Excellent accomodations for our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Rio Mar Resort at this villa was a very good experience. The owner, Bill Garcia, was very good about communicating with us, and helped make our trip an excellent one! The villa was just as described. It is the perfect size for a couple and provides all the necessary items for a great trip. We made breakfast in the villa each morning and enjoyed it on the patio with a very nice view of a lake and golf course on the other side of it. The golf cart included with the villa is a very nice addition. We used it almost exclusively during our stay to get down to the beach and hotel. It wouldn't start one morning, but I believe it is because it rained pretty hard one night and something must have gotten wet in the motor area. We covered it every other night and it was fine. The washer and dryer in the villa was nice to have and worked well. The pots and pans could be upgraded sometime soon and there could be a few more utensils, but other than that everything was great. Internet worked well once I turned on the router which was powered off when we got there. When we come back to Rio Mar, we'll most likely stay here again. Thanks Bill!!

Accommodations were fine but they need pest control service.

  • 3 of 5

Accommodations were nice but on multiple incidents there were German roaches and ants in the bathroom and kitchen. I am in the pest control industry and pest are due to sanitation issues. My first order of business was to clean the unit removing any potential attractants.

In fairness I did not contact the owner. I traveled alone on business and started correcting the problem. I am not a complainer and I wanted to be honest in my review.

Hiring a professional pest control and insuring that the unit and adjacent units are clean and receiving treatments will rectify the issue.

Great vacation hideaway for a small group or a couple

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in this villa. It is great for a small group or a couple. It has all the commodities for a nice and cozy stay; Washer/Dryer, Fridge with an Ice Maker (a big plus), Top electric stove, Toaster, Coffee Maker, LED TV with DVD player and Cable TV (Liberty) connected to a Hi-Fi System complements for a nice experience. The bedroom might be small but it has a queen size bed. The bathroom is well equipped with Tub/Shower; everything was working OK there during our stay. Both A/C's in bedroom and living room worked well; a must for summer days. You have the choice of using the Villa Pool located within a short walking distance. You can also go to the beach pool located nearby the gorgeous beach. A Golf Cart is provided with your Villa, which is a GREAT plus to get to the Beach Pool, the Beach and the rest of the Resort complex, including the Wyndham Resort Hotel and the Iguana Cafe. Outside the resort area there's a Grocery Store just in the corner of the main highway (#3) where you can find anything that might be forgotten in the pantry. The property was clean and was available as shown in the pictures. The owner and the responsible people in charge were always available to answer all our questions. I may recommend this property to my friends and relatives.

Great value for a great location

  • 5 of 5

Great little condo in a gorgeous resort location! Quick access (walking or with the supplied golf cart) to the beautiful beach and pools makes this a convenient place for couples or small families. The space was a bit tight with 2 grown teenagers and my husband and myself, but we made it work and had a fantastic vacation! Having a kitchen with stovetop and a full fridge made cooking in easy-- and we could enjoy our meals on the pretty porch. The ensuite washer and dryer was nice-- we could pop in our dirty clothes at the end of the day. The owner was easy to communicate with, and he made sure everything was taken care of with our stay. I would like to come back again with just my husband and no kids, it was so relaxing and fun! Just to note: the condo is right by the El Yunque Rainforest and close to the snorkeling expedition port. It was also a reasonable drive to Old San Juan for a day trip. Loved our vacation!!

Comfortable Property with a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This quiet and well located apartment inside the Wyndam Rio Mar Resort proved to be a comfortable oasis and "jumping off" point for activities in the Greater San Juan and El Yunque Rainforest area. You enter through 2 security gates and are welcomed by the sight of your own golf cart parked in front of the steps to the unit! Since the resort is large and spread out, the golf cart was great for going to the beach, the main hotel ( restaurants & casino) or just exploring.

The apartment itself was well equipped with a nice balcony overlooking the golf course. It is an end unit so there was no "hemmed in" feeling as you enjoyed the view. Inside the WIFI worked well and the flat screen TV had all the channels expected. The kitchen had a large refrigerator with ice maker and the microwave oven came in handy on several occasions. Although there was an air conditioning unit in the living area, it was rarely needed because of the breezes coming in with the balcony doors open. The bedroom, while small, was more than adequate and had it's own air conditioner.

While modest in size, this apartment was the kind of place you looked forward to coming back to after a long day of touring-----it was homey and welcoming.

Perfect for one or two people to enjoy Puerto Rico!

Nice place; beautiful resort

  • 3 of 5

The property itself was clean and comfortable. There was no oven, so that made cooking difficult and the toilet doesn't flush well. The battery wasn't charged on the golf cart nor was it gassed up so we had to run and get gas unexpectedly, then we were stranded when the battery died. We understood from the website that there was snorkel gear and golf clubs, but we didn't find any clubs and only one snorkel mask but the strap was broken. No fins. The resort was beautiful, although the pool for cluster #2 had a broken spa, so no whirlpool. Overall we had a pleasant time, and the caretaker and owner were very nice and easily available when called. It was fairly priced for what you got.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your Review. 1) No oven, We do have an electric cook top on the kitchen counter. 2) Slow flushing toilet, Plumber cleared toilet. 3) Golf cart, Battery was replaced along with the fuel filters. We want to prevent this from happening again. 4) Golf clubs/ Snorkeling gear, They are available in the resort. We do not provide them. I reached out to Home Away to clarify this on our page. 5) Spa/whirlpool, Contacted Administration and it has been repaired. My apologies for any inconveniences. We will monitor the villa and it's contents closer. To future guest’s, It does help if you reach out to us during your stay with any issues that might arise. We will rectify them in a timely manner.
