Amazing view, location to beat, but...
While we had a good stay overall, there are some things I have mixed feelings about. I do want to point out that Debora is an absolute pleasure to interact with. She's very personable and very interested in providing you with a great stay. No beating the location - it really is close to everything, starbucks, Marriott, shops/restaurants, 24-hr Walgreens, car rental, 20 min SJU airport (cab ride $15-20 depending on how much luggage you're carrying), beach front & the view is really spectacular. I was sold on that alone. The apt has all you'll need & more. It is well equipped, the beach chairs, beach towels & little cooler is a nice detail. BUT the furniture is not as pristine as the pictures show, there is wear and tear. The building where the apartment is in it's in bad shape. It's a small building with about 3-4 apts on each floor, the facade is deteriorating, it really could use an upgrade or at least good maintenance. I should also point out this is a motel style property - the apt units are not in a closed walled building, they are in the open. One of the adjacent buildings appears abandoned. In the apt there are TWO (??) AC units, one facing the beach and one above the entrance door and BOTH ARE VERY LOUD! That was very annoying. We only kept one of the ac units on but the temperature control was impossible on both -- too too cold or not cold enough. Firguring it out how to operate it is another story. This really should be fixed and a sheet on how to operate it provided. This can be problematic if you're staying more than 3 days. We dealt with it. Another thing is having to have a set of 6 bulky keys mailed prior to your stay, who wants to carry all those keys (forbid you lose them) - gate key to enter property, building door key to enter building, elevator key and three apt keys. One thing to be cautious of, the neighbor to the right of the apt is a permanent resident and does not appear well of mind. Having said that, you will feel very safe here. Immediately when you exit the property there are police officers patroling the beach entrance. The condado area has gotten more security because of recent crime issues, so that's a very good thing. There is a book with maps and menus from various restaurants but those need to be updated, some of the menus are of restaurants that no longer exsist and the maps go back to 2008. I really wanted to rate the apt better, but the AC was not easy to cope with.
