My wife and I booked Oreanda for a belated honeymoon Caribbean get-away. Our stay was a perfect mix of beach-bumming, tourist-y exploring, dining out, and relaxing at the property. Stephanie was efficient and thorough with booking, provided commuter coupons for discounted airfare, and suggested some her her favorite activities and spots on the island. Tyler, the property manager, was an incredible help - it is obvious he takes a lot of pride in the upkeep of the property (he even served us some home-grown pineapple!). He helped us arrange a bio-bay tour, a hike to a black-sand beach, a horseback tour, and in-home massages. The property itself is gorgeous - some of our favorite moments were breakfasts on the deck, overlooking mountains and ocean (an awesome view!), and lazy afternoons by the pool.
Another young couple (lawyers from NY) arrived during our stay, which, truthfully, I was concerned might spoil the serenity of our get-away. It turns out they were really nice and cool - we did the bio-bay tour together and had an impromptu 'happy hour' getting to know one another - it was just the right amount of socializing.
We loved it, and hope to return soon. As far as we are concerned it, this is Vieques at its best.
