Coco & Red
Our newest VIP Suite and for me, the most precious, great memories are within. Name after our most precious pets, Coco & Red, is a very private suite with its own private entrance and balcony.
How many ways can you describe a comfortable bed? That is what we thought! Of course our main objective is to provide you with a comfortable room and a place to sleep during your visit. Each room or suite will also be equipped with satellite television. The rooms are painted in different tropical colors and the Caribbean atmosphere will be enhanced with live tropical plants in each room. Your privacy will not be interrupted by ringing phones. However a telephone will be available on the grounds should you need one. There is wireless Internet service at PFB&B, the best connections are by the lobby area and the terrace on the second floor.
The floor plan for Passion Fruit Bed & Breakfast has a unique layout and in the following we will point out some of those features.
There are two suites separated from the main building. One of them is a two bedroom suite Nales-Quad, with a dividing wall between the beds and the other Luis Magui Mercado- handicap accessible – with a Queen bed and a sofa bed (futon Mattress). They both have balconies, great for large families that want their own space. Maria Esther Dones/Share is on the main building, is the quietest room we have, no windows on the bedroom and a very spacious living room with a sofa bed. These are pet friendly, call us to arrange any special requests for these special family member.
The two rooms on the south side of the building are large rooms and ideal for honeymooners. The distance ocean view from Mouliert is not the only reason to plan your own celebration here, Candal is very private. Great for those guests looking for an spacious area, fresh tropical Caribbean air, lots of windows to alternate the air condition provided already.
The three rooms on the north side of the building are spacious in their own unique ways. The tropical view from these rooms is of La Roca, a famous mountain in Fajardo. Ideal for short time stay, these are our most visited rooms. Baralt, the only one on the second floor, has a cozy bedroom and a very spacious bath.
On the second floor, there are four VIP rooms. VIP Room Coello has a very nice bedroom with a cozy living room where you can relax before going to bed. The half-moon shaped shower is so large no curtain is needed.
Arroyo on the third floor is one of our guest favorite and has a King size bed, very large room.
The two newest Suites are Sofia & George Torres both unique in their own special way. Ideal for honeymooners they both have King size beds. Sofia has large balcony for more privacy and George has a nice tea room.
On the first floor there are three, two-bedroom suites that are ideal for travelers with children or a group of friends. These rooms are close to the pool area. They all have two beds, either Queen or Full and in some cases they also have a sofa bed with a futon mattress for those large families.

Son of Don Julio Mouliert Ocasio, farmer, and Doña Conchita Meléndez, Joaquin decides to follow in his father’s footsteps by becoming a farmer and rancher. He has been named as Farmer of the Year by the Department of Agriculture, on several occasions.
It is not through these recognitions that he is known, but by his performances as a troubadour. It was in his efforts to keep our folklore alive that he has gained recognition. He has been able to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York and is also known as “El Pitirre Fajardeño.”
For over 40 years every 24th of December Fajardo awakens to the rhythms of our “Décima Puertorriqueña” interpreted by troubadours from all over the Island. This entourage is known as “La Parranda Navideña de Joaquín Mouliert” and visits different sectors of Fajardo bringing joy with their singing and celebrating the Spirit of Christmas with our music. Fajardo feels proud of this fine troubadour and “jíbaro puertorriqueño”.
