My husband, 9 yr old son, 22 year daughter and I stayed here for the month of July and had a wonderful time. Rene was thorough, efficient, organized and very kind. He met us at the rental and went through every single aspect of the villa which was accurate to the last detail. We felt at home by the time he left. The villa is located in the northeast section of the island about a 25 minute drive to the airport in Isla Verde. You are 5 minutes from one of Puerto Rico's world renowned beaches, Luquillo; shopping at a nearby designer factory outlet and great local dining. El Yunque was a very short drive away, as well as the bioluminescent bay which gave us the opportunity to appreciate the wonders of mother nature at her best. The property was extremely well-kept, clean and had every amenity we could think of provided. Rene is a very nice person who cares about his villa and making his guest(s) have a stress-free and relaxing time and you feel this from the first time you speak with him. The only thing we had to do was a little bit of grocery shopping and that was it. Having the golf cart available made getting to the hotel and resident's pool a breeze. We've already recommended staying here to a few of our friends and look forward to staying here again on our next visit. We loved sitting on the balcony and being serenaded by the sounds of the coqui and equally enjoyed the view. We had the best of both worlds at our fingertips. The privacy and freedom of staying at a private residence AND the luxuries and activities of a 5 star hotel were the perfect combination for a restful, fun and exciting vacation. We can't wait to go back!

Just as good the second time around!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Rene's condo and it was just as wonderful as we remembered.

Rene is a gracious host, he provides little extra (soaps, shampoos, toothpaste) and is always available, gives great restaurant recommendations and returns calls/texts/emails promptly.

The condo is well decorated, the beds are comfortable and the view from the terrace is spectacular. I am someone who has the AC on all the time back home, but with the fans, the condo is cool enough you really don't need it.

There are two great beach options at the Wyndham-- the villa owners beach and pool, which is quieter and slightly closer, and the main hotel pool and beach, where you can also find a restaurant right on the beach. If you go to the former, the latter is about a 10 minute walk along the beach.

El Yunque and San Juan are easy trips-- less than an hour away, and Luquillo, with its kiosks is close by too.

Rene is the perfect host and his condo is a gem. We will be back.

A Return to Rio Mar after 20 Years

  • 5 of 5

My wife, med student son, and I rented for 16 days in January. Rene’s condo and his attention is everything you want and expect. Sometimes it’s difficult to determine quality of a VRBO rental from the photos, reviews, and information, or for that matter the character of person doing the renting. In this case, all aspects exceed expectations. Set aside any concerns when you rent this wonderful condo. Rene and his family take care of you every step of the way. I learned Rene is a retired Puerto Rico operations VP for a large service company. Sure adds up. He truly excels in customer service.

As to Rio Mar, we lived in Puerto Rico for two years long ago, got to know Rio Mar back then given friends who owned a condo. I cannot imagine a finer resort or one so ideally located for doing all the fun stuff that Puerto Rico has to offer. Rio Mar is exceptional, a truly special place.

Great Villa with a Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Puerto Rico to celebrate the wedding of our youngest son and his fiancé. We rented this villa to accommodate our middle son and his family, (wife and three children) and my 87 year old mother also stayed with them. This was just what they needed. Having no stairs to climbed helped my mother, and we didn't have to worry about the three year old taking a tumble either. We had a couple of family meals at the villa, that were prepared using the provided kitchen ware and dishes. Everything we needed to cook and serve was there. We grilled out on the deck one evening. It was great family fun with plenty of room for them and the four extra people who were invited. My mother loved sipping morning coffee that she had made in the kitchen with her grandson on the deck. Two bathrooms for a group this size was a must. Everything was clean and well taken care of. Plenty of beds for everyone. We had access to clean swimming pools and beautiful beaches with beach toys provided. The golf cart was very handy to have. Rene and his wife met us when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know. We were running late because of rental car backup, and Rene and Norma stayed with us until we were settled. They were very patient with us; even helping us track down a lost bag at the airport. I could go on, but I think you get the idea. We had a great Puerto Rican wedding week, and this villa and its owner helped make it so.

When I read the reviews prior to booking we figured it'd be nice but it was even better than we expected. We traveled with 4 children (3 teens and a 6 year old). The kids loved their bedroom. It was spacious enough for the 4 of them and the beds comfortable. The master was also spacious. The pictures don't do the view from the back porch justice. It's more amazing in person. The kids loved eating breakfast out there. It was great to be able to use the Wyndham Rio Mar's pool, beach and tiki bar but we thoroughly enjoyed and preferred the private pools and beach which you also have access to. You can tell the owners take great pride in taking care of this villa.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

On our third VRBO rental at Wyndham Rio Mar, we found the place we would like to return to year after year. This 2+2 villa offers a breathtaking view of the Wyndham golf course and the Caribbean beyond that we enjoyed morning, noon and night. The furnishings were upscale compared to many rentals we stayed in and the kitchen was fully even included a wine refrigerator!!! The owner met us at the San Juan Airport upon our arrival and gave us the keys to the villa and golf cart as well as the remote control that operates the short-cut gate to this particular area of the resort grounds. This is a "no-stair" unit which wasn't a real benefit for us but may be critical to some travelers. Cluster 7, where the villa is located, is the highest point in the entire development and offers the best views and is surrounded by very expensive single family homes. A round trip hike through the development is 3 miles but includes a lot of uphill and downhill which we became comfortable with. Rio Mar Resort is one of the nicest places in Puerto Rico with a fabulous hotel with a casino and several restaurants, two challenging golf courses, a tennis facility and one of the best beaches on the island. Get ready for Margaritaville Vacation Club which should be open next year and bring a few more restaurants and nightclub to the grounds of the Wyndham. Make reservations early for this beautiful villa, you won't be disappointed.
