The room was spacious and clean. I stayed during slower time and they were very kind enough to offer me flexible check in and out time :) They have parking spaces so you don't have to park on the street. Of all, I really appreciated that they gave me extra towels - 2 beach towels and 3 bath towels +...

Hi SunnyBunny, Thank you for your positive review! I'm glad you enjoyed the early check in and late check out. We do everything we can to try and extend your short time here on Vieques. Why not squeeze every last minute from this magical island? I'm glad you noticed the extra towels. There's nothing I hate more than not having...

Based on the price of Vieques stay that hostels cost $30 per bed this hotel is great for couples. Common areas are comfy. Sofa and TV. Security seems nice. Staff is great. Pool humble but enough. Now it has almostv10 cays around.bI love th but if you are allergic don't stay here.

Hi Yariel, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit! The casita is definitely everyone's favorite room, especially for couples. I'm also happy to hear you loved the cats because you were a kitty magnet! They seemed to know that you have a big heart. We hope to see you both again very soon.

We had a really nice stay. The best features of the Inn is the owner, Lisa who was helpful, friendly and hospitable. We really loved having the cats outside. She rescues cats and helps with the humane society. The cats don't go in the rooms. It was great to have beach equipment to borrow, and cold water and beer for...

Jenn, Thanks for the positive words. I appreciate you pointing out that the cats (and the dog) don't go in the rooms. Guests can enjoy them in the common areas and garden, and count on a pet free, allergy free room. I also enjoyed our Asheville talk. You've given us something to think about!

This is my third consecutive year staying at the Esperanza Inn. The owners, Jay and Lisa are friendly, hospitable, and knowledgeable of the island. The Inn is located just off the malecon, within walking distance of everything from food, bars, and of course a beach. Equipped with a common area for cooking, some rooms have kitchenettes, a pool, and gated...

I can't thank enough J. And Lisa for being such wonderful hosts, we felt we were staying at some relatives house. The room was clean and it smelled so fresh from the open windows, but it has an air conditioning, so we slept very comfortable at night. They provided us with plenty beach towels, outside, there's a covered patio with...

Please read entire review same tittle. Don't go there. It's not cheap enough for what you get. After I saw the condition of the property my children took their shower with their shoes on. The island itself is a beauty BUT feeling cheated and disappointed I can get elsewhere without the high cost.

Outdated air conditioner (approximately 25 years old) too small for the only room, meaning futon designated guest in the living room has to make it through sleep without air conditioner at a temperature above 90 degrees (and after a day at the beach, of course). It is the only air conditioner in the apartment (none at living room/kitchen). Bed linens...
