About Yamil and Cathy

We love to receive guests from all over the world (US, Canada, Spain, England, Germany, Russia, Latin America) specially the ones that bring small children and decide to include grandma and grandpa as well. Their faces when they see all the pools, the gardens, the iguanas.... is worth a thousand words and really makes our day.

We enjoy this field of "work" and be able to use our home to share memories and be part of something special....Family Vacations!!!

Yamil and Cathy purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Yamil and Cathy chose Loiza

This property has all what you need inside the apartment; just like new appliances, comfortable bedding and pillows, and beautiful private terrace.

Aquatika has everything you can think of in a private complex; 5 pools, jacuzzi, playgrounds for the kids, direct access to the beach and is very well maintained.

Loiza is not a touristy town, but is close to everything within 7-20 miles you get to the airport, outlet malls, casinos, fine dining, ferries to Culebra, Rain Forest.

What makes this apartment unique

You get our personal attention. You will never feel like you are alone. We answer all questions within minutes. We know how special family vacations are and how insecure one can feel in a foreign country. We are here to help, so you don't rent only our unit, you also get our top of the line Customer Service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the Guests' Book.

Cathy and Yamil,

Can't wait to come back, everything was great. Awesome location for the kids!. We will miss morning coffee on the porch and being able to watch the kids swim. This was the quietest, most private time to be here with friends. Highly recommend the Bacardi Rum factory tour, El Yunque rainforest and a day at Luquillo Beach - Best Piña Colada ever!!.

Thanks for the memories.

Great potential but falls short with the small details that would make it awesome

  • 3 of 5

This is going to be tough as it will require separating the specific unit from the Aquatika Complex. So Lets start with the unit. At first look its an awesome place. Once you step in and start digging in into the towels, pillows and general cleanness oops!!!!. To make story short we ran to the store to purchase our own pillow cases and towels plus some cleaning products. Big plus is the second floor balcony, awesome place to hangout but please don't open the grill (which by the way its described as a plus in the description) you will be disappointed to the max, I know I was. No grilling here. The Aquatika Complex is pretty awesome and safe. The staff, the beach, the pools, playgrounds and other amenities where all great but if you bringing your kids be aware that the aquatic park amenities only function on the weekends. yep, no water slide or other fun kid stuff Monday through Thursday. Can't say enough great things about Cathy, she was just awesome to work with (if I was doing this again I would call Cathy first and work with her to find the best available condo). I highly recommend Aquatika but until the owner makes some serious commitments to improve this unit I am withholding my recommendations.

Owner's Response: It was really nice meeting you and your family at check in time. So glad you were pleased with our service and had such a good time at the unit upstairs balcony and at the Aquatika complex. To make your stay more pleasant than it already was, wish you have told us when we spoke several times by phone and text to take care of these little details. These were an easy fix. We usually get very good comments about how clean and neat the unit is and we thrive for the 5 stars. We value your feedback and already made some adjustments, is always good to hear from our guests to raise the bar even more.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and very clean. Ms. Seda was extremely helpful when the Isalnd lost power. She bought us a propane stove and lantern. Aquatica is beautiful. The pools are clean and the beach is great too! I highly recommend!

Cathy Is Awesome

  • 5 of 5

It was Lucky I found this place! Cathy helped me out knowing I was going to PR to Get my Kids and fight in court to get them to come to the US. Cathy was awesome and had no bad comments of where me and my family stayed. It was way better then condado. Thank You Cathy!!! Really will be back every year!!! If you are looking at any other comment don't bother Cathy is awesome and the place is what it pictures look like.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! If you are going to rent in aquatika you must rent from cathy and yamil. They were so helpful from the minute we arrived in PR. They met us at the car rental and we followed them to aquatika. They were also available throughout our stay to answer any questions or trip ideas that we had. The rental was clean and they provided us with toys for my children to play with at aquatika. Best vacation ever! Highly recommend!

30th anniversary paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are grateful to have chosen Aquatika to celebrate our 30th anniversary and to launch our sabbatical. The apartment was beautifully decorated, spacious and truly relaxing. Everything was crystal clean. The outdoor setting was serene and beautifully landscaped with access to a private beach. We enjoyed swimming in the interconnected series of pools and walking around the gorgeous grounds. Yamil and Cathy were so kind and helpful to us, eager to make sure that we were well taken care of. Aquatika is a great place to unwind, replenish and to venture out to explore a beautiful part of the island. We highly recommend it!

Something for Everyone Eenjoy

  • 5 of 5

A sigh of relief came over all as we approached the front gate knowing that our choice in stay was even better than the brochure. From the private beach to all five pools, satisfaction was on our faces the entire time. Cathy and Yamil made sure, that if we had any concerns or questions, that they were there to help. The rooms were spacious along with the patio and adjoining family room. Up to date appliances made us feel as if we never left home. I recommend, as I already have to my closest of friends and family, this two floor condo. A true gem. Thank you Cathy and Yamil for opening your home to us.

The Quinones Family.
