This was exactly as described on the site the place was wonderful. Spoke with Rios over the phone and he was always available for any questions that I had. Really enjoyed staying here . Can’t wait to return
This location was perfect for our trip. The building was very secure, the unit was spotless, directions and communication was stellar and the balcony was everything! We travel to this area fairly frequently and I will always look to book here when it is available.
Host was very attentive and responsive. Very beautiful condo overlooking the ocean.
This apartment It’s super perfect everything clean I love the view The owner is so sweet... este apartamento es súper limpio todo perfecto la vista maravillosa quede henamorada el dueño súper amable se los recomiendo al cien 🇵🇷🇵🇷
The apartment is beautiful and the view truly is the same as the pictures, all ocean. You wake up and go to sleep hearing the waves. The apartment complex has stairs that go directly down to the beach, and the beach is basically empty, very quiet and relaxing. The area has a very local vibe, not a ton of restaurants immediately next to apt, but if you drive 10 minutes down the road lots of shops and food options.
Great place to stay in Luquillo. Condo had everything we needed and more! We will definitely be back. Host was great and very helpful. Thank you Rafael!
Just great location and with a rent a car so close to rainforest ,beautiful beaches and 35 minutes drive to San Juan it was beautiful even the beach on property was great. Every day you see professional photographs taking pictures right on the beach underneath the balcony that's tell you everything how beautiful is .The balcony what do I use a lot was the beautiful with breathtaking view , apartment it's clean and nice and owner was really helpful with everything and really nice. If we ever travel to Puerto Rico again that would be our plan to stay on the same location or same area. Thank you Rafael you make us feel that we are at home
I am not sure who liked our stay the most, my two teenagers or my husband and I. This was our first time in Puerto Rico and this location was the best for us and close to all the things we wanted to do. Having a private beach right there and not having to drive to get some waves was amazing. We did go to a few other beaches but didn't stay long as the one at home was the best! We felt so safe walking down the block to get Pizza at Williams, or early or late night walks on the beach. Now I will say that the first appearance of the neighborhood at night looked a little different but after driving around during the day you realize that some of the homes have not been repaired after the hurricane and natural disasters. The neighbors were kind and welcoming! There is a security guard and locked gate to enter the property and parking. The only thing you need to keep an eye out for is an occasional iguana or lizard (outside not indoors)..haha! Also the home had everything you need to cook, even food, since it was our first time in Puerto Rico we ate out every meal, but next time we will be cooking!! There are even beach towels, chairs, some sand buckets, and a volleyball for you to use at the beach. There is even a locked gate to enter the beach and come back up to the house where the l Showers to rinse all the wonderful sand off at! Our host was amazing and answered all my questions very fast! Make sure to check out the Kiosks for some great food and gift shops. Revolution Pizza was our favorite!
Gorgeous views, cute and clean apartment!! Mr. Rios was so helpful, quick to answer anytime we had a question and checked on us regularly to make sure we were doing okay. The apartment was just as the pictures show and the balcony was our favorite place to hang out. The condo security is tight and we always felt safe. Our only critique would be frequently security had the gate to the beach locked up so we had to walk around the block to get to the beach but that was just more of an inconvenience. This place and host is amazing and if you’re considering this place just do it!!! Cant wait to come back
This was our first family getaway since the Pandemic started and the host made it extremely pleasant and wonderful. The apartment was located on the beach with amazing views. The place was well suited with all the amenities you could ask for and beautifully setup. The host would always make sure everything was going good and was quick to answer any questions., This alone is priceless. The place was gated, 24 hour security and always felt safe - even late night walks were fine as the neighborhood was friendly.
This place was beautiful! Loved drinking coffee on the balcony and watching the surfers. Location is perfect, right on a beautiful beach, short drive to many attractions!
This was by far one of the best places I stayed.
What a cool find! Between the Rain forest, and the beautiful beach- you cant get a better place to stay. Close to everything, this little condo is the PERFECT place to stay! It has everything you need-and some things you don't expect. When I return to Puerto Rico- this is where I want to stay!
We really enjoyed our stay. The place was perfect for the two of us. Everything you need for a short stay or a longer stay. The views outweigh everything else about the area or the building where it is located. We felt safe because there’s a 24/7 security and it’s gated in. We will definitely stay there again and do recommend this place highly. You are literally on the beach but high enough that your away from the ground. Our experience here was great. Thank you guys so much for the beautiful place.
Vey clean and beautiful view.
We had an amazing stay! There was a hiccup during check in. We weren't able to get into the property until almost 6pm because the previous occupants not only checked out late, but also took items, and disappeared. Once we were in the property though everything was amazing! Rapha texted me to make sure everything was great and to see if we needed anything. The ironing board had some damage and once we told Rapha, a new one showed up that evening along with some additional towels. The location was perfect for us. We did not cook because we got food from local restaurants and the kioskos, but everything we'd need to cook with was there. The views were amazing. Everything was so comfortable. The ocean breeze, sounds of the waves, and sunrises/sets were amazing! The only thing I would suggest is maybe a curved curtain rod. The shower is narrow, so when showering I felt like I was fighting with the shower curtain. Honestly, this was a wonderful stay and next time I come back to Puerto Rico, I'll definitely look to see if this property is available! I'll probably bring my two children and this property will definitely accommodate us!
We stayed with my family for a weekend. Everything was spectacular. The apartment was super clean, spectacular view. It was very well equipped and close to everything. Even has an air fryer! . Many tourist places nearby to visit. The owner always very attentive to how we were going. We definitely want to come back soon!
I just have to said this is a beautiful property and Mr Rios is the best host ever super nice and always there for anything we need it!! Thank you Mr Rios we hope to come back soon🙏
He was great, the house was great, I enjoyed my stay and loved the balcony I spent 80% of my time on the balcony enjoying the view. Highly recommend!
My family and I have stay at many different places but this place, it’s location and the landlord were simply AMAZING. The landlord was very tentative and made sure my family and I were comfortable during our stay. There’s absolutely nothing to complaint about. Thank you Mr. Berrios. You were amazing.
Will see this property again.
The apartment looked just like the pictures almost better in person. The king bed in the bedroom was so comfortable and the pullout in the living room our son loved very comfortable!! The owner had four or more beach towels and two chairs for the beach! He also had a variety of sunscreens and aloe Vera! In addition, he had a stocked pantry and everything needed to cook!! Rafel gave us tips on local eateries and etc that was amazing!! I highly recommend this apartment or any other property he has because I know you will be in great hands!!
