Weekend getaway during Holy Week. The owners, Jose and María, are great hosts. Our room had a/c, cable tv and it was clean. Everything that we needed... Definitely, will come back. The only drawback is that it's not close to any beach or good places to eat, so make sure to either rent a car or have a cab number... More

Jose and Maria were so warm and welcoming. They played our wedding song and even toasted to our anniversary. My husband loves the cigars and we had a great night visiting this hidden gem. They made us feel like family arriving home. We can't wait to go again!

I read the older one star reviews and they must've made dramatic improvements since those were posted. The rooms were clean, I felt completely safe, and the owners Joe and Maria were so nice. We were originally just going to take taxis around the island but this hotel is not within walking distance to anything, so Maria called around and... More

We stayed at the Tropical Guesthouse several times because we feel so much at home. Joe and Maria make us feel so welcome and help us to explore the island with their suggestions and experience. Breakfast and coffee are fantastic and we've enjoyed more than a few drinks at the bar. Smoked some fine cigars also! Clean rooms, close to... More

if you want laidback and restful, stay at the tropical guest house... our hosts were genial and more than hospitable. and though the hotel is right in town, the quiet we experienced was a salve to our normally harried lifestyle. tropical guest house is more akin to a parador. i can't wait to go back!

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
