“I wish I were there right now”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

I was at the Parrot for 4 of the best nights I spent in Puerto Rico. The service was amazing and the room had a great view overlooking the pool and valley below. It's close to the beaches and a short drive to downtown Ricon. Jonathan the bartender was very helpful to us in deciding what to do during the day as well as what to see at night.
Can't wait to go back!

In 2010, my wife explored the Trip Advisor site and found the Lazy Parrot, located in the surfing mecca known as Rincon, PR. This was going to be the first of many trips for my son and me, as we are surfers and immediately fell in love with The Parrot and Rincon. We returned again in 2011--this was home for sure. After his senior year in college our son was offered a two year scholarship to go to Spain and teach English to Spanish students. A wonderful opportunity to spread his wings and explore the country of Spain. Our yearly trip to Rincon had to be put on hold, but just for a little while because locked in the back of our minds was our little surf town and The Parrot. Our adventure begins again. The Parrot consists of two sections, an origional building closer to the street and parking lot, and a newer building by the pool. Both are great, as we have stayed in both. This year I wanted to go back to the origional building and try a room on the top floor--great choice, as the view of the island from our room was incredible. Another nice thing about The Parrot is the folks who work there. The staff are wonderful people and really make you feel like more than a guest. When we are here it feels like home, just so comfortable---perfect. The hardest part of our stay was having to say good-bye, actually, see you later, because we will be back again. I want to thank Francia and Steve the owners, Jahby and Sam and the rest of the staff for making our stay in Rincon a wonderful experience and memories I can share with my son for a lifetime. : ).

We stayed at the parrot last week for 4 days and had a lovely time. It was a 5 minute drive to the beach, the view was beautiful (we had a room facing the pool on the 3rd floor) and they even have yoga class Saturday mornings. This is not like an all inclusive where you stay all day long, there is lots to do and see in Rincon, so after breakfast (I recommend the corned beef hash!) you can go to the beach, drive to town, or go play pool down the street at Brisas.

Evenings were great thanks to the staff. Jonathan at the bar helped us so much and was just a great guy, and Elan too!

We were very sorry we missed the coconut drink spot! Make sure you find it when you go to Rincon, apparently its the best (great, now we have to go back!)

I wish the wifi had been better since it was difficult for us to plan the 2nd half of our trip, but I think this may be typical in the area. Many other restaurants closer to the beach have working wifi like the Casa Islena resto that served us a great breakfast.

I should also mention that we ate at the local spot/store Brisas (not the pool place, this is on the same side of the street as the parrot) I had salmon there and tilapia that was simple but delicious (and really not expensive)

Thanks to everyone we met for a great trip!

Thank you so much for your recent review. Sounds like the Lazy Parrot met all your needs except the wifi service. For the past couple of weeks we have noticed inconsistent service with our provider and are working to remedy the situation. Due to the extensive use by our guests we are upgrading our service with a more powerful modem and connecting an antenna system so that all areas will be covered more consistently. This should be finished in the days to come, we are on it!

Upon arrival you must park across street on a very steep embankment/hill. Tote your stuff uphill to the place, then, climb up one flight of very steep stairs, across a waiting room and then down another flight of stairs, some places there is no railing and these steps are stone pieces, very slippery when wet. Finally, to the office. They weren't in so waited around for someone to show up. Asked for coffee (11:30am, told only service 'til 11. The onsite pizza place didn't have any either. Got our room, climbed another couple flights of steep stairs. The room was pleasant enough, no water or cups for water, coffeepots either. Wanted to go to hottub but discovered it was ice cold. The lady that checked us in said she'd worked there for seven years and it was a 'cold hot tub'. The pool wasn't very clean either and was very icy, like 'cold hot tub'! Overall, it was not a good experience and left exhausted from all of the steep climbing and total lack of any amenities. I definitely felt that I didn't get what I was promised and it wasn't worth the money.

Room Tip: You have to be in good shape to get around in this place its like being in a maze there and there is...

