Palmas del Mar -- Crescent Cove
Submitted: August 6, 2012

We have rented several condo's in various corners of Palmas del Mar over the course of the past five years or so and this three bedroom unit in Crescent Cove is the nicest one of the bunch. All of the rooms are generous in size and very nicely decorated. Two nice balconies. Flat screen televisions with cable in living room and all three bedrooms were crisp and internet worked. Tons of bed and bath linens, nice dishes and flatware, good cookwear and utensils, washer and dryer. Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. Really, the only minor negative I can think of was the fancy built-in microwave that didn't seem to work as well as the cheap one we have at home.
Grounds are well maintained and security staff was around 24/7.
The Crescent Cove development is right on a nice stretch of beach, in addition to having a swimming pool and a kiddy pool for the youngest grandson. The kids and grandsons spent most of one day at the beach club, just a few hundred yards up the beach, where there are several pools with water slides and other play equipment. Another day they drove to a jungle zip-line and sea kayak adventure. We all spent another day in picturesque Old San Juan visiting the historic fortress, shopping, and dining.
Palmas del Mar has some decent restaurants on site as well as a convenience store with more than basic essentials at not-unreasonable prices. The medium-size city of Humacao is just a few minutes away and has many of the stores and franchise restaurants we are used to in the Chicago area.
The rental agent was very nice and all arrangements were straight-forward. When the dining room light switch started sizzling one evening the agent's husband was there the next morning to replace it.
All-in-all very nice and we look forward to further rentals through the same agent.
