Our stay in Puerto Rico was magical, in part because of our “base camp” located in Dorado. The house is perfectly situated for day trips to San Juan, Fajardo (Bio bay, scuba diving), Barcelloneta (Premium Outlets), and Orocovis (Zip lines). We found the house to be as described, very clean and very quiet. The kitchen area was small, (only one person could be in it), but the majority of cooking was done on the grill which is situated next to the outside dinner table. Being from the north I was certainly grateful for the window air conditioning units, the noise from them took some getting used to though.
The gated community is both a positive and a hassle. The feeling of security was genuine knowing how hard it was to gain access. Even with the owners alerting the guards, and me providing them with my information (name, address of the house, and the owner’s name) we still found it difficult to gain access.
Walgreens is a 2 minute walk from the house, perfect for snagging the small “at home” comfort items, and for getting any film developed. We ate at Ponderosa the first night, I do not recommend it unless necessary, and Morena the last night, which I highly recommend. I also highly recommend spending at least two days exploring San Juan, taking the pedestrian ferry from Catano is a definite plus. We will definitely return, seven days allows for limited activities and only scratches the surface of discovering Puerto Rico.
