About Jose Rodriguez
I am a physician and I have always been attracted to the ocean. I was looking for a place near the water with ocean views when I came across Palma Vista. Originally I rented it out and eventually bought the place last year when we enjoyed it so much. The best thing is the location, right across from Seven Seas beach and the set up with the rooftop terrace.
Jose Rodriguez purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Jose Rodriguez chose Las Croabas
This property is unique in the sense that it is a luxurious professionally newly decorated oceanfront villa but it was done unpretentiously with relaxation in mind. From the moment you enter the villa, no matter if you are in the bedroom, living room ,or terrace, you are going to feel that you are on vacation. To this you add a very beautifull beach right across the street , a relaxing pool and 365 days a year of tropical weather and you get the recepe for a great vacation.
What makes this Condo unique
What made me fall in love with the villa were its location, right across from Seven Seas beach, and its breathtaking rooftop terrace with its views and sea breeze.

It was exactly how it was shown in the picture, beautiful place, the manager Fernando was very pleasant and accommodating, for sure when we return back to Puerto rico this be the place we rent again, thank you so much Jose & Fernando
Nice beach front condo
We had a great stay with the family. Clean property, probably 100ft to the beach. Wonderful beach, clear water with very little waves or current.
Jose was accommodating and let us extend the stay an extra night!
NOT what you expect
The pictures of the condo were accurate as long as you looked ocean side however; Jose doesn't show the numerous run down trailers on the other side of the condo. I left numerous messages for Fernando, Jose's assistant. The following is a summary of the letter left for Fernando: If you would like me to recommend or stay at your property again here are some things I would suggest.
1. Be sure everything is operational and clean before your guest arrive. Buy a functioning lock for the front door. It was not enjoyable to spend five minute trying to get the lock to work every time we left the condo.
2. clear instruction on how to use thing in the condo ie.. how to turn on the tank-less water heater.
NO EXCUSE TO ARRIVE AT THE CONDO to learn
1. arrive to the condo and the AC in the master bedroom not work during the first four days ( have to wait for the AC work man during our vacation to get the ac to function)
2. No propane for the grill, after tank was delivered by Fernando we were told this was one of many Fernando has purchased during the last month. When we hooked the new tank to the grill we learned there was a leak in the hose that attached to from the grill to the tank. We immediately cut the tank off and told Fernando about the safety issues.
After telling Fernando about all the problems he repeatedly said they would do something for me and he would talk to Jose, NONE OF WHICH HAPPENED.
The last health issue was the nasty pigeons nest outside the master bath shower. One bird must have been sick because you would periodically hear it squeal as the others tried-to peck it to death.
I DON'T RECOMMEND ANYONE SPEND THE AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR THIS CONDO when there other in the same complex cheaper with just as nice view.
I gave them numerous times to-resolve the issues but I was not given that respect.
We are very sorry for this lady's poor review of our property but this was expected from the moment she booked.
Pre booking- guest insisted on us providing the price of a carton of milk and bottled water at the supermarket.
Also wanted some free services ,such as free golf tee times, that we do not provide nor advertise.
During stay-guest tried to threaten us with a bad review unless we paid her back a minimum of $350 for her bogus claims.
In regards to her complaints;
1 water heater- switch was turned off by them accidentally and my assistant just turned it on again.
2 door- no problem once instructed how to properly open with code.
3 BBQ leak of gas- guests left knob on and gas tank open. No problem after these were shut.
4 Trailers- We are next to a small trailer park on the mountain side. I personally do not see anything wrong with it as it is a quiet and nice small neighbor community.
5 ac masters- we had had the maintenance tech inspect and clean all units the week prior to guest arrival. As soon as notified, we sent tech to fix the problem which was only a loose hose.
6 Pigeons nest- we never heard anything about it but after checking, found nothing.
We provide the best service possible as we were the guests ourselves but will not succumb to threats like these and frankly, do not need these type of guests, nor we will allow them in the future at any of our properties.
Beautifully homely apartment in a perfect location
We spent a great few days at the apartment from where to can go to several top class restaurants to suit any budget that are close by. Some you can walk to.
The beautiful beach is just a stones throw away and offers a variety of water sports.
The apartment has everything you need. Very comfortable beds and a rooftop area to die for.
Definitely one to visit. Thank you Jose.
Jose was on hand to answer any questions
I booked 8 days for my family and we had a great time. My family consisted of my husband and myself, our two kids (3 and 5 years old) and my mother-in-law. Everyone had plenty of space and the area was very safe. The kids enjoyed the pool and the beach very much and we ate at most of the restaurants and kiosks nearby. The villa was very nice and the property manager very accomodating when we got there. The kitchen was fully stocked, the furniture very comfortable and the rooftop terrace was awesome day and night. All in all, we had a great time and will definitely book this property again when staying in PR.
We are glad that you enjoyed the villa, specially the beautiful pent house terrace. This is the place to start the day with a cup of coffee and chill at night gazing the stars.
I am happy too that you enjoyed the beach, pool, and multiple restaurants nearby.
Hope to see you back soon.
