One of Rincon's Best Kept Secrets

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at Amirage for 10 days in January and March for almost 10 years straight. It's our favorite place in Puerto Rico having experienced many disappointing rentals. I work in the upscale inn and and B & B industry and I am extremely discriminating. The level of cleanliness at Amirage is almost unheard of in PR. The entire property is impeccably kept. We have rented all 3 of the apartments, but prefer Lookout and Rainbow. All have private decks with gorgeous views over Anasco Bay. You can watch the sun rise over the coffee mountains to the east and watch fabulous sunsets to the west. We walk for 3+ miles on the beach every morning. Joy and David are wonderful hosts. They always invite us at least once to parties on the huge lower deck and introduce us to interesting locals, ex pats and other guests. Can't wait to get back!

A private retreat like no other

  • 5 of 5

The location, beautiful ocean views, villa decor and privacy are stellar. So often when traveling one has to put up with noise and crowding. Amirage is the opposite of that. You are directly above your own private beach on your own private balcony, enjoying the beauty of the ocean, while surrounded with flowering plants and trees. The well equipped apartments are comfortable and attractive, with gracious touches. We enjoyed the nearby restaurants and the museum in Ponce, and also just hanging out with a tropical drink on our balcony looking at the stars! I definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Lovely private setting with warm, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Should have written this sooner but my husband and I can't say enough nice things about the views, the serenity, and the gracious hosts. We prefer apartment style living versus a hotel room for vacations. The view from the private balconies is outstanding. You can look down and see fish, turtles etc.

We have stayed in places in Rincon but after listening to boosters, people shouting, and loud music Amirage is the best place to be.

Joy and David are very welcoming and helpful.

The apartments are clean and well maintained.

We recommend it to everyone we know.

Gorgeous and Friendly = Ameriage

  • 5 of 5

In a word, flowers everywhere. Bougainvillea cascading over the deck rails, and down the hill across from the house. Owners Joy and David were determined to make our anniversary trip memorable in every way that they could. They gave us their full attention - and the beautiful "bridal suite" atop the dwelling. My fondest memories are of the silky-soft sea-green sheets on the bed in an airy, sparkling clean room. And a bowl of gorgeous beach glass by the bedside, and Joy's invitation to take what I wanted. I still have a dish of it on my coffee table to bring back memories of our stay.

We spent hours on the deck, watching the sun dance on the water below. Half-tame birds came to the rail to entertain us. Joy feted us with cocktails and food one night, to help us celebrate. This was our second visit to Amirage, and we were amazed at the changes. We could see what a lot of hard work in the few intervening years could accomplish. We can't wait to return.

Unwelcome Guests

  • 2 of 5

A beautiful ocean front property with nice walk in water access. Amirage is really 3 separate apartments above the owner’s home, most of the amenities listed are shared with the Very Watchful live-in owners. When we rented the entire property we thought we would have a Private Home for the week, in fact the owners use the main deck to entertain their personal friends on occasion, limiting our access. Unfortunately we felt as though we were intruding in their space. So here's the GOOD and the BAD:

GOOD

-Beautiful property with spectacular views.

-Excellent water access.

-Each individual Apartment is very nice.

BAD

-Lack of privacy and scrutiny by owners while using the property's shared amenities.

-Hot Tub is old and tired.

-Snorkel Gear and Kayaks require owner’s approval for each use/sign in-sign out.

-Washer/Dryer in owners home and were not available when we asked.

-Neighbor has 2 large Dogs that bark at all hours -day/night. (Not their fault)

Bottom line: This property needs to be advertised as 3 individual Apartments above Live-in owner's home vice a Private Home for rent. If "your idea" of a vacation is consistent with the "property owner's idea" of your vacation it will be a nice stay, otherwise..........be prepared to tip-toe around

Owner's Response: Our Guests Always WELCOME @ AMIRAGE-Mi CASA-SU CASA-Why else would we have so many returning guests? some for 12 yrs! +KEY TO THE CITY OF DORADO FROM PR MAYOR who was enchanted here. Guest review did not mention I had greatly discounted Rate & I paid the 7% PRRm Tax so they afford this vacation for 12. We never use Main Deck to entertain when we have guests except for 1 nite in question, and it happened that it rained for hours that nite so noone could use deck. Our Jacuzzi not new but kept in pristine condition like all of AMIRAGE-On arrival I showed them crystal clear water in Jacuzzi. Next morning I was shocked to find the water to be a muddy brown after their use & area around jacuzzi littered with empty beer cans, plastic cups,soda bottles & more--. I explained we dont have maintenance crew here & asked them to pick up after themselves & asked about Jacuzzi water--Guest co-ordinator was Shouting Rude & stated she would have never stayed here if she knew owner on site. The site they came from doesnt permit our 3 villa layout- Safety & maintenance issues require sign/out of KAYAK, SNORKEL EQUIPMENT which were returned full of sand,no respect for equipment here. Washer & Dryer was available.3 HUGE Holes in table for 6 on 1 villa balcony & other damage caused by children pounding on coconuts trying to open same. Unable to use unsteady, smaller, dark brown table offered for replacement. Many, many big stains on Beach & bath Towel that could not be removed. We keep to ourselves not even seeing some guests for days.,guests have full property use. As an RN my Raison'Detre has always been to help people that I do when I act as Concierge or Wedding planner here(1st in Rincon), keeping Amirage spotless. We surprise & delight Guests by leaving wonderful Fruit,Cheese & Wine baskets as well as coffee + Lots of privacy here. These guests should always rent a pvt house, .beautiful Amirage did not suit their needs-there was nothing I could do to please these people.

Visit the gigantic, exquisitely hand painted Mural on our lower 50 ft deck. It depicts local sea life, which may be seen when snorkeling in front of Amirage and at times, the passage of Humpback Whales. This is one of the many paintings by well known, very talented, local artist, Joyce Gaven to be found at Amirage.

Enjoy a walk thru our indigenous,lovely 760 sq ft tropical, flowered & fountain garden which leads to a sea-side jacuzzi.

Restaurants, shopping, cinemas, bars & pool tables, casinos, beach bars & more are within 10-15 min away.

Free amenities include sea kayaks for 1 or 2, snorkel masks, and other assorted beach toys, lounge chairs & more umbrellas. There is a gas grill and umbrella tables for sea side dining & other dining areas as well .

At 17 ft above the water, our cantilevered deck is available for Happy Hour with Sunset. Bring your camera for memorable photos of an unforgettable get-away, and make your dream a reality at Amirage.
