My friends and I came over to this hotel with the intent of hanging out on the beach and just having a relaxing vacation. We checked in and were given an option of staying within the hotel, or getting a room maybe 3 minute walk away from the main hotel center, on the outskirts of the property. Firstly, we chose to be in the center of the hotel because of cheaper price and the convenience of not being away from everything. They gave us a room on the outskirts despite our request and we chose not to say anything, hoping to avoid causing any kind of problem.
The room we got included a kitchenette and a fridge, no balcony. Within the kitchenette was a single plate and a couple of dusty glasses. No pan, no utensils. Whats the point of having a room like this if you arent going to supply the rest of the equipment. Were they expecting that I was coming to PR with a pan in my suitcase just in case? We never used the kitchenette. The entire hotel is also supposed to have an unlocked wi-fi available to it's guests. Where we were staying, the hotel network was not detected and when we brought this to the front desk's attention, they told us that someone was coming to check it out. No one ever came. As a quick side note - we requested more towels for the room and the front desk said the same thing - that someone will be at our room shortly to drop off the towel. Again, no one came.
The beach here was also subpar. If you're staying in rincon - Public beach and sandy beach are both better. The sand is cleaner here - i suspect due to good upkeep by hotel staff, but the actual ocean floor is rocky, and dirty. Not the Hotel's fault, of course.
There is a free continental breakfast that is offered to all hotel guests - but not included if you apparently stay at the room we stayed in. We had to beg with the hotel front desk, to let us in to partake in the continental breakfast. They told us that the room we were staying in did not include the breakfast. We said to them, that we didnt ask for that room in the first place, and secondly - we had no utensils or cookware to make our own breakfast if we wanted to. Finally, the hotel manager let us in, but really left a sour taste in my mouth. It was ridiculous.
The Pros: The bar is really pricy - 7.50 for a pina colada w/o Rum, but its lively. There are a lot of people, there is a DJ, there was karoake one of the nights. The water pressure was phenomenal. Had a great, Hot shower. The bathroom is huge. The pool looked nice, i didnt have a chance to go into the pool myself because of my schedule. The pool is open from 11-7.
Conclusion - one of the better places to stay in Rincon, for tourism, but I really didnt like the way that the hotel staff kept ignoring us and treating us like 2nd class citizens. I would not come back here.
