***Post-hurricane update ***
We were extremely fortunate that our villa and the Ocean Villas complex was not materially impacted by the hurricane. The damage was mostly with the landscaping and was cleaned up months ago. The power has been fully restored, and we are ready to receive visitors! In fact, we have hosted hurricane victims, rescue workers, and guests since late September 2017.
Ocean Villas is a beachfront, luxury condominium complex inside the gated grounds of the world-renowned Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Resort. The resort is adjacent to the awe-inspiring El Yunque rainforest, yet only a 30-minute drive to the city of San Juan. The Ocean Villas complex has 5 private pools and a huge expansive beach providing easy access to the warm Caribbean Sea. You will have a relaxing tropical experience while a short stroll to the Wyndham Rio Mar gives you access to the excitement and nightlife of the resort's numerous entertainment options including restaurants and a full-service casino.
The entire trip was perfect. Christine, the owner and Euniz, the Property Manager were awesome. Quick responses and showed us everything to know about the area. Villa was super clean and spacious with quick access to the private beach and 2 pools. Everything needed in a home was supplies for us. The area has many great restaurants and the rain forest. I 100% booking here and I will do so again in the near future!
We've stayed in several Ocean Villas and this one is right at the top. Newly remodeled. Christine and Euniz are extremely responsive and will make sure you have a great stay.
Great location and neat maintained. Euniz, the property manager was on top of things with the new precautions we have to take now and reachable.
Beautiful view, beautiful beaches, conveniently located!
The pictures from the balcony on the website don’t do justice to the real thing. Right on the beach! The condo is a roomy one bedroom. It is tastefully decorated, but also comfortable. The kitchen is very small, but we weren’t doing very much cooking. We were very close to the hotel and activities there, but could also relaxin the condo. The owner was so easy to work with. Great about providing information right from the initial renting of the unit. Totally recommend this unit and owner.
This is the second year we stayed at this beautiful villa. It has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The beach is outstanding and we enjoy long walks every morning after drinking coffee on the veranda overlooking the ocean. The bed is super comfortable and there are a variety of pillows to choose from. We loved the new furniture on the veranda. The complex is very quiet and it is not crowded at all. If you stay here you will definitely want to come back. We definitely will!
My family truly enjoyed our stay at Rio Grande - Beachfront Villa at the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort. Easy access to the pool, hot tub and beautiful ocean was a huge plus! A very family friendly resort and location. The condo was clean, comfortable, and gorgeous. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the patio and looking at the ocean!
The Ocean Villa property was clean and well maintained. Very quiet and peaceful location. We enjoyed our vacation.
Great property and beautiful beach- we loved it!
My wife and I stayed at the Villa for a week over Christmas. It was AWESOME! Clean, beachfront, great views! Euniz, the property manager was amazing. She could not have been more accommodating and friendly. I would absolutely recommend this Villa and location. We will return again soon. 5 Stars all the way!
We had a great honeymoon in PR. Lovely weather and the condo had close proximity to many worthwhile activities. However, they were doing renovations on the property so if you plan to spend your time there, you might prefer going to the neighboring resort. Work can be heard and equipment seen throughout the property so there seemed to be a disconnect between the property management and the on site staff. We were woken one morning by a painter working on our patio. We were on the go most of our trip so we made it work thanks to the close resort property where there was no work being done. The bed in the bedroom was super comfortable and the AC worked great. Also plenty of room in the bathroom to get ready. There is a washer and dryer in the unit but it is super small so not very handy for doing loads beyond just a few items. We grabbed groceries at a nearby store and the fridge was nice for these items. Overall a very pleasant trip but there were some kinks that visitors should be made aware of ahead of time so they know what to expect.
My husband, 2 small children and myself stayed for 5 nights. The location of the condo is fantastic. Beach is great, pools are nice and condo has everything you need to enjoy the beach. We also enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants at the Wyndham. Our only complaint is that the entire property was under renovation the whole time we were there. Every day there were painters right in front of the balcony (and on it) which made it very difficult to enjoy as the machines were loud and there was little privacy. There were signs up and even a document asking owners to be sure to tell their guests about the construction. We were not told about any of this which was incredibly frustrating. Christine did offer us a free cabana rental which was kind but unfortunately we would’ve preferred to have been made aware of the construction up front as we likely would’ve made a different choice in booking. Again great place that I am sure will be fantastic once renovations are complete, just wish there was more transparency upfront.
