We have always loved to vacation anywhere with a beach. We decided to purchase a retirement/vacation home and wanted a calm, relaxing place that we could enjoy with our family.

We visited Puerto Rico to look at real estate and fell in love with the island and the people. We chose Arecibo because it is not a touristy area and the local people are welcoming and friendly. We are located right on the ocean and the crashing waves on the rocks are unbelievably relaxing. All beaches in Puerto Rico are public. Our condo is located along a rocky area, so you cannot go into the water there; however, a minute and a half drive away is a beautiful public beach. Even on weekends and holidays when the beach is busy, our condo beach is quiet and relaxing. It is a great place to watch hermit crabs and iguanas or climb on the rocks to fish or look for sea creatures.
We have a gazebo with beach furniture that is the perfect place to take a nap. We also have a 'famous' restaurant next door, Salitre, which specializes in seafood. A few doors down is a bakery and a fruit stand. We are 10 minutes from the Arecibo Lighthouse and 30 minutes from the Outlet Mall.
It was an awesome place to stay. Loved the bakery next door cuban sandwich is awesome and the restaurant on the other side. Great time and beautiful place. Loved the beaches that were so close to the condo and would go back in a heartbeat.
Our stay at Atlantica condo in Arecibo was truly a wonderful experience. The condo was beautifully decorated. The location was convenient with a bakery next door that had delicious breakfast sandwiches and the prices were excellent. The restaurant next door did not disappoint as well, absolutely delicious. It was a little pricey but the seafood was straight out of the ocean, worth every penny. There is also fast food close (about 2 miles) Churches Chicken, Burger King and Wendy's. The beach is right in your back yard, just walk 50 feet or so to the right and it is amazing! There is also another great beach to the left about a minute's walk. We will be returning ASAP and Atlantica will be our 1st choice. It feels like you have the whole place to yourself during the week. And the sunsets, simply perfect!
We loved the property, it had everything we needed and more. The location is great, next to a great restaurant, Salitre and others. We will definately recommend it and come back!
The pictures and reviews do not do Atlantica justice. This condo is absolutely beautiful, and the owners are extremely thoughtful and pleasant to deal with. My family enjoyed a wonderful week, away from the hustle and bustle. There are a few great restaurants nearby (Salitre and Salpicon are most memorable), a great bakery next door, and very friendly neighbors. Every day we had the pool to ourselves. Cueva del Indio is a must for any visitor. San Juan restaurants and nightlife is only an hour away. We absolutely loved it here, and can't wait to visit again.
We loved this place! The setting is lovely, on a beautiful beach where the ocean provided awesome entertainment. The condo was very clean, comfortable, and with lots of extras provided for use in the pool and beach area. We had small children in our group (3 to 7 y.o.) and the pool was great for them. Area is very nice, right outside the town of Arecibo where you can find pharmacies, supermarkets, dept. stores, etc. Wonderful restaurant next door, as well as a bakery. You must try the Puerto Rican breakfast of cafe con leche with toasted Puerto Rican bread with butter! Buy the bread fresh every morning at the bakery and sit down to enjoy your cafe right in front of your condo while listening to the ocean. Very nice beaches to visit up and down the coast nearby. Visit the Cueva del Indio for some beautiful views of the ocean and the rocky shore- beautiful pictures! Some great snorkeling (and scuba) in the area of the Cueva del Indio-- equipment not provided right there, but there might be places nearby that rent scuba equipment.
We decided to stay an extra day and were able to reach the owner quickly and easily. Very friendly and helpful. i would definitely go back to that condo and I recommend it heartily.
Arecibo is a great location on the north side of the island. It is about 65-70minutes from the airport, travelled on good highways and a toll road. It is close to the Camuy Caverns (worth a visit) and the very interesting Arecibo Ionospheric Observatory- a huge radar built into a 'nest' formed by hills. Rincon, a beach area known worldwide for surfing, is about less than an hour and a half away, as are the beaches of Aguadilla and Isabela. The area of Guajataca (on the way to Isabela, etc.) has some wonderful rain forest areas worth a visit.
One recommendation I can make is to have more, and larger, cooking pots and pans. The skillets were not in good condition (easy to ruin teflon pans, I realize) and we were short some larger pots to prepare food for more than 3 or 4 people. Apart from that, the kitchen was very well equipped.
First of all, the place was a little difficult to find given the lack of a physical address that we could've entered into our GPS. The written instructions provided were relatively clear up the the very end, where details were lacking, we are not good guesstimating millage. GPS coordinates would have helped us reach our destination sooner.
Once there, we were quite pleased with the condo's layout and amenities. By having a washer and dryer in the unit allowed us to bring less cloths on our trip. The only thing I wish we had was a dishwasher. The fact that it had AC made it a big plus; the weather was unseasonably warm for this time of the year.
The premises were very well maintained. The pool was very nice, and though the beach lost quite a bit of sand thanks to Sandy, it seemed that nature was starting to take over.
Altogether we had a great time at this condo. The weather was perfect – albeit too warm – while we were there. Saw quite a bit of nature in the back yard, and at night time we saw several night herons coming to drink water from the pool, to then walk to the beach in search of food. Around noon we saw baby iguanas eating the new leaf growth on the lawn.
I would definitely go back there for my next vacation. Thanks for letting us use your place for vacation.
