Fodor's Review

The six Mediterranean-style villas here were the tiny island's first taste of luxury, and it's still a lovely place, to a large extent because of its perch across sprawling lawns that overlook breathtaking ocean. The mood is plantation-style cozy, from the intimate, well-spaced guest rooms to the open-air lounge. Carambola's, the Inn's restaurant, was once the island's most sought-after reservation, but it has since been overshadowed by some keen competition in Isabel

II and Esperanza. Constantly changing management hasn't helped the property retain its popularity or return it to yesteryear's splendor.

Past Its Prime

For what they charge in high-season, one would assume that the "cottages" and premises would be better mantained. Its clear that they don't want to spend the money to upgrade the franly 2star bathrooms since this place is always booked. The atmosphere is great, but doesn't make up for rooms where (i) the pillows seemed stained and musty (a no-no for $370 a night); (ii) the complimentary drink on arrival was a half-emply minibottle of rum with warm

coke; and (iii) the sheets and towels were threadbare. I am all for a bohemian experience, but not at these prices. The pool is nice, but dirty. Eat dinner here. No need to stay here at these prices. Its unfortunate, since the place has potential if the owner invested more time and energy into it. Its past its prime.

INN IN VIEQUES NOT SAN JUAN

I'm not rating this inn, just happened to notice that the address says "San Juan", when in reality this inn is on the island of Vieques.

Blue Inn - Dreamy Escape

We stayed at the Inn on the Blue Horizon in 2002 and again in 2003 - and found it to be one of the most magical vacation experiences we've ever had. Don't know what some reviewers are talking about - we were just delighted.

Not worth it

There's no question that The Inn on the Blue Horizon is beautiful. It's views of the water are lovely, as are the rooms and the pool. But the general atmosphere here is unwelcoming and unpleasant. After paying quite a bit for the room --- $370 per night during the winter months -- the Inn proceeds to nickle and dime you at every turn. Breakfast -- which has TERRIBLE service (be prepared to wait an hour to be served by the miserable staff) will cost

you, then you'll have to pay $10 per day to use the gym and $5 to get an extra cup of coffee throughout the day. (The first cup is free.) I certainly would not recommend this place to others.

What a disappointment

Just could not believe this place. A rule book for guests a mile long, fraying and stained bed linens, and one skimpy bath towel per person. Vieques is NOT what guide books tell you it is.

No Horizon Bluer

Stayed here for two nights in March, and it was great. You definitley get what you pay for, in terms of service and style. The highlight was our room. Very large, well apointed, with a beatiful terrace surrounded by bouganvilla. ?The bathrooms are large (seperate his/hers sinks). The food was a bit pricey. Cafe Blu while definitely romantic is over priced. Prices rival those at some of Boston and NY's finest restaurants and the food comes close.

I would also highly recommend Casa Cielo as an alternative to Inn.
