Relaxing vacation in natural beauty
While the condo's oceanfront beach is not really accessible for swimming due to Maria we were able to pitch an umbrella & beach chairs next to the beach, great! For swimming we walked to a beautiful beach within a 10 minute of the complex available to us. The Marbella complex pools are now updated & working in a natural splendor. Condo was perfect, internet, wi-fi, electric, water etc. etc. We will be definitely be back!
Breath Taking Views/Amazing Accomodations
The Fuentes Property is immaculately kept and beyond exceeded our expectations. Million dollar living for a blue collar price. Kathy does a great job maintaining this property and is available to help you in any way, shape, or form desired. Other than two minor hiccups, this actual residence itself offers great views, a ton of space, just about anything you need is made available by Al and Eileen, and it is spotless (kids dropped stuff under the beds, couches, etc. and not a spec of dust of dirt anywhere to be seen). The pools were great and while the Marbella beach had some major erosion issues, the Palmas public beach ("public" only to residents of gated Palmas Del Mar was very close and absolutely beautiful (set up shop in front of Bohio Beach Bar). We highly recommend this residence and if we travel back to Palmas we will definitely be staying here again!
We thank you so much for your review. As long time hosts we have learned & still are constantly learning and therefore we do try our upmost that our guests have a happy, relaxing & enjoyable stay. There are times however that due to forces outside our power, as you noted, there can be "hiccups". Some beach erosion comes to mind.
We love your quote "Million dollar living for a blue collar price" as we honestly believe that it justifies & highlights our condo, situated oceanfront, in the lovely Marbella Club complex & the wonderful & tropical Palmas Del Mar resort, truly a great value. Yes, the Beach Bohio is a beautiful & a wonderful place to have a bite to eat, sip a drink, surrounded by the ocean breezes and the soothing sounds of the waves! As we do have many repeat guests please know that it will be our pleasure to welcome you back with open arms & as family.
Very Nice Location With Other Opportunities Neatby
We were there over the holidays and the owners, Al and Eileen, of the unit were very helpful with info via email and phone. Great view and great accommodations. Kathy, the manager, was always around if you needed something. If you are a golfer, this is the spot. There were a couple of cute, beach bars that serve decent food in walking distance. Unfortunately the beach was under repair so we could not use it. There was public beach access only a 5 minute walk away. You could walk from that public access along the beach all the way to the village and marina at the other end of the development. If going to be longer than a few days and not wanting to leave the area, I would suggest renting a golf cart. They were available everywhere.
Thank you so much for taking the time and for such a nice review. We have been hosts for quite some time now and while at times some issues are beyond our scope please know that we do try to do our utmost for our guests to feel comfortable, relax & enjoy our wonderful condo, the beautiful Marbella complex and the tropical beauty of the Palmas Del Mar resort. Yes, we totally agree, the ocean views from our condo are truly beautiful and special. As you mentioned golf, know that in Palmas there are 2 world class golf courses for would be golfers however also know that it has the largest Caribbean tennis courts, a marina and an equestrian center. I believe at last count there are at least 8 to 10 restaurants, a small grocery store and the Windham Garden hotel with a casino all inside the complex. Unfortunately, the beach is under erosion repair & hopefully it will be repaired and finished in a month or so and available for our guests. Thank you for mentioning & verifying that there is another great beach (they are all public in Puerto Rico) just a 5-minute walk from our complex & condo. A golf cart is a wonderful way to explore all the amenities of the huge Palmas Del Mar resort. It makes us so glad to see that our guests relaxed & enjoyed themselves while on vacation. We hope to see you, your family or friends in the future. Enjoy the rest of the year.
Great haven for rest and relaxation!
Nice property with good view of the water. Owners and their representative were very responsive and made our stay carefree. We were in need of rest and relaxation, and were pleased that this place enabled us to return home refreshed.
Our only disappointment is that there was no beach. While we were advised that there was some beach "erosion," there was no beach whatsoever and relaxing on the beach was part of our plan. If you don't need to actually sit beachside to relax, then this is a great property.
