This was our first visit to Port A. and we were not disappointed. The villa is well appointed, modern and, the complex in close proximity to the beach. We also loved that the place is pet-friendly. Definitely at the top or our list for accommodation on our next visit.
We booked a last minute trip to Port A late Friday afternoon. My husband got home from work and we left around 7. We arrived around 10:30pm and the owners had set out key code on our door for us and that was so helpful. We had no problems getting in.
After we got into our room it was gorgeous and still smelled brand new. Looks exactly like the beautiful pictures posted. We only stayed through the
weekend and would've liked to have stayed longer! Being our first trip ever to Port A we have nothing to compare it to. The surrounding area was really nice. Not within walking distance to the main restaurants or shops but we had no issue finding parking. Next time we'd like to rent one of the golf carts.
The only negative things I'd have to say about the villa was that our water dispenser on the fridge (looked brand new and beautiful) was SO slow it took about 5 minutes to fill a big glass of water. Not a deal breaker but kind of annoying when you come in super thirsty.
The pool area was super clean and beautiful. The only problem we had was that both tables in the pool had missing/loose tiles. My two girls didn't mind and ended up playing with them like they were a puzzle. The other table though had broken tiles which could be sharp for little kiddos. Again not a deal breaker and we really enjoyed the pool.
I do recommend that the owners maybe put a towel rack or some kind of hooks in the bathroom area for wet towels.
Overall we loved Shadow Palm and would LOVE to stay there again! Already missing it!
