I found La Paloma Guest House on Trip Advisor. I had never used it before, but I read the reviews, asked a couple of the reviewers questions, which were promptly answered, and found this wonderful little place in the rain forest. When I first spoke to Nilda on the phone, she said,"You know, this is not a five star hotel"... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two night, and it was really one of the best parts about Puerto Rico. The lady who runs this, Nilda, is one of the nicest people I've ever met. She will bend over backwards to make you happy, and cooks an amazing breakfast for you. The area she lives in is really beautiful,... More

When you walk in, Nilda will tell you (as she's hugging you), "This is not a 3-star resort!" And, she's right. Our room was very basic, the bed was lumpy, and there was NO hot water in the shower (this was a major bummer after hiking in the rain all day). We were in this wierd little room in her... More

We booked last minute for our last night in PR, we felt so lucky to find this place! Nilda and her family are so welcoming, showing us a bit of Taino culture and giving us tips on where to go in El Yunque. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the hospitality, the view, swim in the pool... More

We chose Nilda's guesthouse for two nights near El Yunque based on the glowing reviews she's received. We made reservations over a month in advance, confirmed them by phone before leaving home, and then called her again from another part of the island the day before we were to arrive. During the last call she asked us to phone when... More

If you are looking for a luxury resort or hotel, look elsewhere. Nilda opened up her home and this was like staying in a home with your own separate private area with your own swimming pool with an amazing view. We were having a little trouble finding the place and Nilda sent her daughter to a gas station near by... More

Staying with Nelda in the hills near El Yanque Rain Forest was a highlight of our vacation. The views are spectacular and our boys loved the pool. Nelda is an incredible hostess with a wealth of information about the island and Taino culture. She showed us how to use traditional musical instruments and other items from her museum of Taino...

This is a very special place run by Nilda and her fantastic family. She is a gem-truly a rare find of genuine warmth and caring for everyone. Her eagerness to share her Taino culture and life experiences is wonderful, as well as helping people find their way around Ceiba and EL Yunque and see unique places. She is always aware... More

I cannot say enough about La Paloma Guest House. My fiance and I stayed here for two nights, but wished we could have stayed much much longer. Nilda and Laura made us an incredible breakfast with fried coconut bread -- probably the most delicious thing we tasted on our trip. Nilda is one of the kindest and friendliest people I've... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Puerto Rico for the first time this past week. Having never traveled to this country, we were excited to stay in a guesthouse owned by a native Puerto Rican, Nilda. Nilda treated us like family, opening her home and traditions to us. She was easy to contact via cell phone, and even met us... More
