Well located hotel that needs TLC

Posted Jan 7, 2016
Pros: Location is great.
Cons: They need an actual sofa bed for kids, and better refreshing for the rooms.
Location: There is Casa Pueblo, the forest, many Coffee Haciendas. Parque Familiar Adrian Padua on Jayuya and
This is very well located, there's plenty of natural places to see and visit. But it's not peace and quiet. It gets very noisy during the night with private parties, some of them until 3AM. I went looking for some quiet time but it was crowded. To get a table in the afternoon at the hotel restaurant you have to wait up to three hours. It was not as easy as I expected and checked out on the second night. The rooms need refreshing, it smells moldy and it does not include a sofa bed but a very uncomfortable tubular futon.

Noisy and overpriced

Posted Jan 3, 2016
Pros: The restaurant
Cons: The noise and the comfort of the cabin.
Location: Located in the mountains, 20 min away from Ponce.
There are 2 open it discos on the same site, that are playing music till 2 to 3 am. The cabin is clean but has really limited comfort. On the other side the food is good and reasonable compared to the price of the room.

Not my cup of tea

Posted Sep 23, 2015
Pros: Eddie at the bar was great. He was very nice and took great care of us with our drinks.
Cons: A/C and beds
I booked this place for two nights but checked out after one. The bed was old and uncomfortable and their idea of A/C is not the same as mine. It is a small unit high on the wall in one room and it takes forever to cool the room. Whomever is unlucky and has to sleep on the futon will never be cool. Also, the fan in the "living room" sounded like an airplane. I must have stayed on the wrong night because the loud music from the bar, I assume, played until almost two in the morning. Then at 7 am started the Jeep rally. It was noisy all night and started early the following morning. This place reminded me too much of camping. If you like camping, then this place is for you.

Quiet, peaceful and beautul setting.

Posted Apr 25, 2015
Exceptionaly friendly, bilingual staff. Stayed two nights and loved it. It was very easy to get to from San Juan and/or Ponce. Enjoyed the pool and even took a dip in the river, just a two minute walk from the villas. Good food and heaping proportions. Highly recommend this parador as a great get away. 5 star all the way. Don't forget the bug repelent though!

Pleasant hotel and beautiful surroundings.

Posted Feb 25, 2015
Pros: Pleasant staff, beautiful surroundings.
Cons: Decibel level of the music, better maintenance of the rooms.
The loud music in the restaurant made it impossible to have a conversation and was very unpleasant. Live music is great, but they need to tone down the amps and make it dinner music, not outdoor concert level. The toilet ran all night, and the shower was inconsistent. The Smoke alarm needed a new battery and chirped every 60 seconds for a couple of hours. A request at the front desk for someone to come and fix it was made, but it took at least two hours before someone arrived to help out.

The place to stay in the Central Mountains of PR

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: Very clean and service-oriented with friendly staff. I felt at home.
Cons: More tour or amenity options offered by concierge.
Location: - Casa Pueblo in Adjuntas - Parque Ceremonial Indigena Caguana (Utuado) - Hacienda Buena Vista (Ponce)
This area of PR is very rural and considerably less developed than the Greater San Juan region so when evaluating Villas Sotomayor, I think it is best to start by putting it into context. It is not a luxurious mountain resort nor it tries to be one. It is distinctively Puerto Rican and it holds to its "Parador" identity well: simple, clean, friendly, honest and eco-conscious. The restaurant food is uber-local (they actually have a farm inside the resort premises) and delicious. The views are amazing and the cabins are cozy. If you are up for the simplicity of it, you will enjoy your stay.
