We stayed at La Palmilla and it was very nice. The staff was amazing and friendly. The condo was extremely clean and well taken care of. Overall our stay was wonderful and I would recommend staying here. (I am very picky about where I stay)

Loved this place!
Palmilla Resort was a great experience from the pool, to the beach (with private ac bathrooms), to the staff. The condo was comfortable and very nice. Would totally go back and stay here again.

Beautiful and Convenient
The condo is much bigger than it looked in pictures and very nice. Super close to the beach, the pool and the city.
It was clean and pretty well appointed. The staff there was super nice and extremely helpful. The pool was large and clean.
Overall I highly recommend and we'll definitely be back!

All Around Excellent
We got everything we were hoping for and more from the Seas the Day Condo at Palmilla Beach Resort! The condo was clean, spacious and beautiful. The staff was friendly and the pool area was so nice! We had a great stay during out week in Port A and will be back and would highly recommend!

Beautiful condo, perfect for two couples. When traveling with friends it's unusual to find a two bedroom with two king beds, and that is what drew me to this condo. It was large and clean with all the comforts of home. Palmilla Beach Resort has everything you'd expect from a large hotel resort: a restaurant, large beautiful pool, chairs and umbrellas, even bathrooms on the beach and much more. Can't wait to return!

Two couples rented a two bedroom condo at Palmillia Golf Resort for three nights. We found it to be have lovely furnishings, comfortable beds and nice linens. It also had a WELL equipped kitchen - coffee bean grinder and great supply of seasonings and oils a big plus. The TurnKey process for reserving and checking in and out was efficient.
We did notice a few negatives - Master bedroom was missing two pillows cases, the Dumpster emptied at 5:33 AM waking the couple in the guest bedroom, there was some food (hard candy) in and under sofa, and the toilet seat and shower head in guest bath was loose.
Some suggestions for an improved satisfactory experience include - adding room darkening shade in guest bedroom for porch light and in master bedroom for flashing light house lights across road, and adding Kleenex boxes in baths.
We recommend this condo to others and plan to rent it again! We had a wonderful fishing vacation.

Fishing and golf getaway
We came down for a quick trip to recharge the batteries. The condo was very comfortable. The beds were very cozy. The kitchen was very well equipped. The condo itself was very tastefully decorated. Turnkey and the resort staff were vey helpful and available if we had questions. We will certainly rent this property again.

Palmilla Beach: Great Design in Port A
As others have said in their reviews of this property, it's a lot more spacious in person than the images would have you believe. A very large 2br/2bath, tons of natural light, spotlessly clean and very welcoming from owners who take very clear care of their investment.
The bedding in both bedrooms is truly outstanding: High-thread count, pillow-topped and the kind of bed that cocoons you throughout the night. I slept incredibly well while I was there.
I'm a stickler for details and the owners of this unit clearly put a lot of thought into what products they put into their home. Palm restaurant servingware, high-caliber cutlery, a nice appliance package. It was a welcome change from so many other properties in Port A that barely provide the basics or are too outdated for it to really matter.
Palmilla is still under serious construction, but in relation to this unit, it's not much of an issue. The whole resort on-whole is still woefully underlit at night. Very dark, very tough to navigate after the sun goes down. I highly recommend renting a golf cart to navigate Port A, as well as Palmilla's boardwalk to the beach. Palmilla is one of the only boardwalks in Port A that allows for golf carts. It's fantastic.

Beautiful condo. Much more spacious than I expected. Loved the decor. The deck was very nice with quality outdoor furniture. A lot of attention to detail, everything from the towels to spices in the kitchen. Unfortunately the weekend we were there, the weather was extremely cold with strong winds. My favorite part was the beds and bedding! They were amazing and I did not want to get out of the bed on a cold morning. Best night sleep ever! Although it was freezing, we walked to the boardwalk and beach. Beautiful spot to take pictures! The only negative I would say about the property is the water did not seem to get as hot as I would like when taking a shower. Other than that, would DEFINITELY stay again!

