Overview

With isolated sands, clear waters and pristine SWING tennis courts, the W Retreat & Spa on Vieques Island (located just 8 miles east of Puerto Rico) is tailor-made for outdoor enthusiasts. However, high-end indulgences are offered both in and outside this tranquil retreat. You can imbibe in a replenishing treatment at the AWAY Spa before escaping to the 350-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, a signature W bed and a private balcony or patio in your guest room. When you're ready to eat, delight in light fare at WET or savor authentic Caribbean-inspired dishes as Sorcé. Though recent guests say getting to Vieques can be a trek, they agree that the W property – with its striking scenery and warm staff – is well worth the time spent in transit. As part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn or use points here. Note: The hotel was impacted by the 2017 hurricanes and is expected to reopen in 2019.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

READ MORE 

Hovering over two gorgeous beaches, this über-hip resort is the island's hot spot for urbane fashionistas, yet manages to still be family-friendly. W's trademark sexy sophistication is reflected in white, taupe, and chocolate color schemes enhanced by natural woods and playful rainbow accents.

Fodor's Choice

The black pool is a beauty, though the pool area as a whole is a bit small. The beach also looks nice, but it’s not one of the island’s best, so consider renting a car to better explore the island.

Condé Nast Traveler

Designed for the terminally hip, the W is a beach house–style explosion of reclaimed wood, brass, painted steel, and concrete. Intense color pops up here and there in the art, rugs, throw pillows, and playful furniture (like the multicolored wire pods cradling lounge beds for two). The eager-to-please staff provide good service, cheerfully answering the phone with the genie-like phrase 'What is your wish?'

The 30-acre property leaves plenty of room to spread out, from two secluded beaches to a bi-level infinity pool, tennis courts, and a spa. Guests convene for pre-dinner drinks around the cliff-top fire pit before ordering Vieques-style Mofongo at the new Sorcé restaurant.
