Lazy Parrot Inn
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Rincon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The entrance is not so appealing as the rest of the structure. It is a real paradise the landscape behind it. I went here for my honeymoon, I found the privacy, calmness and relaxation that I needed. The beds were really comfortable and the rooms were clean.
The ambience were really peaceful with a tropical like theme.

But there are certain details I didn't liked, such as there was no one (any employee) around, even in the reception when we arrived. We were lost since no one didn't drive us to the check-in place. For a moment I thought the hotel was truly deserted.
Then afterwards we finally found a nice lady downstairs right next to the pool.
When we walked in the room, it was really hot, the a/c temperature was too high and took a lot of time to cool.
The continental breakfast was disappointing, it had just some sort of pastries and bread, yogurt and bananas, juice and coffee. Everything was cold (or temperature) food, nothing hot except the coffee. We tried to warm up some waffles, but the toaster was a mess and we never got them hot.
They were supposed to have a restaurant, but it was always empty and even without a shadow of any waiter or employee.
Also the location of the inn was so far away from the fun places, we had to travel a lot to get something to do 30 min to 1 hr. The beaches around weren't good either.

If you just want a place to sleep and have a relaxing time without going anywhere, then this is the place for you.

Although this guest had great things to say about our hotel they seemed to miss our effort to give all our guests the information they need to enjoy all our hotel and town has to offer. If they had read their confirmation letter or took notice of the signage throughout the hotel they easily would have found our office poolside. Remember, we aren't your cookie cutter hotel.

The Lazy Parrot has 2 restaurants. Our upstairs mezzanine restaurant ,LPR is only open during our high season from Thanksgiving to the Rincon Film Festival in April. Our poolside restaurant, Rum Shack is open year-round. Signage which states that is located at the entrance and also posted on our website, as well as in our Room Information Binders.

The Lazy Parrot is a big supporter of GREEN initiatives, reuse, recycle, etc. Turning up AC thermostats when rooms aren't in use is another way we conserve. As well as using solar heated water, eliminating a heated jacuzzi when it is already 90 degrees outside and redirecting our cooling drains to our fabulous gardens, are just a few ways we give back to planet Earth.

Our breakfast is CONTINENTAL (also noted on our website), which consists of fruit, yogurt, cereal, pastries, breads, oatmeal, juice, coffee and milk. This is a very elaborate continental breakfast. Most continental breakfasts consist of coffee and donuts. If you are looking for a fully cooked breakfast there are several places we recommend, however they aren't free.

The beaches in Rincon are some of the most beautiful on the island and if you are looking for city life and things to do other than enjoying things of nature Rincon probably isn't the place for you.

If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil place just 1 mile from several beaches, we are probably the perfect spot for you.

The outside is not attractive but things change when you get to the room,The air conditioner was on when we oppened the door and it was so comfortable, the beds are great, the pillows are just right, and is very clean. I use a cane and it was dificult for me to go up some stairs, I have to say that was my only problem in the Parrot. The food at the Rum shack is delicious and affordable. The continental breakfast was ready before 8 am and I was amazed by the organization, The staff is always working, but theres no one in the office after five. The pool is great and I saw a worker clening, doing test and taking notes of the results, a sanitary regulation a never saw a hotel fulfill completely. The room in front of the pool is plus, ask for it if you can. Of course we are going back.

Room Tip: 2nd floor in front of the pool

I thank you for your honest review and so sorry you did not feel the entrance was attractive. Our biggest challenge over the years was taking a private home and converting it into a hotel. To add to that, for many years it was the only entrance, so we always had to weigh inconvenience to guests in determining whether we should change it. Instead, we decided to make the other areas our showcase, like our rooms, gardens and restaurant, as well as training our staff to make you feel at home.

So I guess I will say, our grass is greener on the other side and never judge a book by its cover. The Lazy Parrot is no cookie cutter hotel but offers all the comforters of one.

