Right on the beach, a very extensive menu, and reasonably priced beer. Our food, off the sandwich menu was good, and generous portions! Location is GREAT: right on the beach. Service was very good. Just don't drive here in a Hummer or full size pickup ... Narrow, twisty roads. And they do have WIFI.

I tried to check out this spot a couple of years ago, but they were renovating; visited this year & it was worth the wait! During the day Surfers catching waves at Sandy Beach @t night it's transform into a party with the sea & the stars as witnesses. Good Happy Hours too! Big Thumbs Up!!!

I love Rincón area, specially near Tamboo. I went there last Friday, and asked for mojitos. They have new employees --bartenders. We asked for mojitos... It feels like they are adding soda to it, and they're using so much peppermint that is hard to distinguish the flavor I asked for . Mine was a guava mojito, and my friend's mojito... More

We had a wonderful time here, we had shown up UN-announced after a long, long, long drive from Puerto Rico, we stumbled upon this place trying to find another hotel. We checked rates, which were pretty decent. The owner was absolutely amazing, he tried helping us in every way possible. He saw the stress I was going through with my... More

Went there after being in doomes beach, for a sunset dinner. This place is on my top list if you ever go to Puerto Rico, just the view makes the experience so unforgettable. Food is fresh, I had a fish... Cant wait to go back for surfing and to have a romantic dinner.

We were not dissapointed at all! The view was amazing and the sunset was breath taking! We ordered the fried calamaries for appetizers and... More
