The question in my mind is not whether the property is spectacular (it is), the rainbow room is excellent (it is), the nearby waterfalls and swim holes are amazing (they are), etc. but whether it is worth $250/night (rainbow room). shirley is one of the best b&b hostesses we have ever had - she immediately puts guests at ease but is not the least bit intrusive or controlling. the dogs are fun and sweet, the frogs are loud at night, and breakfasts were great. nearby noelia's (two miles away) has decent food, a fun atmosphere. noelia is truly incredible; one of a cast of characters on the south side of el yunque that we felt we were starting to know after a 3 day visit. As others have said, be aware that you are pretty isolated and can not get to the north side easily (without a machete) where most of the hiking trails are located. if you want to hike, ask shirley to call robin and hire him as guide; he knows all the best spots and is fascinating to talk to as well.
