Casa Grande offers some of the most stunning mountain scenery in Puerto Rico. Breakfast and dinner served on the veranda provide stunning views to start and end your day. Other positives the pool is great and the entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food is very good and the best you will find in the area by far. Several negatives include its remote location and lack of amenities including tv and air conditioning. Also the internet login is quite frankly a joke and on several occasions made me consider throwing my phone off a wall or down into the river below. It's 2012 people need internet on their phones especially in an area with terrible reception. Another negative was the owner seemed to be lurking around and awkwardly interrupted my dinner with some questions. Also the yoga class is very weak. Anyone who has seriously practiced yoga will be disappointed with the slow and reflective class that leaves you wanting more of a work out and less imaginary chalk board writing.
