Our family stayed at this BB for 3 times; once with 1 baby, then with 2 babies, and then when the kids got bigger, around 7/8 years old. Dana is an amazing woman that keeps the place running very simply, but in a very picturesque way. Everything is neat and clean, and very calm, once it's in the middle of...

This is a wonderfully relaxing, low-key place to stay. It is on a very secluded hill, only a few minute drive from many beaches. Great views of the surrounding hills. Highly recommend renting a jeep so you can come and go as you please, and explore the different beaches. It is a B&B, so it is and feels like a...

Don is a wonderful lady who is very helpful with any information about the island. Great Escape was wonderfully relaxing and gave you a very peaceful feeling. The grounds are beautifully kept. The rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable. My husband and I will definitely stay here again!

You're going to love Vieques! Great Escape can be whatever you make it. Overall it was a very pleasant stay - and I'd recommend it ! You must have a car - don't under-estimate this - even it being a small island we still drove 200+ mi in 4 days. Esperanza, where most of the restaurants are - is really...

The rooms are light and airy, the beds comfortable and the grounds immaculately kept. Dana is extremely attentive and caring and ready to help out with any request, be it in relation to your stay at the Great Escape or in Vieques itself. It was very relaxing either to sit by the pool and read or to adventure out and...

My husband and I originally booked 2 nights at the Great Escape as part of our honeymoon trip to Puerto Rico. It only took one look at the breath-taking view of the property grounds for us to know we couldn't leave after only two nights. We ended up changing our return flight and extending our stay for a total of...

This is a beautiful property with kitschy lawn ornaments, a pool, beuatiful trees, a manicured lawn, and a great common outdoor dining area. Dana and her staff are great - very customer service oriented and attentive. They serve breakfast each morning on the outdoor patio from 8-10am with various fruit, breads, freshly scrambled eggs, coffee, juice, and cereal. The outdoor...

We spent four relaxing days at Great Escape on Vieques, We had stayed here twice before (four and five years ago) and liked it very much. We had remembered it as being a wonderfully quiet and and clean place to stay. As Vieques, particularly Esperanza, has grown so much and gotten that much busier with visitors, we appreciated all the...