Wow! I have so many fantastic things to say about our stay and Puerto Rico! This was our first time to the Island and Rafael was incredibly accommodating! He answered every question we had and then some and went completely above and beyond any home stay experience I’ve ever had before! The views are out of this world! The people were incredibly friendly and we met some truly great new friends! The neighborhood initially caught me off guard, but I quickly learned that many are still rebuilding after the catastrophic hurricane. I never felt unsafe walking the neighborhood and enjoyed exploring local shops and restaurants! My biggest complaint was the foul smell of one of the houses outside of the complex, but that had a very small affect on our wonderful stay! The beaches are beautiful! If you go to the right, you’ll find beach privacy and a very peaceful setting, if you go around the point to the left, you’ll find some very calm waters that are great for swimming and relaxing! The building was very secure and we never felt unsafe. The space itself is absolutely gorgeous and the bed was so comfy! I will truly miss enjoying my morning coffee on the gorgeous balcony while listening to the waves. I could go on forever, but bottom line: Rafael and his house are incredible and so worth it. I hope we can come back and visit soon!!
Enjoyed the central location to excursions
I recommend 100% this property. It has a SPECTACULAR ocean view. It's romantic and very private. A great place for relaxation. The owner was super attentive. We will definetly stay again.
The area and the views make this a great property. Easy to access beach and local places to eat. Sleeping each night to the sound of the ocean is delightful.
I enjoyed my recent stay, I felt safe and very comfortable. Great location and the parking was a plus, everyone was friendly and the owner was readily available if needed. Hope to stay again! David Rivera
So getting to Porto Rico was rough for us, our flight was delayed by 14 hours so we got to the condo at 2am. The property owner was soo accomidating and had everything we needed to get in. It's gated and you need the key for elevators and to even get in property which made us feel safe and at ease. The property had everything we needed for our 1 week stay. Wow!!! What a beautiful view and he also gave us all the information to do all the cool things around the island. Flat our best vacation we've ever had, we had 6 people and it was the perfect place for it. He also checked on us everyday to see if we needed anything, we go on about 3-4 vacations a year and he was the best property owner we have had the pleasure of staying with. So very happy we found this little Jem!!!! Deffinatly coming back.
Beautiful ocean view! Owner was wonderful with communication and recommendations. The only minus was the inconsistency of shower temperature. Overall 5/5, and would stay again! Thanks!!!
The location of this property was incredible - the view was spectacular!!! The location was out of the hecticness of the city yet convenient for sightseeing. The condo was clean and had all we needed. The owner was very attentive. I would definitely stay here again!
We stayed at Raphael Rios’s property from Jan 26-Feb 3/2020. It was excellent! 5 stars, or more! The pictures don’t do the view justice! It’s phenomenal! The sound of the waves was music to our ears! The condo was clean and tidy and beautifully decorated. The building was well-secured and protected. Mr. Rios was very responsive to all our enquiries and super helpful. He was available whenever we needed him. Check in and out went very smoothly. Thank you very much Raphael Rios for opening up your property and letting us enjoy it too! We are already planning our visit for next year.
everything was wonderful
We absolutely loved our stay! The host was extremely helpful and checked in on us to make sure we were enjoying our time. He answered any questions we had in a timely manner and gave great suggestions. Boardriders was a delicious restaurant/bar that was a 4 minute walk from the apartment. The patio was my favorite part! Slept out in the hammock a couple nights and the sound of the waves was so relaxing. If you are considering staying here, just do it! You won’t regret it, I promise!
This place was amazing. The condo is beautiful, clean, and nicely furnished. The view was spectacular. Rafael was very attentive, helpful, and accommodating. He is an exceptional host.
This place was amazing! The pictures do the views no justice!! Updated, well kept & clean apartment located on the waters of Luquillo Beach. The owner (Ralphie) was very helpful and gave detailed instructions. Would definitely rent from Ralphie again!
Great location with truly million-dollar view any time of the day (returned home with hundreds of pictures from the balcony - from sunrise to sunset, and even captured a midnight thunderstorm over the ocean :) . We will definitely recommend this place to our family and friends. Planning to come back soon!
Couldn't ask for a nicer home can't wait to come back.
Perfect location for exploring Puerto Rico. Minutes from kiosks, short distance to Old San Juan, Fajardo for the bio bay tours, and Cieba ferry terminals. Condo has a beautiful view of the water where you can enjoy the nice breeze and watch surfers. Everything for the beach is provided- towels, chairs, umbrella, and cooler. Large laundry facility available off the lobby. Property manager is available and prompt with answering questions.
Very nice condo with a fabulous view of the beach and ocean. It is sitting on the 9th floor so the view is fantastic. The waves are crashing loudly and the sound of the ocean is very relaxing. Very good location to get to either San Juan or Fajardo/east coast. The owner, Rafael was very good at communicating and sharing suggestions on things to do, places to see and where to eat. He helped us several times with Puerto Rico questions and we found him to be very friendly and a great host. I would definitely recommend his condo to my friends and would stay there again if we get to come back some day. Thanks for all you help Rafael.
All was good from the security to the owner great bed was comfortable place was clean place is well kept
The apartment was very clean, great view! The owner was always very responsive when we had questions
Rafael was an amazing host always alert of everything. Beautiful place and beautiful view. Would definitely consider staying again!
We loved the location of this Condo. The views don't get any better than this. The photos are spot on with the website and the location is even more amazing in person. Loved sitting in the swing chair in the early mornings while hubby was still sleeping. The bed was sooooooo comfortable, oh my goodness. We usually are sore and stiff from sleeping in a different bed than ours, but not this time. My husband said he never missed his bed once. Communication with Mr. Rios was fantastic making sure we were happy and comfortable, even suggesting local Restaurants to try. We went to La Parilla twice and Pasta Y Pueblo. Great food at both places. The unit is beautifully remodeled and stocked with everything you could possibly need for a vacation including beach towels and chairs. The property is safe and built like Fort Knox and security was always on hand for any questions. We loved this place and can't wait to go back to PR again. Was a great place for us to spend our 2nd Wedding Anniversary! Susan and Joedie Ortiz
This place has everything. VIews, clean, close to everything. 30 min. to airport (early morning flight), 15 min. to rain forest, 20 min. to bio bay, 30 min. to ferry, 20 min. to dive shop. Good restaurant (Boardriders) in walking distance, grocery and pharmacy store 5 min. drive. We felt safe everywhere we went. Rafael was on top of every thing and is fast to respond to anything. Location, location, location. Come with an open mind and leave with a happy heart. 😎❤
Rafael was a great host. Always contacting us to make sure everything was going okay. Condo had great balcony view and everything we needed. Spotless inside.
