My wife and I, and our 2 boys, just stayed at Sol for 9 days. This was our first time staying in the apartment. The unit was perfect for our needs. There are 2 bedrooms, and enough space in the living room to sleep a visitor or two. The patio off the living room looks out over the ocean, as well as you can see El Yunque in the distance. Nothing like waking up in the AM and sitting on that patio getting ready for the day. The rooftop patio is awesome. Our boys, 8 and 10, were all over the small pool. We would go to the beach during the morning and early afternoon, then hit the rooftop pool for the remainder. The view off the rooftop is tremendous. The covered section allowed us to enjoy the pool area, yet stay protected from the hot sun.
The unit is kept clean and well stocked for a rental. The wifi is easy to access...and its very reliable. We travel with kids, so laundry is a constant. Fortunately, there is a Washer and Dryer in the common hallway which you can use. Even better they provide you with some laundry detergent.
When you rent a unit from Homeaway or VRBO or wherever, you may send a check to someone, and get a set of keys, and a "call me if you have any problems"....and never see anyone again. However, at SOL there is a Property Manager, Anna, who is nearby and extremely responsive. She is extremely accommodating and willing to assist you in any way. We reached out to her a couple times, and on each occasion she was very helpful. Yes, she speaks English and Italian!
In addition to Anna, there is Yvelisse. She is the person responsible for housekeeping, and other upkeep matters. She does not clean your room, but she can help you if you need anything. Yvelisse is soooo nice. I don't believe she speaks a lot of english, but she'll figure it out.
Both Anna and Yvelisse are fantastic. They are there to make your stay problem free...and they do a great job.
I've been coming to PR for 18 years, since my wife was born and raised in the area. Our kids love it. We've stayed in almost every hotel in the San Juan area, and some of the outer resort properties. The Condado/Ocean park area has lots to offer and is considered one of the more desirable areas to live in.
So.....would we return and would we recommend this to others? Absolutely. If you are looking for a rental that sleeps 4-5 (maybe 6) comfortably, then you should just stop your search and rent this unit. It's that simple.
