Reviews for The Yacht Club @ Palmas Del Mar
Friendliest Marina Ever, 2017-07-20
Captain: , Road Harbour - BVI (789)

We stayed in this marina for 5 weeks starting in April 2017. We had only planned to stay for 2 weeks but loved it so much we stayed longer.

The entrance into the marina is very straight forward. The docks are fixed concrete in very good condition. The marina can be a little swelly at times but is never too bad.

The staff is exceptional. Almost everyone speaks English (very helpful when being directed to the slip). During our stay, we were made to feel like family. The GM of the marina gave us his personal cell number when we arrived and said to call him if we needed anything. Every encounter with staff we were greeted with a smile and told, %u201CNo problem%u201D.

The on-site restaurant is great. Burgers and very good. Very cold beer. Reasonable prices. Many other restaurants in the shopping area just a 10 minute walk away. The shopping area includes a small market. Also, if you have a dinghy, you can dinghy to the %u201Cold marina%u201D for additional restaurants and shops.

The area is secured by 2 security gates. The gates are manned 24/7.

Bathrooms are clean. The bathrooms on the dock do not have AC but the ones inside the main building do. Washer and dryers are very good quality. They are in the process of opening a marine store.

There is a Target Car Rental on site. Wal-Mart and Ralphs Grocery are a couple of miles, Costco is about 15 miles. San Juan is about 30-40 minutes (toll road).

We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it. We wish we could give it more stars!

Nice ad affordable, 2017-06-06
Captain: , Cagliari (109)

All the staff are very helpful, kind and considerate. rate are affordable. We spent one month, not so many boat moored. Clean and well mantained. Good wifi and a new shipchandler is going to be opened, at the moment, if you need something, you have to order in Fajardo.
On te other side, the marina is in "the middle of nowhere", It is in the Palmas deMar Resort, a huge resort. Only one minimarket available has no vegetables and fruits, very expensive. only some restaurants, all in the same place (Palmanova plaza), 5 minute walk from the docks. For make a real galley into a real supermarket, we had to take a taxi (15 + 15 USD).

Highly Recommend!, 2017-05-04
Captain: , Orange Beach, AL (260)

Used marina as a stop over to do some touring.

Incredible staff, lovely facility. $1.50/ft transient rate

Laundry now on site at $2/wash $2/dry

Restrooms in great shape. Cold water showers only. Pool on site

Easy rental car for day trip to San Juan, etc

There is some surge, but manageable.

Could not have been happier to stay.

Excellent facility and staff!, 2017-02-07
Captain: , Ft Lauderdale (84)

The marina was newly built in about 2009 with excellent wide berths and storm protection. The staff is as capable and dedicated as any we have seen... anywhere. We liked the service and support we received so much that we left our 54' monohaul in a slip throughout the summer, dutifully cared for by Roberto. Juanjo, the Harbor Master is a real pro. You can rent a car from the marina (Target Rent-a-car, about $35/day), the pool is beautifully situated overlooking Vieques right next to the restaurant/bar, fuel and pump-out service can be brought to you in your slip, and even two 18-hole golf courses, a grocery mart, and several restaurants are within walking distance. We love this place, and the people, and dispite it's geographical location, will likely make it our home port in the Caribbean.

Great place, great staff!, 2016-12-09
Captain: , South America (778)

Puerto Rico is the country of smiles - we've stayed 10 days in Nov/16 and we have only good things to say about it.

This Marina follows the same standard: very friendly, very helpful, everybody always happy with smile in the face and asking in advance to support /help you.

They have a good pool with ocean view, with a bar (we love Horlando's hamburgers!), the bathrooms are very clean - also there is a target rent a car available. They'd helped us to clear in ...very easy and clean process.

This is a very good place to stop for provisioning (15min from sams club, walgreens, many stores around and 40min from west marine).

We strongly recommend!

First class marina and staff, 2015-11-29
Captain: , San Marcos, TX (865)

We spent the 2015 storm season here and loved it. Everyone on staff makes you feel like family. They are all friendly and helpful with anything you ask. The docks are secure and safe. Great pool with Tiki bar, clean restrooms/showers, excellent fuel, reliable shore power, clean water, free wifi ..... There are several good restaurants, beach bars, shops and a good grocery just a short walk from the marina. A car rental company on property is fairly priced. A local laundry service will pick up/drop off at the marina.The town of Humacao is a 10 min drive, Fajardo 30 min, San Juan 1 hour. It is 12nm from Vieques, 35nm to Culebra and the marina entrance is well marked and easy to transit. Recommend good chafe protection for your lines since there is surge through the SE facing entrance. It is obvious the management and staff take great pride in their work and the premier level of service they provide.

