El Blok is an iconic inn by the sea in that it is a bar and
restaurant with rooms that aims to be a soft landing for the
intrepid traveller after a hard day of relaxation. Affordable,
simple rooms appointed with touch of luxe, it has a visual style
like nowhere else. Colored hidrolico tiles, exposed concrete, native
woods, clean, spare, exciting spaces. Smart bike rentals, riding and
hiking trails, island outdoor activities and many beaches nearby
complete the scene.
San Juan’s Jose Enrique, whose minimal take on a beach menu is pure
culinary genius, helms the restaurant and bar. All this in a
building that is gold leed certified for it’s sustainable design. El
Blok is part sculpture, part oasis.
Impossibly serene far flung beaches, great restaurants and only a
few hotels, Vieques is a strange jewel of an island amongst the
beauty and understated glamour of the Caribbean. Six miles to the
east of Puerto Rico, and a short 20 minutes flight from San Juan,
Vieques is in Puerto Rico’s backyard…and light years from anywhere.
