I will never stay here again. Internet sucked, no hot water and rooms were tiny and over priced. There were yellow stains on the bed cover (not sure what that was). The bartenders are too busy trying to pick up on women to take your drink order. Cops showed up the second night we were there to break up something.... More

This is definitely my favorite place to hangout with my friends in Rincon. There you can get some excelent food and you can get some beers while hearing to good music. There you can meet people from around the world because it is frecuently visited by tourists from around the world. If you want to be more relaxed you can... More

This seemed like a run of the mill beach bar without much character during the week. On the weekend, however, it turned into a really fun bar/club filled with locals and tourists alike. Bartenders were friendly and fast. Drinks were a bit on the expensive side. Music was really good- during the week there were live performers and on the... More

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
