I'll mail your comment sheet soon, but wanted to say thank-you. We had a wonderful time and the villa was perfect.  I'm sure we'll return and will recommend it to others.

El Molino del Quixote: good food, reasonable prices, and a world class setting and view. El Bambino is also excellent for good, plain, reliable Puerto Rican food.  Their black bean soup was a particular pleasure to us North Americanos. Our only complaint was the jet skis - on the holiday weekend.  They were ever-present and obnoxious.  But, other than that, this house and this place really is paradise!

Another excellent trip was an afternoon spent at Boqueron Beach, followed by dinner at Villa Parguera Parador. Unfortunately, we were not able to take the boat ride to phosphorescent Bay because of poor weather.  Boqueron is another quiet beach with calm waters.  Villa Parguera serves traditional Puerto Rican food at reasonable prices.  The flan was particularly outstanding. We enjoyed our stay in Rincon and will definitely return.

Finding  Mundillo lace is a challenge, but well worth the effort.  While in Moca, try the empanadillas from a food shack on the other side of the parking lot.  The empanadillas are stuffed with all kinds of seafood - fish, lobster, crab, octopus, shrimp... delicious and among the best on the island, according to locals.  Carina wanted to see some Mundillo Lace in Moca(town off rt 2) Great skill and craft. Pretty stuff.  Call Maria Lassalle in Moca @ 877-2011. The fruit stand next to the post office was terrific ... as well as the pastries by Ursulina Villanuovh(earlier referred to as Ms Sooly by another guest.  Call her @823-2512

The Island Queen snorkeling boat trip to Desecheo Island (right out the porch -- that’s Desecheo Island!) WAS FABULOUS!!!  We saw monkeys on the island, turtles in the waters, dolphins  round the boat and all kind s fabulous fish, including flying fish.  Joyce and Palmer are great captains and are wonderful people, kind, patient and warm.  Even a non-swimmer like me had a great experience! Call 823-6301 and just do it. We had a great time. Boqueron is worth an afternoon trip. Nice beach with water activities.  Best restaurant is “Lazy Parrot”.  The food and service were top notch. Lost about 1/2 beach to the waves on 4/12.  Left about a 4 four drop off to the surf but its rebuilding already on 4/13. The Caves (Camuy Caverns) are a must see for first-time visitors here.   Enjoy!!!

Had a good time again in Puerto Rico.  Had a good time swimming and fishing in front of the house.  Snorkeling with the “Island Queen” was excellent!  Snorkeling the “steps” is also worth the trip. Best restaurant in the area for us was definitely Sandy Beach Surf Club.  Look for the lights on the building at night!.. Lazy Parrot was also good. Coming back soon!

Hello from Minnesota!!

We had a great vacation here, came for one week and ended up for two!  When we arrived we had no beach, the waves were crashing onto the steps and house.  They say El Nino. The ocean has started to put back what she took away! Enjoy the island, the people are wonderful,  and we will return.

One of the best places to spend vacation with family and friends.  It has been a great experience.  The beach, the neighborhood - close to every need.  The house is a beautiful and comfortable house.  Keep it up in this good condition.  It has been quite an experience vacationing here at Sunset Paradise.  Looking forward to the next vacation.

A great spot - beautiful sunsets, shady palm tree, gentle surf, good snorkeling off the beach.

Sunset Paradise provided for us an enjoyable and peaceful week.  The house is absolutely comfortable.  We loved the early morning coffees on the balcony.  During our evening walk on Wednesday, we observed some excited fishermen cast a fishing net from their colorful boat.  They unraveled their nets against the seashore in a horseshoe shape.  In an instant, it was time to pull the net in, and pandemonium ensued!  The pulling of the net turned into a community effort - the multitude of people appeared from out of nowhere to help pull the net in.  The catch of the day was two dozen codfish.The walks on the beach in the morning were interesting as well - be prepared walk in the company of all the neighborhood dogs! The housekeeper, Ms Lydia recommended local dish, PASTELS, made by Ms Sooly at 823-2512.  We tried them twice - they were excellent! It was a great vacation, one we will remember as we head back to the real world.

An absolutely splendid place to spend a vacation.  Our two-year old really enjoyed splashing around in the water as did we.  What we will remember best is the profusion of mangos - wonderfully delicious.  Best bet among restaurants for Paella and other Spanish as well as local dished is El Molino Quijote which is open only on weekends. Hope to return.

It was definitely a good time to be away from home ... about a bazillion inches of snow fell there while we enjoyed sun and surf.  Notable events of the week: the kids two doors down the beach sold us notecards they made, the sun shone, the puppy next door came to visit, the sun shone, went for a (short but fun) trip in a sea kayak, the moon shone, the door closer fell off the back door, the sun shone, watched surfers and sent to the maritime museum at El Faro, sun shone on and on. We enjoyed breakfast at the Paradise Restaurant and dinners at the Lazy Parrot and the Landing.

We had a family of 13 in 2 houses here.  Wonderful time - Love the warm water!  We will be back! I'm sure and we would stay here again!
