Area description
Located in Western Puerto Rico, the town of Rincon is a small beachfront community which boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in the island. Be ready to discover this town of exceptional beauty and rural hospitality. Known as: 'The Surfing Capital of Puerto Rico' and 'The Land of Beautiful Sunsets', our visitors have discovered that this small town offers more than just surfing and sunsets. Although Rincon is a small town it has attracted visitors from all over the world for many years. Rincon does not offer the glamorous nightlife that you would find in Puerto Rico's capital (San Juan); nevertheless, its charming beachfront restaurants, bars and inns offer a much more authentic sample of Puerto Rico's Caribbean hospitality. Watersports abound in this area. Due to the geographic location of the town of Rincon, its northern beaches are considered part of the Atlantic Ocean, while the southern beaches belong to the Caribbean Sea.

Beautiful scenery, friendly staff and great food. The bathroom needs upgrades and sliding door could not be locked. We had a wonderful time and would go again.

Awesome honeymoon

Although the beach cabana was not what we expected, it was still a wonderful stay. Beautiful clean grounds, amazing scenery, friendly staff and right on the beach. Food and drinks a little pricey but pretty much the norm for tourist areas in Puerto Rico. The other plus was at night there was no light pollution on the beach! If you want to have a party atmosphere there are two hotels just a short walk down the beach with music and big crowds, but at the Rincon very quiet and laid back. Couldn't ask for a better place to enjoy our stay. We will be coming back!

Awesome trip

The Rincón of the sea provide a great value for a beach front resort. The location is perfectly situated on a stretch of white sandy beach. The pool is seemingly on the beach. The rooms are averagely appointed but fit the bill. The food at the restaurant is very good and te bar is great.

No Smiles Here

Our family of 4 stayed here for 7 nights for spring Break....I had read many of the reviews of this hotel before we stayed so I can say I was prepared....The main complaint I read were the dirty hotel rooms, so we opted to upgrade to the nicest suite -"The art Deco Suite" .....and this cost us 280.00 dollars a night. It was a great location....walked out right to the pool area, but definatly could use some updating....it was smelly and dirty and the bath tubs and shower were disgusting. Now on to the reason Im writing this review....The service. My family and I travel quite a bit and are not afraid to spend money while we are on vacation on both food and drink. It seems as if everyone who worked there did not want to be there....I went to the pool bar everyday for either a snack, lunch or some drinks and it took forever for the workers to acknowledge us...and they were not that busy.....and when they did ask us what we needed, there was never a smile or small talk. It was borderline rude and offensive. Like I was bothering them. While in Rincon we went to many restraunts and even a few hotel restraunts and the people there were very nice and help full....so i know it was NOT the area BUT instead the rincon of the Seas. When I am spending that much money at a hotel, Id like just a little bit of decent service. Id reccomend a short walk down the beach to the Villa Confresi--Great food, Nice service and good drinks!! Definatly would not stay again, but still had a great time in the Rincon area!!

Great location

This hotel is located in a great location in Rincon, close to local beaches. The pool bar is great and there is a very friendly staff. The delux room is nothing special but clean. The hotel is older and rooms need to be renovated. Overall, had a good experience and will go back.

Beautiful location!

Views of pool, courtyard and ocean from 5th floor room were fantastic! Pool and pool bar were great! Room and bathroom were average but we didn't spend much time in there anyway. Food was good. I would stay there again.
