For background, this is probably my 30th time to PR and my 10+th time to the Rincon area. I stayed or been in a bunch of places in the area. We were surfers, rock climbers, and such, so we are used to all kinds of accommodations - from sleeping bags in the rain onward, e.g. we are not a bunch of city slicker snobs or something.
1-there are no smoke detectors, which upset me a lot. I found them all piled up with the batteries removed.
2-the lock to the gate seems to have been changed and the properly manager was unaware and not really that willing to help. We had to jump the fence.
3-the directions are just wrong, there is no speedway, it has been renamed. Luckily I knew the area.
4-In general the location is ok, it is a ways down from Tamboo, an easy walk. It is not beachfront or that near the beach. You can kind of see the beach, but that is about it.
5-The accommodation were spartan to say the least, actually kind of depressing: there isn't a single thing on the walls and the couches are broken and dirty. The balcony door doesn't close, nor does it lock. I'll be clear, it was ok, but we had hoped for better. It looks like a crash pad for a group of frat boys or something. There were no towels for the beach, or any pillows for the outdoor bed. I kept thinking, would it be that hard to have a couple beach chairs and maybe an umbrella with a couple towels for the guests? I think there was a bar of soap in one of the bathrooms. As I said, it was all ok, but just very ok.
6-The place above us was incredibly loud, I think there was a wedding happening, but it made having the windows open impossible.
Would I go back to this place? Meh, if I had no other choices, as I said, it was ok...nothing worth being upset about, but there are nicer places in the price range - places where someone has spent 30 minutes making it kind of homey for visitors.
