Thanks for the amazing views it was so beautiful!! We got up at 6:30 and walked the beach one last time and took one last dip in ocean (it was a bit calmer today).. Met Nancy and she was very sweet! We would gladly be back sometime!! Was beautiful!! Thanks again, Alan and Cindy March 2019
Great time to come to PR! 5 Stars (Post Maria)
Our owners said - "come to Puerto Rico and help this territory of the US." We agree! We enjoyed our stay and the beach was awesome. Boogie boarded many times and the score was waves 10, me 1. Oh well. It was a blast. Be sure to visit the walk thru the forest in Palmas Del Mar! Victor H January 2019
Gorgeous Beach-Front villa 5 Stars (Post Maria)
The Villa is in the absolute perfect location. Beautiful beach and steps to the pool. It is the ideal get away! John McC January 2019
Clean and great location 5 Stars (Post Maria)
I was pleasantly surprised by the villa. It was clean and stocked with all the necessities. The location was amazing, looked out my back door and saw the ocean and the pool. I’m so glad we went, my 16 yr old daughter said this was her favorite trip. The people of PR are amazing and so appreciative of the tourism. That is what is so desperately needed if they are going to have the resources to fully recover. Go to Palmas Del Mar you will not be disappointed!! Nicole S February 2018
Great Villa! 5 Stars (Post Maria)
Very comfortable apartment, beautiful view, only few steps from the beach. Lisa and Lance were easy to contact. Nancy was very nice! I definitely recommend it! Ana R December 2017
Great location, beautiful villa. 5 Stars (Post Maria)
My girlfriend and I had a great time at this villa. Lisa and lance were easy to contact even with the hurricane hitting Puerto Rico. The villa was very comfortable and was right next to the beach. We only had power for one night but we really didn’t mind. We would stay again in the future. Eduardo P December 2017
Excellent property and in good conditions. Good location near the pool and the beach. 5 Stars
We had a great time in this property and my wife and kids loved it. Would return again anytime! Miguel D Aug 2017
Great View from a Great Place 5 Stars
We couldn't have been happier with Crescent Cove #11. The villa is spacious and in good shape, with plenty of beach toys available for fun.
This may be one of the best beach locations in all of Palmas del Mar. The beach had more seaweed than we would have liked, but that's just the breaks with currents, winds and season that is out of anyone's control.
Palmas del Mar is massive. Rent a golf cart and have a great time exploring all over. One of the neatest things is the Pterocarpus Forest. It is free and just a few minutes away by golf cart. It is a fresh water forest that has vegetation that looks like it's out of the Jurassic era. We went at night one time and turned off our lights. You'll feel like you're a million miles away from anywhere.
Nancy, the local person that looks after the property was very helpful. She answered any questions we had in a timely manner. She even met us at the local Beach Club and signed us in as guests of hers so that we could use the Club on a Sunday when the place is restricted to only full-time members.
The fruit basket that was awaiting us when we arrived was a nice touch as well.
If you are interested in visiting Puerto Rico, there may not be a better rental on the island for the money. Eric K July 2017

I was pleasantly surprised by the villa. It was clean and stocked with all the necessities. The location was amazing , looked out my back door and saw the ocean and the pool. Crescent cove #93 is very convenient to the beach and pool. Only damage that I saw was the ceiling in the living room needed to be touched up but nothing you would notice or even care about when you see your view. I’m so glad we went my 16 yr old daughter said this was her favorite trip. The people of PR are amazing and so appreciative of the tourism . That is what is so desperately needed if they are going to have the resources to fully recover. Go to Palmas Del Mar you will not be disappointed!! 🌴☀️🍹

Thank you Eduardo! So glad you loved our place as much as we do and that electricity was restored for you! We'd love to have you back, stay in touch and let us know if when you're ready to return! Feliz Navidad!
Rented the villa knowing it had no electrical power but was lead to believe the electricity would be restore prior to my visit. In addition I was no told that there was water damage through the villa and both bedrooms had small leaks of water from the ceiling. There was a strong odor of mold in the kitchen area.
Rafael, We were there during the hurricane and left the island 10 days later on 9/30/17. There was no mold and no leaks. Furthermore after you were there, we had other renters who had a great experience, despite no electricity, and didn’t mention anything about mold or leaks… We are disappointed to see your 1-star rating. You rented the place just weeks after Hurricane Maria knowing the circumstances on the island and knowing there was no electricity, to go down and help your father. You booked 4 nights to find your father and help clean up his house. We gave you a very inexpensive rate to do so given the circumstances. The day after your arrival, you texted us saying “taking my father back with me. I am going back tomorrow (to NY). Things are too difficult here, can you refund me the remaining days?” Rafael, you are trying to get a refund while backing out of the agreement. Your rating and review are unfair and misleading.

Thank you so much! And we are so happy that you loved your vacation at our place in Palmas del Mar! It was a pleasure having you! Please keep us in mind for another trip, hopefully you'll return to Puerto Rico again and we'd love to have you back!
