This was our second stay at this condo and we loved it. The place is very nice, though not luxurious (which we actually prefer). The location is great... easy access to many wonderful places of interest on the island and off (very close to the ferry that takes you to Culebra and Viaequez... the notoriously "difficult to get tickets for" ferry that we had no trouble with). Seven Seas beach, across the street from the condo, is just okay. It's calm, and great for kids, but there was a ton of seaweed in the water and on the sand this trip. Much more than our previous trip two years. I didn't like swimming in it but the rest of my family didn't seem to mind. That said, if you're looking to just relax in beach chairs and enjoy the gorgeous views, it's wonderful. The condo is also very close to a few other beaches (20-30 min walk to Hidden beach and 15 minute drive to Luquillo Beach). We did lots of day trips so we didn't spend a ton of time at Seven Seas anyway. The pool at the condo is great. We spent a ton of time in the pool early in the mornings and early evenings. There are excellent food options close by, our favorite was El Estacion (sp??) (amazing BBQ!). We had some minor issues with the water heater and fridge but Tere (property manager) responded immediately and it turned out to be no real inconvenience. The last thing I'll say is that Tere and the property owner treated us incredibly well. We were supposed to take this trip in November and we had a death in the family the night before we were supposed to leave. Tere and the owner were unbelievably kind and allowed us to reschedule for another week. We are incredibly grateful for their understanding and kindness. That alone is deserving of 5 stars and our strong recommendation... everything else is just a bonus. We highly recommend this place and hope to return sometime soon!
This was a very nice place with lots of room for the family to hang out, cook together, etc. Nothing fancy, but the condo was well equipped and clean. The location was fantastic, just across from Seven Seas Beach and short walks to some very secluded beaches and the nearby Nature Preserve. A short ride to the ferries to Culebra and Viequez. Shopping about 15 minutes by car. An hour from San Juan. Teri was very easy to work with via phone and email. We had a great stay in early January.
Loved our vacation & stay at this Palma Vista condo. Overall, we were very happy. The condo is very spacious & is just as shown in the photos. The number of towels and bedding provided were perfect for our group of 4 adults & 3 kids. The kids swam in the private pool every day & we enjoyed drinks on the patio, staring at the moon and dipping our feet in the pool after the kids had gone to bed.
The gated condo community itself is very nice. The community pool is perfect for relaxing & letting the kids jump and splash and swim. We also took advantage of the playground & the kids loved it.
The location of the condo is just across from Seven Seas beach and another small beach right behind the Cabezas of San Juan Nature Reserve. Do take advantage of the night tour at the reserve if you can! It's fantastic & a great opportunity to see the light house, bio bay, & dry forest. Both beaches are pretty rocky where you enter, so you have to walk down a few hundred yards to get to the point where you can swim. That said, the water is gorgeous and clear. We saw crabs, and egrets, and pelicans, which the kids loved. One drawback: there is quite a bit of trash/glass on the beach, which was depressing given how beautiful the beaches are. Careful where you step!
Just up the road about 10-15 minutes away is a shopping center with Walmart, Walgreens, & an Econo grocery store. There are few other stores, as well, but I didn't visit them. There are definitely some great little places to eat within walking distance & we also found some delicious restaurants just a few minutes up the road in either direction. We HIGHLY recommend Taska Olelelolai (www.olelelolai.com) in Fajardo for dinner. Best meal of the week! Check out trip advisor for reviews of other restaurants nearby; they're pretty much dead on to what we experienced.
Tere, the property manager, was fantastic & very responsive. She checked in on us when we landed & was very respectful our time & needs when scheduling a repair to the washing machine.
The only criticism I have is the lack of items like toilet paper, paper towels, & garbage bags. Only one roll of TP in each bathroom, half a roll of paper towels in the kitchen, & a single garbage bag. With 7 people in our group, it was just not enough. We'd recommend each bathroom have at least 2 spare rolls of TP, the kitchen 1 extra roll of paper towels, & at least 4 extra garbage bags.
That said, we would definitely stay here again!
Great location managment Terri was great we check in all was ther pool in complex was aswome the pool in our rental was great for kids there's really not much to say it's was great I just booked again for December
Great location across from the Seven Seas Beach. It was relatively easy to find. We hung out mainly in Fajardo and Luquillo, so it was a good location for us.
Carmen was easy to communicate with and was very responsive.
We were two families with young kids, so the place provided us with ample space for the kids. There were sand toys (we left some of ours too) and the beach chairs were great.
I agree with one of the previous postings, the condo does look close to as shown in the pictures, but is a bit outdated with faded sofa covers and bedding. There are plenty of cups, plates, pots and pans, but not much in terms of condiments or spices.
Overall, good value for what you get. Thank you, Carmen!
Eco tourism is all over the Island. In addition, the bioluminescent bay is less than 3 minutes away by car or 15 minute walk. There are only 7 bioluminescent bays in the entire World of which Puerto Rico has 3 and we have the best just minutes away from the apartment/villa.
Also, el Yunque rainforest is less than 20 minutes away from the property. Its the only rainforest in US. A 'must-see' while in the area.
Less than 5 minutes away there is a shopping mall with a Walmart, a supermarket, drugstores and many other stores to shop at. 30 minutes away a big outlet mall is waiting for you as well.
