Vieques Island hotel lures with pool oasis, spa treatments and eateries
The W Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island beckons with views of the sparkling Caribbean, indulgent experiences and décor that hold timeless, modern appeal. Spaces, from poolside cabanas to a Latin-French-inspired restaurant from a Michelin-rated chef, invite visitors to unwind indoors and outdoors. Whether patrons are lounging in the alfresco living room or starting their day with yoga on the outdoor deck, the property sets the scene for relaxation. This hotel has been awarded the 2011 Conde Nast Traveler “Hot List”, 2011 Travel + Leisure “It List”, 2012 World Luxury Awards “Top 10 Best Resort” and 2012 TripAdvisor “Trendiest Hotel in the Caribbean”
  • Contemporary beachside resort on scenic Vieques Island
  • Outdoor massages and soothing facials at AWAY Spa
  • Three restaurants, including one by a Michelin-rated chef
  • Pool oasis with a firepit and private cabanas
  • Pet-friendly property with beds, treats and toys
Located on the remote, unspoiled Vieques Island, the W Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island affords prime opportunities for exploring local beaches, including Sun Bay Beach, Media Luna Beach and Playa Grande.
The W Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island defines coastal contemporary flair. Like its sister properties under the W umbrella, the hotel makes use of bold geometrics, vibrant colors and mod furniture punctuated by natural fabrics. Views are incredible, from the stunning landscaped gardens to the calming vistas of the Caribbean. Amenities emphasize luxury, including 400-threadcount Egyptian cotton linens, Bliss Spa bath products and the signature W bed and pillow menu. All rooms are equipped with high-speed Internet access and cable TV.
Guests at the W Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island soak up the views from several restaurants, from foodie favorite miX on the Beach (from Michelin-recognized chef Alain Duccasse) to WET, which prepares fresh seafood on the grill for poolside diners. The Living Room, an eclectic, indoor-outdoor space for mingling and cocktailing, shines with contemporary Caribbean style thanks to low-slung seating and DJ-driven tracks.
W Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island lives up to its name. Visitors can relieve stress with a massage in a beachside cabana at AWAY Spa, play tennis, enjoy yoga on the outdoor deck in the fitness center and even shop for home décor items at the W Store. Pets are welcome, too, with special treats such as toys, a pet bed and food and water bowls. A stunning pool oasis – complete with private cabanas and LCD TVs – amplifies the hip quotient.

Our Vieques getaway at the W Retreat and Spa

The island of Vieques is simply gorgeous with it's upspoiled beaches.It was like we were taken back to a time of the 50's & 60's when there were only local merchants no big island corporations operating,The local fare in esperanza was some of the best and affordable cuisine I've ever experinced.The hotel was superb.Both accomodations and the friendly staff.Food at the hotel was quite expensive however.The island is only twenty minutes away from San Juan by plane.Otherwise a 1&1/2 hour ferry ride is needed.We intend to visit at least once a year.A good way to enjoy the sun and escape the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Whatever, Whenever.

Stayed at the W Vieques for our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff was extremely welcoming and always able to answer questions and meet needs. Edward in the sports shop is fantastic and made great recommendations for things to do off the resort grounds. miX on the beach has an amazing, yet simple local menu, and excellent service. The resort grounds are fantastic, the pool is gorgeous, and the beaches are quiet, private and perfectly placed on the Atlantic side of the island. Don't let the price tag scare you away, because the experience is worth every dollar spent. Yes, it's a W, and no, it won't be cheap, but you will be very pleased should choose to visit this resort.

Spend at least one day off the resort and rent a Jeep to explore the island. There is a rental facility on site, but you can rent the same vehicles significantly cheaper at Island car rental, which is a short walk from the hotel.

Amazing luxury resort

The W Vieques is a really amazing place. The hotel is luxurious, the views are incredible, the staff is great, and the amenities are phenomenal. You can borrow snorkels and kayaks from the hotel, book tours on site, and the staff even helped us get a rental car so that we could explore the town. We'll be back next year for sure!

The staff recommended that we go to dinner in the town of Esperanza. Every restaurant there seemed to be an MTV-Spring-Break-style dump: loud music, cheap drinks, and bad food. If that's your thing, have at it. If not, ask for another recommendation.

Honey Moon at The W Vieques Puerto Rico

Trip was perfect for couple honeymooning. Saw a FEW children, but only 2.We had a few hiccups (the hotel has a few issues because it is still new, it has only been open 4 months--door lock broke for several hours, first room had mosquitos) but the hotel made every thing right, giving us discounts on spa visits and room upgrades, this hotel really treats you like a celebrity.We ate at the hotel the entire time, menu is small but good. High prices, but that is normal for a resort.Ask for either [...] or [...] when you go, they are the absolute BEST to deal with.

The hotel is OFF the main island of Puerto Rico, make sure you get a charter plane to take you to the actual island of Vieques.

Beautiful Resort with great service

Amazing resort, one of the nicest hotels we have ever visited. Everything is brand new and beautiful. The staff is very helpful and the service is great. The pool is one of the best I have ever seen with lounge chairs in the pool as well as around the deck. I had one of the best massages I've ever had at the spa. The activity center is very helpful and provides a variety of activities that can be done on the island. This resort is amazing and we had a great trip!

Paradise Island

The W Hotel in Vieques was amazing. The customer service was really good, especially the onsite concierge service. They were very helpful in organizing events during the trip. The rooms are very large and spacious with a double shower (at least in our room). I had a chance to play tennis with the onsite tennis pro, which was another great perk. Complementary Yoga at sunrise and sunset was fun...as well as the free drinks at sunset sip! The outdoor fireplace was a great place to chat and socialize. Overall, this trip was a great experience and I would definitely go back. The only thing that was missing is a hot tub! I really wish there was a hot tub on site.

Rent a jeep while you are out there. It will give you a chance to visit the little towns and see some of the other beaches on the island.
