The Eco Lodge is located at the dead end road on the south side of El Yunque. If you wish to enter the main park entrance and enjoy the man made paths, observation towers, etc., you have to drive about 1 hour to the Northern side from here. Nevertheless, the Eco-Lodge is at a nice spot and gives you ample opportunity to enjoy the vegetation without the crowds of the main park area.
The lodge itself has seen better days, and lacks a bit of dedicated management. The room features are very basic, for example not even a place to hang a shirt or so, and the communal area could be better cleaned, too. The place would need more care and maintenance, for example have power outlets covered, old holes from former fixtures closed, light bulbs replaced. Nothing serious, some just an aesthetic subject, an indication of what guests have to accept.
Still, there are nice things to say, too. The breakfast is great, there is space to sit and meet other guests, there is a nice dinner at some nights (extra charge at fair rate). If they don't do the dinner, which may happen without any info before, then you got to drive a long way, about 40 min., to the next acceptable restaurants. There is nothing around in the vicinity of this place.
I would recommend the place, if you can accept the very basic features of the place, and don't care about the sometimes disorganized management. The great nature environment might well compensate the properties' shortcomings.
