I stayed at the Vistamar (casita 3), the closest to the sea. To start with, the path to get there is initially nice but the final stretch is a dirt, bumpy and narrow road so it was not the perfect welcome. When you get there though, you cannot avoid a drooping jaw. The view is amazing and the horses around... More

We visited Hector's by the Sea for two nights before going to another rental property for a wedding. We had inquired about staying in February via email and Mary was very prompt to respond to my emails and made the booking process very easy. I'm glad we booked early as they book up quickly, even in the low season. Mary... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Hector's by the sea--and would have spent more if we could do it all over again! The experience starts with a fairly bumpy road down a hill towards the ocean..once inside the gate at Hector's, you are greeted with green, open spaces and peacefully grazing horses. I love that when designing/constructing their... More

Recently returned from Hector's By the Sea and I have to say I agree with all the previous glowing reviews. Hector and Mary are very friendly and accommodating - made us feel right at home. They were there at the knock of a door to answer any questions we had, but allowed us to explore their property and enjoy the... More

My husband and I stayed at Hector's from 7/9 through 7/15 (yes, sadly, we just left yesterday). Believe all these reviews. It really is THAT nice. Mary gave me a great impression right from the start as she handled all my first-timer questions with great finesse. She gave us a terrific introduction to the whole place as soon as we... More

Just got back from our first stay in Vieques - a three night paradise experience at Hector's! Mary and Hector are so accommodating and nice, there is absolutely no way you could say anything bad about them or their facilities. The private beach on the property was a nice way to end our evenings, and the sunset over the mountain... More

From the very beginning at booking our reservation Hector & Mary Matos have been amazing. This was our first time in Vieques and were a little apprehensive about what to expect on the island. Mary allowed me to email all of my questions or concerns to her. Every time she put my mind at ease about our trip, ( ferry... More

I'm long overdue in sharing our experience while visiting Hector's By The Sea last spring. My husband and I wanted to get away from it all for a long birthday weekend and couldn't have chosen a more special, beautiful and perfect place to forget the hustle and bustle of work life to find paradise. The great reviews are 100% accurate... More

My wife and I stayed in The Mango casita in late March/early April. We couldn't have been happier. It's located at the back of the property and elevated. The elevation makes for great views of the entire property and of course the ocean. Comfortably appointed it's perfect for two people to just relax. It does have A/C, a small microwave... More

What an awesome experience staying at Hector's April 1st-April 4th. We stayed in the Casita Vistamar, the one closest to the ocean and the horses were just steps from our room. We explored up & down the rocky shore & saw crabs, a live large conch shell, & wild horses. Our room was large and bright with a microwave, fridge,... More
