We loved our stay at Casa Grande and would definitely recommend it. I do feel that it was advertised as being a little nicer than it was. Not to say it wasn't nice, but the grounds were certainly more rustic than I was led to believe by the web. The room was clean and comfortable. The views were incredible. There isn't much in the area, as it's pretty secluded up in the mountains. As a result, you're probably going to eat a few meals at their in house restaurant. Honestly, most of the food in Puerto Rico wasn't amazing, but the restaurant here certainly wasn't the best. It wasn't bad, but I'd certainly stick to simple dishes on the menu. I think their 4 star rating on trip advisor is very adequate. It's a very enjoyable place to visit, but not all it could be. One other note, the walls between the rooms were little more than plywood. We could hear the couple next to us coughing through the night and it sounded like they were right in our room.