The location of this rental is great because of the ocean views and the balcony was great to seat back and relax I took a great nap on the hammock. It is also very secure since it is gated and the keyed elevator helped us feel secure. It is not luxurious but it is clean and cozy we enjoyed our stay
besides the fact that Rafael is awesome! this place was perfect for our getaway! close to everything we wanted to do. the night life is great! plenty of good places to eat. I recommend Brass Cactus for a happy hour of Mojitos! the place was clean had everything we needed and them some. the bed was super comfy and the hammock and swinging chair was perfect for night hang out on the balcony. if you are looking for a affordable clean safe place in paradise book this one! Thanks Mr Rios! you are the bomb!
Management and security available any time
Rafael is an excellent and gracious host! The apartment is clean and the view of the beach is spectacular! So much to do in the area and we had the opportunity to take ferry to both Culebra and Vieques Islands. Gorgeous beaches! Just keep in mind the building is in an impoverished area. I had no problem with that but maybe not for everyone. 24/7 security so safety is not a problem. Pool is not in service yet.
Nice, clean condo. We had a great time snorkeling, seeing the rainforest, Old San Juan, Cueva del Indio, and the beautiful Playa Flamenco on the nearby island of Culebra. All in all we had an epic memorable family vacation. Thank you!
Awesome, clean, lovely, classy, contemporary condo. The highlight was the hammock and swing on the balcony with the most spectacular view imaginable! Wow! The owner/manager was extremely attentive and thoughtful. Even left us a bottle of wine as a welcome gift. The surrounding area still shows some signs of the latest hurricane. Renovations are still underway. But the condo itself was fully restored, fresh, new and awesome! Thank you for a magical week!
The apartment is well kept, your like home everything you need from towels to beach chairs and best of all the views from the balcony are amazing and relaxing 😎.
Great place. Very clean and organized. Enjoyed our stay.
This is a great place to stay in PR. We stayed for a week and loved coffee with the sunrise, afternoon siestas in the hammock, and the proximity to the beach, bio bay, Old San Juan, and El Junque. Don't miss the Simple Food truck nearby....fantastic. Beach chairs, towels, and cooler were so appreciated. Thanks for a great vacation.
The impoverished neighborhood driving up to the property was both unexpected & concerning, and as others have mentioned, the pool was empty - but once we stepped into the condo it was just as the owner has described. The furnishings were updated and adequate, although I think having 2 adults sleep on a futons would be quite uncomfortable. The view over the beach from the balcony was amazing, and if you are up early enough to see the sunrise you will be in for a treat each morning. Sitting out on the balcony in the ocean breeze was a perfect way to cool down each evening. As the direct beach access from the condo is only open on the weekends - getting to the beach entailed walking down the road, and as elderly tenants, with the heat, this was a little discouraging. We never felt nervous walking to the restaurants in the area, and really loved the owners hospitality and stories at the Rincón del Sabor restaurant that was only about a block away. There are plenty of stores within easy driving distance. Overall it was an pleasant stay.
We had a very good time. Property is amazing with beautiful ocean view. Very close to all major attractions. The owner is very responsive and really cares about his guests. Thank you very much.
Loved this property. The previous reviews had me under some sort of impression of the property having tall fences with barbed wire and guards standing outside, but it was as simple as the door having an incredibly sturdy gate on the outside, a feature the entire level had as well. With that said, my friend and I never felt compromised here as two, young women traveling by ourselves. The apartment itself is clean and has everything you could need, plus some. Extra towels, blankets, beach chairs, etc. Full kitchen. INCREDIBLE views with a lovely balcony. Close to restaurants and access to outdoor activities. Communication with host was pleasant and easy. We would definitely stay again and would recommend to others.
Wonderful stay at the vacation home!! The stay was really amazing with the ocean view balcony. The condo was clean and comfortable to stay with all the basic amenities. The stay was too happening and we really enjoyed it. The condo is near to all the restaurant and all the activities. We visited culebra, rain forest, bio bay, Arecibo and old San Juan. Will be back again. Thank you Rafael .
Very appreciative to have the condo owner respond to every call & text I needed. Everyone in the building was kind & helpful. Staying in the town of Luquillo you will feel more like a local & not a tourist. Aside from having the beach access, there’s a lot of family activities within 10miles or less (ziplinning, horseback, ATV & nature walks in Yunque rainforest). I highly recommend driving about 20miles to the next town of Ceiba, where there’s a new ferry. Free parking & cheap ferry tickets. Go to the Island of Culebra, it’s BEAUTIFUL there! Also from the condo is Old San Juan, about 40min drive & a MUST see!!!
We had a great time and love the privacy of the condo.
We really enjoyed our stay! The condo was clean and decorated well. There were plenty of dishes and utinsils for cooking in. There were beach chairs, and extra blankets and towels available for use but we brought our own. The owner was great with communicating and provided suggestions on sites nearby. The view is spectacular! You can see the ocean from anywhere in the house. The balcony was my favorite spot, I spent most of my time when actually home in the hanging chair reading, napping, people watching and listening to the waves. I did notice the pool is being worked on, but that wasn’t a problem for us because we were there for the beach and it didn’t disappoint. We were out quite a bit in the evenings and always felt safe. I would stay again if visiting the Luquillo area.
My boyfriend and I stayed mid October for 4 nights. The condos view is just AMAZING! The condo was decorated beautifully and clean with a full kitchen and lots of extras like beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, extra sheets/ blankets and towels. The owner was super fast on getting back to us about any questions the entire trip. The internet was having a issue which we think later was just wrong password but he within minutes had someone on the line fixing the issue! The hammock was my favorite! The location was great for anyone who plans to rent a car and drive around to the different towns. Furthest we drove was to San Juan, which was about 45-50 minutes but traffic was great. I would stay here again in the future! Also, if coming to P.R. you have to go to Culebra Island and see Flamenco beach! Happy vacation!
The condo was beautiful. The view was breathtaking. My boyfriend and I stayed for a week and have no complaints about the condo itself or the owner. He was extremely helpful! Perfect place for two guests to stay. However, DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE VACATIONING TO PR! Know what to expect. The main pool was not filled when we visited in October. Only a small baby pool was open. There was only a toaster oven in the rental so we couldn’t cook certain things for ourselves. Also the washer and dryer are not in the unit, there is a laundry room you have to pay for in the lobby of the building. Know the season; we visited during the rainy season. It rained almost every day while we were there, though we did not have to wait for anything like the ferry and we were not swamped with other tourists. We did not get as much sunshine/beach time as we had hoped. Pros and cons. The water was very rough and there was a rip tide advisory the entire time we were there, so we didn’t spend much time in the ocean. Also, 75% of the nearby national rainforest was closed due to hurricane Maria damage. We were able to see one of the falls and swim in the river. We were also able to ride horses on the beach nearby which was a great experience! We took a ferry to nearby Culebra and had flamenco beach all to ourselves! The locals we met during our week long stay warned us to not be out walking around alone or at night. There were a lot of great restaurants around, including the kiosks, and W Sushi Bar. Our favorite place was the Boardriders beach bar! Amazing drinks and view. The best grocery store nearby is Econo in Fajardo. A car is 100% necessary to get around the island. In summary, we had an amazing vacation, and loved the fact that we were immersed in the local culture and not surrounded by other tourists. Just do your research about being a tourist in PR before you book and know what to expect! Thanks for a wonderful vacation! We will we definitely be coming back!
