We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The apartment was very neat, well kept, and roomy.
This condo met our expectations. It was clean, in a great location (shopping, things to do, etc), easy to find, with a well stocked kitchen and closet (meaning extra sheets, towels, etc).
The a/c worked well, the bathroom was large, and the sitting room was good. The only negative is there is not cable tv. For anyone with a computer, the wifi works so you can surely watch movies from your laptop.
There was mis-communication getting into the condo the first time. My advice is have the exact address and explicit information to gain entrance BEFORE leaving home. I would stay at this location again if I return to NE PR.
In March 2016, my girlfriend and I stayed at Dan's Rio Grande condo. The size of the property worked for us, but I couldn't imagine trying to accommodate more than two people. The kitchen and bath were well stocked with dishes, towels, etc, and having a cooler and chairs for the beach was great. The air condition worked great. The hot water was decent in the bathroom but nonexistent in the kitchen.
The condo is located in a residential neighborhood that is extremely "rustic." Not all of the homes are maintained well, and we were awaken every morning by the crow of the neighbor's roosters. Nonetheless, we felt safe. We didn't mind the simplicity of our surroundings since we really only slept and ate breakfast there.
We rented a car from the airport--DEFINITLY rent a car. There's a ton to do in the vicinity of a short drive. Luquillo Beach and several food kiosks are about 15 minutes away. Also, the condo is about 25 minutes from the San Juan where we did a walking tour, played at the casino and partied at Club Brava. In the opposite direction, the condo is a convenient 30 minute drive from the Fajardo ferry to Culebra and Vieques.
Our biggest complaint is that we waited outside approximately an hour after a long flight before Dan arranged for someone to bring us the keys to the condo. Overall, our experience was pleasant.
Nice appartment. Clean, comfortable everything working. Friendly neighbourhood even if it looked kind of rough. Location was perfect, close to lot of places we wanted to visit. El younge, Luquillo beach, ferry to Culebra and boat taxi to Icacos. All well worth visiting. Good communication with owner and lady who let us in. Thank you very much.
This is a great little place to stay. My husband and I stayed there with our two young children, and it was so nice to have separate spaces (i.e. bedroom and living room), as opposed to the single room of a typical hotel. There are windows with thin curtains high on the wall between the living room and bedroom, which adds to the charm of the place but also lets some light from the living room into the bedroom. Our kids were still able to fall asleep regardless of that light, though, so it was no big deal. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and pots, the bathroom had lots of stuff left by previous guests like sunscreen and bug spray, and there were plenty of towels and extra blankets (if needed). As a nice bonus, there are lots of supplies you could take to the beach - beach towels, a couple camp chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler. This is a cozy little place with lots of great extras that you wouldn't get at a hotel - and at a price that is WAY less than hotels I found in the area!
The location is wonderful, too. It's a longer drive (30ish minutes) to San Juan, but much closer to El Yunque and the awesome Luquillo Beach. Since we did all of those things, it was nice to be close to two of the options! We did have to rent a car (per google reviews, though not through personal experience, do not rent one from E-Z Rent-a-car; multiple people said it's a scam as they were intentionally overcharged and delayed). Being out of San Juan, we were also close to local bakeries that make not only pastries but also breakfast pates and sandwiches - just look up any bakery and try it, every one we ate at was so tasty! The place also has lots of restaurant recommendations from the host and previous guests in a binder - be sure to check them out!
Finally, Dan is a very accommodating host! My husband and I stayed with our two young sons, and I asked if he had extra blankets so our 1-year-old could sleep on the rug or something - so Dan actually had his manager go buy a pack and play (small crib) for the place, so that we could use it!!! I was very impressed by that. He checked in (via email) and made sure we had whatever we needed. We are happy we stayed here.
my husband and I rented Dan's apartment for the Christmas Holiday. It was one of the best experiences we've had. The apartment itself was great! The location was perfect and the condo was equipped with all the amenities we needed. If you are looking for a real Puerto Rico experience I would def book this place. Thank you Dan and your family for all of your help with our stay. We could of not asked for a better time.
