Casa Ensenada Waterfront Guesthouse
Ranked #9 of 20 Culebra B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 3, 2010

Stayed in Casa Ensenada the second week of July, we rented the Grande and it was great, the bed was comfortable and it has a great view of the bay. There was not very much musquitos that week, but the place provides mosquito repellent and also they had Citronella candles outside so that you can light them up when if there is mosquitos in the patio, I thought that was nice of them to provide this for their guest. I have stayed in other places in Culebra and this was the first time that they had Citronella Candles for the guest. We took advantage of the free kayak and paddle around the bay and that was a great exercise. I try to go to Culebra every year and I have stayed in many different places and this place was very nice, I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed: July 2010, traveled with family

My family and I stay at the Grande Room. It was clean and spacious. In the kitchen you have a beatiful view to the Waterfront at the dock. The livingroom was big and comfortable. The room have a bathroom and a king bed with clean towels.
We have a wonderfull weekend at Casa Ensenada. We went to the Flamenco beach all day and in the night stay at the terrace in the dock to relax and use the kayak. We went to eat at Dinghy Dock. We recommend Casa Ensenada Waterfront to stay and have a nice weekend.

I am not good at writing reviews but I will just list the things I love about this down.

- Price is affordable
- Has a beautiful dock for chilling.
- Easily walkable from Airport and Dock
- Near to the eating places
- Has good facilities, like kitchen etc.
- FREE Kayak.
- Bed is comfortable
- Free Internet (not the fastest but works. :) )
- Got snorkeling gear ( first come first serve )
- Along the publico route. Can ask the publico to drop you at the front door
- Good Security
- Homely Feeling.

Only thing is that you got to keep the mosquitoes out. But they provide insect repellant. It is tropical after all.

Didn't put pictures because have myself or my gf inside.

Definitely try the food at "Dinghy Dock" out.

We rented the smallest room and felt it was a fair deal. It is not the ritziest place ever, but it is far from the worst place I have ever stayed. The staff was friendly and the locals were helpful. We walked all over the island (beautiful beaches!) and enjoyed this central location. The island is hot and has mosquitoes (which is expected) but the AC worked great and keeping the door shut kept the mosquitoes out of the room. The TV worked great for what little time we did spend in the room. And sitting out on the dock before boarding the ferry back was very relaxing and has great views. If I were returning to the island, I would stay at Casa Ensenada again.

This place was so disappointing. It is just a dump - there is no other way to describe it. The terrific view on their website (from a kitchen window that overlooks the water) is from the grande unit, and it was not available to rent because that's where the owner lives. The two units you have to choose from have absolutely no view; they feel like maid's quarters. The photos are extremely misleading. Staying here just about ruined our trip. Also, the boats that they rent out are in serious disrepair.

The specific complaints by this guest are misleading and wrong. We support that position with the following:
• Regarding the views and photos on the Casa Ensenada website. The views from the rooms are stated correctly: Grande has “Harbor Views”, Estudio has “Partial Harbor views”, and no view is listed for the Pequeño unit. The photos of amenities and conditions at the guesthouse are factual and accurate
• Regarding availability of the rental units. Because of generally high demand, reservations should be made well in advance to book the unit desired. We were staying in the Grande unit for a few days during a traditionally slow rental period, mid May. We do not “live” there.
• Regarding rental boats. We do not rent out boats. There were no rental boats at the dock. We have no idea what the guest is referring to.

The guest did not mention any complaints to us at the time of the rental. Curiously, they did not post their review until a year later.

The guest’s negative opinions are refuted best by reviews from other guests, as posted at the Casa Ensenada website.

We arrived and we're not 'super fancy' people...but we were so disappointed. The screens were filthy - the bed was BROKEN (they fixed it the next day) my favorite sarong was stolen, the room was far smaller than it looked on line, and we cannot figure out how this place got decent reviews in FODORS guide. We absolutely loved Culebra but would never recommend Casa Ensenada. The 'waterfront' view in the morning was pleasant enough but that's about all this place has going for it.

The specific complaints by this guest are misleading and wrong. We support that position with the following:
• Guest rooms, including the windows and screens, are cleaned regularly. The guest is wrong; the screens were clean.
• Unfortunately, the bed frame was broken and it was not apparent to the cleaning staff. The bed was fixed promptly the next morning. We refunded one day’s rental and the guests said that was a satisfactory resolution.
• Photos of amenities and conditions at the guesthouse are factual and accurate.
• As with lodging facilities in general, Casa Ensenada guests are advised, in writing, to keep their rooms locked. Our room cleaning personal did not take anything from the room. We believe the loss did not happen at Casa Ensenada.

The guest’s negative opinions are refuted best by reviews from other guests, as posted at the Casa Ensenada website.
