Let me tell you my story, and take you with me to beautiful Puerto Rico! We rented a condo from "another" property management company in Palmas Del Mar, (a sprawling self contained resort community boasting 2700 acres). Upon arrival, there was a mix up with our condo, and we weren't able to check in until the next day. We were extremely stressed out and exhausted after a long day of travel. The security guard called Eric, (the owner of one of the largest property management companies~Oceano). Eric drove up minutes later and came to our rescue. Eric apologized for wearing white socks with loafers, even though it was nearly 11pm, which made us laugh. He offered to put us up for the night in one of his luxury homes free of charge. As a small business owner and former kindergarten teacher, I don't often get the chance to spend much time in the lap of luxury. This six bedroom home was just that, a majestic castle amid a lush setting of giant ferns and hanging vines. The following morning was serenity itself, waking to the ocean crashing below. When I opened up the veranda doors at 7am, the forest sang to me, I was overwhelmed with a sense of being in the exact place I was meant to be. The 3 mile stretch of white sand beaches set against the rain forest was breath taking, this home has one of the most pristine views in Palmas Del Mar, natural and unspoiled. The level of comfort was over the top, the beds were amazing, all of the women commented how they had slept deeply even though we woke early! Excited to explore the island, we set out for a full week of adventure. We ended up staying right there at Palmas Del Mar for most of our activities. The resort community has every amenity you could dream up, with sugar sprinkled on top. We rented a golf cart, and had a blast zooming around the different areas of the property. We made several memorable day excursions, exploring the expansive white sand beaches, restaurants and bars, the casino (YES ON SITE!). Golf courses, tennis club, yacht club and sea turtle nesting grounds at Palmas. We were fortunate enough to meet a catamaran captain who took us out for a day of snorkeling and sport fishing. What a perfect day, we had a delicious red snapper grilled on the barbecue that evening and enjoyed the fruits of our labor! There are many excursion businesses located in Palmas Del Mar including snorkeling, island tours, fishing and sailing. Palmas Del Mar literally offers everything an adventure seeker or even the workaholic in need of some serious R & R could ever dream of. I highly recommend Eric and his company for booking your next vacation. They offer concierge service, full housekeeping, transportation, everything to create a dream vacation with very little worry on the travelers end. Next time I am calling Eric at Oceano first! Thank you for the week of a lifetime in Puerto Rico, where nature is in it's true form, jaw dropping from start to unforgettable finish.