First, the positives... the Villa is in an excellent location with a great view of the pool and ocean. It was great to soak that in every chance we could. The pool here was gorgeous and incredibly well maintained... only downfall there was it said pool opens at 9 but most days that was really 9:30 or later. Not a huge deal unless your a kid and wake early and want to jump in. We encountered some issues with the unit having a leak in kitchen, lights out, doors on rooftop not being functional, and it was also extremely dirty. Nancy was amazing and got right on fixing everything and had a couple ladies clean. Sadly, even after that, the unit was still in sad shape. It's extremely outdated, and honestly, dirty. Think pounds of dust on the lamps, toilets that barely have pressure to flush, scraped, dusty, and discolored ceilings and walls. The top floor gutter is also falling off, so when sleeping in the master, you listening to it banging the side of the building all night. We were also looking forward to spending time on one of two rooftop patios but were unable. Part of the time the door didn't function and then after that, you would literally sit and fry during the day. No umbrellas so it's like sitting on a hot frying pan... then sadly at night, there's no light up there so you would need to sit in dark. In my opinion, not useable space for a young family to enjoy which is a bummer. Also note if you go Easter weekend, the entire island closes on Good Friday. No shops, restaurants, etc. Also the crowds are insane! Wasn't too bad at the pool (but full) but beaches jammed packed, which made for a lot of noise during the night. Loud kids, golf carts, music, etc. Made the best of our time and super happy with prompt responses from Nancy.
We are glad you enjoyed the location of the villa and we are sorry you were not totally pleased. From time to time things happen and we always address things immediately. We hope our guests contact us right away about anything they notice so we can remedy it however we never heard from you that you had any issues until we read your review. We spoke to Nancy about the cleaning and she confirmed you did not contact her about this until 5 days into your vacation. She has a housekeeping checklist to make sure all is cleaned appropriately before guests arrive. Unfortunately since this situation was not addressed immediately, it is hard to provide evidence to housekeepers of the situation. She sent the cleaners back to the villa to clean up during your stay even though it was 5 days after your arrival. You were there more than a week, and we, the owners, never heard from you. Nancy and her cleaners always do a great job preparing the place for our guests. We were there in February and it was spotless and guests since then, prior to you, never mentioned “pounds” of dust. Regarding the lights inside the villa, Nancy sent out an electrician immediately. Our understanding is that it was fixed. There should be a light on the third level balcony. We were not aware that it was out until after you left. Had we (or Nancy) known sooner we would have had it replaced immediately. We appreciate the suggestion of an umbrella for the 3rd level terrace however due to the trade winds, umbrellas that are left open and unattended can get picked up by the wind and blown into the glass doors of the villa, so for this reason we have not put an umbrella on that terrace. The living room terrace is in the shade. Regarding the loose gutter, we have contacted the Crescent Cove administration as the outside of the building is their responsibility. Again, we were not aware of this until we read your review. Had you contacted us right away, we would have had them secure the gutter immediately. The sliding door upstairs probably got knocked off its track and Nancy took care of that for you. Please remember this is our personal villa that we generously offer to guests for their enjoyment at very reasonable rates. We hope our guests appreciate that we keep our rate to a minimum so more people can enjoy it. Once again, we are sorry to hear you weren’t extremely happy with your vacation.
We stayed in the condo the first week in April and had a wonderful vacation. The condo is as described and it had plenty of room for the four of us. We had a few lights that were not working and Nancy was right on top of it and had everything fixed in a few hours. We enjoyed a few of the nice restaurants in the community and loved that everything we needed was only a short drive away. The community felt very safe. We did a snorkeling trip with Captain Matt - Maragata Charters (highly recommend) and hiked in the El Yunque rainforest (bring your rain gear!). We also fished in San Juan with Captain Paco Mendez (with Peacock Bass and Tarpon Tours) and caught tarpon and snook. We also spent a day in Old San Juan and the recommendations in the binder for where to go and where to eat were spot on. We would definitely return!
We stayed at this villa from March 25-April 1, 2017. We had 5 people including 3 teenagers. Lisa and Lance were great to work with and very responsive on email. Nancy, the property manager, is very friendly and speaks good English. Overall, the villa itself is very well described on Homeaway. Everything worked fine and the property is in good shape. It does need a little updating, but that is pretty typical for this aged property. The master bedroom is very spacious with double sinks and a king bed, which was great. The bedroom AC worked really well. It was very quiet when we traveled there, so we had no trouble getting chairs by the pool or on the beach, any time of the day. Palmas del Mar is a huge gated community and has ample restaurants. It felt extremely safe there as each villa complex has its own set of gates too. The kids enjoyed renting a golf cart for a day and just driving around on the miles of paved trails. Hiking to La Mina Falls in El Jungue Rainforest was amazing as well as zip lining with Rainforest Zipline right by El Junque, if you are into adventures. The beaches in Puerto Rico are only okay unless you go out to one of the islands. We loved Old San Juan and the forts there. For a family, there are a ton of things to do with active kids, which we really loved. Lance and Lisa have a big binder of things to do and recommendations. We went with Paco for a snorkel adventure to Monkey Island and really enjoyed it. We found him in the binder. Thanks for sharing your villa with us, we would definitely come back there.
