"The most spectacular and unique venue in Puerto Rico, reflecting the spirit and traditions of the island" ...

Nestled away at the end of a long white picket fence, in the foothills of El Yunque rainforest, looking down on the lights of the city you will find a jewel of a place. Hacienda Siesta Alegre is a beautiful Spanish Colonial, rustic-style residence located just 35 minutes east of San Juan. Offering elegant open terraces, the spectacular setting and continuous easterly trade winds, Hacienda Siesta Alegre is an enchanting and magical dinner option.

A true residence, the living room has a fireplace and a side room has a pool table, which many guests enjoy before dinner. It has a giant gazebo style effect, all open on the sides, with great wood deck patios and a Spanish Colonial style roof of unusual Teja tiles. The modern open-air kitchen was used by Martha Stewart on a television special featuring Puerto Rico’s most celebrated chefs and has been used as the site for many movies.


The Facts:
• Capacity to seat 340 people under the roof; the green areas around the Hacienda have the capacity to seat another 250 people
• Series of intimate terraces, lawns and rooms - the entire mansion is open to your guests
• There are 5 bathrooms, plus one in the service area.
• There is a large air conditioned service area for the caterers – the bar and music area are under a roof, yet in an open area
• The AC conference room seats 50 theater style or 25-30 at tables.
Recent Feedback:
"My incentive group had a wonderful time at the Hacienda! The owners truly made us feel at home.
Hacienda is a unique venue and one that will truly make you feel that you are experiencing Puerto Rico. The owners and management team are wonderful to deal with -- flexible and creative. It seems as though it would be a perfect place for almost any sized group for reception, buffet, or seated dinner. Truly, a night to remember..." Read less

"Beautiful." "This is something from a fairy tale." "Oh my god, where are we??"

Those are just some of the statements from the guests who attended our wedding at the Hacienda Siesta Alegre. The pictures online don't do it justice. When you pull up to the location, you are wondering where you are. And then you walk in.

The beauty and Puerto Rican feel of the location cannot be put into words. The whole night seemed like we were in a fantasy, literally. The place is absolutely gorgeous and is perfect if you want your wedding to be perfect. Norma, the owner, is also outstanding and her spirit is infectious. She keeps a smile on her face and is willing to do whatever to support your special day.

The Hacienda Siesta Alegre is a hidden gem in Rio Grande, PR and I almost hope no one else finds it so it can be our little secret! Huge thank you to Norma and her team for allowing us to have our special day at her magical place.

I had my wedding & reception here a few weeks ago and if you read the other reviews, I can back-up all the comments that Hacienda is absolutely gorgeous and an amazing place unlike any other in Puerto Rico. I grew up in PR and I had never heard of this venue/B&B. It is a hidden gem that I was so happy to share with my husband's family from Michigan and all our friends who traveled from the States. You can see the rainforest on one side and the coast on the other side. Also, the extra lights added to the main reception area made it magical in the evening. I would recommend this venue to anyone as it is so unique, beautiful, and what you would want travelers to experience of the island. The location is such that it can be a classy/semi-formal event (as mine was) or a more relaxed informal event.
The bride and groom get a room for the wedding night included (with breakfast) if they choose to take it. My husband and I regret not deciding to stay there. I would highly recommend it!

I recently had my wedding in the Hacienda, and I have to say pictures do not do this place justice! Everything was absolutely amazing, the venue blew all of our guests away! No one could get over just how beautiful everything was, there is little need to decorate anything else. And if you are thinking about pictures - this is the perfect place to take wedding pictures - the lights, colors, and landscape are perfect.

I had never being to the venue prior to my wedding but I do not regret - at all - having it all be a surprise. Staff was responsive and very very kind onsite. If you want a unique, out of the beaten path, gorgeous venue this is the place to be. Glad we took the plunge.

