Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and this is our first time in Puerto Rico. I am at a loss for words on where to begin as my entire family feels this was the best vacation ever. We have three children ages 12, 10, and 7 and Gladys met us at the condo and felt like family with her warm welcome. She was a wealth of information on things to do prior to the trip and when we checked in. Luquillo, like most towns in puerto Rico have been hit economically and farther from the beach some of the houses look a little run down. The condo complex is right on La Pared beach with an amazing view. Every morning I sat drinking my coffee just enjoying the views. Surfers in front and to the right, and calmer water off to the left with families enjoying the beautiful beaches.

We planned out many activities based on information provided by Gladys and some internet searches. Our plan was a relaxed local day followed by a day trip alternating for our week long stay. Locally we explored the beached and food kiosks and the condo is flanked on both sides by two restaurants. During the day there are also food trucks and all were very good. The Kiosks are a few minutes drive and we found a wide range of choices from more expensive lobster restaurants to very low key and was not disappointed by any. Gladys also gave us many recommendations for near the airport and then for Old San Juan, all of which were great.

For activities we did a day trip to Culebra island and another to the rain forest. We also explored the fort and Old San Juan and on the local days went to Luquillo beach one day then the rest of the beach days were across the street. We met so many nice local families with kids our ages and everyone was very friendly and genuinely interested in us and thankful for visiting this part of Puerto Rico.

Overall it is an unspoiled part of the island with warm and open people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. After dinner my middle child and I would walk around the neighborhood and felt perfectly safe everywhere we walked. I speak very little spanish, but was able to get by with a few words and met a few very nice people.

For tours I would hands down recommend Kayak Puerto Rico and we used them for the Culebra tour and a mini-boat adventure. We also went surfing right across the street with Brian Ramos at Surfing Puerto Rico who turned out to be amazing. My kids loved every minute of the lessons and he was energetic and engaging.

Excellent ocean view with cool breeze. Clean and well stocked. Laid back area. Great dining

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Solimar! Gladys was very kind, informative and had a great response time with our communications. The view is gorgeous and the cool breeze from the trade winds was amazing. There was no need for AC in the main area. The AC in the bedrooms and the comfortable beds made for restful nights. The condo was well equipped and we had plenty of room for 4 adults and a teenager. Many of the previous reviews are very accurate. The area has many abandoned homes and has taken a hard hit with the struggling ecomony. That being said, we always felt safe. The condo has locked gates and is well secured, though we walked around the area without any concerns. We met some of the locals who were all very friendly. Luquillo is very laid back and we had the opportunity to really experience the culture. The pool isn't very big and needs some repairs as well as some chairs. The beach outside the condo does have some strong riptides and definitely is a surfers beach but just a little further down the waves were calmer. We also loved spending time at Balinerio Beach. Even on the weekends when this beach was crowded, there was always enough room without feeling crowded. The food was delicious and many of the restaurants were right by the condo. We especially enjoyed El Rincon del Sabor, Pasta y Pueblo and the fish tacos at Boardriders. You would never expect the quality of food by looking at the outside of some of the restaurants. Their reviews speak for themselves!

We did rent a car and I highly recommend doing so. We took the Catamaran trip on the SS Tobias to Flamenco Beach and snorkeling. It was amazing. The crew on the boat was awesome! A trip to the rainforest is a must as well as Old San Juan. I would recommend booking the tour bus. They have free trolleys but the day we went there were only two running and they were always packed. With the tours you can see so much more of what the town has to offer. Did the kayak tour of the bioluminescent bay. Big disappointment. The bay isn't lighting up as it should , way too many kayakers plus boats in the water at the same time in the dark and many people didn't seem to know how to kayak, creating a very frustrating and potentially dangerous trip.

Overall, this was one of the best vacations we have taken. The beaches of Puerto Rico are beautiful! We met many friendly people. So much to see and do!! We loved our little piece of paradise in Luquillo! We hope to visit again!!

Wonderful Beach View for our Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Puerto Rico. Gladys met us at the condo and made us feel very welcomed and was full of information of things to do and places to eat. The condo was very clean and well maintained. It was very obvious that Gladys takes pride in her rental. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms had very nice bath towels. There were also beach towels provided and many other things for the beach. The bedrooms were air conditioned and even though the living room area was not, the sea breeze was wonderful with the open patio doors. It is located next to a nice little restaurant that had great food and a WalMart down the road for any groceries we needed. Gladys also recommended the kiosks, which were located close to the condo and had great food, if you don't want to cook. The condo was located close to the El Yunque National Forest, Bioluminescent Bay, and the ferries or boat tours out to Culebra. We enjoyed our time in Luquillo and I would definitely stay here with my family again.

Beautiful views, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Everything is thought of, from a place to drop your keys and bags, to non-breakable dinnerware for eating out on the balcony (which we did a LOT!). We loved the town and had no issue walking around, down the beach, around the square, etc. We felt completely safe all the time with our two young kids. The apartment so so clean and obviously Gladys has a lot of pride in her place. We got a bit lost finding it, but after the first time, it was no issue.

This is a great location with more of a small town feel. We spend a day in Old San Juan, at El Yunque, and at the lovely swimming beach a few minutes away. The area out front is rough, but we enjoyed watching the surfers and building sand piles for the waves to destroy with the kids. We were able to grab any groceries we wanted (including a birthday cake) from the Amigo right in town. We loved eating at Lena's for breakfast (wish we had eaten there early in the trip so we could go again) and Aroma's had great coffee.

A fantastic stay, and we hope to come back again.
