We did a lot of research to find a place on Vieques that would accommodate us. We stumbled upon The Great Escape during our research and made the reservation via email. When we arrived we were extremely surprised at the beautiful location and friendly reception. Donata, the owner of the property is so sweet and could not be helpful enough... More

Situated on a hilltop this place is beautiful with amazing views. You can't see the sea but house less than 10 min away from SunBay beach. The restuarant strip Esperanza is 5 min away. Donna and Gary were very helpful with their suggestions. Breakfast was good. If you like being secluded and away from the crowd this is the place... More

The hotel is set on a hilltop with beautiful views, has a very nice pool and an honor bar to use to unwind after a long day on the beach and exploring the island. Gary the groups keeper... More

I traveled here in January 2014 with my family (ages 23 to 65+) and fell in love! What was truly amazing was watching my dad finally get a break and being able to relax. Dana is a firecracker and very knowledgeable about the area. My family loved and appreciated Gary's hard work and by the end of the stay, we... More

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
