About Patricia Lopez

I am a Dr. in Optometry. I am married and have a girl of 3 years old, she is my life. My husband has a 13 and a 16 yr old daughter.

Why Patricia Lopez chose Las Croabas

This ample apartment is a special place that we acquired to enjoy with family and friends. We relax and disconnect ourselves from work and the big city life. Even thou you have everything close by (stores, supermarket, etc.) it is like being in another place. The 7 Seas area in Fajardo is well know for its lovely beaches and the Natural Reserve of Las Cabezas with the bioluminicent bay.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a relaxing place with the most beautiful beaches and I enjoy the ocean view from the apartment. We just walk about 200 meters and my feet can feel the sand and then the warm blue water. The complex is small, neighbors are nice, and it’s really in front of the beach. The town is small and the people are very friendly . We have a lot of activities and restaurants within walking distance.

Great location and well equipped!

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the location of the this condo. Easy access to the pool and beach! Restaurants, Wal-Mart and grocery stores are close by. We loved that the owner let us use the beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, cooler, and umbrella. That saves a huge expense as a vacationer. The kitchen was also very well equipped with everything we needed. Some small things that we found that could improve the condo were air conditioning in the living area, although I believe it is not something they do, as most Puerto Rican's enjoy the open air. The condo also had a smell of something spicy being cooked, not a bad smell, but we bought air fresheners and spray and left those in the condo for future use. The sofa wasn't the most comfortable and the cushions seemed pretty worn, but we weren't inside that much so it didn't have too much affect on us. We also would have enjoyed TV's being in the bedrooms. I also want to add that the pool is smaller in person than it looks in the pictures. Overall, we give these owners and their condo an A+ and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nicely furnished place!

Palma Vista

  • 4 of 5

Best value on VRBO for this location. Great hosts, great location. The only reason this gets a 4 and not a 5 is because while it has A/C in all the rooms, the living area does not. My mom did not seem to care; however, I spent a lot of time in the living area and kitchen and it was very hot. I think it would be worth mentioning on the listing that the main living area does not have its' own A/C.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at the amount of space and everything was well stocked and clean and worked. All of our instructions were clear and we had no trouble figuring anything out. The balcony was great and we rarely dealt with any bugs when we were out there during the evening (which was great because we were out there chatting nearly every evening). We arrived on Easter weekend and it was busy, but not overly crowded. Most of the remainder of the week it almost felt like we had the whole complex and beach to ourselves. It was still peaceful and quiet even when it was busy. The location was great with a beach across the street and we enjoyed the pool and all the people we met were friendly and we felt very safe. It was a great base for exploring Laguna Grande to see the bioluminescense and visit El Yunque and Loquillo Beach. We enjoyed many of the local restaurants and foods. My son and I loved the games - Checkers, Monopoly, Dominos, India (we call it Parcheesi). The old Monopoly set was from the same era as at my Grandparent's beach house in Delaware - very nostalgic for me. There were a few travel books there that helped add to the information we had from the books we brought. There were other great resources for information right there for us - a little thing that was very helpful. There was plenty to do and we look forward to coming back again someday. We felt very at home and were very appreciative of having such a nice place to stay. Thank you for opening your beach home to us!

Comfortable stay near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This well-apportioned condo in the gated community of Palma Vista is a comfortable stay on the northeast coast of Puerto Rico. Patricia and her father are available for questions and concerns. Beautiful pool area and walk across the street to the Seven Seas beach.

The condo does border the very busy road which is the access to the beach, and on the weekends expect loud music and crowds. However, with the air conditioning units on in the bedrooms, we did not find the noise overly bothersome. Close to Fajardo ferry and small downtown, try Rustica for great pizza!
