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

My then fiancé and I stayed at Hector's in June of 2012 (just catching up on reviews I needed to do now). The overall experience was amazing. I am usually a person who will only stay at chains and only highly rated B&B, Hector's did not disappoint. The best part of the place is that it is an intimate experience.... More

Summary If there was one place in Vieques that combines peace, relaxation, comfort—yet with proximity to almost everything of note on Vieques—it would be Hector's. The Good - Pool, hot tub, short stroll to (an essentially private) beach - Quiet, and only a 5 minute drive to Esperanza - Clean, comfortable, room; kitchenette; small dining area The Bad - The...

We stayed at Hector's in May 2012 and had the best trip! We were in the second story apartment and loved the ocean views from the hammock. We had a quick stop at the grocery market in Esperanza and then the room was equipped with everything you needed for breakfast in the morning then we were close enough to town... More
