Need Puerto Rico Help...

My wife and I are thinking of visiting Puerto Rico for 4 nights in late February... I've done some research, and it seems like we would really like Vieques. Since we are staying such a short time though, I don't think we want to spend so much time (or $$) travelling from the airport...

Here's my question - What part of the Island would give us a nice beach, and a quiet setting, but would be a bit closer to San Juan (i.e. 30-40 min cab ride from the airport...)

We do prefer a smaller, quieter setting, with less hustle and bustle. Nightlife is not important.

Any suggestions are appreciated...

If you really like quite and no nightlife, you might want to check out Culebra. It is a gem, but not for everyone. VERY low key island. You can fly from P.R. (20-30 mins). Much less built up then Vieques, but spectacular.

Just got back from a 4-night trip to the Hyatt Cerromar/Hacienda del Mar in Puerto Rico. THE WORST TRIP EVER!!!
Room was old & needed upgrading. Bedding was worn. Service was horrible.
No one goes out of there way to help you.
My second day there I ate at the Swan Cafe hotel rest (breakfast) & got violently ill. I was throwing up in the tub while on the toilet bowl w/non-stop #2! I got no sleep & had to stay in the room for two days. When calling for a mop to clean the mess I made on the bathroom floor THREE times, I was shocked to discover that the mop would NEVER come! WE were forced to clean the mess ourselves w/scott towels. On top of this, I begged for many rolls of toilet paper that I would need throughout the night & they claimed they can only give me 2 rolls at a time. They really gave me a hard time about this, even knowing how ill I was! The one day that I got to go out, I played golf at Hyatt Cerromar & wasn't impressed w/course. Last night there, which was one of my only two nights out, it rained & we went into Old San Juan & Condado Plaza. Again wasn't impressed at all. Puerto Rico is very sleezy & unexotic. Wish I had gone to St. Martin or Bahamas instead. Would have enjoyed more & probably would not have gotten sick like I did! Save your money & go somewhere else!
