|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Beware - not all the units at Aquatika are close to the beach. This cluster is just steps to the beach, being at the main pool area and really close to the gym and heated pool. You will enjoy being at one of the best Aquatika locations, at a Penthhouse.
Beautiful beach apartment located in northeast side of Puerto Rico. Aquatika, located only 35 minutes away from the San Juan International Airport, is a magnificent 24 hours gated community that has direct access to the beach, 5 pools (including Water Park, water slide and River Pool), gym, playgrounds, mini golf (18 holes), hot tub, basketball, tennis courts, gazebos and more. Aquatika is ideal for an unforgettable vacation experience with or without children.

Also, an astonishing view from the Terrace is amazing, including the BBQ that is not allowed at the other balcony units.
Within 10-25 driving distance you will find The Outlet, U.S. National Park El Yunque, Hacienda Carabalí for horseback riding, mountain bike, go-carts and 4 tracks guided tours, Wyndham Rio Mar Hotel & Casino with 2 courses and more…Old San Juan is 40 minutes away.

Wish bed mattresses be more comfortable. Facilities where amazing.
The Aquatica property is a great facility. We enjoyed our stay a lot - the restaurant La Parilla outside the gates was the most amazing experience, awesome food, great drinks and an owner that treated us very well - he even made us a gallon of mojito to bring back to the apartment. The resort requires a car if you want to see something else, but all in all, the facilities were great and worked out well for us and the 4 kids ranging from 2.5 to 7 years old. The kids loved the pools and the adults loved the beach. We ventured out in the community and found supermarkets, liquor store, pharmacy. So if you are cool with walking a bit up and down "main street" you should be fine without a car.
The apartment is on a great location on the property as well, close to the major pool and a short walk to the beach. We arrived 3am in the morning and didn't really pay attention to details when we arrived and when we woke up we just wanted to be outside to soak in the sun. The whole place could use a good scrub and it wouldn't hurt if the utensils and plates were updated to at least be sufficient for 8 people, along with at least one frying pan that is leveled on the stove. The plastic covered mattresses and pillows (underneath the sheets) didn't really help to get a good-nights sleep, but it all worked out ok. Towels were provided, but one or two extras would have added some extra value. The crib/pack and play that was promised when we arrived wasn't provided but it worked out well anyways. I am sure the owners are very attentive to any comments/concerns, but we were really too lazy to bother. These were just details that would have made the stay impeccable, like having gas in the tank for the grill that is provided on the top floor terrace.
Tennis equipment was available in the apartment which was great, the tennis courts were great too. The tennis players were also very impressive in the heat ;-)
The stay was amazing with everything PR has to offer. We will be back for sure.
Great apartment in a quiet location. Nice private beach. Only thing to improve would be a better mattress liner as the plastic covers on now are uncomfortable to sleep on.
First of i want to say thank you to carmen, she worked out a plan with us since the beginning since she was very understanding that my family and i were dividing this trip so she worked out a payment arrangement with us, which was so helpful! She was always available with any concerns through txt, email and phone calls. Arriving to the penthouse it was a bit confusing but we found it with her help. The outside seems a little dangerous but it wasn't at all during the day. The penthouse is located in a gated community in which my family and i loved we felt absolutely safe! Right in front of our penthouse theres the pool in which we spent a lot of our time even when it was raining since the water its always warm. We loved the we had our own key to the gate in the back to access our private beach area it was an incredible view and the water was also warm!.. Once walking in the apartment we fell in love! With the theme of the ocean, the set up, and everything! The only little discomfort were the beds but not a big deal. We cooked everyday, and loved that we were able to wash inside the complex.
We would definitely book this place again and recommend it to others!!!
We stayed here the week before Christmas 2015 and enjoyed ourselves!
-The condo complex is large with good security and easy parking. We felt safe in the complex at all times.
-The private beach was wonderful and we even had 2 days where we were the only ones on the beach!
-With 5 pools there was no shortage of options. Some pools were busier and some were quieter so you can find whatever you need.
-Carmen was super helpful to us as we had some issues the night we arrived in San Juan before we got to the condo. She was always very responsive and pleasant.
-While the condo is off in a quieter area, it is not far to a WalMart, grocery stores and restaurants.
-It was nice to have 2 living spaces (kitchen/living room and upstairs tv area). The rooftop deck was awesome too.
-With no wi-fi in the condo, my teenagers weren't thrilled. There is wi-fi in the main office area but it was spotty as well.
-The beds were not the most comfortable and the upstairs couch needed repair or replacement. We did share that information with Carmen.
-While the condo area/complex is great, the area surrounding it is less nice and seems quite poor. Not that that's a bad thing but safety wise, it was worrisome to us with kids.
-The directions to the condo were somewhat hard to follow and since street signs are hit and miss, we had trouble finding the condo. BUT, we gave Carmen clearer directions from the other way so hopefully this won't be a problem for others.
This condo was perfect for our family. It had plenty of space for our three sons to spread out, space to cook and eat meals together, and plenty of space to relax and unwind from a long day of sightseeing. It was clean and easy to check into and out of. I especially LOVED the rooftop patio. We would definitely stay here again.