This was the ideal place to get away for a few days, without losing productivity. My husband and I could each work for several hours and then take a dive into the ocean. Christine thought of everything, from beach chairs to boogie boards. A stop at the grocery store was all we needed. We will definitely be coming back!
Amazing experience ! Loved it!
We really enjoyed our stay. The property had everything we could have needed!. We will definitely be back!!!!
Looking to book another trip/stay at this same location in December but this time with the kids.
The beautiful accommodation exceeded our expectations! Not only is it perfectly located (ocean, pools, Wyndham resort, restaurants, El Yunque...) the villa has everything you need to relax and enjoy this incredible island. Edwin checked us in and could not have been nicer and more helpful. Christine defines SUPER host as she is communicative, helpful and extremely professional. We will definitely return and would love to reserve Christine’s amazing villa again!
This property has it all. The location is beachfront and has everything you might want. The beach is not crowded and the water is great. The condo is spotless and the elevator is a big plus. I would definitely return.
I love this place and the very thoughtful owners that are completely attentive and accommodating!! It feels like a paradise home away from home not just for the location but for the effort made to make our experience effortless! You need for nothing! Thank you for another great experience....we will be back!!
This condo is perfect if you want all of the access to the amenities of the Wyndham Resort without the crowdedness of the actual resort. Steps from the beach. Access to 3 different pools. The restaurants and small eateries on the resort are all great. Short drive to El Yunque which is a “must see.” The condo itself was squeaky clean with all the amenities you could ask for... parking spot provided was great and close by. My wife and I would definitely come back to this condo in the future. Highly recommended!!!!
We had a wonderful time! The amazing view and the apartment are just as described in the rental platform. They are well organized and we found everything we needed very easily. The pools are large, clean and beautiful! Plenty of beaches and places to visit!! We hope to be back soon!!
We had a wonderful stay. Very easy and relaxing. We loved the beautiful view. The property was wonderful inside and out. Great for families. Excellent location to lol of the activities we wanted to do. Amazing service.
Our family with two teenage boys had a wonderful stay. Beautiful villa with spectacular ocean views. Loved the palm trees and we enjoyed swimming in the infinity pool every night. Kitchen was well equipped and there is a closet with body boards and games for indoor and beach fun. Great accommodations and great hosts!
Starting from the owner quick response, tried to answer all my questions, always available. The apartment was beautiful, clean and the views breathtaking. We were there the 4th of July week. And it was nice and peaceful. Definitely recommend this place and can't wait to go back. The unit manager it's always available to answer any question you have.
Our stay was what we wanted and even more! We chose to go here for our honeymoon... When we got there they had a painting that had our names in a heart on the beach painted for us on a canvas. Then next day we had a fruit basket on our table when we came up from the beach. The view was even more spectacular than the pics...Another factor I loved was that the beach or pools were never crowded...My husband and I joked about having our own private beach, because we were the only ones out there. Overall great experience and I would definitely recommend to any and everyone! Thanks again for everything!
The property was perfect for what my wife and I were looking for! We had a great view, ample space and could be on the beach in one minute. The villas were quiet and the beach was empty so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. It was a much better atmosphere than the hotel. We were also happy to be so close to El Yunque and the Luquillo kiosks. The welcome book in the villa was very helpful and we appreciate the fruit basket and beer given to us as our welcoming gift!
Property kept clean and maintained. Beautiful landscapes and pools clean. Loved, loved Ocean Villa 8291. And big advantage being so close to hotel.
From the start of our stay at the Grand Wyndham Rio Mar Ocean Villa until the last day our Family had an Incredible Time! The Room was more than accommodating the view from the living room and Bedroom were Spectacular!!! All amenities and then some were at our disposal including Beach Towels, Beach toys for the toddlers and Teens, portable beach chairs, kitchen utensils, Pots and Pans, TV with Cable Service and Ceiling. Fans and Air units in each room. This Place was AMAZING! Online Pics of the Villa do not do justice of how beautiful the Resort is. We will definitely booking this place again on our next Family Vacation! The Torres Family
The condo was perfect. Everything was exactly as described and we appreciated the great communication from the owner and her on site manager. It was great to have everything ready and waiting for us. The local tips and recommendations were a much appreciated added bonus! We’d definitely would stay there again and highly recommend it to friends and family!
