My wife and I visited Rincon for the first time last month for a surfing vacation. A friend recommended the Villa Cofresi. The hotel is a family owned and operated establishment. There is certainly a welcoming, friendly atmosphere that is promoted here. We met many families that return year after year that seemed very happy with the hotel. I’m trying my best to be optimistic about this place and we usually overlook minor details that disappoint us, but in this instance, there are just too many to ignore.
First and foremost the staff is very friendly and accommodating (genuinely nice people).
The rates are quite reasonable.
The bar is one of the nicest in Rincon (right on the beach / amazing sunsets).
Monday night (Gringo night is a lot of fun, great band)
Pirate special (Rum / Kahlua drink served in a fresh coconut…how often do you see a bartender swinging a machete behind a bar?).
Spacious rooms with large balconies.
There’s an electronic safe in the room.
Housekeeping is quite thorough and does a nice job.
Nice large umbrellas are available for loan to take with you when you visit another beach (nice touch).
During the course of our weeklong stay, we had one hot shower. (No hot water on any evening of our stay)
The air conditioner made a LOT of noise (screeching sound, we requested that it be repaired; they attempted to fix it but were unsuccessful).
Outside noise makes it difficult to get a good night’s sleep.
Friday through Monday, if you go out for dinner, you won’t have a parking spot when you return.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights the bar fills with locals (not guests of the hotel).
There isn’t much beach and there aren’t enough lounge chairs.
There’s no break at this hotel, you have to drive about ten minutes away to find surf.
There’s a shortage of beach towels.
Intermittent wifi (it rarely worked in the room but in the lobby it always worked).
The free breakfast is adequate, but could be better. (They offer one type of fruit per day, no yogurt and no granola. If you want eggs they charge you $6. They only use paper and plastic. The paper coffee cups are a little bit bigger than a shot glass.)
We enjoyed our stay and the people there are really nice, but we won’t return to this property.
