Bad first impression, but ok overall

  • 2 of 5

The hotel looks like it was recently very popular, with a pool and patio bar, but both of those are closed now. However the pool itself was very nice and clean and pleasant to swim in, and the view from the patio and pool is amazing. Be careful when you open the patio door as we ended up with lots of mosquitos in the room.

The room itself smelled badly of dampness when we first arrived, and though the sheets were clean you could see hair in the pillow cases. There was dried blood on the side of the bed and on the sheets. The toilet handle has to be held down for at least 30 seconds but ultimately flushes.

After a few hours of air conditioning and using the fan (both worked very well!) the room smelled fine. The room did not have wifi, but did come with 4 towels and 2 beach chairs which were very handy for the beach. Hand soup and bar soap was provided. There is a restaurant at the hotel as well that opens around 8am.

You will need to rent a golf cart or car for this location, as it is about 4 miles from town and there aren't really taxis on the island. We had a hard time getting there when we first arrived from the ferry. That said, you'll want to rent a golf cart or car if you're there for more than one day anyway (book in advance!)

If you are just looking for a place to lay your head, this place is fine. With a few more detailed touches, this place could be very nice.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thanks for your positive comments regarding the condition of the pool and the views from the balcony. We are even more grateful about your comments regarding the condition of the sheets. We have immediately responded to your observation by replacing the old sheets with new ones. We have also made adjustments to the toilet for a more "user friendly" flushing experience. We do have to report that the total flushing time was found to be not greater than 7 seconds...and it has been adjusted to be reduced to a 1 second flush :o) We struggled a bit trying to find the blood spots, but we did see some tiny spots on the side. Completely unacceptable and a total miss on our behalf. Our most sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Although we try really hard to maintain a very high standard for cleanliness, sometimes we miss some spots. Your stay right around the Christmas holiday might explain why we fell short of your expectations regarding the condition of the room. For our future guests, please note that if for any reason something is not up to your expectations, we are always available to respond and correct any situation. We might not have the structure and consistency of a Hilton Brand Hotel, but as a family owned Vacation Home Rental Property, we strive to provide our guests with the best possible experience. It is our promise and guarantee that we will respond to correct or compensate for any items that are not up to your expectations. Although unlikely, in some instances we might need your help to identify those items...and we much rather know about those during the first minutes of your stay so that we can immediately respond and assure that you leave pleased with the experience. Enjoy Culebra!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, it was an absolute pleasure working through Carlos. He responded quickly to all my inquires prior to our stay here, walked me through the process of booking and payment very patiently, and made sure we knew if we needed anything at all while there, to contact him and it would be tended to quickly.

The listing was accurate and the pictures don't do the entire property justice (much prettier in person!). The unit was very clean and was obviously well-maintained. There's a restaurant very close by, and a small convenience store not much further away. If my wife and I had stayed for more than just a couple days, we probably would've rented a vehicle on the island, and driven to a grocery store in town, and utilized our kitchen. As it was, we got the phone number of a couple local drivers, and used their services to get around the island (fare was usually $5 per person, per ride, including to Flamenco Beach). Another review for this property put it best, "This is a Condo-resort with resort-like amenities."

I could go on and on about our experience, but suffice to say, I would recommend this property to anybody looking to spend time on Culebra, not to mention I will definitely stay here again in the future.

NICE!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a small but really nice studio, perfect for a small family. Everything was just as the pictures presented. The bed was really comfy. and everything was neat and clean. Carlos was easy to get a hold of and very accommodating. It was almost like staying at a family's place. There's a nice little area at the left end of the lawn, right under the trees, where we set our chairs (okay, Carlos' chairs) and relaxed by the edge of the inlet to the bay. The pool was real nice and the swim up bar served excellent pina coladas! The restaurant was being renovated, but the room has a kitchen with everything we needed to cook or reheat. We brought food in from town and ate on the balcony watching the peacocks put on a show for us. For lunch one day, we ordered some take out from the store on site and ate out by the pool. The food was very good and reasonable.

This is a great little place. We will definitely stay here next time we visit Culebra. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Excellent - Just as Described

  • 5 of 5

Do not believe the negative reviews about this property. You should rent from Carlos; his communication was timely and he is open and honest. The unit was just as described and the photos are of the unit which is beautifully furnished and fully equipped.

We had use of beach chairs, cooler and Dish-network TV. The kitchenette was fully equipped with everything we needed.

If you expect a full service resort, do not stay in Culebra. This is a Condo-resort with resort-like amenities. The restaurant is closed, but we knew that in advance. The store on the property has a lunch counter, however and the food there was great.

You should have transportation to get to the beaches, stores, and dining. Taxies are cheap on the island, however.

I have stayed at the Wynn and the Waldorf and I'd stay here again.

Best property on the island!

  • 4 of 5

This property has all of the larger island amenities with the small island feel. Great pools and grounds, but I wish the "hot tub" was hot....it is only a couple degrees warmer than the regular pool, Property is on the water, but there in not a usable beach. Very few properties on Culebra have a beach however so this is not a big drawback. Unit is neat, updated and well kept. GREAT location on property right above the pools. Cats, chickens, ducks and peacocks roam the property for that rural feel. Insects were NOT a problem at all. Very comfortable bed and quality linens. We had 4 people in the unit and it was a little tight being a studio, but you make allowances to be on such a unique island as Culebra. Owner, Carlos, was very accomodating and easy to communicate with. My ONLY complaint was the poor quality mattress on the pull out sofabed, but the owner said he is correcting this soon. Beach chairs, bag and towels were provided in the unit. Most island properties have AC units that are noisy, but this one has central air and is much quieter.

We would DEFINATELY stay here again.
