Great stay at Playa Azul by Marco Polo!
Playa Azul condos are our “go-to” place to stay when we visit PR. Neighbors and full-time residents have always been friendly and helpful. During this stay, we rented two condos for our immediate and extended family. Although the building itself is not luxurious as the Puerto Rican climate has taken its toll over the years, the security, location and cleanliness of the condos have always outweighed any drawbacks. This is a great place for a family to stay and make its “headquarters” while on the island, especially if you want to visit the rainforest, Fajardo (for bioluminescent bay and excursions) and Old San Juan. Always enjoy going to Carabali for horseback riding and ATVs in the rainforest. Kids also enjoyed Yunque Ziplining. Grocery stores, Walmart, Walgreens, and restaurants (love the Pan Mas Rico bakery for authentic PR sandwiches) are all close by. We usually hit Costco (closer to airport) before heading to the condo to stock up on quality meats, produce, and paper products. Please keep in mind that the pool is still not operational after Maria (FYI…rarely used during our previous stays due to the calmness of the ocean). The amazing beach (nice sand and no rocks) right outside of the condo rivals any beach we have visited in the Caribbean including ones on Vieques, Culebra, and the rest of the island. It is important to note that Luquillo’s municipality regularly clears the beach of debris (including sargassum) and removes trash from the cans on the beach. The beach is very quiet on most days and beach-goers seem to follow the posted rules. There is a small reef and snorkeling spot for beginners to the right; the water is even calmer there for people who do not like the small waves on the beach right outside of the condo. My kids love to purchase the ice cream/gelato from the carts passing by. This was our first stay in this particular condo, managed by Marco Polo. The view of the rainforest and ocean is wonderful. Marco Polo’s team was very responsive to any of our communication requests. Although the condo is not extremely modern, it is kept clean and the furnishings were comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped which is important to us as we cook most of our meals while on the island. Basic supplies to begin our stay, as well as coolers, beach chairs, sand toys, and towels were provided. Thank you, Marco Polo, for a GREAT stay for our extended family!!
Great setting and view, plenty of space
Our family of five spent the week in Luquillo and had a wonderful time. The location of this condo/apartment is perfect for families. The property is secure and the staff are friendly. We especially liked it because we were traveling with two other families who stayed in the building. Our kids roamed around the property, went to the beach, played basketball and had a great time. The beach was fantastic. Not crowded at all. Beautiful water. The apartment/condo didn't have modern décor, but that didn't bother us at all. The folks at Marco Polo were very responsive to our needs. I recommend Luquillo and this property for larger families who want a clean, nice place to stay that is on the beach and minutes from the kiosks and rainforest. We would definitely go back!
Just as in the pictures, clean and all apartment equipment operational.
This rating should be a 5 star judging for the attentiveness of your staff and the apartment conditions, however the surrounding disrepair due to hurricane Maria not yet corrected gives it a 4.
From the apartment your view includes the beach, El Yunque mountain range, and the main roadway entrance. We took nice pictures from the balcony to share them with friends and family. The pool non-operational was a non issue to us, after all the beach is just out the gate.
The surrounding areas within the complex still show hurricane damage, however the surroundings are well manicured, grass cut etc. The apartment is very well kept, everything works and even have beach chairs, volleyball ball, beach toys for the kids, towels etc..., the kitchen well stocked just get what you need from the supermarket across the street. The welcome binder has excellent tips for entertainment and dinning suggestions. The instructions were clear, and to the point. Security personnel where very attentive, alert, respectful, helpful, specially Jose Colon, whom assisted us during our late arrival Friday night.
We can say we stayed at our home away from home. Thanks Judith and Violetta for your assistance, we will call again.
Nice views! Easy access to the ocean. Really enjoyed ourselves. Read the whole review though.
The apartment is nice and in a great location and did have water and electricity. We enjoyed our stay very much. When I thought there was a problem with the master bathroom shower a plumber was sent out the same day. Turned out to be user error, there is what looks to be a diverter valve for the shower, but it isn't needed, just the pull up on the tub spout. Also, the management of the unit is very communicative and responsive to calls and emails.
There are a number of things you should be aware of. First, this apartment faces the mountains with views of the ocean from the balcony and bedrooms. The balcony is open to the main roads to the west, which means that there is a lot of street noise. When the traffic subsides you can hear the ocean. The bedrooms have better ocean sounds, especially at night. Second, the furnishings have seen better days. The fixtures in the master bath were pretty worn and the light was not attached to the wall, just laying on top of the cabinet with exposed wiring. Towels were plentiful but there weren't anywhere near as many washcloths. There is a fairly new washer and dryer, so it isn't a huge deal. The shared bathroom is in slightly better condition. There are beach items available, but the wheel on the provided cart is close to falling off, so plan on carrying them. The entry door is difficult to open until you get the knack of it. Finally, the building and grounds are still recovering from the hurricane. On the 17th floor there are windows blown out in the hallway, which does give a nice breeze through the open door though. Also note that the pool is not operational as of April 2018 and the tennis court does not have a net or fencing around it, and most of the lights in the common area are missing.
We did enjoy our stay and felt comfortable and safe in this apartment and the surrounding areas. I'd like to give this 3.5 stars, but that isn't an option. 5 stars for the location, 5 stars for management communication/responsiveness, 2 stars for the apartment itself due to wear and tear. With updates to the interior this would be a 5 star easily.
Thank you kindly for taking the time to write this review. We are glad you pointed out these features in the apartment, as just this week we started working on renovations which were originally scheduled for last Fall and were unfortunately thwarted by the hurricanes we experienced last September. Some of the works include replacement of the main door, new painting, redoing the upholstery in the furnishings, light fixtures and all the works.
Of course we are always available to assist our guests during their stay and make them feel at home. For the next guests we will make sure there are plenty washcloths and a better cart. (We could have gladly had these replaced for you should we have known).
Once the renovations are finished we will be posting the new pictures and hopefully we will have the pleasure of hosting you and your family once again.
We loved it!
The the apartment was very comfortable and very clean. Annette, our contact was so professional and friendly and made it very easy to make all our arrangements. We definitely want to return.
It was a pleasure working with you. We are glad you enjoyed Montemar, even extending one more night to your original stay! We hope this is just the first stay of many more to come!
