Hi All, I would definitely suggest Beside The Pointe/ Tamboo if you're visiting Rincon. I have stayed there 3 times- twice with family, and I just got back from a stay with a friend. It was great in all 3 situations- I loved the location and the friendly staff members. I ESPECIALLY love the AC in the rooms... and the... More

Beside the Pointe is mostly a place for the 20-something set. The beach (in Dec) had a bad rip tide and was not swimmable, but the beach a few miles down the road was fine. Our room was next to the garbage and the alley where the bar crew worked until the wee hours. The room was tiny and there... More

We did not stay at the hotel but had lunch at the restaurant. The food was absolutely horrible-the steak sandwich looked more like dog food and the grilled fish sandwich was obviously a frozen piece of fish with grill stripes painted on. Yuck. The setting is gorgeous so go only for drinks and the view!

I am a local tourist and decided to stay at Rincon to avoid the hassles of San Juan. The service provided by owners Javier and Moraima was amazing. Once there, we were met by Marta, who took us to Suite #7.Loved it.! It was nice and clean. We had dinner with our kid at the restaurant. Food was amazing. The... More

I give Tamboo/Beside the Pointe five stars, in its category. Some people may not care for that category and rate it lower, but for what it is and what it offers, and with the upbeat and cooperative attitude of the staff there, it is truly excellent. The only thing I might suggest is that they be a little clearer in... More

Great location, right on the beach, we chose the "Honeymoon suite" for $120/night. Had two balconies overlooking Sandy Beach. Beware of weekend partying on Fri/Sat and Mon.!! Most noise level ends around 2:00 - 3:00 AM! Restaurant on site very popular with young noisy crowds, chose to eat at different restaurants for dinner. The 3 Palmas on road 413 is... More

My daughter and I stayed at Tamboo for several days and nights starting on April 2. The rooms are basic but very clean & spacious. The restaurant is well above average and the service at both hotel and restaurant is outstanding. Attitude and approach is not only relaxed and easy but also professional and accommodating.

We just got back from Rincon, the tail end of winter surfing season can be a little hectic from what I've read. We stayed at the Beside the Pointe Inn and enjoyed ourselves. This bare-bones apartment-type set-up is very conducive to the lazy, just kickin it at the beach lifestyle. The kitchen was workable, the bedrooms were big, it was... More
