“Great for Party Surfers...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Staff was kind and helpful. Rooms might be small but comfortable and very clean; mini fridge was very welcomed but missed a microwave. TV/Cable and A/C worked excellently. I stayed in the middle of the spring break so crowded nights were expected. DJ Praxis knows how to mix but he only play dance music all night long (house, dubstep, techno) with no chance for other genres and no bar breaks. Food is excellent and beer is always cold, but missed breakfast options. Beach view is one of the best in Rincón; difficult to beat this. Parking for guests is limited but available. Bar is great but small, quite difficult to reach during night activities (even with two very friendly bartenders). During the day don't expect other music genre than jamaican reggae in the background sound system. We stayed 4 days and never listened Latin music besides spanish lyrics from Cultura Profetica (Reggae) and Juanes (Soft Rock). Since we were expecting the spring break crowd (we were part of it after all!) and some noise late night in our room (ear plugs are provided), it was a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are quieter at night.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

After reading the reviews, my husband and I were worried about noise levels. However, we didn't hear any noise from the bar in our room (room #3). We didn't need the earplugs supplied by the inn, although it was a nice touch.

The location is incredible, and a great value for being beachfront. Sandy Beach is great for surfing, and there is a terrific outdoor yoga studio (Aloha Yoga) just a five minute walk down the beach.

The deck was fully operational, and a lovely spot to check out the ocean.

Breakfast is not available at their restaurant, but we went right across the street to Rock Bottom, and had delicious veggie omelettes.

Make sure you enjoy their beachfront Restaurant and Bar all night long... Then make sure you made reservations to actually sleep and rest in another hotel or guesthouse. You will NOT find it here.

Adding insult to injury, we arrived to find they were remodelling the deck and direct beach access was cut off. They didn't let us know about this when we booked, of course, which was days before we got there (and the construction was already at hand).

Plenty of better places in RInc'on, and better priced, at that.

We stayed one night while driving around the island. We were in a first floor room near the kitchen door. Room was clean, furnishings adequate. Beautiful view of surf from the bar. The bar is undergoing renovation so there was no live music and pretty much shut down around 11 pm. Slept OK after that though noisy A/C. Food in the bar is very good. The best thing was not needing to negotiate winding roads in the dark after having a few drinks in the bar and dinner- we just popped into our room. If you are staying longer would go for one of the upstairs rooms.

Located ON the beach this is the perfect spot for surfers and nightlife! Owners are frequently on site to oversee the hotel and restaurant. Weekends d Jo's play so it can be loud! If you want a quiter room ask for room 0 or room 1. These rooms don't have a view and are smaller but quit and clean.

Clean rooms, next to the ocean, great bar, friendly staff. They do have live music a couple of nights a week until 2 am, so you if you want peace, this place may not be for you. If you want to party, this is paradise. The food at the restaurant is also pretty good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights, the room was simple, but had all we needed, (a bed, a toilet and a fridge). The place was right on the water but the current was so strong those days we couldn't go in. We came to Rincon for surf, so we went further south but it was still only a 10 minute car ride. The bar at the place was fun. We had cheap drinks and there was a dj there on friday and saturday nights but from our room we couldn't even hear the noise. The downsides were we couldn't get a hot shower and there was no pool.
