A family-run hotel right on a beautiful beach, Villa Cofresi is refreshingly down to earth, fun, and the most Puerto Rican experience in Rincón. The management and staff are friendly and helpful, and there are a pool and terrace overlooking the coast, with a vivacious bar and two nice restaurants. Rooms are not elegant, but they are clean, airy, and comfortable. There is a game room for kids, all sorts of watersports equipment for rent, sunset happy hours, and really tasty food.
