“Perfect for a short or extended stay!”
My husband and I stayed at Monte Sur from June through October 2014 while on an extended business assignment. The building's location is great, central to many places in San Juan, right next to a grocery store, several restaurants, and the Pinero train station. There is also parking for your rental car (which I would recommend as taxis are quite expensive in San Juan, and the train services limited areas). The apartment is nice, clean, and fully stocked with everything you need, and Lourdes is a wonderful manager. We only had an issue once in 4 months, with the air conditioning, and Lourdes responded right away and had a brand new unit installed. The swimming pool and 24-hour security at this building are an added plus. By the way, the wi-fi is very fast and worked well for me while working from home. Thank you Lourdes for a great experience!
Response from the owner Thank you for your review and comments as they are always helpful to other travelers. Please accept my apology for my delay in responding to your review. It was an oversight. We hope you think of us next time you plan to spend time in Puerto Rico.
We (a family of 4) stayed in the apartment in Jan 2014 for a week. It's safe and clean. The owner is very nice and responsive.
Response from the owner Thank you for your positive remarks and taking the time to write your review. We appreciate your business and look forward to having you as Guests again.
“Nice apartment in urban context”
My wife and I stayed in this apartment in San Juan for over a week across New Year's eve. Lourdes is an extremely kind and available person. She provided a very detailed briefing on how to locate the condo and all sorts of practical info on the apartment. She even allowed us to stay in apartment one more night when our flight got cancelled, a great bonus for us! We found the apartment clean and fully equipped, we had access to WiFi, TV/DVD and even the landline for local calls. The building is a massive concrete construction and could use some refurbushment. It is to be noted that the condo is located in a rather urban area in San Juan, therefore getting to the Old Town (where beaches and turist attractions are) would definitely require a car and traffic in San Juan sometimes can be very unforgiving. The apartment would work perfectly for a student or young professional, whilst areas like Old San Juan or more rural corners of the island may be something to consider for tourists
“Clean and comfort.”
We stay 5 nights here for the conference. The condo is clean, quiet. It is giving me the comfort of staying in my own home. The owner is vey helpful in communication with you.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review. We are glad that you felt like home and found the apartment comfortable.
“A convenient & comfortable professional's home-away-from-home fo”
I stayed for 1 month as a medical student, & found this to be a safe, comfortable apartment with secured parking, wi-fi, utilities included, & a quick commute to the Va hospital. Everything was as seen in the photos, with a sunny open-plan 1st floor layout, a nice kitchen, & a huge bedroom upstairs. The designated parking spot in the garage across the street was essential. The apartment is located in a large, safe, secured, fairly upscale complex, within easy driving distance of the large shopping mall, the airport, & major hospitals. It was surprisingly quiet, which made it a good environment for working & studying. I did wish I had a washer & dryer within the apartment itself, but there were laundry facilities located in the building. The owner was responsive when I needed to contact her. The check-in process was slightly cumbersome in that there was a long, detailed inventory list to fill out upon arrival, & the initial process of getting into the parking garage was complicated. Overall, this is a decent short-term living option for a professional visiting San Juan.
Response from the owner Thank you for your honest and candid opinion of the rental and your experience at the apartment. I appreciate you are very busy. The check list is rather long because there are a lot of items in the unit, which need accountability for. Future guests will benefit from this. Good luck and success! Lourdes
“"Home away from home" in Paradise”
My fiance (now husband) and I stayed at El Monte Sur for one month. It was a clean and comfortable two-level condo centrally located to everything you could possibly need. We were able to easily travel to all of the wedding preparation appointments and shops. The condo was safe and had 24-hour security guards, which allowed us to leave most of our personal belongings at the condo while we left for our honeymoon. Our daughter loved the park and pool located within El Monte Sur. It was basically a home-away from home, but in Puerto Rico.
“My expirience at Monte Sur”
It was a pleasure to stay at El Monte Sur, the place was wonderful and within the reach of many places in the area of Carolina and San Juan. The place was clean and fully furnished and the kitchen had all that we needed to just shop and cook witch helped save money on food. My wife and my children found the place comfortable and spacious. Despite the heat on the island the apartment was kept fresh with the ocean air. We enjoyed much in so little time. Next time I go to Puerto Rico or know of someone who wants to go to the island I will recommend El Monte Sur and your services.
“A tropical paradise!”
I stayed for 2 months at El Monte Sur Condo apartment. It is situated in a wonderful park-like setting with lots of palm trees and other flowering trees and shrubs. The neighbors are friendly and helpful. There is a small gym, a swimming pool, tennis court and basketball court. A supermarket is located across the street with a nearby pharmacy. It is close to Mutual auxillio Hospital. It is situated close to the elevated train station, Pinero, which was convenient along with a bus to take to Old San Juan or Candado Beach. The apartment is comfortably furnished. There is no cable television; but, there is internet service. The bedroom is air conditioned; but, not the rest of the apartment. The landlord response for problems is very prompt. Would I return? You bet!
We stayed here for 2 days after a cruise. It was a wonderful retreat, and provided a nice "buffer" before getting back to our home routines. Shopping was very convenient. Lourdes was very accomodating and helpful.
“Very good locatiomn”
The apartment was very centrally located. It is ideal if you want to visit Plaza Las americas (the huge shopping mall in San Juan).It is about 20mins from the airport and also about 20mins from Old San Juan, which is full of history, great restaurants and,of course, the designer Outlet stores. I will definately being staying there again when I need to visit Puerto Rico.
