Fodor's Expert Review Tamboo Beside the Pointe

Rte. 413 at km 4.4, Rincón, 00677, Puerto Rico

This perennial favorite sits right on Sandy Beach, where the waves are big but not too large for novice surfers. Done in tropical color schemes, rooms—ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments with full kitchens—have brilliant views. Second-level rooms have private balconies; all others share a communal sundeck. Room 8 has the best view, but all guests can enjoy similar scenery from the popular waterfront bar and grill, Tamboo. Sometimes you can spot a whale from the sundeck.
