While vacationing on Vieques for the first time, At the Waves exceeded our expections. Ian, the owner, answered my e-mails promptly with info about the accommodations as well as the island. We went during the off season and stayed in the 2 bedroom house closest to the beach. The house was very clean, comfortable and large. The bathroom had amenities(sunscreen, lotion, etc...) from previous visitors for our comfort. The property was exceptionally well maintained, with beautiful coconut palm trees and a gorgeous, clean swimming pool. Even though the beach on the property is not for swimming, you will love walking along the shore and finding shells. Another couple staying there, who were from the main island, were just as impressed as we were. With Ian's expertise, we found the most amazing beaches for snorkeling. Make sure you rent a jeep or else it will be very hard to get around! You should also take a biobay trip, it was quite memorable.

Stayed At the Waves Dec 13th-20th, renting the two units in Villa California for our party of 10, for a family reunion. Had three generations: grandparents, 2 young couples, and four kids, ranging from 8 to 4. The place is beautifully equipped with almost anything you could need: lots of kitchen and beach equipment--above and beyond what you'd expect. The grounds and pool are lovely, and nicely maintained, and we certainly appreciated the laundry facilities too. We were very thankful to be staying at a place with air conditioned bedrooms, and fans in all the rooms. The owner Ian was very helpful ahead of time, recommending car rentals and transportation options from San Juan, and also once we were there, recommending the best beaches for our kids, etc, etc. Although everyone had fun collecting "treasures" from the beach At the Waves, we always swam at beaches on the south side... and there are LOTS of them, with powdery white sand, no waves, and hardly any people. Esperanza was a fun spot to hit a bar for dinner, but none of us wished we were staying there. We did all take Abe's bio-luminescent night-time kayak and swim tour. Highly recommended! Don't go thinking you'll be driving Hertz-quality SUV's, or eating San Francisco food... and you'll realize you've discovered paradise! At the Waves was the perfect place for us, and I'm sure we'd all choose it again!

At the Waves is not a hotel but rather two, separate buildings on the north shore of Vieques containing five units. Our family, three generations comprising two grandparents, three adults, and two teenagers, occupied a one-bedroom unit and a three-bedroom unit over Christmas. The accommodations were very good, well-appointed and clean, although a few features were experiencing "technical difficulties" (e.g., the dishwasher resisted repeated attempts at repair and the satellite TV signal was intermittent). The adjacent beach was nice and generally deserted but the waves on this, the Atlantic side of the island make swimming inhospitable in winter. What made this place special was the management. Linda and Bill, who were inn sitting for vacationing owner Ian, were delightful--always cheerful, always helpful. Every request was met with a smile and an immediate, positive response. They really came through after we were robbed on the beach (see separate review under Vieques), loaning us their laptop and even money for food--definitely service above and beyond the call of duty. Of the 30 or so places we have stayed in the Caribbean over the years, I would rank At the Waves near the top. Unfortunately, it is on Vieques.

At the Waves was perfect. We stayed in the ocean front 2 bed room villa and it was wonderful. Very relaxing. We did have some noisy neighbors the first night we were there but that was soon forgotten because the rest of our stay was just perfect. I would go back there in a heart beat. Ian has thought of everything for the perfect getaway. Villas are clean, well equipped and comfortable. Beach towels, beach chairs and a cooler too.

We just returned from a wonderful stay at "At the Waves"--It was the perfect place for my family for four(myself, my husband and twin 9-year old daughters). Last year we visited Vieques for the first time and had a great time staying at Hector's by the Sea, but this was even better for the family. The ground floor 2-bedroom unit was clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The grounds are just lovely--the ocean is right there and the pool is great for a dip at the end of a day at the beach. We cooked in a couple of nights and enjoyed having the gas grill and a nice little kitchen.

The sound of the ocean, drinking morning coffee while looking out at the ocean--all was great. If the beaches on Vieques weren't so spectacular, one could just spend a vacation relaxing on this property. Ian is very helpful and friendly-- we hope to be able to return.
