This beautiful, newly renovated apartment is located on the 12th floor of Playa Azul, building #1 which has the best panoramic view of the 3 buildings in the Playa Azul complex. 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 brand new dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. The living room has a 40-inch flat screen HD-TV with cable and wireless Internet connections.
Amenities on the premises include: Private parking lots, an Olympic-size swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts. There is 24-hour security at the front gate and lobby. Supermarket, pharmacy and bank with an ATM are available within walking distance or a short drive away.
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 careful. 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.

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.
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 Luquillo Beach.
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?
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.
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!
My parents, my husband and 1 year old loved staying here. The view is spectacular and the place is very clean. The beds were very comfortable. We had everything we needed and could walk along the beach to some local restaurants that were fantastic. There was also a pool for both adults and kids, so if you want the option to stay at the pool instead, you have that also. The entrance is gated and the doors to the complex are locked and a security guard is onsite, but we never felt in any danger. Only a short drive to El Yunque for hiking and Fajardo for the Bio luminescent bay. The only negative was trying to find the rental place to sign the contract. It is close but not at the location you are staying and not very obvious. We also had trouble trying to figure out where to leave the key, but the security guard helped and all was well.
Condo is not only beautiful on the inside; really tastefully done- with everything you need- but also right on the Ocean with a breathtaking view. We (Daughters and Son) enjoyed every minute starting with Coffee on the Balcony looking at the ocean, then sleeping to the waves breaking all night! not to mention immediate on Property access to the beaches. The Building is also very clean and well regulated. There is also an abudance of things to do nearby as well as a short drive (45-50mins) to San Juan. The Owners also provide a reference book of attractions. I recommend the nearby Catamarans found within 15-25 mins for a day trip. Please note it is an easy drive from the airport- which has car rental on premise. Also the Owners were very accomodating! This was a great experience and vacation- I already plan on coming back next year and highly recommend this Condo.
Wonderful place! Everything is exactly as it is seen on the pictures.
Everything was ready when we arrived so there were no delays or issues.
We were party of 4 and we have plenty of room inside the condo as well as on a balcony.
The Balcony/porch deserves special thanks - It is priceless!
Even on the rainy/windy (Puerto Rico style Windy Day) you could have a dinner on a balcony and enjoy every second of it!
I would definitely stay here again and will recommend this place to all my friends.
