“Perfect getaway!!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This was the perfect getaway!! Coming from a cold city, this was exactly what we needed.

The guesthouse was great with a breathtaking view (the sunset is just beautiful)!! The pictures on the websites doesn't do any justice. The rooms were nice and spacious. We got a private bedroom with a private bathroom and it was perfect.

Roger was wonderful. He was super friendly, fun, easy going, and passionate about surfing. He knew all the great local restaurants/shops/grocery stores. Everyday he will check the waves and make sure we went to a beach that we were able to learn efficiently safely and have a blast! Our instructor Lance was amazing as well. He was fun, patient, and knowledgeable!!

Our days would start with a nice breakfast on the balcony overlooking the beautiful nature of Rincon. Then roger will let us know when and where we will be taking our lessons. After a fun and exciting morning surfing, we would go to lunch at a spot that Roger recommended, come back to the villa to recharge (lay on the hammock, have a nap, go to the pool, do some yoga, watch the sunset, etc) and then again go out for dinner/drinks. Then we would come back to the villa and just chill out again on the balcony, hang out wit our fellow guests, have a few drinks, and go to bed.

Now does that not sound like an amazing day??
I strongly recommend everybody to come here!! We had so much fun, learned something new, and met wonderful people. What more can you ask for?

Spent 3 great days with Roger at Surf787. It is a beautiful guest house and a perfect place for anyone looking to get away from the "resorts" and enjoy the quiet, sea breeze of Rincon. The house has an unobstructed view of the ocean and the sunsets are worth the trip alone. It was perfect for me as a solo traveler, but I would also definitely come with a small group/family. Roger is a great host and even took us out for a stand up paddle board sunset tour on our last night. Don't forget to take him on in table tennis... but watch out for his forehand! Looking forward to a return trip soon...

What a wonderful stay!! A friend and I were only at the villa for 2 nights in the beginning of April, but we have already had talks with Roger about coming back for longer. The villa is so quant and the views and peacefulness at the hilltop are unbelievable. The rooms are simple, but elegant, and Roger even throws in some movies in case you are wiped out from a day of surfing ;-) He greeted us each night we came "home" to make sure we had a good night out on the town…cracked some jokes and told us he would have breakfast ready for us on the pool patio in the morning. He was so accommodating… took us surfing the day we arrived, gave us directions and suggestions for our other PR travels, and cooked us the most wonderful array of homemade eats. Surf 787 is truly a home away from home, with the constant feeling of security! This is THE place to stay in Rincon!! Miss it already.

Room Tip: Queen bed rooms appeared to have pillow top :-) … suggestion to get those on the single beds at well...

We just came back from a six night stay in Rincon, Puerto Rico where we stayed at Surf 787. I had a feeling it would be a good surf hotel, but it turned out to be an awesome vacation experience.

The pictures of the villa are good, but the place is much nicer and more robust than the pictures indicate. The villa boasts a nice décor, is very clean and spacious . We stayed upstairs in two adjoining rooms which share a common bath room which worked out well. We loved spending time on the deck eating breakfast and watching beautiful sunsets while having a great time with other guests or just chilling in the hammock. My kids loved the swimming pool and game room, with its pool, ping pong and darts. My wife really enjoyed the serenity of the yoga studio.

Roger Wagner, aka "The Brazilian Kahuna" is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and made us feel at home. His suggestions as to where to eat, where to surf, things to do around the Rincon area very much helped make our vacation a super success. His team of surf instructors were great with our young girls and had them catching waves during their first lesson. Our surf instructor Nico was really great with our kids and made surfing a lot of fun.

We had such a good time that it was difficult to leave surf 787. But we will back next year for sure!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are awesome.

787 is the spot.
If you want to do a surftrip with perfect waves, hot water and pure surfing culture, go to Rincon at Puerto Rico and stay in the right spot.

The owner of the Guest House, Roger, a real soul surfer. He knows everything you want to know.

Roger lived 12 years in California and now he's based at Puerto Rico for the last 7 years. Surf and snowboard mentor.

Just call your broous and get things done.

Ps: don't forget to try the banana muffing during the breakfast.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. Just look at your budget and get the one you like most. They're all ama...

I have been to quit a few surf camps and I can't image a better setup for surfing. Roger really took care of us. He was knowledgeable and very helpful. The rooms were clean and the house was very upscale. The house is private and quite. Exactly what we were looking for. It is close to town and easy to get to restaurants and grocery stores. The breakfast was all natural and very good. There are lots of good quality rental boards to choose from. From beginner to expert this is a great trip for all types of surfers. We like the proximity to Aguadilla airport.
