Rio Mar Wyndham Oceanfront Villa

I haven't seen any recent posts regarding this property. I am considering renting a 4 bedroom villa at the end of July which advertises that villa guests can use all amenities at the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa. Has anyone been there during July and could comment on whether that is the case or not and whether there would be an additional charge? Is the property crowded in July? I have also looked into car rentals from the San Juan airport and find that a full size car appears to cost about $350 for a week -- much more than what I have seen stated here. Any comments or suggestions about that? We will be traveling with another family (a total of 9 of us) so any cost-saving tips would be greatly appreciated!

I am very familiar with the oceanfront villas at the Wyndham Resort as we vacation there very often. It is my family favorite place to stay on the island and we have stayed in many places. The oceanfront villas are beautiful properties with the best pools in the resort. They are like a luxury boutique hotel inside the Wyndham Rio Mar Resort. Unlike the hotel pools, the beachfront villas pools are never full and you won’t find there any loud music, drunks dancing all over the place, unattended children running and screaming. They are a very peaceful, family friendly place and the guests that stay at the villas are also different from the hotel guests. I have seen many couples looking for privacy and many families with both young and older children enjoying quality time together. You also very close to the hotel main building so that teenagers can easily walk to join the hotel madness. July is the most popular month of the year for locals to go to the beach, so definitely the villas are the place to stay. We have stayed at the villas on the last week of July and their pools are very calm.

We have always been able to use the resort facilities when staying at the villas. The boys go to play golf, we get spa treatments (we like to receive our treatments at the villa), go to the casino, we have tried the restaurants at the resort, but prefer the ones outside of it.

You do not mention which villa you are renting, but we are also renting a 4 bedroom oceanfront villa very soon. We went to see it the last time we where there and fell in love with the place. If the villa is fantastic, the master bathroom is to die for. It has a huge oceanfront shower, so you shower looking at the ocean waves. The balcony is also very big with outstanding views.

As long as you choose a reputable agent and pay by credit card you should have a big certainty that things should run smoothly in your vacation.

For a car rental here, the best prices are through hotwire.
