Our stay at Villas de Pallermo was a pleasure. The villas are spacious, clean, and complete with many amenities for a comfortable, long-term stay. The two full rooms and bathrooms are great for various group sizes, and the kitchen is equipped enough to accommodate a decent amount of cooking. Clean and comfortable beds, great maid services. The balconies overlook incredible...

Went on a Couples trip for a long weekend on a groupon deal. We got a very good price on this hotel, and the exchange rate for Cordobas (local currencies) was very good when we were traveling. Pros - great view, we were in Condo 33, or 36 can't remember, highly recommend, beautiful. More of a house than a condo,...

I love Villas de Palermo. The villa I stayed in (#49) was a 2bd 2ba. The A/C kept things nice and cool inside. It was around 95F during the day when I was there in March 2013. The real star is the view from the patio. I had two rocking chairs and a table on the patio where a spent...

Sitting on a hill in San Juan del Sur is this little gem. The Villa's were beautiful and spacious with a full kitchen and two full bathrooms. The views from the upstairs balcony we're probably the best in SJDS. The staff was attentive and helpful. A bit of a language barrier, but overall we're friendly. The pool is clean and...

The staff are lovely, friendly, and very attentive. The pool is beautiful and refreshing. The Villa was excellent, very comfy and safe feeling. The food however at the restaurant was only average, and disappointing. It is also overpriced. Next time I would look for a place to stay on the water.

Stayed @ Palermo for a month in Jan. Very nice villa. Windows had screens, but beautiful large doors did not, but I had no real problem with insects. Talked to three couples at the pool who reported scorpions in their room. I had door open late at night, every night, never saw a scorpion the entire time I was there....

We stayed in unit #20. In terms of the complex as a whole, it is well maintained and clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The pool is nice, with a view out to the ocean. It is built on a hillside, so depending on your location, you may have quite a hill to walk up from the pool/restaurant...

The kitchen supplies were sparse, not even a strainer. The restaurant was overpriced and the food mediocre. Maria is fantastic! She was able to arrange for a taxi to the Dr. office when my daughter developed a seafood allergy, they were ready and waiting for us when we arrived. The shuttle service was not reliable and one day we waited...

I must agree that semicolon1 has hit the nail on the head. Your experience at Villas de Palermo will in great part be determined by the furnishings provided by the owner of the unit you are renting. This is not a reason to hesitate renting there, however. The staff is outstanding and really is dedicated to providing a satisfying experience...

As I understand it, even though the fifty villas are structural duplicates (or near duplicates) of each other, what you get at Villas de Palermo depends partly on whom you are renting from. That is, some come with well-equipped kitchens, more advanced electronics, better and more plentiful outdoor furniture (hammocks, for instance), ceiling fans, and the like. If you have...