My husband and I took a long weekend and found this great place. It is just as advertised. Loved sitting on the porch each morning having breakfast and watching the palm trees sway in front of the beautiful blue ocean. The villa was clean, spacious, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The beach towels provided were extra large and thick, an added bonus. Lots of pool and beach items were also provided. The check in and check out process was a breeze. The property management company even supplied a fruit basket and coffee. What a treat to walk along the soft sandy beach each day. Although we did not take advantage of any Wyndham resort amenities, we did walk through the pool area and it was quite lovely. The villa is in a great location, very close to El Yunque rainforest and the bio bay at Fajardo, both of which we visited and recommend. The owners provided lots of information prior to our visit so we were well prepared for what to pack, where to eat, and outings available. Their food recommendations where spot on. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful, quiet, and restful retreat.
I can't say enough nice things about this property. We were with two other couple who also rented two other units in the same building, but our owners had gone the extra mile to make our stay the best. They left a wonderful information notebook with tons of good info along with the guest pass for easy reentry to the complex which our friends units did not have, and our check in and check out process was seamless. As first time visitors these little extras were quite helpful.. The condo was spacious, comfortable and very clean and the whole resort beautiful. We would not hesitate to rent this again.
This place was beyond my expectations! The villa was beautiful, the facilities and all it offered was perfect and the views were breathtaking! We were literally feet away from the ocean..we had 5 pools to choose from and all the adventures that Puerto Rico has to offer was very close! We will definitely rent this place again! And come back to this area of Puerto Rico! Thanks Christine and Euniz for everything!
Great. Quiet spot to spend a week on the beach and at the pool with our family.
We stayed the first week of March 2019. We loved the condo and the facilities it comes with. The pool and pool area and very clean. The beach is as close as the pictures show. We felt very safe and secure the entire time we were there. We would leave our beach towels out by the pool to dry while having lunch in the condo. It was great. There is a lot to do that is very close by so we made plenty of day trips and came back to the pool in the afternoon/evening time. This is a great place for anyone looking to get away as it isn't noisy or crowded. Very relaxed atmosphere. The condo itself was very well put together and very clean. Euniz was fantastic and there for whatever questions we had. She was extremely prompt whenever something did come up and really made us feel comfortable. We loved our trip and had a great time. We will be looking forward to a return trip in the future.
Pictures on the site are accurate. On site manager was available but we never really needed her. Proerty was well appointed with beach towels, chairs and toys, coolers. Bedroom was very comfortable, spacious. Kitchen is well appointed with all the basics. Claim that it sleeps 6 comforably is a stretch though. Information included with check in instructions was very inclusive, thorough, except for location of parking spot, which is right across the street from the elevator. It has only one access point to go in and out. Kind of pricey, but would definitely consider staying there again
Christine and Euniz were incredibly gracious and hospitable hosts. The view was unbeatable. The property is fully recovered from hurricane Maria. We will definitely return to the ocean villas.
We had a wonderful time - just steps from the beach and pool. The apartment had everything we could need. Would definitely stay here again.
Had an awesome stay. Unbelievable views. Super clean and comfortable room. Great pools (which were nearly vacant). Hope to return soon!
We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. We have stayed at Ocean Villas before but we liked it better than the rest. The unit was clean, centrally located and the improvements that have been made make it much more comfortable than the others. We are already planning our next stay!
Our week stay was excellent. The Wyndham Rio Mar facilities are top notch and the villa was comfortable. The area was quiet and allows for maximum relaxation. We loved our stay!
The property was okay.. the view was fabulous and it was right on the ocean. It was nice and the property manager was very helpful. The door was broken and hard to close and the shower curtains were very hard to slide back and forth.. other then that it was a nice place!
First of all, let me say even though there are still remnants of Hurricane Maria in some areas, there are some beautiful areas as well. Puerto Rico is once again back on the come up! Next up, our beautiful condo! The pictures don't do it justice! It was fully stocked with everything. The view from the balcony was heavenly! The king sized bed was very comfortable. You have to type in a keycode for entry to the condo, so no need for a key....big plus. There's an infinity pool and a lap pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas to use. Wyndham Grand Resort right next door where you pretty much got access to all the amenities the resort offers except the pool. Make sure to go to the Marbella Restaurant for a great breakfast buffet and the 5 o'clock Somewhere Bar for drinks. Ask for the Ziggy Zaggy (me and my wife's favorite) and get Alex to make it for you! There's even a casino there if you like to gamble. You also have jet ski rentals right at your fingertips on the beach. Great local restaurants right around the corner. The two best were Don Pepe's and Terraza Montemar. Overall, this was a great trip with beautiful accommodations. Shout out to the owner Christine and to the property manager Euniz for their great hospitality. Thanks for having the condo ready in excellent condition even though it was a very last minute stay. We will definitely be back to Puerto Rico soon and hope this condo is available when we do. If not, I guess we'll just wait to come when it is available...lol! Thanks again.
