Words cannot express how beautiful The Great Escape is. The property itself, which is maintained by the nicest man (Gary), is stunning. It includes a beautiful in-ground pool, banana and papaya trees, a swing, hammock, garden and wonderful flowers. The pool is open all hours which is also a perk. A fridge is stocked with water, soda, etc and is...

My stay in Vieques was at Great Escape - a small inn or bed and breakfast. For those of us on a budget, clean rooms with private bath and nice views Lovely grounds and a pool. Breakfast included daily. This property is in the middle of the island just a few miles from beaches and Esperanza town. Book your own...

What an experience! Great Escape is such a gem on the enchanted Isle of Vieques. We stayed two nights and felt like we were in a secluded, romantic garden of eden. Dana is a gracious and unpretentious hostess. She ensures her guests are happy and will do whatever necessary to make you feel comfortable. Its a special place where life...

I really liked it but as most things in Vieques it is not your "Hilton" style hotel. The rooms don't have TV or WIFI but it is really THE great escape We relaxed and enjoyed the picturesque atmosphere. The owner (manager) is super friendly. The bedroom was very clean and they do a great job making you feel at home....

Dona, the hostess runs a tight ship. The place is well appointed and maintained. It is cleaner and nicer than you might expect in this part of the world. Dona and her staff are delightful, friendly and very helpful. Great Escape is designed for relaxation. A poolside Casita provides a common area for breakfast, or enjoying an evening libation. It...

The staff was very amenable and the facilities were very clean. The room surpassed my expectations! Would be convenient to have a car, but if you don't, Donna can drive you most places for a small fee.

This is an eco-friendly bed and breakfast. Part of being eco-friendly is conserving energy which explains the reasoning behind their request to shut off the a/c as you leave your room. I have noticed complaints about this, and others blaming Dana for their own mistakes when booking which I think is unfair. That being said, I found Great Escape to...

This woman made a mistake and did not properly take our reservation. She did not take ownership for her mistake and charged us even though were not able to go, due to her mistake. I feel robbed of my vacation and my bank account. I would avoid this place at all costs, as this is not an honest person.

I booked a room with Great Escape & then read review that you need car when you are there. Literally, 30 minutes later, I talked with my husband and he said we don't want a car, & to cancel. I tried through Booking.com and their customer service representative said that she was sorry. She tried to get Dana/Donna the owner...

We decided to stay here after having a horrible experience with AirBNB. The owner, Dana, is a doll - very charming and accommodating. The pool is so relaxing and clean, the rooms have a European decor that I absolutely love! And a nice breakfast every morning included. A little outside of Esperanza, but so worth it! We'll be back for...
