Fabulous view!

  • 4 of 5

Aquatika is a very large complex, so location is everything. Arthur's unit is one of the few actually ON the beach with water views---we were so happy to wake up to those turquoise waters every morning!

Nice relaxing ocean view

  • 4 of 5

It was a total of nine of us which stayed at this property (7 adults 1 child and a baby) and we were all well accommodated . My favorite spot was the oceanfront balcony. Beautiful views during the day and a wonderful breeze at night. The pools were also great. We spent a lot of time at the pools at night. A lot of negative remarks about the neighborhood, but we never felt concerned about safety, especially with the police station right outside the resort. Poor does not equal lack of safety nor integrity. People were very friendly and we went to the nearby bakery several times and never felt at risk. Very close to San Juan, el yunque, luquillo beach and kiosks and also piñones. The beach was very clean and the water was so warm it was great. The property and the villa were very clean. I never saw Mosquitos nor other common insects, only a huge iguana that roamed the property but completely harmless. Overall was a great stay and I would recommend.

Aquatika Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (four teenagers and 2 adults) stayed at Mr. MacDonald's condo for a week. We absolutely loved our stay and found the condo to be wonderful. Aquatika is exactly as the pictures show. Each of the 5 pools is well maintained and there is plenty to do including mini-golf, basketball hoop area, and lighted tennis courts. The beach is nice and quite sandy, even out into the water. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai each morning listening to the waves roll in.

Aquatika does not offer pool or beach waiters, on-site restaurants or a front desk staff. If those are important to you, you should find an expensive hotel to stay at.

For the price, this is a perfect family getaway that offers you a peaceful and family friendly vacation. You can bring your own snacks and beverages to the pool area and the beach area. The kitchen in Arthur's condo is very well stocked with all the basics you need to enjoy family meals whenever you want. We found the complex to be very safe and we never felt any degree of apprehension. The tennis courts and mini golf are lighted as are the pool and basketball areas. The condo has a nice variety of beach toys and water accessories that we used throughout the week.

We enjoyed several days at the complex and found it very easy to take in day trips to the Bio-Bay (highly recommended), Rainforest (highly recommended) and Old San Juan (highly recommended).

We simply ran out of time and didn't make it to the area islands, rum factory tours or fishing villages which we had hoped to see.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Puerto Rico. We have traveled many times to Hawaii and found this island to be equally enjoyable as the Hawaiian Islands. We enjoyed the many roadside kiosks for pinchos (meat kabobs) and barbeque open air restaurants. Food trucks by the piers in Old San Juan also offer wonderful authentic food.

Our family would highly recommend both Puerto Rico and this condo at Aquatika for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation with plenty of fun activities for the whole family.

Nice Complex with Waterfront Convenience

  • 3 of 5

Aquatika is a very nice complex and the unit was also very nice. The owner was very pleasant and was available by phone for a quick question I had about the area. The pictures of the unit and complex are accurate and real. The area of Loiza is a little rough looking and we did not venture outside the gates unless we were in our Jeep. We got mixed feedback from our tour guides and friends from San Juan about the safety of the area, especially at night. Grocery shopping is about 6 miles away though we saw a few small grocery marts along the road, but never went in. We used Aquatika as home base for visits into Old San Juan, El Yunque, and Fajardo for a few snorkel excursions. The beach at Aquatika was somewhat dirty and could use some attention from the staff. It was accessible only by a locked gate, which didn't help our confidence about the area. The pools, hot tubs, and recreation options on-site kept our kids busy, though none of the various snack shacks around the pools were open. This is a residential complex and not a resort complex. So, if you are looking for an on-site concierge, ground transportation, restaraunts, gift shops, and amenities like that you will be disappointed. However, it is a very relaxing, well maintained residence (right on the beach) and relatively close to a lot of sights and activities.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at our beachfront apartment. The same as in many Caribbean destinations, our resort type facility is gated, so the beach is accessible only through a locked gate, this is for your safety, and also to make sure that only registered guests use the many pools at our complex. No beach in Puerto Rico is private, so safety is insured in this manner. The reason the beach may have seemed dirty was that during winter time the surf can be rough at times, and a lot of debris comes in from the Ocean (sadly, this is a worldwide phenomenon). The property staff does a great job keeping the beach clean though,even when it can be an uphill battle at times, ours is a lovely beach thanks to their efforts. If you are looking for hustle and bustle, Aquatika is not the place for you. But if you're idea of a tropical vacation is enjoying the beach, sea breeze, pools, sun bathing and enjoying quiet and relaxing times, while still being within easy driving distance to major island attractions, you have arrived!
