Why Pedro Menendez chose Rio Grande

We have this apartment since our daughter and son were months old, they grew up coming almost every weekend, now they have their own family and the keep coming every time they can.

It is a very happy place for us to go for all the memories it keeps, and for the nice time we keep having every time we spend there.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has a beautiful view of the ocean with a lawn in between.

From the balcony at the master bedroom you can even see El Yunque on one side and the beach on the other.

The kitchen is surrounded by the dinning and living room that makes a perfect gathering for friends and family.

You have a lot of fun places , restaurants, golf, hotels, horse ridding, etc. that are a few minutes away.

Very Happy Camper

  • 5 of 5

When we booked this location based on the pictures and description we thought it looked decent and accommodated our primary concern to sleep 4 adults, 3 teens and a tween. However, when we actually entered the apartment we realized the pictures and description don't do it justice. The layout, wrap-around balcony, 3 full baths, huge windows opening towards the ocean were all perfect for two families. The place is bright and kept clean. Have to also commend the hosts for their help checking out local car rental places and being organized with all the required information -- directions, access, property rules, etc. were noted clearly. Simply enjoyed our stay, without having to ask or wonder about anything. Perfect location for visiting El Yunque, Fajardo and Luquillo.

Would give zero stars just to keep this place secret so that it will be available for us next time. But really I would give it 6 stars if possible.

Great location, beautiful beach and clean condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for us, clean, with everything needed (towels, pot and pans, beach chairs, pool, grill, etc.). Gated community very well kept and beautiful landscape. Restaurants, pharmacies and grocery stores are close by. El Yunque rain forest is just a few minutes away. I recommend this location to anybody that is looking for a beautiful beach location. Views of the ocean from balcony are wonderful. Owners very responsive and helpful. You do not have to wake up early to find sand-dollars at the beach!

Fantastic place ... great beach .. kid loved it !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pedro's property for 5 nights. We were a group of two families. The property has 2 spacious bedrooms, a bed room with bunk beds for the kids and very spacious living, kitchen area. The balconies face beach. It has a great view and the nice breeze from the beach is great. We loved spending time here having coffee, beer, falling asleep on chair at night !!

Kids loved the beach .. may be because we visited off season, we had the beach all for ourselves.

Pedro has taken care of everything the guest needs - well stocked kitchen, information a tourist needs etc.

Pedro also have been very helpful and attended to any issues we brought up very quickly.

This place is very close to Rain forests, Zip lines, Luquillo beach, Fajardo etc.

Plenty of great restaurants in the area with great food ..

Please don't forget to checkout the food kiosks at "Kiosko Luquillo" !! we ate there almost every night !!

Fabulous Location and Unit

  • 5 of 5

My family of four(two teenagers) and my mother stayed at this three bedroom/three full bathroom property for a week in April and found it very spacious. We cannot say enough about the great location and Pedro's attentiveness. This unit was extremely clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed and then some. One of the best features is the L shaped lanai with the gorgeous view of the ocean. We had coffee outside each morning and then walked the very short distance to the gorgeous beach. We had one small problem with air conditioning and it was fixed within five hours of me emailing Pedro(which I did at 6:45am and he responded within minutes!) We are already planning our next trip!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults 4 kids) stayed at this property for a week in February. Pedro was extremely helpful as we planned for the trip- answering all our logistical questions in a timely manner. The apartment was exactly as advertised- nothing fancy, but very adequate to meet the needs of 2 families. We enjoyed cooking on the outdoor grill at night and listening to the ocean sounds. The grounds were exquisite. In February, we had the entire beach and pool completely to ourselves. The weather was amazing, the ocean and sands were breathtaking. The beach is steps away from the house and the balcony overlooks the ocean. The pool is well maintained and very close as well. There is even a shallow pool for little ones. This property is located very close to El Yunque and the Luquillo kiosks (both worth visiting!). The property is located within a gated community and there is visible security 24 hours/day. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a beach get away.
