“An Amazing Rainforest Getaway”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

There are thousands of places to choose from when visiting Puerto Rico, and frankly, most of them lack the character, charm, and scenic natural beauty of The Ceiba Country Inn. This quaint B&B is but a few miles off the main highway on the east end of Puerto Rico, but it's high up in the foothills of the El Yunque rainforest - one of only a handful of such accommodations in the rainforest. Our room had a Caribbean view with the island of Culebra visible in the distance. At night, the Inn is immersed in a tropical symphony of night sounds, starring the Coqui tree frog. It was a unforgettable experience to feel the cool night breezes and listen to the wonderful sounds of nature! The friendly dogs there greeted us with excitement and made us miss our dog at home just a little bit less. We celebrated the evening of our anniversary there, and the owner, Michael, was kind enough to indulge us with a home-cooked meal and a bottle of wine that I set up with him in advance. The cooking was local Puerto Rican cuisine - the best we had the entire trip - and many of the ingredients came from right there on the property! Likewise, the breakfasts were fantastic with a selection of exotic juices, excellent local Puerto Rican coffee, fresh baked breads, and a wide variety of fresh fruits and eggs from on site. I actually stumbled upon this place because our beach resort wasn't available the entire duration of our trip, but if I had to do it over again, I would have stayed here the entire time! If you're looking for a unique experience on Puerto Rico and love nature (even the brief, heavy rain showers were charming), look no further!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 & 2 have the ocean views and are worth the extra $, but really, the rainforest views are...

Mike was good enough to show us a room. The view was beautiful, the room looked awesome, and the atmosphere was very welcoming. We booked a room, but us to unforeseen circumstances, we had to cancel. We'd like to thank Mike for his friendliness and we will be back in the future to stay.

The inn is situated on top of a hill outside Ceiba. If your planning a trip to El Yunque its a 30 minute drive. Fajardo is 15 minutes away.
Our room was in a great location facing the jungle. The room was cozy and clean and offered a refrigerator. At night we relaxed in a hammock and listened to the coqui. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The inn has a great upper deck that affords spectacular views of Fajardo and the Carribean. The continental breakfast included local fresh fruits, eggs, juices (passion fruit, guava, orange) and breads.

We chatted with the guests. Many have returned to the inn 8 or 9 times.

I would have given the inn 5 stars , but they are in the process of building a pool for guests and there was construction noise to deal with during the day.

The inn is charming and the views amazing. Lots of gentle animals ( dogs and cats) to pet if you wish. Trails abound and so do comfortable chairs. The breakfast was delicious with home grown fruits and juices, home made breads, and then the usual cereals, etc.

The owners are friendly and eager to enhance guests visit to the Inn and the area. We asked about the beaches and were given a hand drawn map that took us right to the beach area. The map was provided without being requested.

Rooms are attractive and clean. This is not a fancy place, but quite charming with lots of special touches. Our experience was a delightful one.

I must mention the other guests, they were interesting to visit with - quite a variety of backgrounds and interest. At the same time, we found guests can have the degree of privacy desired.

Coming soon, we learned today, is a large swimming pool. It should be ready before summer.

Room Tip: Plan to stay a few days to really appreciate the area.

You need a detailed map to get there but it' s really worthy.
15 min from the motorway, you find yourself in the countryside, on a hill with a nice view.
The accomodation is simple, clean, welcoming, the owners have some kind pets.
The ownly drawback is that you will have to take the car for having dinner at night...
Otherwise, it was a very nice experience in Ceiba.

Guided only by online reviews, we lucked out by choosing this property for our first-ever trip to Ceiba. Michael and Pedro and their staff are the perfect hosts and truly understand what hospitality is all about. The property is perched on a hillside a few kms from central Ceiba, which is a good thing is you're looking for some peace and quiet. Exiting the autopista, you drive on increasingly twisty, narrow roads through residential neighborhoods until turning into the property's steep driveway. Yeah, it's a scary drive the first time--but you get used to it. Coquis are pentiful here; I enjoyed their chirping which lulled me to sleep each night. I was more concerned with nearby crowing roosters but it was only a minor annoyance. Good-sized room, comfortable bed, and adequate bathroom. Good water pressure and hot water. Didn't have time to check out the free WiFi; comfortable mountain breezes meant we never had to crank up the A/C. IMPECCABLY CLEAN. In room mini-fridge, writing desk w chair, canvas bag loaded with beach towles and folding luggage rack are welcome bonuses! Plenty of patio spaces with chairs, lounges and hammocks. Continental breakfast has a good variety of choices. Great launching point for hiking in El Yunque National Rain Forest and drives along east coast. Don't miss getting a bite to eat from one of the food shacks (Kioskos) along the beach in Luquillo. Trying new foods is part of the fun and you'll be pleasantly surprised by how delicious it is!
The resident dogs are friendly enough to melt your heart Actually, they are almost too friendly. If you lay out in one of the lounge chairs on the outside deck the dogs will immediately climb on top of you and slobber all over your face. Clearly the dogs want you to know that the lounge chairs are THEIR territory. It's cute/slightly annoying.

Very cozy, friendly staff. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was big with sufficient lighting (which I have found not so great in other places). Takes a while to get hot water. Great, nutritious breakfast. Really friendly and playful dogs.
Great place to relax, it's off the beaten path and is quiet. You can listen to the Colqui put you to sleep at night.
Highly recommend, we will stay here again sometime.

Room Tip: Ask for room 5 thru 8 for privacy
