So relaxing! The restaurant was superb and the staff top notch! The pool was delightful! Walking on Sandy Beach is a must when you visit Rincon. At Casa Islena it is steps away! Restaurants, bars and shops are within easy walking distance. Can't wait to go back!

Casa Islena is a small hotel located on the surf-side of Rincon. Very relaxing, comfortable, and a terrific location. Not a beach resort; more like a nice inn. Nothing fancy but more than adequate, exceptionally clean. Casa Islena has a small pool but we never used it since a 3-minute walk up the Sandy Beach is perfect for lounging. The... More

It is really convenient place for surf and also nice beach where you can see sunset. Accommodation was really nice because it is close to sea and they also have swimming pool and you can relax in hot time in the swimming pool area and after easily back to the beach. In the room you can find everything what you... More

A local girl that we met scuba diving recommended this inn... which is quaint and clean and has a great little pool and bar/restaurant overlooking the beach - which is apparently the best beach for surfing! :) enjoyed our stay and will be back

We just got back from a beautiful vacation and stay at Casa Isleña. Clean and sweet room. We stayed in room 102, right in front of the pool. Property is on the beach. The food is excellent. In the lobby, they sell organic mosquito repellant. This saved me from mosquito bites because I'm a magnet. The food was excellent.

It would be hard to imagine a much better location to visit Rincon from than the Casa Islena. It is right in the heart of the Rincon surfing areas. The ocean is about thirty feet from the inn's terrace and pool, with a surf break (Antonio's) just offshore. It is not an optimal swimming site, (a rocky reef separates the... More

A hidden gem. Family owned an operated, well staffed. Best surfing was literally steps off their property line. Goid entry ppints , this is the locals favorite spot to surf. Convenient breakfast an lunch with a tiki bar. Great for families an those who want a peaceful retreat. Miles of uncrowded beaches. Dinner was within a 3 min walk. Snorkeling... More

Perfect surfing location, incredible beach access, nice pool, comfy rooms, great owners and vibe! Restaurant has wonderful breakfast, rooms are quiet, staff is friendly and accommodating. Not a luxury hotel, but that's not what Rincon is about - this is about the beach and surrounded buy nature. OH - there's a little Yoga "shack" next door!

My stay at Casa Isleña was perfect! I booked my trip very last minute and the managers, Dario and Aileen, were more than accomadating and found me a beautiful room with a gorgeous view. The other staff who I encountered there were very friendly. Mitch, the bartender and Jack, one of their servers, helped aclomate me to the town's culture... More
