Upon arrival via ferry to the island you can see the magnificent place you will be staying and already your excited. While this villa can be rented out separately as different units, we had 13 people and rented the whole thing. Every attention to detail from the art on the walls to the open air showers and staircase to the ocean shows you how much work went into making this the most beautiful place to stay on the island. Its an easy walk to the ferry and perfectly located to a super market (which is cheap and you can find EVERYTHING you need) and just a few short blocks to our new favorite bar 'Als'. All of the bedrooms are amazing, most have their own bathroom and the kitchen/laundry has stainless updated appliances. The pool perfectly overlooks the ocean. Although we had a small problem with its filtering, a person was sent out to fix the problem within a day. I warn you to be careful the whole house is carpeted in marble and it can cause some very slippery surfaces, be sure to pack some rubber flip flops. The owners provide Kayaks for you to take out on the ocean for little adventures, its nice to have free amenities for those days you just wanna hang at the house.
As for getting around the island, car rentals are not exactly cheap (about $95 a day with gas and taxes). We decided to rent a mix of Mopeds and cars one day to further explore the island and check out the nicer beaches (Red beach has such amazing sand and water, while Navio has waves and the piers near Sun Bay are great for jumping off) Esperanza is only about 5-10 minutes away and while you can take a publico (taxi) they are unreliable for randomly picking you up. So get a phone number and schedule your pick-up drop off times, the cost of a publico is $3 per person. Esperanza is certainly more a place for its nightlife, but when you travel with 13 people you can make a party anywhere you go. Overall it was a great experience and If we go back to PR in the future we would love to stay here again :)
