Oceanfront suites designed to make your vacation extraordinary.

 

The Lemontree is a beachfront hotel directly on the water in the most western part of Puerto Rico. This is not what makes us special. We are a small family owned and operated guest house and we have been welcoming guests home, to their place by the sea, for more than 11 years. For all of our staff the most important part of our day is to make a guest feel welcome and a part of this amazing place. What drives us is to prepare an inviting space and to connect guests with what is unique about Rincon. We take this responsibility to heart.

Our suites are directly oceanfront with expansive terraces, tropical furnishings, free WiFi access, full cable package and daily room refreshment.  Each suite has a fully equipped kitchen. We have an expression here "mi casa es tu casa"... my house is your house. We aim to treat all of our guests as if they were part of our family in whom we are trusted to provide a hospitable welcome... and this is why the Lemontree has worked for thousands of guests. Come join us.

 

 

More than just an accommodation.

 

The Lemontree combines the best of a boutique hotel with all the comforts of your own home. Right on the beach. The amenities we offer are all about connecting you to Rincon and Western Puerto Rico. The accommodations themselves are like your home only in the most wonderful place you have ever been. The kitchens enable you to shop and prepare food like people here do... if you want. The comfortable terraces allow you to directly experience the natural world; the sea and the sky... the changing weather and the progression from day into the night all as it unfolds. If you need your laundry done, ask. If you need a special service, ask. We are here for you. We are the face of Rincon and this is where you belong. Welcome home.

 

 

Spacious Suites

Room to breath, room to live

Our suites are the perfect antidote to a cramped hotel room or a room-a-go-go in a strangers home. Our suites are large, with a kitchen, dining space and many suites offer several rooms. All of our suites have terraces and other outside areas for you to relax, enjoy a glass of wine, have a conversation, make plans for the day, contemplate the sunset or just listen to the rhythm of life.

Directly Oceanfront

The ocean and nothing but

All of the Lemontree's suites are directly on the ocean. They have either large private or semi private terraces which afford guests the opportunity to enjoy our indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Most guests use this outside, oceanfront space as an additional living area. Until you have experienced living by the ocean you have not really heard the earth's pulse.

Complete Kitchens

For a meal or a snack

All of our suites feature complete kitchens for you to prepare food and drinks from snacks to full meals. Dishes, glassware, flatware, pots and pans. Several of the suites have ovens. For you, it is another way to come home. For some it means a considerable savings from going out for all your meals. For others it just means more time to enjoy the things you want to do.

Laundry Service

By appointment only

If you are traveling for an extended period of time a laundry service may be the difference between an overstuffed suitcase and a comfortable trip. The Lemontree maintains laundry facilities for its own linens and towels and, by appointment, we can make arrangements to do your laundry, time permitting. We offer one day service for garments that do not require special handling. Wash and tumble dry only.

Things to do in Rincon

Outdoor Activities
Rent a kayak; or go on a banana boat ride with Capital Water Sports; go deep sea fishing; learn to dive or just try it; Scuba Diving - Rincon's Taino Divers offer scuba and snorkeling diving tours to Desecheo Island and local reefs. There are snorkeling adventures right in front and nearby the Lemontree too! Horseback Riding - Tropical Trail Rides is a great establishment where you can ride on the beach. How about para-sailing or perhaps a sailboat adventure? Perhaps you would like to learn how to sail one of those fun sunfish... or surf.

Walks down the beach
Our very own LemonTree Beach is a wonderful swimming and walking beach, and connects with Almirante Beach to the south and reaches to The Horned Dorset to the north. Almirante Beach (nearby) can be reached from the LemonTree and is where The Rincon Beach Resort is located. Tres Hermanos Beach (nearby) is a long and wide beach that reaches toward Mayaguez.  A very short drive (3 minutes) further north in Rincon's South Side is Corcega Beach, another great beach for long walks, swimming, or admiring the scenery.

Shopping
The Mayaguez Mall has all the large stores including Sears, Marshalls, Walmart, JC Penny, Capri, Radio Shack. The Aguadilla Mall has K-Mart, Capri, and a full range of specialty shops. Western Plaza offers a large K-Mart, a Home Depot, Sam's Club, a movie theater and a set of specialty shops. Downtown Rincon has shops with items you can take home at very low prices. Rincon's renovated town square with fountain is a wonderful place to take a morning coffee.

Dining - A few of our favorites

There are many famous spots in Rincon that offer delightful and elegant dining... or just plain good food. For an upscale dining experience try the Horned Dorset Restaurant that is just up the road from Lemontree. The nearby Rincon Beach Resort has a very nice restaurant too and no reservations are required.

The Tamboo Tavern has a funky lunch menu and dinners by the sea!

For great fresh catch seafood, local specialties and even a bar pizza check out El Fogon, about 30 seconds from the Lemontree by car.

Pools Beach Café offers excellent burgers and kabobs and sushi.

The Spot... The Black Eagle. Down Home and on the beach.

Day Trips

San Juan: Narrow cobblestone streets, colorful colonial buildings, centuries-old fortresses overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, hot clubs, fascinating museums and art galleries, handcrafts on the corners - and everything bathed by a tropical breeze - these are some of the characteristics of legendary Old San Juan.

Ponce: This is the second city on the Isla but many think it is the "Capital of Art and Culture". The central square, the Museum of Art, the Serralles Castle are just a few of the attractions. It is easy to spend a day and the drive to Ponce is easy. Some guests have gone on the Hacienda Buena Vista coffee plantation tour.

El Yunque: is our rain-forest.  Among crags, waterfalls, ferns and wild flowers are many marked trails to enjoy on foot or horseback. El Yunque is less than an hour's drive from San Juan, and there's road access to the reserve.

Guanica Dry Forest Reserve: Southwestern PR is home to the Guánica Dry Forest Reserve, and an International Biosphere Reserve. La Parguera and Boqueron are wonderful Caribbean towns and home to a great bioluminescent bay.

The Ruta Panoramica: The Ruta Panorámica is a system of  mountain roads covering 165 miles of the Central Cordillera mountain region. It takes approximately 3 hours to drive the entire route. Many guests will explore this route on the way to other parts of the island.

The Caves at Camuy: Very popular with our guests. The caves are open to the public and feature a small trolly or walking tour. Be sure to contact them for hours of operation.

Arecibo Observatory: Want to check out ET? The observatory at Arecibo is just the thing.
