Sandy Hills Condo is a nice place that is about an hour outside of San Juan. Alot of the advertisement for the building is a bit exagerated or implies more than what you might think, but it is a good condo that is a short trip from San Juan. If you are looking for a quite place away from the city, this is a good spot.
Alot of the ammenities that the condo advertises are a bit exagerated. First, the private beach is not good for swimming. Their are several rocks and other formations that make the beach unattractive for any swimming\snorkling\body boarding. Also, the rec rooom is small and does not contain alot of equipment. If you are someone who is diehard about working out while on vacation, this is not the place for you.
Finally, the neighborhood just outside of the condo gates is a bit rough. However, about 1 block away is the town square with resaurants and bakeries, and is noticably a better then around the condo. My family walked from the condo to the town square several times without anyone bothering us. However, it is something to note and could be a problem.
Overall, we used the condo as a place to stay and get some quite time. When we wanted to go to the beach or visit anywhere else on the island, we would drive there. Luquillo is a small town and is perfect for a relaxing vacation away from the city. The ocean views from the balconey of our condo were great. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a place outside the city.
