Mimi, the manager, was fantastic. I never actually met her in person, but her phone and email professionalism and promptness made me feel that I had. The location right in the... More

My son and I stayed in the Pequeno room. This room is depressing and truly pequeno. The grande room is the only room with a view and spacious enough so you don't feel claustrophobic. The windows in the pequeno room open to the carport and a hallway and situated right off the main road. We feel very cramped and uncomfortable... More

Thank you for your review. We value your opinion. It is clear in our description what each room offers and I am sorry you feel that way about our 'Pequeño' room (it means small in Spanish). If the other units would've been available we would've love to please you. Enjoy the rest of your summer! More

This is my first time at culebra, this place is at walking distance from every restaurant, bakery, grocery and port. Love the ensenada view, the room was excellent for the price, very clean rooms, the air conditioner excellent and the free kayaks are a most to do during the trip. Thanks for everything.

I stayed in the small apartment for 4 nights. I loved the location - short walk to downtown and restaurants, with access to parking across the street. There are kayaks and barbecue equipment for guests to use at no cost. Rooms are very clean and quite comfortable, with exception that the A/C is not as effective as we would have... More

Hola Maria! Thank you for staying in Casa Ensenada and for your review! The A/C units are fairly new Inverters but sometimes the guests change the settings and alter their efficiency.

Our family chose to stay at Casa Ensenada for our trip to Culebra, PR, and we couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience! The manager, Mimi, was a pleasure to work with from the moment we booked -- she was incredibly accommodating and willing to address all of our questions/concerns.

“The Grande has two rooms plus one bath. Main room with two futons is like a studio apartment with a small but full kitchen at one end. Enough space but don't think your getting two separate bedrooms in addition to a living room. Facility is clean and adequate but somewhat "tired" -- that's Culebra I'm told”
