This place was an extremely good value for the location, which is beach front. The deck is huge and we spent a lot of time looking out on the beach. This location is good if you plan on doing a lot of outdoor adventures because it's close to El Yunque rain forest and all the kayaking tours and ferries in Fajardo to the other islands. We have a young child so didn't opt to do the trip to Culebra or kayaking, but we took him twice to the public Luquillo beach where we paid $4.28 for parking since the waters are very shallow and calm. My son also enjoyed the rougher waves in front of the condo. We also took a scenic drive on the coast on route 901 in Yabucoa, which is one of the most beautiful drives I have ever taken in my life where there are great views of the bright blue Carribean Sea on a winding road up and back down the mountain. Then we also drove to and ate at a very picturesque bay in Naguabo, which is 30 minutes, I think from the condo. One of the most beautiful bays I have ever seen in my life.
The furniture in the pictures look dated for some reason, but in reality the armchair and the plaid futon are relatively new and clean. The bedroom has a huge king sized bed, which was enough for us and our small son. The parking was plentiful.
The one problem we had was trying to use the DVD player as another reviewer wrote since we had brought our son's DVDs. We gave up and fell asleep exhausted trying to figure it out. Also would have been nice to have wi-fi in the condo for our tablet. The week we were there, there were a lot of trade winds, which put us to sleep, but it could get loud and the door was so heavy to open and close, the winds were that powerful. We could have used it in the lobby, but didn't bother. The building seems a little dated as is the lobby, playground, and pool area, but for the price of one week it was still a great value and we really got our money's worth in Pedro's clean condo. There's a lot of clean towels and bed linens available. It's also a safe neighborhood. My husband and I took turns walking in the early morning on the streets and the beach. You can even walk to the public beach on the western side, which was a very beautiful walk and always seemed safe. The down side is the area of La Pared Beach and the town square did not have much in terms of cafes, restaurants, shops, etc. It looked like a ghost town. We did get lucky though with a festival on Saturday, with lots of arts and crafts we bought.
