Reviewed 8 December 2012

You are only a two minute walk to the water front but it is worth is as the bars stay open late on the Malacon (water front street). There are night sounds here, little frogs that sound like bird and Chickens from the neighboring property but with the Air Conditioner on they didn't bother me. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. Really enjoyed or three day stay. Don't expect much from Esperanza other than Beach, Scuba and Snorkeling. Make sure you find a spot without the sea grass to snorkel. On the west end of the Malacon there are some rocks which provide good snorkeling close to the Hotel. lots of beautiful fish and purple Urchins, be careful in the shallows so you don't step on them.

Room Tip: You have to do the BioBay while here, but bring bug spray and don't miss any spots.... We staye...

Great little guesthouse! It is within walking distance to the Malecon, but much more quiet than the places right on the Malecon (if you don't count the noise from roosters!) I loved all of the fruit trees on the property, and the cute dogs and cats roaming around. The pool was clean and refreshing and the room had everything we needed for our 2 night stay, including a kitchenette with a sink, fridge, microwave and table. Free wi-fi is also available in the sitting area by the office. John and Marilyn were very friendly and helpful hosts. We would definitely stay here again!

Stayed for a few days and enjoyed EVERY day!!! Had some great conversations with John and Marilyn. The room was very comfortable,clean and affordable. A nice quiet retreat (away from the noise on the Malecon) but the restaurants and rum bars are all within a short walk so no need to drive if you don't want to. Would recommend Casa de Tortuga to anyone who is visiting Vieques.

Stayed there for a few days in June. John and Marilyn were friendly, helpful hosts and great to talk to about Vieques. Casa Tortuga is so convenient to the Malecon and all the restaurants, it made it really easy. Accommodations and pool were immaculate. Great price for the quality and service. Look forward to staying there again.

Just up from the Malecon, it's close to the restaurants but less busy. Agree with the other reviewers about the location, cleanliness, convenience of the mercado and panateria around the corner. Enjoyed having a dip in the pool each evening. The air con wasn't able to keep our upper level room cool despite leaving it on 61 degrees for hours.

Marilyn and John were a great help re kayak and snorkel rentals and bio bay tours. They also supply beach towels and small coolers on request. The rooster next door is definitely exuberant in the morning so consider ear plugs.

A bonus is the resident iguana.

I'd definitely stay here again. At $85 a night it's the best value we found on our 6 day trip to Puerto Rico (2 days in Vieques).

Room Tip: Upper level rooms are warmer and the air con can't keep up.
