2 Br/2 Bath, well-appointed Oceanfront condo
About Tina Butt
We are Kentuckians and while we love our beautiful bluegrass state, we do not enjoy the cold winter months which is why we spend our winters in Palmas Del Mar. Puerto Rico is such a diverse island with mountains, caves, a lush rainforest and arid desert terrain. Having so many things to see and do on the island was one of the main reasons we chose to buy a home in Puerto Rico.
Tina Butt purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Tina Butt chose Humacao
Hello fellow travelers! We visited Palmas Del Mar for the first time in 2012 for a three week vacation and loved it so much that before we left we bought this condo. It is located on the beach with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Crescent Beach has many amenities including three swimming pools (one just for children with a water feature), pool lounge chairs and an attendant to assist with lounge chairs on the beach. The gated community of Palmas Del Mar provides a safe environment unique to the Caribbean. The many amenities within Palmas Del Mar, including golf, tennis, fitness center, beach club, marinas, and restaurants offer guests a variety of fun-filled activities.
What makes this Condo unique
Encompassing 1550 square feet, our villa sleeps 5 comfortably, featuring a master bedroom with king bed and master bath, and a second bedroom with both a queen and twin bed and attached bathroom. A large covered terrace overlooks the breathtaking views of the ocean. The villa has 3 flat-screen TV's, free wi-fi, washer/dryer in unit, kitchen w/ granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, wine chiller, dishwasher, and gas grill on the terrace. The courtyard features three swimming pools, outside shower, volleyball court and, of course, the beach. The Palmanova Plaza has several restaurants and a grocery store. There are many sightseeing attractions on the island, including the El Yunque rainforest, three bioluminescent bays, Monkey Island, coffee plantations, zip-lining, and much more.

Unit was clean and very comfortable. Too bad the A/C got damaged when we got there. The owners were very responsive and helped finding a solution to the problem. I really appreciate their communication and trying to find a solution for us to enjoy the rest of our vacation. Will definitely book this unit again. Looking forward for our next stay at Palmas del Mar.
Exactly what we had hoped for
My husband and I and two grown children spent a truly lovely week at Crescent Beach. We had all wanted a balcony, an ocean view, easy access to the beach, and a good swimming pool, and the apartment hit all those marks. The apartment was very clean on arrival, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the property owners left us lots of information about Palmas Del Mar as well as the surrounding area. It was our first time in Puerto Rico and we just loved it (except perhaps for the wild west show approach to driving).
Sitting on the balcony with a book was a special treat for all for us, and I, in particular, loved swimming laps in the pools.
Second time in this villa
We are so glad you chose to stay with us and look forward to seeing you next visit.
Ron & Tina
Tina and Ron are wonderful hosts and respond to each and every question. We were actually rescued one evening when we actually got locked in the villa as the dead bolt had broken and we unable to get out . They responded to the problem and resolved the problem.
The villa is well equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing and stress free time. The view from the patio is outstanding with the sounds of the ocean relaxing while enjoying the sunrise or spectacular sunsets.
Jim and Sue

Wonderful location and condo
This is our second stay at this condo. Loved this visit just as much as the first.
I love going to Palmas del Mar and staying in Tina and Ron's villa. It has everything needed plus a spectacular location in front of the beach. Morning coffee on the balcony turns into meditation listening to the waves and daily exercise (if desired) is as easy as stepping out onto the sand and running along the shore. I try to rent this villa every time I go.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you visit again soon.
You can walk along the many miles of paths, relax on the beach, swim at one of the three available pools, play golf or tennis, go horseback riding, enjoy fine dining, gamble at the Wyndham Hotel Casino, go snorkeling or deep sea fishing, all without leaving the Palmas del Mar resort!
Outside the resort area, experience the incredible bioluminescent bay or take a tour through the El Yunque National Rain Forest. For the adventure seeker, experience one of the highest zip lines in the world. Bird watchers will also enjoy nature at it's finest within the interior of the island.
Old San Juan has its origins dating back to the 1500's. The San Cristobal fortress still stands guard over the old city. Stroll its narrow cobblestone streets while searching for that perfect gift to take home as a memento or stop in one of the many bars/restaurants to enjoy cool beverage and people watch.
