About Arlene Morales-Negrón

We are both 'puertorriqueños,' born and raised. Reinaldo from the capital and Arlene from the south of the island. We meet while working on a big project in Puerto Rico, and 11 years later, we still together, enjoying everything we do. We love to travel, taste new restaurants, have a good cup of coffee, spend time with our families and good friends.

Arlene Morales-Negrón purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Arlene Morales-Negrón chose Rio Grande

We were looking for a beachfront property were we can relax on the weekends from our stressful jobs, and not far from our home. A place to enjoy, reflect, and a have a little bit of paradise within the big paradise of Puerto Rico, all year long. We have enjoyed every step of it, the furnishing, decorations, and much more..is an on going project, so we have something added to it every know and then.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the apartment has the benefit of being in front of the beach, and at the same time, have a little forest at one side. It's like having two great locations in one. Also, it reminds me of my childhood years at the beach.

Loved our Rio Grande condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Puerto Rico, so when we booked a condo, we were really unsure of the perfect location. We chose Rio Grande because of its proximity to San Juan (about 35 minutes away), Fajardo (also about 35 minutes away), and El Yunque (about 15 minutes away). It worked out to be a great location, despite the relative lack of dining options in the area.

We loved being a bit "away from it all", and the condo itself was very nice. It was clean, well-appointed, and had a nice view of the ocean from the balcony. We found security to be helpful and friendly. It was a joy to sleep with the windows open listening to the sound of the waves hitting the shore.

We found the beach to be beautiful! The pool area was very nice, although the pool chairs were a bit uncomfortable. We were surprised that we were one of the only occupied units in the complex during the week of our stay, but it picked up a little bit on the weekend.

All in all, the weather was perfect, the location was beautiful, and the condo was one that we would definitely consider renting again!

P.S. Some must-do things if you do go to PR: El Yunque is gorgeous; the Ecotours bioluminescent bay tour is fantastic; lunch in the Guavate area is a must, if you love smoked meats like pork, chicken, and turkey, and the live salsa bands on the weekend are so much fun! Finally, Saturday night in the area of Santurce near the 100 year-old farmers market was a wonderful mix of restaurants, bars, and live music everywhere! It was a fantastic time.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great and exactly what we were looking for. The unit was very clean and felt just like home. Our 8 month old son enjoyed the pool and would fall asleep when we walked on the beach :). The owners are very responsive and ensured our stay went well. This was our first time staying at a non-hotel property for vacation and it couldn't have gone any better.

Highly recommend!

Beautiful, quiet condominium

  • 5 of 5

The condominium is exactly as stated online. It is modern, clean and quiet. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you could need. When we stayed, there was hardly anyone else there and we had the pool and beach all to ourselves. You definitely need a car as it is a little isolated. It takes about 5-10 minutes to get into Rio Grande area where shops/stores are located. About 30-45 minute drive minute to San Juan depending on traffic. The owner Arlene was absolutely wonderful and was a great source of information about the area even before we arrived. She even got us maps of the area and information on El Yunque which was very helpful. If you are looking for a quiet vacation spot in PR without the crowds, then you could not do better!

Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This location was amazing! The pictures don't lie. Everything was as I expected, and much more. My family is from Puerto Rico originally and when we visit, we usually like to try different hotels. This time, we chose to rent houses instead. This house was very centrally located. The beach was wonderful! The house was very clean and the owners did a great job to make sure everything went smoothly. I was very impressed with our stay. I would definitely recommend this apartment to family and friends and I would even stay there again. I give this apartment two thumbs up!! :)

Excellent way to stay away from home

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and very well apportioned. There were even things for fun such as, a body board, beach chairs, a cabana, and games. The owners were very nice and helpful when we had questions about the area. The area was quiet when we were there. So, if you are looking for a party atmosphere, this isn't the place at that time of year. It was excellent for relaxing, quiet beach time and planing your next day's adventure! Only real negative, if I had to name one, is that it's about 2 miles to the grocery store we used, but it was a nice store and worth it.

Great and tranquil location just a few minutes away from big hotels, restaurants, outlet mall, golf courses, and beaches. Near Puerto Rico's top attractions things to do in Puerto Rico, like San Juan (less than 25 minutes away), El Yunque rain forest (10 minutes), bioluminiscent bay in fajardo (15 minutes), ferry to Culebra and Vieques islands (15 minutes), and much more. Lots of things to do, for everyone...It doesn't matter if you are alone, a couple, a family, you will have lots to do around. Or you can stay at the apartment, relaxing, reading a good book, just sitting in front of the beach, or relaxing at the pool.