We had a wonderful time in Crescent Cove. Just steps away from the beach and a wonderful pool. One of the few parts of Palmas del Mar that is actually on the beach. Great to have coffee and afternoon drinks on the deck watching and listening to the ocean. Nice restaurants on site. Condo had everything we needed, including boogie board for the girls and beach towels. Ocean views from the master bedroom and family room are terrific. Hope to return.
We had the most amazing time in Palmas Del Mar! My husband, 2 1/2 year old boy and I have decided that this is where we will stay whenever we get to go to PR. Lisa responds very quickly to any questions you send, and Nancy ( property manager) is extremely helpful and pleasant! One day there was a power outage due to unavoidable circumstances. Nancy had her crew deliver us ice and an amazing fruit basket. We rented a golf cart from Nancy, I highly recommend that you do too. It's so much fun to explore the massive property. There's a beautiful nature trail to do a mini hike, we were the only ones there. We ate and drank at the Beach Bohio, a great beach front bar...we even painted our own fish to add to their collection in the trees. While looking for somewhere to go fishing, we also discovered a great a little seaside bar in a marina that we want to a few times...I think it was called La Pescaderia. Other than that, we stocked the fridge our first day and had a blast cooking and drinking by the sea! There's a Walmart & other stores about 15 min by car. There is also an ice cream & coffee shop in the hotel next door. The condo has everything you can possible need; seriously, you only need a swimsuit! Towels, bikes, boogie boards, full kitchen with basic staples, gas grill, tv, wifi, toiletries, you name it! The master bedroom looks directly at the sea, and the other bedroom has a great view of mountains in the distance. The pool was never crowded, and the beach felt like our own private paradise. The only thing that surprised me, and I'm sure this is my fault for not reading or asking, was that the first floor of the condo is not at ground level- it's the second floor of the building and the stairs can be a little slippery in the rain. The rooftop terrace was great! On our last night there we were lucky enough to watch a meteor shower up there. My best friend was in PR at the same time with her family. They stayed at the el Conquistador about 25 min north. This is a world renowned resort...and when they got to our place for a visit they couldn't stop talking about how much better our condo was than their cramped over-priced hotel room. They were quite jealous. I was so happy to have that comparison. I don't know why it took me so long to write this review, I've been dreaming of the place ever since we left. The property is fairly quiet and secluded, if you're looking for a spring-break crazy party look elsewhere. Thanks Lisa, Lance, and Nancy!
Thank you so much for that fantastic review! We are so glad you loved it all as much as we do and we certainly hope you come back year after year (or as frequently as you want)! Have a wonderful Fall and we look forward to having you back! Lisa & Lance
We really enjoyed our stay at Crescent Cove. The views from the living room balcony and rooftop balconies are fabulous. Sitting in the evening looking at the stars and listening to the waves with family over a glass of wine is such a great luxury. The unit is really well appointed and the little extras are so appreciated. When you arrive there is laundry detergent, dishwashing soap, beach towels, shampoo, cream rinse, and shower gel (and nice quality!). All of these plus the boogie boards (waves were perfect!), bikes and snorkeling equipment. The concierge (Nancy) goes out of her way to help meet all of your needs - so helpful! Thanks Lisa, Lance and Nancy for your help and we hope we can come back and visit in the future!
Hi Regina! What a great review! Thank you so much! We'd love to have you back, stay in touch and we hope we can be one of the places you return to year after year! Glad you had a great time & loved it as much as we do! Lisa & Lance
We arrived to a house completely ready for guests and a fruit basket awaiting us. The location of the house is fantastic; close to both pool and beach. After a quick trip for groceries, we were all set. The ocean breeze was great and we kept the windows and doors open during the day while we were there. We only had to turn on the air conditioning at night. There were no mosquitos to worry about. The house itself had everything we needed and the beach "toys" were an added bonus. We walked on the beach each day and went down to the sheltered part of the beach for snorkeling and swimming. Nancy was great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying at this house!
Hi Jill - Thank you for that great review! So glad you loved it and had a great time! Keep us posted if you want to return, we'd love to have you back anytime! Lisa & Lance
We arrived back in Chicago after departing Puerto Rica- Palmas Del Mar. ( 84 degrees PR; 44 degrees Chicago!?!). Crescent Cove was an outstanding home away from with all the amenities and necessities required for a perfect vacation. The villa was outstanding, the views were just as we envisioned , and the only drawback was we had to leave! Anyone who asks is going to get a double thumbs up recommendation (as long as they don't book it the same time we are next year!). We moved in, unpacked our suitcases, and lived the dream all week. Bioluminescent bays, horseback riding, tennis, swimming- beach or ocean- and anything else you and/or your family would like to do. See you next year! Steve and Lavern, Chicago, IL.
