Villa De Palma Testimonials:

For not really knowing where to stay, we choose well! Great location with beach on site! We enjoyed the pool and tennis courts also! The house fit our family well! We had everything we needed at the house including boogie boards and tennis rackets. Alma and Alex communicated better than any other Airbnb I have ever used! They were really great! The power went out and I was worried about a family member’s insulin staying refrigerated until the generator got going. They kindly sent ice to me, which was super nice of them! We would stay at their properties again for sure! Thanks for the great accommodations!

-Jed, West Jordan, UT– Villa de Palma, October 2023

Alma’s place was exactly what my family and I were looking for. The private beach, pools, and amenities made the experience that much more enjoyable. Leading up to our stay, Alma and the team made sure we were fully prepared for our stay. The communication and flexibility provided were especially appreciated. We will definitely be returning!

-George, Hartford, CT– Villa de Palma, October 2023

A beautiful place to stay! Great communication and attention to details. If we go back to Puerto Rico I would definitely book with Alma again

-Rachel, Buffalo, NY– Villa de Palma, August 2023

Beautiful location and lovely spacious villa.
-Hardik, Peachtree City, GA– Villa de Palma, May 2023
Beautiful home, very nice and clean, will come back soon. Thank You so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.
-Joseph, Mesquire, TX– Villa de Palma, May 2023
Wonderful stay. Very peaceful and relaxing. We searched everywhere for a nice relaxing and quiet beach and to be honest, it was right at Alma’s place. It’s tucked in a cove and shared with the Hyatt and hardly anyone was ever down at the beach. It was like we had it to ourselves. We found a little corner where it was calm and serene. Snorkeled and honestly fell in love with the beach and amazing view. Never went back out to another beach cause we had it all right here. We were very disappointed in all the other beaches we went to. Nothing compared to ours. We were right next to the pool and the beautiful clubhouse. Basically had the pool all to ourselves. Place was very clean and they were very convenient. If we had any questions Alex was prompt to answer. Highly recommend!
-Amy, Flat Rock, MI- Villa de Palma, May 2023
The property is exactly as described. As a family traveling with two little boys (3 years and 9 months), it was idyllic. We were close enough to the beach that even with the baby’s nap schedule, we squeezed in every opportunity we could get. The place is so close to a beautiful pool that was hardly ever being used, it felt like it practically belonged to our toddler. We took advantage of hiring a private chef two of the nights and both were fantastic. They arranged a grocery shopper and walking into a house fully stocked with our requested items was an incredible feeling! I honestly can’t stress enough how perfect this location was for someone traveling with small children!
-Riley, Hershey, PA- Villa de Palma, February 2023

Nice beautiful beachfront villa. Private community, a lot of amenities and activities to enjoy on property. 5-minute walk to the private beach, quiet and breathtaking views. The villa itself, we found it super convenient and very well equipped. Overall, it is a great place to stay, it’s even more beautiful than the pictures show. Highly recommend!

-Tracey, Naperville, IL– Villa de Palma, December 2022

Excellent place to enjoy with the family!!!

-Carmen, Bayamón, PR- Villa de Palma, July 2022

The neighborhood was nice and quiet and our family was very much at home. What a nice surprise when the power went out in the neighborhood – the backup generator kicked in like a charm! Great response time from both Alma and Alex. A great place to stay!

-Aitssa, Miami, FL, June 2022

We stayed in the villa de Palma for the whole month of October. We really enjoyed our stay – villa, community and the beach exceeded our expectations. When we were not on the beach, kids enjoyed the pool, playground and football game in the common space (which gave us a good break). The villa is spacious, clean, well furnished and stocked up. Furniture is comfortable, appliances worked fine. The host is very responsive and caring about our needs. We were able to make afternoon trips to Old San Juan, which is about 40 min driving from the villa.

-Irina, Broomfield, CO, October 2022

The pictures were more than accurate. The Villa was beautiful, clean, great location. Will not be disappointed.

