Though the small island of Vieques is known for beautiful beaches, the one in front of this small hotel is small and unimpressive. That being said, the 18 simple, beachy rooms and apartments -- most with balconies and ocean views -- are affordable, and the hotel is within walking distance of the cool village of Isabel II. There are two immaculate pools, including an infinity pool that looks out over the ocean; it's particularly romantic at sunset, and guests can enjoy drinks from the honor bar. The apartments across the street are great for families and groups. Continental breakfast is free, as are loaner beach accessories -- though to find a nicer stretch of sand, a rental car is recommended.
