My best friend of 25 years and I are in Puerto Rico vacationing for 10 days, we are traveling the island with no specific destination. We found Casa Islena on Google on our third night (it was after 7pm), we called and spoke to Mara, she was a total professional. She guided us there (since we both are directionally challenged)...

We stayed 2 nights,3 days, weekdays. Reception was friendly, courteous, and helpful. We were given a map with route into "downtown" and restaurants and places of interest in area. Our room(102) was close to the beach, in front of the pool. We shared a small balcony area with a nearby room. Very clean, neat with lots of peace and quiet....

We stayed at CII because some friends had rented a home close by. We did not know what to expect. I tend to prefer 5 star hotels. However, location was excellent, the beach was beautiful. The fact that our room overlooked the pool and beach made the experience memorable. I would definitely go back. The breakfast was decent also, and...

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,...

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...

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...

We were in Rincon for a wedding and loved staying at Casa Islena. Right on the beach with a fantastic tapas restaurant and in walking distance of a couple nice bar/restaurants.

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. The hotel/ inn has just 9 rooms so you never feel crowded. The smell and sounds of the beautiful, close ocean...
