Carlos Rodriguez purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Carlos Rodriguez chose Rio Grande
Our villa has a perfect location in the resort. It is in front of the River Golf Course with excellent views, close to the beach, the rainforest and many adventurous places including the forest, bioluminescent bay, horseback-riding and four tracks rides. You can enjoy restaurants, bar and the casino at the Wyndham resort. Also, enjoy our very charming and warm place sitting at the porch with a good book and a glass of wine. Our golf cart can also be included as part of the rental.
What makes this Villa unique
The great views, the fresh breeze, its open space and its proximity to great places to have fun. Both baths fully renovate early this year.

Lovely, relaxing and adventurous family vacation
We had an amazing week for our first time in PR with our 6 and 7 year olds. The condo is great, has everything you need. Air conditioning in bedrooms was soothing, although hardly needed, weather was gorgeous every day and lulling rain almost every night. Sunrises over the golf course and ocean view are beautiful every morning. We loved Cluster II pool. Met lots of nice people. And the golf cart rides every afternoon to the beach club were a favorite of our kids. The beach is clean, beautiful, ocean is clear, very easy to swim and walk for miles. Condo was well stocked. Easter weekend was bustling. Lots of nice families, yummy poolside food at the club. We ventured out every morning to explore the island. We visited old San Juan, El Morro fort, Cueva Ventana (window cave), El Yunque, ATV tour in Carabali adventure Park, Loquillo beach, Vega Baja beach, and a night time motor boat trip to the bioluminescent Bay in Fajardo with BioIsland Tours. All amazing, safe, easy to get to, friendly people. We ate yummy pineapple and shrimp rice right down the street at Antojitos which is next to outdoor $5 salsa lessons every Wed and Fri evenings, and Ritchie's cafe also right up the hill with an incredible view. We loved Lluvia cafe Puertorican bakery, and pandaria bakery for quick eats and truly delicious food, 5-10 min drive. We ate one meal at Coastal Roots at the Wyndham hotel, got there on the golf cart, and it was yummy but overpriced. The spa and massage were well worth it though! La Parilla in Loquillo was a great restaurant but El Pescador in Fajardo by the biobay launch area was our absolute favorite. And there is a cute playground right there. We can't wait to go back!
Very comfortable for 6 adults, great location
Minutes from beautiful beaches, swimming pools and two golf courses. 45 min from San Juan, 15 minutes from the Rain Forest and 30 minutes from the beautiful bioluminescent bay! Carlos was very responsive, even set up dinner reservations for us! No problem using the hotel pools, gym beach etc but happy with villa beach 2 min golf cart away! Loved the villa - glad we choose it over the hotel!
Spacious and clean
This villa has a beautiful view to the golf course and the beach was only two minutes away. We had a wonderful time. The villa was spacious, the beds were comfortable and it had everything we needed. The owner was very service oriented. We will definitely return.
This is a beautiful home overlooking the golf course. The communication was great between myself and Carlos. We will definitely rent this villa again the next time we visit Puerto Rico!! Thank you Carlos!
Can't Wait to Return--March 2015
Carlos' villa was everything it was advertised to be. If we return to Puerto Rico, we'd love to stay there again. It was a spectacular vacation-from the hotel grounds, to the villa itself, the perfect weather, the warm ocean water, the activities that are a short drive from the Wyndham. Thank you Carlos!!
Great stay last Feb 2015
Here is info about the Wyndham complex, since Carlos' villa has already been reviewed and is beautiful : this is a huge complex in the eastern coast of PR. You will need a car to drive the easy 45' from the airport to get here. Within the complex there are separate "clusters" of villas, this one is in "cluster II" and to get there you need to get past the complex security an then the cluster security, we felt very safe at all times. The cluster has its own pool that you can see in the pictures and its own (a little run down) playground, both easily walkable from the villa. To get to the beach or the hotel you could walk, but there are no sidewalks so we drove Carlos' golf cart or the car to get to the beach or to the hotel facilities. There is another pool just next to the beach that belongs to the cluster. The pools are nice but not as nice as the one in the hotel. The beach is small, the water in turquoise and warm, the sand is brown in color, not your beautiful white sand beach. there are no umbrellas but you can get shade from the palm trees, and there's free beach chairs. The hotel facilities are within the complex, about 10' drive from the villa. We had no issue at all using the hotel pool or beach, there was nobody asking for credentials. The hotel pool is nicer, and has a kiddie pool, although the water was not very warm. There is another playground next to the hotel pool, and a Tiki bar that sales beer and cocktails made out of boxed juice instead of actual fruit (go figure), there is another poolside restaurant that serves decent but not very sophisticated food. The hotel beach is, in my opinion, a little nicer than the cluster's beach, and there are some more activities, like jet-ski rental. The hotel itself looks ok, a little run down, it could use a face lift. Of all the restaurants listed, the only 2 that were open for dinner were Marbella which is a very expensive buffet with mediocre food, and Shimas which serves puerto rican-asian fusion food and it was better. the hotel also has a small casino, and a couple bars. If you drive your car to the hotel you will have to leave it in the parking lot which cost a little more than $3 per/h. We typically used the golf cart which is free, and can be either parked at the garage, or next to the playground which is closer to the hotel beach and pool. If you like to play golf this place is paradise, the golf courts are dreamy and you have a great view from Carlos' home. We took golf lessons.
