Great

  • 5 of 5

It took me a while to write this but anyways I visited PR in 6/1/07 because my cousin was getting married and I needed a place to stay. I was kinda iffy at first because I had never vacationed using any kind of website like this. Evrything worked out great i was always in contact with the owner if I was to ever need anything, the beach was beautiful and accessible .Very clean and the washer and dryer in the room was a plus, everything went exceptionally well. The room was great. Its also in a prime location close to everything.The view is okay but other than that I had a wonderful time. Thanks Dominick. Stephanie from Boston sorry it took so long to write. I will definitely do this again..

Hurricane Maria Emergency Response

  • 4 of 5

I was sent to Puerto Rico 5 days after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico. At the time I was deployed I was expecting to have to sleep in FEMA tents. Lucky I saw that Dominick's condo was available. Right up front Dominick explained that ESJ only had partial emergency generator power, In fact he was hesitant to even rent his unit considering, he was not positive his unit had not received damage from the storm. After I explained my situation of, his unit or a tent, he agreed to let me use his unit. Dominick contacted me the day I moved in and wanted to make sure the unit met my expectations. The condo is beautiful. The only negative was no power for two weeks. I had to keep reminding Dominick even with out power, I was living in better conditions than most.

I feel somewhat guilty about only giving 4 stars to his condo, its was immaculate. But how can I give higher than 4 stars with no-power. ;)

I would not hesitate to stay at Dominicks condo in the future. And give it my highest recommendation. with that said, the experience of dealing with Dominick exceeded the accommodations, he did everything he could to make my experience at ESJ as nice as possible given what PR is dealing with.

Also, the entire staff at ESJ went beyond expectations super safe enviroment. And the bar staff of Rico, Jorge, Victor, Bobby and Pionia were great.

PS.. The power is back on at ESJ, and I just booked his unit for another two weeks.

Gracies mi amigo

Unexpected pleasant experience. Large clean room, sufficient cleaning supplies, washer and dryer, beautiful balcony view, professional and readily available communication with Mr. Santiago, all contributed to making our stay problem free and memorable. Can't wait to return !!!!

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! We had such a good time, Domick was so helpful with our late and early check in times. Everything in the room was really nice and convenient. Mr. Santiago was very generous on all items in the room, toileteries, towels, linens, the kitchen is nice. The rooms are nice and fit at least 4. comfortable. felt like home! Cant wait to come again!

Bad experience from booking to arriving

  • 1 of 5

To begin with, communication with the owner was very sketchy- he would take very long to answer emails, and sometimes not at all. The worst part was when we were supposed to connect before departure, and I sent him an email which he never replied to. When we arrived at the aparthotel, we found out he was supposed to give us a code to the unit, which he did not, and the hotel receptionist could not provide us with the code, and there was no info left for us at the front desk. It took a while to get a hold of the owner, and to get the code. When we entered the unit, it was smelly and stuffy, but again the worst part were the misleading title and pictures which led us to believe that the unit was oceanfront. The view from the balcony was of ugly buildings and parking areas, and a strip of ocean in the distance. The porch itself was unkempt with one broken chair and an old air conditioner unit. The air conditioner, by the way was not working either. Additional problems were stains everywhere- on chairs and in the bedroom ( looked like blood stains), chipped floors and rusty railings. We spent the first day dealing with this and trying to find a different place to stay. We managed to do that the next day, and the owner charged us for one night plus cleaning. No apology and no full reimbursement, even thought it was a bait and switch situation with the misleading pics and description. I definitely do not recommend!

Owner's Response: I have since replaced the air conditioner and have corrected all the items customer mentioned. I have never had a bad review since Oct 2008. I have provided a the customer a refund for the one night and the cleaning fee to correct this matter. I take this business very serious and strive to provide a great and clean apartment. Hope to serve you soon.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described. It was clean and airy. It was the perfect place for myself and two friends. The owner was a pleasure to work with.
