It was a real plus to get Beach Club passes when we rented Villa Familia. Our group used them to play tennis at a discount, visited the health club for morning workouts, and we all enjoy visiting the beach club for several of the days we stayed at your house. Thanks so much. The walkers in our group really enjoyed strolling the mile long beach every morning and the two golfers among us played the two different golf courses, enjoying them both. We found the house comfortable and large enough for our group. Using golf carts we could go from the house everywhere in the resort and several evenings traveled through the balmy air in the carts for dinner out. For me sitting outside with my morning coffee by the pool in a T shirt and shorts was enough reason to come back next year. Nice house, great resort. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: It seems more young professionals are traveling as a group including several parents and kids of all ages. Our home with comfort for 12 and a private pool fit this need to a "T" . Palmas del Mar has dozens of activities, including golf, tennis, beach club, beach, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, plus great walking and 15 restaurants of varying styles and cuisine. We're glad you enjoyed so much of it and plan to come back!

Private Pool, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Familia was a wonderful surprise! Much bigger than we thought it would be. Well equipped in every way and easily accommodated our group of 12. We loved the decor and the fact that there was comfortable seating in the living area for our large group. Having a pool outside the back door was a special treat…the teens in our group "lived in it!" We had great weather and enjoyed walking to the beach whenever we could. Palmas has extraordinary architecture and plantings, so walking was both a feast for the eyes and great exercise. We ate at three different Palmas restaurants and cooked in three other nights. We found the supermarkets up to American standards, but also enjoyed buying mango, papaya and pineapple fresh and ripe! Our vacation was a terrific break from the hard New England winter we are having. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Having a six bedroom home on one floor is a a great treat for a large group. Often larger groups must book several small condos in the the same complex to be together. At Villa Familia, everyone can be in the same place and dine together with comfort and space. It's great fun to cook the meal together whether on the pool-side gas grill or around the kitchen island. Everyone gets to talk and laugh and participate, but of course your bedroom is just a few steps away. No elevators, no steps, no running back and forth for the things you forgot. Villa Familia is a rare find inside Palmas del Mar. Thanks again.

Elaine From Boston Writes:
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

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It's great when our guests enjoy Palmas Del Mar, but also venture out from the resort to experience the beauty of the island and friendliness of the people. When people do this, they have a most memorable vacation.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time! The house was perfect! Everyone said their beds were comfortable. There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed having access to the washer and dryer. We appreciated having beach chairs, coolers, sand toys and beach mats available. It made going to the beach, so easy. The patio had plenty of seating and we all enjoyed lounging in the pool.

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!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. We particularly like it when our guests embrace both our home and the island of Puerto Rico, as you have. We work hard to provide a great deal of info for travelers who want to see the "Enchanted Isle" and set out to do it. We are sure you have had a most memorable vacation. Thanks for the tip on the nature center bio bay tour; we have been there several times but until now have not heard of this new offering.

From the Owner

Families and other larger groups can stay together at Palmas del Mar at the relatively low cost of $35 per person per night. For that price, they get a private swimming pool, a well-equipped kitchen and patio gas grill (lowering vacation costs by eating in), 6 private bedrooms. Compared to staying in a hotel with daily costs exceeding $150 per night and food a big expense on top of that, vacationing in this wonderful home is truly inexpensive and pleasurable. Any group of 8 or more will enjoy this home and be very happy the chose to stay in Palmas Del Mar.
