I would highly recommend this condo! My friend and I traveled from Boston...here are the highlights:
Condo: A studio apartment - small but full kitchen located in entry way. Kitchen was fully functioning but NOT fully stocked (no paper towels, salt, pepper, etc. if you want to cook - this was the biggest negative we experienced). The bathroom is recently refinished, very clean. There is a washer/dryer which was a huge bonus. King size bed and futon in the bedroom/living room area. Flatscreen TV with cable and nice furniture. The small balcony has a table and chairs with beach view. Condo comes with linens. Lots of shower towels and some extra beach towels.
Building: The condo complex (Coral Beach) is VERY secure, with 24-hour security all the way around (including the beach access). You need a key pass to get into any door in the building. We were very happy with how safe the place felt, even as two young females traveling together.
It's home to mainly retired Americans and families. It was a quiet and clean building, definitely not a party atmosphere if that's what you're looking for. We got reprimanded for bringing suitcases through the lobby, and if you are in a bathing suit, you need to take the service elevators.
Amenities: The complex has a large outdoor area on the beach. In the fenced-in area there is a large adult pool & a small kids pool. There is a half basketball court & 2 tennis courts. Down on the beach level, but still within the gate perimeters is a playground and picnic area with grass. Then, beyond the gate you are right on the beach. You can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas for a small amount each day. You NEED your key to get back into the condo area - the security guard monitors the gate and won't let anybody in without it.
Area: The location was great. The cab cost $14 from the airport. You are next door to the intercontinental, one block away from the El San Juan and a few minutes walk or cab right from the Ritz. Starbucks in the ESJ for AM coffee. Across the street there is a subway, a small grocery store going in and a couple chain restaurants. Also the hotel restaurants for pricier dining. There are two walgreens very nearby. The Pueblo is a short walk away (about 7 minutes). Most importantly, you are right on the beach!
It isn't the most glamorous condo, but for $90/night, it was perfect. The security deposit was returned promptly which was much appreciated. Ary, the property manager, was nice and accommodating.
Great location, very secure, entirely gated pretty,clean bldg with great amenities -two exterior very clean pools ( 1 for children, other for adults)and an expansive pool area with a whirlpool, tennis court, basketball court. Pool area is facing the beach so you can also just sit around catch the ocean breezes, read or take the sun in- there's also a lawned, lovely picnic area & beach shower stalls, This is a beach front property with its own gated access to the beach-a nice, clean, safe beach. Apt was well laid out with a nice balcony w/a side view of the beach.Nice decor and furnishings, just as in the pictures. Exception was the bathtub area which needs a renovation but owner was made aware of this. I loved it and would stay here again. There's a bus stop in front of the bldg but if you have a car, along with the apt you get a parking spot. This is a fast food, hotels and casinos, restaurant strip with other condo high rise bldgs all along it, its very safe and there are police circulating the area often either in cars, horseback or cycles. Yet the bldg is set back and its very quite and restful-best of both worlds!
Well, first lets I'll say the place is highly secure. The gated property has guards on staff 24hr a today. The building is nice looking and the lobby is ok but when you take the elevator to the floor, it resembles a hospital with no decor. Tile floor, blank walls, etc.. Every condo has 2 doors (an iron gate and the regular door). The room is ok, nothing fancy, plain and you have a partial view of the ocean. Air, hot water, electricity all worked. The real value of this is place is location, Its next to the Intercontinental and El San Juan hotel and its directly located on the beach.. Its also next to to a small shopping mall. If your looking to save some cash, definitely stay here, but I wouldn't recommend it for a anniversary.
