“Wonderful Escape!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Wonderful Escape!

Don’t want to repeat what so many have already provided with their positive experiences staying at the Lemontree Cottages in Rincon but did want to quickly highlight a few items that we experienced when we stayed there:

1. The hosts and owners are wonderful and live on the property.
2. The location of the cottages is very secluded.
3. The one bedroom cottage suite is very spacious.
4. The cottages are literally on the beach, Nice!
5. The crashing of the waves at night is very romantic.
6. The Coqui sounds at night is amazing.
7. The cars rushing by in the front of the cottages, not cool at all.

Even with item #7 above, we still gave the Lemontree Cottages an excellent rating because of items 1 through 6.

If you want fancy- not for you... If you want opulent- not for you... but if you like the sounds of the surf to sleep at night, and sunsets from your deck, and a tropical setting- book the Lemontree Cottages! You might even find your new best friend, Irene, for your stay. The suites are up-to-date, clean, and each has a view. Total R & R.

Room Tip: All the suites seemed similar, re-done- all fine. We did stick our heads in "The Papaya" o...

We just returned from a wonderful stay at this great Inn. The one bedroom apartment with a large porch on the water was everything advertised and more. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, fully equipped even down to salt and pepper, and knowledgeable, friendly hosts. You truly feel at one with nature with the ocean lapping outside the door, the birds singing away, beautiful sunrises and sunsets and long walks on the beach. We came for 3 days and stayed 5! Gracious hosts Bella Jane and Todd made us feel like old friends and as such we look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: All units face the ocean.

My husband and I LOVED this sweet place. It was just what it said it was and just what we needed. Swimming in the ocean right outside our balcony was right up my alley.(bring beach shoes). Jane is a very good hostess and we enjoyed her appreciation of the traditions of the island that she shared in conversations with us. By the by, In exploring Rincon from our accomodations at the Lemontree,we experienced our favorite resturant in PR(The Lazy Parrot).

We have been to Lemon Tree several times and have had extremely pleasant experiences; Bella Jane and Todd are very accomodating. Each unit is extremely well furnished with many extra features including simple things such as coffee, sugar, and condiments in the kitchen. It is immaculate with many extras such as "noodles" to swim with and plenty of towels. It is so easy to move in there because of their help and advice re places to eat and things to do. It is really a low-key, wonderful spot. Go there and enjoy some r and r, have a chat with Bella Jane and Todd (you will not be disappointed), watch the surfers, take a grand swim, and relax. It is truly a place to return to -- quiet, more than pleasant, and oh so peaceful!!!

Room Tip: Book any unit available.

This has been our tenth straight year staying at Lemontree. A major factor that keeps us coming back is that we love the “feel” of the sea. It is only ten feet away and we can hear it, see it and sense the breeze from it every minute of every day. As Lemontree faces south, we love the sunrise and the sunset and the glimmer of the sea while watching the pelicans diving for fish. Our windows are always open. A unique feature that makes Lemontree work is ‘The Wall’. {An explanation: Years ago Puerto Rico was a sugar island. In order to export the sugar the farmers built a train track which circumnavigated the island so the sugar could be rolled down from the hills and on to the trains which took it to port. There were places where the hills came so close to the sea that there was a need to build a platform for the tracks. The platform was a ten foot high, thirty foot deep ‘wall’. Lemontree sits on such a wall, hence its close proximity to the sea which, when it is high, rolls to the wall creating a unique experience for lucky us.} For sure our space is great and the features and amenities are as well. We enjoy using the outdoor grill. Bella Jane has the management end down cold. These folks know what they are doing and how to help everyone feel welcome. We are happy to help spread the word.

Comfortable and well-equipped, this inn is in serious need of an artistic hand. Dark wood ceilings and cabinets and brown upholstery result a gloomy environment, and the 1950s lighting fixtures do nothing to dispel the gloom. The view of the water from each room's deck is pleasant, but there is basically no beach; at high tide, the water covers the sand. The buildings (there are 2, each containing several units) are ~5' from a narrow but very busy and noisy road. The inn itself is not within walking distance of anything else, unlike inns at the northern end of Rincon, in the Sandy Beach area. However, beautification of the rooms would go a long way toward mitigating the drawbacks.

LemonTree, Owner at LemonTree Oceanfront Cottages, responded to this review, February 29, 2012
This review reminds us of the adage, “…you can’t please all of the people all of the time...” Hand hewed cabinetry and vaulted, gleaming wooden ceilings say, “tropical” to some and yet “gloomy” to others. Art glass lighting fixtures, remind some of the 1950’s and yet others see them as contributing to a fun island vibe. Upholstery in golds and rusts and muted rainbow curtains is tropical to some and simply brown to others. Being directly on the ocean and waking to the sound of the waves brings a smile glee to the faces of some and yet to others this is merely ‘pleasant.’

The beaches in Rincon are “natural” beaches. When you live by the sea you come to accept the beach that nature presents to you each day. To this reviewer, our Puerto Rican natural beach did not meet expectations in terms of quantity of sand or lack of coconuts and driftwood and yet, to others this stretch of coastline is a gift to be enjoyed and savored. Walking along the water’s edge and collecting sea glass, shells and watching the pelicans dive for fish can be a lifetime memory in the making. Despite the perceived lack of sand, some or all of this party of guests were down on the beach everyday they were here at the Lemontree.

These guests were here during the Christmas, New Years and Three Kings holiday time. During that period, local politicians (2012 is an election year) and families, sponsor holiday parades. We had no less than six holiday parades and several family parandas (musical parades with traditional Puerto Rican Christmas music, sort of like caroling). These highs spirited events do create “noise” and yet if one looks at them as a celebration of cultural and religious beliefs, they are joyful and fun!
