Resort style condo with great ocean views. Our pent-house apartment is a striking interplay between nature and luxury design. The apartment is located in Ceiba-Fajardo area, on the east coast of Puerto Rico just 35 miles from the San Juan International Airport. The apartment consists of three rooms. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, 5 windows, a queen size bed, and a personal balcony with ocean view. The other two rooms have one bunk bed each. The apartment also has 2 full bathrooms(the one in the master bedroom has a 2 sink vanity). From all 3 bedrooms, kitchen, living-dining areas and balcony you have direct views of Puerto Del Rey Marina and the islands of Ramos, Palomino, Palominito and Vieques. All 3 bedrooms are air conditioned as well as the living, dining and kitchen areas, although the cross ventilation is magnificent! We have 2 parking spots in front of the apartment and there are several parking spaces for visitors. The other 2 bedrooms have mirror doors full closets and 3 windows each. We also have a full size and fully equipped kitchen (glass ceramic stove with electric oven, microwave oven mounted over the stove, side by side refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water, double sink, light over double sink, garbage disposal, blender, toaster, electric hand mixer, cooking utensils, kitchen counter with 4 wood stools). Glass top dining table for 4 and we have 2 extra chairs, just in case! Living area contains one sofa and a sofabed, two stool, tv monitor with cable, dvd-music cabinet with iPod/iPhone connectivity. The laundry room in the unit has washer and dryer, ironing board, iron and a sink with cold and hot water.
The complex has 3 gorgeous swimming pools, tennis court, basketball court, jogging trail, fitness center and 24/7 gated security guard entrance. Our apartment’s location is the location, close and far enough from everything, with direct ocean-islands views. Only 45 minutes drive to San Juan, 15 minutes drive to Luquillo Beach, 25 minutes drive to El Yunque Rainforest, the only tropical rainforest protected by the U.S. National Forest Service, less than 10 minutes to El Conquistador Hotel and Casino, the Bioluminescent Bay and Seven Seas Beach. You can also take a ferry to Vieques or Culebra from Fajardo Marina, less than 10 minutes from the apartment. We are located right in front of Puerto del Rey Marina, where a wide range of sailboats and catamaran charters are available to take you on daily trips to the cays for snorkeling, or diving, or to visit the nearby islands. Groceries, drugstore, restaurants and other facilities are 2 minutes away.
The islands of Culebra, Vieques and cays are the most exotic places in the Caribbean.
For the Golfer, several great golf courses are within a 30 minute drive:
-El Conquistador Resort and Golden Spa. (Hilton Family)
-RioMar Resort (Wyndham Family)
-Trump Golf Club
-Palmas del Mar
This was a very large and comfortable apartment in a complex just north of Ceiba. There were beautiful views of the sea from two balconies, as well as an upper roof deck. There were two swimming pools we could use, as well as a playground for children. The area is quiet, just south of the busier Fajardo area. The apartment was within driving distance to both Humacao nature reserve, and El Yunque rainforest. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.
I was so impressed. It was close to restaurants and stores. I loved the decor and the owner was very helpful and thoughtful. She bought ferry tickets for us and thought of details like coolers, chairs, and beach towels. I loved everything because it was the next best thing to our home. Literally the only thing we needed were our clothes!
Our family of 4 spent school vacation in Puerto Rico and had a wonderful time. You'll definitely need a car to enjoy this location, but it's fairly close to the sights in Loquillo (kiosks/beach), El Yunque (hiking), and Fajardo (bioluminescent lagoon and Vieques ferr) and within a reasonable distance to Old San Juan Sights west of San Juan (Camuy Caves, Arecibo Observatory) are a bit of a haul to get to. We didn't make it to the West side of the island or South Side. Becasue it's not really a touristy area (like Old San Juan), had difficulty finding a restaurant for my wife (vegetarian) and younger son (picky eater), but that's one of the reasons we stay in a condo, and there's 2 grocery stores fairly close (Amigo is right in the plaza off the highway), and Ralph's is within 20 minutes). My 2 boys decided to share a bedroom, so we ended up with an open one. All of the AC units work, the views are lovely, and there's a nice open deck on top where it was good to grill. We also took advantage of the basketball court, tennis court, and pools in the complex. The tennis courts were a bit dated (top layer of covering had come off on 2 of them), and the complex gym was unimpressive (no power to any of the machines), but the pool right by the unit was very nice!
Corrections to the location description: We had only 2 stools at the kitchen bar, not 4, there is not a light over the double sink, and I don't recall there being a garbage disposal. there were plenty of utensils, but if you're going with more than a family, there wouldn't be enough glasses (or seating).
Marianne (the property owner) was pleasant to deal with and extremely helpful. I was surprised to find a basketball for our use in the hall closet of the property. there were also beach chairs and blankets for our use, as well as a case of water. Nice touch!
This was a great vacation apartment for our family of six. We spent nine nights there and had plenty of room. The photos don't do justice to the views. The top floor pent house was a wonderful place to relax, watch the rain clouds come in from the ocean and and enjoy the cool breeze. The owner was very responsive and kindly purchased ferry tickets to Vieques Island before we arrived. Had she not purchased the tickets, we probably would not have been able to go on the day we planned. I would recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to Puerto Rico as long as they have a car.
