Beaches and Pools

Is there a pool on-site?
Located at the skirt of the El Yunque Rain Forest with a country walk to a lap swimming pool over looking the beautiful Caribbean Sea and only ten minutes to Roosevelt Road Naval Station Ceiba. Family run which provides a casual atmosphere that makes you feel part of the island as soon as you arrive and part of the family when you return. Owned by a Taino Indian, hospitality is the rule at this small, casual, clean family guesthouse. Guests receive a history of the Taino Indian, a map of nearby attractions and are free to explore our historical mini-museum. If you are interested in ecology and nature you will enjoy our personalized tours and surely appreciate that we have no mosquitos due to the trade winds.
All our rooms are spacious and decorated with island art. All rooms include a refrigerator, microwave, air conditioning, and satellite TV. Kitchenettes are also available. The lapside pool that faces the Caribbean sea invites all guests to relax and enjoy the sun and water.
The world renounded El Yunque Caribbean National Rain Forest is a fantasic place for the ecotourist to hike and for the casual tourist to enjoy. El Yunque, named after the good Taino spirit Yukyu, gets over 100 billion gallons of annual rainfall and harbors over 240 tree species. The forest is plush with feathery ferns, ropelike vines and exotic flora, all thriving under the leafy canopy of trees. El Yunque is also a bird sanctuary, home of our rare Puerto Rican Parrot. The hiking trails are well-maintained and accessible, designed for foot travel only. Be sure to visit the magnificent cascading waterfalls before you return to La Paloma after an inspirational day at El Yunque.

Fun stay

This was one of the most pleasant places that I have stayed but it is not for everybody. The name should be Neldaxxxxxxxxxxxxxxs hacienda. This is not really a commercial property just a private home with a little extra space that is rented out periodically. The owner is not really a business person just a friendly soul with a little extra space. You are up in the mountain and not really all that close to anything except the mountain. It's great at night when you set outside and listen to the frogs singing.

If you want to spend time in a tropical forests itxxxxxxxxxxxxxxs for you unless you want to camp. You will be treated as family as soon as you arrive. It is close to the bioluminescent bay and I suppose there are beaches nearby. The view is good and the seclusion is wonderful.
We needed a place to stay after a cruise in this fit the bill perfectly. Call her at 787 885 4040 or mobile 787 435 1154. Pay in cash only.

Great place great people!

Nilda was the best, she was more than hospitable towards us. She went out of the way on numerous occasions to help in our planing of day to day things to do. Actually calling for us. Some of these reviews that don't speak well of the Paloma seem of the wall to me. All I can say is, we're counting the days till our next visit to The Paloma inn.

terrible experience

The proprietess at La Paloma Resort seemed to be a caring maternal woman until the time for payment came. She preferred cash and as I did not have cash on me, my partner gave her a debit card and we were told there would only be a hold for $325.00 if we could get her cash the following day. Well I paid her the cash the following day and she said she would reverse the debit card transaction. It is now over 2 months later and she has not reimbursed us. she has told us that her accountant did so but the money never showed up in my partner's account. Everytime i have called I have gotten the runaround. Last week she said she mailed it, it hasn't arrived. I can't believe this was happening b/c she seemed so genuine. I have now filed complaints with the BBB of SE Florida and the Caribbean and my bank was investigating this matter for fraud but just told me b/c i dont have a receipt for the cash transaction, i will not recover my money. I have been so upset by this it has ruined the memories of our trip to Puerto Rico. I would NEVER return to this place.
