Great studio apt that was able to provide enough room for me my wife and 2 kids (age 12 & 14) who absolutely loved the beach and pool right in front of the property. I would stay here again and thanks to the owner for all his hospitality in helping us out.

Great stay and excellent accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in good condition and has everything you need for a short or extended stay. We are a family of 4 -- with 2 kids, ages 3 & 4. The apartment has a perfect location if you are planning to do beach and pool everyday. The kids had a blast and we all enjoyed having breakfast and dinner in the balcony. The A/C and fan worked wonderfully and will cool you down from the PR heat. Having a kitchenette is perfect, especially if you have kids and want to whip some snacks or easy meals during the stay. Having cable was great, and wifi was super convenient. I have to agree with the previous reviewer about the positioning of one of the night stands... once you open the sleeper sofa the path to the closet/bathroom is blocked; but we did the same thing and moved the night stand. Also, it would be amazing to have an extra set of keys. I had to go out by myself and leave the apartment gate unlocked in case there was an emergency and my husband & kids had to get out of the apartment.

I can't say enough about the convenience of the location, the building staff was very helpful and super nice, and we felt secure at all times in the building and parking basement. Yes, you can hear people walking around or being loud at night... but you experience that in any other place or hotel.

Overall we had an excellent experience and would love to go back soon! We recommend this rental to anyone.

Nice place, great location.

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. A person would have a difficult time competing with the value of this location, considering the prices of surrounding properties. The location is what truly sets this place apart. You are right in front of the pool (which I never utilized having such a beautiful beach right in front.) and located on the ground floor, which means no having to go up and down the buildings elevators. The small front porch is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Walgreen's, which is literally right across the street, is open 24 hours a day and can provide pretty much all you need for your stay. Restaurants ( fast food and dine in) are all within walking distance. The fact that the owner provides two beach chairs, Boogie boards, and a small cooler for drinks was a nice touch that we took regular advantage of. The refrigerator has an ice maker, which helps with stocking the small cooler. The parking lot felt safe and secure, as the facility (Marbella) is gated, with security. At no time did we feel unsafe, even with the parking being under the building. Access was fairly easy as the owner provides a remote for the gate. Two suggestions for the future and a word of caution: 1. Provide renters with two keys. As the key is needed to re enter the complex and is connected to the studio key, whoever goes out needs to bring the key with them. This became an inconvenience when one of us wanted to go ahead of the others to the beach or to the store. Not a huge inconvenience, but an inconvenience nevertheless. 2. Our stay included 4 people. Two adults and two children. At night, with the sofa bed open, entry into the bathroom was very difficult, as the sofa bed, when open, blocks entrance into the bathroom. This required some re-arranging of the end tables to facilitate easy access to the bathroom, as no one wants to step over a bed in the middle of the night trying to reach the bathroom. This should not be a problem for a group of 2 as they will not utilize the sofa bed. The word of caution pertains to privacy with regards to sound. It is easy to hear anyone passing by very clearly and easily, as the sliding doors to not provide much sound insulation. This was not a major problem, but something a visitor should take into consideration if they view sound privacy as a priority. Overall, with the two noted exceptions, we were pleased with our stay. You will be hard pressed to find better amenities for the price and location.

Prefect location for two people to enjoy Puerto Rico.

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! This condo is located in the perfect place to explore the island. If you want to stay near, the pool is in front of you and the beach a few more steps. Plus the casinos and restaurants of the large hotels. The condo has everything you need including a parking space. The building is gated. It has 24 hour security that make you feel welcomed and safe. I will definitely go back!

great beachfront studio

  • 4 of 5

We are familiar with the isle Verde location so this studio was perfect for the two of us. The king size bed was comfy and the air conditioning worked fine. The studio was fully stocked along with 2 beach chairs,towels and cooler. The patio was nice with a large round table and chairs. The pool was directly in front of the unit and is very large with a separated children's area. The grounds were nice and also an outdoor shower to rinse the sand away. The only problem we had was we called the owner 5 times about the TV and no return call. Luckilythe second day my husband got lucky and found the right button. I would return again in spite of all the locks to go anywhere.walgreens right across the street and bus stop in front. Hope this helps.
