Enjoy a stair-free stay at our 'Marbella' unit (wheelchair accessible; user friendly for seniors). A brightly painted, clean, spacious living room awaits. Expansive windows frame the Atlantic and the 11' curved sofa practically says, 'bienvenido...welcome'. Enjoy morning coffee on your terrace or your favorite meals in a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. An inviting extra comfy chaise lounge and leather chair makes the DVD collection (movies and concerts) much more enjoyable, complete with 54' Plasma TV, BluRay and Surround Sound. Stay connected with Hi-Speed Wi-Fi throughout the unit. Take the binoculars on your day trip and if it looks like rain, take one of our umbrellas along for the ride. Rest comfortably in Master bedroom with King bed, private bath, walk-in closet. The Guest bedroom with Queen bed, wall-to-wall closet; both offer A/C. Sun or surf at Crashboat Beach, just a 3-minute ride and don't cut your vacation short; BQN Airport is just 10 min. away. See below; more to know...

Why consider our 'Marbella' Unit ??: If you have decided to visit Puerto Rico for vacation or for business, know that you are only ten (10) minutes away from the Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) and the Punta Borinquen Golf Course (public course) that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and lends to great golfing and beautiful views. The Aguadilla Water Park, Indoor Skating Rink, Mayaguez Mall (the largest on the West Coast), supermarkets and many restaurants (local, fast food and national chains) are also very close. Crashboat Beach is visible from your terrace, as are the Continental, JetBlue, and Spirit Air flights as they descend towards BQN Airport. Front-row, unobstructed terrace views of spectacular sunsets are priceless !!! In the winter, be on the lookout for whales as they migrate to warmer waters. We have provided a First Aid Kit for any minor boo-boos you may encounter. The Aguadilla Walgreen's is five (5) minutes away; the Mayaguez Walgreen's (open 24/7) is only twenty (20) minutes away.For an emergency, Hospital Buen Samaritano (Good Samaritan) is on Route #2, about ten (10) minutes away.

We hope you will consider the 'Marbella' unit of Puerta Del Mar as your vacation oasia in Puerto Rico, away from the hustle and bustle and traffic congestion of the San Juan district and surrounding metropolitan area. We have taken great care to provide you, your family and guests with very comfortable and dignified accommodations. If there is a special request, please bring it to our attention. If it is within our means, we will do what we can to accommodate you. Thank you.....Gracias, for considering 'Marbella', where 'mi casa...es su casa'. Inquire today; we look forward to hearing from you.

Sun, Sea, Sand Accommodations Second to None!

  • 5 of 5

Though born in San Juan and now residing Stateside, Aguadilla was "home." During my Dad's 29-year military career, we left and returned to Aguadilla numerous times, and upon Dad's retirement, settled in the community once again. My review presents the perspective of a "local" since I know the area and all it has to offer. On my last few trips to Aguadilla, I observed with interest the building of the Puerta del Mar complex and discussed with my daughters that the developers had selected prime real estate overlooking the ocean. My parents lived a short 3-4 minute drive from Crashboat Beach, so we always had a place to stay. That changed with my parents' passing.

Puerta del Mar became a reality to us when presented with the need for accommodations near my parents' home. Bert and Edgar's condo is in prime location, immaculately clean, beautifully furnished in modern design, and tastefully decorated by two men who missed their calling to be in the home design and decorating industry! You enter and the mind goes into "relax" mode. Bert and Edgar have taken care of the minutest details to make your stay an unforgettable experience. Two bottles of red wine and an elegantly-set table welcomed us into the dining room--a classy touch! Everything, short of groceries, was provided. It is evident Bert and Edgar take pride in their home away from home, and want every guest to feel welcome. Their detailed contract left no question unanswered.

The personal care we experienced before, during, and after our stay is noteworthy. Bert and his family made certain we had everything we needed, even a brand new high chair and a Pack and Play for my 10-month old granddaughter! Additionally, Bert and his daughter insured the high-speed internet connection was operational, a work-related necessity for us. Bert called numerous times to insure all was in order. Under the circumstances of our trip, he also called to inquire how we were doing. That kindness and personal concern has carried through even after our return. Bert's wife also telephoned to insure all was okay with the baby furniture. This is Customer Service above and beyond all expectations. We established a special bond/relationship from our stay, and can't wait for our next visit.

You need not leave the premises of Puerta del Mar for an enjoyable, relaxing, and rejuvenating get-away; but, I suggest getting out and exploring the Island.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND these two amazing hosts--Bert and Edgar, and their condo.

