Seeking cook for private villa in Palmas del Mar

Our family has rented a villa in Palmas del Mar for next Christmas. We are looking for a cook/chef to cook meals for us for a week. Does anyone know a good, reasonably priced cook/chef?

Had no luck. The landlord came up with a local lady whose suggested menu consisted of meat plus lots and lots of starches. For our group of 10 people, she wanted $15/person for a simple breakfast, $20/person for her starchy dinner, plus the cost of groceries, $800 for her helper, $200 for shopping time and $100 for gas. So I have decided to make breakfast for the 10 of us, lunch will be grab what you can if you are at the villa and dinner will be a combination of take-outs and restaurants. Works out to be much cheaper this way.

Good luck with your search.

When JLo rented a Villa in Palmas del Mar she contracted a caterer, if she could do it so can you. Instead of asking for a cook, ask for a caterer. Many more will answer to that call. Maybe a chef student will do it for you. Academia Serrant is in another town but maybe they can tell you where you can contact someone. They have a school that among other things they teach chefs.

Inyou can also ask geor boscio 787-843-0123 or his wife elizabeth for advice on this matter. They are big caterers from Ponce but are very helpful in all matters. Just make sure you mention family time, reasonable prices.

We are staying in Palmas 12/27 - 1/4 and I had the same experience, over priced food per person. I am working a few leads from coworkers with family in the area. I will post back if I have any luck.
