We loved our stay at this spacious property with stunning ocean views from the balcony and master bedroom. The community is very kid-friendly with lots of onsite activities (the swimming pool, children’s park, turtle-watching, and beach toys were all hits with our kids). The condo is walking distance from the beach, although the dragon swimming pool (with an ocean view) is where we spent most of our time. Ramon was very welcoming, and met us at the car rental office so he could lead us on the 1-hour drive to the property. That was helpful, since driving directions in that area can be confusing. Throughout our stay, Ramon and Evelyn were very responsive to our questions. They even came by one evening (at our request) to show us how to work the electronic/electrical appliances as we were settling in. Evelyn provided all the information that was necessary, including information about a baby-sitter. The location, Humacao, is an hour’s driving distance from all the popular tourist destinations (El Yunque, San Juan, ferry ride to Flamenco Beach). So if you are looking to be away from the crowds, this is the place for you. The community is gated and very safe. Groceries are available at a WalMart supercenter that is 4 exits away from the property. We chose to cook at home often. The kitchen was clean and well equipped with all the appliances we needed. It also saved a lot of money for us. The condo is in fabulous condition. The basket of treats and snacks was very useful and thoughtful, and the coloring activity books were a hit. The views from the bedroom and balcony are awesome. We saw the sunrise each day from our bed. Vieques Island can be seen on the horizon, along with a beach chock-full of coconut palms. All amenities/appliances are available, beds comfortable, beautiful interior décor (modern themed.) Thank you Evelyn and Ramon for an excellent vacation home. We couldn’t have asked for more, 5 stars!

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

We stay in Marbella for 2 weeks. Excellent beach front location waves sounds are gorgeous.The ocean view from bedroom and living room are amazing. in a clear day we saw Vieques Island.

Linens and towels were thoroughly cleaned. The unit is well equipped with everything needed to cook and eat.

Upon arrival we were greeded by Ramon and showed us all the faciities of Marbella. He helped us with WI FI connection and made sure all electronic devices were working.

Enough towels and linen for 2 weeks. water and dryer which we use very often, included laundry detergent.

The parking lot at Marbella is not limited to 1 car wich was very useful to us as we had 2 cars and a golf cart. Parking is free of cost.

Palmas del Mar location is excellent because we could visit el Yunque, Conquistador and bioluminiscent bay. We like to shop and visited Outlet Mall nearby.

Some seaweeds in the marbella club beach but we walked to the Playita ( small beach) and have had wonderfull beach days, walking distance from marbella. Also the beach in front of Beach Bohio restaurnat is very good.

Definetly we are coming back next year.

Relaxed Feel

  • 5 of 5

Palmas del Mar is such a great place, nice dining options and a relaxed feel. We made some day trips to El Yunque and Luquillo but we were always happy to return to Marbella.Our family traveled with little ones...We absolutely loved our trip, the villa,the location,ocean views.well equipped,excellent work art.

In advance we inform our needs of playpen, cradle and highchairfor my daugther. when we arrived everything was ready. Also complimentaries coloring books, crayons sand games, movies. teens had morey boogies game cards and dominoes.we arrive late at night and had a complimentary continental breakfast. escort complimentary service form the airportwas very during night in Palmas de Mar is not easy. Private beach in front of marbella is not the better but we stay most of the time in the pools.

We love our family vacation. Could not have dreamed of more gracious host

Great time!

  • 4 of 5

Our family (us + 2 boys, 9 & 12) had a great time in PR. We took day trips to old San Juan and had fun at the forts and in the city. did the BioBay kayak (bring bug spray and wear long sleeves), we hiked in the rainforest, and drove the country roads south of town. Great fun. Most of all we relaxed by the pool. There is a grill by the pool with great views and cooked out a bit. In the summer the pool was pretty empty which was nice. Beach not too nice but we are from Florida, beaches are home!

We rent from home away quite a bit and my opinion is this owner does not rent too often as I have some basic suggestions...

Include a guest book. We love reading where everyone visited from and often they leave tips on the stay or roadtrip suggestions.

Include more menus from local restaurants, especially delivery. Ordering pizza was a chore.

Include better info about the beach club next door. We receive differing info from the beach club, concierge, and the front gate about it. We ended up just eating there but the kids wanted to play in the mini water park but we were told we couldn't even buy a day pass. Owner had told us otherwise in an email. No biggie, just clarity would be nice.

If there is a grill onsite, have grill tools in the condo. Only plastic cookware was provided. Hard to flip burgers with on a charcoal grill.

Add another skillet or two. There was only one pan and cooking a few things at one time was impossible. We rent condos mainly for the kitchen (vs hotel) and like to eat in a lot.

While I never expect stocked pantry or fridge, some very basic items are nice. Mainly salt, pepper, and some sort of cooking spray or oil is nice. Hate buying those for a visit and only using a bit. We bought some and left it, hopefully they keep it!

Any more, specifying what type of coffee maker should be standard on rental sites. We usually shop prior to checking in and have to guess if it's a drip or single cup machine. This is drip so we guessed right!

MAINLY... better directions to get to Palmas Del Mar and especially the condo. They emailed photo directions (turn at this sign), but the signs are new in the place. They need basic step by step with street names or route numbers and directions (N, S, E, W). This along with gps are foolproof.

Overall, great stay. Pools clean and awesome. Grounds beautiful. Ocean just as much. Reading on the balcony with the ocean waves coming in with a cup of coffee is a dream.

We have grill tools in the unit and new skillets added. (THANKS FOR THIS RECOMMENDATION). Regarding the Beach Club we told you we are not members but you can have snacks, lunch and cocktails in the Beach Club Restaurant, which you did and we hope you enjoyed your meals.We regret that children were unable to use the beach club pools.

Unforgettable bachelorette vacation with girlfriends and cousins.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Ramon and Evelyn apartment in The Marbella Club. Location is excellent, just steps from the beach, the pools and The Beach Club. The apartment has a lovely balcony with a great view, a super comfortable bed and spacious living and dining. Also had a well stacked kitchen (appliances, utensils, pans,) washer and dryer, laundry soap included. Plasma TV, DVD player, Internet, WI FI and Music in the living and bedrooms. VERY CLEAN.

In summary, a great beautiful apartment with an excellent location in the beautiful Palmas del Mar Complex with excellence hosts! Thanks for the breakfast basket and for the delicious Sangria!!!
