On the stunningly remote coastline of Yabucoa, Puetro Rico, resides the Lucia Beach Villas, which offer an intimate escape for seekers of exotic simplicity. LBV is a 15-unit hotel that was birthed from the dreams of Gary and Jeanette Pollard and is their idea of "a great hotel experience." All of the units are tucked comfortably in a row and are merely feet away from a central courtyard. From the comfort of their units, travelers can experience the hotel's waterfall.
Each LBV unit has a private master bedroom that offers standard or double queen bed arrangements on the second floor. The second floor also includes a private bathroom and balcony. The first floor living area has a two-sleeper futon, half-bath and a kitchenette equipped with microwave, coffee maker, mini-fridge, stove and sink. LBV also has a hospitality staff present every day for anything tourists may need.
LBV's locality is subject to an array of natural and manmade attractions. Those seeking a big resort experience can visit the Palmas Del Mar, which has two 18-hole golf courses, equestrian center and restaurants, and offers marina accommodations for snorkeling, diving and fishing trips.
To the north of the hotel, Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Preserve offers lagoons, coral reefs and thalassia beds. A bit further north, tourists can take hikes through waterfalls and turrets at the world-renowned El Yunque Tropical Rainforest. An hour away in San Juan, popular attractions such as the Bacardi Rum Tour await to be consumed, while all souvenir needs can be met with a "world-class shopping" experience at Plaza las Americas.
