We visited Vieques for the first time this past October, so I treated us to a room with a Carribean view and a balcony - beautiful view! It's quite something to watch the sun set with the horses and roosters roaming around beneath you. We knew pretty quickly we'd stay another night. The property is clean, incredibly attractive and interesting, and the rooms are cool and comfortable. Everything you could possibly need is made available for rental or sale (from snorkles to bug spray to umbrellas), and an honor bar in the library means an evening cocktail is simple to obtain. The staff is friendly and very helpful - any questions you have, any tips you need, they are at the ready to make sure you have a fantastic time. They had us checked in and back out the door to explore, with a cooler of ice, a packed lunch and a map with favorite beaches circled, in record time. The immediate area is very relaxed and "chill", with lots of little restaurants and bars nearby. It was a great home base for our first trip!
- Also Known As:
- Hacienda Tamarindo Hotel Isla De Vieques
- Hacienda Tamarindo Hotel
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vieques’ Hacienda Tamarindo offers 17 very special rooms, each lovingly and creatively designed and decorated by owner, Linda Vail -- her swan song after over 20 years as a commercial interior designer. Each guest room and public space is unique; imaginatively spiced with a lifetime’s accumulation of art, antiques, and collectibles. An ancient Tamarind tree in the lobby atrium majestically rises three stories through the center of the building. Terraces, courtyards, and sitting rooms offer ample space for relaxation and conversation. The Hacienda is perched on a hilltop with spectacular 180 degree views of the Caribbean -- from sunrise to sunset; looking down on the bedazzling, ever-changing myriad of blue, emerald and turquoise waters. Caribbean trade winds and lazy paddle fans keep you cool and comfortable. Here, you can fall asleep to a tree frog serenade and awake to the smell of jasmine on the gentle sea breeze. ... more less
