MANY CONS, A FEW PROS

  • 2 of 5
Our first impressions of the villa was not favorable. The furniture and décor was old and outdated. There was a huge trail of ants that ran from the window to the toilet. One of the bar stools was so wobbly, I felt it was hazardous to use. On the second night, we were greeted by a huge roach that kept dodging our attempts to kill it.

Despite all this, we did recognize that this property did have a few pros. One of our favorite features was the back patio with the peaceful view of the lake and the golf course. We ate breakfast on the patio every morning and it was a wonderful way to begin the day. The location of the villa was convenient to the pools, the beach, and the El Yunque Rainforest. Also, the washer and dryer was quite useful.

In summary, this property is more affordable than many others we considered. I would recommend this property to those who are looking for strict practicality. I would not recommend this property to anyone who is remotely interested in luxury or aesthetics.

PEACEFUL RESORT LIVING

  • 4 of 5
The property was a great value. The caretaker was very nice and patient with us since we arrived quite late. The view is not the beach but it is quite nice, the pools are fantastic, the beach club is close enough and quite nice, two layers of security, wi-fi, etc. The main downside is that you need a car to get around, the property is up in a hill and not walking distance from the resort or nearby shops and restaurants. Also, the air conditioners can be loud and take some getting used to. I recommend to dine up the hill at Richie's. Great location to visit El Yunque, water activities in Fajarado and a new tollway No. 66 provides easy access to San Juan. Overall, I give it two thumbs up.

EXCELLENT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We found that the Villa was clean and really comfortable. It was so awesome to have a washer and dryer so that we didn't have to bring back wet and dirty clothes. Having screens on the balcony doors was an added plus. Falling asleep to the sounds of Puerto Rico was wonderful!

GOOD VALUE AT A NICE BEACH RESORT

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a 4 night stay at this condo. Great value for the money at a beautiful beach resort. The resort property, beach and pools were lovely and uncrowded. Perfect covered porch for enjoying your morning coffee or supper at night. Ruben will meet you at the resort entrance and show you around the condo. It is an older condo, but all the appliances were new. Came with a washer/dryer, great wifi and 2 air conditioners-which I used at night. The bedroom is snug, but the bed was comfortable. Lots of beach towels. There are 2 pools- the one at the condo was spotless and I was the only one there. You can walk(10 minutes) or drive to the free lot at the beach. There is another great pool at the beachclub with chaise lounges for the beach, a bathroom and on the weekends they have a beach bar. The beach is miles long and perfect for morning walks. The ocean has some surf and I usually walked down to the hotel to swim in the ocean, so I would not be alone in the waves. It's the perfect spot for going to El Junque (15 minutes away) or catching the ferry from Fajardo.
I bought dinner to go at Don Pepe (great food), the kioskos and Richies on the hill. Had a lovely glass of wine and dinner on my private patio every night.
The weekend at the condo was lively-lots of PR families have vacation condos there. During the week, it's very peaceful. I appreciated the security and the gated entrance. Great stay-would return there if I am ever in Puerto Rico.

A RELAXING WEEK.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this villa for a week with our family of four. It was cozy for our family with the bedroom and pull out couch in the living room. We spent most of our time at the beach or pool which were both beautiful. The pool closest to the villa is actually prettier than the beach club pool. We enjoyed watching the iguanas on the lawn while sitting on the balcony overlooking the golf course. The beach club and beach were a also nice though over Easter weekend the beach club was very busy in comparison to early in the week. The washer and dryer worked great and were wonderful for our family. We cooked in the kitchen all week and found all we needed to prepare almost all meals. Ruben was very helpful and quick to respond to all of our questions when emailed. He was very helpful on arrival since navigating the resort was tricky at night. We enjoyed the big waves at the beach but also took trips to Luquillo and Seven Seas. Loved Luquillo but the kids loved body boarding and wave jump on
the resort beach. So many cool things to do close by hiked the rainforest, snorkelled with East Island Excursions, and kayaked the biobay. It was a great villa to use as home base for busy days. Internet did not work which helped us for disconnecting to the world but we were planning on using it for day trip planning so luckily we brought our guide book and used our smartphones to google map most things.
The security of the resort was nice and the grounds were beautiful for jogging and walking. It was a great and affordable place to stay. Glad we had a car to explore and get groceries. ( Amigo is just up Hwy 3) Never went to the main resort. Kids loved collecting fallen coconuts and breaking them open. We loved opening all the doors and enjoying the open air blowing through the villa. Only downfall was there were some ants in the villa but with all the openness of the villa that is understandable. It was a great place to stay or a very reasonable price.
