“Wonderful Stay at Vieques for the Bio Bay tour”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

The rooms were clean, fantastic location and what an awesome Host. Paul the owner makes your whole stay experience even better. He picked us from the ferry terminal, Drove us to the beach and also dropped and picked us from the tour location for bio bay. Paul was very helpful and he makes sure your stay at his B&B is a fantastic experience. We had to take an early morning ferry back to the main island, Paul made sure he made breakfast before we left. The bathrooms were clean. Vieques is a nice and quite place. Will definitely stay with Paul if we go back to Vieques.

Excellent value. Room is basic, but the reason to come to Vieques is to be outside on the island and beach chairs and towels are included. Having a car or other transportation is essential and Paul has an SUV available for each room. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable (great sheets, Paul!). Paul was very accommodating of our early arrival and late departure, allowing us to fully enjoy all our days there.
Unlike other reviewers, we did find that there was quite a bit of traffic at night, especially on Sunday. We kept the windows open, so the road noise was noticeable. Light sleepers might want to run the A/C and close the windows.
Location is great, near to everything being in the middle of the island.
Paul was a good host and available whenever needed.
Overall, a good experience and we are glad we stayed at EdM.

Room Tip: Verde has a full size refrigerator with freezer. Azule has a mini-fridge with a tiny freezer compar...

We stayed at Estancia de Manzanares for a week in October. I think the other positive reviews were right on the mark. This B&B is a comfortable, safe, convenient and pleasant place to stay and a remarkable bargain for the deluxe package (which includes the use of an SUV). The food was wonderful and Paul was a gracious host for our family of three. We found the location to be excellent because it is near the entrance to the reserve on the east end of the island and also convenient to make trips into Isabel Segundo and Esperanza. As a bonus we got a kick out of the visits in the yard by the horses and chickens. Vieques is a wonderful place and when we go back we will plan to stay at Estancia de Manzanares again.

Room Tip: I think the rooms are pretty much identical.

Norman,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us here at Estancia de Manzanares, it was a pleasure having you and your family stay here.

One of the best things I can read from a review is that you would stay with us again and should you find yourself back in paradise I truly hope you'll stay with us again.

One of my great pleasures in having this B&B is getting to meet so many people from all over the world and you and your family are no exception.

Again, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule.

Safe Travels Always,
Paul

We went to Vieques for the bio bay tour and only needed a place to stay for 1 night. Paul is very helpful and friendly. He provides transportation from/to the airport/ferry terminal and even gave us a ride to Esperanza! They have different packages to suit your needs. The rooms are clean and spacious. Oh, and they are horses walking around!!!

Paul was extremely helpful with anything we needed. Accommodations are basic, but you really don't need much more with the beautiful island at your finger tips. We went to the local fish market and cooked a gourmet meal in our studio. I suggest getting the package that includes the car for ease of exploring! We will be back!

My partner and I stayed at Estancia de Manzanares B&B for a week while on vacation in Vieques. A clean and safe place to sleep and keep our things while we explore and a good value are important to us, we don't require room service or a daily sheet change. We also often require a full kitchen in case the restaurants aren't good about accommodating my food allergy so this was a great place for us. It was exactly as other's have described, as was the owner, Paul, who provided transportation to and from the airport. He lives downstairs and was therefore available anytime we had a question, but was in no way intrusive. As an added bonus, he has rescued two adorable puppies that welcomed us every time we came home by wagging their tails.

The room and bathroom were super-clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. There were ample clean and soft bath towels. The kitchen had a full sized refrigerator, microwave, oven, and was stocked with dishes, cups, and cutlery. The bed was large, comfortable, and had soft sheets. There were many TV channels with perfect reception and the wi-fi was adequate. In addition to providing everything we needed in the room, Paul also provided two beach chairs, a cooler, and snorkel gear for two.

EdM is conveniently located on a main road in the center of the island. It is very close to the NWR entrance, a few minutes to Esperanza, and ~10 minutes to Isabel II. While it is on a main road it was quiet and we had no trouble sleeping, the horses were actually louder than the cars, and we felt very safe.

We deposited several pounds of sand into Paul's Mitsubishi Montero while we were there, from getting in and out of the vehicle at the beach and added a scratch or two from the thorny bushes that sometimes obstructed the road. I was so glad we didn't have a traditional rental where they would charge us for each one. Paul was so cool about the wear and tear we put on his vehicle, and about our returning the SUV with tons of sand inside and covered in mud on the outside.

EdM was part of why we had a great, and very affordable, vacation. The price wass unbeatable and it had everything we needed. I would, and have already, suggest EdM to friends and family heading to Vieques.

Room Tip: I think both rooms (Verde and Azul) are practically identical. Both on the second floor of the hous...

Thank you so so much for taking the time to review your stay and I must say, when you write a review, you really write a review-which is very much appreciated.

I'm happy you found the room clean, it is important to us that we have a clean & comfortable place and glad you enjoyed and used the galley kitchen & supplies. It can be tough sometimes here for guest who have specific food allergies which is one of the reasons we put the galley kitchens in the rooms.

The pups TiTi and TiTo say "rugh rugh" and I know they enjoyed the attention the two of you showed them, they love people and getting attention.

I hope your future travels have you coming back to our lil island of paradise and I hope you will choose Estancia Manzanares upon your return. Thanks again for taking the time to write such a detailed review.

Safe Travels,
Paul

Great place to stay for those on a budget. Location is super - right down the road from a beautiful beach and just south of Isabel II. For those hesitating - you really need a form of transportation on the island no matter where you stay. Scooter, car, something! You will need to drive to everything, but the island is easy to navigate and there are no long distances. Paul was a great host - very helpful and knowledgeable about the best places to go and super accomodating about my no dairy/no gluten dietary restrictions. He made the most amazing egg/sausage muffins for me and a spinach/egg omlet I am still dreaming about! He even drove us to the early morning ferry with egg muffins and coffee to go - a dream host!!! We feel very spoiled and well taken care of.

The beach kits were nice to have, though I would suggest an umbrella added to the mix. We had umbrella envy on the beach and could not find a place to rent one - sun gets really warm - and you want to enjoy every minute of beach time but hard to do with no umbrella.

The bed was huge and comfy, nice hot water, clean room - only issue was the AC didn't really cool the unit down at night. It is helpful to keep the bathroom door closed to help the situation but if you need a cold room in order to sleep, this AC will not cut it. Minor detail but this is important to some and usually the reason they search out rooms with AC to begin with.

We did take advantage of Paul's car the last day and unfortunately it broke down 30 minutes after we left. Paul came to fetch us as soon as possible (all taxis were completely backed up) and covered the cost of the scooter rental for that day. All car rentals were booked solid so we eneded up on the scooter - worked just fine and made quite a story! It was an unfortunate circumstance that Paul was very apologetic about and remedied as soon as possible.

I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and for such a detailed one at that. I must say the best part was that you would stay with us again, I couldn't ask for better endorsement and please know that upon your next visit, the vehicle wiring issue has been resolved.

I'm glad you enjoyed your breakfast and I was more than happy to do my best to accommodate your dietary needs.

I truly hope to see the two of you back here soon, I'll have a spinach omelet ready and waiting.
