About Dulce Abreu & Alberto Soto

We are beach lovers and fell in love with this tranquil beach and excellent location. We live in San Juan but frequently stay in this apartment during the weekends.

Dulce Abreu & Alberto Soto purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Dulce Abreu & Alberto Soto chose Puerto Rico

This residential building has only 5 apartments per floor. Not crowded like many others in the area. We fell in love with the views from the balcony. The perfect place to take your morning coffee or your glass of wine. The sound of the waves is so relaxing. And most of all it's right in front of a wonderful beach suitable for all ages.

What makes this apartment unique

Kayaks, parasailing, windsailing, chairs, cabanas and tent rentals available next to our building, food vendors right on the beach. We are next to one of the most prestigious hotels in Isla Verde so there's security all the time and the beach ambiance is very nice.

Enjoyed every minute

  • 5 of 5

I do not typically write reviews, but this villa worked out so well that it totally warrants one.

We have stayed in this area of San Juan for the last few years and we were pleased with all aspects of the location, accommodations, amenities, and sounds that this condo offers. The balcony is the best--large with a great view. Most importantly, Dulce was so helpful pre visit and during our time there--helped us work out a couple of kinks quickly. She proved to be a great owner. Loved having an assigned car spot but we found ourselves walking most places. Like us you will not want to leave. Thank you Dulce for making our stay so enjoyable. We will definitely be back!!!

Live on the balcony

  • 5 of 5

When not on the beach, you can live on the balcony of this lovely condo.

There is a refreshing and constant breeze and no bugs, so we kept the balcony doors open and never turned on the AC. The kitchen is well equipped, so plan on shopping at the nearby grocery store or order pizza and dine outside!

Thank you for a wonderful stay,

Roy and Joanne, Nova Scotia, Canada

Wonderful place!

  • 4 of 5

We have an absolutely lovely week in Isla Verde and at the Reina del Mar! The weather was cranky but we enjoyed the

terrific long stretches of beach and listening to the sound of the surf from the balcony. Just beautiful!

There was a lot of construction noise which added an unpleasant note. We also wished that there was a better supermarket

nearby so that we could have picked up some fresh fruits and vegetables. However, people all around were so polite

and pleasant that it more than made up for it.

Dulce was a lovely host who responded quickly to questions texted to her. Thanks, Dulce! You were terrific!

Comfy condo with great Isla Verde beach front location

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property. Perfect space for our family of four - separate beds for our daughters and enough seating inside and on the balcony. Great breezes off the ocean but appreciated the air conditioners in the bedrooms for quieter sleeping.

Condo is comfortably equipped and nicely decorated. We particularly loved hanging out at the balcony table overlooking the ocean and opening up the sliding doors to hear the waves in the mornings. Beach gets pretty loud and busy on the weekends, but it is huge so still easy to find a spot and winds down with the sunset.

We also appreciated having the beach chairs, the outside faucet to hose off before coming inside, and the dedicated parking spot. Street parking would be a problem as any spots are quickly taken by other beach goers. The immediate city-side neighborhood is not much to look at but there are some decent restaurants only a couple of blocks away plus a full sized grocery store (Pueblo)

Main entrance is currently under construction so getting in and out of the building is only through the back locked gate by the small pool. This also made it a little tricky on arrival, since the building name and address are covered. But the unit's caretaker contact was nice enough to be already waiting for us when we arrived and quickly recognized us as we started looking around the construction tape and signs with confusion.

Short drive in to old San Juan from the condo and easy parking in the big parking garages at the west end.

All in all, we had a great time and would recommend this condo as a good San Juan home base.
