About Madelin Colon
I was born, raised and, currently live in San Juan. Although I have been around the globe, there is no place to me like this little piece of land in the middle of the Caribbean.
Madelin Colon purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Madelin Colon chose Medianía Alta
This complex was one of the last beach front apartments built in Puerto Rico. It is well taken care off and we take pride in it and we want our guests to feel at home, relaxed and happy.
What makes this Apartment unique
Loiza is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but is close enough to drive to town if you want to enjoy the night life of Condado and Old San Juan.

I traveled with my 3 children and stayed five nights at this rental. It was the best decision I made during my trip. The apartment complex is located in Loiza, a town with rich history and food. The grounds are very well kept and the complex has three large pools, a kiddie pool and a Jacuzzi. It also has private access to a beautiful beach. My children were in heaven as they went to the beach and the pool every day. The aftermath of Hurricane Maria is reflected at the beach because of the numerous downed trees, but even still the water was clean and calming. The complex also had recreation areas for the kids (playground, swings, etc) and there were working showers in every pool so folks could rinse up before/after dipping in the water. The staff at the complex were very helpful and directed us to a small supermarket/pharmacy down the street that had all the food and items needed for our stay. In terms of the apartment itself, it was kept immaculate. It is FULLY equipped - we really didn't have to bring anything! It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one of the bathrooms is located in the master BR). All bedrooms have cross ventilation and A/C. The showers were stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. One of the bedrooms has a bunk bed (full size on the bottom, twin on top) and a nice-sized wall to wall mirrored closet. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and same closet. The water pressure in the showers and toilets was excellent, too. The apartment is very well lit and has great cross ventilation via two balconies. One of the balconies faces a forest in the backyard, which was a great place to unwind after a long day. The other balcony faces the front of the apartment and it was very breezy as well. The kitchen had all the supplies needed - cups, glasses, utensils, dinnerware, pots and pans, and even specialty items such as "tostonera" (we used it to make tostones!). Madelin had stocked the pantry with food items, so we actually had access to food as well. The apartment (and the complex in general) is very quiet, and it had a very relaxing atmosphere. The apartment was very clean and incredibly well kept. We particularly enjoyed having unrestricted access to the pool and the ocean for a fraction of what it would cost at a hotel in the capital. If you rent a car, you don't need anything else. This rental was absolutely great and my children loved it so much that they wanted to stay! I wholeheartedly recommend it to others without hesitation.
Very nice place! Helpful host.
Nice complex. Unit was attractive and clean. Owner provided nice amenities.
Nightmare stay - 0 stars
I went on vacation with my family and once we were 5 minutes away from the apartment I knew I had made a big mistake. The location is in a shady neighborhood. One guard even warned us not to leave the premises after dark. After we arrived we went to the beach. The beach was disgusting. It was brown dirty water with rotten coconuts floating in the water. We tried using the so called pools & one was closed & the other one that was a size of a bathtub was filthy. Since we couldn't use any of the facilities we went to the apartment. There the screen doors we're off track & the bugs would enter the apartment. The apartment has no shades so you have no privacy & can't even sleep in the living room. The TV in the kids room didn't work. The AC in the master bedroom made noise. Once I told the owner she told me she wasn't responsible for the beach being dirty & she wasn't responsible for the pool being closed. We spent the night & went to another beach since we couldn't use the one by the apartment. After I came back at night the guard would not open the gate for half an hour even though she was there. She claimed that she was dealing with a water Issue. Once we got to the apartment there was no water. After all this I called the owner & told her I was not going to stay the remaning 3 days & to refund my money. At first she refused but then she agreed. Before we left we cleaned the whole apartment & left it spotless. We left in the middle of the night because my wife & kids didn't want to stay another night. After we left it took the owner 2 weeks to return my deposit & charged me the whole cleaning fee of 4 days even though I only stood one night. She claimed it was nonrefundable which it's not. If you are planning to stay in Puerto Rico please stay away from this place especially if you are traveling with children!!! It's a nightmare!!!
We have owned this unit for 13 years and have been renting it for over 8 years. We have had many good and excellent reviews and comments. This is the first time we have received a bad review and we are in total awe. We are professionals and take great care of our renters and of our apartment. We have two children and they love it there, as hundreds of renters have and will. We are proud of our place and invite you to read ALL REVIEWS. Contact us for any question. We are here to help.
Regarding the specific points of the review: The family arrived the Sunday of the 4th of July weekend. There had been torrential storms during the prior 2 weeks. The beach was as it is after heavy rains. It takes a few days to get back to its pristine condition. The main pool was closed on Monday for maintenance after a weekend of parties. There are two pool areas, and one was always opened during their stay. They had at their disposition and used, the boogie board and the beach chairs. We encourage guests to explore and visit different areas of the island.
The renter informed on Sunday night that one screen door was off track and that there was a stuck DVD on the kids room TV . Next day we were there to reset the screen door. The living room TV, which has Cable, had a DVD player working properly. The bedroom TV now has a new DVD player that also receives Wifi.
The apartment has window shades on both bedrooms for a comfortable night sleep. The living room area has no curtains on the balcony doors for light and air to flow. This area is not for sleeping. The apartment is just as the pictures show.
The AC units cool perfectly and are Inverter Wallpacks that are energy efficient.
The area has 24 hour security and the guards are helpful. Loiza is a quiet residential beach neighborhood that is secure during the day and night and safer than San Juan. The security deposit was returned automatically by the Homeaway system when no issues were reported. The renters informed us that they would leave by morning of the 3rd day and we asked to be either called or texted when they exited the apartment. They did not do so. They were reimbursed the same day they left for the 2 nights they did not use. The cleaning fee is a non-reimbursable fee. We have a professional cleaning every time a renter leaves and change sheets and towels, etc. These renters left garbage hidden in a cupboard and sand all over the unit. Our cleaning standards are much higher.
Loiza is located on the northeast part of the main island, adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. It is located about 25 minutes from the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport, about 35 minutes from Old San Juan and 20 minutes from the El Yunque Tropical Forest. It is blessed with warm tropical waters, copious wild life and great golf resorts nearby. It is great for the avid explorer as well as for the traveler in need of a restful vacation. Other Activities: While you are staying in Puerto Rico, you should not miss El Yunque Rain Forest, night kayaking at the bioluminescent bay and snorkeling on nearby cays. Golf: For the golfer, there are several championship courses nearby, just 2 to 10 minutes away from some of the World´s top golf courses. St Regis Resort and Bahia Beach Golf Course, and Berwind Country Club are just a 2 minutes drive away. The Trump Gulf Club (Puerto Rico Open), the Río Mar Beach Wyndham Resort and the Gran Meliá Resort are just 10 minutes away.
