“Oasis of Tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We stayed for 2 nights and it was awesome. The owners are very amicable and attentive of their guests. The breakfast was no more words than fantastic and delicious. The view and the Brunel Suite is spacious and clean.

My wife and 2 teenage boys just completed our 4th trip to Rincon over 6 years and it was our 3rd time at the English Rose. This place is simply the best.

It is in a stunning hilltop location with a breathtaking view of the ocean and spectacular sunsets. There are only 3 units and a small, but refreshing pool for a dip after a long beach day, so it is like having your own private villa. We rent the 2BR Chester Suite on the 2nd floor, which has a large open kitchen, dining and living area with a pull out couch which brings capacity to 6 people comfortably. one entire side opens to a large balcony with sweeping views and lovely breezes. The place is in excellent repair and is immaculately clean. WiFi and satellite TV for when you just can't disconnect.

The breakfast is not only by far the best in Rincon, but in our opinion simply the best food overall in Rincon. We have eaten in almost every imaginable restaurant and bar in Rincon, including the highly-rated (well deserved) Lazy Parrot, but the breakfast at the English Rose is just a cut above everything else.

Proprietors Ruth and Jethro (and their staff!) are super sweet and always helpful with any questions about things to do and places to stay.

I've seen posts about the treacherous road to get there, but it really is no big deal. Just make sure you have good directions and a co-pilot if you are arriving at night. Its really only about a 1/2 mile off the main road. A mobile device with a map app was helpful on this last trip as we left at night to drive to the Ponce airport and got a bit lost in Ponce.

Finally, I will add that the diversity of beaches in Rincon is one of its best assets. Check out huge waves a few minutes to the north if you are a surfer (or watch if you are not), great snorkeling in calm waters just down the hill from the English Rose, or walk right thru any of the resorts to the calm beaches a few minutes to the south.

Rincon is a quick and relatively cheap flight from JFK. That is why their are so many New Yorkers there. All in all, a great experience!

Room Tip: They are all great.

We stayed at the English Rose on our first trip to Puerto Rico, and it made our vacation all the better. The owners were extremely friendly and were always available to answer any questions we had. The Hamlet room was super clean and spacious and led right out into the beautiful pool area and AMAZING view. It is located at the top of a hill in a secluded area so it was very peaceful and relaxing. About five minutes by car from the beach up a fairly daunting hill, it is a bit of a hike to get there but is well worth the trek. The English Rose is known in PR for their breakfast and was recommended to us by another bed and breakfast owner for both the food and the accommodations. The breakfast was absolutely delicious; every single thing that we ordered was great. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone visiting Rincon. Even if you end up staying somewhere else, the food alone is worth a visit.

Our biggest decision about whether to write the review was whether or not we wanted to share such an amazing place or keep it too ourselves. After deciding not to be jealous we have to say the place is incredible. Everything from the service, location, view, cleanliness of the rooms and on top of that breakfast is included every morning! If your looking for a beautiful place to stay look know further then the English Rose!

We have been staying with Jethro & Ruth 4 times in the past 5 years, and can't say enough about their location, hospitality, and service. We love how peaceful and clean the rooms are, the great view while we have breakfast, and delicious ones Jethro serves!
Last time we were there this past Feb., we stayed in Chester suite and it was spacious w/ such a great view.

Room Tip: Chester suite, and make sure to get a table at balcony for breakfast. Also, Rincon is a nice city t...