Thanks for that great review Steve! So glad you loved everything!! We can't wait to have you back again next year! Lisa & Lance
Just got back from our stay at 11 Crescent Cove and my husband and I are already thinking about the next time we can make it back down! What a pleasure to stay at John and Lisa's condo. Having stayed in hotels before, staying in this spacious condo was a treat. It was so nice to have a fridge & be able to go shopping for basic groceries and alcohol. We didn't have to go out to eat for every meal, which saved us a lot of time and money. The condo very clean and our bed was comfortable. We appreciated the little special touches including welcome gifts (fruit basket and wine for our recent wedding), having shampoo/conditioner/body wash ready to use, clean beach and bath towels and a kitchen with pots/pans and every appliance you could think of. The views from the master bedroom and decks were amazing! We set out alarm in the morning to open the curtain and watch the sunrise from our bed. The beach is gorgeous and the ocean was clear and warm. Although the pool looked nice, we went to the ocean every day! The convenience of the beach "Bohio" bar was also nice. We went for a few drinks, a couple lunches (good service & food) and met some of the friendly locals. We appreciated having the binder available in the condo w/ restaurant and activity recommendations. La Pescatoria was close & the food was excellent. Although we enjoyed many relaxing hours by the beach and having cocktails, my husband and I like outdoors adventures, so took advantage of a hike at El Yunque National Rainforest and zip-lining at Mameyes. Overall, this vacation was one for the books and comes HIGHLY recommended. Can't wait to go back :)
Thanks for that great review Kathy! So glad you and Steve had such a great time!! It was great to have you!!
What a fantastic trip! Everything about the villa was perfect - especially the location, the view, and the almost always pretty empty pool! Palmas is located in the perfect place for seeing much of the island....we were able to easily (well, as easily as possible with crazy San Juan traffic) get to Old San Juan for a day of forts and Calle Fortaleza; Fajardo and our friends at El Conquistador were a quick 30 minute trip; the boys kayaked the BioBay (the moon was new, but the bay doesn't glow like it used to...they still had a great time kayaking through the mangroves; and we golf carted around Palmas, eating at the new restaurants (well, new to us) in Palmanova and even finding Sea Glass Beach again! Nancy was very helpful and the unit was just as advertised (better, even). I have added this property to my 'things to do/places to stay/where to eat in PR' email I send to friends and family who are planning a visit. We were so excited to be back after 11 years! Thanks for the great place to call home for the week!
Thanks for that great review Lisa and so glad you loved being back in Palmas and loved our villa so much! Please come visit again anytime! And thank you for referring your friends!
The Palmas Del Mar development is just beautiful. We rented a car at the airport and it took about 45 minutes to get to the property. A very easy drive. When you are at the beach and look towards the marina and the houses nestled into the hills you feel like you are in a Mediterranean coastal village. The townhouse is right on the ocean with wonderful views of the pool, the palm trees and the beach. The house has everything you need including water "toys", two bicycles, and toiletries. There is a gas barbecue grill on the balcony and we noticed that the tank was empty. We called Nancy to ask her where we should take to the tank to fill it but instead she sent someone right over with a full tank. A very nice surprise. The development has many different neighborhoods with a good choice of restaurants. Our favorite was La Brochette in Plaza Nova but we also enjoyed the more upscale Chez Daniel and La Pescaderia both in Anchor Village. We drove to Fajardo to do a few excursions. We did the mini boat snorkel trip which was different but the ride is a little rough in the small rubber boats. We also did the catamaran snorkel trip which was wonderful. It was though East Island Excursions. We drove ourselves to the El Yunque Rainforest and had a good time. The walk down to La Mina falls was easy but the walk back up was a little harder. The falls itself was very nice but a little crowded possibly because we went on the weekend. All in all it was just a wonderful trip. We will definitely be back and would hope to be able to rent the same property.
Thank you for that comprehensive and great review! We're so glad you loved it so much and did so many wonderful excursions & activities! We'd love to have you back, please stay in touch! All the best, Lisa & Lance
The complex is outstanding. I was very disappointing that I was not able to play the golf course because it looked spectacular and the tennis complex is first rate. The grounds are so well kept and the food in the restaurants was also above average. The unit itself was very large, clean and has everything you need for a week away. It could use some updating and the ac is a bit weak upstairs but the location and views are incredible. Nothing like waking up and looking directly at the beach.
Seven days and seven nights in Puerto Rico was fabulous !! Part of the reason was our lodging, the property location was perfect. It was peaceful everything was close, we did go to San Juan twice but that was shopping & touring. The Villa was clean & well stocked walking distance to the pool & beach. Nancy the property mgr. was wonderful she was very helpful with any questions and info, she even came out when I called. Lisa the owner was very nice and made it very easy to book the Villa gave me a lot of info to help with my planning. The next time I come o Puerto Rico I plan to stay here if possible. Thank you so much Lisa & Nancy. D.Colbert
Thanks Deborah! So glad you all loved your vacation at our place! We'd love to have you come back! Stay in touch! We will pass your kind words along to Nancy as well. She is wonderful, and we are so happy to have her assist our guests! Hope to have you back again soon!
The villa is located right on the beach. The owner Lisa is awesome she replied my emails and texts quickly within minutes. She even emailed us places to go see. The villa is in a very safe award winning resort with well manicured golf course. We felt at home it was worth the money. We will be back.