We loved staying here! The home was well kept and clean. The owner is great to work with and the ocean view is just amazing!
Loved the place plan to come back again wish we took more advantage with ocean and all of the stuff he had for the beach,
We read the reviews of all of the previous renters and were sold on this property. We were completely sold when we opened the door of the condo. The condo had an amazing view of the ocean, the condo was clean and the furniture was comfortable. The condo had everything we needed for our week in Puerto Rico! The condo is on the water and near some great restaurants within walking distance! The sunrise and sunset was beautiful each day and the people in Luquillo were so kind and welcoming! Rafael was beyond helpful and a great resource during our stay! He was available for us to call or text if we needed anything. Rafael was even nice enough to talk to our taxi driver to make sure we made it to the condo. I am not sure when we will come back to Puerto Rico but we will definitely try to book this place again! Thank you Rafael for making our first trip to Puerto Rico unforgettable!
Nice place with a beautiful Beach view. Just a short drive to all the restaurants Plenty of bars and souvenir shops at the kiosk on Luquillo beach. There is a Walmart nearby to get whatever you need.
Puerto Rico has been through a lot after the hurricane at the island. As things continue to rebuild, our room was such a wonderful retreat as it was recently updated, and a perfect place to stay. Our visit was fabulous as the place was clean, convenient and the owners very attentive. We will definitely come back and stay with them again! And as you can see from the photos, the views don’t suck either. ;)
Very beautiful and very clean place i wiil rent it again....
Looking for an extraordinary view and beach??? Look no further. My stay here was nothing but amazing every morning and sun set. The beach his very tranquil place to relax and meditate. I will return on my next visit.
There is many things to do. The apartment service was excellent. I recomend it 100%.
I really enjoyed rafael and his lovely friend who was very nice and helped us throughout our stay....We will definitely be going back....thanks so much for your hospitality....your friends Tha Boyds
Everything was nice and clean and very presentable!! I felt like I was at home, so it was literally home away from home. Only thing I needed were clothes and food. The owner is very attentive and always makes sure everything is running smooth with his guests. Beautiful view and awesome location especially for night life. I will definitely stay here again on my next vacation. Thank you for everything!!!!
It was what my family and I were looking for. A nice place on the beach and close to many outdoor attractions. I'll definitely stay here again.
The apartment is in a condominium with everything you need: a guard at the gate, beach, pool, children pool, children play area with toys, parking garage, elevators. The view from the apartment is amazing, the view itself is worth all the money we paid and even more! The apartment was clean and well kept, and I loved spending the evenings reading a book on the balcony. The location is perfect to reach the rainforest and to catch the ferry or a flight to go to Culebra and Vieques. San Juan is not too far either. If I have to find an issue would be that the AC is only in the bedroom, but there is a ceiling fan in the living room at least.
Gorgeous view, affordable for the week that I stayed. Walking distance from many restaurants and shopping. Will love to visit this property again.
The property is very secure and well kept. This was a very restful and relaxing stay.
Safe and secure
If you are looking for a nice peaceful stay in PR this is it. Thank you Rafael!!
Everything was great no complaints. I shared my photos with everyone back home they love it so much they Booked their vacation here for July. I'm making plans to come back here also. The views and Sunrise are just Spectacular !!!
This was my first time using home away so I was a little skeptical about the entire thing, but it all went away the moment I walked in a saw the view .... Omg it was perfect!!! Mr Rafael was amazing, even though he wasnt in town he made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. He provided suggestions on where to go to eat and locations to visit. The kitchen is fully equipped which I took advantage of every morning for breakfast and there was nothing better than laying at night listening to the sound of the waves. This place was definitely a Dream and the pictures do not do it any justice.
The people in the area, especially year round residents at Sandy hills, were very helpful and friendly. Upon arrival to the area we were a bit thrown off by all the buildings surrounding that were abandoned or in bad shape. After exploring area, we felt very comfortable and safe. Boardriders has the best drinks around and Eriks Gyros had the best breakfast! The beach is gorgeous, the area is close to many attractions, like rain forest. We loved this apt bc it was cozy and had all the amenities of a regular home (like full kitchen). My only negative complaint is that I found both the bed and the futons to be very hard and uncomfortable.
THIS APT IS SUPER BEAUTIFULL AND SO FURNISHED THAT I FEEL HOME. THANK YOU FOR LETTING US IN YOUR BEAUTIFULL Beach Apt. This apt is so Cozy and fully furnished. We been so lucky that we used the New matress and new Sofa Beds!. Thank you,we coming back at your home
excellent location, right on the beach. quiet undeveloped beach to the east. surfing/body boarding to west. short drive to the rain forest. close to grocery store, fast food, walgreens. We have stayed here multiple times and enjoyed each of our stays.
Can't wait to go back to this wonderful place. The balcony view was breath taking. The hammock was relaxing. The premises were well protected by 24-7 security guards. The apartment was modern and had the feeling of home. Rafael was available at any time during our stay to offer any help or assistance we needed. The parking garage was safe, secure, and gated. Free WIFI and cable was a nice added feature. Centrally located to many activities, food, supermarkets, shopping, etc. Highly recommend you staying at this place and experience for yourself the awesomeness of it all.
wow,wow,wow what a beautifull and Safe and Chic is this One bedroom apt. Mr Rafael is such a kind and Honest person ,easy to get in contact with. Me,my husband and my kids stay in this property and we love and coming back Soon. The beach infront the apt is great to Swim,Kayacks,Surfer and Suntans. Thank you so much Rafael we will see you Soon.
Gracias Rafael, mesmerizing is the word for this property. Once you slide back the drapes to the slider doors and experience that beautiful multi color blue Atlantic Ocean your relaxation will begin. This is a comfortable and well equipped condo and you will want for nothing. Thanks for your many calls to ask how everything was going. Great property, Great host, Fantastic vacation Chris & Sue Southold, New York
The view was amazing. Accommodating security guard.
