At the risk of sounding totally corny, this place is magical! My boyfriend and I only spent 1 night at Carole's but it was the highlight of our PR trip. Her place is right before the entrance to the El Yunque National Park. You're basically in the rainforest here. Carole was friendly and accommodating. She chatted with us for a... More

We experienced a tropical treasure staying at Carole's. Her outdoor kitchen has a wonderful view of trees, flowers, and the ocean in the distance. Our room was colorful with unique decorations & attention to detail. Carole was a gracious host providing us with information about the area & made us delicious banana smoothies & provided snacks for us. We hiked... More

My only hesitation in writing about the wonderful Carole's Rainforest Villas is that the secret will be out and we won't be able to get another reservation. Truly a magical place hosted by a very special lady! The room and location were PERFECT! Amazing views! The cocqui sing you to sleep! The outdoor kitchen is a wonderful--the sights and sounds...

The most fantasic place! The location, view, surroundings, beautifully decorated and comfortable room, and wonderful host, Carole, and her happy puppy, Tiki, and gorgeous kitty, Goochie! The outdoor kitchen is a dream come true! My husband picked banana leaves and with Carole's assistance, grilled fish in them...delicious! What a great place to sit and relax after a day of hiking...

There are no words that can even begin to touch how phonomenal our experience was at Carole's. This is PR's best kept secret. The bedroom was colorful and cozy with pretty music playing when we arrived. There were even white fluffy towels in the shower :) Pictures cannot do justice to how amazing the kitchen is. I could have easily... More

Shhh, don't tell anyone else about this place, OK? I might want to go back and I want to make sure it's available since it's just one bungalow. We spent three blissful nights in this hideaway. Carole is a charming and accommodating hostess. The outdoor kitchen is amazing. I'm sure it rains, but didn't the four days that we stayed... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. There is an absolutely spectacular view of the rainforest and beach in one shot from her outside kitchen. You stay in her guest house which is netted but open to the weather. It rains a lot in the rainforest which keeps the temperature not too bad but it is humid. I think this place... More

We enjoyed 2 days & nights at Carole's: hers is the last place on the road to the El Junque rainforest, but remember that this road past her place has been closed for most of 10 years due to a landslide. The official entrance to the visitor center is only 20 minutes away. You may hear road crews driving in... More

Hi NM, Thanks for the review and am sure glad you enjoyed your visit to our lovely place in the rainforest! I did call the Department of Transportation and spoke with Sr. Jose Uno who stated the construction work should be complete by June 2013. So for others wondering if a truck will be driving past the property Monday-Friday, construction... More

We stayed here for two nights on January 20 and truly loved it. We arrived to a very sweet villa, upon entering: soft music playing a variety of cute light fixtures lit, clean and floral scents, and colorful Caribbean eclectic decor. The floor is made of large interesting tiles. It has an open air screened window looking out on your... More
