This was our first visit to Vieques. We chose Villa del Sol simply on the basis of the photographs that were posted on line. To be honest, I didn't think the actual place could possibly live up to the expectations the photos created. But it did. The place is immaculate and fully furnished and equipped with everything travelers look for when they choose a condo over a hotel. Villa del Sol is perched on a hillside with a spectacular view of the sea. It has a very nice pool and beautiful grounds. It is possible to walk to the beach, technically, but it's not really ocean front. To get to town (Isabel on the northern coast), you will need some type of transportation. Vieques itself is beautiful because of its natural habitat. But don't go there expecting to find all of the amenities of other destinations that have been fully developed for tourism. (We were OK with this.) We were there in the "off season," so many restaurants were closed. However, there were some spectacular ones that were open and we really enjoyed their food and the ambience. And once we located the grocery store in Vieques, we bought some food to eat at the condo. Vieques, itself, is a little challenging -- horses roam the streets in groups, as do dogs. They seem to know the routine, however, and move out of the way when a car approaches. Streets in Isabel are very narrow -- too narrow for cars going in opposite directions to move at the same time. But the residents usually wait and allow you to go first. Vieques is a great place to go if you want some "down" time. We enjoyed our trip and we really loved staying at Villa del Sol. (We were actually able to keep up with our work via the reliable internet service at the condo.) We had the opportunity to talk to the owner, who is a special person. We definitely will go there again.
Perfect getaway! Spectacular views. House is like brand new on huge gated property. Well appointed Kitchen. Nice pool right outside. Exceptionally helpful owner and property manager. Close to Town and beaches.
