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! This seemed like a mixed blessing b/c I had poured over the rooms for days to pick the perfect one, but fate put is in the Casita. It was wonderful. I... More

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

We could not have asked for a better experience. From the moment we got there, stating that we had been upgraded, we loved it there. The people at the front from first checking in with Liz, we felt right at home. They were friendly and extremely helpful. Our upgraded room was the dream; had perfect views of the ocean, fully...

We decided to take a Valentines Day Vacation to Vieques. We heard about the bioluminescent bay and were really excited! I have never thought about staying in a place like Hix until my boyfriend convinced me and I read some really awesome reviews! We stayed in Redonda Loft 1. We originally booked the Triangular Matisse, but they upgraded us for... More

Best hotel experience ever. Amazing to see a hotel built upon the Japanese design philosophy Wabi-Sabi. People who give this hotel anything less than 5 stars don't understand what Wabi-Sabi is and are un-fairly comparing it to say a W Hotel experience. John Hix created this living breathing poem of a hotel that is getting more beautiful as it ages.... More

My wife and I stayed here in January 2014 and we are anxious to go back for another stay. The staff was the best I have ever dealt with and very accommodating. We stayed in the loft in the rectangle building and could not have been more pleased. They had fresh baked bread and fresh eggs in our small kitchen... More

On our first trip we had stayed in Rectangular in loft 6, which we really liked, so we weren't certain we wanted to try Solaris, the new house. In the end we opted for Solaris, Loft 1 and although it wasn't as colorful as our last room, we loved it. The long graceful dining table inspired us to cook, though... More

I will echo what another reviewer said - Hix isn't for everyone, but if you are looking for a completely zen-like, peaceful, blend-in-with-nature kind of experience - look no further. The rooms are so simple in design that your senses are aware only of the beautiful surroundings - the stunning views, the sounds of the birds, frogs, and other wildlife... More

Thanks for the review Susan. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to unplug for a bit. And yes we agree, Hix is not for everyone. We find that folks either love it or hate, and that's OK. We hope you come back soon! More
