“Javal is the best!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

The food and dinner service at Sorce was great. But what really made our nights there special was our waiter Javal. We were here on our honeymoon and he was the only person at this resort who was interested in making us feel special on our honeymoon!

“Very disappointed.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

We stayed at the W and had breakfast at Sorce and it was a horrible experience. The service was SO slow and that is the worst because you just want to be on the beach and the food wasn't good. I had eggs Benedict and my boyfriend had the mexican type dish and he didn't like it. The potatoes with my eggs benedict tasted stale. The experience was so bad we never wanted to try it for dinner. However, I did come back for breakfast because I just wanted a fresh fruit plate and I figured it couldn't be bad and it was TERRIBLE. Also, they took forever just to give me a menu and water. The fruit was not fresh and tasted horrible.

“Get full off the view!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

My husband and I were really disappointed with Sorce because this is our 2nd time at the W. The first time we visited in 2012 and our favorite activity every morning was breakfast by the sea. They had homemade jam then served with your fresh croissant order and the coffee was brewed through a French press. There was something so comforting and home away from home about that experience and they even offered morning papers such as the New York Times. This time it has been replaced with a continental breakfast buffet and everything felt very manufactured. The food is best described as hotel now but the view is still beautiful. If you don't feel like driving out, eat the view but expect to pay a lot for it.

P.S. For dinner, make sure you have a reservation or just drive out to Esperanza. Would probably be more worth your time and money.

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

Don't let the negative reviews dissuade you. The setting at the W is spectacular, the service wonderful and the food excellent! Yes, it is a bit pricey but still worth it compared to some of the island's comparable restaurants. We particularly liked the tuna tartar, skirt steak and the chocolate espresso dessert! I would go back in a heart beat (and will.) Enjoy!

“Wonderful Experience with a Beautiful View!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

While flying over to Vieques we had the good fortune of meeting Angel Esquembre of Sorce located in The W Hotel. He told us many things about the Island (and waited with us for an hour until our taxi picked us up at the airport). We decided that our first meal should be at Sorce and Angel said it would be memorable - true to his word! We were treated to a wonderful outdoor table with a great view and impecable service from Angel and another young man for the entire meal. Dinner consisted of the chef's amusement, salads, and paella to die for, along with accompanying wines. We will be talking about this experience for a long time! Thanks you Angel and staff of The W Hotel who made this a memorable evening. Good luck to you Angel and we wish for you many wonderful adventures ahead! Cindy and Lori from Michigan.
