First, the headline: If you're in the market for a vacation experience second to none on Vieques, Villa Uno is hard to beat.
We had two families with three kids in each, ranging from 8-15 years old and went to Vieques for the first time this Easter. We relied largely on previous Tripadvisor reviews in selecting a property for our group. We were not disappointed. The property itself is amazing. From the fantastic views of the Atlantic to the design aesthetic, Villa Uno is truly a unique property. The layout affords a great deal of privacy while also having well thought-out common areas that are conducive to group gatherings. Decorations are top-notch (the beds are VERY comfortable too) and it is also equipped with everything you might need to make a vacation truly enjoyable (although it took the teen boys a day or two to get over the lack of a TV!). The pool was a welcome sight for the kids each night while the adults could relax and read or chat poolside. The pictures online do not do justice to the beauty of the place.
Villa Uno's location in the middle of Isabella Segunda is ideal for shopping and dining. Supermercado Morales is located conveniently a block away, and there are ample choices for dining, both casual and fine.
A strong recommendation if you are going to Vieques for the first time: get a rental car, and book it well in advance. Our trip was booked relatively late and we had trouble in this area, being lucky enough to secure one very late from Martineau Car Rental. They also have our hearty recommendation, by the way. Being on Vieques for a day before we got a rental car and being reliant on the local taxis (Publicos) left us glad to be get the rental. The publicos are just not reliable enough, and want to know how far you are going and how many people you have before committing to a rida (I was not able to figure out the optimal number). We rented an SUV and it was essential to get to some of the more remote beaches (Navio, Mosquito Bay for the Bio-Bay tour).
Overall, Vieques was a memorable vacation and Villa Uno was the highlight of that trip for sure. It has our highest recommendation.
