"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

We will be celebrating our wedding next February at the Hacienda. We visited the venue this past December and were greeted by Norma, who is the events director. We called for information about the venue and were not expecting her to show us the venue that same day since it was such short notice. She gave us a tour of the place and sent us all the pricing information that same day. Norma also provided us with a list of recommended vendors which was of great help since we are having a destination wedding and are doing all the planning at long distance. Moreover, the place is beautiful and absolutely breathtaking!

The only BAD thing the venue has is Clarissa. At all times during the ceremony she was seen with a serious face, an attitude, grumpy face and even rude. She did not say hi or even smiled to the guess. She told my sister in law the day BEFORE the wedding about an event insurance that was required. On top that everybody had to see her serious/ rude face the entire night, when the DJ played the last song because everyone was chanting for it, he played the song, and this lady CLARISSA came out of no where and asked the DJ to stop the music, and bc of her the music was stopped in the middle of the song, killing the moment and everyones mood, being very rude just like her personality. That not all after paying all the money that we did the groom got changed in the library part of the hacienda when she told my sister in law the entire time that the guys where going to get change in the rooms next to the pool, last minute she change that as well. And her rudeness continues, after my sister in laws daughter fell sleep, she didn't want my sister in law to put my niece in that room because she needed to pump in that room. She wanted my nice to be put on the bottom room of the hacienda, where you need to go down the stairs, the room has no visibility or easy access if my niece woke up. All I'm saying is that the hacienda can hire somebody with more professionalism, better character, some one nicer and somebody that won't ruin what it suppost to be one of the most important day of your life. Everyone at the wedding was talking about how rude she behave during the wedding and how bad she handle the last song situation. She couldn't even wait for the song to end. Other than that the place is really beautiful and I was even planning on having my wedding here but after dealing with this lady CLARISSA. I rather spend the 6500 dollars in some other place. And for the owner you lost a potential deal with with me after everything we went thru with Clarissa attitude and behavior.

Hacienda Siesta Alegre responded with the following comments:

I regret your impression of Larissa is not on a positive note. She has served our HSA Wedding Venue for many years and is considered one of our top sales coordinators. I understand Larissa extended a complimentary room to the bride and groom as a gesture of good faith. Although the poolside room was mentioned, complimentary rooms are dependent on availability and granted at the coordinators’ discretion. In addition, Larissa offered the Bride a complimentary bottle of wine which the Bride graciously accepted. Certainly, these are not acts of malice or rudeness. We believe Larissa’s Bride and Groom left content as neither complained about Larissa’s performance. If this is not the case, please accept our apology.
Liability insurance is required at our reception site. Both liability insurance and event end time are mentioned in the information letter and stipulated in the contract signed by the Bride and Groom.
All of your comments are objectively reviewed. We thank you for complimenting Hacienda Siesta Alegre. I understand Wedding Wire serves as a useful resource to future Brides and highlighting our “beautiful” property is both a compliment and a purposeful note.

We remain at your service,

Hacienda Siesta Alegre

Jason was truly amazing!!! My husband and I were doing everything for our wedding from scratch, no planner, no expectations. Needless to say we were pretty confused about what we were to expect from an officiant and the wedding ceremony. Jason was super helpful, understanding, friendly and fun. Being from New York and having the wedding in Puerto Rico was no easy task. We video chatted, emailed back and forth and had a couple of phone conversations so we were all on the same page.
He sent us a very nice detailed email with the ceremonies he had done in the past. We told Pastor Jay we were not totally into a very religious wedding ceremony and he was completely understanding. He provided us with a template he uses and encouraged us to add/edit whatever we felt necessary to make it more us. The ceremony ended up being everything and more than we could have asked for. I've already had friends ask about him and of course we recommended him to them!

Nick and I went all the way down to Puerto Rico from NY to see a few of the venues we had found on various internet searches. As soon as we pulled up to the Hacienda, Nick and I looked and each other and we knew this would be the place where our wedding would be. It truly looks like out of a movie's dream sequence.
We chose to do both the reception and the ceremony at the Hacienda. The alter overlooks the rain-forest (El Yunque), the reception area is all outside but you are up in the mountains so there are plenty cool breezes the whole time you are there.
Our contact for the Hacienda the whole time was Norma Perez and she was absolutely fantastic, such an eccentric, caring and warm person! We got our venue a year in advanced and we never lost touch with her. She was quick to change anything we asked for and also gave us lots of suggestions as to what would work well there( we did everything ourselves). The Hacienda is also a Bed an Breakfast which was truly a blessing for my mother and I. We were able to stay there the night before the wedding and make all the finishing touches without any added stress.

I would definitely recommend this venue, pictures do not do it justice. It is truly spectacular!!

Our wedding was magical because the HSA is such a magical place to be. When we first went there to check out the venue, it was breath taking (our guests thought so too). The staff took such good care of us (we also rented the inn for our entire family) from breakfast to getting the venue spotless and ready, to finding our lost items the next day. The new hammock house was relaxing and my niece was so happy to be able to feed the horses grapes and hay. The experience is indescribable- you just have to be there!

At our wedding, we also had bar service through the HSA. The bartenders were skilled and kept everyone happy and drinking the entire night. My husband's and my glasses were NEVER empty. They seem to spot us from the bar with half empty drinks and would replace it instantaneously. Our guests were impressed by their assertiveness.

All in all, words can't describe how amazing this place was. You just have to experience it for yourself!

This place is Magical. And having the wedding on the holidays was great as they decorate the place beautiful. The areas to get ready have the character and charm that makes you fall in love with the place. The only drawback is the access that is kind of tricky.

"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 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.

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!
