The Great Escape is a gem on a magical island. We stayed two nights in February of 2011 and had the place to ourselves with the exception of one other couple. The property sits on top of a hill that offers stunning views of the island, oceans, as well as the colorful property itself, replete with a pool, hammocks and...

My family and I stayed at Great Escape for 3 days during the dates of December 9-11, 2012. We rented the 3 bedroom suite villa and it was 6 of us. We absolutely loved the place. This location is away from the hotels and away from anyone. The way to relax and to enjoy a real vacation with the family...

This is a homey, kinda funky guest house in the Vieques countryside. Each room is furnished differently. Some rooms have ocean views, others have countryside views. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room on the side away from the parking lot. Our room was clean, comfortable and had a nice balcony. Danuta, the lady who runs the...

Great Escape is a good compromise for people who want something clean, peaceful and attractive, but who don't mind a few quirks. You will find the great mixed with the not-so-great here, and as long as you're relaxed about it you'll love the place. For example, the tiles on our floors were absolutely beautiful and expensive looking. But our incredibly...

There is normally a two night minimum but our reservation fell in between two others, Dana allowed us to stay for one night. This hotel is located on Route 201 with handwritten signs pointing out the hotel. Be sure to keep a close eye for the signs. The driveway is very steep and uneven dirt path so you will probably...

In quality accomodation starved Vieques, this is one of the better places to stay. Located on top of a hll with almost constant trade winds, this B&B is 15 minutes (and $5 per person via publicos) away from the ferry terminal. Terrific fixtures, modern decor, a pool with views of the island and the ocean in the distance make this...

We stayed at the Great Escape for 4 nights and LOVED it. We were enchanted with the place from the moment we got there. We arrived at 10PM and Dana - the owner, was waiting for us. We were offered cold drinks and were introduced to the other guests that were on the terrace . The room was amazing for...

Certainly every experience at a B&B or hotel is going to be personal, and our time at Great Escape was not awful. However there were some things we wish we would have known prior to our stay: --There is a 10% "service charge" that is added at the end of your stay, in addition to the standard 9% lodging tax;...
