Made reservations because we wanted to check out the Cordillera Central. Lodging is limited in this part of Puerto Rico and this place looked like an interesting spot to get away from things. By pure luck I had taken a look at my confirmation the morning I left Ponce and it advised me to download the directions from the Casa...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 February 2017

This eco lodge was everything I imagined an eco lodge would be- relaxed, comfortable, and not distracting from the natural surrounding beauty. Way out in the mountains, this place was a little hard to get to after rainstorms washed away half the mountain (it seemed like) but once there it was a lovely time. It was overcast during my stay,...

The are few dining options in rural Utuado but this is one of them. We did our best to hurry here well before closing so we could enjoy a local meal in paradise. We both had fish of the day which tasted bland and boiled as well as a mountain of bland and over boiled veggies that were softer than...

My first visit to Casa Grande was last week and I am already preparing my return trip. The positive reviews were on target. We were warmly greeted at the front desk and the short walk to our room was rewarded by lush landscaping and mountain views. Our room was clean and the bed was was heaven. The patio with chairs...

Went there reluctantly for my wife's birthday, since they do not have TV, internet, or AC. Our afternoon started off great, with a hike through a small mountain followed by two Malbecs and a sangria for my wife. Albeit the bar was closed, the lady in the front desk was great, since she served our drinks. Dinner was healthy, with...

I was here for breakfast, dinner, and a morning yoga class! The food was healthy and of high quality! The staff was very kind and welcoming! Even the owner, Steve, spent time talking with me about the morning yoga class before I signed up for it! I took a class the next morning with Veeta and one other guest which...

This place is amazing. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. The charm of this place for me is that it's in the mountains, far away from everything. If you are looking for amenities, this is not it. If you want a place to unwind and enjoy the tranquility of nature, you have found your niche. The rooms are basic, 2...

If you want to get away, be close to nature, relax and meditate this is your place! What a beautiful experience is this hotel. It also has a really nice restaurant. There is no air conditioning but you don't need it. We slept to the sound of a river near by. The place is very quiet and in the middle...

We stayed here for one night in March expecting a relaxing and comfortable mountain retreat after a few nights at an apartment in Old San Juan. We got a terrific view of the mountains but unfortunately that's about it. While we were expecting no air conditioning/TV/internet/etc., we were not expecting motel-quality beds with springs poking through, rough sheets and towels,...

As I've devoted the last 21 years to offering quality service and customer satisfaction at Casa Grande I was deeply troubled by this guest's experience. I was really surprised about the bed complaint as our mattresses are quite new, of high quality and the same make and style placed in Marriott hotel rooms on the island. We do not iron...

I lead a yoga retreat. We each had a little bungalow room. It felt like a treehouse. A hammock on the porch, no TV, no air conditioning, just the birds, the breeze and the beautiful Mountains.This place is low key and just simply beautiful with the plants, trees, flowers and shrubs.

“I assume all of the rooms are similar. You may want to see if one is accessible with fewer stairs to reach it. The stairs are steep.”
