We (Joanne & Jim) own another unit at Palmas Del Mar and have owned it for over 30 years - so we know AND LOVE this beautiful, friendly & safe community. We have traveled to more than 80 countries and this is our favorite place on the planet to RELAX.
Jim & Joanne purchased this condo in 2012
The condo is steps away from a spectacular Caribbean beach and has available the resort's facilities - swimming pool, beach club, 2 golf courses, 25 tennis courts (with excellent tennis pros, pro shop & exercise room), hotel, casino, horseback riding program, great new yacht club (with boats to hire for scuba or snorkeling), 21 restaurants (from a pizza place to our favorite french restaurant), Bank/ATM, clothes & grocery store, all on premises. Maid service & baby sitting available. NO PASSPORT REQUIRED FOR US CITIZENS.
Palmas Del Mar is a beautiful, safe resort that offers everything and the truly perfect place to relax - with a grocery store and car, golf cart and bike rental all on premises. But if you are the athletic type, lots of tennis, golf, exercise room, horseback riding (from beginner through experienced - on beautiful Caribbean beaches), are all right here. OR if you are adventurous - Palmas is near El Junque rain forest, Torreverde Adventure Park , Camoy caves, etc. So you can RELAX, or EXERCISE or EXPLORE or mix it up, all as you like. We love Palmas- you will too!!
This condo location reminds me of enjoying the south Pacific. Gentle ocean breezes, swaying palms and even close proximity to the beach, swimming pools, tennis, shopping and dining. What more could one ask for. I was apprehensive about taking my very handicapped daughter on a vacation like this but should not have been worried. This condo is perfect for a relaxing unwind! Do yourself a favor and enjoy!!!
Just stayed in this villa and everything was great. I have a family with 3 kids (11, 7 & 4). The communication with Joanne was excellent from the beginning and her new agent Francis was very helpful and even greater us when we got to the villa the first day. He called us several times during the week to see how everything was going and to offer for anything that we needed.
Also Sara the maid was very helpful and nice. We called her to clean the villa during our stay and she did a great job. The location of villa 241 is excellent just several steps from the beach and in front of the golf course. We had a blast at the Beach Club with the so many nice pools for kids. At the tennis facilities the Davis Cup was held and even my kid participated as a ball boy. The Beach Bohio was several steps from the villa and serves great Bushwalkers and Piña. Coladas along with great burgers and wings. We even played Beach tennis with a group of villa owners. We rented a golf cart to go to Palmanova Plana for dinner and Che's Daniel rest.
I totally recommend this place for anybody looking to have a great time in Palmas.
Definitely will come back AND very soon.
Our family has been going to Palmas del Mar for over 30 years, and this is the best condo we have had in all that time. The condo is very comfortable, with all the features one wants for a stay, including wifi and ample cooking facilities. If anything needs attention, the owners' representatives at Palmas respond quickly, as do the owners if there is any need to contact them. But the best feature of the condo is its location. Palmas del Mar is a beautiful resort -- well maintained, safe, and with a wide variety of things to do for children and adults. This condo is a 1-2 minute walk from a wonderful beach, with good shade for sitting out of the sun, plenty of sun for tanning, a food/drink stand right there, and nice surf for swimming and surfboarding. The hotel is just a 2-3 minute walk away, and its restaurant we found to be very good. We could easily stay there without a car, but we always have had one at Palmas and exploring the island from the resort is easy. We went to the condo for the first time last year, had a great stay, returned it this year, and anticipate going back to it in the future.
This condo was perfect for what we wanted! Family of 4 stayed here for 5 days. So convenient and close to the beach. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room in a nice living room and kitchen. We wish the kitchen had been stocked with more essentials (salt, pepper, oil, etc.) Laundry machine was convenient.
The best part was the beach. Only a 2 min walk away to one of the best beaches I've ever been to, from the warmth of the water, cleanliness, lack of crowds, to the perfect weather. Only complaint is that the beach restaurant only has very unhealthy options for food, and the restaurant at the Wyndham hotel nearby is not much better (very few options). the grocery store in Palmas is not well stocked and very overpriced, so we'd recommend leaving the resort area for Walmart and other grocery stores if you want to cook yourself.
Overall, we had a really great time and it was the ideal place to unwind. We visited Old San Juan for dinner a few times (great restaurant - Dragonfly) and also visited El Yunque, a beautiful rainforest (go during the week to avoid crowds). Highly recommended!
Just had a great time, for 2 weeks, at this lovely Condo. The condo was clean, spacious, and very well equipped. It was also conveniently between the pool, the beach, and the hotel. Palmas del Mar is a terrific complex with all the needed facilities -- 2 golf courses, a large tennis complex (25 courts), a beach club, a wide variety of restaurants, and much more. It is located on the eastern coast of Puerto Rico, allowing convenient Day Trips to El Yunque, Fajardo, and the islands. And last, but not least, the weather was perfect....80-90 degrees with a pleasant breeze. Thanks to Joanne and Jim, the extremely responsive and informative owners. We hope to come back soon.
The condo was lovely, perfect for two couples and with accommodations for a baby.
The minor problems we encountered upon our arrival, plumbing and electrical, were fixed within 24 hours.
Although visitors can vacation within the complex for their entire stay we chose to use the condo as our headquarters and drive to San Juan, El Yunque, Fajardo and the south coast beaches from Palmas.
A well kept secret: Bike rentals are available at the Palmas Real Estate office near the front gate and through the concierge at the Wyndham Hotel.
Palmas Del Mar is a beautiful, safe, gated resort on the south eastern shore of Puerto Rico, on the Caribbean, near the town of Humacao. It is a great place to just hang out and enjoy a spectacular beach, plus tennis, golf, horseback riding, snorkeling, a protected and spectacular forest, grocery store, rental for cars, golf carts & bicycles all on premises. A casino is at the hotel on premises. Palmas is also an easy drive to all of the places of interest in Puerto Rico - Old San Juan, the rain forest (El Yunque), Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park (with world's best zip-line), etc.
