“Excellent Location, Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Puerto Rico, the last three days of which were at Casa de Amistad. It was easy to find with the map provided to us by Avis. The front door was a little confusing, as it isn't clear how you get into the place to check in. The moral of that situation is simple - you can't just walk in. There's a gate dead center with a black doorbell button to the right. Nancy greeted us at the door and was very pleasant to deal with. The inside of the building is well decorated and well kept by the staff there. Nancy breezed through our paperwork with us, issued us our key, and brought us to our room.

We stayed in room #9, which is one of the newer rooms. King sized bed, TV with DISH, nice shower, bathroom, some chairs outside the deck to relax on. Perfect. There is a pool outside the room forward and to the left, which is in a well done courtyard and tastefully decorated.

Available to use are beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, cooler ice packs, and snorkeling equipment.

Additionally, I have never felt more safe leaving my belongings behind in a hotel room. There's keyed iron gates to get in, security coded door locks on the rooms, and even a safe in the room itself. The neighborhood may seem pretty seedy for some people, but everyone we encountered was very pleasant and nice.

Will definitely stay again on our many anticipated trips back to the island.

Room Tip: Having only stayed and seen one room, I'd see if rooms 8 or 9 were available. Both new rooms and...

It's just perfect. Starting with the decoration, such an exquisite taste! The comfortableness of it's room,(missing that king size bed), the excellent location (accessible to every place). Next time I'll just take a travel bag with me and that's it, everything else is provided there(cooler, chairs...for free; towels, snorkeling equipment, refreshments, etc. for rent or buy) and last but not least, Nancy, such an amazing administrator, who help us with anything we needed. We couldn't ask for more. So, Casa La Amistad, made our vacations @Vieques just perfect!
Coming back soon;)

Everything we could have asked for. We stayed here for two nights a couple of weeks ago and could not have been happier with our stay. Walking distance to so many sites and if you need a car for exploring further out, most of the rental companies will pick you up at the front door.
Our room was awesome with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Great common area with cold beer and water on the honor system, access to the kitchen if we chose to cook, towels, coolers and snorkeling equipment at the ready to rent. Couldn't have been more convenient. Absolutely everything we needed (and more) and a terrific hostess to boot! (Nancy was subbing during our visit and was absolutely delightful!)
If you'd like the perfect spot to complement your visit to Vieques, Casa de Amistad is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9 (one of the newer ones) and loved that it was near (within steps of) the main ho...

We stayed at Casa de Amistad for 3-nights and loved it. The location is excellent, within walking distance of all the town has to offer. The rooms are clean, quiet, and the property is very well kept. We loved the extra amenities like beach towels and coolers for our days at the beach. Our host was incredible and was so knowledgeable about the island and offering suggestions on how to make our trip perfect. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all on the beautiful island of Vieques. Thanks for making our trip so memorable.

Best guesthouse we ever stayed in. Seriously. We were in PR to get quick, intimate wedding. Three nights we spend in Casa de Amistad was our honeymoon. It was the best choice we could have made. We actually extended our stay for one more night because it was so nice. Place is not only conveniently located and clean, it is also tasteful and exceptionally well organized. There is cute kitchen with everything you need to make a quick meal. Stuff doesn't go to waste as whatever you don't use during your stay you leave to share (that includes food, booze, sunscreen, bug spray etc.). There are coolers, beach seats and towels included in the price of the room. You also can borrow snorkeling gear for 10$ (I say borrow, not rent, coz all the stuff you could just use and put money in the black case to pay for it. it also applies to cold beer and water stash). Casa de Amistad has a slight vibe of a youth hostel but with all the privacy you want. You will not regret staying here!

My partner and I stayed at this place last month of may because of the recommendation of friends that have stayed there before. We were pleasantly surprised that this place is so nice and quaint !- our room was one of the newest of the property and we loved it. this place is near the ferry and really close to shops and stores as the town is really small. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: get the new rooms!- although not sure about the rest of the rooms, but I am sure will not disappoint...
