Surrounded by the Guánica Dry Forest and its undeveloped coastline, this two-story, low-slung resort is perhaps the island’s most quintessentially Caribbean property, right down to its red roofing and the verandas and terraces surrounding the property. It’s popular with locals and European travelers looking for a true nature experience, and it’s one of my favorite resorts in Puerto Rico. It’s among the most laid back properties on the island, yet, there’s lots to do: visiting offshore cays and deserted beaches, diving, bird-watching, or simply enjoying the large pool and lush grounds filled with towering palms, flaming flamboyant trees, and tumbles of violet and burnt orange bougainvillea. Standup paddleboards, kayaks, and snorkel gear are available at the on-site water sports center that can also arrange diving, fishing, and sailing trips. Beginners can experience the tropical splendor beneath the water through “snuba,” which offers shallow diving with lighter weight equipment more akin to snorkeling. The large simple rooms have subtle tropical interiors, with double door openings to terraces or balconies, modern oversized bathrooms, and comfortable beds and furnishings. With a spa, health club, tennis, and fine restaurant, there’s little reason to leave.
