I was wondering if anyone has stayed at the Palma Real condos. I am wondering if it is a nice place and if the pool is nice. I was looking at a condo on home away. It looks nice but I know how sometimes pictures can be deceiving. Thanks.

welcome to the aruba.com community forum deedee!
paul and i have not stayed at palma real, but have been there a few times.
a number of years ago we looked there with possibly the intent to buy.
we liked the unit, but did not like the congestion of the area.
friends of ours ended up buying the unit that we had looked at.
they use it primarily as a rental/investment and only use it a month a year.

the pool and the pool area is small.
it is a gated community.
from what i have been told, about 50% of the homes are year round residents and the rest rentals.
it is off of palm beach road, across from Lindas and the valero gas station.
i am unsure if the new construction there includes an additional pool.
it is a nice place, but it is somewhat congested with the home's driveways being tight and onstreet parking being crowded..making for very slow driving thru the neighborhood.
there were lots of kids playing ball in the street.

it has a real neighborhood feel and not at all touristy.

I was wondering if anyone has stayed at the Palma Real condos. I am wondering if it is a nice place and if the pool is nice. I was looking at a condo on home away. It looks nice but I know how sometimes pictures can be deceiving. Thanks.

I have friend who stayed there last year. She really liked it and I thought it was very nice. Only thing was she was in a third floor unit and the stairway was a little narrow. Tough climb with groceries. Other than that, she loved it and would go back again. . .

We have stayed at Palma Real three times in the last three years and we're staying there again in October for second trip this year. The property has never felt congested when we've been there. There is one small pool children and two larger pools. The photos that you see in advertising are exactly as they are. There are a number of excellent restaurants within walking distance. It is a gated community and the guards usually walk through the complex every hour or so. The buildings and grounds are well kept. We also have considered buying there. If you'd like some more specific information, feel free to send me a PM.

hi ginette

Palma Real is across from Linda's Pancake and Valero gas station
further down the road from Wacky Wahoo and Sole Mare and Barneys

you may want to google some aruba realtors and make some inquiries.

We'll be staying there for the fifth time this trip. We've always had a very good experience! As Andrea said, just down the road from Wacky Wahoo's and Barney's.
