Why Magda Arroyo chose Cangrejo Arriba
Beach living is different than city living. Yet this property has all you want in a property. Beach in one side, tourist area on the next and right in the middle of the city. The tranquility of nature combined with the action of a tourist area makes this place ideal for vacation and retirement like us.
What makes this Apartment unique
This first floor cabana with it's parking right next to it, no need to use an elevator, the accessibility of a house with the ease of an apartment. What else can you expect from a cozy romantic all white apartment, newly remodeled and furnished. Beach front bldg with direct access to the immense beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. Right in front of the Marine Reserve specially beautiful for snorkeling. At Pine Grove Beach, many amenities are just walking distance, Jet ski rentals, surf boards and classes, snorkeling gear etc., all rentals right in our backyard. All you need is a little black dress, a bathing suit, flip flops, hat and lots of sunblock.

Very modern and clean condo, and great owners to work with!
This condo is located very close to the beach and just minutes from the airport - very convenient and easily accessible. Magda was terrific - our flight was delayed and we didn’t end up arriving until 11 pm, and she still was there to guide our taxi to the door and show us around. The condo seems recently renovated, so everything is super clean and modern. Couldn’t have asked for a better place or experience!
Gracias Chris. Hope to see you return sometime. Thank you for visiting.
Perfect for Work, Very Modern
The best part of the place were my hosts, Magda and Julio. They were so attentive and caring. You will love the modern, very upgraded condo with just about covers everything. Right on the beach and a very short, few steps to the Marriott Courtyard for restaurants and a casino. Just wished I could have stayed longer. Book it. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you David. Really hoped you would stay longer, more than happy to see you come back. And thank you for all your help to our island. Hasta luego.
Location, location, location
Hosts were wonderful and welcoming--meeting us and providing a tour of the condo and common areas. Located an easy drive from the airport and about 20 min to Old San Juan. The condo is light and bright. Quite comfortable with furnishings, ceiling fans and a/c. Loved the bathroom!! The beach access is amazing. Great to walk next-door to the Marriott for dining or just laying on the beach.
Condo has everything you need for your stay and clear information provided.
The noise from the airport is quite loud (as others have mentioned), but does seem to be less at night.
Per the owner's info, we used Jerry's Adventures while we were there--HIGHLY recommend this! jerrysadventures.com
The condo could not have been in a better place! It is 5 minutes from the airport, 2 minutes from a grocery store, and sits with the beach as its back yard! The condo was fully equipped with all the essentials to cook, bathe, to go to the beach, and more (cooking oil, seasonings, paper towels, beach towels, beach chairs, beach bag, sun screen, bug spray, & more)! We are a family of 4, and we fit comfortably. However, there is only one restroom, and it's in the bedroom, which makes this condo not completely ideal when more than 2 people stay here. I would definitely recommend people to stay here, as I would love to return to Puerto Rico and stay here again!
Magda and Julio could not have done anymore to make our stay any more pleasant. The stay was quite nice. It was very nice to walk down the hall and be on the beach. The bed was very comfortable. The apartment was very nice and was as advertised.
