We loved our stay at Casa Cubuy. Located on the southern side of El Yunque, it is quieter and feels like more of a retreat than the more populated north side of the forest. Hiking to the waterfalls and swimming pools, there was a sense...More
Straightforward ecolodge / B&B with character. We stayed 4 nights and used the place as a jumping off point to cover the east side of the island. View is wonderful with a nice private hike to a waterfall below. Breakfast and common area are charming....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.
