As a Puerto Rican, I have always loved my country and wanted to own a vacation property away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan yet close enough to visit friends, family, and the sites. Fajardo is a quiet town that is close to all of the attractions. Monte Sol fits my family life style and provides a cost effective vacation rental for my guests. Love the area. It is priced right, clean, and provides wholesome, family related activities.
Fajardo is close to all of the major attractions. We are close to P.R. 3 and it is not necessary to take long winding roads up into the mountains unless you choose to do so. We are a few minutes drive away from the Rain Forest, beautiful beaches, San Juan, shopping, and seaside country towns.
This is the second time that we have stayed here. You can't really beat what you get for the price! They have everything you need right there at the condo. You can pack less clothes because they have a washer and dryer. You can go right down to the amigo and get food to cook so you can save $ by not having to eat out all the time. The king bed is super comfortable! If you have a problem you can always call Rafael! We would know about calling Rafael, because we somehow locked ourselves out on the balcony and he came over and saved us! Thank you again Rafael!! The door to the patio sticks a little (which is how I think we accidentally locked it when going out to the balcony) so I would recommend not having everyone on the balcony at the same time, or not shutting the door all the way! Of course I'm sure no one else has managed to do this, must have just been our wonderful luck! This condo is close to luquillo, which I definitely recommend luquillo beach ( take the right exit for the kiosks,when you get off the exit and stop turn right and pay $2.50 to get into the beach) it's so beautiful and clean there! They have chairs and umbrellas for rent and they have a bathroom/ changing area and showers and it costs $1 to use this for the whole day. You are also really close to the marina so if you take a day trip your like 5 minutes away. We would recommend the east island excursions snorkeling and beach trip to Culebra. You get to snorkel for about 2 hours then they take you to Flamenco beach for about 2 hours and boy was that beautiful! Also right in fajardo is the bio bay. I believe this is a must see every time you come to Puerto Rico! First time we did kayaking, which if your an excellent kayaker go for it. The second time we did the electric boat trip through bioisland and it was so much better than kayaking. You got to enjoy just riding and listening to Mario talk about what makes the biobay, the mangroves, sponge, crabs, iguanas and once you get to the bio cove they take out tarps,so even if the moon is out you can still enjoy the bioluminescence! He also showed us different star constellations! It was well worth the extra $10 per person to not almost kill ourselves kayaking! There are so many perks to staying in this condo, your just a short distance away from so many wonderful things to do, you can't beat the price, you can't beat the wonderful people who own the condo and especially having Rafael around to come save you, if needed!☺
Great location, great facilities, great experience. It's just minutes from groceries, as well as getting to the highway to head to the beaches or the ferry or whatever. The place was in great shape, and Rafael was always available when we had questions. For our first rental like this, things could not have gone smoother. Excellent experience all around.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Monte Sol. Rafael was very helpful from the time we booked until the time we left. The condo was clean, the bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked. We appreciated having a grocery store within walking distance and liked that the community was gated so that there was very little traffic around. There are great Puerto Rico'n Restaurant around and great Seafood. Check with TripAdvisor, where we left additional reviews
Rafael was really helpful and the apartment really has everything you need! It's located about 15-20min from the ferry, so it's the prime location to stay if you'd like to take the ferry to Culebra. We were able to bring beach chairs and a cooler that were available for us in the apartment. Supermarket and liquor store nearby as well as other shops.
We were able to visit Luquillo beach easily from there as well.
Rafael also had tons of brochures and information for places to go/things to see in the living room...just in case you're not sure!
MYSELF, MY HUSBAND, TWO SMALL KIDS AND MY GRANDMOTHER STAYED HERE FOR A WEEK. IT WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH ROOM. THE MAN THAT WAS ASSISTING US WITH OUR RENTAL RAFAEL WAS SO HELPFUL AND ACCOMODATING. HE ASSSITED US IN FINDING THE RENTAL BEING WE DID NOT HAVE A GPS. THE GATED COMMUNITY WAS NICE, BEAUTIFUL AND QUIET. GREAT LOCATION, CLOSE TO LUQUILLO BEACH, EL YUNQUE RAINFOREST, AND AN HOUR FROM SAN JUAN. THE FACT THERE WAS NO WIFI DIDN'T REALLY BOTHER US BEING WE WERE THERE TO GET AWAY! OVERALL I LOVED IT. WE WILL RETURN AND RENT AGAIN!
I'm very glad that I stayed in this lovely condon for a week. We had an issue finding the location because it's not showing up on gps. The owner Felix and Evelyn told us that by email. But We still could locate it. I called the property manager Rafael on the way. He was waiting for us in the condo and guided me on the phone all the way there. So nice! We so appreciated that. The house is clean and has all necessities in the kitchen. In our closet, we even found beach stuff so we used them at Luquillo beach. Kids had a lot of fun playing with the surfing boards.
The location is great. Even its not by beach, it's close enough. It's 20 minutes away from the gorgeous Luquillo beach. 30 minutes from El Yunque rain forest. It's close to Walmart, CVS. There is even a market Amigo right outside of the condo. Overall, we loved the stay. Highly recommend it.
Monte Sol Condominium is a short drive away from the pristine beaches of Luquillo, the beautiful tropical rain forest of El Yunque and other attractions such as the bioluminescent lagoons of Los Croabas. A brief 10 minute drive from the kiosks of Luquillo for food and fun. For those who like a try at the Casinos, a local casino with slot machines is within walking distance and El Conquistador is a short drive away.
