My husband and I just returned from a wonderful seven night stay at the Blue Boy Inn. We had originally only planned on staying 5 nights but after spending 2 days at BBI, we decided we didn't want to go anywhere else. We cancelled our plans to go to San Juan and stayed at BBI for the remainder of our trip. From the moment we arrived Marc made us feel like we were a guest in his home.
Grounds: The property is a miniature tropical oasis in Rincon. Beautiful, well maintained plants and fruit trees are spread across the property. There are also animals that make their home at BBI: Baby Cayman crocodiles, pheasant, hawk, cockatiels, turtles and two well loved cats. In additional to the plans and animals, the rest of the grounds are well taken care of and there are many extras that you won't find at other properties in the area. There's a beautiful pool, hot tub, bbq grills, and a fire pit that add to the experience at BBI.
Breakfast: The breakfast at BBI is top notch! Marc does an outstanding job preparing breakfast each morning. The french toast, crepes and breakfast potatoes are to die for! I wish I could have Marc's breakfast every morning. In addition to the hot breakfast items, there was a wide variety of yogurt, cereal, fresh fruit, and other common breakfast items.
Room: We stayed in Room 4 which was right next to the lobby of the inn. The room was a great size and we had plenty of room. the only thing I would do differently on our next visit would be to pick on of the more secluded rooms not on the main walkway. We were never disturbed, but we did have to make sure to close the curtains :)
Hosts: Marc and Sara were excellent hosts. They provided wonderful recommendations on activities and restaurants in the area. It's clear that they both genuinely love their jobs and want people to love PR as much as they do.
Beaches: We walked to Steps beach and to the beach by the Lighthouse several times. It was a short walk, but you can also drive if you don't want to carry all of your beach gear. We actually didn't go to the beach that was so close to the inn, so I can't provide a review on that beach.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at BBI. We hope to make a visit again soon! I can see that this could be place that we return to year after year.