Hacienda Siesta Alegre (HSA) is truley an earth shattering magical venue to have your wedding. Your wedding pictures will be priceless and it will keep people reminiscing for a long time afterward. Planning with them...well...we were assigned to Larissa Perez and I just figured this is how Puerto Rico rolls (poor delayed responses etc.), but in actuality this was our ONLY vendor we had this issue with. If you send an email you might get one back in 3 days with possibly not having all your questions answered. You may have to call the office a couple of times to finally reach your contact person. Once it was crunch time, 2 weeks before the wedding the lines of communication were 100% more clear. The actual day of the wedding my husband did have to approach our HSA coordinator as our personal day of coordinator (Sorry, didn't fully trust HSA) was not getting much feedback or help in setting up, but once they were aware of the problem they quickly jumped into place. Communication is key, don't stay quiet. I would 100% get married here again, the lack of prompt emails not hearing from my contact person for about a month in the beginning of the planning etc. is TOTALLY worth it!!! During the wedding the staff was AMAZING, very attentive to our guests. Bar staff was quick , never a line at the bar (our family can drink!) We really had a wedding of a lifetime!!!!

There are no words to accurately describe HSA. Beautifully stunning is the first thing that comes to mind! I first found HSA a year prior to getting engaged - I knew I wanted to get married in a hacienda and we already knew it would be in PR. When I did a google search, HSA was the first one on the list and I fell in love at first sight! We visited in person a year later, once we were engaged, and the house was exactly like the pictures! I was done and knew that it would be the place where we'd get married. Not only is the house gorgeous but Norma, the general manager, is such a pleasure to work with. She is so positive and upbeat that you can't help but fall in love with the place even more. We were on a strict budget and HSA was great at working with us so that we could get everything we wanted for our guests. Our guests LOVED HSA and everyone is still talking about how amazing the place is - it's really like something out of a dream and I'm so happy we chose it for our wedding!

What a WONDERFUL and MAGICAL wedding me and my husband had at Hacienda Siesta Alegre. We and our family LOOOOOOVED our wedding day so amazingly much. Hacienda Siesta Alegre is the place to choose if you want a gorgeous, vintage, familiar, breezy, cozy and rustic feel for your day. The contact they assigned to us to work with was Larissa Perez. I found the service not as professional, as responsive and of the quality I was hoping for. They have not standardized they wedding services and coordination they offer and that makes them not as easy as one would like to work with for a day as your wedding day.

Anyway... the place was so perfect for me that at the end of the day it did not matter. All of my guests were fascinated with our choice and really enjoyed the day-night.

You will love the place too.

I highly recommend Norma and the Hacienda Siesta Alegre. Norma was very patient and answered all my questions promptly. She was extremely kind, patient and helpful throughout my wedding planning process. While we were planning a destination wedding, we needed to change our plans to due to death in the family. Although I did not have the opportunity to get married at HSA as planned, I still highly recommend Norma and HSA and am leaving my review based on her responsiveness, kindness and attention to detail. I hope to visit HSA sometime n the future.

My husband and I recently got married at HSA and had an absolutely magical time. The venue was stunning and blew away all of our guests - there is truly nothing like it! The wedding itself went wonderfully, and there is backup space in case of rain, which thankfully we did not need to use. We met the owners, Linda and Greg, who are fantastic people. If you stay overnight as a guest, you will be woken up fairly early by the roosters, but it's ok, cause you are greeted by a delicious breakfast. My only suggestion would be to ask for Norma as your event contact, not Larissa. Larissa was very nice and a super cool girl, so I hate to leave a negative review about her. But being an event professional myself, I expected better/clearer communication. Her responses were delayed, extremely unclear and confusing and led to a lot of repeated questions and unnecessary stress. I met Norma on my second morning there, and I only wish I had asked for her from the beginning. That said, everything will still come together beautifully no matter who your contact is, and I could not recommend the venue more strongly for those looking for a special wedding experience.

This place is AMAZING, STUNNING and MAGICAL. I found this place by accident and had to have it. I had never seen the place in person only through pictures online. My sister-in-law arrived before I did to the venue and she couldn't believe her eyes how amazing this place was. My wedding was so romantic and perfect and that is purely because it was at Hacienda Siesta Alegre. Norma who is the manger for the property is amazing to deal with and truly a great asset to the Hacienda. Most of my wedding guest stayed on the property for 2 nights and we all did not want to leave this magical gem. My husband and I have promised to go back every year for our anniversary as there isn't another place that compares. HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
