We stayed four nights on Vieques, at 3 different places, and spent our last night at Tradewinds, in a downstairs room (#7 I think). Great place, nothing fancy, but very comfortable, and ron by awesome folks. Sue was a gem; one of those people that you remember for a long time, and always hope that you are lucky enough to... More

Location location location!!! The view/location is unbelievable, and though the food was overpriced and just ok, it was worth the price of admission just for the outdoor seating overlooking the bay

While waiting for our reservation time, we stood on the Malecon across the street & watched a most magnificent sunset ( see photo) Trade Winds has a lower level gift shop ( high prices! ), a guesthouse, and an open air balcony restaurant. Locals recommended Trade Winds for lobster. Sooo, wanting lobster, I ordered it broiled. Their cost was $1.50... More

We went for breakfast and received the rudest and crappiest service ever. We were 10 in the group and she decided it was too much work to place us together. Then you had to take coffee on your own which was instructed in a rude manner. Then after repetition of careless and irritated service she decided to charge us with... More

Can't say enough about how enjoyable our dinner experience was here from our waitress River to the service and the selection and quality of the fish entrees. Sat on the second level porch and watched an incredible sunset until a bus came to pick up some patrons and decided to park right below our table while leaving the engine running.... More

On our first morning we stopped by for a nice breakfast, and the beautiful views of the ocean. Nice open air location. Food was fresh and yummy, wait staff was friendly and helpful with advice. Worth a visit.

Reliable, Excellent Grilled Fish every time. Make your reservations early for the Malecon's most popular restaurant.

Trade Winds, which sits on higher ground at the end of the Malecon, is unlike the other nearby seafront venues in many ways. I enjoyed sun-downers with a view in the company of other sailors, as well as inventive seafood meals with a healthy local influence. Breakfast (alas with not many gluten-free options) is served at reasonable price and accompanied... More

Trade Winds is at the edge of El Malecon (the boardwalk in Esperanza, Vieques). We managed to visit it twice for breakfast. It was fantastic. I'd had a bit of an argument with a pair of clippers before heading on vacation, so I needed a corrective haircut. I'd done some research and our waiter confirmed it. Best haircut of my... More

We ate and drank at Trade Winds several times during our stay. Our first visit wasn't our best due to a snappy (rude) hostess telling us we may not be served food (we wanted to sit in the bar area) because they "may be too busy". It was our first night there and it was late and it certainly wasn't... More
