Trip Advisor Review
My wife Emily and I travelled to Villa Orleans in Rincon, Puerto Rico for our honeymoon in January. We stayed over the Secret Garden Gallery at Casa del Artista .
The setting and lodging were absolutely perfect: Beautiful, secluded, private, clean, relaxed, and very tropical. The location is idyllic and eden like - and the beach is unparalleled and gorgeous. The beach is exclusive to guests of Villa Orleans. No one else. Each day we swam, sea kayaked, read, tanned, and snorkeled. It was bliss.
One of the nicest things about Villa Orleans and Casa del Artista is being able to cook. In the morning we enjoyed our fresh coffee on the patio, while at sunset, we cooked our meals on the patio's BBQ overlooking the sea.
Our hosts were terrific, as they shared their home, and Rincon with us by showing us the sweet spots of the Island. We snorkeled at Steps Beach.....We saw the beautiful Rincon Lighthouse, had drinks at Tamboo where we watched beautiful waves and walked on a spectacular beach. We also visited native hotspots like Rum Shack, Bungers, and Brisa's where we enjoyed the most superb tacos we've ever eaten.
My wife and I are definitely booking a trip for next year. My only advice and special request to those who are lucky enough to stay at Villa Orleans or Casa del Artista is that you share this special, secret destination with only your very closest friends and family.
