Recent Vieques Island reviews

  • I fell in love with Vieques

    "We thoroughly enjoy our stay on Vieques. It was so much more (and so much more beautiful) than we imagined. Pura Vida was a perfect size home for us- the kids (which are more like young adults- 15 & 22) loved having their own space- to read, listen to their music and do their social-media thing. (YES! free Wifi) The house came with plenty of board games & movies which we made very good use of after long days on the beach. The house had everything we needed, it was comfortable & roomy & the location was perfect. We learned our way around quickly with Joe & Mimi's help (They were really awesome) and we enjoyed so many great beaches and some FANTASTIC meals. After a few mornings, even the Roosters didn't seem so bad :) (side note; if you're a light sleeper, I suggest ear plugs but that goes for ANYWHERE on the island....) The house had a very powerful AC system that was recently put in. It was so powerful that we really didnt need it the entire night... Most nights we would wake up freezing at 2 or 3am and shut it off completely. The house is within walking distance to El Malecon which is filled with GREAT places to eat & drink. The house was also 3 short blocks from a delicious town bakery that sold the most amazing, piping hot, bread and pastries!! We'd walk over to the bakery in the early morning (he closes by noon) and we'd make some great breakfast sandwiches before we would head out. The kitchen is equip with everything you can possibly need. Coffee Maker, Blenders.. They also supply beach chairs, beach towels and for families with small children; plenty of sand toys and things of that sort. Much to my surprise there was a washer and dryer on the back porch which made keeping the clothes fresh and dry a lot easier. The small yard also has a clothes line to dry off damp clothing that might not necessarily need to be washed. There are many wonderful and secluded beaches to visit on Vieques and most of the time, there will be very few people sharing the beach with you. I cant speak enough about the food. WOW!! Consistently good no matter where you went. Having the SUV was a MUST!!!!!! Yes, you can walk to places from the house but you'd be doing yourself an injustice not having a car there and venturing out. Driving is easy and you quickly learn that there are only 3 main roads.... You cant go wrong! I can go on and on about Pura Vida & Vieques but I will just end it by saying; We WILL BE BACK!!!!!!"

  • very homey and as described

    "My family spent a week at Upstairs Casa Jenny and loved it. Bring earplugs or a noise machine if you are sensitive as the roosters do their job first thing! We loved it. Dave was great to deal with and financial transactions were smooth and as expected. Most impressive was Kikito, the property manager. He went out of his way to help us, was available by phone for questions, picked us up at the airport and gave us a driving tour to acclimate. We loved Esperanza and will return again in 2015!"

  • Spacious, clean, comfortable - "no worries, mon ...”

    "We stayed in the spacious and clean upstairs unit (2bd/2bth) of 4 units with shared wonderful salt-water pool. The ocean breezes and views from our upstairs balcony provided the perfect starts and endings to 7 glorious days on the island. And those days were as carefree as the owners, Jen and Lauren, and Renee, the property manager, could devise. Jeeps on the property are available for rent and airport pickup and delivery was provided along with Renee's excellent local knowledge. Cooler, beach chairs, and ice maker were included. We used the poolside grills and eating area with refrig, restroom, and yard coconuts to great advantage under usually superb evening weather. The well-windowed upstairs floor plan required AC only when the breezes failed on a few occasions. With the windows open you can listen to the sound of surf instead of the local roosters. The only negatives worth mentioning were a few cranky window louvers, lack of a kitchen knife sharpener (if you want to filet the day's catch), hit-or-miss DSL connectivity (it shouldn't matter on vacation), and vehicle suspensions over-stressed by Vieques' killer beach roads. When the 2 gas stations on the island ran out mid-week Renee kindly provided an extra 5 gallons to get us through without losing any beach time. Be sure to ask about the fish market in town (shop before 10am for the day's catch). Phone in your sandwich orders to any of the excellent food shops in town for pickup on your way to the beach - menus are provided in the unit. Casa Ladera is a keeper being close to town, groceries, and great local cuisine. You can trust your hosts and know they're available anytime on the adjoining property. We'll be back."

  • Luxurious accomodations!

    "We were surprised at how big the house is and how much privacy each room has. We only had 4 adults and one child so we did not need the bottom floor apartment with the second kitchen. It is beautiful, comfortable and spotless. Bright colors on the outside but the inside is very tastefully decorated by someone with a great eye for details in nuetral relaxing colors. The towels, linens, chairs, all were high quality. The house managers were very helpful. They stopped by a couple of times and made sure the pool stayed clean. The pool was very nice for relaxing after a hot day at the beach. We were centrally located to everything on the island. We went to Esperanza and the Southern beaches most often but also trekked into Isabel and had dinner at the W. We did not cook but there were very nice appliances. We ate lunch at Bananas daily after the beach and tried different places at night. The weather and the views were perfect along with the sounds of the coquis frogs each night. You definitely need a jeep to stay here and should listen to the house managers instructions on how to park on the very steep driveway because it is tricky and you can scrape the bottom of the vehicle if you come from the wrong angle. I wish we had brought a long a a few more friends to fill up the other rooms!"
