The Pineapple Inn...


Having just returned from a wonderful week in Puerto Rico, I thought I should give kudos where kudos are due.   We stayed at a FANTASTIC place called The Pineapple Inn in Rincon, Puerto Rico.  The motto of The Pineapple Inn says it all… “Relax, Enjoy Life”
How did I find out about this place?  Well, I Googled small inns in Rincon and this one popped up.  I then checked out the reviews on Trip Advisor and voila…
The Pineapple Inn is an intimate inn, located in a quiet residential area of Rincon - just a few short steps away from a gorgeous beach, which is great for swimming, walking or simply watching the sunset. 
Our room was very clean and very comfortable and it had everything we needed – coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator and of course – television and high speed internet.    The garden and pool areas are very welcoming if you choose to just sit back, relax and listen to the surf close by. 
Our hosts/innkeepers were Nelson Santos and Mark Kelly, although Mark was away during our visit, Nelson was fantastic and went out of his way to make sure we were having a good time.  We are self-sufficient travelers, but it was nice to know that if we needed anything, we could just ask and Nelson would have the answer. 
I should mention that a “goodie” basket was left for us every day and included fresh fruit, pastries, cookies, muffins or cake.  It was awesome to come back to the room after a long, hard day at the beach, only to find these sweet treats waiting for us.  Who couldn’t use some sugary sweets before dinner?
If you ever find yourself in Rincon, be sure to keep The Pineapple Inn at the forefront of your mind…you won’t be disappointed and if you are – there is something wrong with you! *smiles*
NOTE:  I’m not receiving any form of compensation for this little plug, but should Nelson feel it in his heart to send me a “care” package containing some of that lemon cake, I’d gladly accept it. *wink*

Sounds and LOOKS fabulous! I've been toying withthe idea of going to Puerto Rico, and it seems as if you have made a convincing argument to do so!
:-)

Glad you had a great time!

nice. next time i am in puerto rico...

reminds of a tim dorsey novel...lol.
@f8hasit - Puerto Rico was fantastic. Rincon was a "surfer" beach town, so it was nice and relaxing, but with plenty of amenities. In contrast San Juan was a metropolitan city with plenty to see and do.

@Brian - I'm telling you would love it and your kids would too (should you choose to bring them).

I have stayed at the Pineapple Inn, and I totally agree: it is a gem. Small, clean, friendly, and right on a fantastic beach. The owners are there if you need them, and lots of fun, too. LOVE the Pineapple Inn!
