Hacienda Gripiñas

Hotel in Jayuya

Ensconced in this beautifully restored coffee hacienda dating from 1858 and nestled in the shadow of Cerro de Punta, guests wander creaking floors through rooms furnished with antiques and historic coffee posters, and rock in wicker chairs on the breezy balconies.

The historical building is dignified and timeless, yet don’t expect coastal-style luxury: the rooms are very simple, staff have a couldn't-care-less attitude and the cooking has plummeted in quality of recent years. The three-day packages include meals, but midweek rates are by far the best bargain. Prices increase at weekends.
