“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We stayed at the Pineapple Inn for three days and hated to leave. Mark and Nelson are wonderful hosts. The location is a quieter part of RIncon which we loved but close enough to everything. The beach is fabulous and it is nice to be able to go back to the inn with its swimming pool to hang out. Mark is a great resource for restaurant recommendations and places to go. Can't wait to get back there.

My friends and I stayed at the Pineapple Inn for 5 days. It was our first trip to Puerto Rico and I tend prefer higher end hotels whenever possible so I didn't know what to expect at the Inn. I was completely surprised and thoroughly impressed by the warm and genuine hospitality. Mark and Nelson made us feel right at home (truly!) and invited us to socialize with other locals which allowed us to soak in the local culture of Rincon. They were incredibly flexible when we changed our travel plans at the last minute, and more than anything, they were truly caring. The Pineapple Inn is about 10 steps from the beach. I left the Inn this morning and I alreay miss Mark and Nelson. Many thanks for making our trip so memorable!!

Stayed a week and found an excellent and warm inn that met my needs wonderfully. Spotless room and enclosed garden oasis, I spent half my time hanging out in Rincon and the other half seeing quite a bit of of south western PR. The Pineapple is steps away from a long beautiful quiet beach, western facing with great sunsets. Also located in a real PR neighborhood with locals as opposed to tourists/surfers as neighbors. Mark and Nelson are gentlemen and really care about your needs. Type of place that I would return to without hesitation. Small fridge and microwave lets you eat in if you wish, generous and good continental breakfast delivered to your room. I had car but if you can walk a mile all is within reach. Really a great value and a one of a kind place in Rincon.

Had a great 4-day stay at the Pineapple Inn recently. This was our second visit! Nelson and Mark - innkeepers - are wonderful hosts. They provided comprehensive and up-to-date information regarding restaurants, sighseeing and things to do and see in the Rincon area, as well as nearby towns. The room was comfortable, clean and with a sitting area. We enjoyed complimentary continental breakfast every morning with fresh fruits and pastries from local markets. What a wonderful treat! The inn's proximity to the beach is ideal for long walks and just plain relaxing on the beach. The pool area features tables and chairs to enjoy breakfast or cocktails "al fresco" under palm trees. I highly recommend the PI to anyone! Will come back soon! Thanks!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent!

We never had the chance to stay despite having had a reservation to stay for three nights, February 7 - 10th. Unfortunately, our son spiked a fever and we could not leave him home with Grandma. The owners of the Pineapple Inn were very understanding, and offered to arrange for alternative dates to visit at the same rate and in the same room. Nelson was a pleasure and made us feel better about having to cancel our trip and alter vacation plans.

The customer service and genuine sincerity we experienced was really special. We will visit The Pineapple Inn soon, and we look forward to experiencing all the great things Rincon has to offer.
