We stayed in this lovely, small hotel over Christmas. The staff there helped us secure a low airfare to Vieques and a rental car, which is most important to have on this island. Although not located on the beach, it has a terrific view of the Caribbean, cool breezes and a pretty pool with fountain. The hotel is outside the busy section of Esperanza which contributes to the peaceful, quiet experience. We were given beach chairs, towels and access to books, magazines and a computer. There is some wifi available, but it is not constant. The breakfasts were delicious and if you request it, the friendly staff will pack you a picnic lunch in a backpack complete with ice packs. We enjoyed everything about the hotel, but even with insect repellant, we received a large number of mosquito bites. All of the restaurants are open air, so it is more of an island problem. I would definitely recommend this really charming hotel, just be diligent in your use of insect repellant.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vieques’ Hacienda Tamarindo offers 17 very special rooms, each lovingly and creatively designed and decorated by owner, Linda Vail -- her swan song after over 20 years as a commercial interior designer. Each guest room and public space is unique; imaginatively spiced with a lifetime’s accumulation of art, antiques, and collectibles. An ancient Tamarind tree in the lobby atrium majestically rises three stories through the center of the building. Terraces, courtyards, and sitting rooms offer ample space for relaxation and conversation. The Hacienda is perched on a hilltop with spectacular 180 degree views of the Caribbean -- from sunrise to sunset; looking down on the bedazzling, ever-changing myriad of blue, emerald and turquoise waters. Caribbean trade winds and lazy paddle fans keep you cool and comfortable. Here, you can fall asleep to a tree frog serenade and awake to the smell of jasmine on the gentle sea breeze. ... more less
