Why Carlos Castro chose Rincón
Best deal/view on Sandy Beach, but more than anything, these 2 bedroom apts are arguably on the very best location in all of Rincon and perhaps in all of PR for vacationers.
What makes this Condo unique
Cool breezes, clear waters, Endangered Humpback Whales and Giant Leatherback Turtles nest in front of Pelican Point. Centered on the famous Sandy Beach puts us where all the action is and where everyone wants to be. Only 18 homes are beachfront and we are the very center next to Tamboo. Most guests rarely leave the immediate area and continuously telling everyone they never want to leave.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Very short stay
We had to spend the first night without power, due to a power outage and no electric generator provided by the owner. The outage continued for the next day and we have to move to another place. Excellent location and a great view. Very important to know that Rincon has continuous power outages after Hurricane Maria and you have to paid in full for a night with no electricity for refrigerator, AC & TV.
PP is great!
I loved staying here. The view is fantastic! The courtyard area is great! Our youngest daughter loved the little tree swing while my husband and I loved the hammocks. The manager, Carlos was awesome too. Always so helpful and accommodating! I hope to be back soon!
On the beach
Great location. Off street parking. Clean. With the manager, Carlos Castro, it is like having a travel advisor. His recommendations as to great dinning places was right on. I would highly recommend Pelican Point to anyone visiting Puerto Rico. And anyone visiting PR should make a visit to Sandy Beach. Beautiful beach, close to downtown Rincon. Great people and just a delight.
mediocre property if you're happy not to sleep on weekends
Apartment was clean upon arrival. Kitchen was stocked ok, not enough cutlery, could use basics such as strainer etc. Stove top worked intermittently. One burner was completely broken. Fridge only had one shelf, completely inadequate for a small family of 3 quantity of food. Asked for another shelf (as neighbouring apartment wasn't rented) was denied. No hot water in kitchen, made it difficult to wash really greasy dishes. No table to eat at just a high bar shelf. Difficult to sit a toddler in a high bar stool for meals. Beds comfy. Both bedrooms with AC. First night, AC in master was leaking. Property manager was prompt to send repair guy following day.
Great location on Sandy beach for day time. However, Tamboo bar right next door is LOUD on weekends. I read the previous reviews and asked the owner about the noise due to the fact we were travelling with a young toddler. He told us it wouldn't be a problem if we ran the AC. In the bedrooms, with the AC running and while wearing ear plugs, the booming base from the DJ still disturbed us a lot on Fridays and saturdays (the windows vibrated) and if you were in the living room, you had to turn the TV up in order to hear it. And after the bar closes (early morning hours), the patrons spill out onto the street and there's a quasi street party right out side of the apartment's windows causing even more disturbance. Such a shame because the other inconveniences in the kitchen etc could be lived with but the lack of sleep really puts a dampner on a vacation.
Pelican Point is an excellent place to stay within your vacations. The apartment, beach, facilities and the attention provided by the manager was off limits. Considering to return is a definitely a yes.
Rincon Summer Family Vacation
I hope you are well. First of all, I would like to thank you and all your staff for the excellent service they offered during our stay in Pelican Point. I have to mention that it was a great family vacation. Both my children, as my wife and other relatives had pleasant and very nice moments in Rincon. I didn't know how wonderful was Rincon until this past weekend. Everything was great, the apartment, the yard, the grill, the time at the beach, and above all the best service.
I would also like to let you know I found several opportunities for improvement in relationship to the apartment D. First, the lock on the front door needs to be replaced, since it does not close easily and occasionally appears to be locked when it is open. Also upon arrival I had to tell Elier to help me turn on the fan in the living room because it doesn't turn on properly. Elier indicated to me that we need to push the blades to turn on and thus step. Anyway, look old and stays all day doing an uncomfortable and annoying noise.
The best part is that you will definitely be our first choice when we want to return someday to spend our summer vacation or spend a good time in Rincon. We are happy.
PD: Please let me know when you mail me the damage deposit, to be aware with mailman.
Thank you for everything.
Thanks again for staying with us Hector and for the kind words. We have fixed the ceiling fan and lock, thanks for letting me know as I had no idea of these two problems but again, thanks for choosing us at Pelican Point. Jim
