Very Good

“Surf Watcher- location, location , location!”

Reviewed 4 May 2015

As you read through the reviews on this site I would verify that they all are accurate. The location is superb if you are looking for a non- resort, quiet no frills place that allows you to enjoy all that Rincon has to offer. It was clean, well kept with basic furniture, an adequate kitchen, ductless split a/c in the bedroom which we never used because of the good ceiling fans throughout. Good balcony furniture and beach chairs were available. We had some hot weather so afternoons on the deck were in the direct sun but there was a great sitting area on the ground level that was shaded and had the same surf views . perfect place for that afternoon Gin and Tonic! Our highlights were ( repeating some of the listed comments, sorry.) : Coffee on the balcony every morning. Walking to Sandy Beach for good swimming and surfer watching. Walking to the Red Flamboyan for one of our best meals of the week ( fresh Mahi Mahi in a killer sause) Walking for beer and bar food at the Tamboo driving a short distance to : Steps beach for snorkeling Rincon Lighthouse for beautiful views of sunset Downtown Rincon for the Sunday farmer's market and shopping at the Econo. We had been to Puerto Rico twice before and stayed in Isabella. Rincon proved to have more diverse beaches and, in our opinion, the best choice in Puerto Rico!

Response from the owner Thank you, we are happy you enjoyed the apartments and the location!

My husband and I spent our honey/baby-moon in rincon and stayed at the Pools Beach Apartments. Light, airy, cozy, brilliant views, private beach, walking distance to some of the best beach bars and restaurants. Travelling around Rincon was a lot of fun in our little rented Ford Fiesta (we may have killed the transmission on those hills!) and everything was so close!! The locals were ridiculously friendly and had the greatest dinner experience at Pools Bar Sushi and Grill, directly across the street from the apartment. The private beach was perfect for our little easygoing vacation and we WILL BE BACK!! Cannot give enough praise to this place and its owners and team. THANK YOU!!!!

This is our second stay here, our first was 3 nights in 2011 and was just a tease We stayed a week this year april 25 2014. Perfect weather everyday. Two days the waves were going off from the offshore winds. I can honestly tell everyone reading this, this place is by far the best spot in in all of Rincon!!! The grill station is the best spot to grill in the whole world. Wow What a dream. Can't wait to go back! And we will be back. P.S. The upgraded TV and wifi was just a bonus ;) the Beach is great to walk every morning if you go far enough you can take a trail that leads to domes and onto the Faro my favorite trail. English Rose for breakfast is the coolest drive and good eats.

“Beautiful location”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2013

We couldn't be happier with our stay at the Pool's Beach apartment. It felt as if we were at home away from home. Having our own kitchen, living room and a little terrace with stunning views was priceless. We could prepare our own meals there but there are several great restaurants in walking distance (Tamboo and Sushi Pool Bar were our favorites). There is an access to almost deserted beach where you can surf (if there are waves) or just watch the surfers from the balcony. If you prefer company of other people you can walk to a public beach not too far away with restaurants and bars. There are many beautiful beaches in the area where you can just relax but also surf. That was one of the reasons we chose to stay in Rincon area. Everything is close by and easily accessed. Hopefully we'll be back soon, we fell in love with the place.

Response from the owner Thank you, Beata, you really captured what is so unique about the Apartments at Pools Beach location, plenty to do, but privacy as well. Hope to see you back soon!

What a wonderful place to get away! Rincon and is absolutely fantastic and this area has beautiful beaches, fun restaurants and bars and tons of adventurous activities. This place is a wonderful space to stay with a cozy and inviting interior and a fantastic location. It is on a fun street, so if you want to go to Tamboo it's right down the block, but it also has a private entrance to a secluded little cove beach, called Pools Beach, if you want some seclusion. The best of both worlds. I would definitely recommend staying here and going to explore this island!

“Very Beautiful and Peaceful Place...”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2012

Our family stayed for 3 nights and we wished we would have been able to stay for at least a week. We rented both apartments because we needed more space, plus we wanted to take our dog. We absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to relax and spend some quality time with the family.

“Absolutely Beautiful”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2012

My wife and I stayed in the Whale Watcher unit and it was an incredible location. The unit was clean. There were kitchen appliances (all in working order!) and utensils so we were able to have meals in when we wanted. The view was spectacular! We enjoyed coffee in the morning and happy hour in the evening from the comfort of our patio. We had an unobstructed view of tropical foliage, Desecheo Island, and the beautiful surf. A short walk down the steps led us to our own secluded beach. And Sandy Beach is only a few minute walk up the street. The owner was responsive to our questions prior to our renting the unit. He also checked in with us after we agreed to rent the unit to ensure we had the contact information and directions on how to get to the apartments at Pools Beach. We were looking for a romantic get-away for our honeymoon and this location was perfect! All in all, a great experience and I highly recommend them.

“Three days in Rincon”

Reviewed 30 May 2012

My husband and I stayed at this beach house during our trip to Puerto Rico, and it was the perfect get away from the city. Rincon is a wonderful beach town filled with helpful locals willing to share what their town has to offer. The apartment is literally steps (ok, a stairway) away from the beach. If you enjoy falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing below, then this is the location for you. The apartment offers the essentials (shower, towels, kitchenette, balcony with furniture), however the kitchen was a bit too basic for us. Too be fair, we enjoy cooking while on vacation so appreciate having a few more kitchen gadgets to work with. In all, it was a wonderful stay and we'd return again.
