“Just what we needed....Exceptional Location, Right on Water, Beautiful Beach, Friendly People...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2011

Just returned from a 5-day stay at Sunset Paradise Villas with my wife and 4 kids (ages 2, 6, 9 and 11)....We had considered staying at a hotel, such as Villa Cofresi, which would require 2 rooms - given how our kids are starting to get a bit bigger. Rather than have the 2 rooms, we opted to go the villa route with Sunset Paradise Villas.

The villa is well located in a reasonably quiet neighborhood. 100 yards away is the municipal beach - which was NEVER crowded. Puerto Rico does a wonderful job with their public beaches (actually, all beaches are public as the "beaches belong to the people"). There are palapas and a nice little pizza stand / shop which we found very convenient. People in the neighborhood are exceptionally friendly..

The waves are literally off the back door with a small strip of beach to play on (size of the beach varies during time of year). The snorkeling right off the back door was fantastic as the water is relatively calm and the sunset are beautiful.

Villa is well kept and appointed. Not too big - not too small....

Fast food, bakeries, restaurants, liquor store, pharmacy are all a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive....Easy access to downtown Rincon and the bigger beaches (Marias, Steps, Domes, Sandy etc.)....All are beautiful, relatively uncrowded and offer something different (surfing, snorkeling etc.). But, it was always nice to come back to our "own" beach and the small pool on the rooftop.

We walked up the beach to Villa Cofresi, Rincon Beach Resort, Horned Dorset etc. We found some of these places to be crowded, loud etc. to the point where you had to fight it out for a lounge chair....The beaches were not as nice - but, those resorts offer the convenience of having restaurants / bar right on site. Nice, if that's what you're into.....We enjoyed making our own breakfast, using the gas grill etc....It was easy to seek out the crowds when we wanted. Unfortunately, with the other resorts, you have to leave the resort to seek out the quiet and solitude.

Highly recommend and we'll be back!

The facilities are excellent, the neighborhood quiet and friendly. Views are amazing. The owners take great care to make this a special place to stay, are very accommodating if you are in need of something, and do a great job of informing you of how things work and where things are in the Villas and in the neighborhood. You can spend your entire vacation right at the villas, or use it as a home base to go touring.
During our stay there was an evening softball tournament across the street, so we took in a game and made somme new friends.
We brought our 1.5 year old and 5 year old children with us, and found the setup was perfect for managing the kids.

Yes we have recently added many amenities including our rooftop pool area. One of greatest assets is our manager Holly… she really does care. Many people staying with us use it as “home base” and do day trips all over the island. We are located in a residential neighborhood which offers to a “real” feeling of Living in Puerto Rico (opposed to just being on vacation). Glad you enjoyed your stay.

We stayed in Villa 1 upper level. It had a great open air feel to location. It was apparant though that it was a recent addition, because whoever upfitted this didn't bother to remove the sliding glass doors on the bedrooms, metal handrails on the balconies etc. By spending another $2000 on the inside they could have made it seem like a much nicer place.
Lots of little tiney tropical ants in the villa, and lack of sweeps on the three door help contribute to bringing the bugs in at night.
The neighorhood isn't all that great, but most of Rincon has a mixed feeling to it. Overall I would probably come back and thought it was a good value. Its hard to find a place where the water laps at the foundation of the building to rock you to sleep.

Yes, Villa 1 upper is very open and spacious. It was custom built a few years ago and not a “upfitted recent addition”. We installed the glass door in the bedroom to keep the bedroom from being too dark, but you still can close the door (and curtains) and have quiet and privacy. Yes, we are so close to the ocean at times (during certain times of the year and storms) the water does lap against our stone seawall. If you like to go to sleep at the sounds of the ocean, this is perfect place to stay!

Absolutely beautiful. We came for a family reunion of about 19 people (Not to sure). We rented Villa 2 & 3, and couldn't have asked for more. The kitchens were fully equipped w/ appliances. The roof top pool gave an AMAZING view of the ocean & hillsides. The house was just a dream & I can't wait to come back again next year... But this time with my boyfriend & friends :). I fell in love w/ the place.

I live in Puerto Rico and have stayed numerous times in Rincon. My husband surfs and scuba dives so it is the perfect setting. This was by far the best accomodations we have stayed in Rincon. The rooms were spacious, extremely clean, the furniture lush and the location right on the beach. We have a large family and it has been the only place where we have been able to fit comfortably. The reservation was a breeze. Constant communication from the owners as to how to pay, arrive, if you have questions, etc. Perfect, perfect, perfect!

I was once asked what I would like for a vacation. My answer simply was - the beach (warm water) directly outside my door. Well I found it: Sunset Paradise Villas. This location has the water, the beach, and more. The fully equipped kitchen and a gas grill (if you do not want to eat out), to the rooms that are comfortable and beautifully decorated; all is here for your enjoyment. You can choose to relax on the hammock, relax on the beach or just relax on the veranda. Walking or driving to everything you need: the grocery store, bakery, and fresh produce stands. The fish and the Caribbean Spiny Lobster are a must; just prepare and cook in your kitchen. Use your car to explore the surf beaches or travel to Joyuda to dine at one of the many outside restaurants. A short trip inland to Lares is a nice take for the day; and don’t forget to stop at the Haladeria for some of the strangest and best tasting ice cream you will ever have. Don’t worry about the long drive from San Juan; it is well worth it; once you arrive all that will be far behind you. My family and I can’t wait to take the long drive again.

My friends and I rented an entire vila for a 30th birthday celebration...there were 15 of us total. The house was beautiful, the weather and sunsets were gorgeous, and the location was perfect. Everyone had a great time and no one wanted to leave. We hope to go back again soon! Thanks for the hospitality!
