A week in paradise! Visit PR now, stay here, don't wait!

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to start out by thanking Dr. Juan for letting us stay in his beautifully remodeled condo on the beach! Being from South FL, we know how bad hurricanes can be. I worked down in the Keys after Hurricane Irma and saw the destruction this past year had up and down our coast. That being said, we were a bit unsure what our trip to PR would be like after Hurricane Maria hit the island. With the lack of reviews from other vacationers, we basically took our chances and hoped for the best.

Flights booked and many hotels unavailable to the public, just 3 days before our trip we stumbled across this condo in Luquillo. From the first message, Juan was very responsive and answered all of our questions in a very timely manner. He assured us that the area had all the utilities restored and we would have a great time visiting PR, he was right!

After touching down at the SJU airport, the drive to Juan's condo was an easy 30 minutes long. Cell phones work fine and google maps will guide you everywhere. The property the condo is located at is fenced in and has security in both the parking lot and lobby of the building. We never felt unsafe during our trip or on the property and everyone we met there was friendly to us. The beach is steps away and a walk in either direction will get you to a stretch of beach all to yourself.

Upon entering the condo using the instructions Juan sent to us, we were very happy to find that the pictures listed on VRBO matched exactly what we found. The condo was not damaged from Maria and the views were spectacular. There is just about everything you need in the unit including a laundry machine. Across the main street is an Amigo Supermarket, McDonalds, Wendys, Walgreens, and about 10 minutes down the road is a Walmart. If anything that we needed was missing during the trip, we could easily buy it at one of the nearby stores.

The hurricane certainly hit the island hard and it is clear that they are still on the path to fully recovering. Some street lights are still out, so you will have to be careful driving. Some places in the mountains are still struggling with power but we only had two brief outages while they were fixing the building, we were notified beforehand. There is plenty of food, gas, water, and everything else you will need.

I can assure you that you will NOT regret visiting PR now. We will definitely be staying here again soon to finish our exploration of the island and surrounding islands!

Thanks Juan!

What a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here for a week. We absolutely loved the condo! It was so clean and well organized, and it had everything we needed for our stay: coolers, sturdy beach chairs, tote bags, towels, beach towels, washer and dryer, a CD player for our tunes, lightning fast WIFI- they have it all. It was hot all week, but with the ocean breezes and a tower fan, we never even turned on the AC. The king sized bed was so comfortable and we had everything we needed in the kitchen as well. We will definitely be back!

Stop searching and rent this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Playa Azul for the location and rented Dr. Juan's apartment based on the reviews here, and were not disappointed! The building itself is about as close to the water as you can get, and the view is stunning from every room. Even with the windows closed and the AC running, you can hear the ocean at night We had rainy weather, but we sat on the balcony and read our books and it almost felt like we were still on the beach. The beach is right in front of the building, about 30 yards, and has good waves for body surfing but might be a little rough for little kids. There were people there every day but it was never crowded and you can make camp there for the day if you wish. Palm trees provide a shady area if you aren't into the sun. If you like walking on the beach, you can go one direction to Luquillo Beach for calm water, a yummy junk food lunch and pina coladas, or you can walk the other direction past "downtown" and a surfing area to a beautiful undeveloped beach that goes on for miles. There are LOTS of good restaurants close by. We especially enjoyed Pasta y Pueblo and Aroma (in town), and Teruno and La Parilla (at the Kioskos), but there were several others recommended by the condo owner that were great as well.

The condo itself has been is very updated and modern. I think it is one of, if not the best, units in the complex. The King bed is very comfy, and the kitchen is one of the best equipped I have ever rented for a vacation. There are plenty of fluffy towels, beach chairs, a cooler and other items available, and the condo is spotlessly clean. The patio doors fold open to catch the breeze and the sound of the waves, so you feel like you are outside even when you aren't. The entire complex, while older, is very clean, well maintained, quiet, and safe. Someone was always mopping floors or washing windows. The parking lot is gated and guarded, and the grounds can only be accessed with a key. There is a pool and common area, but we never used either. We had some family medical issues that kept us from reserving our trip until the last minute, but the owner is easy to communicate with, very warm and helpful. You would need to be there a month to do all of the things that he recommends! It was really a treat to stay at Casa Azul; if you are reading this you need to stop shopping and book this unit before it is gone!.

Perfect location and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was very nice and clean and best part was directly overlooking the ocean. The beach was clean and great for jumping over the waves and boogie boarding. It is definately a beach for locals more than tourists which we liked. It is not far from the ferry and a trip to Culebera is a must. I would recommend this stay if you are not a big city person like we are not.