Very nice facility, 2015-02-27
Captain: , Tarpon Springs (250)

nice Marina, staff is very helpful. Convenient to full service boat yard, shopping, provisioning nearby. if you need a car, onsite rental cars are available for 1 hour trip to Fajardo, West Marine, Sams Club etc. Good jumping off point for SVI

Palmas de Mar, 2014-03-02
Captain: , Palmas del Mar, Puerto Rico (10)

As of March 2014 this marina is almost empty and poorly staffed. Looks like they are going to change owners. Otherwise, it's a fairly new facility with reasonably priced fuel, and adjacent full service boat yard and access to the amenities of the 5 star resort community of Palmas del Mar. Worth a visit!

What a marina!!!, 2014-01-21
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (132)

This is an excellent marina and really good location to jump off to the islands. Helpful staff, dock hands ready, Iris at the office went an extra mile to find us a rental car, we got there on Dec. 29 and there where not cars available anywhere, but she got us a car the day after we arrived there. Stayed there 9 nights, you find good places to eat right at the place and if you got a car your options will expand endless. 55 min. Ride to San Juan, great roads, even closer by car to San Juan than from the popular Fajardo. Fuel right at the slip, and excellent price, don't forget to refuel there. Juanjo the manager is an excellent guy as well as Orlando. Great people. Only thing we didn't liked was the wind, it never stopped in 9 days, even an night!

Great Marina, 2013-05-24
Captain: , Seattle, WA (445)

Great marina! A little rolly but the service at this marina makes up for the roll. 4 guys helped us dock and the ladies in the office Iris & Janet who hepled us were awesome. Tiki Hut resteraunt on site is great for a drink or beverage! The swimming pool has a spectacular view. Great area to walk around with lots of rother esteraunts and ice cream. Great stop

Excellent marina for non transient boats, 2013-03-06
Captain: , Norfolk, VA (20)

Modern marina in a very wealthy environment but reasonable price (we paid $1.35/foot). The wifi is good when it is working but too many people on it slows it down tremendously.
There are no laundry facility, only one rough one in Humacao nearby. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.

great stop and well worth it, 2012-05-02
Captain: , miami,fl (2241)

we stopped to get some boat work done and stock up on parts - after being out 18 months and going thru a lot of boat supplies these folks could not have been more helpful -
it is clean, fun, very very customer oriented and very helpful with the staff going out of their way to help you
we almost never stay in marinas and this was most definately a real treat
west marine and shopping at farjado is only an hour away and propane is 15 mins with rental car (and $6 per 10lbs)
i wish we could stay for a long time
c dock may get a bit of a swell at it's end but the rest is fine
they have pump out on the docks everywhere
someplace to really pamper the admiral

Wonderful Stay, 2012-02-14
Captain: , Cleveland, Ohio (50)

I will not repeat everything the prior posters have said, but we agree with all of them. The staff was very friendly and helpful from the time we arrived until we departed. Water and Electric are provided at near cost and the dockage rate is very good. Diesel price was the best we have seen recently. Fuel and pumpout at your dock. Nice Tiki bar. We would highly reccomend it.

Great facility and great staff/management, 2011-04-02
Captain: , Port St Lucie (514)

When we arrived dock hands were waiting and the manager Juan was there. His only question to my wife was "how many days can we spoil you?". This was the best place we've stayed yet and we will be back. The huge break water does almost completely eliminates surge but a very small amount gets through but we were very comfortable. The marina will shuttle you to any of the resort attractions including restaurants, mini mart, golf, tennis. You can also rent a compact car at the Marina from Target for $35 per day. fuel is available at many slips or the fuel dock.

We'll be back to this place often!

Palmas Del Mar Yacht Club, 2011-01-13
Captain: , St John USVI currently Homeport Marina Gulf Shores AL (234)

Friendly staff, nice marina, car rental onsite and not far from Sams for wholesale provisioning. The market there is very expensive. The restaurants are good there near the marina and they have a great grass hut tiki bar at the end of the dock.

Palmas del Mar Yacht Club, 2011-01-07
Captain: , Pensacola, Fl (83)

First class marina, concrete piers, Massive Steel pipe pilings filled with concrete, first class service, VERY competitive rates. The ONLY thing that is negative is the surge in the marina can get tiresome.

The Yacht Club @ Palmas, 2010-05-27
Captain: , Sarasota, Ft. Lauderdale (643)

First class place with first class people. Very friendly and well run. With great prices on dockage. The on site ships store is now open as well as the pool bar. Pool has a fantasic view by the way. Several bars and resturants within walking distance. As well as a nice market, shops and hair saloon. There is even a doctors office open in the evening!

If you go out to eat check out the "the beer garden". There is another name for it but I just can't remember it right now. Great food at great prices. Fantastic fried fish. Family owned and run. If you feel like having an extra good time get a "Jay shot" or two.

New Marina, 2009-05-02
Captain: , Delray Beach, FL (83)
