We were a group of 10 – 7 adults and 3 children aged 8 months, 22 months and 5 years old. The staff at the villa were amazing. They were helpful, kind and accommodating. Our chef prepared meals for the children and wonderful meals for the adults. The beach was extremely accessible, particularly with the two golf carts we rented. The pool was lovely but a bit cold.

The 3 bedrooms in the main house were lovely, as were the common rooms. The two bungalow rooms were attached to the staff quarters which created a bit of a lack of privacy. There was also a funky odor in the bungalow bathrooms, but not at all in the main house bathrooms.

We wished that there were more games available for adult evening activities since we were housebound with the kids. It would also have been nice to have beach chairs/sand toys available to take to the beach that was close to the villa since that beach had no facilities. The beach, like many in the caribbean region nowadays, is having a seaweed infestation. It is being managed nicely, with a filter system and with tractors cleaning it up off the beach, but it is a shame.

All in all, we had a wonderful time.


GREAT TIME! * * * * *

Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect trip with eight of my best girl friends. The staff was wonderful and attentive to every detail. The house and pool were magnificent. It was a relaxing, delicious and stress free vacation for us all!

The house was perfect, the staff was extremely helpful with planning our whole trip and taking care of us during our entire stay. The grounds were beautiful and the huts out by the pool were a great place to sleep, nice and cool. There were several places to eat, drink and beach on the property. The service was top notch every where we went. All of the food we ate was excellent everywhere we went. Coco Bongos is a must do! We also rented a private boat and went snorkeling, I would also highly recommend doing that too. I can’t say enough great things about this island and the people on it! We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Nicely situated on the land, on a golf course & near the beach. House has good space with great room open to dining area & next to beautiful kitchen. We chose to have a cook who was wonderful, Sweet & skilled. The maid & maintenance man were also dear people and of great help. The manager who visits every day Is a pro golfer & gave my grandson a much enjoyed golf lesson. He is also the person who speaks english if you are not fluent in Spanish. My family 8 adults & 3 children were all happy with our visit of five nights. The only reason I did not give five stars ( although not a game changer) is that we missed having umbrellas at poolside near chaises for much needed shade/sun protection at certain times in the day. We also would have enjoyed the set up of a volley ball net or other family oriented lawn game ( ie: bocce ball).

This is our second time renting a villa with the team at Palmera. This villa is much nicer than the pictures. We were a group of eight for a corporate retreat. Everything was excellent!

GREAT PLACE * * * * *

Just got back. Photos don’t do it justice. Place has a great location. It’s clean and spacious. Nella the maid keeps place very clean, sets a great table and is always available. If you go, get a private chef, more than worth the money. I have rented other homes from Anders and he never disappoints. His staff is top notch. Stig, his right hand man, comes to house every day to make sure all good. It is not easy to please 5 couples from NY (we can be a pain in the ass) but somehow we had no complaints. Great job guys and thanks!
