Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at this rental, that's how much we love it! We used to stay at the Rio Mar but once we started staying here, we were hooked. Now I can't imagine a better place to spend a week enjoying the beautiful island of Puerto Rico!

The condo is super clean and stocked with a full kitchen. There is also a grill on the balcony which overlooks the pool. Several grocery stores are within a short driving distance making it easy to buy your food for the week. We also made use of several redboxes in the area and the dvd player for family movie nights!

The BEST part of this condo is the location. Although the weekends might be busy, during the week the complex is basically empty. Each year we've had the pool and beach to ourselves, which is priceless! I can't imagine a more peaceful and fun family vacation!

Other perks: the rental provides all the beach and pool supplies you could possibly need and there is a washer and dryer so you can literally pack light. (A huge plus when traveling with children!)

Last, Jorge and Maria couldn't be easier to work with! Each time we've rented I've found both extremely responsive to all of my questions and concerns. I five-star recommend this rental! Enjoy your trip!

Good place for a family

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this villa by the beach. It is not the Ritz so if you want something fancy then stay somewhere else. That said it was perfect for our family of 5. Our kids loved the bunk beds. It had everything we needed-blow dryer, beach towels, wine opener, plus much more!. The price was fair and we felt safe.

There is no wi fi in the unit but we would sit out on the front steps and could pick up the signal from the clubhouse which is right out the front door.

We were only here for 3 days so we did not get a chance to use the pool. We were always on the run checking out the area. The beach here seemed kind of rough when we were there though, I did see some people swimming one day. We went to Luquillo where the water is very calm. Liquillo is less than 10 min away. The rainforest is great. Make sure to take the tour out of the Palo Colorado station. Highly recommend the bioluminescent bay kayak trip. No experience needed and is about a half hour away. Also recommend the fort in Old San Juan. Really cool!

Based on another review we went to Richies Restaurant nearby. It was expensive and the food was just okay for the cost. We were recommended by some locals to go to Antijitos for good Puerto Rican food but, it was closed the day we were going to go (Tuesdays for dinner) so, we went to Don Pablos instead for some local fare and we enjoyed it very much. Both of these restaurants are close to the condo.

All in all we had a good time and I would definately recommend this condo for its location, amenities and safety.

Great place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

After being a bit nervous about booking an apartment online for vacation, I was so relieved to find the place exactly as described. It was perfectly clean, had all of the items we needed, and was very roomy and comfortable. It was just a short walk to an almost private beach, the pool was just downstairs, and parking was right in front of the unit. Everything was convenient. Even the security guards were very helpful and friendly. We had wonderful weather and enjoyed just having the windows open and hearing the birds and coqui in the mornings. Thank you for making your apartment available. It was exactly what we needed.

We have previously stayed at the Westin Rio Mar and had an incredible experience. Because we were traveling with our two young children (ages 2 and 4) on this trip, we decided to rent a condo instead. I was not disappointed! We had an amazing time staying at this condo. It was SUPER clean and stocked with EVERYTHING you might need for your stay. The beach chairs were awesome and we took the cooler to the beach everyday stocked with lunch, beer, and water. The complex is pristine and located right on the beach. There are several adorable towns nearby and we spent our days at the pool/beach and visited a town square each evening. You have a beautiful view from the porch of the courtyard pools and we spent every morning and evening enjoying the ocean breeze on the balcony. I also LOVED having a grill, washer/dryer, and kitchen. I didn't miss the resort experience at all and am already planning a stay at this condo next year. Gracias, Maria y Jorge!

Very quiet complex

  • 3 of 5

Two couples stayed at this unit for four days after a cruise, December 26 to 30th. It was clean and quiet. The beach was not safe for swimming, due to undertow and high surf. Signs were posted on the beach warning people not to enter the water. The bunk beds were very uncomfortable, mainly due to the plastic covering the mattress and pillows. There are at least two iguannas that live in the tree by the entry guard house, one was over 18 inches long and a beauty. We enjoyed the visit to the rain forest and the swim in the bio bay that left our of Fajardo.

Owner's Response: During the week previous to your arrival and the week during your stay severe weather conditions (lots of rain and wind) affected the island which created the high surf you experienced. During these events, a sign is posted in the beach as a precautionary advice to the people who want to enter the beach, unfortunately weather is something out of our control. With regards to the plastic covering the bunk beds, theyre used to protect the mattress but mainly to maintain a clean environment for our guests. I hope you were able to see the community police personnel feeding the iguannas, it is an extraordinary experience.
