“Best Hotel in Isabel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

If you opt to stay in Isabel vs Esperanza ( little towns about 15 mins apart by car ) stay at Casa. I prefer Isabel as its less touristy. The owners are cool. laid back , and helpful ( rides to airport and to rental car ). They are doing some construction( adding couple more rooms unattached )
but it didn't matter as we were out early in the day and they stop working by late afternoon.
Rooms are all you need , comfy bed, perfect size bathroom fresh towels, linens when you want.
They offer free beach chairs, coolers, ice packs, beach towels!!! Al's bar right down the street and easy , drunk walk home to Amistad at night. ( I was in room 7 only room on the ground floor has private bathroom ) Make sure you rent a car, this is not an island you can get around on without wheels period ! A/C in rooms but we never needed to turn it on, no tv's which is great your on vacation, go outside !

Room Tip: all rooms are great just make sure if you want your own private bathroom you pick a room that has on...

We could not have chosen a better place to stay from the moment we walked in. We arrived late at night and Owen welcomed us and made us feel right at home. You need a vehicle to get to almost all of the beaches in Vieques, so not staying right on the ocean wasn't a problem. Isabel Segunda is a great town with many restaurants and shops. Owen, Dan, and David have clearly put a lot of work into making Casa De Amistad a beautiful guesthouse and are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 5 for one night. It had a separate, but private bathroom which didn't sound great at first, but ended up not being a problem. We switched into room 3 and also loved it. Both rooms were extremely clean and beautifully decorated. There's a great communal kitchen and courtyard where we made lots of friends and ended up hanging out with them outside of Casa De Amistad. Be sure to rent their snorkel gear and bring it to the beach. They also have coolers, ice, beach towels, and chairs to bring to the beach. This is a place I would want to bring my friends when I return to Vieques.

Spent 3 nights at Casa de Amistad, room #4. Wonderful place, clean, everything works and well decorated. The share kitchen is clean, well maintained and fully equipped. The rear pool area is a tropical oasis for relaxation. The hosts are very friendly and informative. Good location where you can walk into town & restaurants/bars. Highly recommend this guesthouse.

We spent a couple of days in Vieques and stayed at Casa de Amistad at rooms 5 and 6. The rooms were VERY cute and new furniture around. We were very excited to meet Dan and Owen and they are exceptional hosts!! Our rooms had private but detached bathrooms which made our stay more interesting (many times I had to walk back to my room to get the bathroom key to unlock it). These two apartments have no TV in them (I'm not sure about the other units), but, you won't need to watch TV if you're in Vieques. The rooms had a mini refrigerator and that's about it.

There's a common area with pots and pans, a full stove, refrigerators, plates, coffee mugs and coffee makers. It's a nice area to say good morning to other guests and also to the hosts. They offer beach towels, umbrellas and small coolers to take to the beach, which is an absolute plus!!

We recommend this place and will be staying here when returning to Vieques.

Vieques was a very interesting island. It was certainly poor and not glamorous at all. That being said, it was an acquired taste. The beaches on the south side, especially Sun Bay, were some of the best we've ever seen. Also, the bio bay tours are incredible. You certainly need to do a bio bay tour (google it!). Anyway, Casa De Amistad was a gorgeous little bungalow tucked away on a quiet, rough looking street in the village of Isabel Segunda. It was perfectly clean and comfortable. We opted for the room with the private bathroom down the hall and didn't mind the slight inconvenience. David and Owen were most gracious hosts, offering valuable insights into the island and making us feel welcomed. I absolutely loved hanging out in the inn between beach visits and at night. Really really loved this place.

My husband and I stayed at Casa de Amistad based on a recommendation of a friend. The property and the staff far exceeded our expectations. We arrived on Thanksgiving and Owen was kind enough to pick us up from the airport because not many cabs were running that night. He also took us to pick up our rental car the next morning and gave us a tour of town. Owen provided great recommendations on beaches and attractions. He is truly a wonderful resource.

We really enjoyed our stay and loved this part of the island.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7. It has it's own entry and patio.

David and Owen were both gracious and very helpful in planning our island activities. The inn has access to a shared kitchen and dining area, outside pool and lounge, sunny porch, and free wifi. The greatest part was perhaps the availability of beach supplies (chairs, towels, umbrella, coolers, snorkel gear, beverages) all at-cost on the honor system. Room #7 was clean, comfortable, and decorated beautifully. Thanks guys! We hope to spend more time with you in Vieques next time!

Room Tip: Rooms with private baths cost only ~$10 more per night. Two new suites, currently under constructio...
