About Judith Santa-Rivera

I am a retired elementary school teacher who grew up in the Bronx, N.Y. My parents were born and raised in Puerto Rico and moved to New York to give me and my 4 siblings a better life. I was raised in the Puerto Rican culture and life-style. I so loved my culture that I learned about Puerto Rican culture and History in school. I have traveled to Puerto Rico often and have always wanted to own property in Puerto Rico. In 2012, my dream came true when I purchase my beautiful condo in Puerta Del Mar, in Aguadilla, P.R. I am so proud of my condo. It is beautifully decorated and the culture of Puerto Rico is evident through out the apartment from the beautiful tropical colors to the Puerto Rican paintings and artwork.

Judith Santa-Rivera purchased this condo in 2012

Why Judith Santa-Rivera chose Borinquen

I bought this property because I live in New York, where the Winters are very cold and snowy. I wanted a second property in Puerto Rico, a place that is beautiful, with warm weather and great beaches. I was drawn to this condo by its beautiful resort look and its closeness to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefits that you will enjoy is the beautiful view from the balcony. You will also love the personal touches that I have added to my home. Paintings and artwork of the Puerto Rican culture is reflected throughout the apartment. The media room has a Puerto Rican music theme. Paintings of Puerto Rican musical instruments and a guitar decorate the walls.

I had a memorable, priceless family vacation! The condo is amazing. The view is breathtaking.

  • 5 of 5

I normally stay with family when I visit PR but with Hurricane Maria it left my family with no power in Yabucoa 6 months later. My family and I decided to rent out a condo and not only did it meet my expectations it super exceeded it. I was in contact with the condo owner Judith a couple of times and her response was almost immediate. Judith is very professional and kind. Honestly, she felt like family. I would definitely come to this location and definitely rent from Judith. My other family members stayed in the same facilities but rented from another owner and the sense of urgency was very different. I won’t get into details because that was not my experience. The infinity pool was also breathtaking and watching the sunset from my room looked like a postcard. The place is secured and have a 24 hour guard at the gate. You can walk anywhere on the premise and you feel safe. My teen was going back and forth all times of the day and not once did she feel scared. The rooms are spacious and equipped with everything you need but the food. I suggest you eat out because it’s chesper. We had a family of 4 and I didn’t cook once. I cook everyday at home but didn’t need too because the food was reasonable. Besides my family was all about giving back to help the economy. We ate out and we shopped. Hope this review will help someone with deciding where to stay. Also you must rent a car!!! Even though many of the beaches are near you can’t walk to them. Enjoy PR they are rebuilding but it’s still the island of the enchanted. Thank you.

I can’t say enough of the beauty of this Condo.

  • 5 of 5

This is where I stayed and I can tell you that the location is perfect. You do need to rent a car to get around the island but a lot of the beauties is near by. The place is safe with 24 hour security. The room we stayed in is gorgeous and I felt like I was home. It's very welcoming and inviting. Judith is an amazing owner of the condo and I loved knowing I could reach her at any time with any questions. This will be my future vacation place to stay when visiting PR 🇵?🇷?. Even though I can ONLY rate up to a 5 Star I give it a strong 10. Examples of my experience... my cable went out one day and I contacted Judith she was on the phone with the cable company immediately and found out they had an outage and were working on it. It was restored pretty quick. Then the power went out and she called the electric company and they were working on the street lights and would restore the power. They restored that pretty quick as well. She's awesome!!!!!! This didn't affect us because we had day trips and when we return everything was all good. Puerto Rico is still rebuilding but I can tell you that you can help the economy by visiting and staying at a facility (this one preferably) and eating at the restaurants. Puerto Rico is still beautiful and the beaches breathtaking. BOOK YOUR NEXT VACATION with Judith! oh by the way the airport is 10 minutes away. (Aguadilla Airport) Can't beat that..... Even if you want to go through San Juan it's only 90 minutes away y'all. P.S. we ate out everyday but that may not be ideal for all but let me tell you the food is cheap so why cook if you can enjoy your vacation. However, Judith has the place ready for those who choose to cook. Just bring your food. Another great asset is the washer and dryer. Who wants to travel with sandy dirty clothes?! Love this place!
