I stayed in this lovely apartment during my last visit to Puerto Rico to visit family. I particularly wanted my accommodations to be just perfect since this was my fiancee's first trip to the island. This apartment offered the right amount amount of old city charm and modern day amenities. The apartment is equipped with everything you may need if you decide to cook at home during your stay. The apartment also has plenty of towels, iron, hair dryer, and too many other things to mention. The outdoor terrace is huge and provided the perfect setup for our morning mimosas. The location was absolutely perfect. the apartment is located within walking distance of everything Old San Juan has to offer, but away from all the night life noise. It is amazing what a difference a couple of blocks can make to the quietness of the apartment.
As a San Juan native, I was able to enjoy a lot of the "don't miss" during our visit. Breakfast at La Mallorca (no outdoor sitting, but that's where the locals go) located 2 blocks away from the apartment, walk 2 blocks to the San Cristobal Castle (both forts in Old San Juan are denominated castles), a nice 15 minute walk by the ocean to El Morro, from there,walk down Calle El Cristo and have a nice mid-day drink in the patio bar of El Convento, go down the street to enjoy La Rogativa statue for my favorite view of the city, go down the street and "exit" the city through the San Juan main gate, continue our walk next to the old city wall (known as Paseo La Princesa), then have a couple more drinks and delicious Puerto Rican food at the open air restaurant under/by the city wall, to finish the afternoon walk another 3-4 blocks and you're back in the apartment. Perfect!
This was a perfect first visit to the island for my fiancee. WIthout great accommodations and a perfect location, everything else would have been spoiled. This apartment was everything we expected and absolutely provides the perfect place to stay if you want to experience Old San Juan as we locals/natives do.
The owners were great answering all of our questions before our arrival and, even during our stay, I received a text message from them to ensure that we were enjoying our stay and that all our needs were met. In summary, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again during my next visit.
