What a gem of a find . Feeling up for something WAY different? This is it . You are a solid 30 min away from town , 15 min from nearest super market , and the roads in and out are , tight . Waze App will get you get there no problem . Bring a cooler for drinks and bring snacks . This place is vegan . Inside the room there is no fridge or microwave . No a/c but it got so cool and breezy at night , didn't need it . Couples .... run to this place . Simply the most romantic spot , ever . Didn't even get to the hiking trails or the river that runs along the property :( but i'll be back with the boyfriend .

This is a beautiful mountain retreat with excellent vegan food. We loved the cabins and listening to nature from our room. The food is high quality and you get what you pay for. There were few people there which made for a very serene getaway. This is a mountain retreat so there are many steps straight up to the cabins. Additionally the drive there is on narrow switchback roads. The views are beautiful and we loved the owner’s dogs. They completed the scene.

We stayed at this retreat for two nights in July. It takes some time to get there from the metro area and feels isolated. Unless you know the area well it is best to get there before sunset. It is a good place to relax and take it easy. The room was comfortable and basic in its furniture. The addition of the hammock in the balcony was a nice detail. No TV or small fridge in room. In my opinion, these are minor drawbacks. We brought snacks and bottle water. Wi-fi signal was adequate. This place offers yoga classes, spa services, and breakfast and dinner (vegan). We did have our meals on site. However, you have the option of getting your meals elsewhere in town. Please keep in mind that the room rates are a bit steep and adding meals, drinks, and other services will make your stay more expensive. This place has a swimming pool that we used during our first night there. Meanwhile, from Utuado you can drive to other towns in the area to explore them. In Utuado, you can visit the Caguana Indigenous Ceremonial Park, Cañón Blanco, Tanamá River , etc. Overall, our stay was a good and relaxing experience. I would recommend the place if you want to stay in the central mountainous region of PR.

If you’re looking for peace, quiet and something off the beaten path - this is a great option Guest rooms are excellent, well laid out and with hammocks. Be advised no AC (just a fan) but it cooled off in evening for pleasant nice sleep. The pool is terrific and the 10 minute hike to the waterfall is a stunning place of beauty. The hike up the mountain is a bit overgrown and doesn’t resolve to a view. The food onsite was a pleasant departure for our family - all vegetarian priced fixe. Prepared well and lovely experience. Bring in your own stuff if your kids have other presences. Overall a great experience - the only improvement would be the “services” of massage and yoga. Inquired in advance to setup appointments and was told to request upon checkin. When arrived no yoga instructor or masseuse available - other than that it was a lovely stay in the mountains Great for couple, ok for families (as long as your kids are well behaved and can take a break from digital devices)

This place is like a dream! Morning yoga a 8am, gorgeous pool, delicious food (pre-set 3 course dinner for $35). I also got a massage and it was the best I have ever received. We were in room 7 at the top of the hill and it was fantastic. There is hiking onsite but we did not do because it rained. There is a cute dog that will follow you allow and hammocks to relax at every room. So so wonderful!!

The site is spectacular, it promotes total disconnection and relaxation by admiring the beautiful landscapes of the place. Each person can appreciate the mountains around, the fauna (many beautiful birds can be seen in the surroundings), and the flora (lush and beautiful vegetation). The staff at the place works as a team and seem like family, they get along very well. They are very attentive in everything, and the owner sits to talk with his guests at the table before starting dinner. We took two private classes 1) Anti-rheumatic Asana & 2) Pranayama and meditation with the resident instructor which we enjoyed and appreciated very much. Each private class helped a lot to relax us, releasing the accumulated tensions of work. The resident chef made us tasty vegetable omelets for breakfast that kept us satisfied beyond lunchtime. The dinners were outstanding and very balanced, starting with the first course, then followed by the main course to finish with dessert. We were honored and blessed by having this great opportunity of experiencing the culinary abilities and love from all the kitchen staff directed by the resident chef and supporting personnel. Each time that I had eaten at vegan places everything in the offered menu was carbohydrates and did not include the plant protein as part of the plate (we had to place a separate order) that makes you feel satisfied. We stayed for 3 nights, and the chef prepared tasty 5-star dishes that made the dinners memorable moments. In conclusion, all the staff at Casa Grande Mountain Retreat did everything with love which in turn made our stay special and magical.

The mountains of PR give you a flavor of rural life decades ago. Casa Grande nestles in a lovely valley far from any big town - and be advised the roads are narrow and old-style twisty-turny. Distances may seem short on the map, but allow LOTS of time to get from here to there. The Casa consists of a main building surrounded by a cluster of "tree houses" perched on the mountainside. Accommodations are simple and clean. The Casa has a dining room which is good because it's a long drive to anywhere else for dinner. Food is adequate, nothing special. There are a couple of pretty unexciting hikes right nearby. Other than that, very little "to do", which drove my husband nuts. If you want to do activities relatively nearby - caves, telescope, etc - be sure to check their schedules. - We had wanted to do these, but they were not open the days we were there (beginning of the week).

This is the best place to disconnect, layback and relax in the middle of the forest. There is no TV, no wifi, no internet access, our phones reception didn't work and it was the best thing ever! No one was attached to their phones. (You can use the office phone if you need to make a call.) We played board games we brought and some that they had there. We bonded as a family and that's what we needed. The place is clean, when it rains it feels amazing, every cabin has a hammock, the beds are nice, the rooms have a fan, there is hot water and everyone is friendly. You can hear the river sounds nearby and the night time tropical forrest sounds. There is a trail nearby, probably like a mid level hike in the middle of the forest, that was fun. There is a restaurant, but you have to make reservations for dinner lunch. You can also drive to other areas for food, prob like 25-30 minute ride. This place is for people that want to disconnect and be surrounded by nature. Bring your books and board games! Just sit in the hammock and relax.

It is exactly as described and seen in the pictures. Located in the center of mountain range of Puerto Rico, peaceful, beautiful views, great pool to relax and excellent food. Great place for a retreat, plan hiking trips, kayaking in the lagoon, or just chill and swing in the hammock located at the porch of every cabin.
