Overall my family and I liked our accommodations. We stayed for 6 nights. We could have lived on the balcony. Spacious with gorgeous view of the ocean! Everything was clean upon entry and we had good communications with our owner. The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils. The two bedrooms were well appointed and the beds as reported by my daughter and wife were very comfortable. The second bedroom did not cool down as well as the rest of the condo with the a/c which was more than adequate. They condo itself has its own pool complex which was very nice and relaxing. It was not crowded at all. Through our owner, we hired a local chef for a dinner that was just what we wanted - local food with great flavor. We dined on the afore mentioned balcony and enjoyed every minute. This was our first time with VRBO and the tips and information were helpful. I will say that Puerto Rico has great people and friendly at every turn. From this location as a base, we were able to easily get to Old San Jaun, Fajardo, Luquillo Beach and other great locations.
What I learned was that not every place is the same and while many owners of this complex participate with VRBO, they don't all offer the same amenities, so do your homework. We traveled with four families on this trip. Each had a condo at the Marbella Club, but the experience for each was a bit different as can be expected. Some owners sent detailed packages of activities and instructions, while others simply sent a basic email. Also, three of the four owners belonged to the nearby Beach Club, so they had access to other pools and activities. Again, not a deal breaker, but ask before you commit. We did have a plumbing issue at our place and I must say that the owner acted immediately to fix it upon notification. The beach area is non-existent right in front of the complex due to erosion. About a quarter mile away there is a strip of a beach where my daughter and friends spent considerable time, but you will have to travel to find a proper beach. Also, the complex (Playa del Mar) which has many condo associations (like the Marbella Club), clubs, etc. is very large. It is advisable to rent a golf cart to explore the area, restaurants, etc. especially if you have teens that are always on the move. They have multi-day rental options, that were perfect for my 18 year old and her friends. In summery, nice clean, safe, place, wonderful balcony, nice pool area, wonderful view, that is almost perfect.
The guard shack didn't know we were coming and didn't have our name either. That caused a little confusion when we checked in. The kitchen needed a few things such as a cookie sheet, Pyrex, measuring cups, baking dish, cutting knives, colander, insulated cups to take to the pool and a toaster. The elevator wasn't working off and on all week. Other helpful items needed: a map of the grounds, emergency numbers, and suggested restaurants. It had bad beach erosion. The staff at the gate was exceptionally nice and helpful.
My husband, daughter and I stayed in the unit for 5 nights - in Marabella, the development within Playa del Mar where this condo is located. Playa del Mar is a large planned unit community with more than 3,000 units 50 minutes from San Juan, and easy driving distance from the rainforest, and other sites in PR's East coast. The condo itself could not be better - very well appointed, very comfortable beds, beautiful ocean views, beautiful balcony, WIFI. The pool area is beautiful and well maintained - no beach but enough room for walks. A car is a must - nice restaurants within playa del mar. Walmart nearby for groceries. Analis with Caribbean Rentals was very professional and excellent to work with.
We stayed at the condo for 1 week, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Every morning, we started out our day with a wonderful breakfast that we enjoyed on the balcony. When at the condo, we spent a majority of our time on the balcony as there was a table and a sitting area. The view from the balcony was beautiful overlooking a small grassy area and the beach. We couldn't get enough of the view!
After breakfast, we enjoyed the pool, hot tub and beach daily. There are plenty of pool chairs and beach chairs at the Marbella Club. So, you didn't have to get down to the pool/beach area early to make sure you had a chair. We simply went down when we wanted, morning and afternoon, and grabbed a chair. It was an easy walk (just down the elevator and a 1 min walk to the pool/beach) to the pool or beach.
We did have a car rental, and are glad we did. We went to the grocery stores in Humacao (about a 15-20 minute drive from the condo) to get our groceries for the week. Plus, we drove to the local restaurants (recommend Pescaderia, Beach Bohio, Pura Vida, Chihauhua Tex Mex Cantina - all within Palmas del Mar). Many people have golf carts in Palmas del Mar. Palmas del Mar is a resort like area. Very quiet and perfect for those looking for rest and relaxation.
The pictures represent the condo well. All said, we really enjoyed the condo, and would recommend it to others.
We were first at Palmas del Mar in 1993 and havent been back since until this vacation.
The property was a comfortable 2 bedroom unit in the Mabella section of Palmas del Mar. Mabella is a gated complex of 5 5 story buildings at the end of the beach road. It is a quiet area with lovely pools and beach but walking distance to the Wyndam Hotel. There is a lot of beach erosion in Palmas in general but Mabella does have a swimmable beach. Mabella is also right next to the Beach Club for those with kids.
The unit was comfortable and nicely decorated. It is on the penthouse floor (5th). We really enjoyed reading on the couches on the porch. Views of the ocean were great! The dishwasher needs some work and the hot water in one of the bathrooms was a problem but otherwise all was great.
Palmas del Mar has 2 golf courses, 18 tennis courts, an equestrian center and a casino in the Wyndam hotel. Food was a bit of a problem. The grocery store in the complex was more like a convenience store and the restaurant choices were fair. I did feel like we were in a food desert. There is not a spa but massages are available. There is a small gym on top of the tennis courts. While we rented a golf cart a car would have been a better choice. It is a bit far to the restaurants by the marina in a gas powered golf cart.
Overall it was a wonderful vacation.
