We just returned from our 6 night stay in the 2-bedroom condo and we had such a great time!! This condo was absolutely perfect for a two-couple party with location, space, amenities, etc. There are large armoires in each room with hangers to unpack, there was a hair dryer available in the condo, beach towels, and having the washer and dryer was incredible.
Upon arrival, Martin was extremely helpful in pointing out where the local market was and a couple of spots we should check out. The market was right around the corner which was perfect for grabbing essentials, along with a couple of gas stations that have most of what you would need. We ended up going to a larger market in Old San Juan, Supermax, so that we could grab more of what we needed to cook a few dinners at the condo. Which was another highlight to this great space: All utensils, pots, and pans are available to make a meal inside the condo!
The absolute best part was how easy it was to walk in to the heart of Old San Juan. We did this most days at least once, sometimes twice, because it was such a nice walk. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes and you get to go by the Capital building and walk along with a gorgeous view of the water. If you don't like walking, the bus line goes right by the corner of the street and is only $.75, which was great for us to go to other parts of Puerto Rico. And then cab rides ended up being around $10 for our group of 4 to go in to Old San Juan.
The added levels of security were extremely comforting, also. There was a gated entrance before the front door entrance which made us feel safe, along with, the entrances not being off a main road.
Oh, and the local restaurant next door, El Hamburguer, was great too. We grabbed a quick bite and some Medalla several times and it was our favorite for a late night spot when coming in from town.
I definitely recommend this condo, we would certainly go back!
It is very obvious that this rental has been recently updated. All of the features were very nice. It was quite convenient to have a washer and dryer while visiting the beach. Having a second bedroom available was also a bonus feature over a hotel since this allowed our young daughter to have her own room.
The rental is located only 5 minutes from the beach (walking) and about 5 minutes (driving) from Old San Juan, so accessibility is great.
However, there are only a few restaurants nearby, and we had to drive to dinner or make sure we were out every evening to eat.
Also, while we were safe at the rental, it was uncomfortable being out at night. A higher end location would be great, but at this price, the easy access to tourist spots, and the additional space not available in a hotel, it worked out to be a good choice for our family.
