An inviting extra comfy chaise lounge and leather chair makes the DVD collection (movies and concerts) much more enjoyable, complete with 54' Plasma TV, BluRay and Surround Sound.

Why consider our 'Marbella' Unit ??: If you have decided to visit Puerto Rico for vacation or for business, know that you are only ten (10) minutes away from the Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) and the Punta Borinquen Golf Course (public course) that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and lends to great golfing and beautiful views. The Aguadilla Water Park, Indoor Skating Rink, Mayaguez Mall (the largest on the West Coast), supermarkets and many restaurants (local, fast food and national chains) are also very close. Crashboat Beach is visible from your terrace, as are the Continental, JetBlue, and Spirit Air flights as they descend towards BQN Airport. Front-row, unobstructed terrace views of spectacular sunsets are priceless !!! In the winter, be on the lookout for whales as they migrate to warmer waters. We have provided a First Aid Kit for any minor boo-boos you may encounter. The Aguadilla Walgreen's is five (5) minutes away; the Mayaguez Walgreen's (open 24/7) is only twenty (20) minutes away.For an emergency, Hospital Buen Samaritano (Good Samaritan) is on Route #2, about ten (10) minutes away.

Sun, Sea, Sand Accommodations Second to None!

  • 5 of 5

Though born in San Juan and now residing Stateside, Aguadilla was "home." During my Dad's 29-year military career, we left and returned to Aguadilla numerous times, and upon Dad's retirement, settled in the community once again. My review presents the perspective of a "local" since I know the area and all it has to offer. On my last few trips to Aguadilla, I observed with interest the building of the Puerta del Mar complex and discussed with my daughters that the developers had selected prime real estate overlooking the ocean. My parents lived a short 3-4 minute drive from Crashboat Beach, so we always had a place to stay. That changed with my parents' passing.

Puerta del Mar became a reality to us when presented with the need for accommodations near my parents' home. Bert and Edgar's condo is in prime location, immaculately clean, beautifully furnished in modern design, and tastefully decorated by two men who missed their calling to be in the home design and decorating industry! You enter and the mind goes into "relax" mode. Bert and Edgar have taken care of the minutest details to make your stay an unforgettable experience. Two bottles of red wine and an elegantly-set table welcomed us into the dining room--a classy touch! Everything, short of groceries, was provided. It is evident Bert and Edgar take pride in their home away from home, and want every guest to feel welcome. Their detailed contract left no question unanswered.

The personal care we experienced before, during, and after our stay is noteworthy. Bert and his family made certain we had everything we needed, even a brand new high chair and a Pack and Play for my 10-month old granddaughter! Additionally, Bert and his daughter insured the high-speed internet connection was operational, a work-related necessity for us. Bert called numerous times to insure all was in order. Under the circumstances of our trip, he also called to inquire how we were doing. That kindness and personal concern has carried through even after our return. Bert's wife also telephoned to insure all was okay with the baby furniture. This is Customer Service above and beyond all expectations. We established a special bond/relationship from our stay, and can't wait for our next visit.

You need not leave the premises of Puerta del Mar for an enjoyable, relaxing, and rejuvenating get-away; but, I suggest getting out and exploring the Island.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND these two amazing hosts--Bert and Edgar, and their condo.

Owner's Response: "Mi casa es su casa" are words that most of us have read or heard at some point in our lives. While they convey a sense of "welcome" and "make yourself at home", these words are not taken lightly for the guests of the "Marbella" unit at Puerta Del Mar. In effect, living up to this expectation is our mission. When a guest chooses to stay at our property, they are trusting us with their vacation, their family and loved ones. As such, they are treated like family and they can expect this personal touch. We thank you for your Review and the kind sentiments you have expressed. We look forward to a future visit when you can stay under better circumstances. Thank you.....mil gracias, Bert

My family and I had an amazing experience in Bert's home - we felt like we were at home. Bert provide A+ service and treat us like royalty! The condo was immaculate and supplied with everything to make a very comfortable stay. The view is breathtaking in the balcony to the infinity pool -Just an overall amazing experience! I have already recommended several of my friends to book Bert's property because it's just perfect. My family not only gained an amazing experience but also a genuine friend... thank you Bert for everything!

Spacious & Well Kept With Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this apartment for our first visit to Aguadilla. The views from the apartment were beautiful and the apartment was the most spacious and well kept condo we have ever stayed in while visiting the Carribean. The condo complex grounds were also well kept and the infinity pool view of the sea was awesome!

The owners were very nice and accommodating. They went above and beyond to ensure we had a nice stay.

Crash Boat beach is a short five minute drive from the complex. We loved how friendly everyone was in the area. We enjoyed visiting Isabella, the waterfalls and the radio telescope observatory. We look forward to our next visit.

Everything and More...we loved our 3 month stay !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was for 3month the winter of 2016 and we woke up each day pinching ourselves...the condo was perfect, Bert was always there to answer any questions. The neighbors are delightful. The accommodations fit our needs, so clean and comfortable. The gated community is very safe and the surrounding area provides great beaches, shopping and touring experiences. I Highly recommend Puerta Del Mar as a destination with Bert as your contact.

Owner's Response: Pinching yourselves ?? What a description. :) Sophia, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit such a nice Review. For those sitting on the fence trying to decide which unit to rent in Puerta Del Mar, I think your words express a sentiment of confidence. For me, it was a pleasure to host you, your Mom, and your sisters. Feel free to call our space home, for our doors will all-ways be open to you. Send my love and appreciation to Betty. Ciao, Bert.

Everything was exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long stay at this condo in PR. It was our first time in PR and we loved it. The owner was very engaged with us throughout the process. Unfortunately, the infinity pool at the condo (which was gorgeous), was closed the entire week for repairs. Crashboat beach (which is very close) was a great alternative and supposedly the nicest beach for swimmers. The food at the local restaurants was superb (Marina's, Eclipse, Zazone, La Vista Smokehouse Restaurant, Levain Bakery, D'Rose Chocolate Factory). We found the people of Aguadilla to be some of the friendliest. They were most helpful and kind as our Spanish was very limited. We would definitely recommend this condo and Aguadilla!

Owner's Response: Janet, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to host you and your crew during your first visit to Puerto Rico. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope that one day you will return to enjoy the Infinity Pool. I am envious that you got to restaurants that we have never been to; it seems like you enjoyed them all. Thank you, once again. Regards, Bert

Arrive at this private, gated, resort-style community and you'll soon forget the daily grind back home. Your escape to our 'Marbella' unit in Puerta Del Mar will be an unforgetable one. Here, 'mi casa es su casa' is re-defined in this Mediterranean-style complex perched 300' above the Atlantic Ocean, in full view from your private terrace. Located in the northwest corner of this 100x35 mile tropical paradise in the beach, surfing and fishing town of Aguadilla (a-gwah-DEE-yah), Puerta Del Mar is an award winning complex that joins other nearby ocean front towns in comprising the west coast region known as Porta Del Sol. It is here where Puerto Rico's most beautiful sunsets are showcased at every dusk, where the moon glistens over the calm ripples of the majestic Atlantic Ocean and where the local 'coqui' (miniature island frogs) sing into the night bringing closure to your first day. Your inner most vibes tell you, 'this will be a special vacation'. Read below; there IS more to know....

Other Activities: Deep Sea Fishing, Water Park, Jet Skiing, Paddle Boats, Kayaking