Great location...customer service needs some kinks worked out
My family recently stayed at this property. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay...the condo was clean and very nicely appointed, the resort property is brand new with a really nice pool facility, the restaurant on site (Black Marlin Bar & Grill) is amazingly good -- incredibly good food and great service, access to the beach is very close, and the beach itself is really really nice (although if they groomed it periodically to remove seaweed and debris that washed up, that would only make it so much better!). We loved the movie night at the pool...and the staff onsite were always very professional and nice. These are the very positive things about our stay.
However, there are some customer service kinks that need to be worked out at this property (and maybe these are because it is still a relatively new property with new rentals). But here were some issues we encountered: (1) The first full day of our stay, the golf course was closed for maintenance. We were not told that would be the case. Thankfully, we weren't planning to golf every day, so we were able to golf later in the week when the course opened. Still, it would be nice to know that amenities that have been advertised are availabe (or not, as the case may be). We were never told beforehand that the course would be closed. (2) The day before we were set to check out, we received an email from Turnkey, notifying us that we were being given late check-out (from 10 am to noon). This was great, as it gave our family a little more time to enjoy the beach before getting packed up and out of the room. But at 10:30 am on check out day, we had housekeeping show up and tell us they had a reservation coming in at 3 pm and we needed to be out immediately (family members were showering at the time, and we were nowhere near fully packed). We then received emails and phone calls and additional knocks on the door, telling us we needed to vacate and we could no longer have late check out. I called the main office, asked what was up and explained THEY had told us the day before we had late checkout. They gave a standard apology and said that after they told us that, they booked the property...so now they needed us out ASAP. We managed to get out by 11 am, but it was a very POOR way to end the vacation, having to run around like crazy because of their screw up. Unfortunately, having this happen right at the end of our stay certainly colored our view of the place...and not for the better.

Hi Heather, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience staying with us. We would like to sincerely apologize for these problems that came up and for your vacation ending on such a sour note. With regards to the golf course undergoing maintenance, we are not made aware of that; so unfortunately, we are unable to let our guests know when maintenance occurs last minute. Usually that only happens if weather has damaged the course on a previous day or something similar. Regarding the way that you were rushed out of our home on your last day, we completely agree that was not handled appropriately and are so sorry for that inconvenience. We do accept same-day reservations and that can impact check-out times, but if we had already prepared you for a check-out time of noon, then we should have honored that. Please be assured we are currently following up with the Housekeeping Team and our processes by which we handle situations like this. You were absolutely wonderful guests, and if there is anything else at all we can do to make your overall impression of us a better one, just reach out anytime to our 24/7 guest hotline and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team
This place was great! The condo was decorated so adorable and the lay for 2 couples was perfect, rooms on opposite sides. Everything you need in a kitchen and an open living/dining concept that flows well. A large balcony with a table and 4 chairs and a high top table with 2 chairs. The beach area is reserved which is amazing, they will put up an umbrella and chairs for you. They even serve food out there and have a/c bathrooms. Pool area is nice and big and they even have events, movies at the pool or another area where they do smores and not sure what else, more for kids and we had none. It's still a very new area so lots of construction going on but it wasn't too loud or in our way at all. Only downfall is we did not see any grills and we brought tons of food to grill! Next time we will just have to take one with us. We will definitely be back here!!

So glad we "Seas the Day"!
Took an impromptu trip and stumble upon this quiet rental while searching for properties in Port A. Great amenities - beautiful functional kitchen with great decor throughout. Couches were super comfy - and the space was much larger than we expected. Set up our twins in their pack n plays in the living room and had our 3 year old in the second bedroom. Staff was pleasant and even though it was off season, they offered to help us out by the pool with ordering lunch if needed. No umbrellas or chairs for beach in off season though, but we faired fine by driving the car down to the beach. Overall had a great time and will definitely be back!

Beautiful condo, but not finished!
When arriving to Palmilla Beach Resort, our group was not aware that the resort was still under major construction. It was confusing to find the condos that were in this building. There are not direct signs on the building with property numbers (for example, "Building 200-220"), so that was frustrating. Also, the elevator was not working. We had to lug bags, coolers, etc. up and down the stairs the whole weekend. The actual condo was beautiful. Everything was new and clean and prepared for our stay. There were trash bags, a cooler, laundry detergent, etc. which was helpful. However, no paper towels. My main complaint was the brightness in the entire house. There were no window treatments of any sort...no blinds, no curtains, nothing. It prevented us from having privacy at night and sleeping-in in the morning, Also, this listing should say it "sleeps 5" NOT 6! There are two king beds in each bedroom and one double size pull out mattress in the couch.