–Edmee, Atwater, MN, February 2020

Our stay at the Lakeside Villas was wonderful. The villa is simply stunning and beautiful. We stayed there for a week with family and we couldn’t be happier. My only regret is that we had to leave. The villa is spacious with amazing high ceilings which give it a majestic look. The pool is literally outside your patio door and it was fantastic. The villa has everything you can possibly need from pots and pans in the kitchen to beach chairs. Whenever we had a question about anything Alex was there to help us. The villa is ideal for family getaways. It is extremely comfortable. The villa is situated close to everything from beaches to restaurants. You cannot go wrong with this property and I can’t wait to go back. Thank you Alma!!!!
–Gloria, New Jersey, June 2019

Thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful house in paradise. It was a perfect week and the villa could not have been more perfect for us. It was so warm and inviting and beds so comfortable. So clean, so beautifully decorated, and has everything we could have wanted to make our vacation perfect. The linens and towels top notch! And the beach chairs and umbrellas were perfect! Kitchen has all we could have needed for all the great dinners on the patio. We really had such a memorable week. This was our 1st vacation in 11 years! We are hoping to come back again next year! Talking about the plans already! I think that’s everything. Thank you for everything. We were very impressed, especially with how responsive you were to all of our needs.
–Mary, Hudson, New Hampshire, May 2019

Thank you so much for lending us your beautiful home again last week. We had an amazing time!
At the villa we cooked fish, watched Game of Thrones, and laughed ourselves silly playing some godawful tennis. Among our many adventures I count 6 ocean beaches, 2 La Parguera snorkeling adventures (reef + bio bay, which was astonishing), and 4 river swimming holes, each more spectacular than the last. And the food was fabulous! Roxanne speaks Spanish, which enabled more culinary adventures than when I traveled alone. Highlights were the sampler platter at Deaverdura in OSJ, a lechonera in Guavate, and many roadside food stands. Thank you again, this trip created memories for a lifetime.
–Mike and Roxanne, Massachusetts, 2019

The spacious Villa de Palma provided us with a peaceful respite from the hustle and the bustle away from the larger metropolitan areas, yet it was close enough to shopping malls and other beach resorts in the Dorado area. The serenity of the complex was therapeutic to us. Every morning, we woke up to the chirping of song birds. We played many rounds of dominoes at the patio table, while enjoying outdoors BBQ dinners. The many rounds of Table Tennis at the Rec Center, just a few steps away, finally improved my game.  Alex was awesome, just a phone call or text message away. Thank you, Lizzie for offering your concierge services, but we were familiar with the island and its entertainment.
–Elsa from California – Spring 2017

Three weeks in paradise doesn’t say enough
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The property was exactly as described as on the website, beautiful and fit for a king. Everything you needed was there and if not all you had to do was call Alex and he would provide. The unit was spotless inside and the grounds were beautifully maintained. We planned this trip two years in advance to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and once the time came the three weeks flew by. All our guests were taken back by Villa and the grounds. They still can’t stop talking about the wonderful time they had here and exploring Puerto Rico. We also had a chance to meet Alma and she invited us to be her Guest at an after party at the Ritz Carlton. Another great memory! This is a place I would recommend for family and friends who want to get away from it all and explore on their own. We visited the Camuy Caves, Arecibo Telescope, Dorado Beach and Old San Juan a must. There is plenty to do and see for everyone. We will be back.
–SM from California, June 2017

We really enjoyed our time at your home away from home. I really wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend it to friends and would love to come again.

Brent and Susan and family, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, March 2011

Thoroughly enjoyed your property. We just hung out and had the winds and sand, enjoyed the pool and the last couple of days of no cooking. Your place is very homey. Loved it!

Graham and Gail, Saskatchewan, Canada, February 2011

Ditto! What an awesome place to relax and enjoy life!

Glen and Heather, Kemnay, Manitoba, Canada, February 2011

This is our third year in the house. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home. It feels like our home away from home when we are in Puerto Rico. This is the first time that we came without the kids as now two are married and the youngest is living in Nashville. They would have loved to have been here but it was so close to their weddings, one just having gotten married on September 18th. We also had our now annual family reunion of Melba’s family and they now look forward to this event every year here in the house. We like the upgrades to the house including wireless internet throughout the house.

David and Melba, Wheaton, IL, November 2010

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Being here was a lot of fun, we saw a lot of the island. El Yunque was a lot of fun but left us sore the next day. We ate a lot at an amazing restaurant called Grappa that just opened. The beach here is also very nice. We had so much fun here so thanks for having us.

I wish I could stay longer. You have a beautiful house. God willing, we will be back.

El Yunque, Camuy Caves, and El Morro were the highlights. In downtown Dorado, Pizzeria La Primavera and La Grappa were by far the best entries. The tourism office there, in downtown, is very, very helpful.

Fowlers, Lake Mary, FL, July 2010

Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. We had such a relaxing and hassle-free visit!

The complex is very quiet and we had the pool to ourselves most of the time, but did meet a few MA folks here to escape the weather back home.

We went to many places including Old San Juan by ferry, to El Yunque, Loquillo Beach, Fajardo, to the El Conquistador for a visit; we golfed twice and went to the Spa del Sol! Whew, it sounds busy but it was just perfect.

