“Nice Place to Stay in Ceiba - Hope to Stay Here Again”

First off - I would give the Hidden Paradise Rental a 3.5 stars if available. I rounded up because I really liked it, but there are some minor issues which should be addressed. We (4 adults, 1 infant) stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. Read on for more details.

The booking process was extremely straightforward. I had a response from the owner the same day and had a contract within a few hours of confirming my dates. The contract was well written and had all of the necessary house rules, directions to the house and amenities listed. I rate the booking process as 5 stars.

The arrival from the airport in San Juan was really simple. The directions given by the owner were extremely easy to understand and accurate. I rate the arrival as 5 stars.

The house from the exterior is really nice. The position on the hill, overlooking the mountains and the sea is really wonderful. The landscaping is really nicely done, and there is ample parking for several cars.

We stayed in the downstairs 2 bedroom unit with 4 adults and 1 infant. The owner had a pack-and-play available for our baby which was really helpful. The baby stayed in the small office room off the 2nd bedroom. There was enough closet/storage space for our 1 week stay, although there was a lot of personal property also being stored in the dresser (clothing, etc.) and in the closet (extra suitcases) - this should be removed or locked in an owner's closet. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. There was a door leading out to the patio from the bedroom which was nice. The bathroom was suitable, although there is a need for some minor repairs (side of bathroom vanity was falling apart, the shower curtain rod would not stay on the wall, and the toilet kept running and had to be monitored/fixed so as to not waste water). Overall I give the bedroom/bathroom 3 stars.

The living room and dining area were adequate for our stay although we did not sit inside often. There ceiling fans are nice for keeping the room cool. The furniture is clean and comfortable. I give the living room and dining room 4 stars.

The kitchen is adequately sized and reasonably clean. There is a need for some minor repairs to the cabinetry. There were enough utensils and kitchen items for meal preparation, although many of these are in need of replacement. Many of the dishes were not clean upon arrival. The small appliances worked well (microwave, coffee maker). Overall I think the owner needs to go through the entire kitchen and replace many of the utensils, knives, etc. The refrigerator was of a good size and worked fine. I give the kitchen facility 3 stars.

Overall, the interior could really use a thorough cleaning (think top of refrigerator, shelves, décor)

The outside area is really great, save a few things. The patio seating and pool seating is clean and comfortable. The lawn is beautiful and there are a lot of flowers in the landscaping that make the place look great. The pool however really needs more attention. When we first arrived there was some algae along the bottom edge of the pool. On the next day the owner came to the house to do some pool work and add chemicals. Over the next couple of days, there was no other cleaning activity, and the pool water became progressively greener, with a lot of debris. There was a real need for more attention to the pool. I recall the owner stating the circuit board for the pool was in need of repair, although the problem could have been solved with some bleach and a leaf net (I am an expert pool technician). I give the general exterior and grounds 4 stars, and the pool, although really nice, 2 stars for general cleanliness and water quality.

I believe overall this was a very nice place to stay in Ceiba. It was close enough to Fajardo to go for dinner and beaches (about 15 - 20 minutes). The owner should really give the rental unit a once-over, replace some of the older equipment, and do a thorough cleaning and remove and lock away all of their person items. Further, the pool, which should be pristine at all times, needs more attention.

I really enjoyed the place and would likely stay there again or recommend to a friend. I think for the location, amenities and quality the price was fair. I hope the owner takes any criticisms in my review as constructive.

“AMAZING VIEWS!”
Reviewed 19 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We recently stayed in "Hidden Paradise" in the first floor unit. What a perfectly chosen name for the home, as it is a true "Hidden Paradise" in Ceiba, Puerto Rico. Once driving up the mountain road and arriving (with perfect directions given by the owner) you are simply awestruck at the view of the surrounding islands and ocean from the front yard of the home. Words could never describe the million dollar view found at Hidden Paradise. Each evening, we had to tear ourselves away to go to bed.
On the property there is a beautiful pool/jacuzzi with color changing lights that children and adults of all ages will love, and were beautifully arranged and installed to make the most of the amazing views! Imagine relaxing after a wonderful day hiking in the El Yuenke Rain Forrest with a million dollar view from the pool and jacuzzi.

Inside the home on the first floor unit in the two bedroom unit you will find a kitchen, dining area, and living room with a flat screen TV, a laundry room, two beautifully appointed bedrooms, and a den area with a futon sofa if needed.
The owner has thought of everything, with ample cooking utensils, pots, bowls, supplies, silverware, etc. This is a good thing, because once you get there, you may never want to leave! The home is immaculate, beautifully decorated and well-maintained.
My husband and I took our three children. (two twenty somethings and a teenager.) All were in awe and could not stop posting pictures to share with their friends back at home. They were so in love with the home, we had to promise at least two days they could just stay "home" instead of the non-stop activities we planned on the island. My step-son even said, "You really outdid yourself with this one!" They never wanted to leave.
The location is perfect for exploring the rain forest, catching the ferry to neighboring islands, day trips to Loquillo Beach, Old San Juan. etc. It is approximately an hour to the airport, depending on the traffic. There are many local stores on the way to the home to stop for groceries or needed supplies, including Ralph's & Amigo's Supermarkets, WalMart, Walgreens, CVS, etc. There are wonderful local restaurants, including Mi Terraza in Ceiba and several in nearby Fajardo, which is a very short drive.

Staying at Hidden Paradise truly made this the vacation of a lifetime that my family and I will never forget. Many thanks to Ms. Monica and her husband for sharing their amazing home with others so they can share the beauty of the island for a vacation that will never be forgotten by our family!
