We went down with two other couples for an extended weekend and loved every second of our stay. El Yunque National Forest is fifteen minutes by car and old San Juan is 25 minutes depending on traffic. I recommend renting a car, as there isn't much in Loiza itself and taxi service is inconsistent, this has it's advantages as the beaches are not crowded and everything is very reasonably priced. We spent most of our time in Lissette's beautiful penthouse, the place is huge, several balconies, a gorgeous roof area, and a kitchen that was very well stocked with cooking supplies. We cooked most of our meals ourselves to maximize drinking/beach time. We were very close to the beach, it did become a bit tricky a few times as there was only one set of keys for the six of us and keys were needed to get from the beach back to the villa. This place overall was everything that we were looking for and Lissette helped make our experience awesome.
