It was very cleaned and relaxing. We had and amazing night staying at the cabin. We definately hope to stay here again soon. Definately recommend this place 100%. It has everything you need to relax and have fun with your friends and family. If you are looking to disconnect from the technology and just relax, spend time and bond with...

I love to hike and being able to hike up the mountain and see the Caribbean Sea was the highlight of my trip! Not to mention fresh fruit to be picked like oranges and bananas while we hiked gave us the extra energy with such a tranquil feeling!

My husband and I visited in July 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The 1 br cabin was adequate with a kitchen, bath, and bedroom. Nothing fancy but that was fine with us. The land is beautiful with an abundance of tropical vegetation. The mangoes and bananas were ripe and abundant. This is a wonderful get-away from the big...

Usually I go in November but I heard it was mango season in June. Mangos were delicious, ripe and very sweet. I really wished I could of filled luggage with them. Also ate a fresh guanabana which I have never seen tasted before. Our hostess was friendly and very helpful. She would check up on us to see if we...

Had a great time. Spent a week in one of the newly constructed cabin. It was great. I travel with my private chef (mom) and she had everything she needed on site for whipping up amazing meals with platanos, breadfruit, bannanas, lemongrass and all sorts of things growin right there within our reach. Tons of great beaches are nearby. As...

If you want to rough it in the country, one step up from camping, then this place might be for you. Armando is very friendly, and will describe the fruit trees, and you can learn about life in the country. However, the website’s description statement of being able of pick fruit for your breakfast, was not quite accurate, since none...

Thank you for being with us. You rented the most economical of our cabins which cost you only $60. including taxes for 3 beds and a kitchen. You had rented 2 nights and then you canceled one. We have upscale cabins with AC and Direct TV. You arrived at our place at 5pm. If you wanted a tour of the...

I've been to Cabanas several times and Im very happy to say I will be going there again in June I was very happy to eat fresh oranges every day ( which I sometimes picked by myself) as well as plantains. The fresh crisp air of the mountains is a treat -especially for us "city folks"-not to mention the breath...

I just booked my flight to Ponce for June and I will be staying at El Rucio. I absolutely love this place. It's not fancy- it's like summer camp for grown ups! I'm Dominican so the fact that a VARIETY of platanos are grown on site and I can cook and eat as many as I want, makes this a...

I am sad to say that our experience at the Cabanas El Rucio was just like baltofed's a few days earlier. The place looked like a derelict trailer park. We arrived earlier in the afternoon than we had intended. There was no-one available although loud music was coming from one of the cabanas. We phoned the caretaker but there was...

This client arrived at our place 5 hours before the check in time that we had agreed upon. We were finishing cleaning up their cabin because another client had checked out 30 minutes before. That client was there for 5 days and he never complained of any dirtiness or animal dropping. The attendant had gone to her house which is...

A shower without a showerhead. Property marred by eyesores like a tipped-over fridge filled with dirt and weeds. A mattress covered in cheap plastic, so that it made crunching noises anytime I moved. A caretaker who was supposed to introduce herself to me the morning after I arrived, but didn't (even though I waited for her until 10am.) She didn't...

We did all we could for this client. We upgraded her from a $50 per night room to a $70 per night villa withour charging her any extra money. We gave her the same blankets that we give every customer. We didn't want to enter her room because she was by herself and she wasn't amicable. Common sense told us...
