This is by far our favorite place to stay in Puerto Rico. If you are looking for a place away from hectic, loud tourist areas, this is for you. The rooms are tasteful and well decorated. They are private and each one has a great view. The inn is located on a quiet lagoon with clear water and a short trip to a great beach. The staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and gracious hosts. The rooms were very clean.
We saw iguanas and countless birds and fish. Most rooms have a full kitchenette, but don't expect tv or cable. There is wireless internet, but the focus of the inn is on the natural beauty.
IF you want to see the real puerto rico, take some time and visit Mary Lee's!
Unique Quality: Great views, Great service, Great people, Private/Quiet location
Directions: Near Guanica
Really a great place if you want a bit of peace and quiet, and don't mind driving for approx. 30 min. to find some fun if you can't provide it yourselves.... However, the Copamarina is not that far, but not my kind of fun either.
I suggest to stay a few days and enjoy the tranquillity, and move on if and when you get bored.
Mary Lee herself is very helpful and hospitable once she gets started preferably not before 8 am in the morning. But that's forgiven as she is around 80 - respect this, please when checking out. She does take some credit cards now (feb 2007) if the line is running. Better to bring cash to be on the safe side (or try Copamarina nearby).
Unique Quality: Accomodation is VERY spacious and enjoyable, although the electricity installations are hazardous and triggered me to sleep on the terrace.
Nevertheless the grand ol' lady Mary Lee has made a place truly worth a visit which I wouldn't have missed for the world.
A boat trip more or less from our front porch to Gilligan's Island - with mangrove beach coves amazingly BEAUTIFUL - was one of the very special treats this place has to offer. If you're into bird watching it's a Mecca too. And the weather, oh my - when it was raining everywhere else especially in San Juan, it was sunny and warm at Mary Lee's.
Directions: From San Juan take the main road (there is no other) and turn left towards Ponce. Continue on route 2 to Guánica where you turn left again towards the sea and the Dry Forest. You can even find it on the tourist map...
