This was by far the best hotel/guesthouse experience on my 8 day trip to Puerto Rico. I am a solo, woman traveler and drove around Puerto Rico for 8 days. I came by Barefoot Travelers Rooms while reading Lonely Planet book and was able to get a room that same day. The guesthouse consists of 3 rooms and I stayed there while two couples were vacationing there as well. Immediately upon arrival I felt at home as the other guests offered me a drink and some of their food they had purchased for the shared kitchen. The following night we all barbequed and drank wine. The owners of the home also have various activities they host, handgliding, kayaking etc. I opted to sign up for the kayaking trip to see the monkeys on a nearby island ('Monkey Island') and it was an amazing experience. Bob the host, had a wealth of knowledge about the island and its history in regards to the monkeys (monkeys are observed on this island for research purposes).
The room I stayed in was very clean and neat. Fresh linens & towels provided each day and option for AC or to have windows open. I personally preferred to have windows open, but AC is an option (previous reviewer had claimed that AC does not exist, not true).
Highly recommend, especially if you are a solo traveler and looking to meet other travelers.
