El lugar es hermoso. Alejada de la cafreria. El agua es muy refrescante. En la vecindad de restaurantes y demas. If you are a Tourist you wont be disappointed by this review. Its a relaxing type beach. No water sports just the sun, white sand and a sueding clear water by a non frequented beach.

We just our anniversary here in Playa Azul 1 and loved the area. The beach access is a huge plus and the beach does not get crowded. The kiosks are very close and I highly eating there at least 3 times to enjoy La Papilla, Terrunos, El Jefe Burger and Revolution Pizza. The drive to Fajardo is not far, so... More

Loved Playa Azul! Stayed in the condominium right on the beach and swam at Playa Azul every day. Waves can be a bit strong at times. Good snorkeling not far from the beach.Over all, its A nice quiet beach to soak up some sun!

We arrived to an iron gate at the front door barring the apartment from the outside which is nice. the place is not as white or clean as the pictures make it seem and definitely not as spacious as it appears. Some of the photos are out dated like the Balcony and bathroom. When we arrived we explored the place... More

Got a vrbo right in front of the beach. Snorkeling areas with beautiful fish. Weekend's a little loud with the locals but we didn't mind at all, we actually enjoyed it. Clear blue waters, weather was perfect. It was fun.

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
