Had a nice stay at At the Waves . The pics of the place match how pretty it is . We stayed 2 nights in a 1BD lower floor condo and 5 nights in the 3BD upper floor place . Everything was clean and nice , The manager Dana was very helpful and kind . The biggest issue was lack of AC in both places . The 1BD unit had a really old small AC unit . It was basically non functional. So it made sleep kinda tough . The unit really needs replaced . So moved on to the 3BD place , the mosquitos in the stairway were like running a gauntlet every time you went in and out . I mean swarms of dozens of them . So that was rather unpleasant , at least in this unit the small bedroom AC units were newer and worked well. BUT .. the living room and kitchen are totally not air conditioned . the 3 BD's have small AC units but it was close to unbearable in the living room. So setting and reading/watching tv whatever was tough , I was surprised among all the great reviews this place gets that lack of AC outside the bedrooms wasn't mentioned. Maybe we were just there during an especially hot time ? And I'm FAR from a guy who likes really cold inside places , in fact I usually freeze in what feels comfortable to most. . But beds were comfortable , they had a nice selection of books to borrow , they supplied nice beach chairs and coolers , and even some other beach equipment . But IMO the AC situation needs addressed .
At the waves, was absolutely beautiful, the view was amazingly breathtaking. It was nice to wake up and walk out on the porch and get to see the ocean. I had a great time during my stay there ,they had all of the accommodations I needed. The pool was wonderful, we had a blast swimming all day . I will definitely go back and stay At The Waves.
Hi Cathy - This is the third time my clan and I have stayed at your “jewel of Puerto Rico” but the first time I’ve been compelled to tell about the truly fantastic Memorial Day week vacation I had with my two sets of cousins and their families at your Vieques resort, At The Waves. We were a group of 3 couples and kids that had been looking for the perfect venue for a long-awaited reunion. The villas gave us just that in our own tropical, private gated compound. The design and aesthetics of your resort were absolutely perfect! The units were clean and well maintained; each was fully stocked with utensils and sundries for the kitchens, towels, sunscreen and toiletries for the bathrooms, and books and a variety of board and outdoor game equipment in the living rooms (of which we partook almost nightly and for which even the kids eschewed their electronic media!). Personally, I am a particular aficionado of the harmonic use of space, and found that the tile floors and spacious openings between the rooms and the outdoors provided a seamless flow between indoor shelter and outside nature (I loved that I could walk sopping wet straight from the pool or beach through my living room to the shower and not have to worry about ruining carpet!). The manicured yet inviting landscaping complemented the buildings’ architecture, and I particularly enjoyed what I call your “Garden of Reflection” where I was able to grab a few solitary moments to escape the hassles of life-as-usual, even if only in my own head!Together we enjoyed evening rituals of sunset cocktail walks on the beach right off the front yard and morning foraging of enough sea glass, shells and other washed up ocean memorabilia to open a museum (the highlight of which was a life-sized tiki statue that we dug up and left at the pool garden to visit the next time!). Something different on the agenda virtually every day: snorkeling off the beach with the starfish (thanks for providing all the gear for our use and disposal), hiking through the old bomb shelter remains in Esperanza, and of course, shopping for knickknacks for the ladies! (Only sorry I didn’t have the time to do the open water dive I had wanted, but alas something to look forward to for the next visit.) Most of our dinners were outside on the patio straight off the barbeques so the kids could go right from the pool to the table without missing a beat, but we also dined at a couple of excellent restaurants in town for some special occasions. Even the weather was perfect, and I don’t know how you managed that!Finally, if I could make one suggestion to improve your ideal setting, which unfortunately is the same problem I had had on my previous trips: please find some way to make it easier to leave…!
We had such an amazing trip our 1st stay "At the Waves" we decided to return. What a great choice! It was even better than we remembered! The sunsets were incredible! The unit we stayed in was newly painted and pristine! They had everything we could have needed and the kitchen was stocked. The grounds were well manicured, the pool was crystal clear and we were back in paradise! Right outside the property we had the most beautiful private beach! We walked the beach every morning to watch the sunrise and found wild horses relaxing in the shade! It was surreal! We never ran into another person – only horses!The unit also had snorkeling equipment available. We took advantage of them and ventured out. The water was so clear it felt like we were in swimming in a massive fish tank. The kids loved diving to admire the starfish – We played studied them and returned them to their home on the ocean floor. Honestly, it was a step back to a world we don’t see. Hopefully we can return again soon for our next adventure…. (All the kids want to know is when!)
Our family of 17 had an amazing time At the Waves! Only negative thing I could say is it could use a lil sprucing up, such as newer appliances, water filter on kitchen sink, and an umbrella on the patio table that works.... But despite what I just listed, it was amazing!!! Definitely rent a golf cart to roam the island and for sure do Bioluminescent Bay!
