Stay at San Juan Condo
Submitted: March 3, 2013
Stayed: February 2013
My husband and I spend a week at this condo in San Juan. We had a great time. The condo is beautifully decorated and has a full kitchen. We had friends who stayed at the Marriott across the street by pure coincidence. The Marriott charged them more than twice the amount that we paid for the condo, being a non all inclusive resort; I felt that its rates were way overpriced. Our friends had wished they would have booked a condo like ours, as they also felt that it was a much better deal.
Having a full kitchen was great because we were able to fix breakfast and lunch so we did not have to go out for every meal. Although, we did go out a lot, as there are many great restaurants in walking distance from the condo. The pool was nice, although we much more enjoyed swimming at the beach. We were able to use the beach chairs at the Marriott, as its guests don't have to wear wrist bands, so they did not know that we were not staying there. We could also go in and use tour services, people were happy to assists us even though we told them that we were not staying there.
The car rental place at the Marriott is a rip off! Don't rent a car at the hotels, as they all charge way too much. Use Europcar, they pick you up and bring you there; it's not that far, they charged about a third of what the hotel places charged.
Old San Juan is amazing; make sure to explore the forts, great historical experience!
Overall, beautiful condo and probably the best deal in the area, we would definitely go back! :D
Owner's Response: Dear Isabelle,
We would like to thank you so much for such a great review. It was indeed my pleasure to have facilitated your stay on the our wanderful apartment in the “Enchanted Island”, Puerto Rico.
I aim to satisfy all my guests by providing them with an affordable, convenient, safe and most of all cozy environments for their stay. The beach across the street/ Marriott Hotel, no doubt, is one of the many luxuries that the place has to offer and that you have enjoyed firsthand. Starbucks is also one of my favorite places to get my tea early in the morning while I’m reading the newspaper and then go to the beach.
The location is accessible to all the local restaurants, hotels, shops, hospitals and most of all transportation. Not that you would need to travel very far as everything is within walking distance of the place.
Your family is more than welcome to stay and enjoy the place. I know for sure that they will have an equally enjoyable experience.
I know that it’s hard to return home at the end of your stay, however it is a relief to know that our place will always be there waiting for your return. :)
Rolman & Ruperto.
