We arrived late and were taken to our room. It was clean and confortable, but the curtains were too small for the windows giving us very little privacy which was important for us since we were on the ground floor and on a passage way. The owner's wife was very nice and gave me some clothespins to pinch the curtains... More

Away from all the tourist this place offers a beautiful setting in the middle of the rain forest. There are several hiking paths you can take walking distance from the property. The lodge is a little tired and needs some updating, but the views and location make up for it.

We chose Casa Cubuy because we were looking for a place that was nestled in the rainforest. We were okay with average accommodations in exchange for the lodge's location and its views. We loved the idea of coqui frogs singing us to sleep and the fact that most tourists do not go to the southern side of El Yunque. It's... More

The two stars are for location and breakfast. We were really disappointed in the condition of this "ecolodge" after reading so mny 4 and 5-star reviews here. The owners seem to have lost interest in basic maintenance of the property, and agree with some former posters here who have recommended hiring someone for a few days to update and clean.... More

My partner and I travel the world, and we're always looking for natural, un-touristy and off-the-beaten-path QUIET kinds of places. Casa Cubuy in the El Yunque National Park of Puerto Rico filled the bill perfectly! While it was located on a paved road, and easily accessible from the main highway in eastern Puerto Rico, the road ended a mile or... More

It's quiet, peaceful and on the edge of a rainforest. A delicious communal breakfast is included, $8 for a yummy package lunch if you request one, the restaurant (which is ran by the same owners) down the road has dinner for reasonable prices including $1.50 medalla's. Yes, there are bugs but you are in a rainforest! I was able to... More

Casa Cubuy was fantastic! We had a room on the upper level with the bed facing the rainforest. It was dark and raining when we arrived, but no worries, we were greeted by the cacophony of coqui and the proprietor, Matthew, gave us a flashlight to hike down to the Rio Cubuy to see the freshwater shrimp. We actually saw... More

We had a wonderful time in the rainforest. When we checked in we were greeted by Matthew, who was very friendly. We had not eaten lunch and he offered to make us sandwiches, even though the restaurant was not yet open. We got into our room, and we were very happy. The rooms are very basic - no t.v., no...

I really enjoyed my stay in Casa Cubuy. As I wanted to stay in the less explored Southern part of El Yunque, there were not a lot of options. I actually wanted to stay at the hostel that was supposed to be part of Casa Cubuy, but the hostel did not exist anymore. However, when I saw the rooms of... More

The views from this place are phenomenal. No need to go anywhere except out the front door. Waterfalls, forest , beauty all around. Amazing communal breakfast with freshest fruit and goodies. It was so nice to incorporate this into the travel experience. Met great people from all over the world. Stayed up late and chatted on terrace. Just a great... More