Good time. Was our beautiful home away from home. Enjoyed the views, water, sandy beach, ocean breezes, waves crashing on the rocks below lulled us to sleep each night, and friendly people everywhere. Delicious food at the local restaurants....short stroll to Pablo Y Pasta...Arromas....Boardriders.
The greatest thing about Rafael's place is the ocean view from the balcony. The apartment is very cozy and comfortable, it is also well-equipped with a full kitchen and supplies, it also has plenty of towels, beach chairs and even beach toys if you have kids! location is also great; close to Luquillo Beach, Los Kioscos and a short drive to El Yunque and Fajardo. Rafael was very accommodating and communicating with him was very easy, he makes himself available for any questions that travelers might have. Definitely Recommended. Gracias por todo Rafael!
Like I said. View is unbeatable. The apartment was super clean and nice set up. Getting into this place took me a little off guard. It's a guarded gate which is great. Place is very quiet. Felt like we were alone minus a few that maybe live year round. The bars on the doors caught us off guard and the barb wire around the exterior. The beach sand is amazing but u can't swim it they say. But again, the view and sleeping with doors open and listening to the waves all night is astounding.
This very well appointed condo allowed my son, brother, and I to engage in the cultural of Puerto Rico. Condo is very safe and there are great restaurants in walking distance. It's central to the rainforest, a host of beaches, and the ferry terminal to the smaller islands. The owner sent two text messages to see if anything was needed. Rafael was such a great host! The condo has everything you will need... all the great reviews are true. This is a great choice of lodging. JMS
The condo was nice, right on the water. We arrived after dark and were a little concerned at first about the neighborhood. The next morning we went walking around and all concerns were gone. The people were very nice in the neighborhood. Rafael & his sister Saribel checked with us several times to be sure everything was good, which it was. Good vacation, terrific view.
Its wonderful stay we had a great time my daughter just loved the place. Balcony has very good views and beach is good very quite and very secured place. Security people are very nice and amenities are very good clean place apartment staff is super nice. Raffel help us with everything hez very responsive over the phone and we can call him for anytime for the info . Hez very very good person. I will stay next time also.
I was born and raised in the island, Bsyamon to be specific . I went back to visit after 28 years. I remember visiting this area from my childhood.This was an amazing stay! The view is unbelievable and it feels like your walking into a post card when you open the apartment door. Mr. Rios was really accessible and kind. He was available 24/7. The parking officials Sanchez and Ledezma were very helpful. The parking elevator was not working and they lent us a closer parking spot. The apartment was very clean, and equipped with folding chairs, kitchen equipment and hammock. A ferry 20 min. drive to Culebra and Vieques ferry. A forty five minute drive to the San Juan airport. We ate at the Luquillo kiosks every day local food. Beautiful beach Great location and awesome place! We would definitively come back to this beautiful location.
Rafael was available when we needed advise or had questions about Puerto Rico.
Rafael and his sister were very attentive and interested in our experience while here--both in the apartment and on the island. They checked in on us just to see if things were going well. The apartment was comfortable and so very clean!! The entire apartment was definitely thoughtfully prepared and furnished with everything we needed--even beach chairs! Sleeping accommodations would work best for a couple and perhaps two children. But, the bed and futons are very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this place!
The view was amazing from the balcony. Condo is right on the water and the beach to the right has a place to rental paddle boat, kayaking, snorkeling and paddle-boards at a reasonable hourly rate. Condo is very neatly furnished and perfect for us three. Also has a hammock on the balcony that was so relaxing. It has it's own parking space and a laundry room downstairs which was very helpful. Mr. Rios is the owner of the place, he was so wonderful, detailed and helpful. I loved the fact that it was very close it was to the Yunque and the Fajardo Ferry. Will return again soon.
The view was absolutely amazing! The condo was clean and very well equipped. All of the staff were very nice, and the locals were nicer than I would have dreamed. We did have some power outages due to construction, but Rafael was there with advice immediately to address our concerns, which is the only reason I'm not giving it more stars. It was an amazing stay, I highly recommend the area!
First I want to say Rafael was amazing to me. Very humble gentleman,super sweet and helpful. He helped me from the start till the end of our trip. He was a call away. I was able to call him at anytime and ask for advice on what places to go or anything in general. First thing I really like about the condo was the security of this place. It is a gated community and there is a guard their 24/7. Very nice people and helpful as well. The moment we walked into the condo we were all blown away with the view of the beach. Its like that's the first thing that catches your attention. The condo was super clean and organize. you don't have to really worry about anything. you have everything you need at the condo,you have everything nearby. everything is like 10min drive. Walmart, pharmacy, Liquillo kiosks and all the activities and much more. Rafael has a whole bunch of flyers of everything you can do in the area in the condo so that was very helpful as well. I would definitely definitely recommend this condo to all my family and friends. It was so worth it. I will be coming back again! Thank you so much Raf! I really appreciate your hospitably, all your help and making us feel like home and on vacation. :)
Condo is right on the water and the beach to the right was not busy at all, in fact we had it pretty much to ourselves. Laying in the hammock on the balcony was such a treat! The condo was just right for the two of us. It is nicely furnished and comfortable, the bed was firm and we loved the air conditioning unit in the bedroom! The complex is really secure. The neighborhood is quite run down but the complex is very secure so we were never worried. Nice pool & the entry to the beach is right from the complex and has two outdoor showers to wash the sand off. We also loved how close it was to the rainforest, the biobay and the Fajardo ferry, three main things we wanted to do. It's only about 45 min from old town San Juan too. I will ecommend this condo and will hopefully be able to stay there again.
This was a great place to stay for a couple getaway. The view was great. Had everything you need in the kitchen. There was a nice place 5 minutes away with a lot of places to eat. Rafael was excellent as well worked with us when we had a car rental issue, so that we could get the keys for the apartment.
This was our second year in a row that we have stayed in the Condo. The condo was on the 9th floor and the view from the balcony was spectacular! It's all updated with ceramic tile thru out the condo. The breeze off the ocean was great. You didn't have to worry about your car as you had your own spot in the parking garage. The building was secure and the security guards would recognize you and call you by name.when they saw you. The residents of the building were polite and helpful. There is a pool, laundry facility and two elevators. We will be back for year three next year. And did I forget to mention The View!! Jose & Debby Lopez, from Ilinois
Rafael is the ultimate owner, going above & beyond to ensure your stay is amazing from beginning to end. The apt was spotless, GORGEOUS VIEW, and SUPER SAFE. We are already looking forward to booking our next stay!
