My husband and I grew up in Aguadilla. Our love of Crash Boat Beach brings us back every year. Although, we have family and friends in Aguadilla, Jerry always wanted a place in Puerto Rico that he could call our “home away from home.” When Jerry learned about Puerta del Mar he jumped at the opportunity to purchase a condo with a view of the ocean. We have found it to be the perfect place for family vacations as well as a quiet, relaxing and fun getaway for couples or a group of friends. Our 2 boys absolutely love it there. We have lived in Maryland for 26 years and have vacationed in Aguadilla every year except for one. What was once the playground of our youth is now “a dream” come true and we are so glad that we could share it with you! Liz and Jerry, Maryland
Liz purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Liz chose Borinquen
Life doesn’t get any better than this! Our sub-penthouse overlooks our favorite beach on the island, Crash Boat Beach, which is just a 3 min. drive from the condo. Jerry always dreamt of having a place in Aguadilla with an ocean view from where he could watch the sun set into the ocean at the end of each day. He (and you too) can do this now from the privacy of our sub-penthouse balcony. You can fly into the Raphael Hernandez International Airport (BQN) and in less than 10 minutes you are in “your dream” home away from home. The condo is perfectly situated to explore the northwest and western part of the island. Some of the best beaches on the island are in Aguadilla and its surrounding area. The area is very popular for scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing although other water sports abound. We are pretty familiar with the area and welcome the opportunity to help you plan your stay. In the condo you will find, in addition to tourist magazines, detailed information of area attractions, things to do, places to eat, and more.
What makes this Condo unique
The ocean view from the condo balcony is stunning, every sunset is a captivating sight, the weather’s divine all year round, and the local beaches are better than ever. The view of the whales migrating west during the winter months is definitely a must see. Awarded the 2008 Best Resort-type Living Project in Puerto Rico, Puerta del Mar (Door to the Sea) is an oasis of privacy and lush tropical splendor. You will love the hospitality we provide our guests and the well appointed amenities you will find in the condo. The master suite with its king size bed is an oasis of privacy unto itself. For your convenience we provide beach essentials - towels, cooler, chairs, and more. Our fully equipped kitchen has all the modern conveniences to make meal preparation a pleasure if you choose to cook. The Infinity pool and its surrounding amenities offer all you need to enjoy hours of comfort and relaxation under the sun or shade. Life doesn't get any better than this!

Beautiful condo and awesome views
From the initial booking to our check out everything was perfect. Liz sent lots of information about the area and things to do. The check in process was a delight as her parents met us at the condo and explained everything and told us to call them with any questions or needs we might have. The condo is on the fourth floor(up just one flight from building entrance) so the views from the balcony are so beautiful. Being on the 4th floor means you have a bigger balcony. Lots of comfortable seating. We ate breakfast outside every morning. Never used the lovely and spacious dining table because it was nice eating outside. The condo is furnished with high end decor. The sofa in the TV room was so comfortable. The bedding was also very comfortable. Having a washer and dryer was great. Everything was furnished with a guest comfort in mind. Beach chairs, towels and cooler were an added bonus. We enjoyed our time in Puerta del Mar and Liz's condo and we thank you for all your attention to making this a most fun vacation for us. We hope to return to Puerta del Mar and this will be our first choice for a condo to rent.
Thank you Liz and Aida and Gilbert.
Thank you for sharing your experience renting our condo and for the details included in your review. We are elated that you enjoyed the Puerta del Mar community and our condo.
You were exceptional guests and we look forward to your return. My parents really enjoyed meeting you. As requested, I am including your added comments below.
'When reviewing this beautiful condo, I forgot to include comments about the grounds and pool. I have asked Liz to include it in her reply. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The pool is gorgeous with a beautiful view. There is lots of very comfortable seating. It is very clean. All of Puerta del Mar is a real jewel. Linda H.'
Liz and Jerry
Lovely, spacious and as advertised
Prior to arrival, Liz sent us everything we needed - directions, detailed in/out instructions, amenities, area info, etc. Her parents met us to get in & settled. The condo was perfect for a couple & 2 teens. Super clean and comfy. Well stocked. Appreciated use of the beach chairs, bags, and cooler. We purchased and left a beach umbrella as some beaches have scant shade, esp after Maria. We lost power for about an hour one night, but had flashlights & candles; ended up by the pool to catch the breeze while we waited.. It blipped another 2 times one night. Not totally uncommon but it was fine. Close to lots of shopping and beaches. HIGHLY recommendable condo.
Tip: Driving on PR-2 through all the small towns takes longer than you think. Plan accordingly.
Recommend using TripAdvisor to find restaurants and excursions. But, don’t be afraid of the food trucks! Good PR food! Two gems...Verde Azul Surf Shop on PR-110, for boards/lessons/snorkel rentals (Scott & G were the best!)...The Coffee Spot on PR-110 has awesome breakfast & coffee (tip: pistachio waffles!). Snorkel at Shacks Beach. Swim/surf at Jobos Beach. Dabble in waves or soak up the gorgeousness at hidden Punta Borinquen beach, near the ruins. Our 3rd time in PR, but 1st to west end. Not our last !!
Thank you for your review and informative comments. You were outstanding guests and we look forward to hosting you again.
Our review of you as guests is incorrect. You left our condo in mint condition and recommend you to anyone who you would be seeking to book your stay with.
Beautiful vacation condo
The condo had all the comforts of home. Her dad met us with the keys to the condo. Her parents were happy to accommodate us with any requests we had. The condo was beautifully furnished. The view of the pool and ocean from the balcony was amazing. The condo was clean and well kept. It was a great place to vacation.

The condo was an excellent choice for my time in Aguadilla. It was well equipped and the pictures are true to the property description. The views are incredible and the management team of the property are top notch. Everything went well for our stay there, and I will definitely rent again if the property is available.
Home away from home!!
We're repeat guests, and boy, could I get used to this place. Everything you possibly need is included in this unit, as listed, it is so well maintained and has an incredible vantage point when it comes to the stunning view. Sunsets are breathtaking, and one night a late night thunderstorm in the distance toward Desecheo island provided a nightime light show that was spectacular. The hosts are great, Don Gilbert, even carried one of our luggage pieces up to the unit, even though I insisted he didnt have to. We will definitely be back. THANKS!!!!!
My wife and I recently spent our honeymoon here in Aguadilla. The condo was top notch and everything you would desire for a tropical get away. The views from the back porch are amazing, as well as from the rest of the complex. The condo was more than accommodating with everything from cooking ware to scuba gear and more. A truly great place with reasonable rates.
