The view form our hilltop perch was beautiful, as well as the symphony of coquis and other nighttime critters. We were a group of four and really appreciated having a place with 2 bedrooms & 2 baths. We enjoyed the roasted chicken form the stand right across the street (which was only open for lunch the day we got there - we got the last chicken!) The Lehconeras were plentiful in the area. Truly a taste of the REAL Puerto Rico. Our visit was after a week-long cruise and we stayed for 3 nights. Unfortunately one of our party caught a bad cold the last day of the cruise, so was in sore straights for our post-cruise stay. It was nice to have a base where we could relax, and he could recoup. However, if we had stayed longer we would have bought some serious cleaning supplies and done some deep cleaning. The floor was in poor condition (chipped tiles) and had a thin layer of ...dirt. And in true Puerto Rican fashion, there was no hot water for the washing machine. There was also no hot water in the kitchen to wash dishes (not sure if that's typical). We ended up buying disposable plates, etc., to eat off of and did no cooking. The pots & pans were kept under the sink (next to the bug spray). Just didn't feel comfortable using them. There was hot water for showers (yea!). I must admit, we didn't complain about anything to the owner or the housekeeper because we just weren't there that long. We spent most of the day exploring the island and just basically played card games, snacked and slept there. The linens seemed clean, and the baths were clean.
When you're on a strict budget (like we were), and need a central place to explore Puerto Rico, this might be the place for you. But, it's NOT the Ritz. You definately need to rent a car to stay here.
