A spacious villa of 1950 square feet overlooks the Wyndham 'Ocean' golf course. Entertain yourselves from the balcony watching play on the most challenging green (# six) of both 'Ocean' and 'River' courses. Within two minutes, walk to the cluster # 4 community pool. Within 15 minutes, leisurely walk (or drive in 3 minutes) to the coconut palm lined beach where you can enjoy the owner and owner guest beachside pool or plunge into the 85 degree water of the Atlantic Ocean. Occasionally there are small waves fun for body surfing.
Leaving the property, you are only twenty minutes from the EL Yunque tropical rain forest. The airport is reached in a half hour and Old San Juan in about 45 minutes.
We were so excited for our first trip to PR and boy, am I glad we decided to stay at Dennis' beautiful villa! The villa itself is everything you would imagine it to be - clean, spacious with a beautiful and peaceful view from the balcony. Dennis was as everyone has said -- gracious, helpful and attentive. We have 5 children, so we needed advice about grocery stores, places to eat etc. and Dennis always replied immediately. The beds were incredibly comfortable (I LOVED the linens), which was great as I suffer with an achy back. Both the master and one of the other bedrooms also has a TV, which the kids appreciated after a long day at the beach or rainforest. The VIP passes were wonderful and we spent a lot of time at the hotel amenities. Be warned though, the security there is very tight, so be sure to bring your passes, a picture ID and Dennis' phone number just in case. After you get to the hotel, you'll need to go to the towel hut where they will give you a bracelet for the week. Piece of cake once you have it! The hotel has 4 pools and 3 massive hot tubs (the kids loved those, too!) Also, don't miss the rainforest and check out Carabali Rainforest tours if you can! The horseback riding was amazing! Also, be sure to access the villa at least a few times from the main gate as the views are breathtaking! If you have a car, check out Mi Vida cafe just across route 3 in Palmer (5 mins away) It's delicious and affordable! SO if you're considering a villa in Rio Mar, look no further! It's close to everything and still in a beautiful relaxed and quiet spot. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! Thank you, Dennis!
Our family had a terrific two week vacation. The condo is impressive. It is very spacious and clean. Everything is in perfect working order, the WiFi, the air conditioning, the appliances, the grill etc. The beds are comfortable and the furniture in great condition. We are a family of 5 with a 22 year old, 20 year old and 17 year old. There was plenty to do for all of us. We used the pool in cluster 2, it was closer and had a hot tub. We walked to the main pool and beach, it takes about 10 minutes. My son walked with his golf clubs to the club house and then took a golf cart to the driving range. It is a good idea to rent a car. We went to Luquillo Beach, El Yunque Rain Forest, San Juan, and the sugar plantation in Arecibo. The view from the balcony is very peaceful. I spent many hours listening to my audio book and admiring the beautiful grounds of the golf course. Dennis did everything that he said that he promised. The security guard was expecting us and the keys and gate clickers were right where they were supposed to be. We didn't have any negative issues at all, it was a wonderful condo. Thank you Dennis for a terrific holiday.
We are so impressed with how nice and well kept the villa is. We had a fantastic time and truly enjoyed your facilities. The villa was in great condition. We found everything we needed and more. It is spacious and we had plenty of room and areas for the children and the grown-ups. If the opportunity arises, we would love to do business with Dennis and Lourdes again. We would love to go back and enjoy the area again.
Our family of six had a wonderful stay at this villa. Our ages range from 61 to 18. The grounds had things to do for all of our different interests. The villa is very spacious and designed so that no one was ever cramped or in each others way. We could come together in the family room, or go off to different areas to do our on thing. The villa is located in a very convenient area for most of the adventures that Puerto Rico offers. I would definitely recommend renting a car, as we did, if you are planning on seeing the island, outside the Rio Mar grounds. If we ever make it back to PR, we would definitely stay here again!
First visit to Puerto Rico and we loved this location. The resort at Rio Mar gave us a great place to hang out as well as a convenient location to make trips to the rainforest, Fajardo, etc.
The Villa was very clean and well maintained, AC, cable, and Internet were all nice amenities. Our family enjoyed having a kitchen and a grill for preparing food.
The villa is not walking distance to the main pool/resort area and there is no free parking at that area. We found that we were able to park at the golf course clubhouse and take the free shuttle to the hotel. There is another small pool nearby which was a nice option.
Dennis was fantastic to work with and made everything easy for us. We highly recommend staying here.
I will start by saying I have been to Puerto Rico MANY times (having lived there as a member of the military and my daughters all growing up there) - rented many places - had many decent experiences and some not. THIS WAS WITHOUT QUESTION THE BEST TIME WE EVER HAD!!!!
This property is in amazing condition! The wide open layout just brings the whole family together in one big area! The bedrooms downstairs - perfect for those who retire early. The views of the golf course are splendid. Getting around Rio Mar as whole - easy (once you do it once). Easy to get around the local area (Luquillo Beach a must - and King Seafood in Luquillo amazing). Access the pool inside the gluster - easy! Access (and getting to) the residence pool at the beach - easy! And that was our favorite spot! The pool might as well be on the beach!
I don't even know what else to say - as I have so much positive! Dennis and his family were always responsive and easy to reach!
WE WILL BE BACK and this will be the only unit I ever consider! THANK YOU AGAIN for making the stay (for my daughters wedding) so amazing! THANK YOU THANK YOU!
