It's a terrible conflict to want, on one hand, to share the excitement of finding a most excellent hotel in a magnificent place, while on the other hand, worrying that there will be a stampede and we'll never be able to get another reservation...but since Vieques isn't all that easy to get to, there will (we hope) be room for us at the Hacienda Tamarindo.
The highest praise we can give to a vacation spot is - wish we could stay another week - and this lovely hotel earns it.
If you are looking for a lovely, low key and non-glitzy place to spend your vacation, look no further. Our hosts Linda and Burr attended to our every need. Delicious breakfasts, beautiful views and just out of the way enough for a week of peace and quiet.
Make sure to book early and to reserve a jeep at the same time. Take care to bring bug spray if you are out after dusk - the sand flees at the beach are voracious.
Vieques is not for everybody. We kept referring to it as the anti-St Barths. I wouldn't go there with kids - many flights and not enough for them to do.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vieques’ Hacienda Tamarindo offers 17 very special rooms, each lovingly and creatively designed and decorated by owner, Linda Vail -- her swan song after over 20 years as a commercial interior designer. Each guest room and public space is unique; imaginatively spiced with a lifetime’s accumulation of art, antiques, and collectibles. An ancient Tamarind tree in the lobby atrium majestically rises three stories through the center of the building. Terraces, courtyards, and sitting rooms offer ample space for relaxation and conversation. The Hacienda is perched on a hilltop with spectacular 180 degree views of the Caribbean -- from sunrise to sunset; looking down on the bedazzling, ever-changing myriad of blue, emerald and turquoise waters. Caribbean trade winds and lazy paddle fans keep you cool and comfortable. Here, you can fall asleep to a tree frog serenade and awake to the smell of jasmine on the gentle sea breeze. ... more less