Fantastic place to stay on vacation. This condo has an incredible view which you can enjoy from the balcony on a hammock or chairs. The inside is modern and super clean! The building is gated and has a pool, a kiddie pool, and a playroom for small children. We walked around the neighborhood to various places to eat. We felt safe and the locals were friendly. Our children really enjoyed seeing all the cats and chickens running around. Rafael contacted us via text every few days to make sure we were doing ok. The only problem we had was the wifi being spotty, not even bad enough to call him about but I mentioned it when he sent me a text. He was on the phone with the provider immediately and it was working perfectly when we returned from the beach. We were very happy with our stay at this condo and would highly recommend it. Here's a little information form our experience that may help you plan your stay: The condo has beach chairs, beach towels, 2 boogie boards and a bucket of sand toys. There are also coolers. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We mostly ate out but could have made anything we desired including frozen drinks in the blender. We ate breakfast almost every day at Aroma's (which I'm really missing now that I'm home!). It's a very short walk from the condo. Cuti's was also close for ice cream or smoothies. The beaches were beautiful. We were minutes away form El Yunque rainforest. Go early before it gets crowded! We were a short drive from Fajardo where we took a catamaran snorkeling and we to see the bio bay (which unfortunately was not glowing very well due to algae - this will hopefully improve over the next few months). Old San Juan was about 1/2 hour away and we had a great time exploring there for the day. The kioskos of Luquillo are a few minutes drive and have a huge selection of foods and places to eat. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the condo. There is a McDonalds, pizza place and Walgreens across the main highway. The Walgreens has a good selection of food and alcohol. We stopped there and grabbed some essentials our first night. Bottom line, if you want to explore the east side of the island Rafael's condo is the perfect place to stay. I'm so glad we chose it as our home for the week.
We had a great stay in Luquillo. After an initial scheduling snafu (which Rafael took care of) our vacation was amazing. The condo is located in a great area. There are places to eat and shop within walking distance. Boardriders is an awesome restaurant/bar just a 2 minute walk away. El Yunque rainforest is just 15 minutes away and is a must-see . The condo has all the accommodations you need. There are body boards, beach chairs and even a couple foam coolers to take to the beach. Rafael is available to answer any and all questions we had within minutes. We had 2 adults and 3 kids 11 and younger, the condo had enough space for us. It is a great condo with a ton of security. (although we felt safe whenever leaving the complex) Our thanks to Rafael for everything. We will be back.
This was our second time staying in this specific unit. We liked the view of the surfers and a place to boogie board, the quiet side with miles of undeveloped beach and easy access to both. Hope to stay here again in the future.
We stayed at Rafaels apartment for two weeks in March 2016. The apartment was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our self catering. The description and pictures are like it is - charming and with an amazing view. We enjoyed some wonderful sunsets at the balcony. Just next to the apartmenthouse is a quite long beach where you can stroll along, swim and take sunbathing. Check-in was uncomplicated and Rafael was very helpful. Thanks for your support with Harley Rental once again. All in all we loved to stay at Rafaels apartment and would take it once again if we are going to Puerto Rico once more.
This is a simple condo with everything you need, but what makes this place so special is the view!!! we had read reviews saying how beautiful it was but in this case you have to see it to believe it!! We walked for miles on beach, easy walking and felt very safe on beach. Montserrat beach is a must, the water is calm and is right besides the kiosks, we walked there twice from condo. There is no oven or dishwasher in condo but that didn't end up being a big thing but it is good to know that all your cooking will be done on stove top or microwave. Rafael was wonderful to deal with. And one really nice surprise we had is how everything was so clean, the complex itself is a little dated but so clean, to us that is the most important thing. Will be coming back for sure! t
We stayed 4 days at Rafeals condo and the view was amazing. We were greeted by rafaels sister with a kiss on the cheek, the condo wasn't quite ready so we left to do some shopping, When we came back she toured us around the complex and where we park and which keys are for what, this is a very secure building with 24 hr security on site, felt very safe. It was a bit complicated to find the condo but managed, area is a bit run down but nothing to worry about. Rafael was always a text message away and responded within 5-10 minutes( no kidding) we had some plumbing problems which Rafael promptly responded to but because we there for only another night it wasn't a big deal. The kitchen was fully stocked with the exception of some dish cloths and dish drying towels, could of been an oversight. The condo had beach chairs and boogie boards, beach towels, everything you need for a beach day. i would definitely stay again if returning to Puerto Rico.
This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we had a wonderful time! We loved the location and the views are amazing!! The people of PR are so friendly and the food is great, we never had a bad meal. A few of our favorites were the Brass Cactus, Lolita's Mexican, Mojito's and Boardriders...the fish taco's there are excellent! Visiting Old San Juan is a must see and I highly recommend the East Island Catamaran Excursion to Culebra...fun, fun, fun! Rafael is kind and accommodating, I would definitely stay at Sandy Hills again!!
The title says it all. Location was perfect, near the kiosks, loquillo and fajardo with a private beach and a semi private public beach nearby. Views were better than the pics. Apartment was clean. Raf and his sister were both extremely accommodating and focused on making sure you enjoyed the apartment. I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
My first trip to Puerto Rico was amazing and it is in large part due to where I stayed. The apartment was clean, beautiful, and the view was breathtaking. There was 24 hour security and access to a private beach. Besides the apartment being amazing the owner was warm and more than helpful. Whenever I return to Puerto Rico I plan on staying here again.
This review is long overdue - my husband our then 11-month old and I stayed here last November for 4 nights and this was truly the best part of our already great vacation to Puerto Rico. Rafael was super helpful and responsive before and during our entire stay and we were greeted by his extremely sweet cleaning lady (I feel bad that I forgot her name, because she was wonderful). The apartment is beautifully furnished, I would hire Rafael as my interior designer in a heartbeat. The view from the balcony is simply breathtaking - whether at sunrise, during the day or during the thunderstorm we got to experience. The best part of course is the beach right in front of the house!!! The waves were a little too much for our daughter but there is a river mouth right there and the shallow water was just perfect for her! There even were some beach toys at the apartment. The building has a little kids area with playground and lots of ride-on toys - she simply loved it! Yes, the building does come with quite a few security features but we never had the feeling to be in a bad area. We walked to breakfast everyday and once to dinner and everyone we saw just greeted us friendly, we never felt unsafe in any way. I truly hope we will make it back to Puerto Rico soon and if we do we will definitely stay here again. Thank you again Rafael for the amazing time we had!
