This is a charming property with a laid-back vibe, terrific staff, and lots of character. The pool is beautiful (not heated, despite what others have said, but not necessary). The décor is generally attractive although occasionally dissonant (Caribbean prints next to Americana wall signs). We stayed in Casita Linda which had a nice view of the horses and the ocean, and a wonderful kitchen and veranda. Unfortunately the second bedroom's windows were covered by plastic (no screens) so it was A/C or nothing. And the exhaust fan in the bathroom was noisy and inadequate, which made it impossible to remove the dampness in the room. I did report the fan to the staff as we were leaving and they promised to address it. The ambience and location more than outweighed the minor issues, and I'd be happy to return here.
- 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
