"Gorgeous above and beyond any of my expectations. "
The secret for this hotel is that some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not.
It is the opposite of vulgarity. This place is a gem in the perfect spot on vieques, perfect architecture, perfect accommodations, perfect views and the staff is completely amazing. The food is ravishingly good, by a puertorrican chef you will be amaze I guarantee.
Second time on Vieques and assured this is the BEST place for staying only for adults.
This adorable hostel was the perfect place to be for my night in Vieques for the Bio-Bay. It was super clean despite many people living/staying there and all the people there were very nice and friendly. It is a hostel, so there are shared facilities and some shared rooms, but my boyfriend and I were able to have our own queen bed in our own room which was perfect. The bed wasn't super comfortable but it wasn't bad. I was impressed with how clean it was! The surrounding area was perfect for a short get-away as well. There is a beach-walk out front which goes for about a half-mile, with a nice beach at the end. The hostel is also attached to Lazy Jacks which is a bar/restaurant which had pretty good food and fun drinks. It as a pretty popular place as well.
All in all, if you're looking for an affordable, simple, nice place to stay, I highly suggest this place!
We knew this bed and breakfast (for lack of a better term, no actual breakfast) was going to be a very enjoyable stay from the moment we arrived and met one of the managers upon check-in. She walked us through everything we could've wanted, with amazing attention to detail (such as what road was best lit if walking to/from downtown Esperanza after dark; towels, chairs and a cooler for beach use; and used a sharpie to draw attention to key places on a map of the island). It was extremely clean and well maintained, quaint, and the rooftop lounge area was definitely enjoyable as well. Did I mention she arranged our taxi to the airport in advance for us, since we were flying out first thing in the morning?! Oh, and they would do laundry.
While there's certainly no denying the location is just off the "beaten path" (still only took 10 minutes to walk to the main drag in Esperanza) and there are indeed roosters in the area (didn't understand why that was an issue for other reviewers...), our biggest regret was that we only spent one night here/on Vieques. In a day and age where customer service is usually a punchline, Villa Coral shows us what great service should look like!!! We will DEFINITELY stay here in the future and would recommend this wonderful place to anybody considering a night on the island. Thank you, Villa Coral, for a wonderful one-night stay during our honeymoon!
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.
