A friend and I stayed here while in Vieques for a wedding. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was at least forewarned about what kind of experience this would be, but I never expected it to be as extreme as it was. As others have stated here, there are people who love this hotel and the experience they... More

A week at the Hix House isn't like anything else. The architectural lofts are painstakingly designed and appointed -- full breakfast is in your fridge and every detail is proactively considered. But it's different -- no windows means you're sleeping with stars and nature in view and within earshot; mosquito nets protect you when necessary (which was rare; there weren't... More

This trip to Vieques my friend and I stayed at the Hix Island House, a lover's paradise which is also a B & B. The difference with this B & B is that the guests cook and serve themselves breakfast. The geometrical shapes of the buildings are fascinating and protecting the environment is their mantra. Nestled in the mountains, the... More

I don’t even know where to start, honestly, except that from the time you park next to the reception house to the time you’re staring at the incredible view from your loft, your jaw will not have closed, and the only words that will cross your lips are “wow” and “Oh. My. Gosh.” Hix truly lived up to everything I... More

How can you describe the Hix Island House as anything but amazing. For one of the first times in my travels, the hotel lived up to the preconceptions and expectations I had created before my trip. To start, our hosts were Diane, Michael, and Joanne, three of the nicest people on the island as far as I'm concerned. Diane checked... More

We stayed at the Hix House for our honeymoon - it was the perfect choice. The Hix House is a sublime experience - the architecture blends seamlesly into the hillside. Waking up to the gorgeous sun on our porch and watching the birds was fantastic. The pool is gorgeous and a perfect spot for a much needed afternoon nap. Brenda... More

Beauty, harmony, style, minimalist luxury and comfort are truly attainable without compromising, intruding on or perverting nature. This is the message eloquently conveyed to us by the Hix Island House. This was our second visit to this unique place and we can categorically state that, at Hix's, we experience the friendliest coexistence of environment and a man made resting habitat... More

We stayed at Hix Island House for our first trip to Vieques and wedding anniversary. We stayed in Loft 3 which had excellent views and was the perfect size for two people. We loved our private outdoor area and shower. We loved Brenda at the front desk and she even helped us with finding the perfect beaches, restaurants, kayaking trip,... More

My boyfriend and I took a week vacation in Puerto Rico, island hopping from the main land to culebra and then vieques. We stayed at 4 hotels on this trip and Hix Island House was by far our favorite. The service was incredible, Brenda (who was amazing, so sweet and helpful) helped get us on a flight to the island... More

I have been traveling for years, and I am always looking for this very special and unique place. Vieques is truly one of the last paradise on earth, and the Hix is the perfect hotel to stay while you are there. From the minute you board the small plane in Fajardo, you will realize that this is a very special... More
