I've been to Casa Grande quite a few times (this being my tenth) and it always gives me what's expected: the soothing sound of the trees all around and no tv, no phone, (almost) no cell signal, no A/C and quiet hours when all the public lighting is turned off and you can enjoy the night sky and the fireflies...

Casa Grande is great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and just slow down. No tv. No wifi. No need for either. Shut down and relax. Staff was great. Setting was wonderful. Enjoyed the relaxing visit! We will return in the winter to enjoy the cool mountain nights! ¡Gracias!

We visited Puerto Rico during off season and came to Casa Grande for a night of R&R after seeing all the great reviews. We were not blown away. The price was the same as other places we'd stayed in Puerto Rico but with far fewer amenities - no A/C, very barebones accommodation, no breakfast included. I was looking forward to...

Thank you for your comments. We're disappointed that Casa Grande did not meet your expectations. Granted, the accommodations are somewhat spartan but all necessaries are provided. The ceiling fan above the beds satisfies most folks needs for ventilation. We do offer a tasty and hearty breakfast from our menu during morning hours from 8 to 10:30 daily. We're glad you...

OMG! What a place for relaxation!!! It was worth every penny. Starting with the wonderful mountains and river views and later arriving to the cabins, it has been the best for me so far this year. The complete staff makes it even better. Service is good, but food...is a delicacy ever tasted. I believe the names of the cooks are...

This is my 4th visit, and each time I go I remember how much I love being in the mountains in PR. This is a very laid back place. The pool is very nice and there is a bit of hiking. Its a great place to come to do some yoga, to meditate and to unplug. My husband wanted internet...

My Family and I had the privilege of staying at Casa Grande last February. The property is equipped with a Restaurant that serves delicious food, so that was a bonus right there. There is a lovely quiet and underused pool that our family had to ourselves for two days, which served as a resting, relaxation stop during our travels around...

Very unique place! Roomy bedrooms with porches and hammocks. We had cabin 8 which had great views of the mountains and the entire property. The rooms are simple - just a bed, tables and a bathroom. No AC, but don't really need it here. The property is very beautifully maintained with many interesting horticultural plantings which the owner has painstakingly...

We brought our 6 year old as we were traveling around PR during Christmas and New Years. He was bored but the food was good at dinner and breakfast. You will get lost if you don't print the directions out as its in the middle of nowhere and you go into no service zones with your phone or GPS system....

Everything is perfect. Neat and tidy. Very nice staff. Make sure to print your way here because cellphone may loose connection. Loved my stay. If you're looking for a completely quiet place this is it. Everything around is green. 👌👍. Food and drinks are excellent. Nature at it's fullest!! It's like traveling back in time in Puerto Rico. No tv....
