Hacienda El jibarito it's an eco adventure little hotel. With rooms that's resemble antique houses, and villas for groups. Have a pool with pool bar, and inside little pool, restaurant that serves local soul food. It's quiet in the middle of the San Sebastian mountains, and you can enjoy horse riding and also you can enjoy a beautiful river with... More

Was totally impressed, you transport yourself in time. The food is excellent, the service amazing; the facilities and location outstanding. You can have your breakfast and lunch, enjoying a spectacular mountain view. I had the best cappuccino ever. The Sangria is so good. The rooms have a private balcony with a nature view to relax. They have private hiking trials... More

This is a low key hotel, with wooden rooms that are very romantic. The restaurant serves authentic puertorrican cuisine. The pool is small. If you are looking for night life don't go to this place. If you want to relax in the mornings don't go to this hotel, the DJ at the bar plays loud music at 10 am.

I have visited the restaurant a couple of times and sometimes you think that the second visit it's going to be better, but it didn't happen, the food it's nothing extraordinary and the service was automatic not attentive.It's too expensive for what you get.

Went a few years back with my family to experience the flavors of their food. We went on a Sunday to take advantage of their buffet. The flavor of the sofrito and oregano is ohhh so good!!! The food was delicious, you could taste the use of fresh produce. You get to choose from a great variety of local dishes... More

Let me start by saying that I'm not a big fan of Puerto Rican food. El Jibarito does deliver local ambience and traditional favorites. Perhaps it is me but Monfongo just seems to be too leaden in texture, and the fried corn fritters seemed to have no leavening. My husbands roast pork was dry. One bright spot was the Sangria....
