This is very beautiful, well-designed property in a great location with an excellent restaurant. We visited in the off-season, which was good for rates but bad for availability of the restaurant, which was unfortunate. Also the rooftop bar is not open during the off-season, which is good to note for travelers during this time (and would’ve been a really great thing for management to tell me when I booked). The overall vibe of the staff was that of an aloof, unhappy group of people, which made me wonder how they are treated. My other biggest complaint is there is no coffee when the restaurant is closed (which for us was most of the time, unfortunately). The restaurant only serves branch on the weekends during off-season, which is fine – but there are no coffee makers in the rooms, and no central coffee station anywhere on the property. This was a giant bummer.
This was such a unique hotel! Interesting architecture, amazing rooftop area, cute gift shop in the hallway, and I loved the electronic bracelet access to the room, very modern. The restaurant was closed while we were there unfortunately, and our room had a strong smell that was either mildew or a cleaning agent, but otherwise we had a great stay. The beach across the street had bioluminescent algae at night that we swam with, didn't even have to do the tour! The location was great for beach hopping and we walked to lazy jack’s for food and drinks since everything was closed for off season. There are golf cart and scooter rentals right across the street but we rented bicycles and biked everywhere
What a marvelous experience! Great service, stunning amenities, and fantastic beaches and food near by! The only "meh" thing about it was the arrangement of the shower in our room (there's not a full shower door, so a lot of the bathroom got wet)...other than that I would fully recommend and would love to return one day!
I like everything except the pool was not in operation and we were not notified prior our stay. At least they could give something in exchange .
EXCELLENT pretty and great staff. Amazing pool views
Unique and very nice property. Excellent for adults/couples. Service is not their strong. You don't get pampered as we were expecting. Great location. Great room. Speaking with other couples staying at the same time, same discomfort, comments and complaints about service of employees.
This hotel is perfectly located in Vieques! The staff, if you can call them that as they are more like a family, they are AMAZING! The rooms are super cool! The restaurant and bar is great!!! The view from the rooftop pool is so relaxing!!!
I loved the intentional style of the building, rooms. Has multiple great spaces to hang out- rooftop bar, downstairs restaurant bar, outdoor space. Modern, intentional building design. The only downside was that the rooftop bar was closed the entire time we were there, but we could still hang out there.
Love the design of the hotel! Also it's very close to a couple of good restaurants and the meet up place for bio bay tours.
Excelent location, close to the beach ,very good staff
Great hotel with an ideal location in Esperanza. Clean, modern, great restaurant and close to everything you need. Although one of the nights there was music blasting until about 3am, which made sleeping pretty difficult. But I can't complain too much because I suppose that is part of the give and take with being close to the "action" vs getting rest. I would recommend requesting a room not facing the bars if you are staying on a weekend night and want to sleep!
The hotel is in an awesome location, positioned on the part of the island were you can do the most activites. Awesome facilities an awesome food! Reccomended.
Great experience A+++++++++++++++++++++++++ Highly recommended!
