About Rocco Lamanna

Live in Saratoga Springs NY with my wife Becky and two children. Love to travel and love PR.

Rocco Lamanna purchased this condo in 2005

Why Rocco Lamanna chose Luquillo

PR is the best island in the Caribbean, the people are fantastic. It is great to have a place with so much history and adventure. It is not like a resort island where once you leave the gated complex you are stepping into a 3rd world country. PR is great, where in the world can you go to a tropical island, spend the morning by the Caribbean waters, go hiking in a rain forest then go to cold stone ice cream for dessert. It is the best of both worlds, modern conveniences with old world charm.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rocco,

We returned to NY yesterday from a fantastic ten day vacation in your wonderful Luquillo apartment. Everything was so lovely, as always, the constant soothing ocean breezes, the gorgeous views. Thanks you so much for renting us this apartment, which we have come to love and look forward to returning to each year.

ABSOLUTELY WILL BE BACK!

  • 5 out of 5
If you travel like a tourist - needing to be pampered, having someone immediately available for your every whim, bed made for you every day – this is not your spot. But if you really want to EXPERIENCE Puerto Rico in all its wonder, call Rocco ASAP! We booked a week+1 –- 4 days honeymoon, 4 days family vacation with the kids. It was AWESOME!!!
I want to see what the locals see, I want to eat where they eat, I want to do what they do. Sandy Hills offers exactly that and more. It has postcard perfect views, but it is incongruously dropped in a homey little neighborhood just off Hwy 3. Other reviews call it rundown or “bad” even, but apparently those people didn’t actually go out into the neighborhood. The people were so friendly! Everyone greeted us warmly as we strolled around and was very helpful, especially since my husband speaks no Spanish and mine is limited Mexican Spanish. If you don’t walk the neighborhood, you miss out on little gems like Ernestina’s chuletas, William’s chorizo pizza and Aroma’s crepes. They were all great, but the best food we had, hands down, was from the neighbor’s stand on the corner right outside the security gate. OMG!! Home cooking at its best!
Having a full kitchen in the condo was a godsend. We bought fresh fish in Ceiba (30min east) and veggies at the market, as well as breakfast food to keep on hand. By not buying food out every meal, we saved a ton of money and calories. The food is amazing, but so rich and fried… And vegetables are scarce!
The only drawback: Thunderstorms + No Window Screens = 30 mosquito bites for me. The heavy wind through the living room kept us safe there, but the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms were warzones! It was too stuffy to close the windows, but AC’s give me and my daughter headaches. We bought Off! spray and portable fan, as well as citronella bracelets, to no avail. It wasn’t until we got the Raid Coils did we really see a difference.
Thank you, Rocco, for choosing such a perfect spot to have a vacation rental! And thank you for allowing us the opportunity to truly enjoy the real Puerto Rico!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mrs Brown for your review. It had been a pleasure having you and your family as guests. I am glad to only be a phone call away to help enhance your vacation and your stay. So glad you got to see Luquillo and Puerto Rico like it should.
I also never thought about screen for renters since the A/c is used so much. I am heading to the island in a few weeks and will get a set for all the windows. Thanks for sharing and look forward to your return trip. By the way all return renters receive a 20% discount.
All the best.

A view with not much else.

  • 3 out of 5
This condo has a great view but has terrible accommodations. With a very uncomfortable bed, broken drawers, lack of towels and wash clothes it leaves more than a little comfort to be desired. Unless you are a college student with low comfort sleeping standards, I recommend looking elsewhere.

Owner's Response: These reviews are very unfortunate and quite frankly out of left field at times. Yes a dresser draw was broken from the previous weeks rentor and it was fixed the next day. We also sent over new linens, towels and washcloths AND my property manager (who's office is less than a mile away) personally inspected the apartment to address any concerns. I was told by the renters "I appreciate your response, I think it will all be fine", then they simply left the apartment and left this review. All I ask is that you read my other reviews and also other condo reviews on Luquillo. There are always a few bad ones in the bunch that simply do not justify 20 positive ones. My website photos are always up to date as of this rental year so please take a look for yourself. As for the bedding, I have had over 100 rentals and this is the first time I have heard about the this. They are the same mattresses I use at home and had them delivered from 1-800 mattress in 2009. Please e-mail me directly if you have any further concerns on this review.
Thanks,
Rocco

From AZ. Traveling as a family of 6.

  • 5 out of 5
The stay was wonderful. The balcony is perfect and really is the opportunity to take in the beauty of the island beach. Little trick: When the front door and sliding door are open at the same time the breeze is amazing.
The apartment is quaint, clean, and the fully equipped kitchen is a benefit when traveling with a family. We cooked a full breakfast every morning before heading out. Tip: Follow Rocco's direction to get to the location. The drive to San Juan for water activities is about 20-25 min. The rain forest is about 15 min.
away. For a mini grocery trip there is a Wal-Mart which is about 10 min up the road.
What was important for me: Good communication with the owner, WIFI, safe/clean place to stay, and a local store for items that are not necessary to cram in a luggage.
Each of my of concerns were met. Rocco was truly a text away. That is a peace of mind when traveling in general. Thank you Rocco.

gorgeous view

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed here recently and were generally pleased with the condo, which was in a nice building, and had an amazing view. We enjoyed the balcony especially. The owner was very easy to speak with and answered all of our questions. The condo was difficult to find, you can see it from far away, but hard to get to- due to all of the one way streets, many of which are not marked. By the second day, we figured out how to get around. Fortunately my daughter speaks spanish, as the security guard when we checked in did not speak a word of English!
The only negatives were that the bedroom windows did not seem to lock (scary since a tenant in the building advised us to lock the windows at night- even on the 3rd floor), there is no dishwasher, few towels, a noisy a/c, and the pool closes early at 6. Please also know that you should not swim on the beach at the condo due to rough surf - you can swim a short distance away.
While there we visited the rainforest and old san juan, and had a surfing lesson (unfortunately my daughter was injured during the lesson and had to go the hospital). Despite this fiasco, we had a nice time and it was a good experience. I do agree with some other reviews about the restaurant situation. We cooked at the condo, but did not eat in Luquillo (some of the restaurants were in shacks (literally). We ate out a nice meal in old san juan.
Overall, I think it was a nice place for the price charged.

Great views of the ocean!

  • 4 out of 5
This condo had great views of the ocean! The owner (Rocco) was wonderful to work with! We had a few set backs and he took care of them immediately. We were impressed on how fast he would respond to us and take care of anything that we needed during our stay! We were very happy with our stay. As far as the condo itself its a little dated and needs a few updates but looking around the area we were in, it was like staying at a five star Hotel. We would not hesitate to stay there again!
