|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Come visit this Tropical Paradise! Located in Fajardo, Puerto Rico--only 45 minutes East of San Juan and with access to the world famous El Conquistador Resort Country Club Hotel & Casino.
Enjoy some of the world's most renowned beaches, scuba diving, fishing and golf. Travel to the El Yunque Rainforest, Bioluminescent Bay, St. Thomas or nearby islands. If you prefer, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Caribbean on your private balcony or king size bed. Shop and dine at the variety of shops and restaurants in the area to choose from.
However, I can only give the condo a 3-star rating.
Over the past several years, I have probably rented from VRBO at least a dozen times. This condo, much like others, could use a real good cleaning....But this condo has the record for being the most poorly stocked. There was no hand soap, decent beach chairs, etc. The kitchen was equipped with an assortment of old miss-matched dishes and silverware. No bedside tables or coffee table. The refrigerator did not have an automatic icemaker and there were only 2 ice trays in the freezer. Not even one pack of coffee for the renters. Some travelers get in rather late and being able to make a pot of coffee in the morning would be nice.
The balcony faces east and unless you want to fry, you really can't sit out there until very late in the day. But, you can see the ocean from the sofa. The pool is decent, but in full sun so best to take a dip late in the day.
The ceiling fan was useless as it did not move any air. But the AC unit is very new, works well and reasonably quiet. We would have liked to sleep with the sliding doors open but there were no screens and mosquitoes can be a problem (we didn't want to take the risk).
The good things....We enjoyed being close to Las Croabus... there was always a number of vendors set up in the park selling food, craft items, etc. A number of decent restaurants to choose from. The bio bay tours (in kayaks) go out most nights and are fun to watch. THE VIEW! The bed and sofa were comfortable.
This is not a bad unit to rent for 2 people if you do not plan on doing any actual cooking. We enjoyed our stay, and left the condo better stocked with the following additional items: 3 more ice trays, a medium size igloo cooler (which we also used as a coffee table/footstool), a small quantity of plastic hangers, coffee and filters, handsoap, beer, soda and water and 2 full size foldable beach chairs.
We enjoyed our stay at Caribbean Oveanfront Paradise. It was clean and just wat we needed. The view was breathtaking! We loved having our breakfast an dinner on the balcony. We would love to stay here again sometime in the near future.
Perfect vacation rental for staying with a 2-year old. Great view. The pool was nice and it was great to have my own kitchen and walk to Las Croabas for dinner. Thanks Raul!
Nice condo, clean and comfortable. Close to everything, and very helpful owner. We had a great time!
What can I say. Raul was so helpful from the time before we booked, to the time we checked out. He is able to answer any questions you have about the condo and the area very promptly. He was very kind. We loved the condo, everything about it. It was just right for everything we needed. Loved waking up to the sound of the ocean. We were able to find the place in the dark the first night we got there....the directions were perfect. The bed was comfortable, and I loved that there was a full size fridge and stove. Everything you needed to save money on meals. =) Raul even recommended a place to shop for groceries before making our way through fajardo to the condo. Now my only wish is that this actually could sleep 5, because without a doubt, my husband and I would come back and bring our three young children. =) You are close enough to the docks to catch a ferry over to Culebra (which I would HIGHLY recommend). Thank you Raul for letting us rent your condo. We will surely be back!!!! =)
Property used to belong to El Conquistador Resort next door, nice basic hotel room with kitchenette, balcony overlooking ocean. There is no beach within walking distance, must ride 5 mins, then find the locals have camped out all along rocky/seaweedy bottom beach.
Bed was comfortable, room was clean. Laundry in garage area (24 hr friendly guard present) requires tokens you can buy in machine, buy your own detergent in a store. We had a pool to cool off in, watched the local boat traffic on the coast and in marina at EC, watched local fishermen fishing off rocks. Local restaurants around Parque Las Croabas just before property don't offer much, we tried them once each, then ate out on day trips in SJ etc. or cooked on convenient grill on balcony. Can walk to Find a grocery store for basics and lunches/drinks. Property is 15 min ride to ferries to Culebra and Vieques, get your tix early ($2.50 ea) in morning day before you want to go, worth the trip. We snorkeled on Culebra on our own and saved a ton of $ by just getting a shuttle van $3 ea way p/p at ferry drop off.
Would definitely recommend as a no frills place to hang your hat. Less than an hour from SJ, 1/2 hr from El Yunque, 2 1/2 hrs from Aricebo Observatory (great day trip).
Raul was great about keeping in communication before and during the stay. He tried to help with wifi, but we were unable to connect in room, so we went to Wyndham Hotel for lunch and logged on a couple of times. He gave us good directions from SJ, then we found our way around on our own the 2nd day.
