We booked this room last minute on our way to Puerto Rico as our other travel plans fell through. The site said this hotel was 40 miles from the city center of San Juan but did not mention that the hotel was on a separate island. Not having a lot of time to book I also take blame for not... More

We came 2/23-2/27/15 to get away from the harsh, cold & snowy northeast winter. The proprietor, Dana, was lovely, hands on, and ran a very tight ship. The property is clean, very well kept, with lovely gardens covering the property. Room size is more than ample, bed was very comfortable. Breakfast is not fancy, little choice, the offering being 3... More

Visited Vieques for a two night stay on 2/15/15 - 2/17/15 and couldn't have been more pleased. It was a bit difficult to find at first, but glad we did. Dana greeted us immediately upon arrival. The room we had was #1 and was very nice and romantic. It had a king size bed and a wrap around porch. The... More

Unlike other reviewers we had no issue with the booking or with the reception. We were very well received, the place was clean and lovely; Dana and her sister (visiting from Switzerland) were accommodating and friendly. Dana helped us with some transportation and good advice, as it was a holiday (Tres Reyes) and taxis hard to find. Breakfast was ok.... More

Great escape is a wonderful little hideaway in Vieques. Our room was spotless and when we left for the day and returned, all of our clothes and things had been put away so neatly and nicely. The owner, Dana is so sweet and drove us into town more than once when the wait for a taxi was long. If you... More

My daughter and I stayed for 3 nights & loved it! Room was respectably sized, very clean, and the service was excellent. We spent a lot of time exploring the island during our stay, but we enjoyed the beautifully manicured property and wonderfu people at Great Escape so much that we typically didn't leave until 11am most days. We truly... More

This is a hard review to write but needs to be told. Upon arriving in Vieques I called the number listed and must have spoken to the owner which was in the states at the time. It seemed my stay was unexpected because she asked how I booked, which I said through Hotels.com. She said that someone would be there... More
