Ceiba County Inn was beautiful, quiet (except the frogs and creature noises - but we slept surprisingly well), the staff was friendly and helpful, the dogs and cats were sweet and entertaining.
You definitely want to have a car with you. Finding the location was not difficult with the directions (Note: my GPS never found satellites on the trip). The check-in/ lounge/dining area has travel info, TV, games, affordable snacks/drinks (closes after 9 p.m., I think). So bring food if you want more to eat at night, or expect to drive 15+ minutes to a restaurant. (Metropol, I think in Fajardo, was one place we went, and it was a nice sit-down restaurant, despite being in a strip mall). There was a small fridge in the room, with mini freezer space.
Before we got there I didn't realize how close everything is: Fajardo and Luquillo sites are close by and easy to get to. We didn't really find much going on in Ceiba while we were there (it rained the day we might have gone to a beach there, so we ended up going to el Yunque that day).
Wifi worked great on the patio or upstairs. Magazines in the room, and books available to borrow. Not the hottest of shower water, but didn't need to be. They provided beach towels in a tote bag in addition to room towels/linens. I don't think we even turned on the AC while we were there (2 nights). Breakfast was tasty with fresh fruit, baked goods, coffee, tea (and some variety each day).
Would recommend/go back...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled on 12.5 Acres in the foothills of the Luquillo Mountains of northeastern Puerto Rico, perched on a ridge crossing a valley, the Ceiba Country Inn invites you to come experience the quiet beauty of the countryside. Dramatic views to the ocean with Culebra Island on the horizon, and inland to the rolling mountains of El Yunque await you as the tropical breezes and songs of the birds and coquis welcomes you.
