“Fabulous time at the Palmas de Lucia!”
Reviewed October 25, 2010

We just returned from a week in PR where we used this hotel as a jumping off point to see the south east end of the island. We had a king size, very comfortable bed, with a patio on ground level. The room was spotless, maid service daily, nice sized room and good air conditioning and frig. Yabucoa the town has a nice Ralph's supermarket, and Walgreens for any drinks or snacks you would want. The owners Juan and Maria Lopez are very gracious hosts, the front desk ladies the best, and the bartenders make a mean Pina Colada! The beach just down from the hotel is public and not maintained by the resort, the water was choppy during our stay, so we went about 40 minutes away to Luquillo Beach where the water was calm and the beach maintained. El Yunque is about 45 minutes down the expressway, and the night kayaking in Farjardo is about the same. The internet is password protected, simply call the front desk for the password and no worries. The pool and grounds were beautifully maintained, the work out room now has a new treadmill, only had a chance to use it once but very nice. We only ate at the restaurant once for breakfast and it was good. Loved PR and this hotel, hope to see you again soon!

I went with my husband to celebrate our first aniversary. Its easy to find the place if you follow instructions. The facilities are clean and you have a balcony in the room that you can sea the ocean. The staff is good. The food is out of this world. I can stay there everyday just for the chef. All the food was great, I already missed it. The place is small, but is pretty, in harmony with the ambient. The pool is good. They have in the facilities a voleiball area and basketball area too. The only think that they need is a hair dryer in each room, I have to wait to use one. In general everithing was ok. I would definetly come back next year.

My wife and I needed a break from the day to day stresses and this was perfect. The facilities were excellent, the beach was within walking distance (3 min. walk); the food was excellent and so was the service. The hospitality was excellent as well. The only negative comment I can make is that the wireless internet service was non-existent in my room. In this case that was not really an issue as this ensured that I focus on what I came there for (disconnect from day to day stuff). Overall I would certainly return and also recommend this hotel to anyone.

Location:
Nice location, really close to the beach, nice and calm.
Reception:
Really nice and the girls were very courteous.
Restaurant:
In the mornings you may find the service a little slow but the food is awesome and the service is great!
Pool:
The pool is big, it was clean and very nice, the hammocks made it perfect!
Recreational areas:
They have a basketball court near the pool, my husband and I had a good time playing. They have a volleyball arena court, very nice too. Also they have a mini gym with a Sauna for two. We used the gym but they really need to consider changing the cardio machine for new ones, they are notable deteriorated. We didn’t use it but they have a game room too.
Room:
The king bed is very comfortable. The room was cozy and clean. The bathroom is big and the closets are spacious. The balcony with view to the pool and the beach is very nice. They had a coffee maker and they supply a coffee bag per day, perfect for coffee lovers like me! They had a small refrigerator perfect for having drinks and snacks for the night. The A/C was working perfectly.
Internet access: In the rooms, pool and restaurant. Perfect!
We really enjoyed the time in this place, 100% recommended!

The first day i checked in i eas moved 4 times! first room sliding doors would not lock, second room frig broken, third room sliding doors not locking, forth room phone did not work. met with the owner to discuss this and she claimed i under paid my hotel stay. I stated that was what i was quoted...her responce was her front desk employee was taking the cut in pay for their error....I got no compensation for being moved 3 times and for the phone not working. The owner herself stated she was docking front desk fo the errors of room charge. but owner state she was not losing no money. I was not compensated for my move from room to room and for non functioning phone!!!!! This hotel was a joke even better the GREEDY owner was more of a joke!!!!!!!!

We came today from a weekend at the Parador Palmas de Lucía. Is the best place for a great vacation. All the excellent attention we got and the service was great.

The food was the best. We got the All-inclusive package (which, by the way, recommend it), so we didn't worry about nothing. You go to the restaurant, write down the time you want to eat and what you want, you come at that time and give the room number and 5 minutes later... voila! food is at your table. Quality of food is great.

You have a room with a small balcony but with a beautiful view. A/C worked great. We had a small glitch with the hot water, but we didn't understand at first, this is a green hotel. It's a solar heater, and the first day it wasn't so hot... but the next two days, it was solved.

The pool, albeit small, is was perfect if you want to relax, even enjoy it with your family, The beach near is beautiful.

This is a green hotel, so you will se reciclying and reuse tips all over, but it works.

Looking forward to come back next year.

Last December American Airlines had a $250 Austin/San Juan round trip special that we couldn't pass up and pushed the "Buy" button! I mentioned the cheap airfare and our friends (other retirees) said "we're in". With a little research we decided to circumnavigate the island staying at paradors and sample the fine Porto Rican food and the rums. What a great idea! I booked our rooms via Orbitz.com at $127+tax/room/night.

Palmas de Lucia was our first stop out of San Juan. We had no problem locating it and were pleasantly surprised by this 2 star hotel. Checking in was a fun experience and they even called the bartender out from the bar to get us a drink. We were assigned rooms 104 and 105. They were clean and comfortable with small patios to enjoy morning coffee. The food at the restaurant was good, but a little pricy. Regardless, the drinks and company were good as well as the service. The beach is about a half a block away as is very nice. We only had time to stay here one night, but I would have like to stay more. This parador is really a three star.