Again—many thanks—we enjoyed the island, the people—everything!

Anne, John, Joey and Lauren, April 2010

Thank you for sharing your Puerto Rican home with us- we enjoyed it so much!

The first few days we had the entire complex to ourselves—just a few people around—and the pool all for us. It was heavenly, and a nice surprise.

We ventured out this week—to Old San Juan, to Arrecibo and to Fajardo for a Catamaran/snorkeling trip (great!)

Overall, it was a wonderful week, and we were all enchanted with the PR people and culture. Thanks again—we’ll be back!

Kathy and Jeff, Cincinnati, OH, April 2010

My husband, two kids and I loved your home. My son 6-year-old learned to swim while here. My daughter 14 years old loved the water and feeding the ducks. This is our second time here, first time bringing the kids and it’s so wonderful.

Your home is beautiful with gorgeous antiques and this visit and your home has inspired us so much we are now looking into buying a vacation home here. This home is so spacious and kid-friendly. This is our first family vacation and we would like to thank you for making it special by opening up your home to us. This will be an experience we will never forget. Our stay was the 9th thru the 14th of August. I would recommend your home for anyone looking for beauty, peace and comfort.

P.S. I must say you have the best villa on the property.

The Warhurst Family, August 2009

Just a word to thank you for the pleasant vacation we had.

The weather was really contrasting from Montreal!!! Everybody was friendly even the animals!

We found a kitty “Silver” that we called “Sprite” and the children will be reassured if you give it a hug once in a while and maybe a bowl of milk.

Rachel, Montreal, Canada, July 2009

This is our second year here and it is so enjoyable to stay here. Thanks for accommodating us again. Our stay is always relaxing and comfortable. This year was especially exciting because my son got engaged here. That will always make this place special for us. We look forward to our return. Thanks again for opening your house to us. We wish we could have stayed until Saturday.

The Alvarado’s, July 2009

Thank you so much for sharing your villa with us; it was just what we needed. I almost feel ready to go back and face the rest of the school year.

We got to enjoy the beach and pool on the sunny mornings, and the rainy afternoons let us not feel guilty about reading on the porch. Thank you for a fabulous getaway and “babymoon”.

Justin and Eren, May 2009

Nice place. Grounds are beautiful. Took in PR Open. Enjoyed that event very much. Golf at Dorado Beach and Plantation Courses fabulous. Good time had by all of us except for episodes of flu while here.

Pete, Ron, Tom, Dave, March 2009

We had a wonderful week in your beautiful villa! The rain and clouds never slowed us down. We started in Old San Juan the Tuesday night that everyone comes out and parties, even did a little singing and playing on stage… Then we had a rainy, rainy day in the rainforest—which was cool and the bioluminescent lagoon that night. Lots of hanging out on the beach celebrating moments the sun would peek out and show us a little love. Tons of laughs, good local coffee and not a care in the world… just what half-a-dozen or so Medfield moms needed after a snowy winter.

Your home is comfortable, inviting, and easy. Thanks again and we all wish you many, many years of laughs and love with your family in this wonderful little island.

Janice, Brittish, Lisa, Susan, Dawn, Denise and Donna, March 2009

The location was beautiful, we all decided you had the best location on the whole property. We admired the view every meal during our week here. Our 1 ½ year-old loved the pool, playground and rearranging the flags on the putting green. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Prospero año nuevo!

Thanks a bunch for letting us stay here. I’ve had a great time in Puerto Rico. Snorkeling, rainforest, Lakeside Villa, pools, restaurants, the weather and watching my dad make an attempt at Spanish made my trip so fun. I definitely want to go back again. Thank you again for everything.

What a great villa. Truly a place to relax and enjoy the area, with friends and family.

This has been a great vacation !  Thank you so much! I love the view and all the decorations! The ocean is beautiful! The atmosphere was very good! This is a very fun and relaxing house! Thanks!

–Hayley, Rich, and Sylvy, August 2008

The villa was very nice, and the ducks seemed to like the company a lot. The beach was wonderful and we enjoyed so much being able to go to the beach and the pool ANY time we wanted! We’ll be sure to look you back up for our next trip to Puerto Rico!

–The Alvarados, July 2008

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us. It is so private and relaxing here. We enjoyed the beach, pool, ducks and fish.

The rainforest was spectacular, as was Flamenco Beach on Culebra. We went to many beaches that were beautiful, and Old San Juan was quite a place.

–Nancy, Ken, Madison, and Nigel, April 2008
