The Westin Rio Mar Resort is located in Puerto Rico, between the Atlantic Ocean and El Yunque National Forest. It is set along a two mile stretch of beach in the municipality of Rio Grande which is about a 35 minute drive (or shuttle ride) east from the San Juan airport. It is both a vacation resort and a sophisticated limited access residential community with many different condominium home developments throughout. ThWestin Rio Mar Hotele Westin Rio Mar Resort offers horseback riding, two golf courses, diving and snorkeling classes and tours, deep sea fishing expeditions, restaurants, nightclubs, and a full casino.

The Resort and Casino opened in August 1996. The hotel itself is in the style of a Caribbean Manor House design that offers suites, a spa, pools, professional tennis courts, two golf courses, biking, water sports, a business center, restaurants, and meeting facilities. A set of new high end beach villas located just west of the hotel complex has been recently constructed and available for daily and weekly rentals. Suggest contacting the resort directly to reserve any of these (click

Most of our vacation home customers spend their time at the more affordable 'rio mar cluster' communities situated along the western perimeter of the Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort complex (click here for resort map).

The clusters are named Cluster 1, Cluster 2, Cluster 3, and Cluster 4. They are all golf course communities situated on a hillside and just short distance from the beach. Some of the homes follow the edges of the western fairways of the 'Ocean Course'. Two of the cluster communities (Clusters 2 & 4) have pools. A main beachfront pool with Gazebos and picnic areas is available for use by all residents. It is located just north of the clusters next to the ocean at one end of the 18th hole fairway.
