What a relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Palmas Del Mar Puerto Rico at the Cohen's condo - Beach Villa 160.

The condo was excellent, and the beach and pool access was perfect. We also went for many walks on the beach and trails/paths.

Highly recommended

BEST TRIP AND CONDO!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our three kids just had a great vacation at this condo in Palmas del Mar. Palmas del Mar is beautiful – a great beach, large resort with really terrific golf, tennis, marina, horseback riding, restaurants, and a beautiful forest with a boardwalk past really interesting “chicken-foot” pterocarpus trees, tropical greenery and iguanas and birds. We really enjoyed the Marina where we took a trip to Vieques and snorkeled. That was fun and everybody just loved it, We even went horseback riding on the beach. We never did that before. The horses were calm and smooth.

The condo is in great shape. It was clean and spacious. We loved having 3 bathrooms for the 5 of us and 4 bedrooms. Each child had their own bedroom. That prevented a lot of fights! The furnishings were very attractive and we were happy to have all the equipment for the children. The location was great too. It’s right in front of the beach and 2 bedrooms have full views of the ocean. It is next to a great pool and close to the hotel – just a 4 minute walk. There were plenty of towels and sheets and the kitchen was fully equipped. The weather was beautiful - nice and warm, and the condo was nice and cool. There is a convenient grocery store in Palmas but for one real big shopping we went to Walmarts, 10 minutes away. It was a wonderful vacation and we plan to return next year.

Fantastic vacation/villa

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we pulled through the gates of palmas Del Mar we knew we made the right decision for our vacation. The beautiful landscape was mesmerizing. We were lucky enough to find villa 160 on vrbo.. what a find! Beautifully maintained with everything we could possibly need, from utensils to beach towels.. everything has been thought of. The villa itself was beautiful and clean with amazing views of the golf course in back and 30 steps from the beach in front, and a private pool right next to the villa! I myself loved playing tennis at the amazing tennis club, and my family loved snorkeling off of monkey island (where we were able to charter a boat from at the marina) and the waterslide at the club . Every night we went to a different restaurant.. one better then the other! We had a blast getting drinks and going to the casino . Our 21 and 17 year old loved the privacy of the two upstairs rooms and the loft in the villa. We felt safe with them going out on their own ( they especially loved the convenience of driving a golf cart whenever they wanted to go in palmas). Overall if I could rate this vacation rental and resort more then 5 stars I would.. couldn't recommend it more highly!

Best vacay EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

We love the beach, we love the warm Puerto Rican culture, and Palmas really is a little bit of paradise! We rented an inexpensive little get-around golf cart and toured all over--from the oceanside tiki bar and the fun casino to the unique botanical park and bird-watching tower. Such gorgeous gardens! Such magical sea views! We can never forget the silvery moon shining through the palms onto a calm, magical ocean scene.

Palmas has plenty of nice places to eat out nearby, and of course the Cohen's generous space is fully equipped for anybody who wants to cook, entertain, hook up the iPad, watch TV or generally lounge. There are plenty of beach chairs to walk over to the shore, and for exclusive pool swimmers, it's right next door.

We had no need for the high chair, extra beds and many other thoughtful features, but the flat is very comfortable and beautifully decorated with an appealing tropical flair, and there is a spacious, calm air about the place--vastly helped by good air conditioning. If you happen to meet the owners during your visit, they are most helpful and just as nice as their place!

2 sets of Stars needed for this review

1st I'd like to divide my review into 2 parts .

Puerto Rico is wonderful, the people friendly, the beaches beautiful, the weather, even in the 1st two weeks of May was spectacular. The forecasts are wrong 90% of the time. 2nd, the condo was not as described. It was advertised as as a 'luxury property' on both VRBO and HOMEAWAY. It is not!!! Deferred maintenence has made this place not worth the money to stay here. Peeling paint, holes in the wall, beach equipment rusted past the point of possible use, air conditioning that does work, but left the condo very humid and the floors damp. The furniture pictured when new was probably nice, now it is well past its prime, ripped at places under the cushions, the bedding was also torn in the pillowcases and bedspreads. I did not contact the owners, being an occasional user of Vrbo and Homeaway, I realize that it is a risk everytime you rent, but I felt it my responsibility to inform those considering it as a future rental. I don't know how others rated it so high, I know these issues must have been ongoing for some time now.

Owner's Response: We agree with our tenant's very favorable view of Puerto Rico and Palmas del Mar - Puerto Rico and Palmas are wonderful - the people, the Palmas beaches and the weather all are really great! Now as to his comments about the condo, it is, first of all, important that his comments don't agree with the many very favorable reviews our condo has received from tenants before and after his stay. The very few times we have heard from tenants with any problems, we have ALWAYS addressed them immediately. His review says he did not contact us, the owners, during his stay. He waited to inform us of his complaints until after he had left. IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING FOR US, AS LONG-STANDING PALMAS OWNERS, WITH YEARS OF FIVE-STAR REVIEWS, TO RECEIVE A COMPLAINT AFTER THE TENANT HAS LEFT. We were able to correct every item he complained of within two days. We will continue to be sure that we keep our condo in five-star shape. If he had let us know while he was there, these issues would have been immediately addressed to his satisfaction and he would have had nothing to complain about.

Great beach location

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the christmas holidays at Palmas del Mar and we had a wonderful time. The condo is just by the beautiful beach and it's just a minute walk to get there. There is also a very good pool area just next to the condo.
