Enjoy the views of turquoise blue water and palm trees from this oceanfront 25 foot balcony! This spacious condo has all the amenities that families or couples need for a relaxing beach vacation. Many little extras such as: High Speed Wireless Internet, iron/board, blender, cooler, chairs and beach toys. Both Master and second bedroom have its' own A/C. Has all linens, pillows, comforters and towels. Condo is located inside the gated complex of Playa Azul which provides swimming pools, tennis, basketball, playgrounds. The beautiful Playa Azul crescent beach is just steps from the building and at a short walk West takes you to the famous Luquillo public beach (El Balneario) which has kayak rental, food, bathrooms and lifeguards. Close to San Juan and El Yunque, beautiful beaches. Will comfortably accommodate a family of seven, but it’s also perfect for three couples traveling together or as a romantic and extra-spacious getaway for two.

In addition, your building will be in a Gated community whose entrance is secured by a 24 hour guard. In addition, the building itself also has a 24 hours a day security guard: in the building lobby. There are two great places for a full breakfast in walking distance. And several excellent restaurants five minutes away, driving. The area specializes in Sea Food. And don't forget the Kiosks. A line of small shops where you can get a full local meal.

A WONDERFUL VACATION SETTING CLOSE TO THE OCEAN

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I found this apartment on the 10 floor of Playa Azul I
to be everything we wanted plus more. It was clean, spacious, and well cared for. The view from the balcony of the ocean and beach was uncluttered by parking lot, swimming pools or tennis courts. We felt completely safe and had easy access to grocery stores, restaurants or other stores. I would go back in a heart beat.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE !!

  • 5 of 5
My experience was truly amazing. Excellent value for the price ! Convenient location and many fun places to explore nearby. The view from the balcony is far more breathtaking than the photos. Very secure gated area to park in. I felt very safe with the security guards at the front gate. Shopping within walking distance. VERY clean and well taken care of property. I would love to call this place home !!

We were even able to make home cooked meals in the kitchen, and do our own laundry. The washer and dryer were a huge benefit to me. Spacious bedrooms and bathroom, the pictures are only a hint to how wonderful the property really is.

The private beach was amazing. It was not crowded and I enjoyed walking from the back of the building to the sand and ocean in just a few steps. The pool on the property was very clean and well maintained.

My favorite place to visit was El Yunque tropical rainforest which is surprisingly visible from the balcony ! I saw many beautiful waterfalls, lots of animals and spectacular scenery. It truly was paradise.

I generally do not write reviews but this is one vacation I will never forget. I can not think of anything negative to even say, only the exact opposite. I could write an endless amount of positives about the property, it was even better than described.

The owner Paul was so polite and responded to any question I had immediately. Five star customer service. I felt comfortable and welcome in this property. This was the total experience for me, far better than a generic hotel where you can barely contact any personnel.

Thank you to Paul for your generosity and answering all of my questions regarding the property. You are a kind and courteous homeowner. Many thanks for allowing me to stay in your home, I will return without a doubt ! I highly recommend this property !

OK, BUT NOT FANTASTIC.

  • 3 of 5
You simply cannot beat the location or the view from the terrace. Those two things alone made this a wonderful experience. Beyond that the unit is pretty dated. The AC did not work and the hot water was an issue. At first it didn't work at all. We contacted the owner and he was very quick to respond. Unfortunately he asked us to stop the touring that we were doing and drive back to the unit to leave the keys which was not very customer friendly. He had his maintenance guy come and then the water would work, but only for 3 minutes at the most. That made showers pretty unbearable and if there had been more than two of us it would have been a disaster.

Also, the AC in the master did not work well. I asked him for guidance on how to operate it and never recieved a response. The time of year worked out as the breeze from the terrace helped cool air circulate but in the summer this would have been intolerable.

This place would work fine for the low maintenance traveler but if you are expecting creature comforts, a kitchen to cook in or decent showers you want to look elsewhere.

BEAUTIFUL BEACH AND VIEW!

  • 4 of 5
Overall, a good value for this 2 bedroom condo right on playa azul beach! The beach has soft sand, good swimming (especially for younger kids), and is not crowed at all. The 10th story views of ocean, beach, and El Yunque are incredible. The condo itself is adequate, but really needs some updating. If updated, this condo would probably go for $400-$500 per week higher, the beach and views are that good! I would highly recommend this condo for those looking for a great location, beach, and views and are on a budget.

Pros
Beach-right on an outstanding, sandy, uncrowded beach (great for young kids too)
Views-beautiful 10th floor views of the ocean and El Yunque rainforest from the balcony.
Location-only 40 minutes from SJU and 15 minutes from Fajardo Ferry Terminal (to take ferry to Vieques and Culebra)
Local Food/Beaches-minutes from Luquillo Beach and Kiosks (do to #42…. Great food)
Good value
Clean and simple
Secure-super friendly condo complex security… and felt safe
Shopping-10 min drive to Wal-Mart… 5 min to Walgreens
Communication-easy to communicate with host
Kids beach toys and boogie boards-a great unexpected perk
Washer/dryer in kitchen
Quiet Residents-friendly (mainly retired)


Cons
Condo needs updating and some minor fixing
Condo complex is adequate
Internet use-could only use one device at a time
Occasionally loud at nigh (due to out of complex noises)
Black out shades/blinds would be nice
Hot water for showers lasts for 3min tops… than cool water (never extreme cold)
No dishwasher

HARD DECISION

  • 3 of 5
o.k. I usually do not write reviews however feel like I need to... First of all the view was breathtaken.. Also the condo was very clean. but it kinda stops there. You only get one set of keys and that is fine but you can not get into the building with out a key.. theres a security gaurd that gets really annoyed after the 2nd or third time having to unlock the door for you. Theres no ac in the living room and you know that going in but it is hot.. I mean hot... Theres suppose to be an ac in both rooms however It is still out in one of the bedrooms and has been since the beginning of the year... also there was very little hotwater if any at all.. and the dishwasher was broken. Saying all of that... our stay was nice and the hammock was a hit.. however you knowning this going in if you are o.k. then you will have a nice stay.. it is very cheap for what you get it would have been alot nicer if the other things was fixed.. i would probally stay there again but i think if I got back i will splurge on a little more and get ac in all the rooms.. but good trip and the very clean...

A walk across the main avenue (RT-3) away from a modern 'Amigo' supermarket, a brand new Walgreens pharmacy, and fast- food eateries. 10 minutes away are more than 30 shops called Kioskos where inexpensive local food is sold. You have a brand new blender, toaster, washer and dryer, and an abundance of pots and dishes. A dining table for four, Cable television.
