Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • On the beach, and close to Coconut Beach (accessible only on foot)
  • Peaceful and remote, with no Internet
  • Rustic, simple, elegant decor
  • Excellent cuisine at Carambola Restaurant, plus casual fare at Blue Moon Bar and Grill
  • Great ocean views from L'Mirador bar
  • Infinity pool overlooking the ocean
  • Beautiful grounds with lots of tropical plants

Cons

  • No Internet, and most rooms lack TVs (a pro for some)
  • Fee for gym use
  • Rocky beach

Bottom Line

This quaint, 10-room bed-and-breakfast is on Vieques Island is full of the charming, personal touches that so many chain hotels lack. It's an undeniably romantic pick, with phenomenal ocean views from the stone infinity pool and open-air lobby; airy, Mediterranean-style architecture; and wild horses roaming the grounds. Three bedrooms are in the main "inn," and others can be found in various bungalows dotting the property. The clean, lofty rooms are styled with eclectic antiques and tropical flowers -- but they're not quite luxurious and are showing minor wear. The on-site beach is a bit rocky, but some of the best beaches in the Caribbean are a short drive away.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Remote and serene locale on Vieques Island, with multiple natural attractions nearby

Perched on a plot of untouched Puerto Rican soil overlooking the northern, Atlantic-side of the island, the Inn on the Blue Horizon offers guests a serene oasis-like experience. It's just a 30-minute flight from Puerto Rico's mainland and a 5-minute drive from the island's airport.

This unique little island offers travelers pure, undeveloped land, mainly thanks to the US Navy's former use of a good portion of the island for a bombing range. After a series of protests, the Navy left in 2003, and the Navy land is now a national wildlife refuge. A fair number of restaurants, pubs, and even coffee shops can be found on the island -- but no chains. There are no casinos, golf courses, or any typical tourist attractions, and much of Isla de Vieques' attractions are nature-oriented: Its stunning, untouched white-sand beaches and famous bioluminescent bay are the highlights, but it also features walking trails, 300-year-old trees, and some of the top snorkeling spots in Puerto Rico.

  • 30-minute flight to San Juan in small plane
  • 7-minute drive to Antonio Rivera Rodriguez Airport
  • 10-minute walk to Coconut Beach
  • 5- to 10-minute drive to various restaurants and bars
  • 10-minute drive to the town of Esperanza
  • 15-minute drive to Sun Bay Beach, a pristine white-sand beach that's the most popular on Vieques
  • 15-minute drive to Mosquito Bay, one of the world's largest bioluminescent bays
