We had a great stay at Borinquen. The facility is fabulous - set on 6,000 acres adjacent to Rincon La Vieja National Park. It is "into the wild" with getting there requiring you to drive on a rocky, dirt road about 12 miles off the highway.
The grounds of the hotel were pristine. We saw lots of monkeys, toucans and other wildlife right outside our room. They have a big pool, hot springs and mud baths we all enjoyed. We stayed in a standard room the 1st night and then the JR Suites the rest of our trip. The Jr Suites sit at the top of the hill (resort rooms start at the bottom of a hill and work their way up) and have an outstanding view which is worth the walk up the steep hill (or you can ask the front desk to get you a ride which our kids did). I would highly recommend the Jr Suites - they are newer, bigger and much more recently built than the other rooms. It is worth the small difference on cost - night and day in terms of quality of room.
The service at the hotel was very friendly and accommodating. Just realize that the pace of service is more leisurely than one gets in the U.S. - that is just the way things are in CR. Everyone from the guides on our horseback riding to the front desk to the wait staff at the restaurant worked hard to make our stay enjoyable.
The food was good as well, especially the Saturday night buffet they had - steaks, Mahi Mahi, Chicken on the grill were awesome. Breakfast was good as well.
