Very nice hotel in the middle of everything. I will have to come back and stay again.

A set of stand alone cabins surrounding a beautiful main facility with outdoor bar, pool, and dining. All overlook the sea, and a rocky beach. The staff are pleasant, and engaging. Accommodations are lovely. Vieques is very rustic, and so is Blue. It assumes the simple friendly charm of the island. You will need a jeep to get around. If you are interested in a relaxed quiet experience, this is a great choice

I wanted to share my experience regarding supervisor Javier from the Palacio location. We were moved for the Convento site to the Palacio site due to torn sheets, unswept under beds with leftover toys from previous dwellers, malfunctioning air conditioning, and cockroaches presence in our room. Helen was kind and personally assisted us in our room transitions. We were advised to obtain breakfast vouchers and met Javier at the front desk. Javier, to say the least, is rude and unfriendly. He was rolling his eyes and just appeared unwilling to assist. He was argumentative about the fact that the food vouchers were not issued by Helen. Javier pointed at my 3 year old son and sarcastically asked if he is going to eat as well insinuating that he should not be eating. Javier should not be dealing with customers as he does not know what customer service means.

10,0 Wonderful
Pros:The Hotel Staff is bilingual, loves travelers, will always say hello, will help you find your way around, will feed you until you are stuffed, will make you feel like you are in a family home. This location is across the street from one of the oldest Catholic Cathedrals in North America. Centrally located in Old San Juan for UBER rides, two ancient forts and fabulous restaurants within a block or two. Police are everywhere protecting your safety.
Cons:Main elevator kept breaking down with immediate repair by local Contracted company. Any baggage moves handled by Hotel. They helped us totally through this minor problem.

L
10,0 Wonderful
Pros:Every staff interaction was terrific. Friendly, eager, helpful, welcoming. Front desk, restaurant (tapas bar, food and staff shine!) History just walks the halls with you! The rooftop pool and hot tub with harbor view at sunset was something special. Then we left a coat behind, and discovered it after our cruise ship left, they packed it up and Shipped it home.
Cons:Having to leave so soon. Should have booked a much longer stay!

10,0 Wonderful
Pros:The attention to detail and quality was evident in the furnishings and finishes of the hotel. The staff as courteous and responsive and the daily guest wine and cheese reception was a nice touch. It's location is hard to beat and the hotel blends well into the historical city of Old San Juan.
Cons:There is a lot of traffic directly outside. Not good for early check in.
