Glenda Reyes purchased this condo in 2006
We rented this unit during our spring break. There were 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 9, 12) in our group. The condo and complex are perfect for families (kids of all ages). Unit is exactly as advertised - updated, very clean and well appointed, perfect location within complex. Roof top terrace was a huge bonus. Glenda was very easy to work with and always responded quickly. We did a catamaran excursion out of Fajardo, visited old San Juan, and toured the El Yunque Rainforst. Aquatika is centrally located for all of these activities which really gave us the ability to enjoy the island without a lot of time in the car. Complex is also located near a Walmart which was great for groceries. We would stay here again as well as recommend this unit to our friends and family.
Thank you Glenda!
The condo was very clean and stylishly decorated. The rooftop patio was great - table for eating, lounge chairs and high table/chairs. The location of the condo on the property is ideal - close to the two nicest pools and easy access to walking down to the beach. The kitchen was fully stocked with all gadgets one would need, in addition, grateful to have access to basics like Olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar, laundry soap, bug spray, etc. . .The beds were not as comfortable as we had hoped, but then again, far more comfortable than most beds I have slept on while vacationing in the tropics.
We ate at El Parilla on two different occasions (located to the right just outside the gate), if you go - ask for the waitress Rumi, and just know that the head chef, Yvette, and her husband Frankie, will make you feel like family. The food was great, and the atmosphere was wonderful - our waitress assisted our kids so they could order their puerto rican meal in spanish.
We attempted to take the ferry from Fajardo to Culbera, however, the seas were high and 50mph winds prevented us from making the trip that week. From what I saw however, I would highly recommend getting your tickets in advance, as it was complete chaos and the lines are impossible.
We visited the Carabali Rainforest park to do the horseback riding in the rainforest - horses are very well cared for, enjoyed that experience.
We also visited the rainforest, which the drive itself is much like a carnival rides - for parts of it I just shut my eyes and held on. We hiked on a day in which it was raining, however, we were told the benefit of that is we were not subject to any bugs. It was very crowded and challenging to stay on the trail with the volume of people on the trail that day - often times feeling rushed because you had people directly on your heels at all times. I would highly recommend going at the crack of dawn or later in the day.
We also drove to Ponce' one day, it was a lovely drive, however, we arrived after the ferry left that day for Coffin Island. I have also heard the lighthouse is a lovely area to explore.
The ONLY downside for me on this trip is the amount of sato's (street dogs) we came across - many of which had mange and other injuries. However, we did learn about the Sato Project out of NYC and plan on donating money to this rescue organization. We also found stray cats we fed daily.
The only thing that was a bit dissapointing was the pool area. There were only a handful of chairs, most of which were broken. You had to get down super early just to claim a broken chair. Other than that, it is a great place to stay. We love the area because it's puerto rico unfiltered. No touristy things, which makes your experience a real one. Great local food, rain forest is nearby, private beach coves to visit. Truly our favorite area.
We had a wonderful stay in condo 6003. Very very nice everything to our satisfaction and then more. Thank you so much,Glenda.
I want to share a bit of our experience here at Glenda's property. House is amazing and had everything you need and more ! The apartment is beautiful and the terrace over looking at ocean is just INCREDIBLE. Glenda is super nice and was very patient with me. I probably asked same questions more than once and she answered every time very nicely. We had a great experience ! :)
This was our first visit to Puerto Rico and we decided to stay in 2 different locations. We wish we would have just stayed here the whole time. Loiza itself is not really nice, and when you first drive through you might be second guessing your decision to stay here. Don't! Aquatika is a really nice complex with excellent security. We felt totally safe. Glendas condo is probably situated in one of the best locations. Great view from terrace and right by the hot tub. Short walk to the beach. Condo was decorated very nicely. My only complaint is the master bed and pillows were not the most comfortable, but my kids said their beds were fine. Glenda was really easy to work with. IF we come back to Puerto Rico we will definitely stay here again.
