Why Angela Schlump chose Rio Grande

We have lived in Puerto Rico for more than 50 years. Our children and many grandchildren love to vacation here in PR. So we purchased this villa so that our children and grandchildren would always have an ocean front vacation home to enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

We love taking long walks on the beach and around the resort. Our villa is very close to the main hotel --restaurants,shops, casino, tour desk,basrs,music.

2 Golf Clubs and 4 tennis courts available for nominal fee.

Our private parking in garage in our building and 2nd outdoor one.

We have free wifi and ethernet connection,3 t/v's,3 a/c's brand new refrigerator ,surf boards, sand toys and more!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our young family of five. The condo is larger than the photos suggest (approx 1500 sq ft). Beautiful views off the two large balconies. The main balcony was plenty large for our family to eat outside. East facing windows are great for morning coffee and sunrise. Blackout curtains making sleeping in an option instead. Air conditioning worked perfectly (BTW there is a button on the remote to turn off the bright LED display on the AC units). Kitchen had all the basics we needed including a blender for Pina Coladas! Grounds are well kept and pools are clean. We only spent one night at the resort. They do a movie night on the lawn next to "5 o'clock somewhere" so you can enjoy dinner and drinks while the kids watch a movie. Nothing special about the food, but can't beat the convenience. Speaking of food, there are two restauraunts at the end of the resort road/main road intersection that were really good. Dos Panzas was good mexican food with great (unique) margaritas. Don Pepes was right next door for puerto rican food. While it is not cheap, the mofongo was very good. Nice atmosphere with plenty of locals. Luquillo kiosks are a good experience overall (the one we picked Rustic Beach was generally average, but had amazing coconut rice). BTW if you have small children, there is a pizza place on the road to El Yunque (left side of the road, about 10 min from condo) that has basic fresh pizza for about 12$ with picnic tables next to a creek. Good place for a cheap meal where you can let the kids roam and catch lizards. Big hit with our kids.

Beautiful Resort and our condo was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Villa's in Puerto Rico March 6-11, 2017.

The condo was positioned very nicely within the resort grounds and our view off the balcony was perfect... the ocean was so close and the breezes were enjoyed everyday!

Our weather wasn't perfect, but because we stayed at such a nice place it didn't matter much. The beds were very comfortable and the condo was very clean and nicely decorated.

We appreciated the use of the beach towels on hand and the boogie boards provided fun in the water. The hot tub came in handy. The infinity pool was something new for us and that was cool. The rain forest provided two days of hiking and waterfall fun ... we also did the rope swing!

We hope to return in the future.

Happy traveler from the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for a week. First time my family has ever vacationed for a week and wished we had longer to stay. I was a little worried about the villa being on the first floor because I prefer staying higher for a better view. Boy am I glad I didnt let that keep me from booking. The view was breath taking from this villa!!! It is conveniently located to the elevator and the parking garage. You can not go wrong booking this property. Best vacation ever period!!

Angela's Ocean Villa was terrific!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 rented Angela's ocean villa for a week the end of March 2016 & it was perfect! Multiple friends rented other villas for their families in the same complex (one was right next door). We all had such a great time, none of us wanted to leave! The layout of the villa was nice--our kids loved having their own space (2 bed/bath unit) connected via adjoining door to the parent space (kitchen/living room/master bedroom/bathroom unit). This was a senior trip for some of our 18-year old kids--who had a great time (some would've liked more people their own age around the area than there was, so it was good that we went with a group of families). The kids were able to have some freedom from parents (coming/going to the Wyndham Resort bar/pool/casino & playing on the beach nearby). It's a safe environment within a gated-community and we often saw the presence of Ocean Villa Security so that worked well for the parents too. The adults went over to the Wyndham Hotel Pool/Bar a couple of times, but honestly preferred the calmer atmosphere of the 2 pools at Ocean Villas (if you bring drinks to the pool, bring cans or cups--NO GLASS). At times we felt like we had the place to ourselves--until it got closer to Holy Week, then the place was at max capacity! As the place got busier, security required everyone to wear green wristbands. Puerto Rico is BEAUTIFUL and there is so much to do and see--Zip-lining; hiking in the nearby El Yunque rainforest; exploring/shopping in Old San Juan; touring the forts in Old San Juan (go early); snorkeling catamaran trips & bio-bay night kayaking. Rest assured that Angela's villa is equipped with everything you need--plenty of bath/beach towels, sheets, beach toys, kitchen essentials, washer/dryer, air conditioning (not all villas there have AC or washer/dryer). We also had underground parking 1 level below the villa with an elevator nearby (nice plus to have the grocery carts there for loading/unloading). I would recommend stopping at Costco on your way to the villa from the airport. One recommendation I would give is for Angela to put some sort of lock-box outside the doors or possibly offer guests 4 keys. We only received 2 keys. Some days we were all going in different directions and it would've been nice to be able to leave a key in a lock-box for any of us to get in/out of the villa. A big thanks to Angela for taking such great care of us and for all the great family memories!

Property was very well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Visited for a long weekend and greatly enjoyed being on the beach and near (but not in) the Wyndham Hotel with restaurants, shops, casino, etc. when we wanted to use them. The unit itself was well-maintained and very nicely furnished, and owner and on-site manager were fully responsive. Would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
