I couldn't have asked for more! This was the most relaxing place that I have ever stayed. Mary and Hector have the perfect place to get away from everything. It is close to dining and has access to the beach. There were other people staying there while we were, but you wouldn't even know it. I'm already looking forward to... More

Pros: Just a couple of minutes drive to the main strip. Solitude, it's very peaceful. With just 3 little casitas, it's an ideal couples get away. Easy walk down to the beach. Kitchenette Cold A/C, though in Dec with the ocean breeze it's nice to open the windows. Mary is a wonderful hostess who obviously cares very much about her... More

We just got back from Vieques and simply cannot wait to return. This property and Hector and Mary were a big reason why. First I must say, I read a review of no ocean view from the windows and something about animal noises with total confusion- those guests must have had the windows closed because there is an ocean view...

We stayed in June for our honeymoon in the Mango Room which was perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch looking at the ocean and watching the horses graze. The mango trees were lovely and we enjoyed watching the horses eat the mangoes. Hector and Mary were friendly and we enjoyed talking to them.... More

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
