The Marbella Club is easily the most beautiful location within Palmas Del Mar. When we arrived at Marbella we were greeted by a very friendly and courteous guard at the gate. We always received a courteous and efficient service from all of them.
Check-in process was very smooth. Parking is under ground - a plus, as the sun always hits hard in Puerto Rico, and even harder during the summer months.
This unit is very comfortable and in perfect condition. It has all the amenities you need to make things easy and relaxed.
The Marbella Club complex has two pools and a jacuzzi.The pool closer to the building where we stayed (the Dragon's pool) is the smaller one. Although both are good pools, the Dragon's tended to be less crowded and, consequently, stayed cleaner. You can have a very enjoyable time in this pool.
During our stay, the beach was rough, and in fact, the red flags were up a couple of days, meaning an alert for strong currents. If you are careful, or in days when the sea is calmer, you can go in and spend a very relaxing time in the ocean. The view is fantastic!
Overall, this area is fantastic for photography. If you like to wake up early in the morning, you can witness fantastic views of the sunrise. During a clear day, you can see Vieques Island in the distance. Palm trees, the ocean view, sunrises, clear starry nights (you can even see the Milky Way stars!)... this place is just beautiful!
Puerto Rico is a beautiful island with MANY places to visit and things to do. The owners has information (inside a basket in the kitchen) about things to do and places to visit. We were pleased with dinners we had at Bistro Rico Rest. (at the Marina) and the restaurant at the Golf Club House (Chef Gaby did a good job!). We enjoyed being there and visit with some friends that are permanent residents of Palmas.
Our only regret was not to have had the Club passes ahead of time and having to limit our outdoor activities for one day due to the passing of a tropical storm.
We definitely recommend this property and Palmas del Mar. You can make it as relaxing and peaceful or as active and adventurous as you want.