Beautiful inside but lots of construction and dirty balcony
The unit was difficult to locate- no signs or maps. We stopped at guest services and they just sent us in the direction of the building but again no maps. We arrived to find a working elevator, thankfully! We weren’t aware it was going to require stairs/elevator- poor online description. The inside of the unit was pristine and very beautiful. New window shades. It is mostly kid friendly unit meaning there weren’t many breakable or poorly placed decorations/Fruniture/cords; we have three kiddos, our youngest being a crawler, almost walking, and into everything so this was important. The balcony was very dirty and sticky so it was mostly unusable. It had a beautiful view but we didn’t get to enjoy it since it wasn’t clean. I did notify Turnkey and requested cleaning but no one ever came to clean it; we received a call the day after we checked out asking if we wanted someone to come clean the balcony. The master bed room had ample space as did the living/kitchen/dining room. There was a lot of construction going on all over the property for the entirety of our stay. That was a little inconvenient but the workers were very respectful. A golf cart rental is really necessary if you have lots to carry and/or kids. It’s a decent walk to the boardwalk and the boardwalk is very curvey, hilly, and long to get over the dunes. The golf cart rental is a bit expensive. Also the pathway is unclear, particularly with all the construction and unfinished roads. Again, a map and signs would be helpful. We rented the umbrella and two chairs which were nice to have, although there was an issue every day with our rental either not being set up at all or another family sitting in our spot. The staff were very friendly and responsive to requests. They have two boogie boards and some toys to let us borrow which was nice. I wish they had more family friendly activities during the week days, not just Fri/Sat. Turnkey communication was great at first and

We loved this condo, and will be back again and again! It was clean, spacious, and very thoughtfully decorated and stocked with everything we needed. Both beds were comfortable with quality linens. TurnKey was very responsive when there was an ant issue in the condo and took care of it immediately. Palmilla management is a completely separate group, and they definitely have some ironing out to do as far as guest services and amenities. However, the condo was absolutely perfect and we can’t wait to go back next year!

Overall stay was very nice. Convenient to PA and beach access... On site pool was tremendous. For people staying in four story condos, I feel that a four-wheel hotel like luggage cart would be helpful to get people checked in and out. Hanging out at Red's was cool and Black Marlin Restaurant was good. The housekeeping staff we met was very pleasant and accommodating as were the other personnel The maintenance and repair could use some attention, minor stuff, dirty air filter, I saw a housekeeping / maintenance guy and he brought us new ones to change out. Some light bulbs were burned out and the ice maker needed to empty / thaw so it would work. HVAC was good ...I would also add a fan to the porch... Yes we would return..

The community where this condo is...
The community where this condo is located is beautiful with many lavish properties. The condo itself is beautiful with high-end appliances and nice furniture. The beds are memory foam that sleep wonderfully if you're accustomed to this kind of mattress. The linens, rugs and towels are high quality. No issues during our stay; however, would recommend that the owner add labels to the coffee maker since most buttons are missing them and if you're unfamiliar with Mr. Coffee, it's hard to discern how to begin brewing the coffee. One of the sinks in the master bath drains very slowly, and needs some attention. It was wonderful to be able to cook in the oven and on the stove; however, when heating up, the oven makes a bumping noise, no biggie, just kinda weird. All the rooms have flat screen TVs which we didn't use at all so can't speak to the quality. It was nice to have some cards and games to play during our stay. The dishes and silverware are very nice and higher quality than most properties we've stayed in. And, it was fantastic to have different wine glass sizes to choose from since our group like whites and reds. The patio was wonderful with heavy-duty furniture. We enjoyed having wine every night on the patio while watching the sunset. The beach was beautiful and well kept. The pool was amazing. It was really cool to have a bar located within the pool area and cabanas you can rent during the day where they will prepare and bring you food and beverages. We didn't rent a golf cart but they are available for anyone who wants to pay for the convenience to go back and forth to the beach on the boardwalk. They have umbrellas and chairs for rent and a trailer parked where they sell beverages. Overall, our stay was fabulous and we highly recommend this property for your vacation.

End of Summer
First time renting at Palmilla. Loved the condo, very spacious and well equipped. The rugs and couch could use either a strong cleaning or replacing but otherwise it was a very clean, nicely decorated condo. It was quite a hike to the beach access with toddlers but considering all the other amenities, nothing that wasn’t able to be taken care of. Would definitely rent again. Loved our stay!
