El Blok is a cutting edge boutique design hotel in Vieques, directly on the beach. The curved shape façade with cast iron brise-soleils allows the building to best utilise natural sunlight and ventilation. Furniture is carved from locally sourced driftwood and hardwoods, and works of Puerto Rican artists Javier and Jaime Suarez decorate the common areas.
Rooms feature air conditioning, a balcony, a work desk, a (laptop) safe, and a minibar. No TV! Private bathrooms come with a shower, a hairdryer and complimentary toiletries.
Rooftop plunge pool and gourmet restaurant. The hotel’s El Bike program enables guests to explore Vieques without the necessity of renting a car.
