My husband and I flew to Isla Vieques to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The island is breathtaking, home of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We chose to stay at the Hacienda Tamarindo and we were so glad that we did. Our room was beautiful and huge! We were adjacent to a library with a computer for guest use. The grounds and pool are immaculately kept with wild horses roaming in the distance. The breakfasts were tasty and plentiful, and the honor bar was well stocked with drinks and snacks. We took advantage of the beach lunch one day and equipment rental all three of the days that we were there. This was a great convenience! My husband and I took advantage of a promotion that included a jeep and a paddle board lesson. This was quite a bargain and great fun! We try not to visit an area twice but I would make an exception to revisit Hacienda Tamarindo.

They seriously have thought of everything! The honor snack/drink bar was perfect after a long day at the beach. The beaches are very remote and they offer to pack you a lunch to take to the beach in an insulated back pack! On top of this they have umbrellas, chairs, snorkel gear, etc. for rent. The breakfast is 5 stars and it comes with the room for free! The first day I had stuffed french toast. The only negative I have is that the french toast was the 'special' of the day and I wanted to have it all week long. Look no further. Stay here!

I only wish I had stayed longer. I booked a great package deal which included a Jeep rental, but it was only for 3 nights, and part of the deal was to go to the bio-bay. However, be warned that the bio-luminescent bay is only open to tourists on the weekends, because the bay has recently dimmed. Our hosts were very accommodating, and let us use a credit for the cost of the bio-bay tour towards the honor bar and beach rentals. This was a great way to indulge in a very pampered stay.

The owners of the Hacienda carefully considered what their guests would like to do while on the island, and made every effort to allow guests great convenience to make their vacation a breeze. We loved packing light and knowing that most of our needs were already accounted for! Beach umbrellas, snorkel gear, bug spray, beach chairs, beach towels, picnic lunches, etc.

The room was beautiful, comfortable, and clean...and I think we had a basic room, but still it was extremely nice! One complaint was that the cleaning service came by before we left the room for the the day. They knocked, and we asked for a minute, and instead of leaving they went around the side where the room has slatted blinds and looked inside. It was a bit invasive, but I think they must not have heard us.

Their dog is adorable, and they have a great sense of humor. The pool overlooks the ocean. What else...oh! Esperanza Riding Company is just down the the driveway, you can walk there and grab a mango on the way, and I would highly suggest it. Breakfast was fantastic and very filling. The place is magical. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. I wish I could go back!

My wife and I came to Vieques for our babymoon, the experience was perfect. The owners Burr and his wife for so gracious and welcoming. The rooms where not of the most luxurious but just perfect, we had a little gako in our room that was eating the mosquitos. Everything we asked for was provided, from rental beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas for our beach excursions. The place feels like a B&B in Vermont very cozy and welcoming. Great little bar area for some late night drink available for guest. The breakfast is spot on. We spend the days beach hoping explored all corners of the island, but that required a 4x4 wish i recommend everyone rents if you want to really enjoy the beauty and desolate beaches.
I want to go back now

Room Tip: Rent a 4x4 explore as many beaches as possible

I can't say enough amazing things about this place! From the beautiful views, the wild horses, and the amazing breakfasts, it was a perfect retreat. Ivan was very honest and trustworthy as a host at the hotel who gave us great advise and help with everything we needed..we love Ivan! Everything you need is available. The honor bar is a great system for a late night cocktail or snack. And the pool is beautiful. And the hammocks are a great spot for an afternoon nap. Can't wait to get there again!

my family of five stayed for four nights in the casa linda at hacienda tamarindo. it was fabulous. just great. exactly what we wanted. the breakfast each morning was lovely. the staff was all helpful and attentive. the pool and the hammocks by the pool made for lovely afternoons for us. the beach towels left in our room each day were perfect for toting out on our daily excurisions (sailing! snorkeling! paddleboarding! beaching!) our casa linda was a perfect way for the five of us to be together, though not too together. special touches were the wild horses outside my window, the honor bar with drinks and snacks, the beach supplies to rent (beach umbrella), borrow (beach chairs) or buy (we went through a lot of sunscreen.) ... great vacation destination!

Affordable, clean, very good service. Very good location. 3 min drive to cafes and bar. not beach front but amazing view. Not a hotel but W Hotel is not worth the money trust me. Family owned and has the charm. I will go to this place again. perfect location. This place is nicer than blue horizon or the rest. Hix island house(other lodging) has no airconditioning and has poor location. They serve breakfast everyday free. There is wifi free. I have researched other places, location and price, nothing can beat hacienda tamarindo. the place is safe and stunning views. Pool is also clean. Pool area has wifi as well. I looked at W hotel but the place is a rip off. 60 dollars resort fee for nothing. Hacienda is close to esperanza/malecon which I think is way better than the other town Isabel II. This place is highly recommended.

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
