My wife and I spent 6 days (July 16-19)on Vieques at the Hacienda and hated leaving. The hotel lived up to expectations with the staff exceeding them. We quickly upgraded our room to the suite, not because anything was wrong with our first room but to get a private balcony. Our packed picnic lunches each day on a different beach, mostly by ourselves and this during Padrones (festival week) were just what we wanted, and the recommendations for dinner to Media Luna, Trade Wind, and esp. to Bili were right on. As everyone says, Biobay is unique that must be experienced to be believed.
The 2nd half of our trip was to a fancy "private island" in the BVI which was totally different, very enjoyable, and luxurious, but not nearly the fun we had on Vieques at Hacienda Tamarindo.
- 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
