#1: Besides just having your own bedroom, you'll have one or more family room(s) (living rooms), dining room, kitchen, swimming pool area, outdoor area and garden to enjoy - all to yourself. Our vacation rental properties measure from 4,000 sq. ft. up to 12,000 sq. ft. with pool and outdoor garden areas. In comparison, that's about 10 times bigger than most hotel rooms. The pool and lounge chairs are yours and you don't have to worry about not being able to find a lounge chair around the pool or other people getting up a like 6 am to "reserve" lounge chairs, which is not cool and is annoying because they might not even show up until hours later. If you're a family or a group of friends, staying in a villa may be more affordable than staying in a hotel. You may also save money on meals as you'll be paying supermarket prices for groceries instead of restaurant prices for meals.

#2: You can decide when you want to have breakfast, lunch and dinner and you don't have to worry about eating when the restaurants serve meals. If you have a chef, your meals can be catered specifically for your likes. You don't have to worry about a dress code. If your kids finish before you do, they can leave the table and run around without you having to worry about them...much. Or if they want to eat in the living room while watching TV while the rest eat at the table, that's okay too.

#3: With Palmera Villas, you'll always get a personal concierge to help you coordinate your vacation from A to Z before you arrive, so every little detail is taken care of. You'll also have a concierge (villa manager) who will be your go-to person during your stay. Our concierge staff is English speaking. When you stay at a vacation rental, you get all the comforts of home without any of the work. Our vacation rental properties are staffed so you don't have to worry about cleaning, making the beds, etc. and we can provide additional services like a chef, grocery shopping, etc. The level of service and attention that you'll get from our villa staff is insanely good. Of course, if you don't want to be bothered, you can just say so. Otherwise, you'll get a lot more attention and personalized service from our staff than you would ever get in a hotel where you're just a person among thousands of other hotel guests.

#4: Whether you're traveling with your family or friends, everyone will have more quality time spent together in the villa where it's just you and nobody else. It's less stressful because you don't have to e.g., hurry through dinner because the restaurant needs to change the seating or worry about when the bar closes - you can stay up as long as you want and just focus on getting the most of your time together. Time is on your side and our staff will work around your schedule - not the other way around.

#5: Staying in a vacation rental gives you the most privacy you can ever have on a vacation. It's your vacation villa and you don't have to worry about dining or relaxing in crowded places with a bunch of strangers...it's just you, and the people you care about and actually want to spend your vacation with.


Of course, staying in a vacation rental is not suitable or desirable for everyone! Having stayed in villas ourselves when we travel for our personal vacation (e.g., to Miami and San Diego where villas don't come with any staff or service!), we can just say that it's changed the way we travel and want to travel. There's just no comparing the level of comfort, flexibility, freedom and ease that you get when staying in a vacation rental...and we just don't feel like we get that same experience staying in a hotel, not even a 5-star super luxurious hotel.
