The Bravo Beach hotel is located right on the ocean with great views and sounds of the ocean. Its a nice place to sleep and wake up in the mornings. The owners, Karl and Janna, are great hosts. They moved down to Vieques from Minnesota. I wonder why.
We thought the hotel was right on the beach and had planned to spend the first couple of days in and around the hotel and explore the island later. Don't do that. Rent a Jeep before you get here for your duration because you will need it. The beaches on the island are located a couple of miles away and are incredible, so plan to spend your days there if you're interested in beaches. Also, the town of Esperanza, which is on the south part of the island, is much nicer with happening restaurants and decent food on the main drag which runs along the ocean (I'll write more about bars and restaurants in other reviews where I describe them individually).
The hotel provides beach chairs and snorkeling equipment which is a great help so you don't need to rent that stuff and you take whatever you need for the day.
So, if you're headed to Vieques, which I would highly recommend (it is very different from the rest of the Carribean islands in a *nice* way -- more laid back, no fancy shmancy stuff and hordes of loud tourists), the Bravo Beach is a good base from which to explore.
