We had the chance to stay at the Solaris on the top floor and the view was great, although it is a little bit more expensive than some of the other rooms, paying a little extra was definitely worth it. I'm not a big fan of lizards (this wasn't going to stop me from booking) and was expecting to see...

I visit this place everytime I had a chance. Is so beautiful no words can describe this place! Vieques is an amazing island in Puerto Rico located in the Caribbean. The Hix House is a gem in the middle of nature without TV or air conditioning, but not neccesary because you have the fresh air of the forest. There so...

Fly into Vieques and rent a jeep from Maritza rental to drive to Hix and use all week. Pack swimsuits, sunscreen and a few shorts and T-shirts. Morales is the grocery store which has everything you need. We made a delicious breakfast each morning and had enough leftover to take in a cooler for lunch. It was our 23rd Anniversary...

When the rooms and views are this beautiful, who needs to leave the hotel? It's even better than the pictures on the website. We've stayed in both Solaris and the Triangle buildings and both were perfect in different ways. Location is convenient to beaches and restaurants but you definitely need a car. Most days we had lovely breakfast and lunch...

The peaceful and withdrawn sanctuary and architectural delight invented by the Canadian architect John Hix has been around for some years already even though it was new to us. We had the pleasure of staying the gorgeous Matisse Loft, which features its own roof terrace, a wonderful place to star gaze and reflect on our lives. The staff are great,...

The Real Eco-Resort Experience! Outdoor showers, no phone , TV or AC! Therefore, If you are not up for this kind of experience Hix Island House it´s not the place for you! The space, location, and architecture are amazing! The ingredientes provided by the hotel for a DYI breakfast are super fresh and delicious!

For us the Hix House was perfect, everything was what we expected from the website, yet in a paradise oh my gosh we are here in person kind of way. We stayed in Solaris 1 - top level in early April 2016. The room was awesome. We couldn't have asked for a better layout and space for the 2 of...

I visited with my girlfriend at the end of April. We stayed in a ground level loft overlooking the pool. Pros: The space, location, and architecture is amazing. It's not cheap but it's not atrociously expensive. The pool is incredibly beautiful. The idea of providing a DIY breakfast is cool. Cons: The attention to detail is just not there. Once...

Thanks for your review and for bringing certain shortfalls to my attention. As a result of your review we have implemented a better system of communications between the front desk and housekeeping staff. Your net should have been perfect from the beginning, and changed immediately at your request. As for the fruit, unfortunately 80% of the food consumed in Puerto...

Love this place. One of the first green hotels in the world. But don't let it fool you when I say green...it's pure luxury. The staff is soon friendly and accommodating. I would do it in a heart beat. Great couples retreat.

This is the most beautiful "hotel-experience" I've ever had. This place is so amazing in it's simplicity - it's all in the arcitecture!!! I loved the shower outside, and the horse that roams the grounds along with it's crane. The yoga is also good.
