Everything all the other positive reviews said and more! David, Owen and Dan are awesome hosts and the accommodations every bit of what we wanted and expected. I've stayed in Esperanza before and I believe Amistad's location in Isabella is a better choice. Walk to and from the ferry dock and several restaurants and bars. Thanks guys. Looking forward to pics of the new king rooms!

We just finished our first trip to Vieques. It is an amazing place and Casa de Amistad is a great place to stay. They were excellent when I was inquiring about rooms available and making the reservation. They were also great about answering questions before we even arrived providing tips etc. The house itself is immaculate and so very clean. They are all very nice and we especially thanked David for the tip about going to the beaches. They have beach chairs and coolers, even snorkel gear for a nominal fee. The location is also perfect and they gave us great restaurant recommendations. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks guys!

Can't add to other reviews- but you won't be disappointed! Great hosts, very friendly and helpful, the location is very good. The only review that rates CdA as poor talks about noise- we had a roadside room and there was no noise at all, except the chirp of the coqui when we kept the French doors open :)
Thanks Owen and David for a fantastic honeymoon stay, and we will be returning, God willing!

What can I say but best of the best! Dave, Owen, & Dan are delightful and enthusiastic hosts, the inn is spotlessly clean, and the price cannot be beat! This is THE place to stay in Vieques!!! Close to restaurants in Isabella II, close to the ferry. And did I mention walking to Al's for sunset drinks? LOVE this place!!!!

Room Tip: Even the rooms with baths down the hall are great! Save yourself a few bucks cause it just does not...

My wife and I spent only one night @ Casa de Amistad, but left with a very positive impression. The owners were super friendly and helpful, and the property had everything we could have asked for, including a communal kitchen and t.v. room to a beautiful(if smallish) pool with great outdoor space. Plus we were within walking distance to the ferry to Fajardo, and plenty of bars and restaurants. Next time we'll plan on more than one night!

Like the title suggests, Casa de Amistad was exactly what we were looking for in our 3-day trip to Vieques. Previous reviewers painted such a positive picture of the place, I was actually wary (thinking, too good to be true?). But it turns out Amistad is everything the reviewers have said. Peaceful, clean (really clean!), pretty, friendly, and comfortable. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant and worthwhile - even taking care of us when a computer issue interfered with our booking.

Travelers should be aware that there are a few different areas in Vieques. Amistad is in Isabel II, on the northwest (ish) part of the island, just a 5 minute walk from the ferry terminal. This is the central town for the island - post office, banks, etc. It's not too touristy and the beaches - on the Atlantic - are nice, but not spectacular. On the southern side of the island - the Caribbean side - is Esparanza, which is more touristy (bars, restaurants, adventure companies) and home to some of the most beautiful beaches. If you stay in Isabel, you'll need to drive to Esparanza - expect a $5 pp cab ride. We tended to call cab companies ahead, as publicos don't traverse the roads as frequently as you might think. I'd advise people to think about what they might want to be doing on Vieques so they know which area better suits them.

A lot of people rent cars on Vieques. We didn't, and at times we wish we had ($10 per ride for 2 of us over 3 days probably added up to what a rental car would have cost). That said, we rented bikes for one day and had a great time cycling the island - Isabel-Esparanza was a challenging but rewarding ride. Just beware, as not many people bike and the island roads are narrow and windy.

Be sure to check out some of the nature preserve beaches east of Esparanza - we went to Caracas, which was secluded and beautiful. Pack a lunch as there are no vendors nearby. We also spent an afternoon at the W, which is beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

Lovely People! Clean and safe and comfortable. Plenty of amenities and so convenient. The kitchen was clean and VERY well stocked with appliances,gadgets, good sharp knives and a fine frying pan. (It was just great to NOt have my pancakes stick to a cheap pan!) The hosts were full of great ideas. Our only regret was that we ran out of time to follow them all. The mattresses were very comfortable-not too hard or too soft. I have two suggestions-get some new pillows. Ours were hard and flat. I would also love to see better water pressure in the shower. I had to think long and hard for a constructive suggestion. When we return again, we will be back!
