Throughout the apartment, new floor-to-ceiling windows provide a cool ocean breeze and breathtaking views. Ceiling fans also keep the apartment well ventilated so that air-conditioning is not necessarily needed.

The apartment is beautifully furnished. Two air-conditioned bedrooms overlook the ocean, each with full private bath and walk-in closet. (One has a queen size bed and French doors opening onto the balcony; the other has 2 queen beds and a spectacular view of the ocean). A fully equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. The living room has a 40-inch flat screen HD-TV with cable and wireless Internet connections.

Located in front of Building #1, Playa Azul Beach is lovely and not crowded, however, there are no life-guards on duty and the currents can be strong at times. Please be sure to follow the color flag warnings. Beach chairs and beach towels are available in the apartment for your use. If you prefer a beach with calmer water, amenities, parking and lifeguards on duty, the famous Balneario La Monserrate - Luquillo beach is only a 2-minute drive from Playa Azul. Three minutes away, are the renowned 'kioscos of Luqillo' where you can delight in good, authentic local cuisine; otherwise, you can drive a short distance to more upscale restaurants.

The apartment has a guest book with suggestions of where to eat and activities available in the area. You can hike or zip-line in the rain forest, book a snorkel trip, kayak on the bioluminescent bay, scuba dive in Fajardo, rent jet skis at Luquillo beach, go horseback riding, go to casinos at nearby resort hotels or take day-trips to Old San Juan, Ponce, Arecibo or the Camuy Caves.

Why The Owner chose Vilomar

We have been coming to Playa Azul since 1998 for family vacations. We did not want a resort atmosphere and chose Playa Azul because it is quaint and has breathtaking views and pristine beaches.

It is very accessible to neaby points of interests, such as The Rainforest and various activities in Fajardo.

It is within a reasonable driving distance to the airport and San Juan. (40 min.)

It is within walking distance to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Luquillo is a quaint and tranquil little seaside town, uniquely located 30 min. from San Juan International Airport, 10 minutes to El Yunque Rainforest and 10 minutes from Fajardo.

There is a most beautiful walk on the beach, between Playa Azul and Balneario Monserat Luquillo Beach.

Absolutly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This Playa Azul condo was the perfect place for our family during our week vacation to Puerto Rico in August. The condo is well equipped, clean and safe. The complex not only has a gated entrance with a security guard it also has a guard in every building. The location is perfect for numerous excursions - the Bio Bay, Rainforest, and Ferry to the outlaying islands are all within a 20 minute drive. The grocery store is give a take a mile, as is the "Blue Flag" beach Balneario, and the food Kiosks. The beach in front of the complex can have some rather big waves, if looking for calm water Balneario is the place to go. I brought my inflatable paddle board and saw sea turtles right off the beach in the crystal clear water. We utilized the coolers, beach bag, chairs and umbrella provided at the condo.The pool at the complex is huge, and a great place to relax if need a change from the salt water. The views from the balcony were simply amazing, we ate all of our meals out there while listening to the waves and planning the days activities. We cooked most meals and found the kitchen to be well equipped. The quality of the pans were not as good as home but could good enough. I am soooo glad we chose this condo in Tower 1. After talking with others, some who had been to Playa Azul numerous times, all stated this was the place to be. We had an amazing vacation and met some amazing people. We will be back for sure!! Thank you Sonya for being so easy to work with. I look forward to talking to you again soon.

We had a great time staying at the condo! It was very modern and updated. You cannot beat the views from the balcony or the rooms. The building and parking lot was very secure. We would love to come back again.

We just got back from a week long stay at Playa Azul. It was incredible! If we could have stayed longer we would have. The condo is perfect! It's very spacious and had everything that we needed. The beds were comfortable, there was lots of hot water, and the kitchen was well equipped. The view from the balcony was beautiful. It made our day just looking out every morning. And the beach right across the could you complain?! The beach was gorgeous. There were only a few people there each day, so it felt like we had our own private beach. The beach extended in both directions for miles, so we were able to take long walks each day. So beautiful and relaxing! There is a grocery store and pharmacy right across the street, so if you don't want to travel you don't have to. However, if you do want to explore, Luquillo is in a very convenient location to lots of attractions. The owners are extremely kind of helpful. Thank you so much Sonia for all of your recommendations and for having such a lovely place for people to stay! We can't wait to come back next year!

Outstanding condominium!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from ten days in the finest Playa Azul condominium ever! My husband had been coming to Playa Azul condos since the 70's and he says that this one was the finest, by far. It is tastefully decorated with some creative reconfiguring of walls, windows and doors to provide a very airy, bright environment. Our bedroom had a door leading directly to the balcony. Falling asleep to the surf at night is pure heaven! The balcony louvres and railing design provide wind protection but also an unobstructed beautiful view of the water, even when sitting down. All the glowing descriptions of others are true so I won't be redundant here. We have booked for 2017! Need I say more?

Great Condo With Spectacular Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Playa Azul Apartments. We were in Tower I (there are 3 towers). The apt. is on the 12th floor directly overlooking the ocean. It is as nice as the pictures on the internet. Sonia and her husband, , have done a great job decorating. We felt at home as soon as we walked in. The apt. is very clean and comfortable. We never used the air conditioner. We kept the windows open and the fan on. Sonia was extremely helpful . She called every day for the first few days to make sure we were happy. She gave us lots of tips for sightseeing and restaurants to go to. Her husband prepared a big book of restaurants with comments. My husband and I stayed a month at Playa Azul (our first visit). It is a great location - not far from San Juan. Conveniently located to the beach - walk out the back door in the lobby and you are there. We enjoyed our stay so much that we will be back next winter for 2 months. Thank you Sonia for making this a dream vacation.

Fantastic condo for families

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Playa Azul twice before and neither of those condos can hold a candle to this one! The pictures looked fantastic and when I booked it, I hoped that the reality would match. When we walked into the condo it blew my expectations away, this place has been recently updated and looks amazing! I was traveling with my husband and our three boys (13, 3, and 19 months old) The layout of this condo and furnishings work well for a family and the balcony is safe for toddlers. It has a wall halfway up like other units but on the left and right sides (where the furniture is) there are windows for the upper half. This condo is on the 12th floor and I felt very safe with my little ones. The entire complex is secure and very clean. The views are gorgeous and the beach is only an elevator ride away. We have family in Puerto Rico and will definitely be back. I plan to book this condo for all future trips! Thanks Sonia, your condo was perfect for us!
