We booked this stay based on the many positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Wonderful hosts, clean room, clean bed, AC, great price, amazing water pressure! We were a little disappointed after reading about the wonderful breakfast that is available, to learn that they had temporarily discontinued breakfast due to being short-staffed. Joe, being the great host that he is, whipped... More

First off, the owners Joe and Maria are fantastic people! When we first arrived, we caught a late ferry ride to Vieques, so we didn't arrive until late 9pm. When we arrived, I thought I could walk from the ferry to the house with suitcases, but that didn't work out too well. Anyways, we ended calling them for help and... More

Clean and comfortable rooms but the main draw is the owners, Joe and Maria. From the moment we walked through the door Joe and Maria went out of their way to make every member of our family feel welcome! They kept going out if their way to help us, even with things we didn't ask about, like finding a cooler... More

Joe and Maria are doing it right on Vieques! They are a wonderful, welcoming pair who made us feel very warm and welcome. The rooms were neat and clean and it was walking distance to beaches, shops and restaurants in the Isabel II district. Bioluminescent bays on other side of the island, a 5 minute cab ride. Overall A+!

Joe and Maria are two of the nicest people that I have met since I came to Puerto Rico. In the last three weeks of traveling here, they are definitely the ones that stick out in my mind as the most welcoming. They understand implicitly what is expected of a good host and they strive to perform. The guesthouse is... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Tropical Guest House! If you are on a budget this is the place to stay. Great value and the service is top notch. Joe and Maria are a lovely couple and went above and beyond to give us a pleasant experience. Good recommendations on restaurants, beaches and bio bay tours. The location is great,... More

As I said Last year on my first visit, if you are looking for luxury other than have a nice clean and affordable room for staying at Vieques, this is not the place. Go to W and pay 300+ a night to have the same spectacular beaches and amenities Vieques has to offer. Joe and Maria are great hosts. I... More

From the moment we walked in the door, my friend and I were well taken care of by Joe and Maria, an incredibly friendly, delightful couple who felt like good friends by the end of our stay. Our room was clean and overlooked a beautiful garden complete with iguanas, papaya and banana trees. Each night and morning we were serenaded... More

We had a great time staying with Joe and Maria. They made us feel extremely welcome after a stressful journey, and were really helpful with organising our trip. They were great company too for a drink in the evening. The hotel is great value for money - it's not a luxury place (nor is it priced like one), but for... More

This was one of the best surprises of our trip. Joe and Maria are the long time friends we hadn't met until we stayed at their place last week. They are great! The guest house was clean, comfortable, and very welcoming. The best part of stay were Joe, Maria, and family, they were incredible. They helped with transportation, eating out,... More
