Las Palmas Inn is a heavenly place for the traveler in search for a quiet tranquil setting away from the madnes of a busy city life. My brother and I spent four nights (May 28 -June 1,2012)
We shared a corner room with two double beds with just the necessary,bare essentials .i.e.cable TV,clock radio,microwave oven,fridge,coffee maker and some utensils...a large armoire and table with two chairs...good a/c and a bathroom with shower with good pressure and hot water.The balcony has tables and chairs for guests to lounge around:the swimming pool is simple but well maintained by a living grounds keeper (Julio) who is a Jack of all trade kind of guy,he is a courteous,pleasant person readily available to offer any sort of information one needs regarding Rincon and its exquisite ocean life...Julio is a real asset to this facility and Dario and Eileen (the owners) are very fortunate to have him in the staff!
Someone wrote his experience regarding lost of power during his visit...well...we had a day when the power was interrupted because the Power Authority was repairing lines in the vecinity,not that we were not prepared to handle this sort of inconvenience (I have emergency kits in my vehicle...I am a local from Caguas!) but we called Casa Islena Inn which is theis main property just a two minute drive from Las Palmas,and Dario immediately offered us a room there for the night which we gladly and redily accepted ( the power was restored within the hour by the way!) That presented and exellent opportunity for me to 'check out' the Inn...the rooma wit two double beds are twice the size(vs Palmas) nicer batheroom,TV and armoire,pool,exellent fresh continental breakfast and rigth by the beach! and again Julio is the "Jack" here as well...the next day we return to Palmas(we really enjoy the solitude it offers!)
These Inns are just minutes away from the (now) popular beach called Steps or Escalones which is heaven for the shy underwater thrill seeker...with just a masks,snorkle and my sandals(!?) I caught a glance at a beautiful array of colorful fish,that included a small barracuda and to my most memorable surprise...a sea turtle!
I highly recomend both of these Inns,but bear in mind Palmas is for those wanting a quiet peaceful RR !!!
Just a very short drive away you'll find a bakery and a small grocery store.
And if you want inexpensive local meal you must drive 10 minutes to 'town' and tri THE BROTER right avross from the town Plaza ana church...they offer one special daily which is what we locals eat (rice,beans,plaintain,pork,beef,etc...) this,being that is the only special is fresly prepared daily and served with the salad of your choise...for just $4.50 (unbelievable!) of course the make breakfast and a variety of sandwiches as well as pizza...they open fron 6:00am to midnight daily...do not deliver and is cash only..but well worth it!!
