Overview

Quote:
We were in Vieques for 3 days, rented a jeep, and explored the beaches. We were so taken with all the gorgeous beaches and the variety of beaches that we did very little else. We left Vieques very relaxed, as there is little to do during the week beyond beach hunt and a little dining.Quick Tips: Despite various bad reviews for the Wyndham Martinau Bay, we stayed here. It’s a great hotel, although they do have some inconsistency in their service. The front-desk staff was very helpful, made dinner recommendations, fixed things quickly, etc. The concierge was very helpful and responsive, although she missed an opportunity to really surpass our expectations with a snorkeling trip.

The room was gorgeous, and we had an open bathroom with a huge tub next to the bed. We had great views of the ocean and pool. It was very clean and relaxing.

We went for breakfast and found this place to be odd. The owners run the place, and the man who took our order stunk. We were served the main part of our breakfast, ate it, and waited for the bill, then got up to ask for it, as we were tired of waiting, to find that the woman was still working on a fruit salad that we thought she forgot. The couple was fighting while we were there, and the woman/cook/owner yelled "fxxx something" very loud. The eggs, toast, and bacon were fine, but the orange juice was quite strange.

We asked the front desk at the Wyndham where to go for seafood, someplace local, and they sent us here. This is a place the locals eat. The seafood and asopao are great there, as is the service. The folks at the hotel recommended this place, but then at least 3 people mentioned that it was very slow. This was not our experience. We ate there several times and found the service to be quite quick, especially since the food is prepared fresh when you order.