Palmas del Mar was fantastic. It is close to the stores and restaurants. Very nice. Great for our family (4 adults, 2 kids). Crescent Cove was fantastic, the grounds were well kept. The condo was beautiful and everything that I expected. The master bedroom was very large. The roof top deck was a dream. Many relaxing dinners were spent on the deck. The deck had a fantastic view. The addition bedrooms were very spacious. The Cove pool was great and the beach was a lot of fun! We had a great time. The property manager was excellent. She helped us out with reservations (even at the last minute!). She responded quickly to all our questions. We plan to return!
Thank you Ivy! So glad you loved it as much as we do! We'd love to have you back anytime, please stay in touch and come again!
The view from the villa is exactly like the picture posted. You can just sit in the balcony and have your morning coffee or sip a glass of wine in the evening. The villa was clean and some essentials were left for our arrival. I must commend the manager of the villa, Nancy Cruz. She was wonderful waited for us to arrive, coordinated a golf cart and was there to provide us with whatever we needed. I will recommend anyone going to Palmas to contact Nancy and make their arrangements.
Thank you! So glad you loved it as much as we do! We agree, you can't beat the location and the view, that's why we fell in love with it - it's our little slice of Heaven and we're so happy to share it with others! Come again, we'd love to have you back!
Me and my wife stayed here for our honeymoon. this place was truly nice it was quiet during the week. At night time since the Villa is right on the beach you can go to sleep listening to the waves crash it was terrific. they provided directions to and from the Villa to San Juan, attractions like El Yunque and shops/supermarkets. we made food most of the time, the Kitchen was fully-equipped. they provide bikes to ride snorkeling equipment to use for beach as well. they have a gas grill on the roof for BBQ's which was great. there are 3 floors the top floor has two decks one in the front of the building and in the back facing the beach and pool. i recommend any one to stay we will definitely come back.
Thank you Corenzo! So glad you had a wonderful honeymoon!! Sounds like you loved it as much as we do! Please keep us in mind for your future vacations!
We could not have been happier with our stay at Palmas Del Mar. The apartment gave our family of two adults and two teenage boys plenty of room to spread out on comfortable sofas and beds. The property is well maintained and the resort itself is huge, with plenty of activities to offer. The condo's extra amenities including beach towels and toys were appreciated. We took advantage of the wi-fi and laundry and were pleasantly surprised that shampoo/conditioner/body wash was provided in the showers and laundry soap was provided as well. The beach location was stunning - the pictures online do not do it justice! For those with small children it should be noted that there are warning signs on the beach just outside the condo of strong rip currents. However, just a few yards away there is a calmer spot great for playing and swimming in the ocean. On the flipside, to be noted for the adults, the Beach Bohio makes a mean Rum Punch and Mojito, and it too is just a few yards away. They also serve a wonderful lunch. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how helpful our onsite contact, Nancy, was for us during our vacation. She even answered questions for us when we couldn't reach our onsite contact for the first location we were staying at during our trip to Puerto Rico. We would highly recommend this spot to our friends and family and hope to return sooner than later. Our only regret - not staying here longer during our trip!
Hi Julia - Thank you for that amazing review! It makes us so happy that our guests love it as much as we do!! And we agree with everything you said! We're so glad you liked Nancy also, we're so happy to have her, she takes such great care of everyone for us while you're at our villa! She said you were wonderful guests too! We'd love to have you back, please stay in touch and let us know how we can help you again in the future! Thanks again for choosing our villa! Lisa & Lance
We recently stayed at this beautiful property. Perfect for couples or families. The view is amazing and the weather is great year round! This property has all the amenities you would want from a condo. There is so much to do at the resort, you never have to leave! We had amazing dinners at the plaza & marina. The owners give you excellent recommendations for restaurants & attractions. We also hiked up to the waterfall in the rainforest nearby and took a bio bay tour in Laguna Grande one night. The property manager was great and quick to respond to any questions. This is a secure community and that includes the beach. We felt safe the entire time we were there. Thanks Lance & Lisa! We are looking forward to visiting again soon. :)
We have been back in New York for less than a week and already are thinking about our next visit to Palmas! Thank you again for the opportunity to stay in your lovely villa. Our family had a much needed visit—so wonderful to have the main question at the start of the day to be: whether to go to the beach or the pool first?!
Loved our stay. Great location. Villa was right by the pool & beach. Spent many hours on the beach. Played some tennis, went to the pterocarpus forest & the humacao nature preserve. Both were terrific. Ate outside every night in 7 different restaurants. Best was Chez Daniel. Would definitely recommend this property
Thank you Lisa & Lance for a wonderful villa! It is so beautiful and so close to the water! We live in Puerto Rico and I wanted to take our daughters away for the weekend. We had a great time! They loved playing in the pool and on the beach! It was a great quick get away – thanks for accommodating us so quickly and smoothly! You made the process very easy! The girls loved playing with all the extras you keep in your villa: bikes, paddle tennis, snorkels and water noodles! We had a wonderful weekend – thank you so much!
You're so welcome and we're so glad you had a great time! Come back anytime!
We have a great time! Your villa is very complete and clean and the location is better than pictured! We rented a golf car and traveled all over Palmas, seeing all the different parts of Palmas! The girls enjoyed the pool and beach very much! We had a great vacation! I hope to return in the future. Thanks for everything!