Owner's Response: "Mi casa es su casa" are words that most of us have read or heard at some point in our lives. While they convey a sense of "welcome" and "make yourself at home", these words are not taken lightly for the guests of the "Marbella" unit at Puerta Del Mar. In effect, living up to this expectation is our mission. When a guest chooses to stay at our property, they are trusting us with their vacation, their family and loved ones. As such, they are treated like family and they can expect this personal touch. We thank you for your Review and the kind sentiments you have expressed. We look forward to a future visit when you can stay under better circumstances. Thank you.....mil gracias, Bert

What can I say about Bert, this property, the hospitality and professionalism that I have not said all of the other times, my family and I have stayed at PDM. It's Home... my family and I have stayed at PDM so often that we have never thought of going ANYWHERE else. In a world of so many changes it is PRICELESS to be able to have a place that you feel it is HOME. I am very clear that I only RENT this marvelous condo which is located in a marvelous area, however, my heart disagrees each and every time. The pictures are as accurrate as you can ever get, the condo is always impeccably clean and well maintained each and every time we make our way to PDM. As always Bert thinks of everything and ensures that each experience is better than the last one. If you choose this porperty I PROMISE YOU that you will not be disappointed. I am LYING, you will be disappointed... when you have to LEAVE! Thank you Bert

Owner's Response: Carmen, You and your family are so, so welcome !!! Thank you for such a wonder-full Review. When I think back to the first of your five stays (2011) and learned that your kids cried as you were all leaving the condo, it was both heartwarming and sad to hear. There is a bond that is formed between Owner and Guest and in a business transaction, nothing could be more rewarding. It has all-ways been a pleasure to host you and your family....and another bond has been formed. Gracias, Bert

3rd times a charm

  • 5 of 5

I guess if you stay 3 times in the same place you must really love it. This is our third stay at Puerta Del Mar & specifically at Bert's beautiful Condo overlooking Crashboat beach in Aguadilla, PR. It was my 80 yr. old father's first visit to PDM & he was truly impressed with the complex and apt. Everything you need is within 5 minutes of the complex, ok the airport is 10 minutes :) I guarantee you will not be disappointed and the owner Bert is very hands on and attentive with any questions or needs you have. The apt has everything you need. Just bring your swim suit, clothes & you're pretty much set for an awesome time. Looking forward to my 4th stay. If I'm staying at PDM, I'm staying at Bert's condo. Thanks again Bert for helping make our stay so enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Dare I say you had a "charming" time ?? :) Hi Rob, Thank you for trusting us once again with you much deserved vacation time. I trust you and Suzy enjoyed the peace and tranquility that Puerta Del Mar offers. Glad to know that your Dad enjoyed the space as well. As for that arduous ten (10) minute commute from the airport (BQN) to the complex, I'll see if la Alcaldia (Town Hall) can do something about synchronizing the green lights to cut into that time. Thanks for your continued business. Bert

Outstanding vacation at Puerta Del Mar

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another wonderful stay in this gorgeous two bedroom condo at Puerta del Mar in Aguadilla.as with our first stay every convenience was ready for us in the condo.Its so beautifully decorated and the furnishings are incredibly comfortable.The view of the sea is amazing from the private deck and the sunsets will keep us coming back.Our host Bert couldn't be more hands on and attentive to anything that we needed or any questions.We drove all over the island this time and visited incredible Camuy Caves,El Yunque rainforest and the gorgeous mountain area of Utuado .Puerto Rico is paradise and we will definitely come back to Puerta del Mar.Its the perfect place to stay and relax or venture out and discover all that Puerto Rico has to offer.Many thanks Bert and Liz for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Wonderful vacation on west coast

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation on the west coast. Aguadilla was a wonderful launching point with a great beach, proximity to excellent restaurants and many diversions. Bert's condo was clean, tastefully decorated and had all the comforts of home. The propert was beautiful, safe and overlooked the ocean. We enjoyed day trips to Rincon, Parguera, Isabella and Cabo Rojo. Most of all we loved Aguadilla and our lodging.

Arrive at this private, gated, resort-style community and you'll soon forget the daily grind back home. Your escape to our 'Marbella' unit in Puerta Del Mar will be an unforgetable one. Here, 'mi casa es su casa' is re-defined in this Mediterranean-style complex perched 300' above the Atlantic Ocean, in full view from your private terrace. Located in the northwest corner of this 100x35 mile tropical paradise in the beach, surfing and fishing town of Aguadilla (a-gwah-DEE-yah), Puerta Del Mar is an award winning complex that joins other nearby ocean front towns in comprising the west coast region known as Porta Del Sol. It is here where Puerto Rico's most beautiful sunsets are showcased at every dusk, where the moon glistens over the calm ripples of the majestic Atlantic Ocean and where the local 'coqui' (miniature island frogs) sing into the night bringing closure to your first day. Your inner most vibes tell you, 'this will be a special vacation'. Read below; there IS more to know....
