Hector's by the Sea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We found a secluded getaway for two. Hector’s by the Sea is exactly what we were looking for. There are only three rooms available so it makes this the perfect getaway. Hector and Mary made us feel welcome immediately. The grounds and beautiful view were breathtaking. There was also a hot tub and pool, but we spent our time either in our cabin or on the beach. The room was lovely and the bed so comfortable, being able to hear the water put us right to sleep at night. Our room was about $120.00 if I remember correctly.

We stayed at Hectors Aug 9-11,2012 after researching it here on Trip Advisor we were not disappointed. It was not a 5 star resort ,but it was a very nice and unique place to staywith a beautiful view of the ocean. As we pulled up the driveway we were thankful for our Jeep and not sure we were headed to the right area but we came to a gated area and let ourselves in as we saw the horses out wandering the property.Mary came and greeted us and showed us the property, we had a little fridge that was nice to keep drinks cold, they had beach chairs,a cooler and beach towels that you could use during your stay which was very convenient. In the evening we came back to the pool and jacuzzi that they heat up at night so you can sit out and relax. Only problem is they cannot accomodate more than 4 people in a room so if we go back with our family were out of luck!

Thanks to all of you who gave a thorough review of this place. Your reviews helped us pick the BEST place to stay in Vieques. The moment we drove down the rugged road to Hector's gate, we already knew two nights wasn't going to be enough. As soon as I got out of our car, I couldn't stop smiling. The place was just amazing! Living in New Jersey, the complete seclusion of this place from everything was perfect! The fact that there was only three bungalows to accomodate (the most three couples at a time) made it even better! The grounds was simple, open and BEAUTIFUL! Oh, and did I mention your view is the ocean?! The photos supplied here on Tripadvisor are great, but actually being there can't compare. Owner's Mary and Hector are one of the nicest, welcoming people you'll ever meet. We had a great time chatting with them one night at the gazebo over drinks, and it felt like we knew them for a long time. Just such a sweet couple! They even arranged for a private ride for us once we got back to the mainland. There's tons of wonderful things to say about Hector's. When we return, we'll definitely stay longer. Vieques Island was an altogether an unforgettable experience! Choosing Hector's for our stay made it even more special.

Room Tip: The Mango Room is more private in a sense that it's a separated bungalow, but stay in the other...

Me and my boyfriend just got back from PR and can't stop talking about our vacation. We both agree that if we had it to do all over again theres only 2 things we would have changed, we would have stayed in Vieques for at least 4 days instead of two and of course we would stay at Hector's. Their property is beautiful and private. Whats not to love, it's quiet, beautiful, theres a pool, a hot tub, beach, and a very cute and comfortable room and it is walking distance to the restraunts. Mary and her husband were very very sweet and informable. I cut my ankle on a rock and Mary was sweet enough to Dr it up, you don't get that at a resort. We walked about ten min to black sand beach from Hector's it was fun and super cool to see. The other regret was renting a scoooter.....don't rent a scooter, bad idea, the roads are in bad condition and you will never make it to the beautiful remote beaches such as navio and media luna! You can rent a Jeep for about the same price as a scooter.

We stayed at Hectors by the Sea for a one-of-a-kind vacation. From making the reservation to getting a rental car to buying food and anything else we could think of, Mary and Hector were ready and willing to help. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony in the second floor unit watching the sun set over the ocean, while waves crashed down below. The serenity of the place was just amazing. We enjoyed lounging in the pool looking out over the ocean while wild horses grazed near us in the fields. The breezes were constant so we didn't even need an air conditioner at night, instead falling asleep to the sound of the water and the birds in the mango trees. Absolutely loved it!

Hector's is a beautiful inn by the sea with fantastic views. I went here several years ago on a trip with my family and we still agree it may have been our favorite place yet. I loved lounging in the cloth hammock on the patio and reading, or watching the horses eat fallen mangoes as I swam around in the pool.

The casitas are simple but beautiful with tile flooring and comfortable beds. The owners were fantastic and made sure to check up on us if we needed anything...and Hector showed us the best way to peel a mango.

There's a beautiful view of the water, but for beach going I'd recommend further down the island unless it's very low tide. Next door there was a very upscale hotel that was fun to eat at, but for rooms I'd choose Hector's hands down. A great getaway from a hectic lifestyle, where nature takes precedence (along with peace and quiet).

Mary & Hector are the best!!! They were very attentive and concerned by our many inquiries even though we were only there for two nights. They spent time making sure we were oriented. It was magical! We were there just after a terrible storm and there were fresh, ripe mangos all over the ground. Hector made sure to bring us a couple of really good ones and they were the best I've ever had. I really want to go back! Why did I ever leave?

Room Tip: Just get one!
