Playa Azul is great, conveniently located to all activities in the eastern coast of Puerto Rico. The beach at Playa Azul right in back of the complex is great for boogie boarding or body surfing. I read some reviewers complain that they would not go in the water here because it was too rough. All I can say is it's... More

My wife (and two year old) just got back from the property. I have no idea why people are so positive on this place. It was built in the 1970's and looks/feels it. Our building, everyone seemed to be over the age of 65 (with many that looked much older) and had the feel of a third rate retirement facility.... More

A few nights stay in the tower 2 reserved via booking.com. The friendly owner was there to meet us when we arrived (confirmed the "check in" time the day before). It is, to me, much better value than hotels. You get a large, well equipped apartment with balcony overlooking the sea, nice pool and access to lots of other amenities... More

We spent a week here before a cruise from San Juan. The location of this property is perfect for access to the rain forest, the fun of Fajardo, the bakery in Rio Grande, the Kiosks etc... We even did a trip around the perimeter of the island on $20 gas money. We also stayed in Isla Verde at a VRBO... More

I have stayed in the Playa Azul condos a few times now. It is a great place if you are not looking for the hustle & bustle of San Juan and don't mind renting a car. Even so, you're not too far away. The pool, basketball & tennis courts, etc have always been in great shape when we've been there.... More

Wow We stayed here for a whole week. The Views are spectacular and this 2 bedroom corner condo has all the amenities except air conditioning. The bedrooms are air conditioned though. With the breeze on all four sides the lack of AC only stuck out on the 2 hottest days we were here. Everything else was outstanding. We will be... More

Location Location Location! Close to rainforest, walk to kiosks (just up the beach.. or a 2 minute drive) - head to Fajardo 15 minutes away. Property is gated and 24 hour guarded, so you feel safe.... beach is calm and clean. 40 minutes to San Juan if you want to head there also. Greatest thing about Playa Azul - the... More

We enjoyed our stay at Playa Azul II. Hotels are very expensive in PR. We decided to rent a condo rather than stay in a hotel to save money. I would recommend anyone travelling to PR to take advantage of staying here. We did a bit of cooking there, but hey, it's vacation time, right? We loved the amazing beach... More

We stayed on the 17th floor, building 1. I LOVE building 1!!!!! The place is clean, security and staff are always around if you need them, the building was very clean and well kept in general. I loved the adorable cats in the parking lot (poor little guys) they don't bother anyone. We never got to the pool, the beach... More

My husband and I stayed in Tower III of the Playa Azul condominium complex. There are renovations in progress, but we didn't hear any noise, so I'm not sure when the construction actually takes place. We were on the 9th floor in a one bedroom unit that had new furniture and plenty of amenities. Having a kitchen was especially important... More