I am finding it a little hard to answer this review when this was a walk in with no previous reservation or obviously no information prior about the Lazy PArrot . So they walk into the Lazy Parrot up and down all the stairs that we don't deny and you will read about on our website. She continues to refer to the "steep" stairs which I am confused about, they are normal stairs that meet all construction standards with railings except for a 25 foot stretch through the garden which have 3 larger steps but also has a railing. They got a great rate in one of our best rooms, which she claimed was "pleasant enough". She didn't see the glasses provided in the room and if she had mentioned the coffeemaker was important to her, we could have have provided her with one. Then she complains about our chilly jacuzzi which is also mentioned on our website and ends her review by stating she didn't get what she was promised. None of the items she complained about were promised and all these complaints were based on a one night stay.
This is a classic case of the Lazy Parrot just wasn't right for her. Always read up on the hotel you are visiting and if there are amenities you require make sure you check those out before checking into the hotel. Something tells me she would rather stay in a chain hotel then enjoy an adventure in a beautiful spot like the Lazy Parrot .

We booked with an add that said free continental breakfast when we got there was told they discontinued ii ask for some consideration as we had 8 people staying desk lady said you can have all the coffee you want. Coffee isn't on till after 8 for any early risers like us . Had pool but I guess it's owned by the pizza place because you can't drink your own beer poolside and after 6
You need to wait to be seated at the pool . We did love the bakery next door great value and food
And the rooms were very clean and a problem with one room was taken care of quickly
Would probably stay again but I'd be looking for a better rate

Room Tip: Rooms 1,2,6and 7 I believe are at the entrance to the restaurant little noise and doors don't he...

As we explained upon arrival, the free continental breakfast was discontinued in November. At that time all wholesalers were notified of the change , as well as all websites and wholesalers, we work with.

The reason for the change was all the complaints we received, which for everyone was different, and suggestions about how we could do it better. These suggestions/complaints all came from previous guests which we took to heart.

Our menu now includes eggs, bacon, eggs benedict and other tasty hot dishes for a nominal fee, at Francisco's (it is very good, I might add!) and we do still serve coffee free of charge in the lobby. There are 2 other options within 50 feet of the hotel that also offers coffee before 8am but I guess this guest never read the information book provided in the room.

The information book also contained our policies of bringing your own food and drink to the poolside restaurant area, as well as no coolers allowed. Our poolside restaurant offers an array of beverages and signage stating the seating is for restaurant use only.

This guest was allowed to consume his own beverages in his room, as well as other public areas, porches, terraces and lobby, so he isn't as confused as he seems.

We thank every guest for their review and we are happy to have the ability to answer the complaints directly, so other potential guests can be well versed on what to expect when they arrive at the Lazy Parrot.

Just returned home from a six night stay here. We were here about two years ago. LPI is a great alternative to the San Juan hotel scene that most people see in PR. Nice, quiet, and laid back.

No problems with late night check-in. Key was left for us in the usual spot. Our third floor room overlooked the pool area. The only couple of hiccups during our stay was a couple of power failures on the property and the WiFi. They are having issues with WiFi on the third floor and it is being addressed. Not a big deal in the overall stay.

Even though breakfast is no longer included as part of the room rate, LPI is still a good value for what we paid. Overall, a nice return stay.

So happy to hear you decided to stay with us again! Yes, "hiccups" do occur and we thank you for that understanding. For those reading this review, we have discontinued our continental breakfast in November 2013, due to suggestions from previous guests and the opening of Francisco's on the mezzanine level of the hotel. This upgrade to the hotel will offer our guests more restaurant options for 10 months rather than 4 months on our previous schedule.
Hope you decide to visit us again in the near future and thank you for your review!

A most exceptional place to stay for a weekend or a couple of weeks. From the hotel manager to the clean-up people. Jahby was so helpful, personable, and all-around person to meet. She bent over backwards to make our stay one the MOST WONDERFUL stays ever. Ask anything and she knew where, when and how. Rooms always clean and fully stocked. 1st appearance is a little deceiving, but don't hesitate, book this hotel, you will NOT be disappointed! Hotel has a restuarant and pool bar, which are exceptional aswell.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool and poolbar are worth the extra cost. Otherwise, all rooms are great!

Thank you so much for your review! These comments let us know how we are doing and what changes we need to make. I am so happy to hear someone else appreciates Jahby as much as I do. She is the kindest person I know and helpful is an understatement. Without employees like her the Lazy Parrot would just be another so so hotel.

I haven't mentioned in a while that the Lazy Parrot began as a surf house in a single family home. Over 25 years we have grown to what it is today, 21 rooms, 2 restaurants, pool and more, but it sure didn't start out like that. So when you pull up and all you see is a very small entrance....remember, the surprise is inside! As our motto says, Come as guests leave as friends!

We look forward to your return....
