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!

Great centralized location in Old San Juan

  • 3 of 5

The only downside was 3 flights of stairs.

Luckily, we are pretty fit so it wasn't a problem.

The size of the washing machine was an unexpected & welcomed surprise.

You can pick up single packets of detergent at the SuperMax grocery store on Calle de la Cruz just a quick walk away.

The air conditioner in the bedroom isn't strong enough to cool the place down when it's really hot but did a wonderful job of allowing us to sleep very comfortably!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our apartment for your stay and for leaving your feedback. As stated in the description, the apartment is located on the fourth floor and there is no elevator. Most buildings in Old San Juan do not have elevators. As advertised, there is only AC in the bedroom and it is not meant to be used to cool the entire apartment. It only takes minutes to cool the bedroom and, when the balcony doors and windows in the living room are open, there is a pleasant cross breeze that comes off of the bay which cools the space considerably.

Just perfect for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Well-maintained and comfortable condo in a very handy location in Old San Juan. Everything in walking distance. Very secure, clean, well-equipped, and modern.

Luis met us with a smile, and generously offered advice on restaurants, sites, parking, and attractions.

A great introduction to Old San Juan. Highly Recommended.

Perfect location for exploring Old Town San Juan!

  • 5 of 5

Olivia's apartment was perfect for our short trip to San Juan. It's removed enough from the main area of Old Town San Juan to not be too noisy, but it's still close enough to easily explore the entire area. Olivia made the booking easy and Luis and Mara were very helpful (and so friendly!) when we arrived. We got to watch the cruise ships take off while we sipped cool beers in the evening. We would absolutely stay here again and will recommend it to everyone we know planning a trip to San Juan. Thanks so much, Olivia, Luis, and Mara!

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.
