Reviews for Puerto del Rey Marina
Best Marina I have been, 2017-08-19
Captain: , Marigot, Saint-Martin (20)

Everything was perfect!
We got a T slip in the maintenance area.
Customs & Immigration was efficient and fast.
Restrooms, showers, washing machines and dryers were in good shape and clean.
Marina people are friendly and efficient (i.e. they found a cleaning service in less than 2 hours).
We rent a car at the marina and we could go visit St Juan and go shopping (the marina shop pointed us to a marine supply shop for items not available there).
Taxi service was fast and friendly (i.e. they found for us an open typical restaurant (La Estacion, Fajardo)).
The PR GARMIN agent (Josue Colon - PR Boat works) replaced (at flat price) our chartplotter and calibrated our autopilot.
I feel that the price was aligned to the excellent service.

Wonderful Marina!, 2017-08-18
Captain: , St. Augustine, FL (30)

We stayed at this marina from 20 May to 10 August 2017 because we had to do a complete rebuild of our Yanmar engine on our 35' monohull sloop. We found a certified mechanic to do the work. This was a great place to stay for such a long time. We were on a monthly rate of about $0.95/ft/day, and the amenities were very nice. There is a concierge service to take you to and from your boat on the golf carts. You can request a lift, or just stick out your thumb at passing golf carts and the drivers will gladly pick you up. They have an air conditioned Captain's lounge in the main building with free coffee and free wifi. The wifi extends pretty well out onto the docks, but under a different password. The first Saturday of each month the management hosts a nice reception with beer, wine, and light snacks where you can learn what's new going on at the marina, and also give your feedback. The showers and toilets are quite nice, cleaned every day, but they are not air conditioned, so after a shower you are still sweating. There are not really enough showers for the size of this marina, but management is aware of this, and a new shower, head, and Captain's Lounge facility is being constructed out on the main dock. It should be ready by October, we understand. The entire staff is very friendly and they go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Security is extremely good with guards and personnel looking out for your safety and protection. There is a bar and restaurant at the head of the dock which is a great place to cool off at the end of the day and meet new friends. Sometimes there is live music at the restaurant, but the sound is not bad. Sometimes, other boat owners will play loud music or rap on their boats--it seems to be a contest as to who has the loudest sound system. But the instances were few and far between, and a gentle word to hold the music down worked well. Overall, this was about the best place we could stay for such a long period while we had our engine work done.

PDRM crew are great!, 2017-08-17
Captain: , Kailua-Kona, HI (10)

Nelson, the concierge, Josue (Sway) the dock attendant, the office gals and the many others at PDRM are all top notch. Excellent facility with excellent service. I would highly recommend this place if your budget allows. Thanks everyone - looking forward to many years of excellent service!

Big is getting better, 2017-07-21
Captain: , Dunedin (80)

Ok ,I original made a review of the glass half empty pertaining to this huge marina. Now is the time to be fair and objective. I have been recently approuched by the sales mgr. that all my comments are being addressed. The new showers/ work out pavilion will be adding more luxury in the very near future. WiFi is being addressed with running new fiber optic system so entire marine will be live. As far as things to do , there is still no Discos, or comedy clubs. The good news is Uber is up and running in PR. and no need to spend $60 for a car rental to search out some cute little bars and resturants in Ceiba and Fajardo.
Once again looking at the glass half full there are a few things that I feel are important to mention. The security is top notch in all areas. The cleanliness of the marina is top notch in all areas. Finally the most important thing that is top notch is the PEOPLE that work here.

Awkward layout, 2017-04-29
Captain: , Center Island, WA (160)

Obviously this kind of marina sprawl appeals to some but it's not my cup of tea. Every service is entirely so far from your boat that you've got to call or wait for a golf cart cabby for asistance to get to anything. Won't bother stopping here again.

Dehumidifiers not allowed to be plugged in unattended : Big issue on the hard !, 2017-04-10
Captain: , RStLYC (85)

We would not leave our boat again at PDR on the hard. The management's refusal to let us plug a dehumidifier in caused serious mould issues for our boat (despite the fact that someone aired their boat twice/week). Our friends also had the same issues last season at PDR. Puerto Rico has a very humid climate ...
Good spot though for a short stay if the boat stays in the water.

best marina we've stayed at yet, 2017-03-20
Captain: , Dallas (172)

SV Ruff Sea - Sailing Doodles from YouTube

Really glad we came here! We left the boat here for a couple weeks while we went home and felt really secure about our boat. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the docks are in really great shape, it's very a easy to get work down on your boat, and it's a great place to re provision before heading east. There is car rental onsite which made it easy to get to Sam's club to stock up! We are even thinking of coming back to store the boat for hurricane season!

