Great place for a short stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Noel's condo for a few nights. It was a great experience. The place is very clean, the location is perfect, and Noel was super nice. When we arrived, the tv and the WiFi weren't working and he came by later that same day to replace both. I would highly recommend this place.

Very Nice Condo and Location!!

  • 5 of 5

The View from the balcony is Amazing!! Better than the pics on here...Noel the owner was really patient with me... answered ALL my questions, returned deposit in a week, even listened to my minor suggestions for next year when I return!! Cant wait!!! Had an awesome time here, security is Good, condo complex is clean and grounds kept. easy access to the beach , where we were every day!! Not real close to SanJuan- like 45 mins drive from airport, but i knew that. I have to say we found this little place -BoardRiders- just down from condo- watch surfers and have aome Rum punch!!! Amazing Birthday and Vacation!!! I will b back next Year!!!

Wonderful apartment Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a super time in Luquillo. We had perfect weather, people were very friendly, the apartment was very clean and decorated very nicely. The location was perfect for anyone who wanted to do many site seeing things, however we chose to be beach bums, and it was a perfect place to do that too. We suggest trying out the Brass Cactus to eat with happy hour being Monday thru Friday was 4-7 it didn't disappoint. We were very pleased with all our accommodations, Noel was super easy to work with and we look forward to going back!!

Wow! Stayed a month and had the most wonderful time! Large balcony with a fantastic view. Condo was nice and clean. Noel was great to work with and responded immediately to our questions. So much to do - kayaking; rain forest; ziplining; island trips; etc., etc., etc. Great beaches; weather; people; and places to visit. We will definitely be back again next year! Thanks Noel!

Clean, family-friendly getaway

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this was a great vacation getaway. The security was strong, we felt completely safe allowing our daughters (12 &14) to roam about the grounds. The unit was nicely clean, and the supplying of beach equipment & chairs, games, video player, etc, was above and beyond what might be expected. The view from the terrace was phenomenal - like a picture post card! There was a nice breeze through the living room area of the apartment at all times, which somewhat alleviated the fact there was air conditioning only in the bedroom area. The decor was nice, the swimming pool was GREAT and other recreation amenities were exactly as described. The red-sanded beach was clean and the water was clear. Laundry, grocery store, restaurants and Walgreens were close by and easily accessible.

When we first arrived (a Monday), there were very few people - it appeared only 1 other unit on our floor was occupied. When Friday came, the units began filling up, and remained that way through the July 4 weekend. This resulted in an increase in noise level through the weekend which lasted into the night hours.

There were just a few minor things that kept us from giving this unit 5 stars. First, as previously mentioned, the entire unit was not air conditioned. There was a window unit in the bedroom only. With our two children sleeping in the living room area, one or two nights were somewhat miserable for them. Second, there were not enough towels for four people. We had to use the beach towels for bathing, leaving no clean towels for the beach or pool. Third, the television had limited channels - just a few movie channels. We were starved for news by the end of the week. Finally, certain kitchen things appeared to be lacking. For example, there was no pitcher in which we might make ice tea to put in the refrigerator.

Having said all this, however, we were pleased with the unit, and would probably return. Noel was good to work with, and followed through on everything he promised. The unit is easy to get to from San Juan, and close to El Yunque rain forest as well as close to Fajardo, where one can take a ferry to the islands of Vieques and Culebra. People in the local area were friendly and helpful, and this was especially meaningful when you realize we do not speak Spanish at all.

Owner's Response: I greatly appreciate this feedback helping us to better serve future guests. I am in the process of expanding the channel offering. Regarding the air conditioner (a/c) probably it was overlooked on the description of the unit where it does mention that only the bedroom has a/c. We will be taking care of all other recommendations.

Best By Far

  • 5 of 5

aI don't know where to start concerning my stay at Playa Azul III .It was by far the cleanest and best vacation rental I have stayed at .The view was fantastic and the deck enormous .Everyone we met on the premises and in Luquillo went out of their way to help us and were so friendly ! I would love to keep this spot as my own little secret but I guess I will share with others ! We will definitely be back next March .One small thing to take note of,new beach chairs would be nice .I hate to complain because everything else was perfect !
