Guestbook comments from the owner

Pros: Beautiful view of the entirety of Isla Verde. Probably the closest balcony to the beach, with room for 4 to eat breakfast overlooking the beach. Very clean, satisfying my picky wife! Everything we needed, including blender, hair dryer, high-quality paper goods, linens, dishes, etc. Comfortable beds, even the pull-out. We had plenty of hot water for four showers in a row! Mark was very welcoming and prompt. The building and parking felt very secure. The resort next door had providers of beach chairs and water sport activities on the beach, so we went parasailing one day. Cons: Lots of seaweed on the beach and in the water at this end, but we just walked down a few hundred feet to find a cleaner spot. No substantial curtains to darken the living room, but the kids slept fine in the morning with the sunlight and wave sounds coming in. Driving directions were a bit hard to follow with a bunch of one-way streets to get to the building. Prepare your route better than I did and don't miss the turn onto Rte 26!. No outlet in the bathroom, so hair drying had to be done elsewhere. The nearby resort beach bar was closed during the week, but Walgreens 3 blocks away sells liquor (and just about everything else). Overall, a fantastic stay which I would highly recommend.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from 10 days in Mark's apartment. Awesome! Great location overlooking Isla Verde beach. Coffee and drinks on the balcony, a nice get away from the beach. The beach is beautiful, clean, and great for swimming and watersports. Everything you need within walking distance. The apartment is perfect for 2, easy to keep clean, with everything you need. Mark was easy to work with, and very helpful.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We're just back from an extended weekend in PR from NY....and this APT is perfect! Mark was great and even met us even though we didn't land until almost midnight. The apt is very comfortable and the location is ideal - right in the middle of town - and right on the beach. Really, all good and reasonable and will be back for sure. Thanks for everything, Mark!

Apartment made it the best family vacation so far!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a week in Puerto Rico for Spring Break. We were a family of three travelling with our four year old. If you are familiar with a four year old boy you probably know how hard it is to get them to sit down and relax. Reinita Del Mar honestly made that possible. My son would spend hours just sitting at the balcony looking out at the water. This apartment has an amazing location an elevator ride away from the beach. My son just came up for nap time most days and spent mornings, afternoons and evenings playing downstairs. For once it was not hard to get him to get back to the room on vacation as the apartment felt like an extension of the beach. Having a bathroom close to the beach (did not even have to take the elevator up) meant we could also relax and actually have a vacation. We spent three days just relaxing at the beach and if you have a four year old you do know how that is close to impossible. When we wanted to explore the island we just walked over to the car rental place nearby and everything was close enough. The apartment is walking distance from some really family friendly restaurants and we had fun enjoying Puerto Rican food a walking distance away. The apartment was also well equipped with pots and pans and we could pick up groceries from the stores nearby(yes, walking distance away with a kid). Overall this apartment was a great find for us. Mark was great to work with and very responsive. Rosa came over to let us in and was waiting for us at the gate even though she apparently gave birth to a girl just a week later. We cannot recommend enough the apartment amenities (beachfront, pool, ease of cooking) and location close to everything. Most of all the relaxation we were able to enjoy at this place was priceless. Thanks Mark and Rosa.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back yesterday from spending 4 nights and we had a great time! It is hard to top where I live (St John, USVI), but this little gem was the perfect getaway! I was concerned about the size cause we were 2 single women that like our space, but it was not an issue. My friend stayed in the bedroom and I used the pullout in the living room where I could have the sliders wide open and hear the waves crashing, with a great breeze. We never shut the doors or windows and did not have any bug issues....which was nice! After our days directly downstairs on the beach, we hung out on the nice size balcony people watching & catching the sunset. Not only is the view wonderful, the condo is in a great location!!! Walk down the beach and you are next door to the ELS (El San Juan Hotel & Casino), which we frequented a few nights for cocktails in the lobby bar with great live music...a very happening place! The Metropol Restaurant is about 3 blocks down the street & has fantastic food. It is also walking distance to Walgreens...where we picked up some food and booze. There's an information book in the unit, where you can find cab numbers. They picked us up directly in front of the gate & we went to Old San Juan one night for dinner at the Dragonfly (great sushi) - it was a quick trip & under $20 for both of us. I had a few basic questions along the way and Mark was quick to reply to my text and very helpful! FYI - if you are going soon, they are revamping the mosaic on the front of the building, so the name of the condo is not visible! Let your taxi know it's the end of Gardenia St. which dead ends at the beach, directly across from the Coco Mar & Alamar Condos. But don't worry - there is NOT any construction noise!!! THANKS AGAIN MARK & ROSA - we will be back, hopefully sooner than later!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the valuable feedback! We're glad that the construction did not pose any inconvenience; our condominium is doing some restoration work on the façade, which is an indication of how well our building is maintained. We are proud of our gem and are delighted to be able to share it with our guests.

Wonderful Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four has easily concluded that our stay in Puerto Rico was a very enjoyable experience. The condo was so comfortable at the end of a long day, the waves lapping up on shore made for some refreshing sleep. Thanks to Mark's fantastic suggestions and guidance for planning itinerary we were able to make the most of the time we spent in PR. The beach was so convenient, accommodations were comfortable and sipping delcious PR coffee each morning from the porch overlooking the water made a wonderful start to each day. Sure hope to return again soon and book this same condo for its excellent location, pleasant accommodations and most of all Mark's helpfulness and hospitality.