Very professionally run, 2017-03-04
Captain: , Aurora, NC (128)

This was an excellent marina, with all of the facilites one could want. They have golf carts running up and down the docks, and all of the drivers were very friendly. The shower facilites are great, as is the laundry room, which has 5 washers and dryers, a big folding table and several chairs. There is a book exchange in the laundry room. The restaurant onsite is very good. There is a small convenience store on the premises, but you'll need to go farther afield to go to a grocery store if you need provisions. Ralph's Food Warehouse was very good. We rented a car to go there.
You may be able to get around the Fajardo area with Uber now. They just started in Puerto Rico about 6 months ago and I think are mainly in the San Juan area, but may have expanded to Fajardo.

First Class Staff and Facility, 2017-02-10
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (50)

We had our sailboat hauled out for the 2016 Hurricane Season and splashed in January for the 2017 sailing season. All aspects of our experience at Puerto Del Rey were extremely positive. The staff is incredible! Whether it be the dock master and hands, the concierge, the registration personnel, the travel lift operators, or the storage yard manager and staff, all were very professional, personable and courteous! The registration facility, restaurant, chandlery, snack bar, showers and laundry are clean and well managed. Courtesy golf carts eliminate long dock walks and facilitate easy delivery of provisions and supplies. Wi-Fi worked very well close to the shore facilities. We look forward to returning to our "family" for the 2017 Hurricane Season.

Wet slip & hurricane storage, 2017-01-03
Captain: , St Louis (1085)

We reserved a spot in the yard for hurricane season 2016. We arrived a week early and stayed in a slip while prepping (we're a 18ft beam catamaran so we were on the powerboat side of dock 9. Walkable. On dock 13 after our splash. Long walk but easy to maneuver in & out of our slip. Golf carts if you want a ride). The dock staff is excellent. The restaurant is a little expensive but the food is worth it. We lived out of the little market deli the rest of the time. Despite the West Marine nearby, the chandelery was very handy. Shanaz is the yard office was very helpful at explaining everything we needed to do for our first haul-out & hurricane storage. We stopped by the day before our haul and talked to Benny who was our lift operator. He was very receptive about discussing blocking for our PDQ catamaran and very patient about getting it level on the day of. Even the cleaning staff was helpful when I couldn't get one of the washers to work. Overall, a top-notch facility (which is good, because it's not cheap!). My only observations are that check-in on the marine side is LONG (although the friendly staff are trying)! They have to fill out a lot of paperwork, despite the fact we had forwarded insurance etc for our haul (and the same when we splashed. Repeat customer). Also, it would be nice if the showers were air-conditioned. (Despite fans, no matter what time of day, it gets muggy in there). Thrifty is no longer on site but will still deliver cars if requested (Beware: Allied has terrible Yelp reviews)

Reasonable prices to freshen up, 2016-12-31
Captain: , Driggs, Idaho (10)

Changing out crew in Fajardo. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lots of paperwork for a one night stay, but we'll leave all topped up, caught up on email, and hot showers in a clean facility. Unfortunately, the one restaurant on site is closed on our night here.

A solid facility for a stop, 2016-07-31
Captain: , PooleUK (973)

The visitors berths are invariably on the outer edge of the marina, which exposes them to the wash of the residents, who can be a little heavy on the throttle coming in. With a hire car or taxi you can find all you need locally. I can not comment on the services or boat yard. Fuel is at a decent rate but slow to pump. The WIFI is a little patchy on the outer berths, which are a LONG walk from the facility.

Great marina, 2016-07-24
Captain: , Newport, RI (190)

No thrills. The place is very secure. Has a good marine store and westmarine is about 15min away. Thrifty Car rental at location, but call to reserve. They don't seem to have a lot of availability. All employees were very nice and willing to help. Will be back.

Nice, but spendy., 2016-03-01
Captain: , Chugiak (1196)

Daily rate (less than a week) was $102.46 per day for our 47' cat (and we didn't hook up to power). Quite steep, but this is only the second dock we've used in 5 years. However, employees are very friendly and accommodating. Golf carts are handy for transporting heavy/cumbersome goods as we were moving off our boat - even have trailers to get all the stuff in one trip.
Lots of power boats around for fishing and some can be rather noisy during the day when they play their music while cleaning the boats. Wifi was horrible and could rarely get any strength to just check email.
Over all, a good experience despite the fact we were moving off after five years and were transferring it to a new owner.

Best Marina, 2016-02-11
Captain: , Hampton, VA (91)

There is nothing bad to say about this Marina. $1.25 a foot, free golf cart transportation down the docks, a killer bar and grill, and nice shower and bathroom facilities. Also free water!

