Gorgeous views of the Cruise Ships
It is a great location in Old San Juan within walking distance of all the major sites of the old city. It was wonderful looking out of the balcony on the dates the cruise ships were in town. Loved the resident cats in the area....made me feel at home, since I have 8 cats. The works of art in the apartment are fabulous....Arrana is now one of my favorite artists. The owner of the condo is his son. He was so welcoming and charming....a true Puerto Rican gentleman!
Great location, loved having the option of fan or AC in bedroom. It had everything we needed and we didn’t miss a TV. Internet was available, but we didn’t try it. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Our host Luis gave us a warm welcome on our arrival and showed us around the unit. Loved the view from the balcony!
Not worth the frustrations
There was no Wi-Fi as advertised. Owner would not return phone calls. Got the owner on the phone once to ask how to access the Wi-Fi. He said he had to go and never called back. It was impossible to contact the owner. I would get a recording in Spanish that would not allow me to leave a message. We had to go downtown to the local Starbucks to get online. We could not adequately plan our trip without a journey to find an internet connection.
The floors were filthy. Wiped up some water in bedroom and the towel was blackened. Paid a cleaning fee and it looked like it would not be used for cleaning.
Great view and location but not worth the frustrations.
I'm very sorry you had a frustrating experience at La Puntilla. I wish you had tried to contact me as well about the issues you were having. You had two contact people but you only reached out to one who was, unfortunately, busy at the time of your call. This is the first I hear about the trouble you were having with the internet. While we do pay for and provide Wifi internet service, we are at the whim of the cable company which has, unfortunately, been providing spotty service from time to time since the hurricane. Not all services are working optimally just yet. We do hope that during this long recovery period our guests can be understanding. That being said, I would have gladly spent the time to try to get the internet working if you had called my number or emailed me.
Regarding the cleaning fee, the apartment is always cleaned BEFORE and AFTER each guest's stay. While the floors can collect dust from the windows being left open, I'm sure the rest of the apartment was spotless for your stay since we had just scheduled a deep clean of the apartment right before your arrival.
It is unfortunate to receive such a negative review when both issues could have been addressed with better communication. I hope our guests realize that negative reviews such as these really affect our business during a time when small businesses are already hurting throughout the entire island. We work hard to provide an honest and good quality service.
This apartment is awesome! Enjoyed our stay greatly! Hope to stay here again!
We initially only planed on a short visit to Puerto Rico so we decided to stay at La Puntilla . My Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this well set up apartment. The location worked out so well for us that we ended up staying almost three weeks here! We loved it so much! Comfortable bed well set up apartment and great breezes and views! Yes it is on the 4th floor but the stairs did not bother us! It was a great location to explore Viejo San Juan! Hope to stay here again in the future! Olivia and her father Luis were great to talk to! Luis was very helpful as he is the one you meet . Thank you to them for the use of there beautiful place! ❤️🇵�🇷� And no issues with water or electric when we were there .
This property was great! Conveniently located within walking distance to everything yet in a very quiet neighborhood. Luis was very welcoming and very accommodating, he allowed us to keep our luggage in the condo until our cruise departed the day we checked out. The condo had everything we needed. We loved the balcony and opening up all the windows to let the breeze in. We would definitely rent again!
Old San Juan has a very vibrant night life. There are a wide variety of restaurants and bars to choose from which stay open relatively late. Some streets in Old San Juan tend to be noisy because of this, but La Puntilla is located on a quiet, securely guarded dead-end street which allows for restful nights. Other city beaches such as Condado Beach, Ocean Park and Isla Verde are about a 15 minute drive and are also accessible by bus. Enjoy Puerto Rico's bounty of natural wonders all within driving distance of Old San Juan, such as El Yunque National Rain Forest where you will find many hiking trails and waterfalls; Puerto Rico's caves, Las Cuevas de Camuy, one of the largest cave systems in the world (tours are available); and much, much more.
