We just returned from a trip to Rincon for my friends' wedding and the group of six of us stayed in Villa 3 Upper for four nights...and it was absolutely perfect!
The apartment has stunning views, is beautifully furnished and decorated, and had more than enough space for our group. The private outdoor space for Villa 3 Upper far exceeded my expectations and the guys in my group needed to be dragged off of the shared roofdeck every evening. The pool isn't huge, but you're on the beach...so in my mind, the beautiful pool and hot tub is just icing on the warm sand cake. After traveling for the six days prior to arriving in Rincon, the washer and dryer were a huge bonus as well.
I fully appreciate what other people had said about the tides taking away most of the sandy space directly in front of the villa, but you can walk three minutes down the beach to get a wider sandy area. We walked up the beach a few times to get to the slightly busier area near the hotels, but I am beyond happy we chose to stay where we did. It was easy to get into the center of town and I appreciated having just the noise of the waves and roosters each morning. And I absolutely loved the beds.
We only had one small hitch when we tried microwaving bacon (my friend Ryan's first mistake) while the dishwasher was running, but got an immediate answer at the office where we were directed to the fuse box.
As for any concerns around safety, I didn't feel unsafe for a minute and it takes half a second to lock the doors every time you leave the house. No crimes of opportunity for this group! I would recommend Sunset Paradise Villas to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful, clean, nicely located place in Rincon.
