Despite my initial intentions to keep this beautiful oasis my personal secret, I could not deny Marc the praise he deserves for all the work he has done to renovate this property. Over the past three years, he has transformed a single dwelling property into a tranquil oasis, now with eight guest rooms. Created from a forgotten blank canvas, the rear of the property now reveals a pool, whirlpool, two barbeque terrace areas, a fire pit and ample seating for whatever you’re in the mood for. Although I am no expert, the architecture and design feels Spanish with a Grecian flair. If you are looking for a peaceful place to read or relax, the garden terrace is amazing. Marc’s vision and design has left no detail unforgotten. You truly feel welcomed into his home!

We originally were going to stay two nights and return to San Juan for the remaining two nights. However, after arriving at the Blue Boy Inn, we cancelled our reservation in San Juan, forfeited our deposit, and extended our stay at BBI. A decision well worth it! We will return, again and again!

My husband and I only stayed for two nights while attending a wedding in the area but it was a wonderful stay. The room was so neat, comfortable and very clean. The breakfast was delicious and the property was enchanting, with its gardens and pool, firepit area, hammocks, etc. It was very relaxing and we hope to return some day. We have already recommended this place to our friends. Marc is very friendly, and has many recommendations on what to do while on the Island, he does an outstanding job as host.

Hello Marc!! My wife and I (Garrett and Natalie) came to Rincon out of curiosity, and a desire to enjoy the beach. I wanted to surf and dive, my wife wanted to get a tan. We both wanted a quiet place to stay and love B& B's. We couldn't have found a better place to stay than the Blue Boy Inn...and of course it can always be a little bit of a gamble traveling some place new. Marc and his staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The inn was comfortable, clean, open, and "safe" feeling. Though there was a bit of noise due to the improvements which Marc is finishing, they were a small price to pay for a very enjoyable time.
Making the stay even better was the fact that I was given a promotion at work(while away) and we found out that my wife is PREGNANT with TWINS!!! --- I think it has something to do with the Puerto Rican water ;-) ......We will be back, when the twins are a little older, and we'll be bringing our whole family next time...me and the FOUR women, I am really out numbered in our family. Thanks Marc....see you soon!

We recently had the pleasure of staying at The Blue Boy Inn for four nights. It is totally understandable why I could not find one bad review of this property. Glorylee who was on the front desk was a joy and so very helpful. Marc (the owner) was welcoming, charming and his smile infectious and genuine. His waking hours were spent tending to his guests needs and working on the property. His attention to detail is amazing as he explained with great enthusiasm the finishing touches he was planning for the already beautiful pool area. He has incorporated a barbecque, wet bar and fire pit. In the evening you can sit by the pool and watch the "show" of lights in the pool as they change colour constantly.

The rooms are immaculate and nicely furnished. However, for the most part we took advantage of sitting outdoors, whether outside our room overlooking the amazing tropical gardens, by the pool or on the upstairs terrace grilling dinner on one of the two new large barbeques.( Marc supplied the condiments, plates and cutlery.) We had originally thought we would eat out each night but found ourselves on a couple of occasions not wanting to leave we were so relaxed so we made a few trips to the local grocery store, located a few minutes away in the town.

The breakfasts were wonderful with high quality juice, yogurt, pastries and bread and much more. The homemade French toast, crepes and egg dish were delicious as was the coffee.

The Blue Boy Inn in our opinion is a gem in the town of Rincon and we are so glad we stumbled upon it.

For a third year I have returned once more. There has been some changes at The Blue Boy Inn. Marc, has given us a pool and he is still working hard on improving our stay with a luxurious garden and a new relax zone.
While I was staying there he was in the process of making a pit fire, a new BBQ zone and a jacuzzi. The pool is large and the design and layout are just out of this world.

You cannot go there and not enjoy it. The room are very clean and confortable, at the request of a guest Marc called out the cable company to get an extended cable service. The owner is very much dedicated to the confort of his guest and his breakfest excellent.
If you need a place to stay and spend a week around Rincon, this is the place. You will never go somewhere else after.

Relaxing, enjoyable and you feel like the place belong to you.
Oups ! He installed two hamack for us to take an afternoon nap. Enjoy ! See you there next year.

Thank you Blue Boy Inn.

We arrived a couple of hours earlier than expected at the Blue Boy yet everything was done to check us in as quickley as possible. It was a beautiful spotlessly clean room with a lovely shower room, fridge,cable tv, and a place to sit right outside. Behind reception was a large pool in lovely surroundings, a jacuzzi, barbecue, fire pit,and soon to be a hot tub. The owner Marc was friendly ,helpful and charming. He prepared excellent breakfasts each morning and was full of advice about where to go and what to do. Our room was near the gardens which were carefully tended by Marc. There were 3 restaurants nearby and a lovely beach all within a few minutes walk. I would recommend the Blue Boy and we look forward to visiting again in a few years when it is all finished. Just hope we can get a booking as I have a feeling this place will catch on fast. The shipwreck bar and restaurant next door was very good and the Spot restaurant on the beach was excellent.

blue boy inn was a highlight of our puerto rico stay. the guesthouse is beautiful. rooms are spotless and well-equipped and owner, marc, has seemingly thought of everything. beach towels, coolers and snorkel equipment are available free of charge, as is wireless and wired internet in the lobby. breakfast is phenomenal- an assortment of fruits, yogurts, pastries and quiche and crepes while we were there. location is a short walk from the beach and a couple of great restaurants. my husband and i loved this place and were sad to leave it.
