Find your personal paradise at Aquatika. This beautiful condominium complex is the perfect place to escape to for those looking for something other than the hustle and bustle of the main tourist zones. Aquatika offers guests a tranquil setting right on the Atlantic coast. Walk out the complex gate to the beach and crashing waves and take it all in. The Aquatika complex fronts the Atlantic Ocean and allows for direct beach access. Loiza's beaches are beautiful, with comfortable sand and clear, warm waters. Grab one of the beach chairs and your towel and head here for a day of fun and sun.

Inside the gates, Aquatika offers guests a wide range of vacation pursuits. The development features multiple pool areas, including warm and cool jacuzzis, basketball courts, mini-golf, tennis courts, volleyball court, soccer court, sunning and lounging areas, children's playgrounds, shaded seating areas and ample green space. If your stay includes a weekend, spend a day (or two!) at Aquatika's main pool area, which comes alive on Saturdays and Sundays. A full-sized water slide provides countless hours of fun for kids of all ages. Grab one of our inflatable floats and head further down the complex where a winding river pool awaits. Beach-side gazebos and BBQ grills provide the perfect setting for an afternoon cookout, or make use of our electric grill on our private terrace for a more private experience. The grounds display lush tropical plantings, palm trees and flowers.

The main club house area provides guests with a pool and covered terrace with outdoor seating and a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean.

About Jeff Rekett

I'm a Chicago native working in the health care field. My family and I enjoy traveling to warm climates, especially when the long cold winter has taken its toll on us. Puerto Rico captured our attention a few years back and we decided to purchase a vacation home on the island. We have thoroughly loved making our home warm and comfortable for our own enjoyment and that of our guests. For us, Aquatika is a place to relax and rejuvenate and to get to know another culture.

Jeff Rekett purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jeff Rekett chose Las Carreras

Aquatika provides the feeling of a fine hotel property but with the comfort of condominium living. Warm crystal clear pools, ocean and beach access, basketball, tennis, volleyball, soccer and mini golf all on site provide hours and hours of fun for everyone. Located just 30 minutes east of the airport and accessible by highway or scenic route, Aquatika is in a prime location to venture out and explore many of the island's attractions.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy morning strolls around the complex enjoying all of the beautiful flowers and plants, encountering the occasional iguana along our way. The beautiful Atlantic ocean is a short walk down the walking path from our unit and whether we want to take a swim or simply take in the view, it's great having it so close. A hop in the car and a short drive away we find everything we need, from grocery stores to restaurants, to fine shopping. The main tourist areas and attractions are not far either. Our unit is one of the penthouses, the largest unit available at Aquatika. Besides offering two floors of expanded indoor space, our unit features a very large outside terrace. The terrace is partially covered, allowing this space to be enjoyed throughout the day, even under the hot afternoon sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jeff! We had a wonderful time staying in your condo. JC was waiting for us at the car rental and we followed him to a grocery store to get some supplies. We went to Costco and Walmart the next day as the selection was better and alot cheaper. The condo was just as it appeared in your listing. We all felt at home instantly. JC showed us around and we had him draw a name for which couple got the on-suite. Thanks JC for picking our name! We had no problem sharing the bathrooms between six people and having the extra half bath came in handy. The furnishings were very comfortable and we ate our meals up on the covered lanai. We ate all our breakfasts in and alot of our evening meals too. Deb is a wonderful cook and she wished you would have had a BBQ on the Lanai. The guys did walk down to BBQ at the charcoal ones a couple of times. We crammed alot of sightseeing into the 2 weeks we were there. Putting on about 1000 miles on the rental car. The condo is in a perfect location to see alot of the sights. Near the rainforest, Luquillo beach (which became our favorite), the food kiosks in Luquillo and Pinones, Fajardo (both Seven Seas Beach and the Bio Bay) and San Juan. Having the printed out directions to Old San Juan parking that you included in your welcome packet was a lifesaver. A co worker of ours has a sister who lives here and she and her husband took us on a scenic drive along the southern coast and then up into Guavate mountains to Cayey to eat alot of Puerto Rican food. What a day to remember! We also went to the Arecibo Observatory and a coffee plantation one day and zip lining another. So much to see on this beautiful island! The grounds around the condo are beautiful and very well maintained. The few times we used the pools we had them mostly to ourselves. A short walk to the beach which we did spend an afternoon there. The area outside the condo grounds was a little run down but didn't keep us from walking into town to a restaurant. The roosters and barking dogs at night took some getting used too, but wouldn't stop us from coming back to stay here. We all thought 2 weeks was going to be enough time to see everything but found another week would have been perfect. We would definitely recommend your condo to others and we hope to come back and stay again. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with all of us! P.S. Thanks again for being able to switch one of our weeks when we found that work conflicted with it.

Hi Jeff,

I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you what a nice time we had on our vacation trip to Puerto Rico. We have stayed in a few different condos before, but yours was one of the best. Aquatika was very fun for all of us, especially our three kids. Thanks for being so easy to work with. Everything you told us about your place turned out to be true. Your property manager was a nice guy and very helpful. We'd like to return again some time.

Much Better Than Expected

  • 4 of 5

The best part of this good facility is its proximity to Loiza. The town of Loiza is an old town which includes peoples from ancient time, Spaniards, slaves of African descent, as well as Americans etc. We happened to be there during the festival of St. James the Apostle, a week long celebration with food vendors, parades and people dressed in costumes. The location of the facility was perfect for us to watch and join in.

Aquatika is in a good location to travel around Puerto Rico. We went to the beach, went snorkeling, spent a day in Old San Juan, went to the rain forest, and went to see the bio-luminescence. Our penthouse apartment was on the third floor, but the walk up took us to a well arranged first floor and a circular staircase to a second floor with a deck. This floor has a third bathroom and a TV viewing lounge. Unfortunately this deck does not have a sea view but it is extremely comfortable. We were able to have gatherings with twenty additional friends. Our family gathering chose wisely to rent four condos here and everyone enjoyed the helpfulness of the people of Puerto Rico. Having Juan Carlo, the concierge, makes for a great vacation.

Very fun location for our trip. We were pretty central to what we wanted to do. Nice layout. Would have liked different shower heads. Property manager was awesome. Definitely need a rental car.

Great Family Oriented Resort/Condo

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was great from beginning to end. Jeff was very responsive and answered all of my questions right away. He really made the booking process easy for a first timer like myself. JC was a great help as well once we arrived. We stayed 9 days and had an amazing time. The condo has plenty of space for everyone and all of the amenities you could need. The property is very well cared for as well. Great landscaping and beautiful private beach. The only day the beach was crowded was 4th of July but, that's to be expected on a holiday. The locals were great and there were tons of great places to eat nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

Plenty of space, quiet resort and Jeff really provides all you need at the condo.

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 5 to PR for the first time this year. This was our first experience using peer to peer rental services. It was a great experience. Jeff and JC do a great job. We were really pleased and if we ever return would revisit.
