The building is unique, the views are unparalleled, the rooftop amenities are fantastic. We struggled with the volume of the music from the cantina on Thursday evening (since the building is concrete the sound travels pretty far, especially the bass) and the restaurant is not open during the week (which makes sense), but other than that our stay was wonderful. Great staff, we were able to check in early. Each room has complimentary beach chairs and you can request beach towels at the front desk. There is a cute little shop in the lobby and the staff was always helpful. This is the closest hotel to Playa La Esperanza and the Parque Nacional Bahia del Sol. Several beaches within walking distance (but beware of glass on Playa La Esperanza and French Toast Beach) but with a golf cart you can get anywhere you want to go. Restaurant options are ok in Esperanza, but if you want real local Puerto Rican food, you'll be better off eating in Isabel. If this is your first visit to Vieques, this is a great place to stay. Highly recommended. Parking is iffy--there are public spots around and we had no trouble, but we were lucky. Lastly, we did not know before making our reservations that Easter weekend is a really big party/holiday in PR, so if you want a quiet stay, don't go in early April/Easter weekend. Our mistake, but take that into consideration.

Amazing design and location. It was simply exquisite! The room was comfortable, spacious and beautifully designed. the rooftop was amazing, as was the restaurant. My one regret is that the food service is limited - only open Thurs - Sun dinner, and breakfast on weekends.

Excellent property and location. Staff is so friendly. I had a very good stay. I loved the rooftop. I guess once it's fully open it's going to be even better.
