Great Place to Stay

This condo was perfect for our trip to Puerto Rico. It is small, but just right for the two of us. It is right on the main strip in Condado, and surrounded by restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, etc. There is a Starbucks right next door and a Walgreens next to that. Ali Baba's Turkish Restaurant has amazing, authentic mediterranean food, and is just a block away (follow the sign as it sits just back from the street in a courtyard.)
The beach is directly across the street, with only a short walk to the beach access. The bus stop is also only a short walk, and cabs are more than plentiful on the strip and in front of all the hotels. There are several car rental agencies within easy walking distance. We weren't all that interested in the resorts and casinos in Condado, but used this as our home base while exploring the country: Old San Juan, Ponce, Guanica, El Yunque Rainforest, Luquillo Beach, etc. The country is small enough for day trips, and it was great to have the condo and restaurants of Condado to come back to at night. We were able to park our rental car on the street Sunday and Monday night (with no meter to pay on Sunday), although if you have a car on a Friday or Saturday night it may be hard to find a spot, but there are parking lots where you can pay to park.
The condo was clean and well-maintained. The guards at the front desk were all very helpful and nice, even helping us find parking. However, the building has many permanent residents, so do not expect the front lobby staff to be like what you'd find in a hotel- they are not really there to be tour guides or incredibly friendly. There is a laundry area on the second floor which was very convenient. The pool area is nice and well kept as well.
David was great to work with, and brought us a second set of keys when we locked ourselves out of the condo one night. We received our security deposit back the day after we got home. We would definitely recommend this lodging and stay here again in the future.