Thank you so much for your kind, positive review and response in light of this new existing situation and restriction. We are truly happy that you were able to still enjoy the natural tropical beauty, pools, relax and return back home refreshed. That is what a vacation should do. We are however extremely sad and disappointed about the beach being now closed to the public and all access restricted. We were in the last two weeks officially notified by the Marbella Administration that due to serious continued erosion, the commencement of the 1st phase of an emergency erosion control work was begun immediately and that the beach area is officially now closed to all the public & owners. And sadly that it will be maintained closed for the next three months!! The administration also stated that the 3 phases of this emergency beach erosion control work will hopefully be completed in 3 months & then opened gain. We do feel it will be so and happy that any further beach erosion will be now stopped as it is truly beautiful and can maintain our private beautiful beach. In fact I will be now officially notifying the guests that will be arriving in December & January of this new emergency beach erosion work and restriction. It does highlight however your wonderful character in how you & your family were able to understand the situation and still enjoy the beauty of this tropical area and the surrounding beach complex. If we can assist in the future please do not hesitate to email us. Have a wonderful year.
Spectacular, Beautiful, Unforgettable
Condo in Marbella Club at Palmas der Mar was beautiful, great layout, spacious, very nicely furnished and decorated, exceptionally cleaned, well-maintained, fully-stocked with kitchen apparatus, tourist information/guides and beach necessities. Rental was truly home away from home. The grounds were perfectly manicured and gave us a sense of tranquility and security upon our return every evening, everything was so true to it's pictures and description. Favorite memory of whole trip, sitting in balcony every morning, drinking coffee while enjoying a mesmerizing view, listening/feeling to sounds of crashing waves and palm trees.
Only drawback was beach, so close to us was not safe for swimming, we had been forewarned by family members of strong undercurrent, however no worries, there was a very nice beach in close proximity.
Recommendations for future guests would be directions to actual condo, not just Palmas der Mar and more accessibility for someone with disability in the shower and toilet room.
Thank you Kathy for all your help and to Al & Eileen for making such a beautiful place available, we really appreciated questions being answered before our arrival. We will definitely recommend rental to friends and family visiting Puerto Rico and plan to return in the future ourselves.
You Won't Be Disappointed
The Fuentes property is one we could return to for years to come for so many reasons. It is beautiful inside and out. As artists, we loved that they support local artists, you can view art in every room. They have a wonderful collection of works by PR and Latin artists. The condo is so tastefully furnished and very well-maintained. There is little they did not think of to provide for their guests, especially in the kitchen. Cooking was so easy with a huge selection of utensils, pots and pans, new stove and microwave.
We were four adult women and one six year old for 8 nights. The layout of the living dining and kitchen separating the two bedrooms and bath was ideal for privacy and quiet. The extra tv in the master bedroom was appreciated as the nephew could watch his programs in the living room.
There is a lovely and relaxing ocean view from the porch, the kitchen and the master bedroom. This unit is in the Andalucía building in the gated Marbella five building complex. Marbella is the last complex on the beach to the Northeast of the Palmas Del Mar resort center. The grounds are beautifully maintained, clean and trimmed. We used the pools daily. We did not have an issue with the beach erosion as we used a small secluded beach just past unit five. The location facing the Atlantic Ocean can be quite windy causing the water to be choppy, so using the pools was just fine. The best news, we encountered NO mosquitoes thanks to the wind.
We felt totally secure throughout Palmas Del Mar. It is not high season so we encountered few owners or guests in Marbella while there. We visited the Plaza for a few groceries and a couple of meals. We ate Mexican food @ Chihuahua which is decent, but it is more of a bar and needs a make-over. In fact the whole commercial part of the Plaza needs a make-over. It is run-down, more so than when we visited several years ago. Management needs to step-it-up to reflect the quality of the resort as a whole.
Thank you to Al and Eileen for making your property available for renters and to Kathy who manages it for them. We had a great stay and wished we could have extended our trip.
