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.

Rincon of the Seas

Located on the beach, just South of Rincon, the hotel is well laid out. Most of our stay in Rincon was at the hotel. We were in a Beachfront Cabana room on the first floor, near the pool and restaurant. The grounds surrounding the pool are lush with palms, orchids and tropical vegetation. The pool, with a large swim up bar, is nice. It is not very deep and is really more for wading than swimming. The breakfasts were fine. We never had dinner at the restaurant. The views of the sunsets were beautiful.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

The Econo market is a short drive North of the hotel. They have everything you need to stock the refrigerator in your room. The prices are reasonable and they do sell wine and liquor.

Rincon in early December

Our goal this trip was to RELAX and that is exactly what we did. The weather was great, the pool and beach were great. The room was okay, some mold in the bathroon, and the TV reception was limited. The staff very good. The food Okay. I was disapointed in the fruit. Maybe the wrong time of year. The first week in December is very slow and we had the hotel almost to ourselves.

Rincon of the Seas Hotel

Beautiful room with a view. It was not the fault of the hotel that it rained every day in the afternoon and evening.We went to mostly small intimate eateries. We walked the beach. All the locals were nice and friendly. The hotel was very safe.

There are several nice places on the 413. It was off season so there were not any crowds. Every place had its own nice touch. The people are what make it such a nice place to visit.

Great 90th birthday for Mom

Hotel personnel and location is great. We reserved two cabanas but they were two regular hotel rooms on the main floor facing the pool. I will recommend and will visit again

Great weekend get away

I have bee to Rincon of the Seas 2 times in 2014. The location is beautiful. The lobby of the hotel is stunning and the rooms are adequate. How much time will you be in your room. The hotel pool is only 4 feet deep but you are only 100 feet or so from the beach if you need more. There is a swim up bar at the pool which is where i spent most of the evenings. There are several beautiful attractions in Rincon and nearby Mayaguez and Aquadilla. Flying into Aquadilla airport is a pleasure compared with the hassle of San Juan.

Just Okay

The hotel was just okay. It needs some upgrades, especially the bathroom. Room was clean and the AC was working properly. It was good that the room was very cold when we got there. But the room didn't have a coffee maker. Pool area is okay, but pool towels are very old and in need of replace. We didn't try the restaurant because our friends told us the breakfast was not good. We attended a wedding there, the terrace was very nice, where they did the ceremony and the reception room was big and very organized. I think this hotel is good for a one or two nights and if you need a place right in front of the beach.
