“Best guest house in rincon!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We chose to visit rincon and stay at punta Taino after a previous reservation didn't work out and we couldn't have made a better choice.

The location is AMAZING, right on the main strip about 100 steps to the beach. The guest house is lovely, clean and well kept- we were traveling on a budget and the place is definitely the best value in the area. My only complaint is the water pressure/temp could
Use some help but could just be our room

The place is brand new and the owner cares a lot about the upkeep- basically if you are respectful of his place he will go out of his way in his hospitality. He drove us into town before we had a car to groceries and let us store our belongings in a secure location before and after check in/out. He has lots of excellent advise about the area and secret spots to explore.

As for rincon, definitely the BEST town in this area and not only for surf. Picturesque little surf town and the people are so nice and hospitable. Great bars and restaurants all around. (the prices are pretty comparable to the US-not cheap like you would expect in other Latin countries)
Note: it's recommended to rent a car if you want to do activities, get groceries, or travel beyond the main stretch. We managed the first few days with out one walking and hitching rides- but FYI the area has very steep hills or and cabs are not prevalent unless you call

Pretty nice guesthouse with an amazing Location (30 seconds down to the beach and a couple of bars around). Nice serving spots around (Sandy Beach etc.). Really enjoyed my stay there. The owner, Daniel, was a really nice and friendly guy. Clean and nice rooms and with a Price of 98 Dollar a really nice deal in this area.

My husband and I ended up in Rincon last minute, Daniel answered the phone right away and assured us he would have something ready and invited us to leave bags and head to the beach! The studio was impeccably clean and cool. The beach is right across the street, and Daniel advised us where to go for the best food which was far beyond the standard beach fair, in a word delicious. Daniel even helped us book a horse back ride at sunset that was the highlight of our stay. I highly recommend Punta Taino for singles or families it is the best!

Our stay here was awesome...I highly recommend!! The room was extremely clean and comfortable. Nice courtyard and rooftop deck to enjoy the beautiful weather and laid back environment. Location is great, steps from the beach and options for food and drinks within walking distance. The owner was very accommodating as we had a super early check in and check out. He also had plenty of advice on things to do in the area!

We wanted to check in early, so we called the owner and he was very accommodating. He also suggested some great places for surfing and swimming. The room was very clean and comfortable. The only drawback is that the place is surrounded by a couple bars and the music at night can get loud if you're not a part of the crowd doing that partying.

The place was great and everything looked nice. however the owner though he was our father or something he told us the rules when we got there, thats fine. Later that day he told us again the same thing as if we had forgotten already. Dude its only been 3 hours chill.(din't actually told him that but thought of it) he actually get on repeating the rules with no reason. He then started gossip to other guest about us and that we were disrespectful when we fallowed the rules accordingly as how he told them to us. He even talked nasty to my girlfriend and our friends the other couple staying with us. There is also almost no water pressure in the shower and barely any hot water. He also has strict time of turning on and off the a/c and if you lower it under 70 he will shut it off.the last day he woke us up and made us leave. I still have more things to say about the owner but he is working for himself and not respecting people. He is really not that nice

Firstly, I'm glad you at least liked the place. I appreciate your patronage however there are house rules with any establishment that you may go to. If I had to remind you to close the windows while you run the air conditioners to conserve energy and not waste in order to keep room prices affordable so be it. What you failed to mention is that you were going in and out till 4am trying to bring friends inside the premises to drink and hang out at 2-3 am that were not registered while my other guests were sleeping is not acceptable. The next morning check out time 11am came and went and I had to knock on the door for housekeeping to do their work. I guess that's what you call, throwing you out. When your somewhat immature these things may appear treating you like your father would.Renting a room doesn't give you the right to do as you please with disregard for other guests also paying and expecting consideration. I try to make everyone's stay comfortable, sorry you feel the way you do.

I definitely recommend the Punta Taino for those making the trip to Rincon. This is a simple, European-style hotel with very affordable rates. Built around an open courtyard design, the feel is tropical and sunny. This isn't a hotel with lots of amenities like TVs and movies. This is the kind of place you stay at when you really want to soak up the wonderful location you've traveled for!

PROS:
- As a female surfer traveling alone, the premises were extremely safe and secure
- Bedroom and bathroom were immaculate
- Location can't be beat. Close access to beaches, popular beach bars and music/dance scene all within walking distance
-Details helpful for surf travel like surfboard storage and laundry facilities
-Reliable wifi in courtyard
-Great wrap around roof-top patio with hammocks and sunset views
-Perhaps best of all, Daniel the owner personally makes sure each guest is always comfortable. He grew up in the area and has returned to open this great addition to the local Rincon hotels. Always quick with a welcoming 'hello!' or much-needed advice on where the best cheap eats or best surf lessons were located. I appreciate staying at a place like this where the owner is so clearly invested in the hotel's success and not just some faceless chain.
