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.

We overall loved the property and our stay at Aquatika in Loiza.

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family- 5 daughters 2-13, and we were happy to find our stay a relaxing and diverse experience with a variety of activities. Cathy gave great directions and was responsive. We were upgraded to an ocean view unit (7003) which was the same layout. We loved the space, view, and spiral staircase. The numerous pools and ocean on the beautiful and large property ( as well as volleyball, basketball, tennis available) we met some wonderful people as well. Aquatika was more crowded over the weekend with locals from San Juan getting a family getaway as well as other continental US visitors. The property was very safe - I had read concerns about the area and we did not worry while there. The local area we found fun to explore as well in the day getting breakfast pastries and a cafe con leche. A rental car is a must and allowed for day trips to the rain forest, San Juan, Loquilla kiosks, Fajardo etc. we enjoyed just shopping or exploring for a local ice cream.

I can't say enough about how kind and friendly everyone we met was- happy to teach or tolerate our Spanish attempts and interact with our children.

During the week we felt we had the resort almost to ourselves which was an interesting contrast of the weekend. It is very family oriented and well suited to families with kids.

While the surrounding neighborhood is not a typical resort- there is a police station just at the entrance to Aquatika - we found the local flavor, and ocean along 187 fun to explore in the daytime. This was something we enjoyed doing with our family- and appreciated the rental being a reasonable cost as well. The area may not be for everyone- if you are looking for a higher end area or less family oriented- but it worked great for us!

Clean and peaceful apartment, beautiful beach and plenty of pools

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this apartment. Aquatika is the right place to spent a relaxing holiday. The apartment and the whole resort are safe and clean. There are a lot of pools to choose. Our kids loved the private beach. Ms. Seda is helpful and lovely host.

Beautiful condo and fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend using this condo if you are going to stay in Puerto Rico! The views from the quiet secluded roof top were stunning. The ocean is a bit wavy in front of the resort but still very nice. We were staying there with 4 adults and two older children and there was more than enough room for all of us with the 3 bedrooms and 3 baths! The beds were sooooo comfortable!! :) The grounds in the resort were immaculate and the pools and hot tub were great. Wish the slide and water guns would have been operating the whole time but unfortunately they only run on weekends.

Cathy and Yamil were very attentive to anything we needed. Great to work with! The only drawback to the condo itself was not having a dishwasher!? Not sure why that was because there was a spot for it under the counter. Other than that we had a wonderful experience and would use this place again in any future stays in Puerto Rico.

Thank you Cathy and Yamil!

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!
