Beautiful place. Very peaceful and relax.
Next to Tamboo it’s another experience. Kool!!!
Jim and Carlos were great and went the extra mile for us. Our family loved hanging out at Sandy Beach and it was great to get all the local info on the area for cool things to do. It felt like having your own house and it was super relaxed. We would come back again in a heartbeat.
Beachfront, friendly comfort
This is one of the best locations in the West. It is dog and family friendly despite having as a neighbor one of the most famous bars in western PR. My two kids had a blast in the waves, while my wife read a book, and I did some kitesurfing (intermediate to advance launch/land site). The apartment was rustic, yet clean and the beds were nice and firm. No problem with the sound next door. Air conditioners were brand new. Thank you Jim and Carlos.
Can't beat the view!
Can't beat the view! We moved from another property to this one and felt MUCH better about these accommodations! They were slightly more affordable than similar options we priced, and as seaside as it gets! We already learned that Puerto Rico is more relaxed than the US in some standards, so I was relieved that the floors were clean under the beds, and the property was clearly well-tended, with fully forgivable imperfections. We enjoyed blended drinks & meals on the balcony overlooking the sea, which has a convenient little table and hammock. We rented boards from Rincon Surf School and walked to the most popular beginner surf spot around, where they also gave us a lesson. We took advantage of being next door to Tamboo, and had fabulous sunset meals or cocktails "out."
I highly recommend keeping the contact info you're provided, and using it if things come up. Our experience suggests they'll address any issue before it becomes a complaint (and if you don't provide the chance to address, you really shouldn't be publicly complaining). Things came up -AC remote batteries died (rendering the AC useless), but we had new ones within 2 hours of reporting/sooner than we even needed it! I thought the salty air got to the living area ceiling fan and it didn't work so I called and Viola - the answer - give it a tap to get going... and it worked well. We were there Monday-Thursday and didn't need earplugs, but I hear it can get loud on weekends and kept some handy just in case. Another HOT TIP - if you're coming from the US - put your phone and data settings on roam. It wasn't considered roaming for Verizon, but my iPhone didn't detect that there was service until I did that. Internet works very well, but is spotty throughout the general area, which means that anywhere, we should expect mini downtime. (I could get the open signal next door as well as Pelican's password protected signal and their ten minute breaks in service were simultaneous).
This apartment is for someone who wants to be fully immersed in the seaside experience and who's eager to be pleased. We met the neighbors, but had plenty of privacy too. They were honeymooners and travelers and they loved it too (actually gave us a tour when we were trying to find better/cleaner accommodations and that's how we found Pelican). The lighting inside or the paint colors could be slightly brighter, but we didn't spend enough time inside to care . . .the balcony /patio is where it's at!