It’s already cold at home again with a lot of snow already - Winter is back! Time to plan our next trip to this wonderful villa! We took our kids in the Spring as a break from a very cold and snowy Winter! It was the best vacation! 83 degrees everyday, sunshine, blue water, green palm trees, amazing views right from the villa! Truly amazing coming from Wisconsin!! You can’t go wrong with this villa and the owners were super great to work with! We’re coming back! Wish we could stay all Winter!!
Thank You for the use of your villa. We had a wonderful time enjoying the sights, sounds & experiences Puerto Rico has to offer. You have a beautiful home. Thank you for sharing it with us, we'd love to come back!
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed everything and we'd love to have you back! Have a great day & stay in touch!
We enjoyed this property and Palmas very much. The condo was PERFECT for our family of 5 (3 kids ages 4, 6, and 14). We spent several days just hanging out at the beach. We did make it up to the rainforest and San Juan. Thursday we chartered a fishing boat and that was LOTS of fun. Unfortunately our snorkeling trip got rained out on Friday so we went shopping :-).
We really enjoyed our stay in Puerto Rico and your villa. You have a wonderful unit and the resort is great! Restaurants were very good, easy to find and the people of Puerto Rico were so hospitable! We were pleased that it was so quiet but it was the off-season so understandable…actually that was a positive! Most days we were the only guests at the beach and pool. It was more beautiful in person than in your pictures and it was so relaxing! Again, thanks for all your help, recommendations and assistance. We had a great week and would love to come back!
We really had a great time which is NOT hard to do here! A new grill came fully assembled the first day we arrived. We used it a lot and had a great time up on the top deck. Our high points for me was our Pork Highway day. I thought that was a lot of fun. We all would choose the boat charter over to Vieques for some snorkel, fishing and dining there as a great time. The kids had fun tooling around in the golf cart otherwise just hours of playing in the ocean everyday. What a great place! This is a resort that we would plan to revisit in the future as it has a lot to offer! We did appreciate the beach towels and boogie boards. Thanks to the owners, Lance & Lisa, you have been very nice!
Condo offered all amenities stated, and the kitchen was well equipped. Unit description and layout were as stated but the property is older and it does show its age. VERY close to the beach. Great views from unit. Many units are being refurbished in the complex as the salt air does take its toll on them. The view makes up for that. The beach was lovely and clean at the resort as well as the pool. Very well maintained by the groundskeeper Sam. He was very kind. The unit could have been cleaner. Bathrooms and floors were not as clean as we would have liked. The concierge offered to have unit re-cleaned. The owner was EXCELLENT with requests and response time and the concierges desk /rental managers office were very helpful with trip arrangements. We would return to Palmas Del Mar. Zip Line in the rain forest is a must as well as chartering a boat to Culebra Island for snorkeling. Top 3 beach in the world right now. We had a great time. Family of 5.
We had a wonderful and very memorable time in PR! Your spacious condo was so lovely. Not just the location and the view, but all the personal touches that made it feel like home. Boogie boards, LOTS of snorkeling masks to choose from, beach towels, even bicycles! This is the first condo in which we have stayed where enough paper products and soap were provided! The comfort of the master bed can make or break a vacation for me and my back. This bed slept great. I was more rested and relaxed on this trip than any time in the past several years. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed coffee and the priceless view from the balcony. The kids loved the beach - plenty of waves for the boogie boards. Thursday was our day aboard the Erin go Bragh which was my favorite part of the trip. I would highly recommend this. We enjoyed eating and site-seeing in Old San Juan. The kids’ favorite non-beach activity was the BioIsland Bio Bay tour in Farjardo. Everyone visiting PR for the first time should include this in their trip. I will recommend not only PR to my friends and anyone who will listen, but your condo as well! Thank you so much for your hospitality!
Wow! Where has the year gone? We were just reminiscing about our February vacation at this wonderful villa and decided to post a review! We highly recommend this villa as a romantic getaway for two, or for a family as the resort is very kid-friendly! Kids will love the pool right in front of the villa and everyone will love the beach! The restaurants have something for everyone – we ate out as well as had home delivery. It was beautiful and totally safe and completely relaxing! We’ll be back – we’re going to start planning our trip for 2015!
Everything was wonderful! We had a perfect January vacation! Your place is great and the views are better in person! We had the best time! Can’t stress enough the wonderful views and that your villa is right on the beach! Great villa, resort and a safe place for the kids to play too! Thank you very much! We would love to come back again!
We are looking to come back for January 2015 and wanted to write this review of our stay during New Years 2014. The villa, location, views and proximity to both the beach and the pool is amazing! The villa was very clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. Lance & Lisa the owners, were great & very responsive, and made the rental process quick and very easy. The resort, Palmas del Mar is clean, safe, not crowded and everyone is very friendly. It’s very family-oriented and kid-friendly too! The resort has much to offer, including a grocery & liquor store, clothing & souvenir stores and many great restaurants ranging from delivery to fine dining (something for everyone!). This was an incredibly relaxing vacation! We are definitely going to return in 2015! Thanks so much for sharing your villa with us!
