“I'll be Back!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

We couldn't have been happier staying at Bravo Beach. We stayed a total of 8 nights in Vieques, all of them at BBH. The spot is about a 3 minute walk from the ferry on the Northern side of the island called Isabel Segundo. SO glad we chose to stay here rather than somewhere on the trendy touristy South side in Esperanza. BBH offered us lovely breakfast everyday, really nice big beach chairs and beach towels and even a cooler bag. When we arrived Carl (the owner) was nice enough to go out of his way and find us a vehicle because we spaced it... I feel like there were a number of times I said "Wow! Thank You soo much'! The two pools were also amazing. The back courtyard pool backed up right to their Honor Bar, which we thought was such a clever idea. I remember thinking that there wasn't one complaint I had. I'm serious! The rooms were simply decorated and super clean, the staff were all helpful and polite... Love Love Loved it. And I'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: The beach front room was amazing.

My wife and I had a great visit at the BBH. It's run by a really lovely young couple, and they've done a great job restoring what was apparently quite an old facility. Things look great now - rooms are nice (highly recommend the 2nd floor ocean view rooms) with a nice bed and are generally very clean; two (albeit small) pools, one of which is ocean side, and a really nice courtyard with an inexpensive honor bar. They're both very helpful when you need anything.

The only minor downside was the shower water could be a bit inconsistent - on two occasions, it wasn't possible to get anything other than lukewarm water which was a bummer after scuba diving. This could have been a one off problem.

All in all, highly recommended, reasonably priced hotel in a great location, staffed by a great couple who obviously care a lot about the property.

Room Tip: 2nd floor ocean view

Dear InColor42,

Thank you for your review, and we are pleased to hear you had a wonderful time at our hotel as well as on the island.

In response to your review:

I am sorry to hear that you had difficulties with the hot water in your room. Had we been made aware of this problem during your stay, we would have been more than happy to have rectified the situation. The comfort of our guests is incredibly important to us, and as a result of your comments, we will be repairing (or replacing if necessary) this water heater so future guests will not experience this issue.

Again, thank you for taking the time to submit a thoughtful review of your stay with us. We truly enjoyed getting to know you during your stay!

Recently finished up a stay at Bravo Beach Hotel (BBH) and couldn't be more pleased! We stayed in the Garden Suite and enjoyed 2 pools just footsteps from room. The proprietors, Carl and Janna, are welcoming and want you to enjoy your stay.
Rooms are provided with coolers and chairs, and great big fluffy towels for the beach. It was pure relaxation and we loved coming back from the beach and enjoying a beverage (or two!!) from the well-stocked honor bar.
Carl and Janna gave us recommendations on different things to on the island, and we enjoyed every minute. Hoping to come back soon!

Room Tip: Ocean view is worth it!

My fiancé and I are spontaneous. As such, we planned our vacation to Puerto Rico the day before we left. Once there we decided to plane hop over to the romantic Island of Vieques. We found out that hotels are booked weeks to months ahead during the busy season which we did not. To our surprise we found one room open at the Brave Beach Hotel. I have to tell you that we felt so blessed to have found this place by chance. It was clean and the owner was friendly. After trekking the island we noticed that the Bravo Beach Hotel was not only clean but also well maintained as compared to the other Hotels. The swimming pool in the back butts up against the beach where the sunset is simply incredible and romantic especially when in the pool with your partner. The roofs of the hotel have chairs to relax in and hey there is another pool in the court yard. I am telling you that you will not be disappointed if you decided to stay at the Brave Beach Hotel. And it is hard to find an owner who truly takes pride in his hotel like this one does. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Book ahead of time and take the time to truly investigate what you will really get. Pictures can be...

Bravo Beach Hotel was purchased by the new owners about 8 months ago. You will see in some of the reviews from the winter that they were under renovations but those are now completed. The hotel is very close to the ferry so you won't have to travel far. It is right on the ocean located outside of town, in a very quite location. The hotel is modern, sophisticated, while still maintaining the "laid-back" feel of the island. They owners are very welcoming and accomodating; what you would expect from a polite mid-western couple. We booked their courtyard room (the cheapest option) and when we showed up Karl(owner)informed us that they had a cancellation and they were upgrading us to the ocean-front suite for two nights (because as Karl said, "it's your honeymoon afterall.") The room was breath-taking, with a private patio overooking the ocean. We moved to the room we booked originally on the third night and this was nice as well, smaller but just as comfortable and has all the same amenities. Each room is equiped with a flat-screen tv/dvd player, air conditioning, hair dryers, Aveda toiletries, 2 beach chairs, 2 beach towels (in additiona to normal bath towels), and a cooler. All the beach items you can take off-site when you do beach exploring. The two pools are inviting. There is a patio area in the courtyard/garden that has a new large gas grill for the use of guests. There is also a very reasonably priced, fully equiped honor-bar, where you can make your own non-alcoholic/alcoholic drinks and simply write down your selections which will be added to your bill at the end of your stay. We do advise all staying here to rent a car of at least part of your trip. The island is spread-out and the beaches in the wildlife refuge are not to be missed. Please note - there is no hotel accessible to thse beaches so the Bravo Beach i just as good as an option as others.
