Stroll along the boardwalks of Malecon, with sea and sand on one side and charming local shops and restaurants on the other. Local artisans sell their craft throughout the day along this boardwalk, with plenty of tasty spots to eat or to enjoy beachside cocktails. The clear calm waters make it great for snorkelling and swimming, or lie back on the golden sands and catch some rays. Enjoy a saunter in the cooling breeze as the sun sets across a selection of bars hosting your evening's entertainment.

  • Nice views over the bay, interesting varieties of trees/plantings. Some beach, clear water and tidepools but kind of rocky. Good variety of restaurants here, something for everyone. It's touristy but ...  more »
  • My favorite part of our 7 day trip to Vieques was the 4 days we spent in Esperanza. Our hotel was located on the Malecon and we woke to lovely views each day. This area is a gem with amazing views of ...  more »
  • The Malecon is a place we visited many times during our month in Vieques, and it was so wonderful for people watching, sunset views, and activity! Loved it!  more »

  • My wife and I have stayed at Malecon House twice and loved it each time. We love the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere and especially the beautiful view at breakfast out front. The hosts are lovely people and went above and beyond to accommodate a work emergency for me, during their dinner no less! We cannot recommend this place enough. If serene and inviting is what you are looking for then Malecon House is absolutely for you. Looking forward visiting again! Say hello to my friend Coqui for me. PS - As a very welcome perk, the owners of the guest house have small coolers, folding chairs, umbrellas, and even some snorkel equipment they allow guests to borrow and take with them on their daily adventures to the beaches free of charge. I thought that was a very nice touch.
  • Clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious rooms, and right down the road from great food and that perfect island atmosphere. Cannot beat the view!! Would not hesitate to return.
  • Wonderful stay. The room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the view was incredible. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating, I would highly recommend!
  • We stayed here for a week and loved it. The whole place is relatively new and well-kept. We stayed in the room Buena Vista, which had plenty of room and a nice view of the ocean. The staff is super friendly and very knowledgeable of the island. Highly recommend.
  • We spent a week there and it was absolutely wonderful. This Inn is new, as clean as can be, with wonderful accommodations. There's even a library on the second floor. The breakfasts are everything you need to get you through the morning and even lunch. You will not find a nicer place unless you want to pay for the W Resort on the other side of the island. Beautiful place staffed by absolutely wonderful people. It's a 5 star hotel at a 3 star price.
