“Unsecurity & Broken Rusty Pools Gates Not Safe for Kids”
Reviewed January 5, 2006

Broken and rusty pool gates not safe for little kids, roaches in some rooms, sometimes no fresh water at all or no hot water, electricity facilities is terrible and the sponsor Juan Lopez need to be re-trained in " HUMAN RELATIONS " WITH HIS HOTEL GUESSES.

We recently spent one night at the Parador Palmas de Lucia (on the southeast corner of Puerto Rico) and were disappointed. The hotel is near the beach, but not on it. There is a small building between the hotel and the beach, which blocks the view. Maybe there is a better view of the ocean from the second floor rooms, but from our first floor room, we only had a peak.

The building has seen better days. The doors to the interior corridor all looked in really bad shape. We thought from the description of the place that it was new, so were disappointed.

All in all, if we had to do it over again, we would not choose that hotel nor that location. We did pass another hotel nearby, up on a hill, overlooking the ocean. If for some reason we wanted to stay near there again, I would try to find the name of the other hotel.

after spending three nights in noisy and busy san juan, we found this hotel...what a pleasant change...just what we wanted...long sandy beaches with lots of coconut palms....the staff were friendly and helpful and really made you feel welcome...rooms were clean and spacious...this is not for those who want to be waited on hand and foot....but for $90 a night including taxes this is truly a good value....family run and it shows.....

Stayed 03-07 Feb 05, great getaway for couples w/o children. Hidden away on the lower east coast w/ great calendar like scenery. On site restaurant w/ good variety of local cousine. Very lay back staff, so go w/ relaxation in mind and deal with slow but great service. Rooms have necessary amenities, no frills. Nicely manicured garden, open pool, and near by public beach (no services). Shorth drive to larger serviced beach. Hotel has an all-inclusive & ala carte mode for the restaurant; we took the ala carte and has an expanded menu, did great. We would defitnetly return as long we stay childless. During weekdays we had the hotel to ourselves as the local influx departed on Sunday for the workweek, the stargazing was out of this world. Again, think relaxation, low draw...if unable to cope Palmas del Mar is 15 minutes away @ $300/day.

My husband and I stayed at Palmas de Lucia four days on January 2005. We requested a deluxe room package with all-inclusive. The room was nicely equipped, microwave,refrigerator, king bed, cofee maker with compliment coffe ,Cable TV etc... The package was for three days and 2 nights and we requested an extra night because the service was excellent. The hotel is only two minutes from the Toll Highway and aproximately 7-10 minutes from Humacao City which has a huge shopping mall with cinema theaters and lots of restaurants. The only thing we didn't like about the hotel was the beach. It was very dirty, lots of crabs and it was not swimmable. Everything else was lovely fo the price.

I have fond memories of this area from visiting Yabucoa as a child. I stayed here in April of 2004 with my 6 yr old son at Palmas de Lucia for 8 nights and enjoyed the facilities, warm and welcoming staff, and cleanliness of the rooms. All of the staff was bi-lingual which very helpful. My son enjoyed the game room, basketball court and pool. This truly could be considered a family resort. The beach adjacent to this property should be for walking and sunbathing only as the currents and riptides are dangerous, it is nonetheless very picturesque, soothing and a relaxing place to vist. The only recommendation or drawback when traveling with children here is that the menu for the restaurant is somewhat limited for a childrens menu. If you have a rental car there are supermarkets and other "Americanized restaurants" close by to get you over that challenge! This was a memorable trip for my son and myself!

Mu husband and I stayed at this parador for 4 nights and we were totally wrong picking this place. Very very dirty beach - it is not swimable and you cannot lay down or walk on it. Food was OK (we didn't have any other choices), and one of the waiters was so mean, when we came in around 8.30 pm - he said they would be closed at 9 pm and we supposed to come in earlier !!!!! We're so regret that we stayed in this parador.
