Nice Condo
We really enjoyed Villa Laurel . If you are looking for a place central to the night life of Old San Juan this is a great spot. A two minute walk to a fantastic spot on the square for Cafe Con Leche , pastries and mallorca. We loved the condo and it met our needs. Nice bathroom, two nice sized bedrooms and a small kitchen area great for breakfast but easily could cook dinner there. Two observations that you should know. There is NO view at all and there is NO living area. There is a sofa against the wall but it still is like you are in the kitchen. If you spend your time exploring and going out this is a great location. If you like to hang out at your condo when you are on vacation, this may not be ideal for that. To wrap up we totally enjoyed our stay and interactions with West Indies. Great folks to deal with!

Great location, very comfortable
It took us 2 years to actually get to Puerto Rico because if COVID. Start to finish, a phenomenal experience; extremely willing to move the dates of stay, not only for COVID but also to coordinate with an unexpected work trip. Everything in Old San Juan was within walking distance, and if my husband and I had actually woken up in time, we would have been able to take the ferry across the Bay to the Bacardi distillery.
