The staff were unhelpful and rude. Do your self a favor and stay somewhere else. There is no food, they say they give you everything you need to make breakfast, but a few eggs, frozen milk, and child sized packages of special k do not make a breakfast.

We stayed at Hix Island House during the busy NYE holiday. I would advise people to visit Hix/travel to Vieques during a less busy time to ensure the island is not overburdened by tourists. The facilities at Hix are delightfully minimalist and extremely functional. Having a kitchen within our room that was restocked daily with breakfast essentials was an excellent... More

We went to the Hix House twice and loved it. It's the only eco-hotel in Puerto Rico and it's wabi-sabi architecture is amazing. It's about 15 minutes by car from the beach but honestly the grounds are so amazing you sort of forget about the beach! The pool is awesome and there are some great views of the ocean from... More

My husband & I stayed here May3-9 this year to celebrate a long overdue honeymoon after our 16th anniversary. I was leery about the bugs, but willing to try it out for the sake of adventure. We stayed in Solaris 1. This building is the first you see as you drive onto the property & we were on the top... More

Perfect! the only one eco-green hotel in Puerto Rico for a real retreat into the beautiful landscapes of Vieques. Service and accommodation was superb. The beautiful and relaxing green areas, very well maintenance. Less is more, with style... modernism, avant-garde bit at the sane time like a hippie era... I can't wait to repeat!

This is a slice of heaven on Vieques island. The accommodations are beautifully designed from the lovely integration of outdoor showers in each bathroom to the striking contrast of Minimalist designed concrete edifices to brightly patterned linens.Each room with a breathtaking view of the island. Unlike most hotels one feels at one with nature here. Sarah Rose at the front... More

The architecture is amazing. It has an outdoor feel like you are in nature with all the comforts. We stayed in Solaris 4 (2nd floor) the first night and then switched to Solaris 2 (top floor) the rest of the trip. I loved waking up every morning feeling the breeze from outside and looking past my feet at the sunshine.... More

My husband and I returned to Hix Island House after 14 years. We usually like to go to new places, but we enjoyed our trip in 2000 so much, we decided to go back. We're so glad we did! The island (Vieques) is still beautiful, and Hix Island House is still the place to stay. I would recommend the Casa... More

Stunning place. We stayed in loft 5. To be honest it is the room with the best view on the property, the other houses have overgrown tree growth, which is still beautiful but you cannot see the ocean or overlook the island as well. Perfect pool! Nice staff, local people that are very helpful and have lots of ideas to... More

My husband and I stayed at the His Island House just last week for our honeymoon. When we showed up (very early) they told us we had been upgraded!

We're glad you enjoyed your upgrade, and sorry for the confusion on the restocking of your kitchen. We do indeed restock all of the breakfast items daily, including coffee and eggs. I will discuss this with our housekeeping team so that this is not overlooked in the future. Thanks for sharing your stay with the TripAdvisor community and we look... More
