My husband and I booked surfing lessons at Surf Rincon and they recommended Casa Islena to us. It's a small hotel (originally the owner's house) with 6 rooms. Our second floor room faced the ocean and overlooked the hotel pool, and was fronted by a large veranda with a lounger and chairs. We had a fridge, microwave, TV and AC,... More

This is a great spot to stay if you’re interested in surfing, relaxing, centrally located but still far enough from town to feel like you're on vacation. The hotel is nice, not many rooms, get the room on the pool level right in front of the hotel – there are only 2 on the pool level – or theres one... More

Casa Islena has it all -- neat and tasteful rooms, a small pool overlooking the beach, surfing steps away from your room, outdoor yoga studio next door and a cafe/bar that is inviting and delicious. The people working there are helpful, friendly and make the stay comfortable and welcoming.

This was our second trip to Rincon, Puerto Rico and our second stay at Casa Islena Inn. It’s roughly a 2-hour drive from San Juan on the main thoroughfares. The Inn is on the beach, offers a swimming pool, and a restaurant. Casa Islena has been family-owned since its inception. The owners and staff take care in ensuring their guests... More

Casa Islena is a gem of a hotel/ inn on a beautiful surf break. I loved my stay so much I am returning next month. The owner, Dario, is a kind, gentle person and very attentive to your needs.

If you're in the island to get the best of it, stay at the Casa Islena! First, the location is perfect. It had the privacy we were looking for and it was also near to great restaurants and the local night life. It is a small town, but you can always count on great people.
