“Paradise!! With Best Hospitality On Earth!!!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Carlos the property owner is the most patient and gracious person. My husband and I started this journey in 11/2013 to find a place to renew our 25th wedding anniversary and to celebrate my family's birthdays. we did a lot of research and came across Caracolche Estate. If we had any questions Carlos answered them all. He made sure that everything was taken care of from the shuttle transportation to our complimentary welcome dinner. The estate is exactly as it is pictured on the website. The staff was very friendly and courteous, Carlos accommodated all of our wishes!! There was a total of 12 family and friends that stayed in the villa and we enjoyed every inch of the house, from the lagoon pool to the open deck over looking the ocean in which we had multiple Opportunities to view breath taking sun rises and sets. Carlos even preformed our vow renewal ceremony. Before we left my family and I have already decided that this will be next years vacation destination .
Carlos we have voted you into the family!!!

“Wonderful stay with a large group in tropical paradise!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Despite our very late arrival, Carlos, the owner, personally welcomed us and had dinner ready as we requested. We were a group of 14, including two 5 year olds, 3 teens, their parents, and the grandparents, both in their early to mid 70's. We stayed for 2 weeks in celebration of my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. We had a party at the villa for my parent's 50th and Carlos and the staff did a wonderful job of catering the event and helping to organize all the details, from cake, to flowers, to a roasted pig! We were very comfortable on the property and had plenty of room to spread out. The space allowed for people to gather in various locations depending on what you felt like doing. It was amazing how quiet it was in
the bedrooms considering the large amount of people that were staying on the property.
We loved the lagoon pool and the tropical surroundings. The landscaping, tree frogs and iguanas made it feel especially exotic. There were a number of casual good eateries nearby within walking distance. We enjoyed trying out various beaches which all had something different to offer, from surfing to snorkeling, to just hanging out and swimming.
All in all, we had a terrific time in Rincon, especially because we stayed in Caracol Che!

“Hidden Paradise”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We traveled with our family for our 50th Wedding Anniversary, and it was amazing! Rincon, is a beautiful natural setting and the Villa is perfect for family. We were a group of 14 including 2 small boys. Ages ranged from 5 to 75. Everyday we were all able to gather without feeling crowded since the design is so spacious and thoughtful using breezeways, and verandas and private deck areas with such charm. Some read in the hammocks, while others swam and played in the delightful river pool with a waterfall. We enjoyed birdsong in the mornings and the chirp of hidden frogs in the evenings. The open kitchen is well appointed with plenty of cookware, dishes, utensils. There are 2 BBQ areas, and a pool bar area.
The owner, Carlos made sure we were happy and he was so gracious with the torches lit and music playing and a big smile while serving our welcome dinner even though the arrival was 3 hours later than planned! He is always available with restaurant suggestions and tips for the best beaches. We had a very memorable family gathering, and we loved the casual and friendly atmosphere. We will miss those island breezes and beautiful sunsets.

“Epic trip to Puerto Rico @ Caracol Che”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We were three families (six adults and six kids total) and enjoyed a fantastic week of activities, relaxation, great food, "exclusive" facilities, and tranquile, island vibe of Caracol Che Villa. The experience begins and ends with Carlos, Caracol Che's owner/ manager, who is just a welcoming, warm, and service-oriented guy. He has created a great destination villa, and we enjoyed everything it had to offer - a beautiful salt-water pool and sunbathing area, fantastic house layout and facilities, home-catered dinners (highly recommended), beautiful grounds, large jacuzzi, our yoga/ exercise deck, roof deck, outdoor bar (and kitchen - brand new!), eco-lodge, outdoor sitting areas (great for hanging out in evenings after dinner) hammocks, pool table, WiFi and sound system.

We recommend many of the services Carlos offers/ can arrange: group shuttle from airport to Caracol Che; rental cars (dropped off/ picked up at Caracol Che); pre-arrival groceries/ liquor/ beer/ wine - a great convenience; and the many relationships/ recommendations that Carlos can make with the "best of" Rincon area activities - catamaran sailing/ snorkeling - excellent; surfing lessons for the family - a must-do; zipline/ eco-tours - while a bit of a drive, beautiful area and well worth the effort; restaurants/ bars - plenty of options, but within walking distance and via short car ride into Rincon; beaches - all around; and other points of interest.

This property and owner ultimately delivers an exclusive, high-end experience and does so at a great value - in a completely relaxed atmosphere and with an unpretentious attitude that was exactly what we were looking for!

Carlos, see you soon...e gracias por todo!

“Just go!”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Stop reading and book Caracol Che before someone else does! After the two hour drive from SJ, we arrived to find Carlos offering drinks and immediate relaxation. His wonderful sense of humor was immediately apparent and we knew right away we'd get along just fine with our host. We were two familes of 4 adults and 6 children, ages 6-13. The villa is more beautiful than we expected; Carlos has perfected an authentic property that is spacious, clean, and with more places to sit and relax than you can imagine. The pool is amazing, as are the vistas. Eveyone enjoyed being able to hop in the pool at a moment's notice. The poolside suite with the king bed is comfortable while retaining an authentic tropical feeling. Paradise. Carlos helps you arrange all trips, groceries and special requests - even printing and faxing at a moment's notice. We snorkeled at Steps Beach and visited the waterfalls at San Sebastian. All great half day trips. Carlos values your privacy while making it known he is available for you at all times. His staff is wonderful - great cooks and daily maintenance of the rooms and property. Rincon is a very laid back, eclectic town just a 5-7 minute walk from the villa. We walked to the beach several times where the kids boogie boarded and played. The surf was too rough to swim on just two days. Great local food in town at various casual restaurants. Carlos is a warm host, dedicated to making your stay as relaxing or as active as you want. If you are looking for the features and crowds of a big box resort, then go somewhere else. But if you are looking for authenticity, relaxation, personal service, and the feeling of staying at an old friend's home, go to Caracol Che!
