“Oh, the Blue Boy...can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

My husband and I returned to the Blue Boy Inn for our second visit this year the end of January. This time we brought along our best travel buddies who have always enjoyed Bermuda more than any other place. Well, they are now lovers of the Blue Boy Inn as we are. In fact, before we left we all booked a return trip for next year. The people of Rincon are genuinely kind and friendly, but staying at the Blue Boy Inn makes our vacation perfect. Marc is so caring with such a kind heart. He wants to make sure his guests are truly happy, as well as Paco, the resident cat, the turtles, birds and other creatures and flowers he tends to. The property is not right on the beach, but that is truly an advantage if you want peace, quiet, privacy, and relaxation. You can walk to one beach in about 5 minutes, and a couple of others in 10 - 15 minutes. There is also the Shipwreck Pub with good food (burgers were excellent, as well as fish tacos). There is also another restaurant and pub (open air) , which is also a short walk down the road - a great place to watch the sunset. We also love the Tamboo, which is a short drive away. The Blue Boy Inn is just a special place. We start to relax from our normally stressful lives back home as soon as we see Marc waiting to welcome us. Sarah is warm and friendly, and her smile just lights up the Blue Boy even more. Jonathan is a great cook for the morning breakfast, and genuinely nice as well. I could go on and on about staying here, but you just have to experience it for yourself. It is not a modern hotel with room service and a fitness center, but with separate entrances and your own patio, it is not like your typical bed and breakfast. Your fitness center is a swim in the pool, a walk to the beach, and whatever you make of the beautiful outdoors. Marc even has snorkeling equipment for you to use, as well as some beach chairs and umbrellas. If you want to unwind, lay back, and just take one day at a time (put the watch away), this is the place for you.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room by the pool with a kitchenette on our first trip, but never used the kitchen - w...

I was looking for a place to relax and collect my thoughts during a difficult period of my life. This was what I needed. The Blue Boy Inn is a wonderful place to stay in Rincon. It is within easy walking distance to the beach, a few restaurants, and just a short drive to town if you need anything. Marc and Sara are great! Tres Palmas beach is right there and Steps beach is a 10 minute walk away. I will absolutely return there again!

The people of Rincon are kind, generous, respectful and gentle - unless they are driving!! ha The food is plentiful, delicious, and so inexpensive. The beaches are divided into swimming, surfing and snorkelling - but so close together you can easily walk from one to the other. No tourist traps to be seen! BBI is really the best place and location you can get, an absolutely perfect combination of hospitality and knowledge! I would suggest to take your GPS to make navigation a breeze, and to get out and explore all of what Puerto Rico has to offer - it was all very easy, very safe, and very scenic! Our Spanish is non existent yet, we were never in need. Someone was always able to lend a hand, or help us out. Our best help came from all the people, at the Blue Boy Inn. Do not hesitate if you are wondering if this is the perfect spot or not - it is!

Room Tip: All rooms are equal and quite perfectly located. There is not really one room that is better than t...

We had passed the Blue Boy on our first trip to Rincon when heading to Shipwreck restaurant. On our second trip we stayed their for two nights and had a great experience. Marc is an incredibly warm, inviting, and conscientious owner. He really cares about your stay and takes a lot of pride in his work, as he should. The pool area has everything you could want! The fire pit, grill, in-pool bar stools, gardens, and two community areas...ugh take me back.
The breakfasts are good! Lots of healthy options and very friendly service. Its location is the only reason I am not giving it an "excellent". While I am on a beach vacation, I love to have a direct view of the ocean. However, it is nearby to a really great restaurant La Copa Llena, so thats a plus. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend a stay at the Blue Boy!

My husband & I immediately loved the Blue Boy Inn the second we arrived! The place is amazing from the rooms to the breakfast (great omelets--Jonathan is awesome!) to the gardens. The pool area is spectacular. You can tell so much care & love is put into this place. Marc is such a great owner! The only thing that we did not like was the fact that we only booked 3 nights!! Next time we know to stay longer. We loved the location. Less than a minute walk to the beach & 3 different bar/restaurants. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Why the Blue Boy Inn deserves an excellent review? Simply because is a place made with a great care to the particulars and to all the needs that a tourist can have! The structure is amazing, with nice spots, a very nice swimming pool, garden, and it is almost impossible that you'll need something that is not there waiting for you... Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast delicious, and the location just perfect, at a walking distance both from the Rincon beach with calm sea and good spots for snorkeling and a beach with high waves which is perfect if you love surfing and make nice pictures. Just two small drawbacks. First, we had a problem with our reservation and there was no way to convince the owner (which is a very nice person) that it wasn't our fault....by the way, at the end we found the way to fix it. Second, there is a nice cat living in the B&B, which spend his time on the various chairs and couches in the structure. Consider that if you have problems or allergy to cat's hair...

My friends and I are still swooning after our week at Blue Boy. Marc does an outstanding job to make you feel at home. We arrived on Christmas Day and Marc invited us into his part of the house and gave us some wine, since he did not think any stores would be open. Throughout our trip, he recommended restaurants, "off-the beaten-path beaches", shopping, sights to see and things to do around town. He thinks of every amenity possible, honor bar, ice, beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkelling gear and fresh beach towels. We were so impressed, we already booked for next year. Sarah and Jonathan help keep the place running smoothly. Jonathan cooks a dynamite breakfast and Sarah is always available to provide a recommendation or just easy conversation about her native land. Coffee was ready by 6:30a, every morning and the grounds with the added touches of Marc's pets, make this all memorable. Congratulations, Marc & Sarah. I hope you enjoy continued success in 2013. See you next year! - The Brooklyn Girls

Room Tip: The pool studios have a small kitchenette, but each room has it's own charm.
