Absolutely beautiful condo with ocean and rain forest views

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful condo is open and airy. Air conditioning is available in the bedrooms. Everything we could possibly need was in the condo.

Highly over sold

  • 1 of 5

This was a very old property. There is no central air, but rather two noisy window air conditioners. There are no drapes on the windows so sleep was extremely challenging. They were painting the building during our stay so we had to turn off the AC and then were greeted by painters outside our bedroom window at 8 a.m. It would have been nice to have been given some type of notice. The company simply should not have rented this unit out during this particular week.

It is extremely inconvenient that only one set of keys is provided. We had the choice to leave the door open or lock our teenager in the unit while we went out for a morning walk - neither of which gave us a good feeling. When we went to the beach, we then had to coordinate our schedules. Again, added more complexity than necessary.

The kitchen is old, cabinets do not close unless closed together, although it is well stocked. I just couldn't bring myself to cook there. The refrigerator has started to rust.

The view is beautiful - no doubt. Once on the beach, it is a great location to walk and enjoy the day. There are chairs and coolers in the unit so that was a big positive. There were a number of games and movies available, but the DVD player wasn't hooked up and there are no instructions so that was useless.

When checking in and out the management company barely spoke. When dropping off the keys they didn't ask any questions or give a friendly smile.

We have had great results when renting from owners directly. This was our 4th trip to PR. I will not rent from this management company again, but will definitely return to beautiful PR.

Owner's Response: I had heard of guest, like this woman. There are people who do nothing but complain in order to get some kind of monetary compensation, but in all the years I have owned this unit, I have never encountered one, until now. On the website it clearly states that only the bedrooms are airconditioned, and the rest of unit have ceiling fans. I personally provided her with this information when I took her reservation. I also told her, like I tell all my guest, that additional keys if needed, are available when you check in.She never bothered to ask for another set. Yes, the building is about 65 years old but well maintained. The fact that painters were painting the exterior atest to that. They were suppose to finish the previous week, but due to inclement weather they needed an extra day. The kitchen cabinets are sold wood,. Yes they are not new. You are ocean front and oxidation dues happen. There were a couple of dots on the outside, and they have been painted over. The fact that this woman "couldn't bear to cook in a well stocked kitchen" because of a loose hing on the cabinet door tells you what kind of person I was dealing with. The handyman tightened the screw and the cabinet door closed perfectly. There are two 50" Smart TVs and three DVD players one is in the closet as a back up. Once again, she could have resolved it by calling the office manager. The draw under the table has the instruction booklets for all appliances including the television and VCR. A simple call to the office and the custodian would have resolved it. They office staff at Playa Azul Realty, is very profesional and helpful, as has been reported by other guest. I am so glad that HomeAway provides the owners with a private owners only section. There, they can rate their guest in a variety of ways. It provides other owners with warnings. This is the first time in 11 years. I am submitting a negative report on a tenant to them. Sad, but It makes me appreciate all the wonderful tenants I have been blessed with in the past even more.

Million Dollar View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo this past January for a week after our cruise. We loved the fabulous view from the balcony and wonderful beach. The condo is well supplied with everything you need to enjoy your beach days. Both bathrooms were nicely remodeled. The kitchen had everything you needed if you wanted to prepare meals during your stay. There is a nice grocery store which is just a short drive from the condo. Very convenient location if you want to visit the rain forest. The owner was very informative and great to work with. We would love to come back and stay again!

Beautiful Views

  • 4 of 5

This penthouse apartment is very nice but a little small, (we were 4 adults) and you do get road noise in the bedrooms as they face the street. The beautiful panoramic views do make up for the size and noise. Checking in was easy at the real estate office around the corner. The neighborhood is ok. We did walk into the lovely little town of Luquillo more then once with no problems. We found a nice little restaurant around the corner that we liked and walked to several times for dinner. Walk into Luquillo or hop in the car and you will find several restaurants to choose from. We enjoyed the beautiful beach right behind the apartment, and the rain forest is an easy 15 - 20 min drive away. If you want to stay outside of Old San Juan on your visit, this is a really nice option.

Best Condo in Playa Azul

  • 5 of 5

This condo is on the 22nd floor in building 1 on the Southwest corner of the building. The windows and doors fold completely back so that the amazing breezes and spectacular views are unobstructed and enjoyed. The sunsets are breathtaking and the sunrises are wonderful as well. The beach is conveniently right out the back with gated doors. The property is gated and secure.

We had the pleasure of meeting Miriam during our visit. She is extremely nice and genuinely wants her guests to have whatever they need to make their stay perfect. I mentioned that the pillows were in need of replacement and she immediately went out and purchased new pillows. She has stocked the apartment with all sorts of beach toys and towels and bags to carry all the gear. The washer and dryer was great! The apartment is well appointed and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped.

We found a special breakfast place in Fajardo called Las Vistas with a roof-top patio and a view of the harbor. Aromas in La Pared is inexpensive and has good breakfast and lunch. Look up the rock slide in El Yunque called Las Pailas, you can park in Carlos' parking lot for $6 and hike down his back yard to a rock side that is fun and unique. There is another fun rock slide and rope swing destination called Charco Frio in Ceiba.

We had a wonderful time in Luquillo. We will be back and definitely stay in Miriam's little corner of Heaven! Thanks Miriam!
