We stayed for 2 nights in March with our two 11 year old daughters. The grounds are beautiful and the atmosphere is very relaxing. It's obvious there has been a lot of effort over the years to make this place as beautiful as it is. The different types of trees and flowers were quite impressive. Our girls enjoyed the pool...

We're glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the review. We have no small fridges in the rooms to discourage guests from bringing food onto the property. Food tends to attract unwanted visitors. More

A place of paradise, a beautiful sanctuary to rejuvenate and connect to. Mother Earth. The service, the food made on site, the atmosphere in the beautiful mountains add an amazing tranquility to the experience . Hiking through the trails overlooking the views is just bliss. We would highly recommend luxuriating in this beautiful place!

Beautiful, away from the crowds and relaxing. No television, lovely pool, good food, friendly staff and beautiful hiking right from the retreat. They only serve breakfast and dinner so it's a good idea to bring a small ice chest for snacks. We brought our own bottle of wine but they charged a corkage fee so bring your own opener. The... More

Thank you for your review. It always feels rewarding to receive a 5 rating in all six categories. The corkage fee is the customary restuarant charge imposed when a guest chooses to bring their own bottle of wine to enjoy with their meal. More

This was as advertised, serene and beautiful. Lovely setting, good food, friendly staff. It is a yoga retreat and my only comment would be that a group of 15 or so yoga devotees arrived on our second day which changed the tone somewhat. I would still recommend it as a lovely getaway for a few days.

We thank you for your review and are glad you enjoyed your visit. Although yoga teachers sometimes bring their students here for vacations or trainings, we do not consider Casa Grande to be a yoga retreat. However, we do offer morning yoga classes which are enjoyed by many of our guests. More

I wanted a place away from the hustle and bustle where I could decompress, breath in some fresh air, see lots of green and sleep in but still have access to a few day trips. Casa Grande did not disappoint. No, this is not San Juan or a place for clubbing, playing pool, or dancing....you can go to San Juan... More

My husband and I stayed 3 days at the Casa Grande while on a 10 day vacation to Puerto Rico this past October. I have to say, we both keep referring back to the relaxing, tranquil time we had at this mountain retreat. I daydream now about swinging in the hammock right outside your doorway reading a book and gazing... More

Our family (two children ages 6 and 8) stayed for three nights in February. Overall, it was a lovely experience, and I would go back. I got the sense that children were welcome, which is not always the case with hotels that emphasize quiet and tranquility. The rooms are probably the weakest link of the experience. They were very serviceable... More

Thank you for the constructive review. We'll consider more lighting for the guest rooms. Each bed has a top sheet, blanket and bedspread but we're glad to provide and additional blanket upon request. The dispenser in the shower has a combination body wash/shampoo. The morning yoga class is gentle and relaxing and suits the majority of students. The space is... More

This is a great place to relax in a hammock on the porch next to your room, watch the clouds pass over the mountains, take a gentle yoga class, and have good healthful food. You can also sit by the spring fed pool or take a hike in the forest. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the owner... More

This small lodge/cabins lived up to all our expectations. Beautiful, relaxing, good food. Yes the walls between the rooms are very thin, and the coqui frogs are loud at night. But these are small compared to the rest of the experience. We recommend driving the 20 minutes north to Lago Dos Bocas for the pleasure of the free boat trip... More

So glad you enjoyed the Casa Grande experience so much. Most of the students who attend morning yoga are either first timers or beginners so the class is geared to that population. We welcome advanced practitioners to attend the class and if they don't find it challenging enough to move into their own practice as they see fit. More
