"Such a wonderful property. Expertly maintained by local staff, Gaby and Zulma. They were so welcoming and we had a fantastic time. The house has four bedrooms in the main house and a fifth bedroom in the "casita," a smaller house on the other side of the lap pool. It's a little walk in to town, but we enjoyed the fact that it was farther away from the main tourist strip.You must have Zulma cook for you at least one night. The property manager, Monica, did a great job of meeting us when we arrived and providing recommendations on local activities and restaurants. We've rented many houses over the years and this one was definitely impressive. Excellent experience - highly recommend. For food we recommend the little lunch counter at Que Onda, La Lunita, and La Buena Vida. All very close to the house."

"A rental property is as good as the management who are willing to take the time and effort to keep it comfortable.
JOe and Fulvio do an excellent job in caring for this "home away from home".
From the abundance of hot water to the fully equipped kitchen this home's ample space with cold A/C in most rooms, and quaint back yard with a sparkling clean pool, will not disappoint.
Located close to small grocery stores and walking distance to some restaurants, this residential area is a refreshing change from the bustling cruise ship waterfront. We frequented the Paradilla Mission restaurant a couple of blocks away. Great food at moderate prices, friendly staff, and a unique setting unlike restaurants back home.
The maid service was impressive and included in the price!
One minor note, that it can be a bit noisy from the street traffic. It's nothing a good pair of earplugs will solve if you are a light sleeper.
All in all, a great place to come back for a return visit."

"this was our 4th stay @ palma real (1st stay in this unit). easily the best views in the entire complex. as a repeat visitor to palma real we knew what to expect & we were not disappointed. the condo unit itself has most everything you need. you will need to purchase condiments for cooking & extra toilet paper but that's about it. Gustavo the pool & maintenance guy continues to keep all areas clean. Carlos the property manager is a wealth of information & very helpful. the owner was very easy to deal with & answered any questions we had. on those days that you need to chill inside, the owner has provided Netflix which was wonderful as we needed a break from the sun & heat.
complaints - no safe in the unit (so you may want to find a hiding place for valuables while you out). the unit advertises a dryer, however the dryer does not product hot air (only cool air) as there is no vent. we experienced the same situation in other units. neither of these complaints will discourage us from revisiting palma real."
