We love the place, its relax atmosphere and is compatible with our family's life-style.
Great place and location for a great price!
We were very happy with the condo. Much bigger than expected. Would stay again
We really enjoyed staying at this condo. It is really nice having the upstairs penthouse with balcony that most of the other units in this resort do not have. There is a beautiful ocean view and also a view of the marina, which is really nice to see. The pools & workout center are very nice and well-maintained. There is great security at the resort as well. There is so much to do within 10 minutes of this resort, but you will definitely need a car to get around.
The beds in two of the three bedrooms are very comfortable (king & double). The beds in the third bedroom are 2 twins and really most suitable for smaller people or children. My two kids (6' tall) did not sleep well in the beds.
The only reason I did not give it a five star rating is that there is no dishwasher and no air conditioning in the main living areas. It was 80-84 degrees while we were there, and we felt hot. We could open the balcony doors but then the mosquitoes came in. So really we would have enjoyed it a little more if there was a/c in the entire unit. However, the a/c in the bedrooms worked very well.
We would definitely consider staying here again though. It is very clean and a nice place to stay!! Oh one more thing -- the owner is very responsive & attentive to your needs!! Also, the infinity pool overlooking the ocean is amazing!!
the condo is very big, very clean..you will love it.
the only few minor downsides. the website said the nearest casino was 1 mile away and that's the el conquistador. they took the casino out 4 years ago. also you can't use the waterpark there...so there isn't much to do in the immediate area. (not the condo's fault)
there was no lighter for the barbeque or gas in the tank....the place was missing a few things in the kitchen. not the end of the world.
the pool was cold....but overall.....very very nice.
We had a fantastic four night stay at Pena Mar where we celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday. The condo is fantastic - looks exactly like the pictures. Felt very safe - the security staff was cordial. The condo is on the 5th level with the entry way on the 3rd level. Unfortunately the elevator did not work - but it was not a big deal for us. The wi-fi was a huge plus. The rooftop terrace was fantastic - with sea breeze making up for the lack of air-conditioning. The beach chairs, beach toys and the cooler came in very handy. Winston was very responsive to my emails and inquiries. We did the Bio-Bay and Aquafari Culebra with kayakingpuertorico.com - it was an awesome experience! Would highly recommend this condo - I will definitely stay here again!
The Good - modern, clean penthouse type, on the fifth floor of a condo facility with pool and gym. Nice view of the Marina across the street and 3/4 view of ocean from balconies. Convenient elevator for access. Secure gated facility. Bedrooms are air conditioned and beds comfortable.
Lacking at this rental - maps of the area and how to get to restaurants, beaches and shopping. No ironing board and some common kitchen utensils (including starter dish soap) along with a dishwasher.
The Bad - no air conditioning in the living spaces (family room, kitchen area) and unless you like humidity be prepared to be uncomfortable. NOISE - this rental in addition to looking over the marina, borders a busy front street and the condo complex entrance. Passing traffic is heard all day and late into the night with some blasting their radios so very, very loud. Also you get the beeping of the condo gate opening and closing whenever a car comes in (it sounds like the back up beeper on trucks). First thing in the morning we heard the landscapers cutting and mowing.
The neighborhood outside of the complex is not suitable for safe walks. You need a car to drive at least 15 to 20 minutes to beaches, shopping and restaurants.
Summary - We would not stay here again and would not recommend it to others unless they don't mind the preceding.
