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

My husband and I wanted a relaxing, calm, and different getaway, and I knew as soon as we drove up to the Hix Island House that we'd picked the right place. Serene, undisturbed, do your own thing. Good coffee and fresh bread in the morning, in your room. Have your breakfast and watch the horses and birds and tropical foliage.... More

We stayed at Hix for 2 days in mid February and wish we had stayed longer. There is something very calming about the rooms (units?) themselves that we loved. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is great. Hix is like a luxury hotel without the pretense, crowds, and prices of suites. Unless you are staying at the W (which... More

We spent 6 days on Vieques, and stayed at Hix House in the lower level Adobe apartment. It is slightly inland and up in the hills, a beautiful breeze was everpresent day and night. The modern concrete architecture has open, unscreened windows facing the trade winds, which keeps the apartments cool with flowing air and ceiling fans. Each unit has... More

This place is amazing! Stayed for a yoga retreat for 7 days in casa Solaris and was lucky enough to be assigned to the top floor. Unbelievable views and the sounds of the horse, birds and roosters and frogs is unreal. I think my favorite part was the outdoor shower. Something about the breeze on bare skin with the sun... More

We just returned from HIx Island House and we would definitely go back again. When we booked the trip we were a bit concerned with the "no AC" but shouldn't have been. The way the villa is situated it captures the perfect breeze both day and night. It was wonderfully refreshing. The space is so livable and comfortable and the... More
