Beside The Pointe Inn
Ranked #11 of 19 Rincon B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 7, 2013

My boyfriend and I moved from a more resort-like hotel to this one halfway through our trip in Rincon. What a great spot - perfect for surfers. The hotel is literally on Sandy Beach...If you're a beginning surfer, I'd argue that it's the best beach for you. One of the only spots with sand instead of reef bottom...also, the waves were head-high but manageable. Amazing rooftop deck, happening bar, and although we were warned about noise from the bar, in room 3, we didn't hear anything over the white noise of the AC. Room was definitely small, but for surfers, you can't beat walking straight from your room to the surf or the beer specials offered in the open-air bar attached to the hotel. LOVED THIS PLACE. Also, if your Spanish struggles, this is a great spot as a lot of the staff grew up in the U.S., but at the same time, are connected enough to the community to draw lots of locals to party on the weekend. It was $100/night.

Room Tip: Room 3 was small and frankly, a bit claustrophobic...BUT, it's the furthest away from bar noise...

we spent 1 night in room 7, we paid more than 170$ for this old room, old furniture, horrible color on the walls, even the hotel is dark braun, looks old and sad. One night was just enough. I would never recommend this hotel to my friends.
The beach is very nice the area as well.
If there is a live band in the restaurant forget to sleep before 12:00 am. In the morning nobody in the restaurant we had to drive to find something for breakfast.

We were only here for one night, but the next time I go back to PR, it will definitely be longer - Rincon seems like a fun place and staying within a few steps to your room is a great idea when it's the Tamboo Tavern. The room was clean, comfortable, and the cable and AC worked very well. We also found it funny that earplugs were included - since we stayed on a Tuesday night, it wasn't a big issue, but it was very thoughtful of the owners to include them, because I can see how it might get very loud. The food at the restaurant was delicious, the view from the deck can't be beat, and it was a great place to soak up the vibe, relax with a rum drink in hand, and watch the sun set over the ocean. The price was good, as well. The only thing I have against Beside the Pointe is we had a tough time finding it - I think the website should include directions, like many of the other lodging websites.

My husband and I stood at Beside the Pointe Inn and could not have been more pleased with our experience. We were there a total of ten days and by the end of our trip, felt like it was a second home. The owners were extremely warm and kind to us, even inviting us over their house for dinner. The rooms were clean and the maid service was spectacular. The noise was not a problem for us either. After reading about the noise in the prior postings we were full expecting at least one loud night, but even during the late night parties, we slept comfortably. The service staff at The Tamboo Restaurant downstairs were amazing as well. After our first day or two, everyone called us by first name and we shared a lot of good conversation & laughs. The food was out of this world good, we ordered mostly from the daily specials and not once were we disappointed. We absolutely plan on going back in the near future!!! Thanks for everything Mauri & Javier!!!

Room Tip: We stood in Room 6, the largest of the rooms. It was perfect for the two of us, but we could have co...

Staff was kind and helpful. Rooms might be small but comfortable and very clean; mini fridge was very welcomed but missed a microwave. TV/Cable and A/C worked excellently. I stayed in the middle of the spring break so crowded nights were expected. DJ Praxis knows how to mix but he only play dance music all night long (house, dubstep, techno) with no chance for other genres and no bar breaks. Food is excellent and beer is always cold, but missed breakfast options. Beach view is one of the best in Rincón; difficult to beat this. Parking for guests is limited but available. Bar is great but small, quite difficult to reach during night activities (even with two very friendly bartenders). During the day don't expect other music genre than jamaican reggae in the background sound system. We stayed 4 days and never listened Latin music besides spanish lyrics from Cultura Profetica (Reggae) and Juanes (Soft Rock). Since we were expecting the spring break crowd (we were part of it after all!) and some noise late night in our room (ear plugs are provided), it was a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are quieter at night.

After reading the reviews, my husband and I were worried about noise levels. However, we didn't hear any noise from the bar in our room (room #3). We didn't need the earplugs supplied by the inn, although it was a nice touch.

The location is incredible, and a great value for being beachfront. Sandy Beach is great for surfing, and there is a terrific outdoor yoga studio (Aloha Yoga) just a five minute walk down the beach.

The deck was fully operational, and a lovely spot to check out the ocean.

Breakfast is not available at their restaurant, but we went right across the street to Rock Bottom, and had delicious veggie omelettes.
