We stayed here for four nights and were actually sad to go. It took us a while to get used to no TV, but we were so exhausted from all our snorkeling and swimming that we ended up going to bed early anyway. I expected the guests to mingle a little more in the library during the evenings, but people just seemed to go in to check their e-mail on the computer. Our room wasn't exactly luxurious, but was clean, comfortable, and big, and had everything we needed. The building is charming and the grounds are beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. I would not reccommend the hacienda if you like to sleep really late because the sounds from the breakfast area will wake you up at 8 am anyway. It was great to have beach towels and the honor bar was really useful as well. My only caution would be that Burr, the owner, can be a little bristly at first, but he is actually a really nice guy. The clientele was a mix of older and younger couples - the hotel does not take kids under 15.
- 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
