“Nice little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

My husband and I were in Vieques last year and we chose Enchanted Garden Inn for our stay. The room was nice and well separated from other rooms. The place was quiet and calm. Violet was a very nice hostess and made sure we felt comfortable. We would love to go back!

If you consider a "back Hoe",mud, major construction daily an acceptable alternative to a garden, you are on your own. The incredible noise level, no lights on stair ways during the evening made our stay impossible to enjoy.No 24 hour manager available. We requested and received our refund for unused nights, no discount on tortured nights used. We found other accommodations on the island that were great with a beautiful pool surrounded by magnificent gardens,

There is an excercise class that starts at 9:30 am that is REALLY Loud and sits directly below the rooms. If you are at the biobay the night before and were planning on sleeping in you won't have a chance. The rooms are nicely furnished with some nice things like an elactric frying pan and microwave. There is never any staff around and they don't come to clean your room. The trash was never taken out and we couldn't find a place to take it too. This is a problem because we saw a few small roaches in the room. We also had wet towels for our entire stay. We tried to call someone to replace them and waited a long time for someone to arrive we finally got sick of waiting and left for the beach with wet towles again.

As hotel guest are our #1 priority here at The Enchanted Garden, upon check-in all guest are informed of our class time and are give the option to have the class canceled or rescheduled for their benefit.

Cleaning service is included in a weekly rental but not for a 2 night rental.

This guest was a party of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) that requested a studio room for 2 nights, (ingnoring the owners recommendation to book 2 adjoining rooms).

The common garbage area for the property is in clear view of the unit but as this guest was awaiting "room service", obvioulsy there was never a thought to remove their rubbish from their room.

Many guest hang their wet beach towels on the balcony or clothes lines on property, why the decision to keep wet towels in the room is a mystery to me.

As these are brand new rooms I am inclined to speculate that any pest in the room were brought to the property by the guest and a direct result of this guest unsanitary behavior.

My wife and I just got back from a heavenly vacation to Puerto Rico and we are already planning our next trip back.

Of the 5 days in PR, we spent 2 days on the island of Vieques. December is the perfect time to visit this tiny paradise. The weather is fantastic, the beaches are awesome and the people are very friendly. Our host Violet, who owns and manages The Enchanted Garden Inn, exemplifies the last part perfectly.

Whether you are on a romantic getaway with your significant other or you and your family are trying to find a quiet place to relax and enjoy what the Caribbean has to offer, I would definitely recommend the Enchanted Garden Inn. The inn is tucked away near the town of Martineau in Vieques, a few minutes drive away from the beaches. While my wife and I were initially disappointed to not be within walking distance of the many lovely beaches that Vieques has to offer, we really enjoyed those early morning drives through the sleepy towns of Vieques. We ended up exploring this island rather thoroughly because of this and we are now glad we had this opportunity.

Vieques has so many secret beaches that you will need a SUV or jeep to explore them all. Finding the beaches is as mush fun as frolicking in the blue-green waters and walking the white sands. If you plan to visit in winter (the busy season), book your accomodation and transportation atleast a month in advance.

This property has studio and multi-bedroom lodgings. We have already promised her that we will be back with friends next winter. Her prices are reasonable, ranging from 120-150 (total) per day for the studio.

Hope you have as much fun as my wife and I did on our trip there.

We stayed at Enchanted Garden over Christmas of 2007. The entire experience was beautiful. Enchanted Garden is located on a nice piece of property with mango, banana, and coconut trees. At night, you fall asleep to the harmonic sounds of tree frogs and crickets. The rooms in the house are spacious and clean. The house has a nice sized kitchen for meal prep. There is also on site laundry and an outdoor shower (there is a nice indoor shower for the more modest). Violet, the owner/inn keeper was a joy and very helpful with tips and interesting perspectives on the island. We would love to return to Vieques and Enchanted Garden.

In November of 2006 my entire crew for a photo shoot stayed at Violet's, "Enchanted Garden Inn." Violet went over and above the call of duty and played "House Mom." to our crew. She could be seen loading and unloading the dish washer at times or telling us where to find something on the island or calling friends to try and find us a prop we needed or even a doctor! Her Inn had all the amenities that we required, was spacious with enough beds for us, and could accomodate our reality-show-photo-shoot-crazyness....
I highly recommend the Enchanted Garden for larger families and groups or renting the studio apartment for the solo traveler or couple. I've now stayed at 4 different places on Vieques. I can confidently say that the price and service you get from Violet is amazing. (The beds are really comfy too!) If you are a couple, looking for a super high end, romantic, pool side or quiet ocean side getaway, the Enchanted Garden is not this type of vaccation. (This is not a criticism, just an observation for those of you looking to crack a bottle of wine and listen to the ocean or take a midnight dip in a pool. And you can still crack that bottle of wine on the patio at Enchanted Garden!) There are those places on the Island, but note that most of those places do not accept children. If you've done your reading, you know that Vieques is a place like no other, a true caribbean experience, off the beaten path. There are no "Club-Meds" here! But there are grocery stores with bars in them as you walk in! (That's right folks, have a beer before you pick up those "Cherios!" ) There are locals riding bare back down the street and beaches only accessible by 4-wheel drive vehicles. At the "Enchanted Garden," you will hear frogs outside your windows at night. You will have everything you need for your family or group, at a great price! Do me a favor, just keep Vieques, "Our little Secret." But do call Violet and see if she has room for you!
