Lovely place and people
Submitted: March 1, 2013
Stayed: February 2013
We got there late and bedraggled, and had to call for directions a few times (they don't go in for street signs and regular addresses in that area!), but Rosa and Angel were there patiently waiting for us. We instantly liked them, and felt they were genuine & trustworthy.
The condo has every comfort. The beds are comfy, everything seems clean, and all the linens are nice quality. The kitchen is well-appointed, with good quality pots, pans, utensils, dishes and glassware.
There were plastic pillow covers on the pillows, which I didn't like so I removed one. But the others didn't mind them at all.
We had been a little concerned about security in Puerto Rico (our son, who lives there, had a few things stolen and his car broken into). Pena Mar felt very safe, with electronic gates and a 24 hr. security guard. We left the front door open when home in the daytime (for air flow) and never worried.
The bedrooms have air-conditioners, which we used at night to sleep more comfortably and for white noise.
You need a car there. Fajardo is more a region than a centralized town - very spread out. There was no place near Pena Mar to get groceries or go for a morning coffee. But there are good restaurants within a mile a two.
Recommend El Yunque rainforest. Hike the trail to the waterfall. Plan to get in the water - fun!
Also recommend scuba diving with Sea Ventures in Marina Del Rey (also called Puerto Del Rey, I think).
Rosa and Angel made all the difference to how much we enjoyed our week there. We left the place clean and in good shape, and our deposit refund came a week later. Nice folks!
Owner's Response: Dear Melissa:
Having you at our condo, was a pleasure as well as meeting you and serving your purpose. We are glad you had a peaceful, secure stay and a nice time during your visit at Fajardo. Please feel free to contact us any other time you would like to visit Puerto Rico. On behalf of Angel and I, we truly appreciate all the above details about our condo unit but most of all, knowing you felt comfortable with our guidance makes the difference in our lives.
