This is located on the Ocean! That is the biggest plus the property has going for it. Also, there is a pool with a wonderful view out over the ocean. The hotel has a jeep for each room at a reasonable price. The Owners are very nice and great you with a smile and share all they can about the island. The island is wonderful! ( don’t tell anyone lol )
The property – well this is a property that the owners have obviously owned for a while and its showing. The property is wearing down – you can only go so long without doing maintenance. For the prices they are charging, Yes I expect much better! If this was a $50/night accommodation, I would accept the pit falls of this property.
However they are charging a good buck for the rental and they don’t put forth the effort to be worth that price.
In the room –
Old furniture, unkempt, dirty / filthy seats
Dresser to put your clothes in – no don’t open it! Most draws are broken and dirty.
Kitchen – clean everything before you use it!
Refrigerator – not cleaned in the last 6 months.
Bathroom – Yuck, Yuck and yuck. Moldy, dirty, - Yuck!
Bedroom – Wash the sheets and bedspread before you sleep on them.
Pool – nice pool, water was clean – I thoroughly enjoyed.
Pool chairs – broken, falling apart etc.
Beach Chairs / Umbrella / Cooler – Wonderful!!! (Thanks!! )
Jeep – Older but perfect for the island. If you rent a bran new Jeep – expect to pay for scrapes in the paint. It got me around just fine and at $40/day it meet my needs very well.
Yes, I spoke to the management. The Daughter was left in charge. She does not care and you are purely inconveniencing her to even be present at the property. She informed me that its kind of an place that your on your own to do the things that are needed during your stay. There is a laundry room and plenty of sheets and cleaning supplies that you are more than welcome to utilize to improve your comfort.
Her Parents that own the place – well they left for a few weeks shortly after I arrived. They were nice, but they are not minding the ship!
And the Daughter – could care less about the place!
Yes, I did my own laundry and some cleaning – What??? This is my vacation and I am paying for a decent place to stay.
I have stayed in many types of places, No I was not expecting the Ritz, but I have stayed in Mom & Pap type places in Culebra – semi similar… As a comparative, this was a bad deal. Way over priced for what it was.
