We visited Casa Cubuy after the hurricane when there was still no power. In driving from San Juan we saw some of the terrible destruction caused by the hurricane. The traffic lights did not work and town after town had no power. The road to...More
We stayed at Casa Cubuy in August 2017 -- just weeks before the hurricane and had an experience to last a lifetime. Our stay in the middle of the rain forest away from it all, with easy hikes to waterfalls, kind and knowledgeable hosts, terrific...More
Casa Cubuy was a wonderful experience! The room and property were super clean and the views were out of this world! The best part though is listening to the coquis (frogs) when the sun goes down. It's just incredible. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great...More
Wow! I just love this place!
We only spend two nights but I never felt so relaxed.
Breakfast was amazing! All made by the lovely hosts themself. You don't need to go hungry from the table that's for sure :)

I almost don't want to review these guys because it was so amazing and I want to keep it all to myself. But alas, this place and these people were so great, I want them to have all the success in the world and their...More

My wife and I liked the Casa Cubuy lodge. I don't think it had mayor structural damage, although railings and such were torn off. The frogs survived nicely. They were quite noisy. The birds were not so fortunate. Just before we left we saw a single, lone, little bird. The owners told us that the restaurant was very good before the storm, but of course we had no way of knowing. We went out for dinners and carried in junk food for breakfast and lunch. We would like to go again and see more of the forest.

I have absolutely no idea what modern parents consider "friendly" to their children. Other than not bringing my child to restaurants which are obviously not welcoming to a child if they charge large amounts of money for a meal and have adults paying for the quiet and ambiance, my experience was that it was my responsibility to care for my child and make sure my child did not disturb any other patrons of any establishment we visited, not the other way around. This is the attitude adopted by everyone I have ever seen in recent years (none of whom were from the US) successfully traveling with 6-12 month olds on up.
However, if you are asking if special actions have been taken at Casa Cabuy to prevent your child from falling down the steps, sticking her finger in the electrical outlets, etc, I would say the answer is no. Additionally, people come there for peace and quiet and to visit the rain forest. Hammocks abound over steep cliff views. I expect protracted screaming or tantrums would be most unwelcome by most other patrons. And there are quite a few staircases, the nearest restaurant is 1/2 mile walk (or drive) down a steep hill, the breakfasts are communal and consist mainly of delicious fruit and a main course with adults conversing about their nature related activities, planned and experienced. I did not see any highchairs, though they may have them. If you plan on hiking with your child on your back (or front), your child is a good traveler and mostly quiet when well attended, and you do not expect special treatment, I imagine anywhere would be a good choice. If you are looking for a Chuck E. Cheese, this is not the place.
