Where to Stay in Rincón
If you’re staying in the “surfing capital of the Caribbean,” embracing your inner beach-bum doesn’t necessarily mean sleeping in a shack. Rincón offers a variety of accommodations – from luxurious to laid-back. Nearly every lodging option overlooks one of Rincón’s stunning beaches, where you can surf, swim, snorkel, paddleboard, dive, and much more. There are also properties nestled amidst lush vegetation that will give you a sense of being in an exclusive, secluded paradise.
From pet-friendly inns like the Serenity Hotel to private pools in villas at the Horned Dorset Primavera, here’s a selected list of the best places to stay that Rincón has to offer:
Horned Dorset Primavera
Inspired by a Moroccan design, each Horned Dorset Primavera suite and villa is set to provide full relaxation during your luxurious stay. All suites have two floors that include a master bedroom, marble bathroom with walk-in jet showers and freestanding soaking tub, a living room, and personal plunge pool. The hotel exhibits an overall sense of opulent leisure without being stuffy.
Beyond your villa, you can enjoy two fresh water pools, a gymnasium, yoga pavilion, bar, lounge, classical game room and library. Staying at the Horned Dorset guarantees privacy, luxury, and service. The hotel does not accommodate children less than 12 years of age.
A unique, family-run hotel balanced on a quiet hill, the Lazy Parrot Inn offers 21 individually decorated guest rooms that feature refrigerators and microwaves, flat-screen televisions, and complimentary internet access. You’ll also find outdoor recreational opportunities, a pool, and spa. Cook-to-order breakfasts are served at their pool-side restaurant, Que Viva Tratoria, where you can also quench your thirst at the bar. Its location — minutes away from Rincón’s best beaches — makes this hotel one of the most popular in town.
Right in front of the beach is one of the most acclaimed family-friendly accommodations in Rincón. A spacious open-air lobby overlooking the ocean welcomes you into a hotel full of amenities including a pool, gymnasium, table tennis sets, pool tables, game room, and a souvenir shop. Villa Cofresí is big on fun, and has a celebratory atmosphere (including a boisterous outdoor bar) that makes it popular for weddings and parties.
You’ll also find a full-service restaurant and well equipped guestrooms with air conditioning. While you’re there, try its famous El Pirata drink, a cocktail made of several rums, coconut milk, and cinnamon served inside a fresh coconut.
Rincón of the Seas Grand Caribbean Hotel
A promise of barefoot-elegance in a relaxed natural setting is what the Rincón of the Seas offers. With 112 guestrooms (many with private, oceanview balconies), an expansive pool area with swim-up bar, direct access to the beach and more, this hotel strikes a balance between refinement and fun. With on-site dining options you can opt to never leave the property and relax, or use it as a home base to explore the western side of the island.
