We stayed upstairs in the chalet for 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer! Bill, Laurie, and the staff were very helpful and really made our stay great!
I talked to Bill a couple times on the phone while booking the trip and he also gave recommendations for places to stay and go for the remainder of our week trip in Puerto Rico. I slightly injured my knee one week before arriving so I was not able to do the hike on their property. However, Bill recommended a secret trail in the rain forest that I could handle with my knee, and it was amazing with a nice size waterfall and swimming area. Bill also guided us to an awesome private beach in Fajardo.
The breakfast was really fantastic and included fresh juice or fresh smoothies. The breakfast they provide is vegetarian, I am vegan and they prepared a special breakfast for me for no additional charge. I thought that was nice since they only prepare breakfast for 4-6 people. My wife is not vegan and she really enjoyed the breakfasts as well.
The chalet was really great for us because it included a full size stove in the kitchen. It is basically a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor with a three sided balcony. The Villa doesn't have a stove but it is larger and has a fireplace. I recommend you fully reviewing their website before you book. I was a little worried about the lack of air conditioning, but it was very comfortable and they have fans throughout which is sufficient when it’s warmer during the day. At night it is amazing to have the windows open and listen to the coqui frogs and critters of the rainforest. The property is beautiful and peaceful as well as secure.
I highly recommend the Rainforest Inn if you are planning a trip to Puerto Rico!
