This is our second year staying at the Villa Coral in Vieques. Beautiful rooms, super sweet owners who are always looking for a way to make our stay perfect! We love Esperanza, and visit the BioBay every night we can. This guest house is above the Melecon, so there's much less noise (unless you count the roosters, that seem to be everywhere on the island! lol).
We stayed last year in Room 5 - large, warmly done, refrig, quiet. This year we started there, and their private cottage Casita Carolina became available during our stay. While we wouldn't normally move once settled in a place that's great, I wanted wireless internet available in the room, and internet in the guest house is only available on the front porch.
The Casita has a full kitchen, which was awesome, beautifully appointed, incredible shower and has an outdoor shower as well! Loved it, loved it, loved it! We are making our plans to return next year and hope the Casita will be available then too!
Room service is twice a week, which we strongly prefer, and they will do your laundry for a small fee, by request. We love to have a small breakfast in, then prepare for a day of snorkeling, either on a private trip (we use Bieque Tours, Eric is a real sweetie, his staff is very fun and caring (David, Pepe, and Orlando) super safe, and super knowledgable - he's our BioBay tour guide as well) or it's a short walk down to the ocean, and local snorkeling is fabulous! We are always delighted by the hundreds of fish at the large pier, and have rented a canoe to go to the in harbor island as well. A nice late lunch at Bananas or Duffy's in our swimsuits, and back to prepare for the evening BioBay tour. A late dinner at one of the bars or fine dining restaurants after the tour, and another fabulous day in paradise!
We don't rent a car - a taxi to or from the Airport was $15, which the hosts will arrange if you prefer. And driving on the island is a bit - dicey. Get insurance if you decide to rent a car! Rentals of snorkel gear, & canoes are on the Melecon, and the guest house has some snorkel gear as well as beach chairs and small drink coolers.
It's clean, it's affordable, it's friendly, and it's quiet. AC in the room for evenings if it's too warm for you. Lots of breasy windows for lazy mornings and afternoons.
We love the Villa Coral!
