We wanted to experience Puerto Rico in the most eco friendly way possible, which is why we were delighted when we were invited to stay at The Lazy Parrot Inn in Rincon. Most people spend the majority of their time in San Juan when they visit the island. But I think Rincon is definitely the place to stay if you love nature, sunsets, a chill vibe, and access to some of the most beautiful spots in the island.
We can’t help but think part of the reason we loved our stay so much though, was because of the wonderful venue we stayed at.
The Lazy Parrot Inn is a small boutique hotel in the center of Rincon, Puerto Rico. But because of its location on top of a hill, it feels like you’re secluded in the middle of the jungle.
The hotel is small, but the service, amenities, and location are all spectacular.
From the decor to the layout of the property, everything about this place screams tropical vacation. We loved our balcony with an outside table and hammock, and it was our favorite thing to enjoy morning coffee by the pool. They serve fresh coffee every morning and they have diary free options. Win, Win, Win!!!!
The hotel itself is only a few blocks from the beach, where you can experience the most beautiful sunset on the island. Tourists and locals alike flock to Rincon area every day around sunset time, as if by law.
The hotel is also pet friendly. Next time, we are definitely bringing our pups!
Inside the hotel there are two restaurants. One is a cafe called QueViva. Here, they serve poolside breakfast and lunch. We enjoyed an amazing breakfast here, and great service. One thing that stands out throughout our stay was the service. Puerto Ricans are incredibly welcoming and at the Parrot Inn they seemed to truly care about service.
Our other dining experience was in Alioli a Spanish seafood restaurant by Spanish chef Julio. Alioli is the fine dining restaurant on the top floor of the hotel, and we had two incredible meals here.
The chef showed us fantastic Spanish dishes, all made with local produce and ingredients. He went above and beyond to describe his process, and even told us how he sources the ingredients. One could tell, not just from the flavor, but from the interaction with him, that he truly cares about food.
All of the seafood is locally sourced. Another Win!
Our time in Rincon, Puerto Rico was absolutely amazing and we love knowing our footprint was lighter on this trip. We love supporting businesses that care about the environment. It truly shows when a hotel or restaurant make an effort in their community, and with Lazy Parrot Inn their love for nature and dedication to good service was palpable.
Our only regret? Not being able to stay longer!
Next time, we will make sure to stay for at least a week!
Have you been to Rincon? If so, do you agree it’s the best sunset on the island?