We just returned home from an amazing stay at this property and have nothing but positive feedback. We felt like the whole complex was ours only. Lots of privacy and the condo's view was spectacular for sure. Despite a major hurricane, they have worked hard to get the property back in pristine shape. The only thing to really share which is not the owner's fault is that we didn't have access to the Rainforest due to the damage from the Hurricane. Just a heads up. There is a really nice small hike that leads to a small river which is fun to play on the boulders and test your balance skills if you are adventurous. But as far as the rental property, A Plus!
The property was very nice, bed was comfy, kitchen was well outfitted. We really enjoyed the porch overlooking the pools and ocean. We will be contacting this owner again next time we visit!
The Villa was clean and spacious. Loved the ocean views! The pools were great and the property was beautiful! We loved taking walks down the beach to the resort. We plan to return someday!
The apartment was perfect for our family of 4. We were able to entertain family members that visited and enjoy the pool/beach. We felt safe with the security on the premises. The property manager was always accesible by phone to answer promptly any questions. The apartment is well equipped to accommodate the needs of a family. The check in and check out process was very straight forward. We are looking forward to be back as we visit PR twice a year to visit our family.
Excellent spot right on the nice wide and clean beach. Pools were very nice and spacious. Villa was furnished nicely, air conditioning worked well. Even though most sites in PR were crowded, complex was only about one-quarter full. My son and I really enjoyed your boogie boards to hit the waves with on the beach. Only difficulty was check-in, as we did not think to check our e-mail, and did not have anyone around. Luckily found a very helpful security guard who called Euniz to provide the key code. Sometimes the arm on the parking lot does not go up, as the motor is running, but does not always lift. Otherwise, a lovely place to spend a week, thanks!
The beach was beautiful, although pretty rough. The condo was perfect and had everything we needed. The pools were clean and refreshing. The Villas are only a 15 minute drive from El Yunque and less than 30 minutes to Kayaking and snorkeling.
My daughters and I have busy schedules now that one of them is in college and the other is just starting high school so we needed time away to relax. Right when we entered the condo we knew we made the right choice! The view, condo, and hosts were the best which made our vacation incredible. The El Yunque Nat'l Forest was so much fun...we went hiking, zip lining, swimming, and loved the waterfalls. We found a great place to eat healthy; Degree 18! We went there 3 times...and tried a different smoothie or acai bowl each time. Definitely a place we want to visit again. We've never been to Puerto Rico before but want to return and will book here again for sure.
The property was incredible. If we ever go back I'll look into this place again. Most of the activities we did were an hour to two hours away but it was worth the driving to stay in this place.
Nothing but good things to say!! Beautiful property and family friendly. I didn't want to leave. Best vacay ever!!
We were so impressed with this beautiful condo. Our family of four was very comfortable. The pools were amazing and we loved being steps from the beach. The condo was well stocked with beach toys as well! We also very much appreciated the in unit laundry! The condo has everything you could need! It was so easy to walk over to the Wyndham for dinner or a drink. We definitely hope to be back again!!! Thank you!
Very comfortable, clean, well-appointed unit with a fantastic view. Good location, close to El Yunque, with plenty of local food options nearby. Both the owner and the on-site manager were very responsive and helpful. Thanks for a great stay in Puerto Rico!
S was our 3rd stay at this complex and we love it! This unit was beautiful clean and perfect for us. We cooked in 3 of the 4 nights!
