Let me first start by saying if you are doing a Internet search for places to stay in Rincon LOOK NO FURTHER!!!!! "The Love Shack" went above and beyond our expectations. The quaint, well decorated and cozy villa was exactly what my fiancé and I were looking for in terms of a fun, well priced and romantic getaway. It has...

Let me start by saying that overall we had a fantastic vacation in Rincon. Pools Beach Cabanas was not a cheap place to stay and we went expecting certain amenities for the price and from the photos it looked very nice. I'll begin with the positives. Pools Beach Cabanas is in a great location; just minutes from town, across the...

If you like surf this is the place to be. It needs maintenance but overall is really good if you like to feel the adventure. Lugar muy bonito, Los cuatros necesitan mantenimirnto y mejor limpieza, las camas no tienen sabanas. GREAT SUCHI. DELISIOSO SUCHI Y CERVEZAS ARTESANALES.

First off, the positive: Pools Beach has a great location across from a surf-able beach, amenities such as pool and restaurant, and overall relaxed vibe. If you have a rowdy crew, no one is going to complain about you being too loud or drunk, for sure. We rented the A-frame which was secluded and spacious. The negative: this hotel is...

My husband, my 8 year old and I stayed for two wonderful nights in "The Love Shack".. which was like staying in a big private treehouse with panaromic views of the ocean. (please check out my photos!) Its just a short drive up the hill from the rest of the resort...it is also possible to walk. There is a huge...

We're just back from a few days at Pools and are already planning a return visit. The place is a curious mix of vacation rental, bungalo and guest house. The proprietors, Dennis & Carol are warm and accommodating and can point you in the right direction of the best surf break or local bakery. A real treat is the poolside...

First I have to say thank you to Dennis and Carol for making everything so easy. The cabana was so comfortable and accesible. We were so happy with the location and the set up of your cabana. The beach was literally across the street and hearing the ocean every night was so calming. I also want to say that your...

Agree with tropvaca - stay clear of this place. Pools Beach was by far the worst hotel experience of my life. Awful service and dilapidated accommodations. Quite a shame, as the location has so much potential. Only bright spot was the sushi bar and its lovely owner - worth stopping by for dinner, but would sooner camp out on the...

Not much that we can respond to when we don't know what the bad service was but wonder why they didn't write a review till nine months after their stay.

I made reservations for this hotel at least three months ahead of time. My major mistake was booking it after having seen only a couple of reviews from a few years back. I booked it by phone after a nice discussion about Rincon and Pools Beach with the woman who answered the phone. There is no Internet reservation option, and...
