there is no food or beverage allowed at the pool. When you have an 11-year old that wants to swim for a while, snacks and drinks are typically the norm to have on hand. As a result, we only used the pool a couple of times for very short durations. The second disappointment related to check-out -- I did not think to check in advance about luggage storage as our flight was late afternoon and we really wanted to enjoy the beach for a few hours with the airport being so close (check-out is 11am). Unfortunately, there was no place to leave our things. I recommend planning ahead and either extend your stay by one day, rent a vehicle so you can leave your things in your car (we didn't need one) or in our case, last minute Uber to a nearby hotel to store luggage, grab a quick bite, swim, etc. Otherwise, we had a fabulous stay!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you liked the condo and the area, but sorry that everything was not perfect for your stay. This is not a hotel, so some of the amenities of a hotel, such as storing luggage, are not available. Check out is by 11 a.m. because the cleaning people need time to clean the apartment and get everything ready for the next renters who arrive at 3 p.m. the same day. Regarding the pool closing and bolted down chairs, many of the owners (including myself) have been complaining to the administration about both of those issues. We do hope to have it changed in the near future. Usually, there is an ample supply of pool chairs (and a few that are not bolted down). However, because you were there during a holiday week, it was very crowded. That only happens during the few holiday weeks during the year (Christmas, Presidents' Week, Easter/Passover). There is no food allowed inside the pool area for sanitary reasons. As the saying goes, "Every rule has someone's name on it." Unfortunately, too many people left a mess around the pool area (and even in the water) of food particles, wrappers, etc. Therefore, no food is allowed. There are picnic tables just beyond the pool where you can eat. While it may be inconvenient, it is better to have a clean pool and surrounding area.
