“Another Great Visit”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Myself and my fiance returned from our 2nd visit to Palmera Mar on 19th August. We stayed for one week. bed and breakfast. We arrived at around 7.30pm to be greeted by the friendly receptionist who informed us that the reception was now open until 9pm. This was much better than the previous year. We paid for a sea view and we were given a 2nd floor sea/ pool view which was fantastic. As I have stated in my previous review, this is a fantastic holiday base. You are within walking distance of both Amadores and Puerto Rico beach. We enjoyed the walk but preferred to get a taxi back up to the hotel! You are also close the to Europa Centre which as last year did not disappoint with its choice of bars and restaurants.The hotel is generally clean. The only downside is that the towels were not changed once during our week stay. This is something that should be reviewed. We had a miserable night sleep on the first night due to the one hard pillow we had each. I asked the maid the next morning for another pillow each and this was quickly provided. The breakfast wasn't the best and I would not pay for it again. This hotel has fantastic views and is a great holiday base. We would definitely return again!

Warning!! If you go to Puerto Rico for lunch, diner, breakfast DO NOT GO to restaurant called Beach Club above harbour it is terrible! Hard or uncooked or old food served there. AVOID!!!!
Following reviews and our own experience in Amadores here is our Palmera Mar review!
Accommodation: spacious, big bathroom/toilet, beds as I said below, terrace big with 3 chairs, table, and 2 loungers, view incredible, but, but, but......when we get there, we were welcome by friendly Michaela who said we have book basic room (not true) and we have been upgraded to premium see view. By looking at booking sheet we do not agree with this but following other reviews it looks like this is the way of making customers happy! :)
Location: Well it is up to the hill, but it is rock island, so If are a good climber, climb. If you are lazy get taxi (very cheep). Also you could rent a car from http://www.las-palmas-24.com/index.php?short-time-car-rental-las-palmas. No Hidden fees, full insurance!!
Air con: Yes, we didn't notice there is no air con when booking hotel, to bad for us and anybody willing to get one, no, there is no air con.
Beds. Yes I suffered from insomnia, hard beds is one thing but my girl slept well and she didn't complain.
Towels: Since we have been in Portugal we have decided to take our own towels everywhere we go, so we did it this time, but towels was changed every day.
Bedding: Yes, it is true, changed once a week.
Staff: Friendly, and helpful.
Pool: Clean, Jacuzzi, pool, kids area, bar open depending on barman, 11am - 13pm and open 7pm-8pm, beer 3euro
Restaurant: open in some hours, but we didn't use it. We use Puerto Rico restaurants and Europa Shopping Centre which is only 5min walk from hotel.
Views: are from National Geographic, must be seen, amazing!
Be aware of Irish youngsters, noisy alcoholics but when you report to reception, it is quieter some nights.
Food: You wont die from hunger, you would rather gain on weight if eat everything they serve in restaurants, bars, pubs, etc. I gain kg after 7 days coz I eat all :( Anyway enjoy but be vigilant :)) Also you should visit Europa centre in Puerto Rico, it is good for shopping, food, and local activities!!

Hotel very nice and friendly. The hotel staff was helpful and welcoming. The rooms were nice. The swimming pool and the garden was great. Restaurant at the hotel was great food and amazing views. Beautiful beach with wonderful sand. Shops and bars are nearby. I would recommend this hotel to families who want to relax and have a good time.

Great views and apartments big enough but didnt like the old tv i had in my room. Its one of does old tv´s where you have to put money to be able to see. Channels where not clear. Come on guys, its year 2013 and not the 80th´s. Other than that, staff are friendly and rooms are clean.

Room Tip: Top rooms have better view but they will also cost a bit more :)

Beautiful area and beach. Very steep hill to get up but there's taxis if you prefer. Rooms were good size and clean, balcony was fab. Nice square up the hill with bars and restaurants, quiet beach bars down the hill and a short taxi ride into Porto Rico for a livelier area with many bars discos restaurants and shops. Short boat ride to porto Morgan is highly recommended as this is a lovely place. Avoid the timeshare touts-we lost half a day to them (although to be fare we gained a free dolphin trip for our time which was wonderful)

Me and my boyfriend booked for the views and weren't disappointed. The room was lovely and clean and staff were friendly. The view (as long as you are not on the pool level) is beautiful. Swimming pool was cleaned on a daily basis as were the rooms. Will be going back next year.

We have just come back from here after 2 weeks. My kids & I loved it. Weather was 30 celsius plus every day, not a cloud in the sky & nice clean pool. Never a problem getting a sunbed, even if you got to the pool at midday! No aircon in rooms but bearable with window & door open at night & also felt very secure leaving open at night.

We arrived after 1am after flight delay to find key stuck to glass reception door but when did finally meet staff, all very friendly & all knew a bit of English. The roads to beach or Europa center are quite steep so not ideal if have problems walking but taxis are reasonable.

We saw 1 cockroach in 2 weeks in a corridor. The cleaners changed the sheets & towels once a week. The rooms were cleaned every other day. Basic rooms but what do you expect, it's not The Ritz!!!!

They are refurbing all the rooms so all should be done by next summer. There are a couple of rooms with views of walls but 95% have views over the cove. We would go back again.

Room Tip: If you get a room on floor 8, the top floor, you may have a view of a wall!