I truly enjoyed my stay at Sandy hills ,Rafael was very helpful and pleasant to work with. Our first day. we explored the area then we took a hike in the Yunque Rain Forest where we got drenched we enjoyed an eatery in the local area eating cultural cuisine .We went on a snorkeling excursion at Culebra. It was fun and exciting .we also spent the day on San Juan where we shopped for souvenirs and good deals to take back to Colorado.I would definitely stay in Rafael's beautiful apartment home again .thanks for leaving the light on for us Rafael....see you again !!
We arrived in the early morning hours . The drive was short ,about 30 mins. Once off the exit navigating the streets where a little difficult but we made it . The apartment was great and is exactly as pictured. I felt comfortable and safe in the apartment , walking around the neighborhood and on the grounds. security guards are friendly and welcoming and informative . Our host Rafael was great as well . He was always there to answer phone calls and text messages. he checked in on us regular to make sure we were well . He is a great host and we definitely will be returning.
This property was absolutely amazing. Rafael was very helpful. He had his sister meet us at the gate when we arrived. She was so sweet! She showed us around the property, where to park our car, how to use the elevator and helped us register our car. She said to let her know if we needed anything, as did Rafael, but we didn't ended up needing any help during our stay. The apartment was like a dream to walk into. It was very clean and even more beautiful than the pictures. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets and blankets were the softest I've ever felt. The balcony had such an amazing view. Words can't even describe it. We had the most romantic night eating dinner and drinking wine on the balcony. We didn't end up visiting the beach in front of the condo because we enjoyed the activities at luquillo beach, but the beach below seemed much more quiet and secluded. If you wanted some peace and quiet at the beach I'm sure that would be a great place for it. The only reason I didn't give this five stars was because of the area surrounding the apartment. Despite having been warned that the area is a bit depressed, I was still surprised at just how run down the neighborhood looked. There were a lot of abandoned and crumpling buildings. I quickly learned however that this area is very quiet. We only ever saw older people on the street walking to the stores or sitting on their balconies. I didn't feel unsafe once I got used to it. I would definitely stay here again.
Excellent service and great communication with Rafael from the day before our arrival until our last day. His sister meet us at the apartment and went over security, parking etc, . When you walk in the apartment you get the WOW effect and you will get that every time you walk in. The place was as described, clean, organize and with all equipment needed to cook, enough towels and even all necessary thins for a day at the beach including cooler, beach towels and beach chairs, you can't ask for more because everything you need is there. Location is perfect to visit any point of the Island , the Main Street is about 3 minutes away. We took a walk every morning on the beach, you get to meet all locals doing their morning walk and exercising. We had breakfast a few times in a little but super nice place in town Aromas de cafe , walking distance from the apartment. The kiosks where a perfect place to eat almost every day which are about a 7 mins away. Over all it is a wonderful place with a breath taking view and excellent service, will go back in a heart bit. I have being telling every one about it, we are planing to go again in the near future. Is was a perfect experience.
Rafaels apartment was awesome! The view was spectacular! And it was located in the middle of everything! Rafael is also a great host, he was very attentive to our needs and was always available for questions. Definitely coming back here next time I'm in Puerto Rico!
Rafael is a good host. Very easy to work with and wants to look out for your best interest. The condo has stunning views of the ocean, right on the beach with direct access. Very convenient location to everything. Just a 45 min drive from San Juan airport. We used Alamo, for rental car it was amazing service. Elyunque is 10 mins, carabali is 8 mins, fajardo ferry to vi eques and clue bra is 20 mins drive. Wifi was quite good, no issues at all. There are two hdmi TVs one in bedroom and the other in living room. The one in the bedroom had some issues that Rafael should have them checked, hdmi would not connect, no big deal we used the one in the living room. Food around are good. Eric's deli was our go to place, walkable distance from the condo. Ernestinas restaurant was good and fresh as well, we also enjoyed the crepes at the crepes place next to the police station. The kiosks are over rated and a lot of stale food is sold there. The condo is one bed, and 2 futons in living room. The hammock is great in the balcony. We slept with our balcony doors open, trust me u would need it, just ensure your lights are off, as it may attract bugs in the night. The neighbourhood looks beat down but I walked it and the people there were so eager to help and were nice, just use common sense. The condo is very safe with lots of security measures. The condo could use some deep cleaning, looks okay from surface but certainly needs better detailed cleaning. We loved the fact it had stunning ocean views, very conveniently located and above all a very nice and pleasant host in Rafael. Thanks Rafael.
The best thing was the location. Within easy driving distance of San Juan but far enough away to join the tranquility of a beautiful beachside location. We loved waking to the sound of crashing waves and taking long wAlks along a golden sandy and deserted beach. Paradise!
We arrived at the airport at 11pm. Had no problems having access to the condo at 3am. Had no problems finding our condo. Directions were right on the money. The view from the balcony is breath taking, absolutely stunning. The condo was immaculately clean. The one thing that I really liked about this place is it's location. It's pretty much centralized to so many of the wonderful places one would want to visit. I highly recommend this location, and its owner is a very pleasant individual. The nice touch was the two cool ones he left in the frig for us. I definitely plan on returning to this condo in several years. Thumbs up partner. Great place.
This is a clean and beautiful apartment. the owner of this apartment is so nice and kind. We arrived in later than we expected in the morning aroun 2am. But the landlord still keep contacting us until we arrived. Trying to solve everything when we met during this period. He is so nice. This apartment is clean and convenient for people. We love it so much.
If you are looking for a beautiful , clean , and top off the line condo !! Then this is the place !! The condo was just as I expected !! Rafael was great and easy to contact !! I really enjoyed my stay and I will be contacting him again for any future trips to the Island . The place was immaculate and sophisticated !! I loved the location and the atmosphere !! I have stayed in other places in the past but this has been the best so far !!!! The condo was modern and very chic !!! Thanks Rafael for this opportunity !!! I have shared the pics of your place with many of my colleagues and they are very impressed with the place !!!! What an awesome experience !! Until next time !!
My family and I planned our vacation last minute. We found this property available and for a reasonable price. The property was fairly easy to find and the owner was very helpful, contacting us prior to arrival and available for questions or help. The Apt is exactly as described. Beautifully updated and the view is one in a million. Our family fought over who got to spend time in the hammock located on the balcony. My wife and I are already planning our next trip and we'd definitely stay here again. Thank you Rafael for making our vacation wonderful.
Bella la vista. El apto muy bello decorado. Todo muy limpio. Y su dueño muy amable y a la orden para cualquier cosa. Regreso de seguro!!!
It was really a honor to stay at this wonderful and very elegant apartment . I really was amazed at the comfort and great appearance. It is a pleasure to write this review and very easy for me to do so since I was totally satisfied and will definitely recommend and overall consider it once again if I had to return to Puerto Rico. Thank you so much.
