My wife & I spent 6 nights at Hix and we both absolutely loved it. We were a bit 'worried' about there being a ton of mosquitoes, but the breeze kept them out of our room and we never even used the provided mosquito net at night. We also loved making breakfast in the kitchen, good bread, eggs, juices, cereal... More

We had booked an earlier stay but couldn't go because I got sick. When we finally got to go there was a miss up but they made good by upgrading us to Casa Solaris. What can I say as always just paradise for us. The service always is beyond expected and one of the most wonderful places to stay in... More

I arrived here with my fiancée and received a friendly welcome and tour of the property. The grounds were well kept and architecture interesting. Having read many good reviews of Hix, we were excited to experience the accommodation. We stayed in redonda loft 2, which was lovely. The spaces are large, and each area of the living space is well... More

Amazing and unique. We loved the hotel. Each room has a open wall facing the wind so the breeze flows through the room. You combine that with the fan and you are mosquito free. So you are inside but not completely. It's a brilliant design. We also loved the outdoor shower and the yoga. The location is great because everything... More

I was really impressed with Hix house. My boyfriend and I came here for our recent vacation and I must say that the house was my favorite part of vacation. We stayed in the Matisse room in the triangle building which I would highly recommend. It is at the end of the road, so it seemed to us to be... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hix House. In particular, the Thursday evening soiree hosted by Mr. Hix and his wife was a lovely touch. They stay on the island in winter months and when the hotel is full, they invite the guests up for a cocktail mixer once a week. It was an extremely welcoming addition to the... More

Our experience at Hix was magical, the perfect spot for our honeymoon. Rustic charm meets modern design on these peaceful jungle grounds. We woke up to horses whinnying during the sunrise and then slept in until noon with the perfect breeze keeping us cool and bug free. Definitely go for a room on an upper level, because the the views... More

I just returned from a girls trip to Vieques and the Hix house was just perfect. I loved the open spaces, cool breezes, beautiful views, fresh eggs, bread and fruit for breakfast, and of course yoga with Jen. The rooms are open air, so there are bugs and you will be awaken by birds every morning, but that is part... More

We stayed in Solaris 2, which must be the best room on the property. The view was amazing, no matter the time of day. The stars at night are beautiful. The room was well appointed, and I loved the smell of the toiletries. The night shirts provided were so comfortable, I had to buy one and take it home with... More

Hix island House is a wonderful place to stay in Vieques. It is quiet but only slightly off the beaten path. The architecture and room design is minimalist. They call it "wabi-sabi" after the Japanese tea ceremony. The rooms are almost completely exposed to the elements with huge windows front and back to permit breezes from the trade winds to... More
