Casa Alta Vista has character. Clean, safe, convenient and Mark is awesome. He knows all the best secret beaches and even arranged for a borrowed rental car when the island agency was all out of cars due to last minute booking. It is not a luxury hotel by any means, but if you want that then stay at the W... More

After receiving very strange, one-word responses from the staff when trying to book a reservation via email I decided that I would not bother staying here as the staff could learn a thing or two about proper customer service.

Very thankful to have stumbled on to this place and the owner, Mark. He really helped us out at the last minute. He was very nice, accommodating and full of excellent guidance to maximize your time in Vieques. The room we stayed in was comfortable We were there for adventure on the island so we were only in the room... More

Mark the owner of Alta Vista was very helpful with tips of what to do and where to eat, gave us a late checkout, gave us beach towels to use on our check out day, called a cab to pick our party of nine for the Ferry and made our stay comfortable. The hotel is average but cheap, clean and... More

We had nothing particularly good to say and nothing particularly bad to say about this place. It was a decent low-budget option. It's not the reason you're coming to Vieques, but it shouldn't ruin your trip in any way. If you're looking to stay in Vieques and don't want to pay a lot, and you're not too worried about modern...

Not a great place--the lobby reeked of mold; our shower had no hot water; the roof leaked. Why three stars? It's quiet, cheap. and we loved the rooftop patio. Mark is a nice guy. Evidently he's trying to sell the place. I thought this was a recent thing, but reviewers from over a year ago said that he was trying... More

he place looked nice, and I had a family member that stayed there and enjoyed it. I called and made a reservation. I also sent an email to confirm everything right before our trip. We arrived at about 7:00 at night on the day of our reservation to discover the building locked and nobody around. We called both of the... More

When I visited in March 2012, Alta Vista was on the market for sale so I'm unsure how everything is now. At the time, Alta Vista was able to put me up the same day when Bananas lost my reservation. Alta Vista was also at least $15 cheaper per night than other Esperanza lodging. Since I was solo, I stayed... More

Pros: The room was clean and the air conditioning worked well, which REALLY makes a difference to sleep quality. Bed was comfortable, pillows were adequate. Location is great--far enough from the action in Esperanza for it to be quiet, but definitely close enough to walk to and from restaurants and bars. Rooftop patio is an awesome place to sit and...

The hotel was a good location, budget price, and fairly clean. Don't expect a high-dollar type facility if staying here. Interesting note: We rented several rooms and discovered that our hotel key actually opened up the other rooms. Good thing the entire area is generally safe. We loved the island and will definitely return. Bars and restaurants are about a... More
