“Great Service, basic accomodations”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

If you are going to Vieques, PR to enjoy the beach and be outside...this place will do. Jose and Maria are wonderful. They will do anything to help you. The rooms need some work, but are adequate - Jose is getting people to do work already - so it will look even better shortly. There is a breakfast for purchase, and it is quite good!

I visited this place with my sister and her friend. We are all in our mid late 20's. They are teachers and I am a recent college grad, so needless to say, we were travelling on a budget. Over our whole Puerto Rico trip. This was my favorite place. Vieques offers a great mix of activities in a small space. The staff are all wonderfully nice and will make an effort to help you get transportation or help you find activities etc. The owners Joe and Maria are some of the nicest people I have met, and they make in person efforts to make sure your stay is as nice as possible. They make breakfast each morning and while the menu is limited, its hard to go wrong with eggs, toast, and sausage coupled with juice or coffee. Tropical Guest House is in a neighborhood, so it gives you a more local feeling while still being in walking distance to the center of the nearby town. The beaches that people rave about are on the other side of the island, but as long as you plan transportation ahead of time you will be fine. (the staff is very helpful with this) If I ever go back to Puerto Rico, this is a definite stop.

We stayed there one night, Joe and Maria are very friendly, they gave us lots of good advice on the vieques island travel. The room and amentities are basic but very clean and quiet. The room price and shop are reasonable and very convenient, even including the complimentary welcome drink and a delicious breakfast. Very nice experience.

What makes this place wonderul to stay in are Joe and Mary who own and run the House. They went out of their way to accomodate us and make us comfortable. We were unable to find a cab from the ferry and Joe came to get us without hesitation. From the complimentary welcome drink to the delicious breakfast he fixed in the morning, the service was exceptional. The rooms are very basic but adequate and clean and since we were there only to sleep, we did not require fancier surroundings. Mary arranged our kayaking and biobay tour and even went so far as to call a taxi driver for us. This was a wonderful experience and we will definitely go back.

We stayed there for two nights. The owners and the front dest girl were so nice to us.

Shared lots of life experience and some advice for young couples!

I will remeber the karaoke night forever in my life, so relaxing, so feel home.

Thanks, the sweet couple owners :)

Also good deal!

Tropical Guest House is not fancy by any means, but the friendly staff made it a very pleasant experience. Rooms & amenities are very basic, but it's a great way to save money without sacrificing quality service. 15 minute drive to the beach. There's a convenient store right across the street in front of Tropical. There's also a fort walking distance down the street.

Had a great time here during our stay in Vieques. The staff was very nice and accomodating and friendly. The rooms were clean and within walking distance of restaurants and such. It is a bit far from many of the biobay excursion tours, but easy to get a taxi to take you to esperanza with the staff's help. Would defnitely recommend this place for the future in vieques!

They make you feel at home!
