Steve Johnson purchased this Condo in 2015

It was wonderful, very nice place
We loved the place and the beach
Modern, Spacious and great location.
The property is spacious and modern, compared to others at Palm De Mar. It was clean and very presentable. The beds are comfortable and roomy. The kitchen has all the comforts of being home. The location of the property was great since it's walking distance to the beach, pools and casino. We really enjoyed our stay at this property.
Was a nice property. Very clean and comfortable. Very close to ocean and hotel.
The condo was great, very clean and well stocked. Nice big TV's in both bedrooms and living room, ceiling fans and amazing AC! The view was a beautiful treat to wake up to every morning. Once we landed we called Rico and it was all smooth from there. He was there to greet us, help us with luggage and answer any questions we had about the rental or anything in Puerto Rico. He encouraged us to call with any questions and not to hesitate if we needed anything. Well, he was simply amazing every text was answered immediately and he was so gratuitous and nice no matter how needy we were:) I have used VRBO for years and have never received such superb service throughout the stay. We didn't expect it but we were very grateful for it. Thank you Rico for a wonderful stay, we really appreciated all your effort and kind words. The condo was amazing and we will be back, there was never more than a couple people at the pool, nice beach towels, extra linen, all those nice perks and so peaceful after a long day of boating and sight seeing in Old San Juan....but, the real gem we found was Rico. Thank you Steve, you have a winning combination!
A great place and wonderful people!
This property was really nice. Perfect for the four people traveling on this trip. We actually booked it very last minute because the original place we had booked in Fajardo canceled on us 3 days before we were supposed to fly out. We found this one and Steve worked with us to help us out! The location is great. The community was very nice. The beach was a little rough at that time right around the restaurant (which was a great littel place to eat and have a drink), but if you went just around to the left, it was perfect! We enjoyed the pool and the restaurant over by the marina also. It was about 10-15 minutes from the grocery store and other places like Walgreens. We really enjoyed the place. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked pretty well with what you need to cook. Rico met us there when we got there and he was great! He helped us get settled and helped us with the lay of the land. He checked on us a few times through the week via text. He was so helpful!!
We were there to scuba dive and we ended up driving up to the Fajardo area several times through the week and also to the Rainforest. So many neat things to see. The drive to these places was about 30-45 minutes, but honestly... getting to see some of Puerto Rico was really great. It is very beautiful! I definitely recommend renting a car if you want to get around and see things. The community has a lot to offer. Restaurants, golf, beach, pools, etc... It's very safe and just a wonderfully relaxing place! :)
In the end, we were 100% satisfied with the place and Steve was awesome to work with us on such short notice and having Rico there to greet us was awesome! I highly recommend this place. :)
Best of both worlds
I rented this condo while on a business trip in Puerto Rico. The location of this condo is perfect, it's the best of both worlds. It's close enough to the hotel (about a 3 minute walk) if you want to be waited on; from coffee to dinner to drinks by the ocean, and it's private if you just want to relax without the hotel bustle. At the hotel you can rent a golf cart or visit the casino. There's also an ice cream place that stays open until 11PM. The condo itself is very easy to enjoy. It's clean and has all the furnishings of home. The AC works great in all the rooms! I love the balcony that overlooks the pool and golf green. It's a nice place to relax at night and listen to all the sounds of nature. I much prefer the condo to the hotel. Steve has beach chairs and plenty of pool towels available. It's also nice to have the washer and dryer if needed. It's a nice condo for 4 adults as each couple has their own bathroom. On weekends, the hotel plays music by their pool and you can easily enjoy the music. We loved this! For people who love to walk, there are plenty of trails, you can also walk to Palmanova Plaza (it's a good distance, so you can also take the car or golf cart too) which has some great restaurants. I especially like Pura Vida. There's a children's park, and many other things to do in the complex. While there my daughter, son-in-law and grandson (10 months) visited for a few days, my wife also joined them. This was a last minute decision and Steve (owner) and Rico (manager) were very accommodating. Rico even brought over a pack n play and stroller! I also like that the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the condo. This worked nicely with the baby. Rico checked in with me while there to see if I needed anything.It was a pleasant stay! I highly recommend this unit.
You can charter a boat at the marina for deep sea fishing, day trips to Vieques or Monkey Islands and snorkeling.
Other nearby activities you might enjoy while in Puerto Rico include visiting Old San Juan, taking a ferry boat to the island of Culebra or Vieques, zip lining, hang gliding or kayaking at one of the bioluminescent bays.
