“Lovely and Tranquil”
Reviewed August 1, 2008

Just returned from 4 days on Vieques and must say that I enjoyed our stay at Ababor Suites. They offer fairly simple accomodations and the grounds are beautiful. A nice beach to walk or for children to play in is really a mattter of a hundred yards from the front door. It is about 5 minutes out of Isabella II.

We actually had no interaction with management while we were there. When we arrived a young boy was outside playing and we asked him where we went to check in and he went into a building and returned saying that the manager wasn't there but the suite was open and the keys were on the table in the kitchen. We enjoyed ouserlves for 4 days and there were instructions to leave the keys on the table and lock up when we left. All worked out well.

Ababor Suites was fantastic! We had an absolutely lovely time from the moment we arrived. Management was extremely helpful and accessible prior to our trip, and provided us with all the assistance and preparation we needed before we arrived. The grounds are beautiful, the beach was fantastic and the room was comfortable and perfectly equipped for a relaxing week at the beach. It was great to stay somewhere that is the perfect distance from the town so that you can enjoy the space, peace and quiet that comes from being out of the commercial area, but can always easily get into town for dinner or a few drinks. We had some lovely walks to town, and even better evenings on the patio looking at the stars and listening to the ocean. This is the perfect place to go with someone you love!

We just returned from Vieques Island after a nine day stay at Ababor Suites. What a gem of a place. It is a hidden jewel on the island. If you are looking for a secluded, beach front, tranquil place to stay this is it. The property is beautiful!!! It is clean, quite colorful and well maintained. Plus it is less than a 100 yards from the beach. The beach has beautiful white sand and a coral reef that allows you to swim in a small bay of water before heading into the ocean. At times we were the only two on the beach and it was wonderful. You can see the islands of Culebra and St. Thomas from the beach and from the suites. If you love cooking the kitchen facilities are wonderful in each suite. There is also two great Gazebo's each with covered shelter and grills, tables and chairs. If you prefer to eat out you are ten minutes from Isabella and 15 minutes from Esperanza which both towns have great restaurants. The horses roam freely as you sit outside and enjoy the breath taking views. There was also two little dogs whom happen to adopt us and added to the ambience of the suites. Wanda was hospitable and if we needed anything she was available to us. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for peace and quiet.

My family and I stayed at Ababor Suites for vacation earlier this year and loved the place. We rented out all of the suites, but particularly liked the Media Luna suite. At night, we could lounge in the hammocks and barbeque on the patio area. The beach is calm and shallow - great for young children - and other beaches on the island are within short driving distances. This was a peaceful, beautiful, and secluded place to stay.

My husband and I stayed at Ababor after spending a week in St. Croix. The lower apartment was very cute and roomy enough for two people. It sits just off from a beach that would be great for children, but definitely not the most beautiful on the island. The only downside is the location...its close to the road(which seemed to have a lot of traffic during our stay) and the neighboring houses are under construction. Also, although the beach in front of Ababor is clean, a short walk on the beach to the west will lead to to another beach cluttered with trash and rusted automobile parts...not very charming and slightly disappointing. On the upside, Ababor is close to Isabel II, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The property is well maintained and the outdoor shower is great for washing off the sand and salt that accumlated after a day at the beach. In summary, if you're looking for resort life (ie the sound of waves lulling you to sleep, swimming pools, on-premise dining and maid sevice) this is not the place for you. If you want a cute, clean, comfortable place to return to after a day of exploring the island this is it! We will surely stay Ababor again when we return to Viques.

Other info about the island... we found that many restaurants are only open on the weekends (this could be due to traveling at the tail end of the off season). We absolutely loved the biobay tour and snorkeling at Mosquito Pier was great for a beginner snorkeler...the number of starfish is amazing!! We aslo loved the fact that every single beach on Vieques is different...it is definitely worth checking out all of them! Happy traveling!

Wonderful find! Just far enough from the city but just close enough too. This place is perfect- we are college students so having the kitchen to cook in (save $$) was great. We will definitely be back again. I loved the little geckos that come on the walls- so cute! Beach views are Gorgeous!

I stayed at this hotel and it was lovely, the manager was nice however the location was not the greatest. Kind of out of the way, and you have to drive a while to get to the nice beaches. It was difficult to get to, and the town of Bravo was crowded. Some nights were noisy, you could hear crowds and noise from the neighborhood. The beach is very shallow, so it is not great for swimming. The place was clean, but it was too much like a regular house in Puerto Rico. You can find other places to stay in a better location and with a little more appeal for the same price.
