“Awful experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2008

Absolutely hell. Stayed for 1 week in May and never got a wink of sleep. Our room was just over the bar it was suppose to close at 8 pm at night but never did. The rooms above us you could hear everything. The people that were above us kept us awake at all hours of the night. We asked if they would be quiet but were met with a torrend of abuse. We complained at the reception but nothing was done. I have stayed in Puerto Rico before and loved everything about it but this stay in the Barlevento ruined it for us. Would definately not recommend this apartment to anyone.

Just returned from 1 week holiday in Puerto Rico staying in the Barlovento Apartments.

During our stay 3 apartments were broken into. On one occasion the apartments were robbed at 2:30 in t he afternoon, on the other two occasion guest were woken up early morning to find a stranger going through personal belongings.
If you are staying in these apartments make sure that you are not assigned apartments on the bock with Apt 30, all apartments on this block are easily accessible.
On the plus side if your apartment is broken into then you will be able to use the receptionist from the apartment as an interpreter when you visit the police station, for a small fee of €40. This guy makes a fortune, why would he implement measures to prevent the break in’s.

Also these apartments are very noisy, and you will generally be woken at 3am to hear the bin men doing their rounds.
