About Archie Arjona

I grew up in San Juan. The second of four siblings. Ex-alumni and ex-athlete (Volleyball Varsity) of UPR Rio Piedras Campus. Graduated 1984 BBA. Worked for USCO Warehouse, IBM, Accounting Systems of PR, Inc., Kelly Services, Inc. and as today I own Top Forms And Supplies (business forms and office supplies). I also have been married since 1984 and have 2 daughters, 4 grandchildren. I quit smoking since 2007 :)

Archie Arjona purchased this villa in 2011

Why Archie Arjona chose Rio Mar

The property is located inside the premises of one of the best resorts in PR where the beach and Hotel facilities are part of the package and the special decor and ambientation of the property will put anyone in the real vacation mode. Also it is far enough to enjoy the tranquility of the El Yunque rain forest, it is only 25 minutes from the airport and 30 to Old San Juan, the quintessential colonial neighborhood with narrow streets paved with slate-blue cobblestones, plazas, colonial mansions, ancient churches, intriguing museums, vivacious restaurant, bars and galleries all enclosed by thick fortress walls.

Spanish is the official language but almost anyone speaks English fluently and US dollar is the local currency.

What makes this villa unique

The Rio Mar Country Club Guest Passes are included in the price of your rental. With them you can use the Ocean Club pool and beach access with free parking for guests. Or take the shuttle to hotel facilities like the restaurants, lounges and casino with live music during weekends. Hotel rules and hours of operation most be followed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Archie,

We are on our way back to Connecticut

Beautiful Villa, Great Owner and Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter Archie's villa located on the beautiful Wyndham Rio Mar Property about 30 - 35 minutes from San Juan, you feel like you are home.

The home is beautifully decorated and comes with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. With 2 adults and 2 children (12&15) in the villa, it was more space than we needed. The bunk beds are so comfortable, I slept in one for the entire trip and gave my wife the huge King bed in the Master Bed Room. The rooms are larger than the photos show and the place is super spotless.

Even though it can get very hot in PR, the villa has air conditioners in every room which cool all the rooms in minutes. We visited a local supermarket on our first day and used the kitchen every morning for breakfast. This saved us a ton of money.

We used the passes Archie provides and had a blast at the hotel beach and pool. One day we used the Owners pool and beach access, where it was much more relaxing. The villa even has boogie boards which the kids used to ride some awesome waves.

At the end of our trip, we used the washing and drying machines located a few steps from the villa and did all our laundry before heading home. Coming home with no laundry is a huge time saver.

While there, eat at the local kiosks in Luquillo (trust me, they are really good) on Rt 3, go horseback riding at the Hacienda Carabali (http://www.carabalirainforestpark.com/horsebackriding.php) and definitely, definitely learn to surf with Briand and Eric at La Pared in Luquillo Beach (http://www.kayakingpuertorico.com/pages/surfing-lessons.html).

If you are thinking of visiting PR or the Rio Mar area, don't waste your money and stay at the hotel. For about the same or even less money, you can have your own villa with all the benefits of home.

I highly recommend this property and we all can’t wait to come back!

Excellent location, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

This villa is the ideal vacation destination for a family. We traveled to PR with our two young children and this villa had everything we needed - kitchen, two bathrooms, bunk beds, great location, access to all amenities at the Wyndham resort. Archie was an exceptional host - we had a small issue with the A/C when we arrived and within 24 hours he had a repairman come to replace the entire unit. I cannot say enough about our experience at Archie's villa. We are already dreaming about our return visit.

So Much to Like

  • 5 of 5

There is so much to like about our stay in Rio Mar Villa. The easy drive from SJU airport. The secure surroundings of the Rio Mar property and the beautiful maintained environment. The Villa has the charm of a European village. The view outside of the red tile roofs, white stucco buildings surrounded by lush green plantings made for a peaceful carefree vacation. My wife and I are early birds and enjoy a nice long walk before breakfast. This location was perfect. The amenities allowed us to prepare a good start to the day and eat on the deck with a spectacular view. The property was well maintained, nicely decorated, and very comfortable, we slept like babies. The owner, Archie, was very responsive to our needs, although there were not to many. I would highly recommend this property. The VIP Passes are a plus and the use of the owners pool and beach allows the opportunity to meet other friendly villa guests. Many fine local restaurants within easy driving, the national rain forest, the ferry dock and good grocery stores, along with warm water and air temperatures make this Villa a big hit.

Great place for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Archie's villa for President's week, two families with one child each. The villa was very well decorated, very clean, had everything you need. We used both pools and beaches, the resort one and members one. Didn't use the shuttle to the resort, so had to pay for the parking there. Both beaches are great! Plenty of lounge chairs. Hotel's pool has a nice waterslide for the kids. Villa's location is great, close to everything. Restaurants and bars in the resort are expensive, but you are minitues away from Lucillo kiosks, Amigo supermarket, Fajardo and Bio Bay. Archie was very responsive to all our questions. Highly recommend staying here. Bunk beds would probably be a good option for families with more kids. One suggestion, it would be good to have an option of reconfiguring two single beds

Wonderful place to stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at this villa. The villa had been remodeled since we were there last year, which was a nice surprice. the beds are all very comfortable and we all slept well each night. Everything was very clean. This year we were a group of 5 women and had plenty of room. The access to the resort is a great perk. If you are using the private beach for the villas, the bar is available on Saturdays and you can even order food. We even saw someone getting a massage right on the beach. Near the Wydham you can also see some iguanas that will come very close to you, which is pretty cool to see. When swimming at the Wyndham beach, when you get about waste deep there are thousands of sand dollars. Odd to walk on, but so cool to be able to reach down and look at a live one up close. I hope to return to this villa again in the not too distant future. Archie was great nto work with and was always very quick to respond to any questions I had.
