Lovely Port Aransas Get Away
I keep returning to this lovely condominium in Port Aransas. It is clean, light, comfortably furnished, and just seems to have everything I need. I also appreciate the chair, umbrellas and restrooms down at the beach and helpful staff that takes care of them. I encourage anyone to take advantage of this lovely place.

Great location - amazing staff
The Pamilla beach location is ideal. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. We were pleased with the amenities as well as the staff provided beach bon fire and smores with live music. Exceptional in every way. This unit was clean and well appointed. We loved our stay.

This Condo is the Best!!
We LOVE the condo we stay at!! It's beautiful, in immaculate condition, and is sooo relaxing to stay at. It is well equipped and has everything we need. It's also in a great location for easy access to Port A or Corpus. We will be going back to this condo many times!!! :)

Great beach condo
The condo was gorgeous and much larger than I expected. Renting the golf cart on site was so easy and having someone cater to you on the beach was spoiling. I loved the weekend and will always try to stay here.

Beautiful Condo--Never Disappoints
We recently stayed at this condo again and, as always, it never disappoints. It was very clean, organized and in perfect condition. We love this beautiful condo so much that we call it our home away from home!

Port A golf course condo
I have mixed feelings about my stay ... the condo and furniture, kitchen and kitchen supplies, etc were just beautiful. The view was just awful. It literally looks out onto the street- and with all of the construction going on - not post-Harvey, but just to complete the resort, we did not feel comfortable opening the curtains at all. Therefore, despite the lovely accommodations, I didn’t like being inside because it was so closed off. Also, I knew there was a boardwalk because it stated there was in the condo description. HOWEVER.... it is so inconvenient and FAR from the condos. No way my 84 year old Mom could have walked back by herself like she can from some of the others. LOVED having the a/c bathroom on the beach as well as golf carts to rent. That was great. My husband was super disappointed that the golf course was closed. We talked to the employees at guest services to get our wrist bands and they just told us they were closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Imagine his surprise when he tried to call for a tee time on Wednesday morning! The actual condo is lovely - don’t know if I would stay again though. There were no sample size soaps or shampoos as mentioned so I texted the number given if I needed anything. No answer for 6 hours and then they said to go buy it myself and turn in the receipt- terrible spelling and grammar by the way. By this time I had called a turnkey number, had been put on hold, lost connection twice, called back, waited for 20 minutes and finally spoke to someone! She said someone would call us locally and that happened quickly and the problem was solved. It sounds silly- but we just wanted some soap to wash our hands with after using the bathroom. The condo was lovely- but I’m not sure I would stay there again.

This condo is a great place to stay! Clean, attractive, well stocked, and had everything we needed. The condo was comfortable to just hang out in to read, visit, watch tv, etc. Great walk across the boardwalk to an area of the beach set out for Palmillo folks. Can't wait to get back.

Love This Condo!
Staying here is like being home! This condo is beautiful yet comfortable with all rooms having plenty of space for everyone. The pool is also beautiful and complete with a bar where you can also order food. The private area on the beach is amazing and so relaxing. We love this place and can't wait until our next visit!

Lovely place to stay
Our rental was beautifully decorated and a perfect beach place. It was quiet and perfect for our family of four. It was fairly clean but the floor could have been cleaned a bit better. My infant is crawling and got her knees and hands a little dirty.

I have stayed in this beautiful condo multiple times and is my go-to place. I like the location, the walk down to the beach, and all the amenities the condo itself affords. It is clean, comfortable, with quality furnishings. My home away from home.

The unit was in impeccable shape, had a very nice pool area but when booking this room it said it was on the beach but you could not see the ocean and it also said boardwalk to the beach which was misleading because you had about a 1/2 a mile walk before you even get to the boardwalk. So don’t plan on trekking your stuff to the beach, you will have to drive

LOVELY PLACE This condo was beautiful, accurate to the pictures and perfect for my family. Spacious open plan front room and kitchen with dining table. Master bed had a kind size bed which was perfect for my husband, myself, a 3 yr old and 6 month baby. Second room had twin beds and bathroom right next to it, teenage daughter loved having her own room. Lovely pool and easy access to the beach. I wouldn't recommend you walk to the beach especially with little ones. We paid to have an umbrella and chairs set up for us and drove there. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend this place and hope to be back soon. LOVELY PLACE This condo was beautiful, accurate to the pictures and perfect for my family.

