We went to Vieques for the bio-bay experience and had limited time (a little less then 24 hours) to explore. The number one thing I would advise other travelers is leave yourself more time to really explore this laid back little island... at least 2 days!
Villa Coral was pleasant, and the rooms were very much like how they were described. What I liked most is that this lodging gave a view into how locals live- it is in a residential sub-division, a 10-15 minute walk from the happening little waterfront in Esperanza. Really made me day dream about moving to the islands!
But, for a super short stay, like ours, it would have made made more sense to be closer to beaches and restaurants etc. Villa Coral makes more sense for a bit longer stay- where you rent a jeep and stock in breakfast supplies etc. and have the time to come back to the Villa and relax in the afternoons.

A lot of green, gardens and beautiful beach view. Great infinity pool. Restaurant is very good. You can rent a car from them. Staff was always friendly. WiFi works great. It's a small hotel so everything is quiet, peaceful, spacious and relaxing. Near of Esperanza were all the action is and Black Sand beach.

Isabel was amazing. We were supposed to check-in at 4pm but we explained our situation to her, which was that we arrived at 4am and we wanted to walk a bit but our bags were too heavy and by 2:30pm the room was ready! It was clean, organized and close to Esperanza Beach, Bio Bay and Sun Bay Beach. A must!

Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is 1 block from beach and there are many restaurants nearby. We spent the whole afternoon swimming at Sun Bay, then we went to the Bio Bay tour in the evening there as well. At night, we had some food at one of the many restaurants within 2-4 blocks from the hotel.

Very friendly manager. Nice swimming pool that we often had to ourselves. There is a non-touristy convenience store around the corner. The Malecon is a couple minutes away on foot, with several cool restaurants. We booked a tour of the Bio-luminescent Bay at Abe's, and they will pick you up at their storefront the night of your tour.
The window AC unit struggled to keep up, even while sustained at its highest setting, but the two ceiling fans helped to mitigate. No TV in room. Wifi did not work in the room - we had to move outdoors into a 'public area' nearer the building office to catch the signal.
Lots of interesting animals abound. There are small lizards all over (outside), maybe 4" long. Feral horses once you get away from the busy streets. A giant iguana scrambled into the pool once. There are roosters, as mentioned in other reviews. They're definitely noisy but it's not that disruptive with the windows shut and AC on.
Overall a cool place to stay.