This small, moderately priced hotel offered a wonderful experience for my family. It was simple and laid back with a magnificent stafff who answered our many questions. Our room was very clean and had its own small private patio with a hammock. They have a mini golf with 18 holes and was set against the lush mountains. A quaint gift shop offers many options of local crafts- even board games you can sign out. We had wonderful meals at their restaurant- the Rum Shack - as well as quenching drinks! They offer free wi-fi but with so much to do in Rincon you may want to make better use of your time on the beach which is just a few minutes away by car. There is a kidney shaped pool as well with a small waterfall and shower facilities for when you come back from the beach to rinse off all that sand! They offer parking but it is a bit tricky to get across the street with speedy drivers. There are also small businesses adjacent to the hotel for some nice treats. It was a place we would definately return to!

We enjoyed our stay at the Lazy Parrot. Our 3rd floor pool-side room was large, comfortable and had a great view. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. We enjoyed visiting with other guests at the Rum Shack and at the free continental breakfast in the morning. We were pleased with both the breakfast selection and the meals we ate at the Rum Shack. There are a lot of stairs, but we knew that before we went. We did use the side entrance by the Rum Shack when we were taking our luggage to and from our room (we aren't so young anymore either- 35+ years of marriage). All of the staff were friendly, helpful and gave good advice as to where to go and how to get there.

While we liked the rooms, staff, view, location, and our stay, I feel I must SHOUT a warning. The most difficult part was getting our luggage to our room. There is no elevator of any kind. It takes 50- count'em-50 stairs to get from the street to the pool level. Then, it takes another 30 up to the 3rd floor pool view rooms. As we are not so young anymore (coming up on our 35th anniversary) we would have planned a less rigorous hotel stay. There is another option but it was also difficult to traverse in either car or on foot. There is a side entrance down a hill of a horrendous piece of road that the municipality has not had the courtesy to replace in 25 years! As a business person myself, I would recommend that the owners take care of it themselves. It is obviously not getting done any other way. No offense, dear friends and Parrot Lady. It is just what we would do to protect our customers in that situation.
That said, our view was magnificent and we had a good time. The staff was friendly and helpful. We felt safe and in a good location if you don't mind driving everywhere.

Most of our reviews comment on our stairs. It is a fact, we have a lot of them and it is stated everywhere on Trip Advisor, as well as our website. So this information shouldn't shock anyone when they arrive. There are closer places to park to avoid the majority and rooms which can be accessed by ramp if this is a problem. You just can't have a poolside room and no stairs....it doesn't work that way here.

We always love to hear our guest suggestions to make the Lazy Parrot better and truthfully if I had the money to re-pave the road, I would.....maybe even take some of those steps out in the process. In the meantime, I will keep calling the city and will gladly accept any road donations!

Remember you are in Puerto Rico, a tropical island paradise which neither cares about how many potholes there are or whether there are elevators or not! Now if we would run out of RUM...that might be a problem!

We recently stayed at the Lazy Parrot and after reading some of the reviews before we went, we did not have very high expectations. We were pleasantly surprised on our recent stay. The accommodations were clean and relaxing. We met the staff (Steve the owner was very gracious) and several others were most helpful and provided us a much needed relaxing time. The food and drinks were very good! We would stay there again, since it is a great hangout out even for locals. If you are looking for a lay back, island-type place to get away, this is it. It does seem like a tropical paradise and very secluded in the set-up.

Room Tip: Pick the second or third floor overlooking the pool. .

Great time at the Parrot!!! Very relaxed atmosphere and everyone there was incredibly nice and helpful. Our poolside room was big, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed hanging out at the pool and the Rum Shack bar right next to the pool. The folks there gave us great advice on getting around town to beaches, sites and restaurants. The food at the Parrot is really good too! Rincon is beautiful and friendly, it felt like we met everyone in town. I plan on going back in the near futur and I will definitely stay at the Parrot again.

Room Tip: Get a Poolside room.
