We had a amazing stay at the Luquillo Beach Flat. Location was awesome and the check-in and check-out process was a breeze. Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a Puerto Rico getaway
This property was mostly as pictured. It was clean, and the location to the beach across the street was amazing.. However, it looked updated in the photos, which some of it is. The kitchen however lacked good lighting, the cupboard doors slammed into one another when you opened them. Some cupboard doors were extremely difficult to open. We could not find the trash can for two days due to this. The microwave had damage inside of it. There is no dishwasher and the refrigerator door opens oddly to the right, forcing you to exit the kitchen to open it. There is no oven and the toaster oven is tiny. There is no central air and no air-conditioning in the living room space. So if you cooked or did not run the ceiling fans in the bedrooms continually, you would overheat in the living room. The first day I thought well, we'll just watch TV in the air-conditioned bedroom.. well that was impossible as the TV in that room turned on and off on its own. I informed the property manager who offered to send someone while we were out which I didn't feel comfortable about, being in a foreign country and noting the abandoned hotel just a block away and many bared windows. I asked if they could come the following day when we were there. I said early morning would be good before we started our day. I received no response. The beds were comfortable, the place felt as clean as a beach apartment with sand can, and the view was beautiful. The wicker furniture in the living room is not very comfortable to cozy up in and watch a movie or show before bed. So overall, I couldn't get comfortable between the hot living room and wicker furniture. Another thing to note is there is no washer or dryer and the neighbor did not recommend a nearby laundromat. Also, the patio doors did not lock although there was a garage like door that went up and down so I felt secure at night. The paint in the unit is peeling in the bathrooms, the toilet seat would not stay up, you had to hold it, so we bought some tape. They did supply ample towels, trash bags, small shampoos and soap, a starter papertowel roll, toilet paper, starter (watery) dish soap, beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, some footballs, etc.. for the kids. No umbrella for the beach. I admit, I have high standards and I own a unit at a lake I rent, so I expect alot. There is a grocery store, gas station, pharmacy, bar, and fast food nearby. We made the best of it and had a nice trip. People in Puerto Rico are very friendly
I have never been inclined to write any reviews good or bad. But this stay deserved the time to say what a wonderful.location, clean, and super responsive property mgmt. First floor, steps to the beach. Everything we needed close by. All i could have asked for and more!
Building was initially hard to find on GPS but property manager was excellent in getting us there when we called her. Place was clean and the location and views were awesome. Easy walk to the beach and one mile away from tons of great eating at the Kioskos.
Clean quiet area
I love my stay. Enough space for a family of 4 and another couple. The apartment was super clean and had everything you might need, we had no need to go out to buy anything for the kitchen or even beach gears and toys for the kids. It is literally across the street from the beach. Very relaxing during the day and quite at night. The checkig process was a walk in the park and the girl assisting us was always available for any question, not any issue to report though. Beautiful beach and beautiful apartment, I definitely recommend it.
The only bad thing about the rental was the floor plan was awkward for 6 adults because you enter through the master bedroom everything else was great!
We enjoy our experience in Luquillo beach.
Great stay. clean great value. Location right on the beach. Everything you need near by. Plenty to do and see.
Shopping and foods close by.
Our stay was just what we wanted and needed. Tania was very attentive to our questions and needs. We will definitely plan to stay again perhaps renting the apartment next door to accommodate more of us. Gracias por todo la buena atención.
We have a family of 5 two adults and3 kids. Plenty of room. It was right on the beach just crossed a road and you were on the beach. The road was very quiet and not busy. We brought snorkels and spent a lot of time exploring the coral reefs.
We had a fantastic time staying at the Luquillo Beach Flat. It is literally feet away from Luquillo Beach. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, and the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and equipment to make our breakfasts and lunches (when we weren't enjoying the delicious food at the kioskos). This location made our vacation absolutely wonderful -- it probably contributed to our enjoyment more than anything because we woke up to views of the ocean.
Once you open the doors and enter the property, you will forget all and any stress you might had arrived with. Very clean, comfortable and simply decorated to accommodate your family. The view of the crystal clear blue water awaits you as you seat in the unit balcony. Access to main road and local attractions such as El Yunque, Ferry Port, Bioluminescent Lagoon, Icaco, Palomino, Vieques and Culebra islands; let’s not forget the Luquillo Kiosks. A very good choice! Wished there was a washer and drier but otherwise, had everything you might need.
This is an above average Rental
This condo was great for our family of five- two young adults and one teen. The best part about it was the view of the beach each morning. There is a good breeze so any time we sat in the balcony, it didn't feel hot. The living room got a bit warm but not too bad with the doors open and fan blowing. The entrance to the condo is through the master bedroom. Each bedroom had an air conditioner. The kitchen had everything we needed. Contacting property management was easy and they always responded right away. There is a Walgreens very close by, and a Walmart about 10 minutes away. There is also a pretty well stocked grocery store very close by called Amigo. If you go, bring your own grocery bags. There are lots of restaurants nearby serving Puerto-Rican food. We tried 3 of them at the kioskos. There are some fast food American places such as Subway and Wendy's close by. We wish there were a few more mid-range American restaurants close by. We did enjoy our meal at Boardriders which we walked to from the condo. We rented a car and drove to San Juan a few times to visit and do activities and there are plenty of American restaurants there. In the Luquillo area, we enjoyed the rainforest, Las Paylas, the organic farmer's market/ craft show, and an excursion to Culebra. We didn't do the bio bay because the exclusion company called and said it wasn't glowing while we were there. We had a trip to Icacos planned, but it was cancelled due to seaweed infestation. Go with some things planned, knowing that depending on conditions, they might get cancelled. We did enjoy the beach right in front of us several days. The condo had boogie boards (3?) and chairs for our entire group. There were a couple blow up rafts as well. The only real negative is that the town of Luquillo itself is pretty run down. Overall, I am happy we booked here. The condo was clean, nice, and everything worked well. It was so great to be so close to a very pretty beach.
Do it again in a heartbeat with West Indies property management!!
The apartment looks exactly as in the pictures. There’s a master bedroom with full bathroom and the other two bedrooms have a a bathroom in the hallway. When you open the porch sliding doors, the view is just beautiful. You can hear othe waves and and the the palm trees and beach from the kitchen. That’s how close it is. I will be going back to this vacation rental and recommend it to others.
I enjoyed the property greatly. The fact that it is located directly across from the beach was wonderful. This stay gives you a chance to stay where the local live and not the tourist trap spots. I enjoyed everyone around us and the were very friendly. It is a good distance from San Juan about 32 miles but well worth the travel. Being able to have the local food at inexpensive prices makes all the difference. The build was sound the power worked with out fail and the Condo was nice plenty of space for my group.
Great customer service! At the beach literally your front yard.
We loved the apartment and the location across from the beach was great. The linens and towels were musty because it hadn’t been used in a while.
