We agree with the recent reviewers -- El Hotelito is a peaceful, breathtaking place. With five large, screen-free windows and a balcony, our room felt at times like part of the surrounding forest. It was what we wanted, and we would go back. But there are a few things we wished we had known or better researched. First, if you... More

This place is so peaceful. We love it here and will be back for sure. It is an Eco-friendly small hotel that runs on wind and solar power. Raphael Jr. is a great host, bartender and chef! He made the best rice (his mother's recipe). Raphael Sr. is very nice,knowledgeable and fun! Their dogs even greet you! The rooms are... More

I highly recommend the hotelito, the owners are people that take very serious protecting nature and its resources which I truly appreciate. Excellent place to relax and enjoy the amazing views, exotic flowers and vegetation and very familiar hosts. All this made of this place the perfect destination.!!! I would spend hours writing wonderful things of the place, believe me... More

We stayed at this lovely eco-hotel for two weeks. The father and son team were accommodating, friendly and often engaged us in conversations and made recommendations of local sites or restaurants to try. We traveled with two teens (13 & 16) and I was a bit worried about what they would think but they thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we... More

If you come to Puerto Rico, I highly recommend staying here. crazy to get to but when you do, it's amazing. I don't care about the whole green/organic movement really but this place is fully solar powered, which I like because it's in the middle of the rainforest. The guy that runs the place is incredibly helpful and hospitable. The... More

I stayed at El Hotelito for 2 nights last week and absolutely loved it. The ride up is a little rough but totally do-able, especially if you make it up the hill while there's still daylight (if you're checking in after 6:30p, be sure to let them know in advance). The hotel itself was remodeled in the last year and... More

The full name of the hotel says it all and this place REALLY delivers. It is a small hotel (hotelito), in the rainforest (El Yunque), and it is quite an experience. If you understand those basic parameters, you are in for a treat. Definitely ask ahead about staying for dinner (it saves you another trip on the admittedly difficult road... More

This place is beautiful. It is literally located in the middle of the forest as they advertise. We had to drive up the side of a mountain to get there. Once we arrived, we were met by a few friendly dogs. We didn't have a reservation and they were fully booked (they have 6 rooms) but the owner let us... More

A few miles up a challenging road in Puerto Rico's unique rain forest, the end easily justifies the trip. Location is in middle of rain forest with hiking trails starting on property, leading through spectacular foliage. Just over an hour's drive from San Juan International and easy drives to El Yunque National Forest and Fajardo ferry (to Spanish Virgin Islands).... More

This hotel failed spectacularly in the basic comforts. We felt scammed for the price we paid (more than $100/night). Here is the list of problems we experienced during our 1 night stay: - The electrical sockets in the room do not work. None of them. So forget about charging your electrical devices. - There was no electricity at night, from... More

Thank you for all the nice things you mention about El Hotelito. The word scammed in your review is used erroneously , as you had the opportunity to read all our reviews in Tripadvisor, Booking.com and Airbb and research all other hotels in the area. Our room rate is the lowest of any High End hotel in the area. I... More
