About Judith Santa-Rivera

I am a retired elementary school teacher who grew up in the Bronx, N.Y. My parents were born and raised in Puerto Rico and moved to New York to give me and my 4 siblings a better life. I was raised in the Puerto Rican culture and life-style. I so loved my culture that I learned about Puerto Rican culture and History in school. I have traveled to Puerto Rico often and have always wanted to own property in Puerto Rico. In 2012, my dream came true when I purchase my beautiful condo in Puerta Del Mar, in Aguadilla, P.R. I am so proud of my condo. It is beautifully decorated and the culture of Puerto Rico is evident through out the apartment from the beautiful tropical colors to the Puerto Rican paintings and artwork.

Judith Santa-Rivera purchased this condo in 2012

Why Judith Santa-Rivera chose Borinquen

I bought this property because I live in New York, where the Winters are very cold and snowy. I wanted a second property in Puerto Rico, a place that is beautiful, with warm weather and great beaches. I was drawn to this condo by its beautiful resort look and its closeness to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefits that you will enjoy is the beautiful view from the balcony. You will also love the personal touches that I have added to my home. Paintings and artwork of the Puerto Rican culture is reflected throughout the apartment. The media room has a Puerto Rican music theme. Paintings of Puerto Rican musical instruments and a guitar decorate the walls.

We had a great time on a family trip here. Grounds are very nice with lots of great amenities provided.

Definately need to rent a car but most everything is a short drive away. Went to a different beach almost everyday Isabella was our favorite!

What can i say, I had, had a very rough couple of month in chicago preparing for the move and the caring of my fragil mom. During our travel we had encounter some flight issues Ord-Jfk . (Nightmare)! But finally made our flg Back to Aguadilla , Puerto Rico. Sad to say ,but at the arrival at aguadilla airport another upset. No porter to help us with all our luggage. Ugh!,, so got our car rental. That was fast! And off we went for a 4:30 am breezy ride to Puerta del Mar (8min) we were exhausted, my sister & I just took our overnight bags and wheeled mom to the complex. We open the door with the instruction given to us personally by Judith (owener)and we were breathless... Everything was very nice and clean and very well prepare for our stay there. To tired,we all just went to bed. But , when we woke up 9:30am Wow!!! We were dedazzeled . I want to thank Judith & her husband for the special attention she gave us. Our stay was for one week ,we ended up there for 3 spectacular weeks. Our home was not ready... But ,Judith place sure made us feel like we were home. As days went by Judith & I develope a friendship via text and calls & messaging. I felt like i was family and she was making sure we were comfortable and ok with what was going on weather wise. She was concern about us. And i thank her with all my heart. This will be my second homeaway from home from now on. I can go on and on. But i can't this is suppose to be a review not a book! Lol. To all that will stay here i please ask you too take care of her beautiful place. It is not a hotel it is a wonderful home away from your home. Love it ,take care of it and enjoy all its surrounding for it is breathtaking !

Judith & Joaquin , Thank you for your outstanding place💞

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This unit is just a few minuets drive to the beautiful crash boat beach, the #2 and lots of area attractions. The property is quiet and very secure with security, cameras and a gate. The infinity pool is beautiful and the kiddie pool was a nice addition too. There is also a basketball court just outside the gate. The grounds are very clean and attractive. The unit itself is located down one flight of stairs from the parking area. The condo is very clean, spacious and decorated nicely. We loved that there are privacy doors that allow the tv room to become an extra bedroom (it is still open on one side to the hallway though so not completely private). The owner provides plenty of towels and linens, the kitchen is fully stocked and there are several beach chairs, toys, coolers, games, movies, Ihome doc etc. There are even flip flops if you forget yours. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony listening to the coquis at night. Judith was really easy to communicate with and very helpful in planning our stay. We hope to return again soon!

wow what a nice place everything was as discribed

  • 4 of 5

nice place to stay looking for future vacations for next year and will defiantly look to rebook this unit for a week next time. Very nice décor . We looked at a few of the other units and boy some of them were over the top with the Caribbean décor. We did a road trip everyday so didn't use the pool . did not find a hot tub. The drive from San Juan seemed long was about and hour and 20 minutes. Would like to see the owner put a restaurant booklet together as we found it hard to find a nice place to eat other then fast food which seemed to be on every corner. need a place to stay on San Juan and don't mind driving then this is a great place.