I'm still numb! We had the best tropical trip yet. We just scratched the surface at Palmas del Mar. After 2 days of traveling around PR, we decided to honker in and use the pool and the ocean. No one was there other than a few snow birds and local families. Everyone was very pleasant, the real estate office people were very helpful, and the grounds were spectacular. You must have the best villa in the entire property. We swam in the pool, boogie boarded, snorkeled at la posita (the point), had lunches on the beach, visited the Bohio, spent time making jewelry with Ruth who sells jewelry at the Wyndham lobby, and caught bull frogs at night. Sharing our trip with everyone and mentioning your villa. Thank you sooooo much for such an awesome experience. We are looking on coming back hopefully next year, around the same time. We were told that the property settles down after Spring break and Easter, which is what we liked. We felt so at home, like it was ours. Thanks again !
My husband and I were amazed the minute we arrived in Palmas Del Mar. All of the grounds are impeccably kept and everyone was waving at us as we drove by!! We arrived at Crescent Cove to find all of the comforts of home with none of the stress. Our villa had a welcoming Caribbean feel and was very well equipped. The layout of the villa was relaxed and fun, and everything was extremely clean! The entire development was perfectly manicured and the staff doing it never passed up a chance to ask us if we needed anything or just to simply say hello! The friendliness was genuine and amazing. By the second night, my husband was face-timing all of our friends and giving them tours!! We sampled a bit of everything, eating a nice dinner at CBar, having awesome pizza from The Flying Pizza (they deliver) and definitely enjoying Beach Bohio Bar which was right on the beach!! Everything was in walking distance and super convenient. Golf carts and bikes are available for rental at extremely reasonable prices. We fell asleep to the breeze and sounds of the ocean, toured the rain forest, and even participated in yoga and water aerobics which take place right on the property! By our last day, my husband and I were already looking at dates to come back later this year....and with our kids! Another great thing - the whole magical experience was kid-friendly!! During our early morning walks we came across children's parks, a church, a water park, and there were tons of tours, fishing, and boating activities to choose from! We definitely found a gem down in Crescent Cove in Palmas Del Mar, and we can't wait to make this one of our regular vacation destinations.....alone, with friends, or even with our kids!!!!
We decided to go away for Thanksgiving this year – we found the perfect place! We had the best week – no stress, just perfect ocean-front relaxation! We loved everything and the concierge services were really wonderful helping us fly to Vieques Island for the day, and make golf and dinner reservations! Thank you Lance & Lisa for your wonderful villa! Just looking at the ocean from your villa, and sitting on the beach is Heaven! We loved everything and will be back!
Thanks for the great review and we're so glad you had such a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation! Please come back anytime!
Thanks Lisa & Lance for a great villa and a great vacation! We booked this relatively last minute and everything was handled so smoothly! From driving directions to getting the keys and finding the villa – everything was super easy. The views of the ocean are even better in person! We went with another couple for a relaxing vacation and Palmas Del Mar had everything we wanted from ocean, pool, golf, tennis and restaurants. The villa was clean and attractive and had all the amenities we needed. The top deck overlooking the ocean is amazing! We highly recommend this villa and Lisa & Lance. You’ll love everything and we’ll be back! Thanks again!
Hi Terry & Everyone - so glad you enjoyed your trip! We welcome you back anytime! Stay in touch! Lisa
Thank you Lance & Lisa for a wonderful vacation at your villa. As you know we booked a trip for a family reunion. Since we had more people than would fit in your villa, you made arrangements to the rest of our group to stay in another villa in the same area as yours. It was a wonderful solution! We could walk back and forth between the two villas. Everyone loved the Palmas Del Mar resort and your villa in Crescent Cove. We think it’s the best location in the whole resort! It’s so close to the beach and the pool – and it is all so gorgeous and peaceful and relaxing! The kids loved everything too! Because the beach and the pool provided so much entertainment we only made one snorkeling excursion which was so much fun! Other than that, we stayed at the beach and pool and enjoyed the wonderful restaurants in Palmas Del Mar or cooked at the villa. My husband and I will be back for another vacation next year – just the two of us next time :-) We can’t wait! Thanks again for all your help accommodating our larger group. You made it possible for the vacation we all wanted!
We're so glad you enjoyed your vacation with your whole family! Please come back any time!
This was our first time using HomeAway and it was a great experience! Palmas del Mar is beautiful and #11 is a gem! My family of six (4 kids under 11) felt right at home. It was like staying at a good friends house. It had everything we needed, very clean and very safe! The views and the sounds of the crashing waves are unforgettable. Kids loved the beach and the pool! Just be careful of the waves and under current. Head to the area by the point, the water is calmer. We used this as our base camp. We visited old San Juan, el Yunque, Flamenco Beach, and Humacao Nature Reserve. All are a must. Driving is difficult, but very rewarding. The rest of the time we stayed at the condo and were beach bums and loved every minute of it! The condo made the our vacation perfect. We really loved it!
