This was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it is very, very basic. Location is awesome though-tucked out of the way, quiet, with the exception of the coqui frogs! It is an excellent place to relax and do some hiking. Hammock outside and great views of the lush mountains. Can even get to some of the coffee plantations (driving). The on-site restaurant is awesome-well prepared meals for a good price.
Basic is basic though-no tv, no a/c, no phone.
