Peaceful, Relaxing, Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a wonderful 5 night stay at this Marbella Club condo. Our party consisted of five adults and one teen. The condo is as you see in the pictures but so much more. It is very spacious, more than enough room for six people. I must say the condo was totally clean, NO odor of any kind. NO ants or any other kind of bug to be seen. By accident we left a bag of cookies open on the kitchen counter one night and still did not see any bugs.

The selling points for this condo are the location and the expansive terrace. Our mornings began on the terrace (so relaxing) and our nights ended there. We were actually tempted to sleep out there. The terrace overlooks the ocean and palm lined beach. I did not count them but would probably agree that it is only 40 steps to the beach. There are two pools at Marbella. One is located beside the condo, the other one can be seen from the terrace.

The only negative thing that I can say is about the beach. Nature has not been kind to it and the resort does not maintain it. What beach there is left has a coating of seaweed. This is such a gorgeous place it is a shame that something cannot be done to prevent the erosion.

Marbella Club is the last group of condos on this end of Palmas del Mar. It is quiet and secure. If you are looking for a uncrowded, relaxing place to vacation, this condo is it! I dream of it daily and would not hesitate to rent this condo again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 y/o son and I just returned from a fabulous stay here. I booked this condo almost exclusively for the terrace and we were not disappointed. It is HUGE and the view is unbeatable. The sunrise over Vieques made my son's early mornings tolerable, and we spent nearly all of our time at the condo out on this terrace. There was always a stiff breeze off the ocean, so we didn't see a bug the entire time we were there. Note to parents of other small children: the terrace is completely secure. There's a latched gate at the top of the stairs, so no concerns about escapees.

The interior of the condo was just as pictured. 4 nice-sized bedrooms, 3 full baths (though only the jacuzzi tub in the master had a stopper so it was the only real option for bathing kids), beautiful views from every room, and excellent black-out shades/hurricane doors to block out the early sunrise (the property is east-facing). Everything was super clean and well-stocked (kitchen, laundry supplies, bath towels, beach towels, beach toys, even complementary bottles of champagne/rum/wine). We had none of the issues experienced by the other reviewer; like I said, we didn't see a single bug the whole time, inside or outside. We didn't spend much time inside, but we had no complaints!

The Marbella pools are fantastic. The dragon pool is just to the left of the condo. We were a little concerned about noise, but because of the breeze and the sounds of the ocean, we never heard a thing. We spent most of our time at the main pool, about 100 yards to the right of the condo. There were two "big" pools (~4 feet deep) and a shallow "kiddie" pool in between that our son loved. We had to be pretty diligent because there was an infinity edge dropoff to the lower pool, as well as stepping stones through the middle of the kiddie pool, but it was still great to be able to let him run around in the water (mostly) on his own.

The only minor disappointment we had was the beach itself. The water is rough and there's not much of a shoreline (though we heard this may be dependent on the season/tides). There's a little bit of a beach a little ways to the left of the condo, but it's covered in seaweed, and has a pretty steep dropoff as soon as you enter the water. If you are looking for a true beach vacation, Palmas may not be the best choice for you. We took a day trip to Seven Seas, but otherwise just enjoyed the pools.

Not recommended

  • 1 of 5

I would not recommend this home! The home is very tired. Paint chipping off the walls, air vents are discolored and rusted. There are spots in the wall where they have patched the plaster but not painted the walls. The slide controls for the fans and lights are missing the knobs with just the metal part left. The sofas have stains all over them. In the first bedroom/study off the front door there is a window seat which was covered with bug corpses. They have stickups and motorized scent machines but that does not overcome the general musty odor. There must have been at least 15 stickups throughout the house. The refrigerator really smells musty-I have never smelled such a musty smell plus there was a huge orange collection of spilled something in the bottom of the freezer. The dishwasher must be 15 years old. The place was very dirty, my sons' white socks were dirty within minutes of removing their shoes. However, the worst part were the ants. They clearly are aware they have an issue as there are ant bait traps all over the kitchen counters-yuk and all over the master bedroom off the kitchen. The first night (and only night) we stayed there within minutes of me placing some food next to the kitchen sink as I prepared dinner, ants swarmed the plate, glass and food. They were allover the counter and all over the sink. One even crawled up my leg. In the master bedroom, they are all over the floor by the window/door and even have migrated into the commode room. In the bedroom that can be closed off as an efficiency, they were all over my daughter's shoes and we had to go out on to the veranda to shake them off. Prior to retiring for the night, my husband killed a 1 inch cockroach in the family room. When I emailed the owner, she simply said to call her which I did but she did not return our calls or offer a refund. Marbella is supposed to be the one of the luxury complexes in Palmas and perhaps the other condos are better. We own a house in Charleston so I understand tropical climate and the need for vigilant bug control, this has been left without professional exterminator intervention and I would not want to have anyone else experience this disappointment. The place we subsequently rented is pristine. I could not imagine renting this home out in good conscience to an unsuspecting family knowing that there are these issues.

Owner's Response: All the issues that the quests mentioned have been addressed. No ants were found the day after they vacated the unit without notifying the owner. They simply packed up and left. As an owner we take very seriously these comments and all the issues are resolved as soon as possible. This is pour home as well, we use it when it is rented out to people we think appreciate it as much as we do. This guest NEVER called to mention any problems. Usually when there is an issue to be solved the guest calls us and a dialogue follows. We accommodate our guests as best we can, we attended to this this guest's every request prior her arrival.
