It is located only three minutes away from the beach, inside a gated community in the Rio Mar complex with its own amenities including a pool, BBQ and visitor parking. It is at the highest point in that community so you get an awesome view of the golf course, hotel and beach with no buildings in the way to block the stunning view and the cross ventilation that fills the villa with a refreshing sea breeze, you will want to open up all the windows, look out and relax.

You can benefit from a modern fully equipped 2 bedroom and 2.5 bath villa with it's own BBQ on the front porch and a chest full of pool and beach equipment. Also included is the golf cart, a great way to move around the Rio Mar complex without having to pay for parking at the hotel. Also, we are now working with a 3rd party to offer a concierge service to all our guests at no extra charge.

You will be staying inside the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach & Spa Resort property. A 500 acre fenced and secure refuge that offers: 2 miles of beach; two 18-hole championship golf courses; 13 tennis courts; 11 different restaurants & lounges; a thrilling full service casino; relax, refresh, rejuvenate at the Mandara spa; and more.

At only 5 minutes from our Villa is El Yunque Rainforest & Carabalí Rainforest Park.

About Francisco Cordero

I'm a business man in San Juan, Puerto Rico for over 30 years.

Francisco Cordero purchased this villa in 2010

Why Francisco Cordero chose Rio Grande

This villa has been in my family for over twenty years, it originally belonged to my dad and I purchased it after he passed away. It was recently remodeled and fully stocked with high end appliances, furniture & equipment to bring all the comforts of home to this little piece of paradise. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed it for all those years.

What makes this villa unique

This villa sits at a hill top, it is at the highest point in that community so you get an awesome view of the golf course, hotel and beach with no buildings in the way to block the stunning view and the cross ventilation that fills the villa with a refreshing sea breeze, when I go I always open up all the windows, open a bottle of wine and relax.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect choice for us! Great space with amazing view of the mountains and the ocean. The golf cart was a huge plus. Our kids had tons of fun! We would love to stay at Francisco's villa again.

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

The condo was renovated quite well. Tons of kitchen supplies which was great for us. Our kids loved going around in the golf cart. Very big refrigerator. The view is great here. The mattress in the master was hard. The second bedroom was awkward getting in and out of with the bed out. Other than that we loved it. The pools are nice, the beach club was great. There are a couple of playgrounds for the kids. While this condo is inside of the gated area that is Wyndham, it is not part of that resort so all you get to do there is spend money at restaurants or the casino. I was a little disappointed with that at first but we visited old San Juan and the rainforest so we really didn't have time to enjoy the resort anyway.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful holiday at Francisco's condo. It had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The golf cart came in handy but we also walked to the beach and pool for exercise. Having access to the Wyndham Hotel was great too. We ate at the Kiosks in Loquillo on 3 different occasions. Once at Edelweiss and twice at Revolution Pizza. We hiked the rain forest, visited Old San Juan , played tennis and golf.There is so much to do in the area. The view from Ritchie's Cafe is beautiful. Thank you Francisco for having everything ready for us. Our stay was fabulous. We hated to leave as we felt so comfortable and right at home in the condo.

The good and the not so good

  • 3 of 5

Faboulous one bedroom condo. Not so good two bedroom condo. The second bedroom has a full sized sofa bed (they call it a Murphy bed but the dent in may back begs to differ), and the only window is in the bathroom over the toilet. I consider it a very nice closet. The rest of the condo is lovely as is the resort. Ocean and pools great. Restaurants so-so. Staff friendly. Golf expensive. Tennis good.

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Many of my opinions are the same as others who enjoyed staying at Francisco place. Beautiful property, modern yet homey, spacious, stellar balcony view. Didnt meet Francisco in person but he's down to earth, charming, very friendly guy who is great about communication. If deciding to stay here, 2 things i would personally recommend. If your taller than 5'11, its difficult to sleep comfortably in 2nd bed room due the mattress size. The couch in living room was the perfect substitute. Also, have small towels handy for activities like bathing or washing your face. There's enough large towels available, there is also a washer and dryer which came in great handy. Ill definitely refer friends, family and random folk I encounter providing the subject comes up in conversation. BTW, thanks Fabulous Francisco.....for being so kool! Very much appreciated.

Love at First Sight!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we saw the pictures of the villa it was love at first sight and we decided to book our stay. As soon as we arrived it was even better than the pictures! Amazing villa with all you need and a breath taking view and breeze. The VIP passes let us use the hotel pool and towels and it was a must because the hotel security was strict! Without the VIP passes we would not have been able to use the hotel ameneties. Also, the golf cart gave us access to travel throughout the entire Rio Mar resort! Wich was fun and efficient!!! Thank you so much! we LOVED it and will be staying here in a future occacion!!
