This apartment is perfect! Location was amazing, it was very clean, safe, had a nice view of the beach, great big comfortable bed and most important Zulmarie answered any questions/concerns that I had within minutes. I would definetly stay here again!!!
First of all, dealing directly with an owner who responds diligently and fully to your questions, is a big positive start. I made sure the place fulfills our needs before making the decision to rent it because a family vacation with teenagers has to please everyone. The condo is enough spacious for the 4 of us. Clear, modern, light, nice views and generously stocked with bunch of towels (first time I saw that). The king bed made me want one:) Very confy, the boys find also their beds comfortables. I can't say enough good things about how well maintained this place is. I didn't know the condo was at the dead end of the corridor, nice plus for the quietness. It is centrally located, easy walk to the grocery, to the bus stop if you don't have a car, parking is included if you have one, laundry on main floor (note that you have to bring 5 or 10$ to insert in the machine to get coins, as 25¢ or 1$ are not accepted). The pool is large, the beach is beautiful, some rocks in the water but you can walk a little bit east to find a better spot. All these amenities made it a nice stay as everyone could find his own way to enjoy himself. We did body surf all together, playing with the waves, and I enjoyed my yoga practice every morning, but this time, I was the one really on the beach, it wasn't a t.v screen. Many thanks to Zulmarie who never missed an email or a txt from me. It was a real pleasure to share your place!
This is a very clean, nice, comfortable place with easy access to the beach and night life. I had a great time staying here and would definitely come back. The owners are very friendly and helpful and will answer questions/concerns in a timely fashion. I'll be recommending to my friends and family without a doubt..
Plusses- I must begin with how wonderful our entire trip was! Before staying in Condado, my NOW fiancé and I have visited Puerto Rico twice before. We thought staying in a condo this year would not only be exciting, but would be much more economical, and would give us the true tourist experience. We absolutely loved everything about our trip from being able to walk to everything in the area, to being picked up in 5 minutes in the lobby after calling for a shuttle. Everything went smoothly and we were so sad to leave. We met many new people, ate tons of food... which I am still trying to work off, and cooked everyday in the condo. We had every single thing we needed, and if it was not already in the condo we went to the "SuperMax" about a 5 minute walk away. We wanted to make the most of our trip and experience everything.
The bed (true KING size) was great for both of us considering we are both above 6ft tall, my fiancé is 6'5" and he had no issues at all with the bed... this is usually one of our complaints. The water pressure was great, and the refrigerator and freezer were actually cold! We have traveled all over the caribbean and this is usually an issue as well! You will be pleasantly surprised. The bathroom was also stocked with everything from shampoo to sunscreen! Did I say how pleased we were with almost everything yet?!
Overall, what a great area... and great place to get engaged... and possibly married!
Cons: Hmmm, not very many at all...but here are the honest few.
-A few bugs in the condo... although the apartment is very clean, a few critters managed to make their way in. We went to the grocery store and purchased some spray, we didn't have very many issues at all after that.
- No beach/Pool towels- Who wants to do laundry on vacation?
-The beach is very beautiful, so beautiful that you will be tempted to swim in the water... BEWARE the tide is rough, and the waves can be VERY DANGEROUS!!! Although this had nothing to do with the condo, I wish someone had warned me. I suffered a pretty severe back injury while in the water, but I did not allow it to ruin my trip.
-The heat... can be somewhat unbearable, so keep the condo cool... if not, you may wake up very sweaty and hot due to the weather in PR. I guess we were used to staying in a hotel... where the rooms are kept cool. We tried to conserve as much energy as possible and tried not to use the AC, but it can get pretty sticky if your body is not used to the weather.
My husband and I stayed here for our much needed (and highly anticipated) 1st trip to Puerto Rico! Zulmarie (the owner) was helpful and responsive as our trip approached, providing the information we needed. We had a slight issue getting to the condo itself - when I initially put the address into my GPS, it took us to another location further down Avenida Ashford. It took a bit, but we were able to find the building.
As noted by other reviewers, the building itself is dated and a bit rundown. One of the elevators for the building was out the whole week we were there, which was a bit irritating. However, there was always at least one operational elevator - we just had to wait a bit.
The condo itself was wonderful, and just as advertised. The furniture arrangement was a bit different than the pictures, but we actually preferred it because it cleared space by the windows. The views were great, and it was nice and big - a very comfortable place to unwind! It was great for us to have a kitchen, because we had some meals there - especially with leftovers from the delicious nearby restaurants!
The pool and beach access were great - so lovely to be so close!
We rented a car the whole time, which we enjoyed to be able to get around the island, but definitely wouldn't be necessary. Lots is within walking distance, and the bus runs nearby too. It was very nice to have a designated parking spot for our rental.
Our favorite things from the week: Pinky's restaurant (next to Starbucks), walking distance from the condo. Go there for breakfast and get the breakfast sandwich and the all fruit smoothie. AMAZING! We also loved Basilia's, which is another great restaurant walking distance away. We loved taking the bus into old San Juan, and wandering around. The trolley for the Park System is great - it's free and goes not only in between the forts, but all around the old city. We coordinated a rainforest tour through the Mariott that was nice, but our very favorite was our catamaran/snorkel tour with the Spread Eagle II. AMAZING!!
Our biggest issue came the last night when we lost power for the rest of our trip. Zulmarie was responsive, and I trust that she was doing her best to get it restored, but was not able to. It was frustrating, and a disappointing end to an otherwise wonderful trip. That said, Zulmarie was very accommodating, and made up for the issue.
In the end, we'd recommend this place to anyone visiting Puerto Rico! We loved it, and hope to come back!
