This was an immersive experience not a big chain hotel. In the evening the roosters and dogs on the island start crowing and barking. In the morning the roosters crow again. Turn off your electronics and enjoy the location.
We were picked up at the airport by Penney. She is the hands on owner of the hotel. When we arrived she helped us schedule what tours we wished to experience.
Within walking distance is the last Spanish fort built in the western hemisphere and the town.
We took advantage of horseback riding, biobay tours, shopping and local eateries. Please know that the horseback riding is through the town, in the woods, up hills, down hills, on the beach and back again. Awesome.
Taxi service is relatively new and has a few glitches. The hotel has no affiliation with the taxi service. So were I to visit again I would walk to the locations and rent a jeep for the rest.
The room was clean and comfortable. Coffee and breakfast was laid out in the morning. A small pool is there to cool off in. There was a large balcony to catch the breezes in the morning and the evenings. We never turned on the Tv.
My friend and I stayed at the inn for three nights. The room was small and simple and had everything we needed including AC, mini fridge, and a private bathroom. In terms of the room, you pay for what you get. However, when it comes to service, Maria and Joe go above and beyond! They are incredibly friendly and accommodating. They do whatever they possibly can to make your stay pleasant such as providing beach towels and mats, arranging transportation, providing morning beverages (tea and coffee). They do all of this with just the two of them. It is amazing! Joe even have us a ride to pick up our rental car and made sure we were good to go before leaving. We definitely left the inn with two new friends! Thank you!!!
The hotel is kind of in the middle of no where. Nothing is in walking distance. You should get a jeep from the nearby car rental place. Depending on your room you can get a terrace with a beautiful view of the mountains. The staff were nice. But the the front desk is only on property from 9-5. After 5 you're on your own. The rooms are fully equipped with a kitchen with plates and utensils.
I like that the hotel provides beach chairs, beach towels and coolers for guests to borrow. I like that they provide continental breakfast in the morning. I like that there are loose horses hanging all around the hotel. You literally will have a horse walk by you without its owner. I liked that the AC was super powerful. I was happy that there weren't many mosquitos in the room.
I disliked that the sheets and shower curtain were stained. I found a dead lizard behind the bed. I could tell that the lizard was dead for a long time. Doesn't seem like the staff thoroughly cleans the rooms.
For the price, I think the hotel in fine. I was hardly at the room because I was constantly going on vieques adventures. (Black beach, horse back riding, W hotel pool etc)