Top Shelf Marina-top shelf prices, 2015-03-12
Captain: , Kemah, TX (395)

No doubt about it...this is one of the nicest marinas I have ever been in. Rates for my 48 ft sailboat were 1.45 per ft daily or $1.30 per ft. weekly. Loved it here but glad to get bck out on the hook. Sisco from Mobile Marine gave me good service and sourced a part I need for my dinghy motor...he does all kinds of repairs, though. (787-646-1170
Channel 71 connects you to customer service and they always's a long way to the office so call for a golf cart ride unless you just want some exercise.

Very Positive Experience, 2014-02-16
Captain: , Bristol, RI (772)

Came for three weeks to have repairs and tour island. Rental cars available on site. Marina is professional run and reasonable. Very good protection from tradewinds. Long walk from boat to land but provides great exercise to work off the beer. Good services for repair (carpenter at Island Marine is excellent.... replaced a piece of toe rail), awlgrip is reasonably priced (believe it or not), and mechanical work was of high quality.

Excellent jumping off point..., 2013-11-24
Captain: , Sitka, Alaska (10)

I come and go from Puerto del Rey many times during the cruising season and am never disappointed by the courteous staff. As other reviewers have noted, this is not the place for night life, but if you're meeting guests and are looking for a great spot to call home base while wandering around in the Spanish Virgins this is the place. Shopping (via rental car) is available in Fajardo and the drive into San Juan is about an hour, depending on time of day.

Nothing going on here, 2012-11-28
Captain: , Great Falls, VA (1092)

HUGE Marina, so big the staff gives up rides in golf carts to land. But totally lacking in anything to do. Staff is very friendly and helpful, but that does not make up enough for this being a rather non destination. You have to rent a car to get anywhere. But fortunately the car rentals (on site) are reasonably priced and that makes this a good spot to tour the large island from and do some major provisioning with access (via rental car) to stores and items you cannot get elsewhere in the Caribbean with most major US retailers having some sort of precense on the island.

Under rated marina, 2012-03-15
Captain: , St. Croix (161)

2000 hr tow by Sea Tow due to loss of power mid Atlantic. Javiar, the owner personally ran the boat. Outstanding, to say the least.

Marina staff, the next morning, bent over backwards to complete the booking in process.

Moorage at $1.35/ ft for transient, good food. clean.

Half the the price of the BVI or USVI and twice the service.

Five thumbs up!!!!!

Three for Three, 2011-05-28
Captain: , Baddeck, Nova Scotia (160)

I hasve just recently completed my third haulout at Marina Puerto del Rey and continue to very very impressed with the level of professionalism by both the staff and the onsiote contractors. Every effort has been made to co-ordinate haul and launch schedules to my schedule. The equipment is well maintained and the availability of skilled tradesmen and nearby marine supplies have made each experience relatively painless and stress free. As an example of their accommodating nature, on our most recent visit we were launched late in the day and took longer than expected to restart one of our engines. Despite the fact that the fuel attendants were gone for the day the marina staff contacted the boatyard manager who returned and opened the refuel station so we could depart at first light the next day. Parcels delivered to the marina were delivered directly to the boat and despite a ten month interval between my last two visits staff remembered and addressed me by name.
A downside? Despite a large number of resident boats there is really very little social activity and the restruant is not suited to feeding working crew during the day necessitating trips off site to seek our cheap calories.

Favorable Impressions from a Brief Stay, 2011-05-18
Captain: , Seattle, WA (272)

We spent one night in the marina before hauling out at the boatyard and found the prices to be a bit high but the Marina was worth it from what we saw. The head facilities were clean and well kept though suffering from long term high moisture due to lack of ventilation. The golf cart service was prompt and the drivers were very courteous. We moored to an end tie so have no complaints about slip accessibility. The sea wall kept the water in the marina nearly flat during a severe thunderstorm that blew 6 boats onto the beach 4 miles away.

Marina Del Rey, 2011-04-05
Captain: , Hamburg (1494)

to big, no atmosphere, no place to stay. Cheap diesel.

Puerto del Rey, 2010-12-13
Captain: , Nanny Cay, BVI (11)

Transient slips NOT protected from Trade Winds. Maneuvering difficult as soon as winds 20k because of lack of space b/ pontoons. Lots of chop at berths. WiFi unreliable. Showers unusable (faucets taken off). Need a car for provisions.

Great facility, but...., 2009-06-03
Captain: , Barrington, RI (183)

Puerto del Ray is a great marina with modern facilities and is well maintained. The service my the marina staff is excellent. I would avoid the restaurant if you are on a budget (cheapest entree item is the $13 hamburger).

The approach to the marina from the South is well marked and simple.

I can also recommend chartering out of this marina....the firm at chartered us a 2008 Hunter 38 and it was one of the few Fajardo departures we could find.

Marina review, 2008-03-31
Captain: , Santa Cruz (243)

Puerto del Rey has good protection and good security, but is on the pricey side for the area.
