I stayed in Casa Solar on the top floor and loved the air and sounds and view! The property is beautiful. The architecture incredibly unique and inspiring. And Odie was amazing! She helped me navigate the island, with suggestions, tips, etc. Important, you will need a vehicle to get out to Hix. It's off the beaten path and not close... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for several nights in late February. It was fantastic. We stayed in triangle studio. It blew us away. The outdoor shower and flowers were only outdone by the bedroom/living area. It was so comfortable and connected with nature. If you can't relax here, you can't relax anywhere. The yoga studio is incredible as is... More

We stayed in Redonda 3, and it was a lovely room with a nice view of the hillside and a peek of ocean beyond. The rooms are very unique in that they are open air and designed to take advantage of the tradewinds and provide a pleasant temperature without using as much energy as A/C requires. This worked well for... More

We had the chance to stay at the Solaris on the top floor and the view was great, although it is a little bit more expensive than some of the other rooms, paying a little extra was definitely worth it. I'm not a big fan of lizards (this wasn't going to stop me from booking) and was expecting to see... More

I visit this place everytime I had a chance. Is so beautiful no words can describe this place! Vieques is an amazing island in Puerto Rico located in the Caribbean.

Fly into Vieques and rent a jeep from Maritza rental to drive to Hix and use all week. Pack swimsuits, sunscreen and a few shorts and T-shirts.

When the rooms and views are this beautiful, who needs to leave the hotel? It's even better than the pictures on the website. We've stayed in both Solaris and the Triangle buildings and both were perfect in different ways. Location is convenient to beaches and restaurants but you definitely need a car. Most days we had lovely breakfast and lunch... More

The peaceful and withdrawn sanctuary and architectural delight invented by the Canadian architect John Hix has been around for some years already even though it was new to us.

The Real Eco-Resort Experience! Outdoor showers, no phone , TV or AC! Therefore, If you are not up for this kind of experience Hix Island House it´s not the place for you! The space, location, and architecture are amazing! The ingredientes provided by the hotel for a DYI breakfast are super fresh and delicious!
