Comments This was our first trip to Puerto Rico. It was right after hurricane Irma. We were in frequent communication with the dive operator we used, Sea Ventures in Fajardo and with the owner of the beautiful ocean front condo in Pena Mar that we rented. Both were very informative and helpful. Unfortunately hurricane Maria came up quickly forming in the Atlantic as we were flying! We had no idea it even existed until we had arrived in San Juan and were picking up our rental vehicle (which was a beautiful brand new bright red Jeep,). We were informed by the rental agent that a hurricane w ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here

Peter, I used HomeAway to book the condo which is in the Pena Mar Ocean Club in Fajardo. Once reserved I was quickly put in touch with the owner. The address is 800 Carr 987 in Fajardo. Her condo is # 1503. The building it is in is the only building that is truly ocean front. The others may have a view but from across the parking lot (it is built on a hill). The price was great for a spacious, clean, modern and fully equipped 3 bedroom condo. About $135 per night. When we learned hurricane Maria was coming we headed back early to San Juan to try and get a flight out. The owner Sheryl was very fair in the amount she refunded us. Through HomeAway the condo is listed as property # 4145116. Best, Joanne
