Overview

Solimar Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The best of the best! Luquillo has the best beaches in Puerto Rico and Playa Azul beach is one of them. And the Playa Azul Towers are right there. Tower 1 has the best view of the ocean, and this apartment sits high on the eleventh floor of Playa Azul 1, with a commanding view of nature's best. It is a one-bedroom unit ideal for a romantic get-away or a small family. The bedroom has a huge king-sized bed and its own window looking out to the ocean. Plus at the eleventh floor you can still hear the soothing sound of the waves. The bedroom has a very efficient A/C unit, but many renters do not use it preferring to sleep to the sound of the waves and the usual breeze of the easterly trade winds. There is a very comfortable futon in the living area that allows for up to two additional people, and which is also great for mid-afternoon siestas. The kitchen is well-equipped with stainless steel fridge, stove and microwave. This apartment is new on the rental market. Come once and you will surely return many times. I'm sure you would rather be in it right now!

The gated Playa Azul Complex is located one mile from world-class Luquillo public beach, one of the most famous and beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico. The complex sits on its own large crescent beach with gentle waves - perfect for body surfing, sunbathing, or strolling. Luquillo public beach is a short walk to the West and an excellent surfing beach ('La Pared') is a short walk to the East.

Inside the complex you will find tennis and basketball courts, two pools (including a toddlers pool), play equipment for kids, and a clubhouse. A grocery store, drug store, gas station, bank ATM, Laundromat, and several restaurants are within walking distance.

The condominium's location in Luquillo is ideal for exploring the Eastern part of Puerto Rico. The El Yunque National rainforest is just a few minutes West on Route 3 and Fajardo, with ferries to Culebra and Vieques - the Spanish Virgin Islands, and its own natural wonder bioluminescent bay is a few miles East. Shopping in old San Juan and at the outlets are just 20 to 40 minutes away. Several championship golf courses are located at several nearby golf resorts within 10 miles. Stay in Playa Azul for a fraction of the cost of a hotel and enjoy the best of Puerto Rico!

best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled with 2 of my friends and we had an absolute blast! We were close to everything. Snorkelling in Fajardo, El Yunque rainforest, 45 minutes to San Juan and a super short walk to the beautiful beach of Luquillo. Luquillo had the best beach out of the island, Crystal clear water and not crowded with tourists. The view from the balcony was amazing. The entire condo is gated so I felt very safe the entire time We are already planning to go back soon!

A few inconveniences, but okay overall

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The bedding could use an upgrade, and there were no instructions for the air conditioner. This is minor, but no one warned me that dish soap and paper towels were not included, so we had to make a special trip to the store. Also, there is a clothesline but no pins. However, the apartment is a good size for a couple or small family, the balcony is lovely, everyone in the building was really friendly and there were a lot of families staying there. The beach really is steps away and the view is great!

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

Property and location were wonderful. My family and I had an amazing experience for our first time in Puerto Rico. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and had provided some excellent information prior to our visit. Everything that we needed or wanted to do was close by. I would highly suggest this location and property, especially for a family getaway.

Awesome View

  • 3 of 5

Great view and accommodations had everything we need. The master bed was comfortable with nice air conditioning unit. This small one bedroom condo does need quite a bit of work (rust stains in bathroom, needing paint, new furniture) and was clean with the exception of some of the pots and pans under the counter. Is evident that no one lives there. With not that much effort I believe that it could be a nicer accommodation affording higher lease rate. I would only recommend this condo for a couple that is on a tight budget.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback and will give serious consideration to your recommendation for a rate increase as we continue to move forward with our renovations plan, even though we really like to keep this condo affordable to all. We are glad you enjoyed our new king mattress! Perhaps you took it for granted but the digital HD TV was also a recent upgrade. This week we put new night tables in the bedroom. The small rust stain in the bathtub/floor edge has proven to be a challenge, particularly as we have had high occupation and turnover, specially trying to accommodate those escaping the cold spell up north. But we will not give up. Indeed, we do not live in this apartment but I assure you of our commitment to keep it in good shape.

Met our expectations...

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the condo late on a Saturday evening. The keys were there for us as had been arranged. The condo was bright and actually looked better than it had in the photos. We were very comfortable here for the week. Everything was clean and comfortable. The only suggestion I'd make is that the bathroom needs updating and the kitchen needs more silverware. LOTS of clean towels:-) The beach chairs and cooler were used daily as well. The owner was easy to contact and answered questions prior to our visit promptly. Playa Azul was courteous and great to work with. The location is fabulous...close to beaches, restaurants, El Yunque, snorkeling, fishing, biobay tours, everything! We'd definitely come back:-)

Great rental right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here in July 2013. The complex has a pool and is right beside a nice beach. The unit has a very comfy King size bed with AC in the room, so we slept very well. Pedro was very responsive in all our communication with him. We asked him a question about the DVD player on the one rainy day during our stay and he sent the property manager up within minutes to help us out.

The only suggestion we can think of is to provide a second set of keys to renters to make coming and going easier. Other than that, no complaints at all!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your great review and feedback. I am happy to report that we have (finally!) upgraded to a new 32" HD LED TV unit and simplified the DVD wiring. It is now very easy to set-up and is working very well.
