This was our third, week long trip to Hector's by the Sea, but our first posting to tripadvisor. The pastoral setting is unparalleled in the Caribbean and the property enjoys both sunrise and sunset views. There is a new gazebo on the Esperanza side of the property and we made a lot of use of this new facility. The pool,...

All the 5 star reviews were right: Hector's By The Sea is a little slice of heaven. The property is open and beautiful...the ocean view is stunning. If you're looking for a spot to get away from your hectic lifestyle--this is it. The casita we stayed at--The Coqui--was very comfortable and immaculately clean! Hector is the nicest guy and he...

AHHHH.... Hector's By The Sea. Our one regret is that we didnt stay longer. We had our wedding in PR, then had been bouncing around the mainland for our honeymoon, and we feel our honeymoon really didnt begin until we got to Vieques and Hector's by the Sea! There is such a peaceful feeling and the view is beyond amazing....

A little slice of Heaven on Earth! Simply stated, we have NEVER had a better vacation! EVERYTHING about this trip was amazing. It all started when I called the wonderful Mary – the lady who makes Hector’s look so good (and the wife of the man himself…) way back in March 08. I told her I was planning my 40th...

When i logged onto trip advisor, i was suprised to see Hector's received a negative review. My wife has been "reminding" me (i'm quite the procrastinator) to write a review for Hector's since we returned home in August. I have to say, contrary to negative review i read, i found Hector and Mary to be extremely helpful and welcoming from...

My girlfriend and I just returned from a 5 day trip to Vieques where we stayed at "Hector's by the Sea". It was absolutely fantastic, and just what we were looking for. The room was very clean and private, yet still close enough to the town of Esperanza for a 2 minute drive to good food and nightlife. You can...

A lovely peaceful place to stay on a beautiful island. Delightful, helpful hosts. Just a short distance from Esperanza with its pleasant, laid back restaurants. Wonderful unspoilt beaches. Go to Vieques now before it's as touristy as other places in the Caribbean.

My wife and I just returned from our first visit to Vieques and Hector's-by-the-Sea, and it will not be our last. We loved the island, and especially enjoyed our stay at Hector's. We stayed in Casita #1 (the Mango) and found it perfect for our needs. The casita has a refrigerator, microwave, and a coffeeemaker, and is very comfortable for...

How to begin describing this sea-side paradise? In a sentence: Hector's By the Sea is magical. My husband and I stayed there last year (January 2007), and before departing, made reservations to go back this year in January 2008. This review is being written upon our return from our 2nd stay (January 20-27, 2008.) We already booked to go back...
