About Mark Wall or Diane Wall
Diane and I are retired now and spend our winters here in Luquillo. We enjoy it so much that we feel sharing it with others is obligatory rather than keeping it all to ourselves. We are both from the New York area, having spent our lives there including our schooling and careers. We currently live in Radburn, the first planned community in the US and a historic landmark. Our kids are grown and we have a grandchild
Mark Wall or Diane Wall purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Mark Wall or Diane Wall chose Solimar
Our condo provides an ideal vacation spot. We are right on the most beautiful beach in Puert Rico. The condo is extremely comfortable and fully furnished with everything needed for a great time. We came to this area as guests of my cousin, a well known economics professor, and fell in love with it. After several years of renting we purchased his unit when it became available and have been enjoying it ever since. In addition to the superb facilities the buildings are attended 24 X 7 as is the parking area for the complex.
What makes this Condo unique
Our view on the northwest corner of the 9th floor is superb. The location right on the beach means that that access is right there and the palms on the beach provide natural shade. On premises swimming and sports facilities rival those of the best resorts in the area at home rental prices.

Glorious Views, Beach, comfort and Convenience
Everything about this spot makes a stay in Luquillo at Playa Azul unforgettable. The beach a few steps from the building with shade under the palms provides endless hours of enjoyment whether sitting, riding the waves, or taking walks in either direction.
Lots of great eating nearby, much within walking distance. Shopping for everything needed within five minutes and golfing, tennis, horseback riding, snorkeling, and El Yunke right nearby. Ferry to Culebra and Viejes in the next town.
You will be sorry to leave and planning your next stay before you do.
Great Rental Experience
I am giving it a 5 because the apartment was exactly as described in the website. The view was amazing and the owner was very quick in answering all our question. Both showers have handle bars but the bathroom doors are too narrow for a wheelchair user to roll into the bathroom. Lucky for me my husband could carry me into the shower since I am prapligc. We would definitely rent this unit again!!!!!
Amazing wow wow!!
The apartment was an amazing place. My family had an awesome time! The location of the apartment is gorgeous as there is a full view of Luquillo beach and El Yunque from the balcony. Inside the apartment, I felt as if I was staying in a very prestigious hotel. The master bedroom and bathroom are very modern with a multi-head shower that made me not want to go back to my simple dingy shower head at home (since this visit, I am seriously considering remodeling my bathroom!). The other two bedrooms were clean and comfortable to sleep in all day if we could, but being beside Luquillo beach and breathing in the festive atmosphere, make it impossible to want to stay inside the apartment all day. Thanks to the easy to follow instructions left by the owner, I was able to navigate the apartment and also the local scene. This makes the location even more so important, since almost all you need is a short walk away. The pool was a great relaxation station after swimming in the waves or playing a quick basketball game on the adjacent court. The staff of Playa Azul are also very friendly and answered all of my questions. This honestly felt like a five star experience and I will be visiting Luquillo again thanks to the time I had here. Everything in the property was very well maintained and even had some beach supplies (umbrella, lounge chairs, etc) that we had forgotten to pick up. I have been recommending this property to all my friends and family, as I always recommend locations that make an unforgettable impression on me. Thank you!
Wow, oh, wow!!! Great time!!!
Wow, oh, wow!!! Those are the 3 best words to describe our stay at your apartment in Luquillo. The view from your balcony is exactly as you had posted and your apartment met every one of our expectations. Thank you for sharing it with us! Your pages of "tips" that you sent prior to our visit were helpful -- what a considerate gesture! We were able to take in everything that was at the top of our list including the bioluminescent bay outside of Fajardo, the Rain Forest, and Old San Juan. Your apartment was the perfect "home base". However, the next time we come we hope to do a lot more relaxing on your beach, which is by far one of the prettiest that we have ever seen. And Enoc (the property manager) was exceptional in helping to make our stay the best possible.
Yes, I said "the next time we come". Puerto Rico is now my favorite destination. The people are friendly, the currency is U.S., the prices are reasonable, the weather is beautiful, and your ocean is warm. :)
Again, we so VERY much enjoyed our visit and appreciated the use of your home.
No Words To Describe This AMAZING Experience!
We took a vacation to this beautiful island in June of 08 - there truly are no words to describe what a wonderful time we had. The owner was so very helpful (didn't write a review sooner - sorry!), he emailed us tons of information on the property and nearby restaurants, things to do, etc.... Everything was completely accurate. The minute I walked into the apartment it was absolutely breathtaking! We were a group of 6 adults and 4 children. The condo was absolutely comfortable ( can use a bit of updating as far as the linens are a little worn - everything else outweighs this). There were enough beds for all and the air matresses helped. Everything needed was at the apartment from towels to linens to cups and plates, forks etc. etc.... I immediately claimed the master bedroom just for the view. the window in the room, and waking up every morning to the amazing view of the ocean without having to get up from bed - that alone made the trip so worthwhile for me... The guards at the front desk were always very friendly and so were the ones at the front desk of the building. The only downside at times was that there were two buildings and the newer one wasn't working for much of our 2 wk trip. The older elevator would take forever to reach the 9th floor and it was always hot and muggy insided the elevator. I'm planning on heading down to pr again and to the owner - I will definately call again to rent your condo. I realize that no matter how many condo's i've seen online - none have the huge master bedroom window that this one had! I loved waking up every morning and lying in bed watching the waves - the sunrise was beautiful. The whole trip was excellent and I would definately recommend this condo to anyone.
Thank you for the oppt. to stay at your apt. We had a great time
and your instruction sheets were very useful. The view was fantastic,
the beach beautiful. no problems. Smooth sailing! Thank you so much.
The first evening we went to lolitta's and had a great meal.
friday we hung out at beach and then took eastislands tour to
bioluminous bay at vieques. Fantastic and highly recommended except
should check lunar calender always for optimal experience. Sat. we did
the rainforest and to Sandys seafood for dinner, not great... should
have consulted you. Sunday we went to culebra to the beach. Actually
took flight to and back as my son and i have motionn sickness and did
not do so well Friday on the powered catamaran. Great view flying!
Monday RAIN!!! So we went into Old San Juan and shopped some. ate at
Guava's that night, great place!! Tuesday our flight delayed by an
hour. We went into Isle Verde and rented scooters for 2 hours riding
along 195? whatever route is along ocean for miles , Pennones area. We
ate every breakfast in except our last morning and 1 dinner in after
our trip to culebra.
We were very pleased with everything. I understand why you miss
it. I truly appreciated awaking every morning to the sound and view of
thank you and God bless,
