Just came from my third visit to this property. It gets better every visit. JoAnne at the desk provides great service and is always on point with her tips and recommendations. Hix is the perfect get away for couples looking to disconnect and relax. It is a beautifully manicured intimate property. Already looking forward to my next visit. Thank you!!!

Friends recommended Hix Island House years ago, and we finally got there. We went off-season so it was extra quiet--practically had the place to ourselves--so quiet, beautiful and relaxing. We were awakened by a rooster one morning and a horse underneath our window another, but it was awesome nonetheless. Definitely for a certain type of traveler as the entire place... More

From the minute you are pulling to their property to walking in the area this place is just the place to be. Vieques is very unique but this place just take you away from everything. Is that place you always dream about or that place you see in a magazine. The rooms are just perfect. Ive staid both time on... More

The staff greeted us with an up grade on our room. We stayed in the Solaris 2 room. It was amazing from top to bottom and front to back. The outdoor shower was incredible and the view was amazing. They give you fresh eggs, fruit, bread, cereal, milk, juice, coffee and jams for breakfast. A great way to start off... More

You know that song well that kinda sums up our experience here. No photos or words can express the feeling of having your own slice of paradise. There're other people staying here but for some reason you feel like you have the place for yourself. Daily they quietly bring you bread, milk, coffee, eggs, fruits and other things so you... More

There's so many wonderful comments to make about Hix House, starting from my first call and speaking with Joann one of the fantastic staff members there who was so helpful that she scheduled our flight from Old San Juan to Vieques. We stayed in Solaris, the views were outstanding! The Loft is spacious and the trade winds made it extremely... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were delighted to get upgraded on arrival. The staff were friendly and helpful. I like that it was very open, you could hear all the wildlife at night, and for us, the mosquito net proved an effective barrier. However, the price we payed for what we got was not matched. The food provided... More

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
