Guestbook comments from the owner

Jorge, I wanted to let you know that we had a great vacation and were very pleased with your condo at Sandy Hills. It suited us very well in all respects - location, comfort, view, security. There was a festival going on at the Luquillo Plaza several evenings, and the area restaurants were very good. We especially enjoyed La Parrilla and the Miramar. We spent a couple of days at the public beach, which was excellent. We spent a day in old San Juan. The highlight of our trip was an overnight to Vieques and its bioluminescent bay. We rode the ferry, stayed in a simple guesthouse, and enjoyed the Malecon.

I'm glad that we found your condo on the web. Hope to return soon.


Dear Jorge and Gina,

I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for letting us rent your lovely condo in Luquillo. It was absolutely perfect for us and we had a delightful time in Puerto Rico. In fact it is a slap in the face to be back in cold, rainy, wet weather. Jorge, your instruction book was wonderful and we used it every day. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Yours, Mary (and Jack)

Christmas/New Years Vacation 2008

  • 5 of 5

Jorge - Thanks so much for opening up your beautiful condo to us. We had a fabulous time. Wish we didn't have to come home. Left yesterday and it was 84. Today we wake up to 14 degrees. Everything we needed was right at our finger tips. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. Loved the views (from the 19th floor) while having our coffee in the morning. We spent time on your beach, Luquillo Beach, ate at the kioskos, did the bio bay, fishing w/Marcus, El Yunque, shopping, Guavate, Old San Juan and Rio Mar casino. We never made it to the west coast, so I guess

we'll just have to revisit (oh darn!!!!). I disagree with the A/C previous reviews. Although it was Dec., it was in the 80's everyday. However sleeping with the windows cracked and the sliding glass doors open was plenty to keep you comfortable. Washer and Dryer was a real plus (I don't like returning from vacation and having a ton of laundry to do). I can't say enough about the quality of service and facility. We will definately recommend to friends and will probably return someday.

Thanks again,

Karyn in NY

Very secure and peaceful. Great ocean view and balcony. Comfortable beds. The first night and day was a mess. Ac in one of the rooms didn't work. It was extremly hot and uncomfortable. I called playa azul and they fixed it the next afternoon. The water turned off at 9:30am. I had barley waken up. I had not water to brush my teeth or shower. When i called they said it turns off to save water. I was upset... Water didn't turn on until 7pm. On the last day there, we saw signs saying the electricity will be shut off on 07/05/16 at 7am. But my check out wasn't till 11am. The rush to catch the elevator before everything was shut off and not having to take the stairs was very upsetting. Other than that everything was great! Easy access to the beach. The pool could use some maintainece but ita still very fun. I will be speaking with the owner to see if a credit could be given for the issues with electricity and water which in fact is a need.

Great Condo for Local Experience

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in the condo in Luquillo. The location is convenient to the rain forest as well as the Fajardo ferry. We loved having out "own" beach where the sea turtle nests were, as well as being able to drive 5 min to Luquillo beach and the kioskos. We ate well at the kioskos - and enjoyed the locals there. We took two trips to El Yunque rainforest , a couple of trips to Fajardo for parasailing and to catch the ferry to Culebra. We found the locals to be friendly and helpful. As for the condo & management: we had no trouble with check-in or check-out. The security guards were pleasant. We would have liked it if the beach (immediately behind the condo) had been cleaned up from the palm leaves and debris that washed in, but most of the beach off to the east stayed pristine. The condo itself has dated decor, but it was fairly clean, and was well furnished. The beds were comfy and the kitchen stocked well for our needs. We had no issues with electricity or hot water. Tap water is fine to drink. Lots of beach towels there, as well as a basket of sunscreen and aloe in the hallway cabinet. Get a bag of Cafe de Oro (Puerto Rican coffee) from the Amigo grocery store nearby - to make coffee in the morning. I will say this: if you want a fancy resort hotel, this is not it. If you want a taste of local Puerto Rico, this IS it. Once we walked out streetside, we were in the town, walking by residents and even got to enjoy a local festival at the plaza one night.