This is a tastefully decorated, everything you need, and clean, with a great view and beach access steps away. I especially liked the beach access to take our morning walks at the surfs edge. The owner, Rafael Rios was very accomidating to our requests and a pleasure to deal with. The king size bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and one of the better nights sleep we had while visiting Puerto Rico. The gentle breezes off the ocean are always peaceful and the hammock on the balcony made it relaxing too. The property has access to a swimming pool and separate wading pool for the youngsters. I would stay here again if we go back to the area.
Beautifully decorated. Comfortable, clean and perfect for relaxing.
We left New York to get away from the cold for the weekend. This condo was just perfect. The view is awesome. Waking up everyday seeing the beautiful blue waters and hearing the sounds of the waves was a great way to start the day. The hammock on the balcony was enjoyed by my friend especially in the evening. The condo is exactly as pictured and very clean, as is the building. We were two women together and felt very safe, even in the parking lot at night. We found it very accessible to Isla Verde, Old San Juan and to the ferry in Farjardo. We also were able to sit by the pool which looked very clean. Luqillo Beach, which is less than 10 minutes away is great as well as the Kiosks and La Parilla Restaurant. We definitely will be coming back again! Thank you Rafael for allowing us to stay in your home and sharing the beauty of Puerto Rico with us.
We stayed at this location for 2 full weeks. The view was spectacular! You can open the sliders to the balcony and basically leave them open 24/7 to enjoy the sound of the waves and breeze, you'll be tempted not to leave. The beach is wonderful and you are able to walk for miles. The condo is exactly as pictured, very clean, wonderful kitchen. Security is excellent. Don't be afraid to walk to the local eateries during the day. Wonderful people. Difficult to find the entrance, get specific directions, especially if you are arriving late.
Amazing ocean view, nicely decorated modern condo in older building. About the only thing I could add to the other reviews is if you are arriving late and don't speak Spanish, get specific instructions on where the condo is in the building, perhaps a sketch with instructions for finding it. Really enjoyed stay once we got in. Would recommend this property.
This condo is great. We stayed over the week of Christmas and had a wonderful time. Modern furniture and appliances, spacious balcony overlooking the ocean. Great views and fresh breeze 24/7. Loved falling asleep listening to the waves. Everything you need is included...dishes, pillows, blankets, towels, TV, wifi. The owner and local Realtor were very helpful and easily accessible over phone and email if we had any questions. There is secure parking, 24/7 security guards on site, pool access and beach access nearby. Grocery store across the main street near restaurants. Quick drive to Luquillo beach and kioscos for food & drinks. Great area, peaceful and friendly. Will recommend to friends & family, and looking forward to returning for future vacations.
The condo does look just like the pictures. Rafeal is so polite and welcoming! I really enjoyed being able to support someone local! I loved that the condo felt like home! The breeze and view were amazing! We didn't want to leave! We had such a great time! Just to let you know, Amigo's is right across the street. It's a full grocery store. It took us like day to find it after exploring but we picked up the area really fast! The people were friendly and we loved being so close to the Rainforest / Fajardo to hop to Culebra by ferry! Thank you Rafeal, it's just what we needed! Enoc was also polite and friendly. The staff in general from the realty company,who I spoke with even stayed on the phone until we found the place and were inside the condo. Thank you for that! There are to many good things to say! We will be back! This place was clean and cozy! Loved the modern look! Merry Christmas Chad
The condo is located right on the beach. It is nicely decorated, clean and the view is amazing. The breeze from the balcony is very nice and we really didn't use the A/C in the condo. The building is very secure & clean and has a security guard always on duty. A key is required to enter the building and for the elevators. My husband and I will definitely be back next year!
The apt was just exactly like the picture. The view was Amazing and the breeze that entered the living room was wonderful. The ac in the apt was just right for sleeping at night since we were out and about all day. The apt was in perfect location to many must see activities. Although the surrounding neighborhood was a bit run down it was close to highway, shops and restaurants. Property was clean and included a parking spot in secure lot. Realtor Enoc was quick to respond and very helpful. Owner has awesome communication skills and is available via text :-) Overall we had a wonderful time and my kids were sad to leave. Would definitely come back!
Beautiful place as advertised super friendly communication with owner and realtor group will recommend to friends and relatives
Apartment was just as described. Well decorated, too. Condominium complex has extremely high level of security...to almost an extent that makes you wonder about the neighborhood. No worries about safety here.
This is an adorable condo. The balcony overlooks a natural breakwater; to the west is a surfers' beach with huge waves and strong currents,to the east is a sweet strolling beach with much gentler water. The condo is sparkling clean with granite counters in the kitchen and absolutely all pots and pans, coffee maker and microwave that anyone could want. Going a few minutes back west on the PR 3 is the entrance to El Yunque, the best known rainforest in Puerto Rico. Waterfalls and loads of birds! Going east / south is Fajardo, which houses the ferry terminals for Vieques and Culebra. Next time I'll spend a few days snorlking on Vieques! There is also a clean and safe balneario near Fajardo called Seven Seas - lovely! For dinner in Luquillo, the Kioskos (small, permanent beach bars) can't be beat. They are at the main balneario (public beach) of Luquillo, one exit west on PR 3. The condo is very well appointed and you'll sleep like a baby to the lullaby of the waves in the king size bed. I'll definitely return to explore more of the east and south of Puerto Rico.
Yes this neighborhood in Luquillo is very humble, however this building complex is very safe. As you enter building you have to enter through a gate and check in with security, the only way you can enter building and even use the elevator is with a key. This building is very old, however very clean. It has a pool, washer/dryer room, exercise room, on the beach (breath taking views) and even a rec room. Our car was parked underground (very safe). Our little family is by no means high maintenance and used this condo stay just for sleeping, since we were mostly exploring Puerto Rico. The apartment was nicely decorated. If you like to stay on grounds for entire vacation you will not be content here, you need to stay at a resort. We were fortunate to be in touch with Rafael (owner) he was very responsive by text, which was perfect for us. The property manager really wasn't, but I guess we didn't really need him for anything that Rafael didn't take care of. Erik's Gyros was so delicious for breakfast and lunch, you will go more than twice for sure....
We had a good time. Security was very helpful register us. Owner and realtor were very helpful as well. Place is clean and very well remodeled. Flat screen TV was cool! We traveled around so we never went to the pool. But it looked very nice. A little confusing to get to since you have to drive through the town of luquillo but smart phones these days that shouldn't be an issue. Will recommend to anyone and especially my family and friends. Thanks for a great stay!
Séjour agréable avec de belles balades de la plage la Pared à celle de Luquillo en passant par playa Azul.
