This is a hard review to write but needs to be told. Upon arriving in Vieques I called the number listed and must have spoken to the owner which was in the states at the time. It seemed my stay was unexpected because she asked how I booked, which I said through Hotels.com. She said that someone would be there... More

When I arrived and called for assistance the long wait in a mosquito infested area was unpleasant. The owner took me up to what she said would be my room(#1)then she said she didn't have the room key. The owner told me I would have to stay in # 6 a very small room with only one window, I went...

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

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!
