My wife and I stayed in The Mango casita in late March/early April. We couldn't have been happier. It's located at the back of the property and elevated. The elevation makes for great views of the entire property and of course the ocean. Comfortably appointed it's perfect for two people to just relax. It does have A/C, a small microwave and frdge. Also beach chairs and a cooler are provided. We were able to visit the other units and they are more spacious and would be better suited for multiple couples, groups, etc. There is a pool/hot tub available and they are kept clean and comfortable. To the right of the horse corral there's a path down to the beach, although it's not really a swimming beach it's great for walking and exploring. If you walk far enough you'll come upon a black sand beach, which is great for swimming and secluded enjoyment of the perfect weather and water. Also on the property is a dining/catering facility where a local chef cooks for the public on Sunday and Monday nights. It was arguably the best meal we had while on Vieques. Highly recommended bluff side dining. There is also a walking trail over to Blue Horizon, which is the neighboring resort. It's very nice as well. As you will become very familiar there are horses all over the immediate area as well as corralled on the property. They are friendly and will accept grass picked for them. There is also one feisty, lovable resident cat prowling the grounds. I affectionately gave him the nickname El Guapo. While sitting by the pool it wasn't uncommon for him to jump up on my lap and hang out. He wasn't annoying to any extent, just present and willing to take a scratch if offered. Finally, the hosts Mary and Hector. They live on the property and are available at any time. They were most welcoming and made us feel at home. I really enjoyed their company out by the pool and in the screened gazebo. They were more than willing to sit down and direct us to points of interest on the island and suggest options for dining, recreation and shopping. I was very happy to meet them and hope to keep in touch with them. If you can't tell I'd recommend Mary and Hector and Hector's by the Sea and I'm hoping I'll make it back to visit with them soon.
