We were looking for somewhere in western Puerto Rico to take our 12 adult family members for Thanksgiving week. We found Villa Carambola on the internet and we feel so lucky to have found it. Often, what travelers see in pictures on a website is not exactly the reality they find upon arrival. This is not the case with Villa Carambola. The photos show exactly what you get. Six wonderful bedrooms with full bath, each one a great place to spend time. None of us felt like we got the "bad bedroom." There is no bad bedroom at Villa Carambola only amazing bedrooms and the large living spaces, well equipped kitchen, and especially the outside areas, are unsurpassed. The pool is lovely, the ocean right there and the views amazing. Even with 12 people, each one of us could find a place to be by ourselves or visit with a group of from two to the full crowd. There are so many lounging areas and four dining areas that seat from 6 to 12 people for meals. We met the owners, Shannon and Alberto, and they are very gracious and the property manager and house cleaner very helpful. The house is immaculate. Golf, snorkeling, surfing, beaches, great restaurants, and even the airport with flights from the mainland are only minutes away. Whether you are former Puerto Rican residents like us, or if this is your first time to the Caribbean, this is a find.
