WOW!!! Has to be the way I start this review.
Jorge, (the owner of the villa) was SO nice and kind to us from the planning stage of our vacation. It was truly home away from home from the moment we arrived. The pictures of the property that are posted do it some justice, but once there, it is soo beautiful. We stayed at Palmas del Mar in 2012 at a different resort, but hands down, this one takes the cake.. We had two nights with power issues, but it was a Palmas del Mar outage not a solo unit issue. We will definitely be keeping Jorge's contact info for future stays.
We were very happy with our stay at Palmas. The condo was very nice and fit our family of 8 with no problems. Jorge was very nice and even met us in San Juan to give us the keys. The only downside was the ocean but that is no fault of anyone but Mother Nature! We walked up the beach to the corner and it was much calmer and less seaweed. The pool was great and very clean and the grounds were so quiet we often wondered where everyone was, We enjoyed the close proximity to Beach Bohio and the Wyndham. A great time was had in PR!
This is a great place to stay with lots of space. We stayed here a year ago with just our family of four and brought along three additonal teens this year and didnt feel cramped at all. The villa is very clean and never saw a bug or ant in our past two stays...even on the patios. The kitchen has everything you need to make a gourmet dinner and there ia a grill for your fish or steaks. There are restaurants within walking distance and several more within a short drive. Jorge returned our texts immediately if we had any questions and would have taken care of any concerns on the spot, i am sure, if we had any. Crescent cove is beachside and has the best beach area in palmas del mar. This villa is literally a two minute walk to beach. The pool and grounds at crescent cove are immaculate. We felt very safe here. We never remembered to lock the villa and never worried about our kids exploring palmas on their own...day or night. I would highly recommend this villa and plan on returning next year!
Our family (my husband and I; our daughter, her husband and their baby; my son, his wife and their two toddlers; and my single son stayed for one week. There was plenty of space for everyone. We especially loved that each bedroom had their own bathroom. The kitchen was very well equipped. Because of the small children -- we ate most meals at the condo. We spent tons of time at the pool and in the ocean. We walked to the "beach bar" for beverages -- there was a place for the kids to play. The entire condo was air conditioned - Our only complaint was that the grill had an empty gas tank. We would definitely come back....
the house was certainly big enough to accommodate 4 people, but there were several issues that came up during the stay. The balcony door on the main floor would NOT open. Jorge insisted it was working fine before we arrived. A gal who spoke no English came while we were gone and jimmied it open. We had to close the door for the AC to cool the place and wouldn't you know the door wouldn't open AGAIN. after round and round with Jorge a repair guy comes and replaces the latch. clearly it was not working right (probably not before we got there either). the light fixture in the room with the bunk beds did not work. This was a fan/light combo. Jorge sent the non English speaking gal who said the chain you normally pull to turn lights on was missing. Jorge insisted that housekeeping saw the little small chain prior to our arrival. REALLY? she took inventory of the little dangling chain? for what purpose? to accuse us we broke it off?? so the gal's solution was to remove the lampshade on the corner lamp. It was ugly and frankly.....stupid. but I guess her thinking this would give the room more light since the overhead light didn't work, and they had no intention of fixing it. So when these people were taking inventory of the small dangling chains on overhead fixtures they must have missed that they had not put any toilet paper or soap in ANY of the bathrooms. So after traveling from Chicago we didn't even have the LUXURY of toilet paper or soap to wash up. Mind you these things are listed in the details of the house ad. it is definitely something you'd expect in even a cheap Motel 6. This then required a trip to the store...not fun when you're exhausted from travel. THEN there wasn't a single pantry item, not salt pepper NOTHING. I've never rented a home so poorly outfitted. In the kitchen there was one garbage bag and one dishwasher tablet. Its expected that we leave the house in the condition we found it. But that means have the cleaning supplies and garbage bags available. IM ON VACATION.....Im not there to run to the store to get a 12 pack of garbage bags, when I need at most 2. nor am I going to buy a 24 pack of dishwasher tablets when I need 2. rather than rent a home Id be better off staying in a hotel. I wouldn't stay here. Also the "grounds" were not very well maintained. The pool was CLOSED for 3 days because they couldn't get the pH right....The beach had so much seaweed, it smelled bad, and was never raked up as other reviewers said.
we had a wonderful time in puerto rico. Jorge's villa in palmas is just as described. very spacious with privacy for everyone. Palmas is a huge beautiful resort. Main gate has security as well as each group of condos, we always felt secure. this coast is beautiful which is a trade off for about a 50 minute drive to San Juan and El Yunque. Really enjoyed our visit, and Jorge is very attentive to any concerns or questions both prior to and during our stay.
