|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
17th floor beachfront condo. Tastefully decorated. Secure Bldg in prime beach location 5 minutes from airport. Pool, tennis court. In-unit laundry. Cable TV. WiFi included. Central A/C.
Large and comfortable, right on the beach, owners extremely responsive. Microwave broke and we had a new one the next day. Armando was prompt in all our communications.
We just came back from a 5 night stay here and we had a great time. The condo has been updated from the pictures on the site and the view from the 17th floor is more beautiful in person than the view form the picture. The condo was clean, very spacious and met all of our needs. Making reservations and getting keys the day of arrival were easy. There is also one parking space provided if you plan on renting a car or having a visitor. The owner also provided a list of places to visit and restaurants in the area. This is not our first trip and wont be our last to San Juan. Hopefully this place is available the next time we visit. There were 6 adults and we all had plenty of room in this condo.
The pictures don't give justice to this place. This place was MORE beautiful. Each room had views it was a corner condo so pick a room and there you go Puerto Rico everywhere. I was so appreciative when they got us a brand new pack and play for the baby, avoiding having to travel with one. The owner and staff of this building where great! They offered excellent advice as what to do on the island and how to get there. My whole family felt at home, my three kids, my husband, and two sisters. I would recommend this to anyone. As a mom I felt a peace with all my kids. The security was awesome all though I never felt concerned.
We have stayed at a nice Stela Maris condo in the Condado area, but this Isla Verde apt surpassed it in location, security, spaciousness and beachfront.The owner was super-nice and very responsive to the few questions i had.
We had a most excellent stay, even our 3 teenage girls were happy, lol!
For our first trip to Puerto Rico, I must say, staying in this condo, was one of the best ideas. From the moment we arrived, Esther and Frank were there to greet us, and made us feel very welcomed. They also checked in with us a few times throughout our stay. The owner provided us with some recommendations prior to our arrival, which was nice to have, being our first trip.
As soon as we entered the condo, we noticed that it was very spacious, and the view was SPECTACULAR! The condo is at the end of the building, which gives a very good view of PR. The location is perfect, since it's right off the beach, and close to restaurants and shopping locations. The building was well maintained, and the staff was friendly. The condo was well stocked with all the necessary items, as if we were in our own home, which was GREAT!
This was a vacation that we will have to take again, and when we do, we will definitely look into staying here again!
My family and I traveled to PR on vacation (2 adults and our 19 and 23 year-old daughters) The building was very safe and so is the area. At times it can be frustrating because you need a key to enter and exit from the apartment and to/from the beach/pool but I will take that anytime since we were traveling with two young ladies. We felt safe at any time. Even at late hours of the night, there are lots of people walking around the neighborhood going to clubs, restaurants,etc. The police patrols the area constantly.
The apartment is very nicely furnished and well stocked! (the furniture is different than the photo) Lots of towels both for bath and beach and lots of linens. The owner provided excellent customer service before our trip and his mother, Esther and her husband Frank were absolutely a pleasure to deal with once we arrived at the apartment. Esther called me a couple of times to make sure that everything was fine and to see if we needed anything. The owner, sent me a text message as we arrived to verify that everything was fine. We had plenty of room to move around and to have our own space, if we wanted it. My favorite part was definitely the balcony and the view. I looked forward to getting up to my cup of coffee to enjoy watching the waves. My only suggestion would be to add a few folding chairs and a beach umbrella to bring to the beach. We ended up paying $26/day to rent an umbrella and 4 beach chairs (you can only rent them until 5pm)
The beach is a public beach so we were able to mingle with a lot of the locals as we celebrated the 4th of July. The locals were very respectful and just enjoyed and played at the beach which gave it a nice feeling of home as opposed to a touristy feel.
We visited Ruben's Cafe across the street and Mi Casita (food was ok but definitely not very authentic and VERY pricey. We decided to rent a car and toured the island. That was a great idea. It was very easy to drive around (with a GPS) and ventured out to Casita Miramar near Santurce and many local eateries outside of the tourist area. But if you want a taste of real local food, make a left out of the building or catch a cab ride if you don't like walking (about 20 minutes) to Bebo's. Absolutely deliciousness! Best local food that we found was La Fonda del Jibarito in Old San Juan (excellent food and very inexpensive) The four of us ate 3 courses and a carafe of sangria for $80! You must visit El Yunque and Luquillo beach as well.
Best beach location in San Juan. Right next to WaterClub Hotel and steps to El San Juan Hotel. Easy transportation to Old San Juan.
