Guestbook comments from the owner
Yes, we had a lovely time. (2/11/2011-3/4/2011)
Except for weekends and a few days during the school vacation week the pool was almost deserted and we felt we had the private luxury to ourselves. We went to crashboat beach many times and to Isabella beaches, which became our favorite (endless stretches are simply empty and the waves are scary to watch). At Isabella, we ate at Ocean Front (restaurant in the little hotel on the beach) and it was fine. We enjoyed Celia del Mar near the house (your recommendation), particularly nice with kids who could wander about looking for lizards if we sat over drinks). At crashboat, we discovered that the fish coop (official looking building on lower beach where the food vendors are) will sell you fresh fish from the day’s catch if you find them there (seemed liked Tuesday through Thursday afternoon was when they were in business). Best special occasion restaurant (surprisingly elegant and a bit expensive for Aguadilla, but very very good) is D’Grillade, on 111, in town, facing the water and the parking area. It has a nyc quality bar (try the lemon margarita) and food that is almost of that quality (ahi tuna tartare, osso bucco, wonderful fish). We left a menu for your red book. Went fishing on a lovely lake and campground on route 119 (you’ll see it on the map). Very nice family place. Near it are caverns worth exploring (last entry at 3:15 PM, so come early). If you go to Rincon, go into the hills for a marvelous breakfast and 360 views at a place we think is called the English Rose (forgot to write it down!). They even make their own jam. My husband likes the cherry strudel pastry at a little bakery across from the hospital (last right on 107 before you hit 2, about a block and ½ down the street, just a panaderia sign, no bread, only sweets) and the kids like the ice cream store in town on 111. We rented dvds at walgreens or amigos, at the redbox, and you can return them at any redbox. Made a day trip to Ponce, which has several small and charming museums in its little colonial center. As you come in on Route 2, before Ponce, there are a string of very good seafood restaurants right on the water. We ate at the last one and had an amazing grilled lobster.
Most of all, we chilled at the pool, the beach and on the amazing terrace.
I first went to Puerto Rico in 1975. I fell in love with the natural beauty of the island and the friendliness of the people. Every time I have come back to Puerto Rico I have felt that same welcome. I decided to make Puerto Rico my second home. I chose Puerta del Mar because of the ocean views, the water activities nearby and the proximity to the airport resulting in short travel distance.
This property contains both a covered patio lanai and a spacious rooftop terrace. The rooftop terrace overlooks the crystal clear water of Aguadilla Bay. You can enjoy drinks while watching the amazing sunsets disappear into the ocean. The view on top of this terrace is a breathtaking 270 degree view of nature's beauty. The unit can accommodate a large family. This corner unit is very private, perfect for the newly wed couple.
