Summer vacation was a success

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Puerto Rico so we were relying on others feedback to help us select our place to stay. This picture is truly taken from the veranda of this condo- the view is spectacular. The beach was easily accessible and not very crowded. the waves were just the right height for my 7 year old to learn to "ride the waves" and for the teenagers to jump around and have fun. The condo was well equipped with beach toys for everyone. There were plenty of towels for everyone, and the washer-dryer helped keep on top of the daily use. The unit is located about 40 minutes from San Juan airport, but it was very close to all of the activities we wanted to do- the most popular rain forest is 10 minutes away where they have hiking to beautiful waterfalls, the bioluminescent bay is also very close and the horseback riding was right down the road. It's a terrific spot for a family vacation, there was a supermarket directly across the street. There were also good restaurants and there is a loose leaf notebook in the condo with suggestions and menus from some of the better places others have gone and recommend. There was a very nice pool on the grounds, which was uncrowded and clean. And plenty of parking very close to the front door. The unit was a good size for everyone to feel comfortable. It was clean and there were extra sheets for all of the beds. The internet was very important for the teenagers and it worked perfectly on all of our laptops. Everyone was very nice-The owners were friendly and cooperative about pre-trip questions and late check-out. we were lucky to have good weather (not too hot as you might think) and we are hoping we can go back again next summer. We can highly recommend this unit for families who need 3 bedrooms with a spectacular view and are looking to see how beautiful Puerto Rico is without being in the middle of major tourism.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth time renting this condo. Even though it was just the two of us this time, I could'nt pass up the opportunity to stay here. The view, the breeze, the location, and lets not forget the neighbors. Jim and Elaine are the best. I go to Puerto Rico every two years and I am already making plans to stay there again.

Thank you Mr. Gonzalez for everything, and I can't wait for 2018!

Penthouse Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This rental has it ALL!! Including the greatest helpful neighbors on the 21st floor. It's like visiting family! Jose is an amazing person to rent from & answers all of your questions or concerns.

We went for my daughters high school graduation & 18th birthday celebration. Couldn't have been any better!

Only negative is that common areas are not air conditioned. There is a more than adequate cross breeze air flow though. Don't be concerned about Zika. It's a media frenzy exaggeration!!

We plan on returning again in 2017!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. The unit has A/C in each of the three bedrooms. As you mentioned, There is a more than adequate cross breeze air flow though therefore A/C in this area it is not necessary. This also allows me to keep the rental fee more reasonable by avoiding high cost of electricity (cost of electricity in PR is very high, higher than the any of the 50 states of USA). Please contact us again in the future.

Cole Family Vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our family vacation 20 June - 1 July in Puerto Rico! (first time to PR)

Unit 2101 on 21st floor was very well equipped and has spectacular ocean views plus there's always a breeze!

Playa Azul was very secure, very clean, and close to good sights and restaurants!

Beaches were great, Luquillo Beach is close - good for snorkeling and riding the waves.

Snorkeling off the point was ok (been too many people walking on the coral - we saw some people walk on it)

We were able to see a lot during our vacation: El Yunque (hiked to the waterfall), Camuy Caverns then Baja Vega Beach afterwards, Old San Juan (get there early because the museums close early), and Cayo Icacos (got crowded after a while). And we spend many days at the beach by the condo.

Only thing we didn't get to do was visit Culebra - the ferries were all sold out and plane tickets were too expensive.

All the food in PR was delicious. Restaurants we liked: Ayios (ate lunch there after landing in San Juan), Kasavista (best place - we ate there twice! and ask for Dennis!), La Parrilla (kioskos near the condo), Barrachina (in OSJ - got to see the Flamenco show!), Asere Cubano (across from the Market in La Placita), Lolita's (Mexican), Aroma's (close - good breakfast), Shimas (sushi in Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach), and I don't think we passed a bakery without stopping since they all have delicious breads and sweets!

Thank you Jose - you were very easy to work with!

Wish we could have stayed longer!

Great condo. with a great view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Playa Azul. The location is wonderful and the condo is very well equipped and well furnished with a wonderful view of the beach. Beds are a little firm but overall a very good value and accommodations. Would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the apartment and Puerto Rico. Regarding the beds, they are medium-firm mattresses. We selected them based on research we did in the internet and are recommended for apartment rentals where different people are using them. However comfort remains a subjective quality that varies according to personal preference and becomes difficult to find the selection best suited to personal tastes and physical requirements. I hope you contact us again in the future.

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed Playa Azul condo. We went for a week's stay in April 2016 for my nephew's wedding on the beach in Luquillo. The condo is very well furnished with all the amenities you need and was very clean and well-maintained. Especially enjoyed how well the kitchen was supplied with cookware and nice dishes. The condo is very attractively decorated and in no way cluttered. This condo is directly is on the beach and the winds/breezes off the ocean and the sounds of the surf were very soothing and relaxing. I did not even turn on the A/C the first 5 days there, but the last couple of days were less windy/breezy and more humid, so I turned it on at night. Thoroughly enjoyed the kioskos for dining and just browsing the shops and all the great dining options there and the surrounding area. Luquillo is quaint a little town. Jose the owner was very easy to work with and very enjoyable to meet, I liked have a local owner available if needed, but everything was perfect for the week we there. Will definitely have to return again sometime.
