Dear Sojourner2276, We are absolutely taken away by your review! We strive to maintain the authenticity of this XVII Century Villa while improving it with modern amenities for your comfort and enjoyment. Since we do not advertise very little people know about our existence which makes it very private. We host many family groups as the Villa has 8 rooms,... More

We just returned from a 5 night stay at Villa Herencia. We rented out most of the property on all 5 nights for the bridal party in our wedding (including ourselves, the bride and groom). Three of the nights we had the whole property. It was a perfect place to stay with our wedding being next door, and allowed our... More

My wife and I spent a night here before our trip to Culebra. It wasn't the easiest place to find and the big cab (van) from the airport couldn't drop us off in front of the hotel because the van was too big! We spent the evening on the second floor. The room was quaint Beautiful and very very clean.... More

On return from Tortola we needed a room after missing a connection. We called the CasaBlanca hotel which was full but they had a room at a sister hotel. Located close to all the shops and restaurants and next door to the highly rated El Convento is Villa Herencia. Only 8 rooms all located in a tiny courtyard. Like its... More

Great hotel. Timing for the manager could not have been worse for our particular visit, but he handled it with a very professional attitude and we left happy. The hotel is beautiful and the staff, well spoken and helpful. Apparently, a neighbor of the hotel is obsessed with cats and they were in the midst of ridding the place of... More

My wife and I spent five nights here after staying near the rainforest for several nights. We stayed in H9 French near the entrance and we were surprised at how well furnished and charming the room was when we walked in. The extra high ceilings, the period furniture, the mosquito netting hanging over the bed, the armoire, large bed, chairs,... More

We stayed at this hotel with two other couples pre-cruise and found the staff very friendly and the rooms very well appointed. The staff gave you forms for your continental breakfast with your choices and time that you wished to eat. You breakfast is served on individual trays as soon as you arrive.
