Private Pool, Great Location!
Our extended family of 7 was enchanted by our lovely bungalow in Las Palmas.
The property was justa s it was described and there was plenty of information supplied to operate the home.
Every morning as each of us awoke we wandered out of our cool bedrooms and quietly started our day with coffee and our 'first breakfast' by the pool.
We spent a lot of time lazing, reading and floating in that space, reconnecting and enjoying each others company.
The Beach Club was well worth the $15 price of admission. With lots of space around the pools and bars we played Volleyball, Basketball and rode the water slides like we were kids again...and the beach and ocean waves were only a few paces away for the more adventurous. They gave us towels and put chairs wherever we wanted and there was enough shade under the palms or umbrellas.
Don't miss Old San Juan for some local culture and great food. The fort has spectacular views for photo ops and the colorful old buildings are charming. We ate at The Parrot Club and had wonderful Mojitos and local fare. The guys even stopped into a cigar shop for some moonshine and smokes!
We did venture off to Loquillo for a day and enjoyed the beach there too. Especially the Kiosks and restaurants on the beach.
But mostly the charming Villa Familia was all we needed to unwind and reconnect. It has everything you need. I highly reccomend this property
Great family time

>fabulous time at both your Villa Palmira and Villa Familia. Your
>info on beaches and day trips was excellent. We especially enjoyed
>your tip about the trip to Monkey Island, traveling out with Captain
>Paco. He's a great guy! We enjoyed the snorkeling and decided to
>make a second trip the the island during our stay. Both houses are extremely convenient to El Yungue rain forest, and Fajardo. In Fajardo we kayacked at the bioluminescent bay.
We enjoyed our>time at the Palmas Del Mar Beach Club and used guest passes for the
>health club as well. In addition, the Tiki bar was our favorite eating and drinking spot.
Again, thanks for a great experience, your
>houses are extremely inviting and comfortable.
The tourist information was priceless! Having directions to the various sites, descriptions of the locations and driving times, allowed us to pick things we wanted to see without guessing where we should go. We ended up going to the beach at Palmas de Lucia and Seven Seas. We visited old San Juan and El Yunque. We had dinner at Los Bohios, which was wonderful! The owner was gracious, the food was excellent and the location was "one of a kind".
The two things we did that you might want to add to you list were La Muralla, a roadside restaurant, which is right before you enter El Yunque and taking the bioluminescent tour at the Las Cabezas Nature Reserve. I had read on Trip Advisor that La Muralla had the best pina coladas and great shekabobs.So after hiking and swimming at El Yunque, we stopped at La Muralla on our way home and Trip Advisor was right. The pina coladas are made fresh from scratch and they were delicious, as were the shekabobs and other food there. We wanted to see the bioluminescent bay, but nobody wanted to kayak. Luckily, I came across a tour offered at the Las Cabezas Nature Reserve that is a walking tour. The tour consists of seeing the El Faro del Fajardo Lighthouse, which was built by the Spanish in 1880, walking the boardwalk out to the bay and having the opportunity use sticks to stir the water and light it up, and then we went to see a dry forest. It was a great tour! Everyone really enjoyed it and we all learned a lot. Our tour guide, Carlos, was fantastic!
