Loved Puerto Rico

  • 4 of 5

The Continental Beach Resort was a beautiful property. This particular condo was in viewing distance of the beach. Our beach was great. We had children between the ages of 13-19 and we love that the beach had waves. The property was very safe. We liked very much that the security guards made themselves noticeable throughout the grounds and at the gate. Everyone was very friendly. The grounds were meticulous. The pool area was very nice. The pool is four feet deep at the deepest. There is also a children's pool. The temperature was comfortable. Plenty of pool chairs and loungers. This property had two beach chairs that we used down by the beach often. They also had a chest of toys for younger children. We purchased a large tube for riding the waves if they decide to leave it at the resort. We loved that it had a washer and dryer in the unit, this came in very handy so we didn't have to pack so many clothes. We also used many utensils, pots and pans for cooking and the blender was awesome for our pina coladas. Plenty of dishes. I would definitely come back to this resort. The resort is located in the Palmer area not far at all from Luquillo and the Kiosk restaurants, the Rainforest and Fajardo. We rented a car and did a lot of driving and saw many great things. Ruben was quick to respond with any questions we had. Thank you Ruben for allowing us to stay here.

Nice Condo with many extras and close to area attractions

  • 5 of 5

Nice gated condo area. This condo is in a great location and on a nice beach, safety never became a concern for us here. There is so much to do close by we were not able to get it all done the week we were there. This condo is close to the El Yunque Rainforest which is amazing for hiking and its natural beauty. It is also just a few miles from the Kioskos (restaurants and shops). We also visited Old San Juan, other nearby beaches, and went to the Rio Camuy Caves park. We had a fantastic time and this place was in a great spot for visiting those places.

Condo owner is very prompt with responses to questions and does a great job. Nice courtyard and beach views off of the balcony. It was nice making use of the extras the owner provided, i.e.: cooler, beach toys, chair, beach cart, etc. Very nice comfortable beds and nice bath and beach towels.

Looking forward to coming back!

perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Puerto Rico so wee spent a long time selecting a place to stay. We were hoping for a quiet, friendly, safe place with a nice beach, pool and property. We found exactly that at Ruben's apartment. The apartment had everything we needed. Ruben took care of us well and even called to make sure our daughter was ok since she wasn't well when we arrived. The people we met in the complex were delightful. Our daughters made a few friends and most of the time it felt like we had the beach all to ourselves. It was a very short drive to the grocery stores, rainforest and restaurants. We didn't want to leave and will be sure to visit this place when we return to Puerto Rico. Thank you so much for a very relaxing 6 days. Can't wait to return.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation so far! Very clean and convenient apartment. Steps from the awesome beach. Ruben is the best property manager you can imagine. I brought my whole family and he helped me to rent another apartment close to the first one. He met us there when we arrived and was there when we were leaving. When we needed him to switch on disposal he happened to be just in front of the apartment. Truly professional. Another important thing - WiFi worked like a clock in both apartments. Also, good mattresses. We are returning and renting only from Ruben for sure.

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ruben's home is amazing as well as Ruben!!!! The pictures really do not do it justice!! Before our stay ANY questions we had Ruben answered them not only with great answers, but with a very prompt response time! One of our questions was how to get to the house as it was our first time in Puerto Rico. He literally gave us turn by turn directions..did I say AMAZING!! Once we got there, we had our own parking spot. The house was beautiful and literally a stones throw from the beach! The house is 2 bedrooms however you can fit a lot of people! Lots of beds and pullout couches/futons. The house was loaded with everything you can want -- dishes, extra sheets and blankets, towels, beach towels, a cooler for the beach and rolling cart for the cooler for the beach, everything you will need for your vacation/trip. Not only was Ruben great, but the people who are on the property (i.e. this is a gated community) were also extremely nice and helpful with anything that we needed. The front gate people knew us by name and always said hello and goodbye whenever we were leaving or coming. I cannot say enough great things about Ruben and his home. He was very accommodating with everything we needed. Ruben is simply the best and anyone will have a great time!
