We found the Caribe Mountain Villas a welcome retreat from the bustling city and traffic of Puerto Rico. Tucked away from the highways and dangling off a peaceful mountainside in the middle of the jungle, halfway between San Juan and the beaches on the northeast corner of the island, it provided a wonderful jumping off point for our Puerto Rican...

My mother, my husband, 1-year old daughter and I stayed at Caribe Mountain Villas for two nights in December 2008, and had a very disappointing experience due to the lack of cleanliness and service. Our villa was unswept when we arrived, and I had to walk down to the host's quarters to request a broom, mop and bucket so I... More

We stayed on the first floor villa for 5 nights in December 2008. First off, the drive to the villas is not very pleasant. Its a very narrow road that goes through the mountains and has several blind turns and the road has no lights what so ever. The drive from the airport (SJU) is only 25 minutes but we... More

This is very late in coming, however three of us, my wife, sister-in-law and myself spent three fantastic nights at the Caribe Mountain Villas prior to our cruise in October of 2007. My wife and sister-in-law are Puerto Ricans from San Francisco and were very impressed with the unit that we had. Please note - if you are used to... More

Please be forewarned that the website photos are misleading! We stayed here for two nights in Spring 2008 and would not stay again. While the pool was nice, the two bedroom "villa" (more like apartment) was outdated, complete with warped cabinets, bathroom doors that slammed, and patio doors that did not close properly. While we were looking forward to hearing... More

Caribe Mountain Villas is truly a unique little pocket of paradise. We had the most amazing time here - and the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. The grounds of the property are so beautiful, you just cant help to immediately feel relaxed and at home. Every morning I was amazed at the gorgeous view from our mountain top... More

Caribe Mountain Villas is a hidden gem! Our first visit was for six days in February of 2008. We had such a great time that we booked again for the end of March for twelve days this time. The owner Mitchell is a perfect host. He arranged many activities for us, including a snorkeling trip on the Spread Eagle II,... More

Mitchell gave us perfect directions from the airport. From the minute we arrived we fell in love with our villa; perfectly nestled in a lush garden setting. The "house" we rented was clean and comfortable and the airconditioning worked perfectly. Everything is very simple. Don't expect luxurious accomodations. The view from our wrap around porch was to die for!! I... More

When first seeking a place to stay in Puerto Rico that would be off the beaten path, safe, fun and relaxing we stumbled upon Caribe Mountain Villas. We read the reviews on TripAdvisor to confirm that it was a legitimate establishment but shortly after arriving we discovered our expectations were greatly exceeded. I am sure it is not for everyone... More
