As some body else already said in another review, it's difficult to rate this place based upon the normal standards for a hotel since this is a "suis generis" spot in the middle of the rain forest in one of the most remote towns, though very beautiful, of Puerto Rico.
The whole setting is what makes this place special.
It was built in 1858 as a coffee plantation house and during the last three decades it's being operated as a parador or bed and breakfast.
It's currently operated by the municipality. The staff in general is very kind. The service is nice; the food is what you would find at any puertorrican middle class home. Home style food. Generous portions. Don't expect food cooked by a chef; it's cooked by local women, that cook the same way they cook to their families. Nothing fancy at all but with very nice flavor.
The rooms are not in top condition aesthetically speaking but are very clean. They have cable TV.
I went with a group that took the whole place for us, and had a blast there.
Looking forward to go back.
