Casa Cubuy Ecolodge Review

El Yunque's southern edge is the setting for this eco-friendly hotel where the rooms are simple—no phones or TVs—but comfortable, with tile floors, rattan furniture, and windows that show off one of the island's best views. If you're up for a hike, set off on your own for a short one or hire a local guide for a daylong adventure that takes you through thick rain forest to hidden waterfalls. If you'd rather relax, hammocks await you on the tiled veranda. You must climb many stairs to reach the upper rooms; if this is a problem, request one on the lower level. The proprietor, who believes that healthful eating translates into healthful living, serves tasty and wholesome breakfasts. Light picnic lunches can also be ordered in the morning to take with you on hikes, and dinner is available for groups of four or more at the property's restaurant, a ten-minute walk down the road.

    GORGEOUS

    Fresh mountain air is the first thing you notice when you get out of your car! Second thing is the breathtaking views and peace there! The owners were very nice, the hotel was clean and service was good. We had room #5 and it has a balcony with the best view..The food was excellent, and it is a different experience as you all dine together,( all gusets) Fun getting to know people from all over the world who come for the same reasons,,,mother nature at her finest!

    Stay Away at all costs!

    We basically got ripped off and were charged full price for a half completed room in a construction site, were then promised a 50% refund then the owner retracted his offer. What respectable business owner would not refund 50% to appease a wronged customer? This experience was insane. It truly ruined our trip to El Yunque. Go to the northern rainforest instead, where there are plentiful swimming holes, trails, lookouts, and a visitors center.
