Hacienda Tamarindo, located near the main tourist area in Vieques, gives you a large comfortable room from which to base your island exploring and the equipment - chairs, towels, laundry, to make it easier to enjoy one of the many gorgeous and secluded beaches. Or enjoy a comforable chair, a good book, a cold gin and tonic from the honor bar, and look out to the beautiful blue sea. It has a wonderful breakfast included, with daily specials or order from the menu. The Tamarind Tree in the lobby adds to the charm and romance of the place. The staff will assist you in renting a jeep, finding a restaurant, or directing you to your choice of a beach. Down the road a bit is Island Adventures whose talented young staff will take you out to the biobay at night, for a dip in the phosphorescent waters, and idenetify the constellations of the night sky as well. There's a good Mexican restaurant there too. Vieques has a number of fine places to eat, mostly in the more tourist-y area but we also very much enjoyed El Patio in Isabel Segunda. Hacienda Tamardindo has internet, but I wouldn't call it "high speed." It's very much of the old modem connection type. Some reviews have questioned insect presence in some hotels in Puerto Rico or the tropics. We didn't see any in April, but there was a can of Raid in the room. We look forward to a return visit.
- 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