Just returned from 5 days in paradise! I can't say enough wonderful things about the experience! Christine bent over backwards to accommodate our crazy flight schedules. The villa is beautiful, impeccably clean and the view is the most beautiful ever! Euniz (property manager) had everything perfect for us on our arrival and answered every question that came up during our stay within a very brief period of time. It was so convenient to have the beach and pool literally right outside our door. And there is a great paved walkway over to the Wyndham hotel right beside the villas. Great pools, music, food and entertainment right at the hotel. I would highly recommend getting a rental car, though, since the airport is a half hour away and if you want to do any sightseeing (a must), you will need one. Free parking at the villas as well. Lots of really fun things to do in the area, such exploring the rainforest, ATV riding, golf, tennis, jet skiing, kayaking and boating, trips to Old San Juan, etc. Our teenagers loved it and so did we! Can't wait to go back. You won't be disappointed!
We had a great experience staying at this property. It was clean, modern, and beautifully decorated. The views were amazing from the balcony; and the pools and the beach just outside were lovely. The guide that the hosts emailed to us ahead of time was super-helpful, from advice about rental cars, grocery shopping, and restaurants, to recommended excursions. Loved hiking in El Yunque, and getting smoothies at the Degree 18 juice bar in Palmer.
Our first trip to PR was a massive success thanks to Christine and Euniz and the beautiful space they rented to us. The one bedroom condo view alone was worthy of a 5 star rating; but throw in superb care taking from Euniz and Christine plus the pools, gorgeous beach and access to the Wyndham hotels amenities and you've hit the jack pot! Everything was easy; booking, check in/out, the condo had everything we could've needed and all the activities were all in walking distance which made it perfect for little ones. I loved how clean everything was! The condo was immaculate, the linens smelled delicious, and the grounds were just as well kept!! We rented a car and did some local things...horseback riding, hiking the rainforest, the Luquillo kiosks and shops, and walked through the art district (best food and juice was at Lluvios!). We hope to come back and when we do, we'd stay right here! Great place!! Great owners and property manager!!
The property is as pictured. All the furniture and amenities are in great condition. Kitchen is stocked with plenty of utensils for cooking and preparing meals if you decide to do so. There is a utility closet with beach toys and assessories we used everyday. The property is clean and private. Being adjacent to the Wyndham Resort Property is nice, but having the privacy of villa and your own beach area makes for a very relaxing experience. We were very satisfied with the villa. The location is perfect and the owners were attentive and responsive. We would stay here again when in Puerto Rico.
Our family had a wonderful time in this direct oceanfront condo on one of Puerto Rico's nicest beaches. Updated condo allowed our family to kick back in comfort and provided easy accessibility to Wyndham property and surfing beaches. Easily within driving distance to restaurants and rainforest to hike and zipline. We enjoyed the outdoor pools and hot tub and having morning coffee on the balcony. I recommend this place to families looking to relax and unwind.
Christine and family's wonderful condo was ours for a week in May 2016, and let us say the pictures are JUST AS ADVERTISED! We have stayed VRBO in Costa Rico, St. John and Hawaii and as my wife said "This is the best view and setting." When we were there the pools were quiet, clean, the grounds well kept. The condo has a comfy bed a TV in the living room (with two futons) and another in the bedroom. Just check out the pictures, they are accurate and what a lovely place to stay. If you want quiet, walk the beach for miles, if you want action (we didn't go) there is a casino in the "Wyndham" section, with a new Margueritaville, the fun and home-y Sea Breeze open air bar just a 100 yards away. If we ever get to Puerto Rico again, we will press "repeat"!! The Hein's, San Jose, California
The condo is even better than pictured, and comes equipped with everything you could need for an outstanding vacation, including beach towels, cooler, toys, etc. Our family rented directly from the owner after having some issues going through Flipkey, and I would highly recommend working with Christine--she was very responsive to our questions, and sent us a hospitality guide well in advance of the trip. The beach location in the Rio Mar complex is ideal, because the restaurants, bars, and amenities of the resort are right next door and easily accessed, but the crowds at the resort beach never extended to the villas. There is a resort fee to use the resort pools, but honestly, you won't want to use them as there is a lap pool, infinity pools, and hot tub in front of the villa; I swam every morning, and never had to compete for space, even during a spring break week. If you go, you will need a car, but all attractions are within 25 minutes. Be sure to hike El Yunque in the rainforest (10 min from villa), have the mofongo at Don Pepe (5 min), surf with Bob's East Island Surfing (20 min), travel to Icacos with Getaway Catamaran in Fajardo (25 min), and visit Old San Juan (35 min). There is much more to do, but those would be some recommendations. You will not regret staying at this great condo!
