Great Launching Point for PR Adventures

  • 5 of 5

Moisés is a wonderful, trustworthy and excellent host. His communication skills are superb and he was incredibly helpful. He did his very best to make sure that we were prepared to optimize our stay in Puerto Rico.

The villa is clean, safe and well-maintained. The grounds are secure and the pool is very clean. Neighbors are friendly and quiet. Nearby, there are a nice set of beaches and fun restaurants with a bustling night life.

Dorado, itself, makes a great launching point for excursions either to the east towards San Juan or to the west towards Rincon and the beautiful beaches of Aguadilla.

If you are planning to maximize your stay in Puerto Rico then this rental in Dorado is a great choice and a wonderful place to call "home base." Additionally, Moisés can provide great insight into the sights, sounds and flavors of Puerto Rico.

The facility was a little dated. The villa was very nice and well kept. The owner was very accommodating. The location is great. I would recommend to anyone interested. I plan on rescheduling the next time I plan a trip to Puerto Rico.

Excellent choice for long-term rental

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented Moises's villa for a long-term stay this winter. It was very comfortable and fully equipped. The sun porch off the master bedroom provided a quiet getaway for reading. The kitchen was well equipped, and it was nice to have a washer and drier. The villa complex is an older area, and while some of the individual units need care, Moises's property was clean and well maintained and Mosies was available to answer questions. When one of the air conditioner units stopped working, repairmen were sent immediately. Excellent customer service!

The grounds were constantly maintained, and the pool was wonderful! The beach was very handy (and nice). I felt quite safe being in the complex by myself when my husband travelled back and forth for work. The private security guards were present on the property at all hours.

We enjoyed the ease with which we could get to Old San Juan by taking the ferry at Catana. The beach restaurants/bars were fun to go to, and I appreciated having a modern grocery store within a few minutes' drive. Also, having Walgreens and CVS nearby was handy.

There is so much to see and do in Puerto Rico. Dorado was very convenient as a "home base" and Moises's villa was an excellent choice. We hope to go back to the Dorado area and will certainly rent the villa again if it is available.

Moises' Villa

  • 4 of 5

The owner's villa was clean and well maintained. The owner was nice and ewdy to help with any questions. The place was also safe because of the gated community and guard patrols. The kitchen was well equipped as well as the bathrooms, cooking supplies, dishes, towels, etc.... Beach was within walking distance. We loved the pool. We went to San Juan on a daily basis so we did not eat near the villa. The only place we went to near the villa was a beauty shop next to a Sally's Beauty store in front of a Burger King. DO NOT go there. In my opinion, the ladies did not know what they were doing and they charged an arm and a leg because the owner saw we were tourists. They quoted me a price before we sat down (2 children and I) and then they doubled it at the end. Paid $335.00 for simple hair styles for a wedding. Recommend villa but not shops around there.

Owner's Response: Ofelia, thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed our Villa and the amenities and it was my pleasure to have you as a guest. On the other hand, as you may have noticed, Dorado is a tourist town and, just like in other places like this, there are tourist traps such as the one you described. Just so you know, I have already sent a formal complaint to the local Department of Consumer Affairs (DACO) to alert them of their unfair practices. I have always handed my customers a list of proven and trusted commerce in Dorado but I will now include a list of places not to trust and this beauty shop will be the first one on the list! I hope this experience will not deter you of visiting us again in the future.

All the comforts of home!

  • 4 of 5

The property was spacious, well kept and fully stocked (soup to nuts). One of the features we enjoyed and took advantage of was being close to where the local fisherman sell their day's catch. We spent the day at the beach and then purchased / cooked a 7 lb. lobster. The location is ideal; close to San Juan, Condado and not far from El Yunque, Luqillo and Rio Grande. It was a perfect family vacation!

Thank you, Moises, for the orientation and for having such a lovely place. I look forward to future trips and hopefully, you will still have your place available to rent.

Great time in Dorado!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 young adult children spent Christmas week at Moises' Dorado condo. The unit was just as pictured, nicely furnished with 3 bedrooms, 2 with bunk beds and 1 with queen bed - be aware that it is three floors with the master bed and bath on the third floor - not a problem for us as we were happy to get the added exercise. The balcony off the master suite was the best place in the condo! It is in an older gated community and does show it's age some - this is not a shiny, new condo. But it was very clean and we had everything we needed including new appliances (loved the French press), travel mugs, containers, beach towels and even a cooler. There were not many people around and several units were abandoned and in severe disrepair. However, the grounds were well maintained and the pool was fabulous. You will have one key and one car remote so all coming and going needs to be well coordinated since you need the key to lock and unlock the condo, enter or leave the pool and enter or leave the communities locked gates. We walked to the Dorado Beach everyday, past lively bars and restaurants with lots of people hanging around and enjoying themselves. The park was very comfortable and safe with joggers and families always present. We usually walked 10 minutes west towards the Ritz Carlton property where the beach was cleared and more deserted. No jellyfish, some seaweed, no undertow and small waves - enough to body surf or boggie board. We had a car and spent a day at the beautiful Loquillo and Farjado beaches, a morning at Old San Juan, a morning in El Yunke zip-lining and a full day driving all the way around the west side of the island - Jobos Beach was fantastic, rented a surf board for several hours, and snorkeled and swam in the Bio Bay in Parguera. The grocery store and pharmacy were 10 minutes away, right near the community entrance. Since we wanted to see several places on the island, the central location of Dorado worked well for us. Make sure you have a current road map of the island - driving was very challenging with extremely poor signage and lots of traffic around San Juan. Moises was a wonderful host - very helpful and accommodating. He allowed us to arrive a night early due to travel plans, even meeting us at the condo at 2:00am. We had some problems with the Wi-fi which he took care of very quickly. He was very helpful with information about the area, too. We would definitely recommend renting from Moises to anyone.
