My husband and I stayed at Hacienda Tamarindo for three nights in May of 2013. We loved it! The breakfasts under the tamarind tree -- memorable! Good food and great service. Our room overlooked a field with wild horses -- and then, in the distance, the ocean. Can't be any better! The staff was friendly and helpful. They directed us to sites and helped us schedule the bioluminescent bay tour. Do come to Vieques! I can't say enough about the beauty of Sun Bay Beach and Hacienda Tamarindo.

Cannot say enough good things about our 7 nights at the Hacienda Tamarindo. We had room #5 which has the private balcony overlooking the pool and the Caribbean. They are exceptional hosts, the entire staff is incredibly welcoming, helpful, and friendly. The property is extremely well kept, the bed and room extremely comfortable, they provide coolers, ice machines and beach chairs free of charge and you can rent snorkel gear, umbrellas and beach toys and they maintain a very nice selection of “drugstore” items such as sunscreen, bug repellent (never needed or used any), Advil, cough and cold, etc. Very handy. They also have a very nice and well stocked honor bar in the library. Breakfasts are included, cooked to order and they have daily specials. We had 7 breakfasts there and were not offered the same special twice which we think was great! You can also order a “lunch to go” the night before for $10 and it will be ready the next morning in an insulated backpack with freezer packs. It’s great for the beach! Colmado Lydia is very close and convenient and we were buying rum and/or mango nectar every day, but they pretty much have all of the essentials. ATM there as well.

Zack the resident sheepdog was the crown jewel and we invited him into our room every day for a visit, a treat, and a cup of water. We missed our fuzzy ones and he held us over.

Thank you for a very wonderful stay. We had read prior reviews and we had high expectations, and you surpassed them. 5.5 stars!

Room Tip: #5 has the balcony. The extra space, views, and double doors were well worth the few extra dollars...

My husband and I just stayed at Hacienda Tamarindo for 5 fantastic nights. The property is absolutely beautiful and well maintained, and the staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. Ivan, especially, gave us great advice about where to go for the best beaches and food, and was always willing to help when we needed anything. The 24 hour pool and honor bar allowed us to feel like we were staying in our own (incredibly gorgeous) home. We had all the privacy and quiet we could possibly want. Also, the breakfast was great! You could order basically anything you wanted and as much of it as you could eat - eggs, hash browns, meats, fresh fruit, fresh juices. The location is perfect - close drive to the Malecon and southern beaches, short walk to Black Sand Beach. Vieques is enchanting and spectacular, and Tamarindo was the icing on the cake. I already feel "homesick" for it!

OK, we all read about the owner! My wife and I had the pleasure to meet the owner and his wife and they are friendly, polite, very helpful and caring people. I really would have liked to sit down with them and learn about when and how they built that place.
Our room was spacious and clean and I cannot copmplain at all about any noise. The breakfast was delicious and abundant and tthe staff very friendly. Of course it helps if you speak Spanish
The hotel has a full bar in the library which is based on an honor system. You just pour yourself one (or four) and mark your consumption in a little booklet. Lovely.
What really amazed me was how they thought of everything: you can borrow beach chairs, coolers and shnorkeling gear for free; you can buy bug repellent, anti-itch creams and hot sauces. They even pack you a picknick if you order it the night before. It comes in cooled backpacks and the sandwiches were great.

I am quite certain that we will be back. Next time in a suite with a view.

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room with (distant) ocean view.

If you are tired of those tourist islands and the "big box" hotels then consider Vieques and Hacienda Tamarindo. This is a cool little place with a limited number of rooms, almost like a bed and breakfast on a tropical island. The home has a lot of charm, yet you have enough separation to avoid some of the noise issues in the B&B settings. The view from our water front room was awesome, the double doors opened wide enough to let the outside spill in for enjoyment. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful each morning and the dining area of the hacienda was open and inviting, allowing for outside and inside seating. The location was great. Not right in the town of Esperanza, where the night time noise and crowds can be a factor, but not too far as well. An easy drive to the great beaches of Vieques.

Room Tip: Unless you really want a balcony, the waterview with the double doors is great. Room 24 is a corner...

We only stayed at this hotel for 1 night, but as soon as we checked in I wished we could be there much longer. The property is large and well maintained, plus it has absolutely gorgeous views of the ocean. When we checked in, we met the manager Ivan, who was really welcoming and even upgraded our room for no cost! We got to stay in room 27, which was a 2 room suite. The master bedroom in the suite had high vaulted ceilings and enormous arched windows all around. All the rooms are nice, but this room is really amazing if you get a chance to book it. It made our stay!

Breakfast is made hot for you--but it's still included. Much better than the usual cereal and fruit. Overall Vieques was our favorite part of Puerto Rico and this is a great place to enjoy it!

Very pretty hotel with a welcoming staff. We were surprised that our 2 bedroom suite was actually one large "L" shaped room which was the size of 2 rooms. One of the twin beds was very uncomfortable to sleep on. Other than that, we really liked this hotel. The breakfast was included and delicious! The pool was very nice and they had snorkeling equipment that was available to rent as well as beach chairs. I would definitely stay here again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Vieques’ Hacienda Tamarindo offers 17 very special rooms, each lovingly and creatively designed and decorated by owner, Linda Vail -- her swan song after over 20 years as a commercial interior designer. Each guest room and public space is unique; imaginatively spiced with a lifetime’s accumulation of art, antiques, and collectibles. An ancient Tamarind tree in the lobby atrium majestically rises three stories through the center of the building. Terraces, courtyards, and sitting rooms offer ample space for relaxation and conversation. The Hacienda is perched on a hilltop with spectacular 180 degree views of the Caribbean -- from sunrise to sunset; looking down on the bedazzling, ever-changing myriad of blue, emerald and turquoise waters. Caribbean trade winds and lazy paddle fans keep you cool and comfortable. Here, you can fall asleep to a tree frog serenade and awake to the smell of jasmine on the gentle sea breeze. ... more   less
