AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 9 yr old son, 22 year daughter and I stayed here for the month of July and had a wonderful time. Rene was thorough, efficient, organized and very kind. He met us at the rental and went through every single aspect of the villa which was accurate to the last detail. We felt at home by the time he left. The villa is located in the northeast section of the island about a 25 minute drive to the airport in Isla Verde. You are 5 minutes from one of Puerto Rico's world renowned beaches, Luquillo; shopping at a nearby designer factory outlet and great local dining. El Yunque was a very short drive away, as well as the bioluminescent bay which gave us the opportunity to appreciate the wonders of mother nature at her best. The property was extremely well-kept, clean and had every amenity we could think of provided. Rene is a very nice person who cares about his villa and making his guest(s) have a stress-free and relaxing time and you feel this from the first time you speak with him. The only thing we had to do was a little bit of grocery shopping and that was it. Having the golf cart available made getting to the hotel and resident's pool a breeze. We've already recommended staying here to a few of our friends and look forward to staying here again on our next visit. We loved sitting on the balcony and being serenaded by the sounds of the coqui and equally enjoyed the view. We had the best of both worlds at our fingertips. The privacy and freedom of staying at a private residence AND the luxuries and activities of a 5 star hotel were the perfect combination for a restful, fun and exciting vacation. We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful vacation villa!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved staying here and I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Rene again! The villa was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. I have 3 teenagers, and our family of 5 was very comfortable here. We were able to buy groceries and eat some of our meals and snacks in the villa which was great, as the restaurants on the Wyndham property are pricey. Having the golf cart to use was a bonus, as we could use all the amenities of the Wyndham like the pools, beach chairs, Tiki hut, etc, and at the end of the day get in our golf cart and go back to our villa and enjoy a glass of wine on the awesome balcony. Rene and his wife Norma met us when we arrived, showed us everything in the villa, then took us driving around the Wyndham property to make sure we knew where everything was. The Villa was close to everything - the rain forest, Fajardo (for the catamarans/sail boats) and only 35 minutes from Old San Juan. Our stay was wonderful and I would highly recommend this villa!

Owner's Response: The awesome view from the porch will definitely delight your stay. Choice of 3 pools and the beach will also delight your vacation stay. "El Yunque Rain Forest" and other recreational places to visit close to Rio Mar will complete your vacation. Two challenging Golf Courses and Tennis Courts are also available in Rio Mar Resort. A Golf cart will also be provided.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5
I would not hesitate a moment in choosing to go back and stay at this place. Rene the host was truly a joy to work with and the villa was awesome. Very quiet except for a couple of nights so make sure you ask Rene who you could get a hold of if that happens. The golf cart was a definite plus since you are far away from the hotel pool which is nicer and the shuttle is not that reliable. Everything you need is in the villa including washing facilities and for us "older" guests, there are no steps. Enjoy. We plan on returning

Amazing retreat in Rio Mar resort

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the Rio Mar Resort area with good directions from the owner, Rene. The drive from San Juan on an early Friday evening was about 45 minutes. Rene met us at the resort entrance to tour the property. The villa is located in a gated resort area away from the downtown bustle of San Juan, in the northeast section of the Island, with easy access to San Juan and surrounding communities if desired. You'd want a car.

Rene & Norma's villa is a comfortable home. It's larger and more well equipped than the photos show. It was clean and well maintained, and we felt very safe. We were very pleased. Of 4 families vacationing together in 3 different villas at the resort, this was by far the best. The value, the location (on top a hill that has a million dollar view of the ocean, resort and golf course from our balcony) and the villa's amenities were incredible. Access to this villa is easy from parking out front, and no steps. The complex has a small pool and club house across from the villa but not heated, and preferred the beach club pool. It was not crowded (March), so we had free access to the beach, the pool and visiting the Wyndham Resort. We loved the space of the villa and was glad we elected not staying at the hotel. For a week's stay the two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a full kitchen, spacious living area, as well as a washer/dryer in the unit, made it very comfortable for everyone.

Our favorite spot was the balcony with incredible views, where morning coffee or evening drinks watching cruise ships pass by were something to look forward to. The use of the golf cart was helpful so we could split up and allow our small group to come and go to the beach at different times.

The villa is fully equipped. Everything is there that you'd want in your home. You can move in and pick up your groceries at a nearby store. Amigos and Walgreens is close by, and a few good local restaurants. The location has almost immediate access to the El Yunke Rain Forest, and we also enjoyed Zip Lining at the Rain Forest. The owners provide an information book with resort rules as well as nearby attractions and restuarants. This is most helpful. They also provided a cooler to take to the beach with you, as well as beach towels. There is very little these owners did not think about to equip this villa for your stay.

This is a great property for a Puerto Rico vacation. We'd recommend it!

Excellant

  • 5 of 5
Rene & Norma met us at the gate then gave us a tour of the condo followed by a tour of the resort area. The condo is just as he described. Everything was just great. The directions from the airport were very good for someone who had never been to Puerto Rica. View from the balcony is just amazing. We had a great time. The use of the golf cart makes getting around the complex and to the beach a breeze. A+

AMAZING STAY! Incredible views- SERENITY NOW! :)

  • 5 of 5
First, I’d like to commend the owners, Rene and Norma, for being such welcoming and helpful hosts. Always accessible & responsive throughout the booking process, and while we were there. They gave us a thorough walk-through of the home and also gave a tour of the resort. We are frequent travelers and have rented many homes before – the care and attention that this couple has for their home and their guests exceeded our highest expectations. I share this because professionalism and service is the most important aspect of any vacation experience.

The villa itself is absolutely incredible! It is as beautiful as the pictures suggest, so let me speak beyond the aesthetics. The location of the villa (perched atop a hill) and the layout of the villa allows for beautiful breezes to go through the entire home. The views are magnificent and because of its location, it is peacefully quiet. The home has central air and air conditioners in each bedroom (important for summer visits!)

The Resort is beautiful and we have stayed here several times before (even back when it was a Westin), but we had always rented a hotel room- never again! Rene and Norma give competitive rates because they understand the costs affiliated with traveling with a family. We met people at the pool who paid much more for a small hotel room than we did. (If you know how to make your own bed- then it’s the way to go!) We also saved money by cooking instead of being limited to pricey resort food. My family joked that I cooked more on vacation than I do at home! (To which I answered- “if I had this kitchen view I’d cook every day!”) It was fun and easy to drive around the resort with the golf cart but we also rented a car to get around town. (La Parrilla @ Luquillo Beach and Richie’s Café around the corner are highly recommended.) The rain forest is across the street from the resort where you can swim in waterfalls. You can easily drive to Ceiba airport for a puddle jumper flight to Culebra (home of Flamenco Beach, the #2 beach in the world.)

Helpful hint: while the villa comes equipped with Wi-Fi, connectivity was sporadic. (I don’t think this is specific to this villa, but more so the overall service vs. the mainland US.) Bring DVDs if your kids need electronic entertainment, and know that the hotel lobby has free wi-fi if you’re in a dire situation for work. But hopefully, you planned a vacation to Puerto Rico to disconnect!!

We can’t say enough great things and hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: If you like care and attention on your vacation travel, then this is the place to come. I highly recommend you read my "reviews". Enjoy riding around in the Golf Cart included and park it right next to the beach. Visit my villa and feel like been at home.
