Just got back from a fabulous weekend at the W Vieques.
The positive: Like most have already said, the decor is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. The hotel has been well done and is very romantic for any couple looking to getaway. Definitely an adults only resort, not much for kids to do other than annoy adults looking for some well needed alone time :-). However, there is an adults only beach which is an awesome idea, we definitely took advantage of it and loved every minute of it! Food and drinks were pricey, but expected for a W. We enjoyed both so no complaints here. Rooms were clean & spacious and beds were very comfortable. The staff (Susan) in particular were great and David at the conceirge desk was extremely knowledgable in directing our excursions. The BioBay is a must do.
The negatives: We did not get to enjoy the W Lounge upon arriving or departing the Island, not sure why, but it was closed both times. Check in was a little disappointing too. We arrived at the hotel 9:30am to maximize our anniversary, and although we were told we would be accomodated for early check in as it was off season, (normal time is 4pm), we were not. It was 4:30pm and we were still awaiting a room. At the very least we felt we should have been extended a later checkout time other than 11am which is very earlier, our departure time wasn't until 5:30pm. Like another reviewer noted, we too had a small area in our shower ceiling (room 514) which had some damage due to mildew but I'm sure if reported by housekeeping it would be an easy fix.
All and all, we had a great time and would definitely return again. We won't bring our kids, but will definitely return with some friends.
