Relax and enjoy your down time in our spacious unit. Go up to the terrace and catch some last rays of sun, sip a drink at the bar, read a book, listen to some music or maybe BBQ up a feast for your friends and family. Watch TV in the upstairs family area or downstairs in the main living room. 2 I-Pod stations give you music in both areas and you can surf the net Wi-Fi from wherever you want.
Walk down the stairs from the unit and wade right into to the river pool to cool yourself off or take a little walk up the beach and sink your feet into the sand and watch the sea roll in. What ever your choice is we're sure you'll enjoy your stay.
Golfers delight.: Three great golf courses from 10 min. to 30 minutes away. Trump International. Westin Rio Mar. El Conquistador Golf Club.
Kids Paradise.: Pools, more pools, beach, mini-golf, play grounds. You name it and if it isn't there it's close by.
Spacious 2nd level: Great outdoor terrace with full bar, table and chairs. Great space for getting together for a cook out after a nice swim.
We had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico on mid-January 2015, we just can't wait to go back. This property is truly amazing with its rooftop terrace and we really liked the amenities of the Aquatika resort. It is conveniently located, not far from Luquillo beach and El Yunque Forest... decent driving distance from all services. Ray and Lisa are very accomodating, they respond promptly to all inquires and are always ready to assist. I could write a much longer review, but I think all the 5-star reviews written by others are pretty accurate. Just go for it, rent with total confidence... This trip was among our best in the caribbean. You just can't go wrong with Ray and Lisa. Enjoy!
My family had an amazing week in Puerto Rico to ring in the New Year 2015. Ray and Lisa were wonderful to work with. They provided lots of help prior to arrival including referrals to tour companies. They also knew we were celebrating a milestone birthday and they had a cheese cake in the refrigerator for our celebration on arrival. They also made sure we had a Pack and Play, a high chair and lots of toys (both indoor and outdoor varieties). The condo looked exactly as portrayed in the pictures. The air conditioner was not working well in one of the bedrooms and Ray came with the service techs and installed a completely new unit. We loved both the main living space (third floor walk up) but also enjoyed the terrace and outdoor kitchen on the fourth floor. We grilled several times and brought in groceries a couple of times from the Ralph's about 10 minutes away. The grounds at Aquatika are wonderfully groomed. We played in the main pool by the amenities center as well as the lazy river right outside the door of the condo. We have fun hunting for iguana's on the property. They were good at hiding in the bushes and were hard to spot. The location of Aquatika (and this condo) is great for trips to EL Junque, the local national park with a rain forest. Our group went there two days. It is also convenient to go to the beach (here and also Luquillo (with the Kioskos). We also did a moonlight cruise on a catamaran and the kayak tour of the bioluminescent bay out of Fajardo which is only about 25 minutes away. A pleasant vacation awaits at this condo.
This place was perfect for my family of 3 kids 16, 15 and 2 years old and my in laws. Place was clean and the area facilities are awesome the beach in aquatica is more calm the other beaches in the area. You do need a car to get around. The home owners were very helpful from the day I reserved the apartment. I will consider staying again here on my next vacation.
This is our second time staying at Aquatika penthouse vrbo #191230. We traveled with a total of 8 people in our party. We did not even have to turn on the air conditioning. The cross ventilation was amazing. The condo was equipped with everything you could possibly imagine. The rooftop wet bar & grill was amazing. I made breakfast every morning. The condo was equipped with a cooler.After breakfast in the A.M. we would fill the cooler with drinks(soda,beer,water,juice) and head out on our journeys and return to the appt. at 10:00 pm at night time. The condo owners were ALWAYS helpful.
Amazing place to stay & the owners are great!
We stayed here 2/21 through 2/27 and had an amazing trip. We had two families, four adults and four kids ages 8,6,2 and 19 months. It was a great time! Ray was always available via txt to answer any one of the two thousand questions I asked him during the trip.
We had a late arriving flight and he stocked the fridge for us and picked up the baby rental gear, which was a HUGE help! We really loved the location on the island, about a half hour out of San Juan, twenty minutes to the rainforest and about thirty to Loquillo, forty to the marinas for the snorkeling excursions.
I don't know if this is normal but we really did have the place to ourselves, apparently this is the low season?!? My kids loved the multiple pools, lazy river and water park. We actually liked the beach at the complex even more than Loquillo as we were pretty much the only people there, once there were a couple other families but it was for the most part quiet and peaceful.
We had a great time grilling on the private terrace and making good use of the blender :-)
Helpful tip - the surfaces around the pools hurt if you don't have calluses on the bottoms of your feet, bring some shoes to take off at the water's edge. Lesson learned for us on the first day and then it was a non-issue.
We always talk about the next trip and next fun place we want to see on the next vacation... and I have to say that this time (for the first time) we talked about when we would come BACK.
I cannot thank Ray and Lisa enough for allowing us to have the use of their home! What a vacation we had; it was like stepping into Paradise and having a true home away from home.
Ray met us in Old San Juan and helped us to find the complex and to direct us to groceries (much needed for us - a family of 6). We had cell numbers to call if we needed assistance of any kind.
There were 6 areas to sit in throughout the condo and terrace, not including the dining room table. The rooms were big and bright, with extra linens and beach towels. They had everything I needed for cooking, including an espresso maker!
The grounds were beautiful, as I mentioned above, I felt I was in Paradise every moment I was outside. We used all the pools, walked along the beach and our favourite was the winding river. From the living room you have the best view of the entire complex - palm trees, flowers, the river - AMAZING!
We had plans to do excursions, (our son and daughter-in-law did) however, once I arrived I did not want to go anywhere else.
The terrace was used constantly, our best times were coffee in the morning and watching the stars in the evening. Truly wonderful!!
Thank you so much, your home is beautiful, thank you!!
.Aquatika is a private enclosed walk up condo complex located in the town of Loiza on the north eastern side of Puerto Rico. It is ideally suited for going to nearby beautiful beaches, some of the best golf courses, snorkeling, boating and El Yunque Rainforest. It is a 5 minute to 30 minute drive away from all of these types of activities.
Aquatika itself is ideally suited for families with children because of it’s many swimming pools and small beach at the end of the complex. There is also tennis, mini golf, playground and gazebos to relax and enjoy all surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Great jumping point to go to nearby islands such as Culebra and Vieques for the day or go snorkeling in Fajardo