Thanks David! Sounds like a perfect vacation! So glad everyone loved it and that you did all that you did! Thanks for the photo of the kids building sand castles on the beach! We would love to have you back anytime! Please let us know if we can help you again! God Bless, Lisa & Lance
Great guys golf weekend! Went down to PR for a few days with the guys to play golf. We played both courses and they were great! We hung out on the beach when we weren’t golfing. The villa is beautiful – we highly recommend this place for a great get-away golf weekend! We will be back!
Love this place! We had a perfect week! Thanks so much Lisa, you and your husband were wonderful and it was everything you said it would be! Great ocean views from the villa, wonderful beach and pool. We enjoyed the restaurants and the hospitality from everyone was tops! Thank you so much! You have a wonderful villa!
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed it so much! Stay in touch if you want to return, we'd love to have you back! Lisa
We just got back from a great vacation at your villa! Thank you so much for opening your home to us – we had a wonderful time! It was a relaxing get-away vacation for us – we enjoyed sun-bathing and walking on the beautiful private beach, and watching the moon and stars at night from your top deck. The peaceful sound of the ocean waves is just incredible! The view is more gorgeous than your picture show! The restaurants were great and everyone we met was so pleasant and accommodating! We love your villa and we love Palmas Del Mar. We will be back! Thank you again for letting us enjoy your villa – it was truly one of our best vacations!
Hi Rosie - Thanks for the great note! Glad you had a great time! Please let us know if we can help you again in the future!
We had a wonderful time at your villa! It was a family trip for us with our teenage kids and everyone loved it! The villa was clean and had the best view of the ocean I think we’ve ever had anywhere! The kids loved the beach, riding the waves and jumping in the pool. They were outside the entire day! One day my husband and our son played golf (they loved the course!) while I played tennis with our two girls. It was a fun day for everyone. Another day we went snorkeling – the water is so clear and such a perfect temperature! The kids loved the snorkel trip! All the people down there are so helpful and accommodating! The rest of the time we stayed at the villa, enjoying the beach and pool and resort restaurants. We want to come back, Puerto Rico has so much to offer that we want to do more next time. We’ll let you know when we can come again! Thanks so much for all your help making our vacation such an enjoyable experience!
Hi Nan - Sounds like an awesome vacation! You did a lot: Golf, tennis, snorkel trip and beach & pool! So glad you enjoyed your time at our place. Please come back anytime! Stay in touch and take care, we'd love to have you back!
Your property was great! The location was perfect! We were down there to watch our daughter play in a Tennis Tournament at Palmas Del Mar. My wife and I did not know where the tennis team was going to stay......and to our surprise they stayed in the same property where you have your place! I liked very much this area of PR.......never been there! If we go back a next time, I will contact you directly again. Thanks Lisa - it was better than we imagined!
We are so glad you and your kids had such a great time! We'd love to have you back - There is so much to do in PR, that it is hard to do it all in one vacation. Please stay in touch, we'd love to help you with another vacation! Lance & Lisa
Thank you so much - we just got back from your fabulous ocean front villa! We loved it! Our kids loved the pool and the beach (as did we) and we all enjoyed watching the moon over the ocean and the stars at night from the top deck! Spectacular! We also spent a day at the Rain Forest and another day sight-seeing in Old San Juan. Other than those expeditions, we stayed at the resort, at the villa, beach & pool. We will definitely be back! Great place! Everyone was so nice & helpful!
Hi Ellie - Thanks so much for letting us know what a great time you had! We are so glad you enjoyed it! Please let us know when we can help you again in the future! We'd love to have you back!
This is my second time to this villa - We love it here, we wish it were ours and we could come all the time! This would be my home away from home! It may not ours, but it is our annual Caribbean vacation spot! The villa is clean and spacious, the living room & patio, master bedroom and top deck all face the ocean - you can hear the waves and see the beach and the pool. The beds are super comfortable too! We spend all our time either on the beach, swimming, or sitting on the decks reading, talking and watching the beach. It's pure heaven! Between last year and this year, we've been to the rain forest, flown to Vieques for a day, shopped and dined in Old San Juan, played tennis, golfed at the gorgeous resort courts & courses, deep sea fished (hooked a marlin! but it spit the hook...) and snorkeled. The waters are so clear at the beach that you can snorkel right off the beach at the Point protected by a reef. The water temperature is always warm, so you can walk right it, and it's refreshing too - it's wonderful just to float out there! At night we swim in the pool! There are plenty of restaurants in this resort, so you don't have to leave if you don't want to. The area of the resort where this villa is, is the BEST (prettiest and best amenities) ocean front cluster of Villas in the whole resort! This villa is one of the closest villas to the beach - it just couldn't get any better for a tropical vacation. I'd recommend this villa as a romantic getaway, and to families as children of all ages will love it, and to groups of people for golf and tennis vacations, and just for pure Rest & Relaxation! This is the PERFECT vacation choice for whatever your pleasure! We can't say enough wonderful things about this amazing villa! This is our annual vacation destination - we'll be back year after year! Thanks Lance & Lisa for offering this wonderful villa and vacation destination!
Hi Jimmy - We are so glad you love our place as much as we do! We look forward to having you back again! If there's anything we can do to help with your next vacation please let us know, we're glad to help! Take care!
