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

This is one of the best experiences if you don't mind spending a little more. It's a friendly family run hotel in one of the best locations. Warning, it's a rugged drive up the mountain and you'll think you're going the wrong way. Just keep driving you'll be amazed. This hotel is for the nature lovers and those that want... More

This hotel has breathtaking views of El Yunque and Puerto Rico's north coast. A wonderful place to disconnect from your everyday worries. It is calm, quiet and relaxing. It feels amazing waking up windows wide open and so connected to nature. Rafi the owner is always around for a good conversation. Overall, great hotel, lovely experience and highly recommended.

First things first, the owner is hands down the best host I’ve ever met. The hotel is a bit of a trek to get to (and we made the mistake of driving the last half mile in the dark) but once you arrive it is a beautiful sight! We were offered a warm meal upon arrival and quickly took him... More

What a beautiful place on this earth El Hotelito is! Absolutely peaceful with great views, lovely plants and simple, but thoughtfully decorated rooms. (We stayed in room 3 and I looooved the little Dominican figurines). Rafi treated us to a drink on the porch in the evening and with some other travellers we had an interesting, lively and informative conversation... More

As a gift for Father’s Day and our daughter’s birthday, my husband made reservations at El Hotelito, for Friday through Sunday. We printed the directions provided on the website, which were relatively easy to follow. All was fine until we hit the road going to El Hotelito. It is a narrow, one-lane paved road, at least initially. As you go... More

Tripadvisor should be for truthfull and realistic reviews.you lashed at El Hotelito with everything you could make up a week after our General Manager wrote a very professional but negative review about you on Airbb. Clearly you just wanted to damage our reputation. The afternoon you arrived (which was very sunny and hot ) , my son had to drive... More

This place was great. The manager and owner were very nice. A little of there beaten path but sooooo worth the amazing sleep you get. I slept so well hearing all the sounds of the rainforest and periodic rain it was amazing. Very clean, and i loved their dogs too ;)
