My husband and I just got back from Puerto Rico (9/21/2014 - 9/25/2014) and we spent all 4 nights at El Escondido Guest House. The view is awesome, the guys who run the house are greatly helpful with giving directions and suggestions of things to do. We felt like we were staying at our friend's really amazing house! They provide... More

We loved our stay and would definitely recommend! Nike was wonderful, helpful and informative. It was beautiful and very clean. You can tell the owners love and care for their property. We will return.

Loved it! This guest house has wonderful views of the towns below, the city of San Juan and the ocean in the distance; and it is surrounded by a lush botanical garden that of course, houses the national symbol and animal: coquí /kō-'kē/ frog. The sounds of these frogs along with the other forest animals did indeed lull me to... More

Thank you for your generous (and thorough) review! We enjoyed having you and your family here and we like the feel of opening our home to relatives. So glad you had a special time and were able to be reminded of the past with things you found in the gardens. Sorry about the mosquitos..they seem to only go after me... More

I've been to a lot of places with a lot of different types of lodging (hostel, dorm, room in a house, airbnb, hotel, resort etc) and I'm not kidding this place tops my list. It is off the beaten path, in the true heart of non-touristy Puerto Rico, but centrally located and not far from anywhere, including San Juan. And... More

I can not begin to express how amazing Nike and Joaquin are as hoteliers... friendly, personable and go above and beyond any guest's need. Beautiful view from the property, gorgeous pool and the grounds they are manicuring and creating as a pure Puerto Rican paradise. My husband had some health issues during our stay and Joaquin and Nike were so... More

Upon entering El Escondido, we felt like we were driving into a lush tropical paradise. The view was even better as we walked onto the actual property. There are beautiful trees, flowers, and plants all over the property. Nike was the person we saw most of our visit and he was a very warm and helpful host. You can tell... More

Rita, We are just as impressed by the views here as you! Thank you for the awesome review. Joaquin and I knew that Nike would take excellent care of you in our absence. I totally understand about the Coqui Frogs....they can be loud and take some getting used to. But when you do, what a way to fall asleep! But... More

If you are looking for a different experience this is the right place. The view is gorgeous from this hotel. You will be among nature. Breakfast is fresh fruit from the garden. Although I missed not eating bread but this was a new experience. The rooms are clean, with a small TV and DVD. The owner allows a movie rental... More

If you like charming and remote places, the Escondido Guest House is for you. Imagine a luxuriant garden, a blue swimming-pool over the landscape of San Juan and surroundings... One of the great qualities of the Escondido is the cheerful attitude of the owners: they make you feel at home. A visit of the private botanical garden is possible and... More

My husband and I stayed from July 29-July 31. Beautiful property, wonderful hosts. Would certainly stay again and highly recommend to friends who want to visit Puerto Rico but be a bit in the country. Thank you Joaquin and Nike for a wonderful visit!

Our hosts felt like family and I felt like I was home! I hope this place stays affordable and accessible to all! Sitting drinking our morning coffee, chatting for hours with Joaquin before exploring the park. Late night swim in the pool with an amazing view and exploring the gardens. This place is unique and worth the visit!

Jess, We're happy you enjoyed your stay at the guest house and took advantage of all we have to offer. I'm especially happy to hear of your late night swims! I always tell people the pool never closes but wonder if anyone actually uses it at night. It was a pleasure to meet you both. Thanks for the awesome review... More
