Great Escape was just that - an escape from the cold and stress - to a beautiful and relaxing bed & breakfast. Our room was very comfortable, the grounds and pool were very pretty. Dana was very helpful and helped us choose where to go for snorkeling, or quiet beaches. Gary was also accommodating and worked hard all day keeping... More

Great Escape was the pinnacle of our stay in Puerto Rico. We spent 4 days in Vieques and another 3 in San Juan. Great Escape was blissful beyond all words. I cannot express enough how much we enjoyed Dana and Gary. They are wonderful. They help to accommodate al of your needs. By the end of our trip, we felt... More

So wonderful that we just had to change our itinerary to stay one more day. Donna was very accommodating and we didn't want to leave. Gary was the best. He took great care of our needs and worked hard everyday to make the place perfect! Must stay place...you won't regret!

Great Escape Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place to get away. My future-fiancée and I were attending a wedding for my best friend at another hotel in Vieques. We decided to book based on price and for the first time it worked out well for us. Great Escape is the perfect combination of close location to the other hotels,... More

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to stumble on this lovely and very reasonable hotel after a lot of indecision on where to stay. Having never been to Vieques previously we weren't sure what to expect. What I can say is this, do not stay on the boardwalk, it's noisy and crowded. Better to stay at the Great Escape,... More

We spent five days at the Great Escape. Management was very accommodating and helpful. The room was immaculate and the grounds are very pretty. The pool is very clean and refreshing. The breakfast was simple: eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee. They rented chairs and snorkeling equipment - nothing fancy, but totally operable and useful and at a great... More

The hotel is pretty clean and the breakfast is not bad. Rooms are clean but the mattress sags. Don't bother paying more for an upgraded room because the owner doesn't respect that, giving you whatever room is available at the time. The owner, Dana is nice but she's always there making a lot of fuss and destroying the peace and... More

Great Escape is a simple guesthouse. It's located on a beautiful property surrounded by well manicured greenery and gardens. The handyman there maintains the wonderful property and he is a very hard worker and very nice. The owner of the property is Dana (pronounced like Donna), she is extremely hands on and is always there if you need her. Very... More

Overall, I LOVE Vieques and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Be sure to set your expectations before arrival, it's nice but not luxury. Other reviews give great descriptions, a few things to add: - You want a car, they usually book up before hotels are full - If you don't have a car, you need ATT cell coverage... More

We didn't love Vieques but we loved Dana and her co-worker Gary and their lovely Bed and Breakfast. They will take care of you and make you feel at home. The room was perfect and the grounds were heavenly. Would highly recommend staying there! My daughter still talks about Dana and Gary (she's 2 and 1/2 years old).
