We had stayed at Hector's on our first trip to Vieques, some 16 years ago. I'd remembered it fondly and always knew we'd be back, and it was as wonderful, beautiful and relaxing as we remembered. A beautiful spot above the water, easy walk to one of the many spectacular beaches on Vieques plus a private pool, simple cabins fully and comfortably outfitted with kitchenettes, beach towels and chairs. Mary and Hector are gracious hosts and keep their property up, everything is beautiful and comfortable. It was great to see them again, my kids now grown up, and we all hugged. This is a small place, 3 rooms in cabins on the Hector and Mary's property, private and quiet yet near the beach and walking distance to Esperanza. We had all 3 rooms for most of the week, my brother, niece and her boyfriend and nephew were with us plus me and my 2 adult kids. Can't wait to go back, and we will!

We were looking forward to seeing Jean and the kids again after so many years! They and the rest of the family did not disappoint, the children, now very grown up are as beautiful as we remembered and we truly enjoyed seeing them again as well as the rest of the family. Hoping it won't be another 16 years before the next visit. It was a pleasure to host this great bunch!

Mary and Hector's property is Vieques' best kept secret! Amazing access to the ocean and quick drive to Esperanza-- you really feel like you're on the edge of the world there. We had such a pleasant stay, we wished we'd booked more than one night. As if the amazing ocean view and tranquil landscape weren't enough, the nice A/C, large beds, and blackout shutters made for the best night of sleep we had on Vieques. Mary was so responsive and helpful as we made our arrangements and during our stay; but she went way above and beyond by shipping expensive headphones I'd accidentally left behind! They are lovely hosts-- you can tell they genuinely enjoy sharing their chunk of paradise with guests. It touched us that Mary took interest in our story and our children-- wished we'd been able to spend more time with her and Hector. Can't wait to go back!

Hector's is located on the south side of the island, near Esperanza. The south side is where my favorite beaches are. Esperanza is where the best restaurants and bars are. Hector's property is beautiful. The breeze and ocean views are amazing and relaxing. The beds and linens are great. The bathroom is very nice. The kitchenette has everything you need to reheat or make a simple meal (regrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and plates, cutlery and cups). The pool is wonderful. I love taking a dip after coming back from the beach. They also have beach chairs, towels and coolers for their guests to use. It's great not to have to bring your own. I would definitely go back.

Went there for the end of the high season salsa party. Excellent DJ playing good salsa music. Food truck with tacos, including fish. Beautiful venue with excellent bartender. But the key was the view, which will always be there. Would definitely revisit.
