If you are looking to get away with your sweetheart ,from the hustle and bustle of the big city, this is the place to go! I went to the Hix Island House for the Christmas and New Year's Holiday with my boyfriend. We absolutley loved it! When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with our room-lofts as they call them....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hix Island House. The room was open-air and it was really great to hear all the frogs and birds during the evenings. We had a mosquito net over the bed and only had problems with bugs at dawn and dusk. The kitchen was well-appointed with a blender, coffee grinder and french press and...

While we had a wonderful time on Vieques, I don't know that I'd stay at Hix again after our experience. Most of the bugs were avoidable by wearing bug spray all the time - it is open air, so this is a necessity - sleeping under the mosquito netting in the room. However, I was eaten alive by bedbugs, which...

We take every guest's concerns very seriously here at the Hix House, and responded to this complaint thoroughly and promptly. Despite finding nothing in the bed, we still removed all of the bedding material, sprayed thoroughly, and remade the bed with brand new sheets and egg crate mattress. When she moved to another loft, she had the same complaint. When...

A friend and I stayed here while in Vieques for a wedding. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was at least forewarned about what kind of experience this would be, but I never expected it to be as extreme as it was. As others have stated here, there are people who love this hotel and the experience they...

A week at the Hix House isn't like anything else. The architectural lofts are painstakingly designed and appointed -- full breakfast is in your fridge and every detail is proactively considered. But it's different -- no windows means you're sleeping with stars and nature in view and within earshot; mosquito nets protect you when necessary (which was rare; there weren't...

This trip to Vieques my friend and I stayed at the Hix Island House, a lover's paradise which is also a B & B. The difference with this B & B is that the guests cook and serve themselves breakfast. The geometrical shapes of the buildings are fascinating and protecting the environment is their mantra. Nestled in the mountains, the...

I don’t even know where to start, honestly, except that from the time you park next to the reception house to the time you’re staring at the incredible view from your loft, your jaw will not have closed, and the only words that will cross your lips are “wow” and “Oh. My. Gosh.” Hix truly lived up to everything I...

How can you describe the Hix Island House as anything but amazing. For one of the first times in my travels, the hotel lived up to the preconceptions and expectations I had created before my trip. To start, our hosts were Diane, Michael, and Joanne, three of the nicest people on the island as far as I'm concerned. Diane checked...

We stayed at the Hix House for our honeymoon - it was the perfect choice. The Hix House is a sublime experience - the architecture blends seamlesly into the hillside. Waking up to the gorgeous sun on our porch and watching the birds was fantastic. The pool is gorgeous and a perfect spot for a much needed afternoon nap. Brenda...

Beauty, harmony, style, minimalist luxury and comfort are truly attainable without compromising, intruding on or perverting nature. This is the message eloquently conveyed to us by the Hix Island House. This was our second visit to this unique place and we can categorically state that, at Hix's, we experience the friendliest coexistence of environment and a man made resting habitat...
