“Go-To Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Amapola House has been my families "Go-To Vacation" anytime we need a getaway or week vacation. Each time I visit Puerto Rico a visit to Rincon is a must and primarily because of the comfort and luxury of Amapola House. I've experienced Amapola House for an Anniversary Vacation, Husband's 30th and Best Friend’s wedding, there is no other place I could think to share such special moments.
Everything from the stay to the town is perfect. I'm sure there is no other place that can offer such convenience in location, views and comfort.
I look forward to every planned vacation to Rincon and especially Amapola House. This is the ideal place for accommodation’s, peace, beauty, and accessible to all the best spots in town.

“Memorable Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My Husband and I visited Rincon P.R. and stayed at the Amapola House last year on a memorable getaway. Memorable in fact because he proposed to me on that trip! Amapola was the perfect place to get away and relax. The house comes equipped with a full kitchen and all kinds of amenities really making your stay feel like you are at home. The house is beautifully decorated and well taken care of. Morning coffee on the roof over looking the ocean was a great way to start our day and cocktails in the jacuzzi on the roof was a wonderful way to end the day. The house is just up hill from the beach and great local restaurants. We loved Rincon and our stay at the Amapola house so much, we decided to come back and get married there!

“We Bring Back Fond Memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

We decided to have a family vacation in Rincon, which we had never visited. The photos of Amapola House do NOT do it justice. From the upscale decor (kudos to the interior designer), spacious rooms which were individually air conditioned, to the breathtaking views, and of course, the hot tub on the roof deck under the stars, made our stay special. Amapola House has a family history, which the visitors can see via artifacts in the kitchen and the hallway, and can read from a coffeetable book. We felt like guests in a home, part of history, and protective of this property. The beach was walking distance. To say that we almost missed our flights back to the states because we did not want to leave "Amapola" says it all, but we bring back fond memories. Thank you from all of us.

“The Perfect Rincon Vacation Rental”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I've traveled all over the world and have stayed in all kinds of accommodations. I've been to Rincon several times and can say that Amapola House is the perfect place to stay and here's why: The beach hills of Rincon offer beautiful views and refreshing breezes. This house is pretty close to the most popular beaches, but not close enough to the beach bars and party houses. The home is new, beautifully furnished and well equipped. The antiques are amazing and so are the one of a kind vintage historical photos. The rooftop terrace and hot tub are among the best feature. Peter, the owner, and Elier, the concierge, are very helpful, especially providing late night access after our flight was delayed. The air conditioners worked just fine, there is a guest guidebook that explains how to use them- people just don't read! The owner designed and built this great house for vacation rentals, which is among the best in Rincon. Can't wait until my next visit to Amapola House!

“Our stay at Amapola House was mediocre. We will not go there again.”

person found this review helpful

House was very hot when we got there. We had to ask the concierge how to turn the air conditioner on. No other explanations were given about water, switches, alarms etc.We were supposed to turn the air conditioner off every time we left the house. Instead we turned the setting to a higher temperature because the house got very hot if we turned it off completely.The owner refused to give us back our deposit. He claims we used too much electricity even though we left the house one day before our due date. Alarm went off at 2:25 am. Nobody had shown us how to turn it off. It took us one and a half hours before we figured out how to turn it off. The electricity went off one day. We had to go to the street breaker and ask the neighbour how to turn it back on.
We were disappointed by the owner. We will definitely not go back to that place.

Management Response

We're confused by this malicious review, especially because it actually averages 3.5 when the individual ratings are added up. We're also confused by the improbable story about the alarm system, which is totally disabled during guest stays and only activated when the home is vacant for several days. And we're really confused by the fairy-tale about our new high-efficiency air conditioners, which are quickly activated with easy-to-use remote controls.

Amapola House is carefully prepared for every guest to ensure that it’s in perfect condition when guests arrive. Our concierge has over 15 years of experience in vacation home management and is considered by most as the best in town. Upon check-in, all air conditioners are quickly started and they cool the home within 10 minutes. All guests are given a tour of Amapola House to highlight its amenities and provide information about the air conditioning, sky deck hot tub, barbecue grill, wine cooler, kitchen appliances and the expresso coffee maker. The concierge also points out the light and ceiling fan switches, which are carefully labeled. The concierge also points out the Fire and Police alarm buttons, which should only be pressed for a real emergency.

Once the concierge makes his introduction of Amapola House and all questions are answered, he makes sure that the guests have his contact numbers and lets them know that his office and home are less than five minutes away. At that point, he shows the location of the Amapola House Guest Guidebooks, which contain over 20 pages of specific information about the house and instructions for the use of all its amenities and devices. The guidebooks are specific to each floor and they also contain regional information and sensible energy saving tips.

We ask our guests to be Green when possible by following a few simple energy saving tips, like turning off the air conditioners when leaving the house for long day trips. The concierge and the guidebooks also inform guests that leaving all 5 split system units on the highest possible setting can cause the coils to freeze or a system overload that can trip the circuit protection system.

When this occurred more than once during this particular stay, the concierge informed the guests that an electrician would be visiting the home to determine if there was a problem. The guests then admitted that before going on long day trips, they were leaving the air conditioners at their highest settings for up to 12 hours. The concierge asked the guests to please abide by the simple steps indicated in the Guest Guidebook (as well as the rental agreement) and the guests flatly refused. After their departure, it was determined that they had consumed almost 3 times more electricity than any guest in the history of the home.

Amapola House was designed and built as a modern, spacious and comfortable vacation home. As as all the other reviews indicate, it has been fully enjoyed by the very happy guests that have stayed with us.