Port A Vacay
Had a wonderful experience during our stay at Palmilla Beach Resort. Condo was spacious and fit our needs perfectly. The experience with Turnkey was great as well, outside of the 10:00 am checkout time. Seems a bit too early, considering the price of the rental.

Great little vacay in Port A
We had a great time staying in the condo in Port Aransas. The condo was clean, open and bright. The resort was great. The only downside was that the resort bar and restaurant are only open until 8 pm Sunday-Wednesday and 9 pm Thursday-Saturday. I understand that the resort is still being built so it probably doesn't make financial sense to stay open later. I'm hopeful that once the resort is built out more, the restaurant and bar will stay open later. It would also be nice if the resort had a gym that guests could use while staying there. Overall, it was a great stay and we were really happy.

This was our first time in Palmilla. It's a very cozy community, still developing with a lot of potential. The pool was great, restaurant was excellent, and the beach not very far. We loved being able to go to Port A on our golf car. The house we stayed at was good but nothing amazing. very clean and convenient for a 2 night stay. The only thing I recommend is taking your own beach and pool towels. Turnkey rentals is also very responsive and easy to work with.

Could Be Better
When we arrived at our condo, we were very impressed with the furnishings and space. Although, there are some issues that we ran into that caused us to be less than pleased and comfortable during our stay. The floors of the condo were dirty and did not appear to be mopped. The patio was extremely dirty. I decided to sweep it off because it was gross and not appealing with the drapes open. We began seeing small roaches in the kitchen throughout our stay. A large roach was dead in-between the fridge. When I was putting dishes away, a large live roach was sitting in the cabinet. This was disgusting and I now hate that my family was using those dishes. On Thursday our internet went out, when my wife called for assistance, she was turned away for not being the “reservation holder” although she had all of the information for the reservation and could verify. I was on the ocean at the time and could not assist. We called again once I came back at around 5:30p and was told they would look into it. Our phones have zero service inside of the condo and the internet did not return until Friday morning. TV service was not accessible during this time and an attempt to use the TurnKey device to find places to go and eat failed during this outage as well. The toaster provided in the kitchen does not function without holding the handle down. The electrical was very janky. Hard to figure out which switches turned on what and the dimmer had to be moved around to even make some lights turn on. The entire Roku service is entirely outdated. I haven’t seen that version of Netflix since they began offering streaming years ago. I also have never seen the technology that outdated in any of the vacation rentals we have stayed in. The Palmilla team was great, they were the saving grace of our trip. For the amount of money that we reserved this condo for, I did not expect to run into so many

This location is fantastic. The Palmilla...
This location is fantastic. The Palmilla amenities (chairs and umbrellas!) are great, and the staff were all very helpful. This condo was tight for 6 people. The guest room is small, so best for children. I think it's a good fit for families with small kids, but not great for more than two adults. Would definitely recommend renting a golf cart - the walk to the beach is pretty far, especially when returning with tired kids.

Port A vacation.
It was very good, only one constructive criticism, would suggest you advise guests ahead of schedule that beach chairs and umbrellas have to be reserved in advance, We arrived Thursday and all were already reserved for Friday and Saturday.

The Condo we stayed in at...
The Condo we stayed in at Palmilla Beach was very lovely. It was about a one mile walk to the beach. We noticed that a lot of guests had golf carts they used to get to the beach. Nothing in the listing said anything about having to walk so far to the beach and that it would be a good idea to rent a golf cart. We rented beach chairs and umbrellas on Friday and had a lovely view of the water. On Saturday, our chairs were set up behind seven chairs and 4 umbrellas. We had no view of the water! Only of the people in front of us. We were later told that the people in front of us were property owners and got preferred status. I understand this policy, but would have liked to be told about it and given the opportunity to cancel. I would recommend this property, but wish the listing agent would have been honest about what your getting. The Condo is great. However, you are going to have extra expenses not disclosed in the listing.

Great experience, beautiful condos, plenty of room , clean, wonderful pool, quiet. I recommend renting a golf cart to drive over to the beach-it's a bit of a walk especially for the little ones. And the golf cart comes in handy when wanting to make a quick trip into town for food or ice cream. We really enjoyed our stay! My only recommendation is to add some kitchen hand towels to the facility! : )

Friendly and quiet environment, beautiful property and condos; however, we experienced many tiny roaches throughout the kitchen area on the countertops, also water was not draining normally in the guest bathroom sink and tub.
