This review is long overdue…. We were fortunate to find this gem. It is AWESOME! We stayed for 2 wonderful weeks. Our room for the first week was upstairs, overlooking the pool and the ocean. Very comfortable bed, and private balcony that was enjoyed every morning with coffee before we began our day. Our second room was equally great, downstairs,... More

With Rincon as a surf mecca, this spot appears to be a popular spot for that crowd. We took a flyer booking room 203 based on a photo on line. The room was much better than we expected. Gorgeous room with an amazing view of the Caribbean with a constant rolling surf. Very laid back. Room was kept very clean... More

I had one of the two ocean-front rooms here. It was more than comfortable with a huge balcony overlooking the ocean and waves breaking only yards from your door. It was most convenient having a restaurant here as well, so breakfast was just down a few stairs, and the dinners were quite good. This is in the heart of the... More

We spent six nights in Room 254, the king bedroom with private balcony facing the oceanfront at Sandy Beach. Casa Islena is a tiny, relaxed beachfront inn on Rincon's best beach -- miles long, the wild-surf Atlantic side of Rincon (south of the point Rincon faces the calmer Caribbean.) Limited and laid-back service -- the desk is only staffed 10am-4pm,... More

I saw photos of the place on the Internet and decided to give it a try for a family weekend getaway. The pool was filthy and the room I was assigned was facing the bar, so I had to keep the curtains shut all the time. The staff is courteous but the owner, whom I spoke to, has an attitude... More

Our group rented four rooms at Casa Islena during the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Our opinion is that the hotel is in the BEST possible location in Rincon. Each morning the surfers in our group surfed directly in front of the hotel and the yogis in our group went next door to Barefoot Yoga and enjoyed a... More

We only booked for one night but checked out at 7.30am. Our Lonely Planet guide book really talked this place up but we just didn't get it at all. The pool was nice and position close to the beach is good. However the room itself for $200+ did not live up to anywhere near expectations for the following reasons: Poor... More

Right on the beach near popular surf spots. Hotel was clean, comfortable, had a coffee pot and fridge. View was wonderful. Visited during slow period and nearly the only people there. Rained so only took a quick swim. Staff were very friendly and easy going. Would definitely stay again. Am sure this place gets quite busy during high season.

This was the perfect spot to stay for a visit to Rincon. The location is quiet but very close to delicious food, including the hotel restaurant and Tamboo down the street. Staff are lovely, helpful, and relaxed -- as seemed to be the general vibe in Rincon. And the location cannot be beat. Gorgeous pool and perfect quiet beach.

I really enjoyed my stay at Casa Islena for a few reasons, and can only wish that the Wi-Fi was available in the rooms (it only works in the lounge area by the pool). The hotel has well-appointed rooms, a few lounge chairs on the upstairs patio and a lovely pool with lots of lounge chairs. It's a hotel ON... More
