Aquasol Apartments
Ranked #63 of 67 Hotels in Puerto Rico
Reviewed February 29, 2012

Arrived to be greeted by very helpful reception staff. The apartment was clean and enough room for a couple and would take a third person. The view from our apartment was fantastic and a shared balcony still provided some seclusion, unless someone walked past. The pool area was very clean and plenty of sun loungers. The pool is very clean but the water was as cold as the sea at the beach.The pool bar was great. Reasonably priced snacks and drink prices. The walk down into Puerto Rico is fine, all down hill, but nearly always got a 3 euro taxi back up. Aquasol is on the quite side of the main hills and you notice the road noise as soon as you crest the hill. The best place to eat was Planet Steak House and our favourite bar was the Harbour Lights on the beach front. We had no problem with insects, the cats are not a problem and the worst I can say about the apartment was the towels which seem to be water resistant. I have to say that I do not recognise some of the reviews which comment on the cleanliness of some apartments. We are already thinking about going again and will use Aqualsol next time also.

Room Tip: Ground floor may not give as much privacy as it leads onto the pool area. There is a lift to all fou...

The apartments are on top of a hill, so beautiful views! We had a ground floor apartment, right beside the pool and found it to be great. There were 3 single beds, one of which was a sofa bed, all were comfortable. The kitchenette was basic, clean and had a kettle, coffee maker, toaster and 2 ring cooker. The bathroom was fine, the shower was good, hot water plentiful. I know some people complained about the towels, but they did what they needed to do.... not beautiful, but adequate! The veranda was lovely, we had sun all day. The pool was immaculate, cleaned daily and the whole sun lounge area was also cleaned daily. There were cats around, we wouldn't recommend leaving shoes out on the veranda.... the male cat marked the shoes as his territory, thus ensuring we binned them! He also marked our childs lilo, but the pool cleaning men kindly washed it and returned it to us later., at night bring your lilo in or put it on the patio table! We would whole heartedly recommend these apartments, they are clean, tidy and at a lovely quiet part of town. It takes 10 minutes to walk down hill into the main part of town, and e2.50 to get a taxi back up the hill., staff are friendly, helpful and we think that for the price we paid for the week, it was excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms 00 to 08 are ground floor and their veranda goes directly to the pool area, great if your kids...

Minuses:
1. No double beds. 2. Low quality towels (mostly made of synthetics). Only one time per our visit (13 days) we got 100% cotton towels (and they are changed every 3 days). 3. Smth wrong with the kettle (chlorine smell and sometimes when the water was boiling lather appeared). We were boiling all water on a stove. 4. Bad quality water (chlorine). We were washing all vegetables and drinking only water from bottles. 5. Administration doesn't speak english well. Actually they speak spanish and know several words in english. It was not a big problem for us but still. 6. No one from administration lives in Puerto Rico. They have an emergency phone number but that woman is living in Las Palmas so if you will need some help you will probably not get it (e.g. we left our room key in another car and couldn't enter the room at night and there was no one who could help us). 7. Shopping center is down the hill (25 minutes walking back up). We were renting a car so it was not a problem for us. Also there are a lot of taxis down there so if you are tired you can take a taxi to go up. 8. There is a bar in this complex but we couldn't understand what are the working hours.

Pluses:
1. Free WIFI (working only in the outside) 2. There is safe (for 15 eur per week). 3. Clean rooms (rooms are cleaned and towels changed every 3 days, bedclothes are changed every 7 days). 4. Place were to park a car for free. 5. Nice pool (but very cold water in it almost impossible to take a swim). You can sunbath beside it. 6. As it is on the top of a hill it has a nice view. Just book apartment not a studio. And not on the ground floor. We had the same floor as reception. 7. Quite safe place to stay. To enter the complex area you must have a key from main door (every visitor gets it). 8. It was very quite in the complex, no parties, drunk songs and so on. So you can have a calm sleep! 9. All in all we liked it an would stay for the second time!

Room Tip: Choose apartment one-bedroom not a studio. It has a view over ocean.

First stay here after being to Puerto Rico a number of times.

It is very basic but for the price I paid I was not expecting luxury anyway.

Towels and linen need to be changed more often. The apartment was clean but there were ants/flys dotted all over the apartment - no crumbs could be left anywhere and we did not eat in the apartment as ants were on the cooking ware etc.

Beds are terrible...like a camp bed with a sun lounge cushion (I am in my early 20's and not fussy at all) but my back was killing me after a week of sleeping on these beds!

The pool was very clean and the views were nice. Dora the receptionist was very polite but other than this there was no other staff or service really and sometimes there was a bad smell around the complex....

Value for money but I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: The regular apartments look a small bit better than the studios which are very cramped

Was very pleasantly surprised by these apartments. Booked on teletext holidays to go on a last min cheap deal and they were a lot better than expected! The apartments are up VERY high walking down to the main part of the resort was not a problem for us but we did get a taxi back up at night time (never more than 3 euros).

We stayed in a one bed apartment which had a kitchen/living room area, bedroom & bathroom which were all very clean & spacious. It was cleaned once during our weeks stay & towels changed twice. We did not pay for air conditioning and it was very hot at night, especially as you could not leave the window or door open as it is not individual balconies it is a terrace which runs along the front of all the apartments. As others have said there was not much in the way of cooking facilities which did not bother us as we found Puerto Rico very cheap to eat out in.

Pool area was nice with and plently of sunbeds however the pool bar was never open during our stay and there was never any music or entertainment so it was rather boring to spend a day there.

The main door to the hotel was keycard operated so very secure. There was a small supermarket a couple of minutes up the hill which stocked all the basics and more!

Would definitely return to Aquasol again & would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap break in Puerto Rico - as long as you don't mind a bit of a walk!
