Why Isabel or Juan chose Ocean Park

We love the breeze in the top roof pool. The beach in front of the apartment, the sunset, the sunrise, the location, the atmosphere, the puertorrican people, the food, the rain forest, the piña colada, the Mofongo, ocean park beach, Piñones, the Rain Forest El Yunque, the bioluminiscent bay, surf in #8, paddle surf in the ocean in front of the apartment, windsurf with friends, rum DonQ, the mangos, avocados and papayas, and my husband (:

What makes this apartment unique

There is nothing comparable with our two units sharing the top roof pool in San Juan, this I do now. And the hammock, of course.

Just What we were hoping for!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little anxious when we landed at the airport, it was my husband and myself and our 3 adult children and a friend. I was hoping that our accommodations would be as nice as the pictures on the internet. Well, we were met by Anna who was smiling and took us upstairs to the apartment. I have to say the apartment was every bit as nice as the photos and actually nicer!!! The big windows were open and the breezes were coming in, we heard the sounds of the surf and some bird songs!!! My concerns melted away!!!! The place was clean and comfortable and just perfect!! It was 10 steps to the beach!!! The roof top area was also just like the photos!!! Only better because we had the sounds of the little frogs!!! We would recommend this apartment to anyone going to PR!!! I'm already thinking about some girlfriends who would enjoy staying here!! With me of course! Well besides the apartment being just what we had hoped for, (the hammock was never empty!) the beach was lovely also, the warm water and different shades of blue were a sight to see after 2 months of cold up north. I didn't want to leave, we were going home to the coldest stretch of winter and about 2-3 more months of cold temps.

On the roof top we had several grilled dinners prepared for us by our sons! Drinks with rum prepared by me, and lots of nice time being together! We quickly got into a nice routine of swimming in the ocean and then coming up to the roof for a dip in the pool and then time on the lounge chairs!!

We will be back, for sure and we will stay here again!!!

I've found paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I rented both Sol y Mar to share with 5 other friends. This place was perfect for relaxation, big dinners together, and nooks to hide away. As a lover of art, I could appreciate the fusion of modern layout design, ethnic art pieces, beach-infused decorations and the children's artwork. It created a perfect sophisticated relaxed environment. And when they say 10 steps away from the beach, it literally is 10 steps. While some of my friends preferred the beach, others wanted the poolside atmosphere instead. Either way, both were so convenient, you could flip flop back and forth throughout the day. What I also enjoyed was that the air conditioning was sectioned for each room and was so quiet! Some friends preferred the warm air, while others wanted to cool down.

We had Ivelyse cater a dinner and it was the best decision made. Her food was amazingly delicious and there were leftovers for the next couple days. Also the new trendy bakery down the street was great for fresh baked breads, cookies and muffins. And you definitely have to try the pastelios on the beach - it's worth the $2 for a traditional PR snack.

Anna - the property manager was so nice and always responsive. She even remembered my birthday and sent me a birthday text.

Not only would I recommend this to others, this is the ONLY place I will stay from now on when visiting PR. Many thanks to Isabel for her vision on how to make her guests feel special!

Good Potential

  • 3 of 5

I stayed in the upper unit with a group of friends for a girls getaway with the rest of the group in the lower unit. The pictures look fantastic however the property was not very clean and well maintained. The door stoppers on the upper level leading to the balcony would not go down all of the way. There was mold in the bathroom shower, the steps leading to the inside of the pool on the roof were completely broken which is a safety hazard. Also the units as well as the roof top area had chipped paint. Overall, the rental just needed a thorough cleaning and some general maintainence which would allow it to better align with the pictures on the website.

Ok

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property wasn't horrible, but there are some things that could use some adjusting. I stayed in the upper level apartment. The first thing I noticed when I arrived is that the place was not very clean. It was very dusty and the stove was filthy. The floor was dirty and the bottom of my feet were constantly dirty and I had to sweep and mop the floor myself. It would have been nice if someone would have cleaned the actual apartment and not just the common areas prior to our arrival. Also the tv that was in the room with that bathroom did not work so I couldn't watch tv and that was upsetting. The private pool on the top roof had broken steps and bugs in the pool, it looked like it had not been cleaned in a while. We also had red ants everywhere. I know being in a climate like Puerto Rico, bugs are everywhere but maybe they should supply bug spray or bug bomb the place before people come to stay. On a positive note I liked the fact that we were so close to the beach. I would not stay here again because I enjoy the amenities that hotels offer (i.e. restaurants/food on site, bars on sight, spa services, daily housekeeping, staff that speaks English).

gorgeous

  • 3 of 5

Mar is a beautiful property on the 2nd floor with great views and a convenient location in a safe neighborhood near restaurants(Mango' s, Pamela'a, Kasalta, Church's chicken, Burger King, Seafood, Mexican) and a couple stores.

5 women on a girl's trip that was enjoyed with great timing to miss the first MN snow(15.5") of the season.

We loved the pool (4th floor) two of the 3 lounge chairs poolside are in bad ripped shape and need to be replaced. We also hauled the beach chairs and the small cooler to the beach for variety.

I had the master bedroom to myself the first two nights. The air conditioner built up condensation that dripped onto the bed and ran down the wall making it musty. I had allergies triggered and I don't have any regularly occurring issues. There's either black mold or mildew on the ceiling(I have photos on my phone) I slept horribly from the first night, bought antihistamine at Walgreens and took daily with no relief even after switching rooms. There is bubbling paint in the kitchen and entry ceiling that seemed to be from moisture. I was plugged up and developing a sinus infection.

The solarium/roof Windows leaked making the floor hazardous. An old towel was living on a beam above the small table.

The ice maker didn't keep up with our needs. There was no laundry soap to wash our beach or bath towels nor, dish soap~only hand soap. Plenty of shampoo is provided.

We did not cook only made cold sandwiches for lunch and am coffee. There are 3 coffee makers and a large electric griddle along with the cooktop, no oven. The blender worked great for rum drinks :)

Overall we had a nice trip and enjoyed our stay even though we thought the apartment was overpriced and expected better conditions for the amount we spent.

Gorgeous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was beautiful! Orginially upon arriving, the apartment we were shown was completely different than the one in the pictures. Come to find out we were in a bigger apartment then the one above us. Isabel was not in town, so Ana was our contact person. She was absolutely wonderful.

We were able to come earlier than expected and look around the apartment while the last people staying were packing and getting ready to leave. Anytime we needed anything and called her, she was available and very helpful. She was very nice to work with.

The apartment was gorgeous. It was such an open space, I especially loved the big, sliding, glass doors. The rooftop pool was the perfect spot for us! We grilled and had a few great days up there when it was raining. The only thing I would fix is there were two leaks coming from the roof onto the tile flooring that need to be fixed. Other than that, everything was great. I would most definetely come back and rent both apartments out for a big group trip!

Thanks for everything Isabel! We really enjoyed ourselves :)
