Blue Boy Inn
Ranked #1 of 19 Rincon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 21, 2011

The owner of Blue Boy Inn, Marc, eats, breathes and lives to make this place a beautiful, peaceful and very comfortable place to stay. His assistant, Sara, is equally as friendly, warm and inviting to make your stay unforgettable. The grounds are lush with fruit bearing trees, vibrant flowers and greenery. Beautiful birds, three turtles, bright orange fish, curious lizards, singing frogs and Paco, the lovey dovey cat, round out the gorgeous surroundings. The rooms are extremely clean and classically modern without being pretentious. The pools and hot tub were perfect to take a dip in between reading my book poolside. Breakfast offers fresh fruit from the backyard, crepes, french toast, home fries with sausage, locally made bread, eggs and assorted cheeses and plenty of very good coffee. Bottled water is provided daily in your room but there is also a water cooler in the kitchen. There are beach chairs, snorkeling gear, beach umbrellas, beach towels, books, a computer with internet access, magazines, games, blow dryer, band aids, and other miscellaneous items for use. We were there over Valentine's Day and there were red roses, chocolates and a stuffed animal left for us in our room when we returned from the beach. At night, Marc hosted a beautiful evening of live music from two local musicians with a spread of delicious h'ordeuvres, wine and champagne. The location of Blue Boy can't be beat either. Withing walking distance are: the best snorkeling in the area at Tres Palmas marine preserve (my husband and I saw puffer fish, schools of squid and a barracuda among many other things), Shipwreck restaurant next door (try the great jalepeno poppers!), a great ice cream/cheesecake shop that we went to every night, horseback riding next door and Taino Divers next door. Within very close driving distance are: 2 grocery stores, a great surfing beach and instructors, the lighthouse where you can see locals doing yoga, Brazilian dance or watch the experienced surfers at Domes beach. Rincon is a great place to vacation no matter what, but staying at the Blue Boy Inn made our experience the best it could be. We are booking a stay here again same time, next year. Can't wait!

We stayed at the Blue Boy Inn for five days and will return. The experience from start to finish was outstanding. The Inn is a botanical garden with many exotic plants, trees and flowers. It has a wall around it and it feels like a a private world while sitting at the pool or relaxing in front of our room. The breakfast was always excellent. Be sure to have the French toast. We got the recipe, but it is not the same not being in Rincon. We highly recommend the Blue Boy.

What a wonderful and serene place. From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. The environment the sunrises and sunsets are indescribable. Once you enter the Blue Boy Inn, you are transported into another world. It is quite beautiful and peaceful. Marc, Sara and Paco were wonderful hosts. You will definitely see us again.

Blue Boy is a wonderful oasis. A great place to relax and read a book by the beautiful pool! We truly enjoyed our three nights at this lovely establishment. It is a half block from the ocean and walking distance to a couple of restaurants. We would return in a heartbeat!

We loved staying at the Blue Boy Inn. We had never been to Puerto Rico and found BBI on Trip Advisor. Marc emailed us several times before we came including websites of activities to do in the area once we arrived. We pulled into the parking lot and he was standing outside to greet us, called us by name, and upgraded our room! The Blue Boy Inn is so beautiful and within a minute walk of beautiful beaches, snorkeling, sunsets, and relaxation. The grounds at the Inn are lovely and well maintained. Everything was very clean. Marc had everything we needed for a day at the beach, beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear, umbrellas...all for the guests to use. Hope we can go back very soon! We flew into San Juan and drove to Rincon, about a 2 1/2 hour drive. It was fun to explore the island!

I had a wonderful vacation in Rincon at the beautiful Blue Boy Inn! Marc is a friendly and efficient host and he makes delicious crepes. The Inn itself is gorgeous! The web site will show you exactly what I mean. I certainly hope to pay a return visit!
While staying in Rincon I drove south to the lighthoue, cliffs and beach at Cobo Rojo.It takes about 1.25 hrs. and is fantastic.

We booked the Blue Boy Inn based on everyone else's reviews, and we just wanted to add our own confirmation of what a great place it is. Marc is a wonderful and knowledgeable host (It is a little bit funny to hear French spoken in the midst of Spanish-speaking Puerto Rico), the place is both immaculate and beautiful, the beach is half a block away, and there are lots of things to do in the immediate vicinity--or you can do absolutely nothing if you want! There's a good restaurant next door called the Shipwreck inn, and Marc has menus for lots of other restaurants in the vicinity if you want to explore. There's also horseback riding, fishing trips, sunset cruises, snorkeling and surfing within easy walking distance--but the Inn itself may be the best attraction of all, especially at night when the pool is lit, the firepit is on, and the hot tub is doing its thing. We'll certainly be back!
