Where to stay?

I'm going with one other person to Rincon April 26th - May 1st. I'm having a hard time deciding where to stay and hopefully I can get some advice from people who have visited. I would like to stay at a hotel/resort/inn/etc on the beach. A nice quiet beach is ideal - one that is not too rough on the feet (white sand). Does anyone know of one that is on a nice beach with beach chairs provided? It would also be nice if the place had a pool too. Thanks!

FYI - I'm a 28 year old male and traveling with a 23 year old female from California. An Inn rather than a resort would be preferrable. Thanks.

HOTEL VILLA COFRESI is great place for a 1st stay. they are an older hotel but very popular. they are located right on the beach. if you choose to stay here ask for a room in the older section as rooms and balconies are bigger.if staying at an inn is more to your liking try : TRES SIRENAS INN or CASA ISLENA those are also located on a beach. try visiting www.rinconpr.com and

www.enjoypuertorico.com all 3 suugestions have pools.

good luck,

We loved the Coconut Palms Inn. We spent the whole vacation just lounging around the beach and patio area. We hadn't planned to, but it was so great there, we didn't want to leave.

They don't have a pool, but we preferred swimming in the crystal clear ocean. They have beach chairs and water toys to use. They have a hot tub in a beautiful garden setting, but we never used it, didn't want to leave the patio and beach.

Right down the beach is the Villa Cofresi, and we walked down there one day and sat in their chairs and had a drink at the bar, but what we really liked is the fact that if we wanted nightlife and a bar, we could walk there, but then we could leave and go back to the nice and peaceful Coconut Palms.

Another plus, it is in walking distance of a couple of restaurants, the supermarket, and internet cafe/coffee shop. An awesome bakery nearby where we got stuff for breakfast every morning.

When coming to Rincon I always recommend guests be very specific about their expectations as to lodging, and activities. You are coming at the very end of season, when the transition from visitors from the States are dwindling and the locals start hitting the beach again. It is also late for surf, you never know, you could get lucky if you are a west coast surfer, wanting to take advantage of our beautiful warm water and surf, this week (3/31)we have had a tremendous swell, and I remember some fun waves last April. If you are looking at small guest houses, expect privacy and quite, the cheaper they are the less ammenities, the more expensive, the price justified, furniture, pool, jacuzzi's, ocean front, maid ervice, etc, if yo want to be pampered, and need to stay wired a resort might be better for you, if you want to impress, hands down, nothing beats the Horned Dorset, just bring a book, no TV, no Cell Phones. Make a few calls, be very specific, the more honest the innkeeper you are calling, most likely the more realistic your expectations will be upon arrival. As for the sand... ous is not white, nor ave I seen any white sand on the Island other than the out Islands, but it is wonderful to wlak along, as long as you are adventurous, they are so many great beaches, and miles to walk.
