Rooms are fantastic and big; great breakfast (but VERY slow service), pool is gorgeous, small spa (just treatments - no sauna/steam etc), can rent jeeps (highly recommend) & book excursions on site
Vieques burger is amazing - it has a slice of roasted pork on it. Life changing.
Definitely rent a jeep and visit other restaurants -- food is expensive here. We bought bread, cheese, and ham at W Cafe and ate sandwiches as little snacks throughout the day.
This resort is beautiful, expensive but everything from the rooms to the views were amazing. The feel is casual and the guests range from families to couples. We're making this an annual trip.
Gorgeous hotel! The decor/design manages to be modern/warm/authentic all at the same time. Some of the staff are a bit indifferent, but overall we really enjoyed our stay.
AT&T subscribers get fast LTE on most of the grounds and the Wi-Fi is free and fast too (and only makes you reconnect once every 7 days).
Despite all the beauty and luxury, you pay a daily resort fee of $60 (!) and you get the WORST internet conection in the entire world.
Rent a car and drive to Silver Beach. It's worth the trek.
Local taxis are great & cheap. $10 round trip per person to Esperanza. Skip the $85/ day for a car rental.
Find the secret magic pool!! Watch the stars at night!
Rent a jeep and spend a day driving to the remote beaches. Bring your own aux cable.
Thumbs up for cab drivers Jorge and Hector. Get the front desk to call them for you. Don't eat at the W. . The island restaurants are so much better.

Stay away from Normita, the welcome desk manager, who is rude, aggressive, patronizing and offensive. Starwood should be ashamed of her and her representation of their brand. Shame shame shame.
Grab complimentary snorkel gear and swim with the plentiful fish at the offshore reef, adjacent to the hotel’s adults-only Whisper Cove beach.
Jesus @ poolside bar makes the best cocktails & tells you where to eat the best foods on the island. Otherwise, service is inconsistent & food at the hotel is over-priced and sub par. Beautiful hotel
My full review, videos and photos on my stay at the W Retreat @
Make sure to order a dragon daiquiri at the Living Room
What an amazing property! Everything about my stay here was divine!
Mango mojitos are so good!
Save a few bucks by skipping the wifi and using 3G instead. With so few people on island, the bandwidth is plentiful!
There are Kayak's for free. Get the life jackets and paddles at the Black Beard Sports. Go to the left passed 3 small beaches. 1 of them is totally desolated. Perfect for romance ;)
The Ceviche here is AMAZING! Probably the best ceviche I've had outside Peru.
El Quenope was far better. Don't waste the meal or the money.

Free yoga, kayaking and snorkel gear!
DVD player? Yes, your room has one. So pack your favorite or classic movies to watch (or borrow from the front desk)! You can curl up in your chair built for two & watch some of your favorites!
Night swim? Check out the resort's infinity pools (open 24hrs) that are lit up at night with neon colors. A swim under the stars with the sounds of the waves crashing - very unique experience!
Checkout the Bio Bay & use (Vieques Adventure Company @ http://viequesadventures.com/). We received an amazing experience with Garry; a small group, & clear canoe which glows all around you, do this!
Get your seat at the fire pit(it fills up fast). At 6 pm the bartender creates a new cocktail for everyone to try complimentary from 6 to 6:30 pm – a great spot to listen to the waves crash.
Men In Tights by the infinity pool :)
What could be better than watching a pirate movie next to the beach and water!
Make sure you visit the Pool made out of Volcanic Rocks! Do it late at night and watch the majestic starry sky.
Arelis is the bartender and she is AMAZING!!! Smart as hell and great convo. Had an amazing time because of her.
Order a pitcher of sangria at the pool bar not living room bar. The bartender prepares it fresh in front of you and the pitcher is good for 9 glasses for only $45. The fries are worth the calories.
"Whenever, wherever" is their slogan, and they definitely live up to it. This is the only place to stay while you're on Vieques.
Complimentary cocktail at 6-630pm nightly
If you're dining in Mix on the Beach have the Gambas Mofingo and the cheesecake. Utterly wonderful!
Avis now rents brand new Jeeps on the property. Go to the concierge to make a reservation.
Loser Au Curry at Mix was delicious. Have been very happy with everything. Food, rooms and service have all been wonderful. The hotel is also incredibly beautiful.
Mofongo and the lobster au curry were delicious. Hotel setting and rooms are wonderful.
Order your food when you first sit down it takes 1hr to get to you
Find the W Cafe. The food is light and VERY reasonably priced for breakfast and lunch! Take advantage of complimentary perks and you will NOT be bored- yoga, snorkeling, swimming, tennis, books, SIP.
The morning yoga is an intense workout-- 1.5 hours!
Have them call Jorge to drive you around the island! Why pay $40 to rent a jeep when riding with him for $5 each is entertainment in itself? Met locals and other guests alike!
Amazing scenery. Most relaxation ever. Check out the white rocking chairs on the cliff
Definitely rent a car (reserve ahead), otherwise you're pretty stuck at the resort
The food- not so great. But that we look better in bikinis. Eric left his bikini with Karl!
