What makes this studio unique

Palmas del Mar, Puerto Rico is by far one of the most beautifully maintained resorts on the island. It boasts an 8 mile pristine beach, two championship golf courses and the largest tennis facility in the Caribbean. There are multiple restaurants and a little grocery store right on the resort, making it easy to never leave the gates of the resort unless you are up for an excursion.

It was so wonderful...we wish we could live there all year!!!! It was a magical!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the 8 nights in Palmas Del Mar as a surprise for my husband's birthday. He grew up in Ponce and I thought it would be great to go to PR and relax and enjoy the island. We were happily surprised when we arrived at "our home". I loved how you could be outside on the terrace watching the palm trees sway and the beautiful fountains & pool. We took long walks in the morning and drove all over PR. We went dancing in the plaza in Bayamon, dancing in the plaza in Santurce, unbelievable lunch in Salinas and off to the thermal pools in Coamo and then ice cream in Ponce. Everyday was filled with sunshine and adventure. It was wonderful to come "home" to our terrace and very comfortable bed. We hated to leave and.... I am saving my money for next time. I would highly recommend this property.

Great location in the middle of it all!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time from start to finish...even with Irma passing through! 😬 Check-in and directions to he place were easy and thorough. Couple's Retreat had everything we needed...I'd definitely recommend renting their golf cart. We used it to go, pretty much, everywhere. Steven & Kellie were wonderful! They responded quickly and were very gracious when our flight was cancelled due to Hurricane Irma. We will be back to Palmas! 💜

This condo is great. It's very comfortable and the incredible, private roof top patio is the best part.

My husband and I absolutely loved, loved, loved our stay in Puerto Rico. The Couple's Retreat was the perfect spot for us. We enjoyed making breakfast each morning and enjoying it on our patio. The evenings on the patio were great too. The apartment was well furnished and the bed was SUPER comfy. I highly recommend the golf cart. We used it to drive down to the beach and visit the little bar/restaurant there - Beach Bohio. The Mahi Mahi bites were spectacular and you can't beat the view. Everything in the apartment worked well. We even used the washer and dryer for a load of clothes. We took a dip in the pool a couple of times in the evening. Everything was really nice about this complex and unit.

We had a rental car so we visited Aricebo, Old San Juan and El Yunque. All were an easy to drive to reach. If you needed items, the Walmart in Humacao was a very short drive. Everything was great and we would definitely visit again.

Bad experience

  • 1 of 5

Apartment furnishing dated, patio furniture cushions in disarray. Sliding doors off track. Fan doesn't work and was extremely dusty ( we had to clean it). Patio tables dirty, and floors were mildew. First timers, not impressed with overall experience.

Owner's Response: All furnishings including the full sized washer and dryer are no more than 3 years old (bed frame is 10+ years but it's a bed frame). We provide walk through videos of both of our Puerto Rico properties on YouTube which clearly show the furnishings of the properties. If they looked 'dated' why rent from us? I apologize that the fan was not working but wonder why I was NEVER contacted regarding (or ANY of the issues in your review). The next guest pointed out the fan issue and I promptly fixed it. I have a great turnover/trouble shooting team that I trust a great deal to get the job done but if I am not contacted there is very little I can do. I try very hard NOT to keep anyone's damage deposit and so communication from the guest is very important. In regards to the outside being not is a tropical island with a lot of wind this time of year, guests may need to rearrange cushions and hose down the patio and magnificent private sun deck as if it is their own house. I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. My team and I work hard to make sure everyone's stay is the best it can be even if its for only 4 days. I feel a review of 1 star is not really indicative of our property and more inline with someone with unreasonable expectations (glad I could accept for a 1-star review).
