The property was well located and Antonio is a great property manager

  • 5 of 5

Unit has had some updating, close to Pool and wifi. The location is an easy drive to the rain forest, San Juan and the caves, all of which we did. Good local restaurants. We are already talking about our next trip to PR and will stay here if it's available.

Overall a pleasant place to stay

  • 3 of 5

I really enjoyed Antonios villa. It's cute, clean and has that beachy feeling we were looking for. My only suggestions are to provide more than one set of keys n fab for the property so guests don't have to rely so much on each other and do exactly the same thing or walk each other in n out of beach and pool area. Remind guests it's required to wear the pool braclets. We were asked to leave the pool area by security because we had no idea we needed bracelets. We found them eventually but not a fun situation to be in on vacation. Lastly, while Antonio did provide some beach chairs we didn't take them to the beach because he explained the lounge chairs that were on the beach were ok for us to use, when in fact we found out the hard way that they are for the Embassy Suites guests. Their security guard let us know about that. Another unpleasant available sceanario.

Overall It's a nice place to stay :)

Puerto Rico Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to PR and we decided to stay outside of San Juan. We chose Dorado, and the town is great, the vacation rental is excellent in a gated community. The place is a 2 minute drive from the main street in a gated community and then when entering the Villa, there is a second gated community. The property is very peaceful, and everything is clean on the property and the house is excellent with everything you will need. I recommend this property for all types of vacations, family is great, and for couples is also excellent. you have two beach access from the property both walking distance. You wake up to ocean view on both bedrooms.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Villas de Playa. Dorado is a nice town with great places to eat, and not far from San Juan if you want to go into the city. We spent time at the pool and the beach as well as relaxing on the patio. There is a grocery store approx 5 minute drive away, so we had a good mix of meals on our own and great restaurants to choose from nearby.
