We spent four nights in Redonda Loft 3. Hix Island is a very unique property designed to take full advantage of the views and the cooling tradewinds of Vieques. We loved the modern, simple design combined with luxury touches - like Frette linens, towels and bathrobes. Each loft has a kitchen and an outdoor shower. The best part about our stay was the daily breakfast - it somehow magically appeared while we were out - the 'fridge was stocked with fresh fruit, eggs, juices, and homemade bread. The bread was wonderful, so fresh and delicious.
The pool is fabulous and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. In the office there is an honor bar where you can stock up on other supplies - cheeses, sausage, crackers, soft drinks - and all very reasonably priced.
Insects/mosquitos were not an issue for us, the breezes and the fans helped keep the bugs out. There was mosquito netting over the bed, but we didn't need it. In addition to the fresh food, the loft was stocked with paperback books, beach chairs, beach towels, candles, an in-room safe, and snorkeling equipment and board games were available for checking out at the office.
Keep in mind that there are no TVs and no phones. This kind of hotel is not for everyone. If you need to be near the action, stay in Esperanza. Hix Island is quiet and relaxing.
We can't wait to visit Vieques and stay at Hix Island House again. Did I mention the bread? Dear god, go just for the bread.
