El Blok Hotel

158 Calle Flamboyán, Esperanza, Vieques, 00765, Puerto Rico

Fodor’s Expert Review

This boutique hotel opened to rave reviews in 2014, in part because of the unique architecture and design—minimalist concrete, open-air common spaces—and in part because of José Enrique, the famous chef heading up its restaurant. Not everyone's enchanted by the minimalism, however, which also characterizes room amenities; there are no phones or TVs, and storage space is nonexistent. But for many, El Blok is a refreshing break from the routine of daily life and a great place to unplug and relax.
