Archie Arjona purchased this villa in 2011

Why Archie Arjona chose Luquillo

The property is located inside the premises of one of the best resorts in PR where the beach and Hotel facilities are part of the package and the special decor and ambientation of the property will put anyone in the real vacation mode. Also it is far enough to enjoy the tranquility of the El Yunque rain forest, it is only 25 minutes from the airport and 30 to Old San Juan, the quintessential colonial neighborhood with narrow streets paved with slate-blue cobblestones, plazas, colonial mansions, ancient churches, intriguing museums, vivacious restaurant, bars and galleries all enclosed by thick fortress walls.

Spanish is the official language but almost anyone speaks English fluently and US dollar is the local currency.

What makes this villa unique

It is inside the premises of The Rio Mar Country Club You can use the Community Club pool and beach access with free parking for guests. Or take the shuttle to hotel facilities like the restaurants, lounges and casino with live music during weekends. Hotel rules and hours of operation most be followed.

Great experience with teenage kids

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this great villa with 4 teenagers (two girls 19 and 18 and two boys both 14). We had a great time. The kids loved their bunk room with own tv and hanging out area as well as balcony. I loved my expansive master suite. The kitchen was well equipped..there is ample shopping nearby (Walgreens everywhere which had more grocery items than in US and reasonably priced). Was nice to have breakfast and snacks/drinks in villa. Loved driving to the owners beach and walking beach each morning (walk past Wyndham to Rio Grande...beautiful views). Kids enjoyed gym and pools at Wyndham. Villa has some beach toys and boogie boards to use which was very nice. Recommended activities: HIke El Yunque (weekday to avoid crowds; eat lunch at La Muralla in park; study map/website before you go to map out your hike...park is huge and you actually drive to various hiking spots); visit Old San Juan (weekday to avoid crowds); book reservation for Para Naturaleza tour (in advance), night kayak bio bay Fajardo/Las Croabas. PIckup breakfast foods at La Familia Bakery 2. Eat at Richies (they will come pick you up), Don Pepes. Laundry bit of a pain at villa since community laundry room only had one working dryer. Also may want to bring beach towels because villa only had two.

Great condo located close to the golf course.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, well stocked and close too the golf course and the ocean. Having the guest passes was a wonderful benefit and we used the hotel pool everyday and enjoyed a massage at the spa. The beds were very comfy and the shuttle to the hotel is just a short walk from the condo. Overall the whole experience was awesome and we had a wonderful time. I would definitely rent the condo again. Archie was an great host.

Perfect for family vacation holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Puerto Rico and staying at this villa. The villa was very nice and comfortable for our family. Our children had room in their own creative style suite with the two triple bunk beds and seating area with cable TV. Our master suite was very nice too and a place we could relax to. We used the full kitchen to cook breakfasts, prepare picnic lunches, and enjoy several dinners. The villa has separate beach access and a pool area near the main resort. The villa also came with access to the Wyndham Rio Mar Resort, which was very nice. We took the shuttle van from the golf course club house down to the resort or we also drove our rental van down to the resort and parked near the villa pool. We had the best time relaxing on the beach, using the pools, exploring the sights around Puerto Rico, and spending a great vacation as a family. The villa owners were very helpful with our questions. We met the owners as we were checking out and it was very nice to talk to them. We would gladly stay here again and recommend this to anyone visiting Puerto Rico.

We would book this villa again for our vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very nice and answered any questions we had. They met us at the villa which was nice aswell! The villa was very clean and roomy for my family of 6. It was great that there was a shuttle that would take you to and from the resort allday!! We also enjoyed the fact that we also has a private beach and pool to go to aswell! We honestly enjoyed that beach more so then the resort beach!!! It wasn't crowded at all.... It was like it was our own private island!!!! It was fantastic!! My only negative to the property was my youngest son woke up two nights in a row with spider bites! So maybe it needs some kind of bug repellent. Other then that, we would definitely book this villa again!

Beautiful Villa, Great Owner and Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter Archie's villa located on the beautiful Wyndham Rio Mar Property about 30 - 35 minutes from San Juan, you feel like you are home.

The home is beautifully decorated and comes with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. With 2 adults and 2 children (12&15) in the villa, it was more space than we needed. The bunk beds are so comfortable, I slept in one for the entire trip and gave my wife the huge King bed in the Master Bed Room. The rooms are larger than the photos show and the place is super spotless.

Even though it can get very hot in PR, the villa has air conditioners in every room which cool all the rooms in minutes. We visited a local supermarket on our first day and used the kitchen every morning for breakfast. This saved us a ton of money.

We used the passes Archie provides and had a blast at the hotel beach and pool. One day we used the Owners pool and beach access, where it was much more relaxing. The villa even has boogie boards which the kids used to ride some awesome waves.

At the end of our trip, we used the washing and drying machines located a few steps from the villa and did all our laundry before heading home. Coming home with no laundry is a huge time saver.

While there, eat at the local kiosks in Luquillo (trust me, they are really good) on Rt 3, go horseback riding at the Hacienda Carabali (http://www.carabalirainforestpark.com/horsebackriding.php) and definitely, definitely learn to surf with Briand and Eric at La Pared in Luquillo Beach (http://www.kayakingpuertorico.com/pages/surfing-lessons.html).

If you are thinking of visiting PR or the Rio Mar area, don't waste your money and stay at the hotel. For about the same or even less money, you can have your own villa with all the benefits of home.

I highly recommend this property and we all can’t wait to come back!

Excellent location, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

This villa is the ideal vacation destination for a family. We traveled to PR with our two young children and this villa had everything we needed - kitchen, two bathrooms, bunk beds, great location, access to all amenities at the Wyndham resort. Archie was an exceptional host - we had a small issue with the A/C when we arrived and within 24 hours he had a repairman come to replace the entire unit. I cannot say enough about our experience at Archie's villa. We are already dreaming about our return visit.
