  • I could get used to living on the beach...

    "We ended our week in Puerto Rico at the Sandy Beach Villa. It was our 4th hotel during the week and we stayed 4 nights. We rented the 1st floor with our 4 young adult kids ages 19, 21, 23 and 25. Staying at the Sandy Beach Villa was so relaxing. WE could cook in, instead of having to find restaurants for every meal like the first part of the trip (gets expensive when you are feeding 6). Eating on the 4th floor rooftop deck was amazing and lounging on the first floor chaise lounges was relaxing. In other words the outdoor spaces were A+! Also, being right on the beach you could dip in and out of the perfect temperature water. The kids took a surfing lesson from the guys in the lot next door which was reasonably priced at $40 per person including all day board rental. We drove to Steps Beach and used the 2 snorkels from the house and rented 2 more there. There were always waves on Sandy Beach so calmer waters would have been a little nicer for me personally. The rest of the family didn't mind. The house also has a couple of boogie boards to use. Back to the house: the living room was comfortable and the beds were as well. A/C and fans worked GREAT. WiFi not so good but you could catch it in part of the living room and 1 bedroom. T-Mobile didn't work in the house but did on the patio and street. I really liked the neighborhood mix of a shop across the street and Tamboo 3 doors down. There were some other cute places to stay nearby. The area felt totally safe. Our family was on high alert for mosquitos and the Zika virus and this house had screens on all of the windows - very reassuring. Erica was the manager on duty and I feel that she was very accessible. We had a great stay at the Sandy Beach Villa and wish we could have stayed longer! Hawaii and Cabo San Lucas are typically the go-to places for Californians and I am now a Puerto Rico fan where I can stay RIGHT ON THE BEACH for a reasonable price."

  • Spacious apartment and great location

    "My wife, infant child, mother, aunt and I stayed here for just under a week. We were looking for a place within walking distance of a calm beach, close enough to the highway and within an hour of the airport. We were not disappointed. The beach is about 100 yards from the condo. There were waves, but the waves were not rough. And if we wanted no waves, we only had to walk about 1/4 mile on the beach and arrive in much calmer water. With an 11 month old, it was perfect. The water was shallow, clear and calm. I did not want to stay in a high rise condo building, which Luquillo does have if that is your flavor. There is something to be said of being able to walk outside of your door , and not having to walk down a hallway, take an elevator down, and walk across a lobby just to get outside...Alana and her family were so accommodating and helpful to our needs, which was not much, but it was nice to know that she was very responsive when a few minor things came up. While it does not impact my five star rating of my experience, if there is anything negative to write about the property, it would be that there was the occasional vehicle that would drive by in the middle of the night with its music blasting. Then again, I was in PR during a Holiday weekend - El Dia de San Juan...Thank you Alana and have a wonderful summer!"

  • Great 10 year anniversary

    "This was our first time to Puerto Rico and we had a great time. The villa is in a great location. Only about 35 minutes from San Juan. You will definitely want to rent a car because there is a lot to explore in this area. The property is lovely. Great pools and beach. Beach chairs are available for lounging out on the beach and plenty of chair and tables by the pool. It is nice having access to the hotel next door for a meal if you don't want to cook or go out. The villa has everything you need. Plenty of space for a couple and having the balconies was awesome. The only thing that could use improvement is that it could use a deep clean and a new coat of paint. Neither of these would keep me from going back though. We will definitely be returning!"

  • totally relaxing

    "the condo was beautiful, 100 inch projection TV, all the amenities. The pool was really nice and most of the time there were hardly any people there so pretty private. There was no iron in the facility and with almost all the attendants speaking Spanish , it took two days to finally get across what I needed. The one big downside is that there really is no beach due to erosion. There is a small area that you could actually put a lounge chair on but the seaweed and rocks are a problem. Not sure why they can't rake the seaweed up daily, it is such a small area. Other than that it was great but you absolutely need a car if you plan to go off the property at any time, otherwise a golf cart is available."
