OMG! will be the first words to come out of your mouth the minute you open the doors to the balcony of the apartment. The building seems to be standing in the middle of the ocean. The view is simply majestic. A friend of mine was staying at the Wyndham Resort and decided to leave and hang out with me instead. Just for the view. Trust me it's exotic. I recommend it very strongly with two thumbs up. Wish I had a third thumb to point up. In all seriousness, I couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, clean and safe place to be. It's very close to El Yunque which is a must see on your visit. It's also a driving distance to San Juan if you enjoy the night life. I don't want to stay anywhere else on my next visit to Puerto Rico. This little paradise in the sky is a real bargain.

Our vacation in Luquillo Beach was great. The condo had a beautiful scenary it is Paradise in the sky, you couldn't ask for a better one. The property was very clean and very well maintained. Sleeping accomadations were good. The condo was well equiped with everything one can need. Ms. Norma is a very good owner, she has very good customer service.She nows how to prepare her condo. It was paradise and a dream come ture. I would recommend this property to all my friends.The only problem that we had was the consturction. The consturction has been going on for the last 7 months and it was incovenience to get to the lobby in your car. The pool was not available parking wasn't the best and it looks like it will be a while before this construction is complete. I would return back to this location but I will make sure that the construction is complete and the pool ready.
Great place for a great value. Everyone was friendly. Well maintained. Luquillo is a perfect location, about 45 minutes from San Juan. I could've lived on the balcony! The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep and was our morning alarm clock! I would definitely recommend this place. It seems to be an older area and building, but the view is priceless! I rate it 5 stars
This is a great condo! Fully equipped and furnished. The kitchen had everything you need to prepare meals. The quality of the towels, dishes, etc., were all top of the line. We found chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and coolers to enjoy the beach which was an added bonus! There is beach access directly from the property and a very nice pool. The views were amazing and we enjoyed sunrises and sunsets from the balcony on the hammock listening to sounds of the ocean. The entire condo is air conditioned and building is very safe and secure with round the clock security.
The owner of the condo is amazing! She provided information for local attractions, restaurants, etc.. She was always available to us if we had questions. She takes pride in her property and her customer service. You can't go wrong with this condo! I highly recommend it! We will be back to enjoy her hospitality soon!
We just arrived home from a four night stay. The condo was very clean and well kept with everything you need to feel right at home. The view from the balcony is amazing!!! It was a little hard to find because of all the one way streets, but the owner Norma was so kind and helpful when we called with questions;) the security staff was friendly and helpful as well. We had such an amazing time, the kids loved it! I would recommend anyone with or without kids looking for a beautiful place to stay on the beach, to stay here! I would most definitely stay here again!!
Loved this place for the views of the ocean and great ocean breezes. My favorite part of the day was sitting on the balcony drinking coffee and watching the sun rise. The living area was a little small for a family of 5. Our one complaint was the pool hours of 9:00 to 6:00. We spent our days on the beach and would have liked to relax in the evening by the pool.
We just returned from a 4 night stay here. Overall we had a great stay. We were 3 adults and a 7 month-old baby. We mainly chose this apartment because of it's proximity to SJU, nearby beaches and that baby gear was provided.
-apartment is as described, very clean and spacious. A/C in all the rooms, washer/dryer, etc. All the necessities for the beach were provided. pack and play, high chair and basic stroller were clutch, no need to lug this on plane.
-the view from the balcony is breathtaking. i don't think any resort in the area could match this
-location: very central, you do need a car though. it's an easy 35 minute drive from the airport (but feels removed from San Juan's urban sprawl). the nearby beaches are some of the nicest on mainland PR. the town beach in Luquillo is a long stretch of white sand, mountains in the background, good for swimming, has plenty of palm trees for shade. we also drove to Seven Seas beach about 20 minutes away in Fajardo which was equally beautiful and had some smaller/more secluded beaches nearby that you could hike to. the bio bay is also near here. the rainforest at El Yunque is an easy drive from the apartment (25 minutes or so). we didn't go to Culebra or Vieques but the ferries are close.
-Norma, the owner, was very responsive to emails and so easy to work with
-the price seemed very reasonable
-the building is aging and needs work. the common areas and pool area are kind of drab and no one really hangs out there (gives the building a somewhat vacant feel). the water in the pools is not heated, was too cold to splash around in with the baby, though i'm sure in warmer months it's fine.
-no direct beach access from building. the gate from the building to the beach to the east was kept locked. staff told us the beach was "not safe" and mainly for locals. the beach just west of the building is a short walk but you need to leave the property and it's not as nice-looking or secluded.
-as other reviews mentioned, the immediate neighborhood is pretty poor and depressed, though not dissimilar to most parts of latin america. the building is secure though and we felt safe walking to nearby beaches and Boardriders restaurant.
I recommend this place, particularly to families. It's a great value and the apartment has everything you need and an awesome view. The building isn't perfect but if you just use the apartment as a place to stay while exploring the area, you'll be happy!
Luquillo is a small town right on a turquoise beach. About 45 minutes from the San Juan airport, Luquillo is close to many attractions including snorkeling, sailing, golfing, deep sea fishing, surfing, swimming, hiking, El Yunque Rain Forest, horse back riding, go carting, ATVs at Hacienda Carabali as well as the Bio Bay in Fajardo. Zip lining, waterfall tours, lighthouse tours, Kioskos, restaurants, bars, the Kioskos, local food and entertainment are all available nearby. San Juan is close and offers many attractions including old forts, shopping and the nearby Bacardi factory tour. Enjoying the secluded beach area by the condo.
