“Horriable!!! Do not stay here.”
Reviewed December 19, 2010

For the price of $229 for the "best" room, we could have had a house on the beach. The bed nearly reached the floor in the middle. I finally moved to the sofa which was nearly as bad. Sheets were so old and wouldn't stay on the bed, found that we were sleeping on the plastic underneath, YUCK! The shower spewed water into the wall and out into the kitchen - 3" on the floor. Couldn't open the windows as the cranks fell off. The overhead fan was so old that the paddles were warping. Couldn't check in until 3-4:00. The gal at the desk didn't show up until 4:30. Postage stamp size towels no soap. Air conditioning in the back room only and very very noisy.

I wanted to contact the owner, who is someone in NY whose name was not available to us. Doubt that we will ever see our $50 deposit.

When we made our reservation at Kokomo, we knew we weren't staying in a fancy place, but called to make sure if both rooms in the PH suite had AC. They told us both rooms did, and when we arrived we found ourselves with one room with AC. We complained, but they told us that because we made our reservation through the Internet we had to call a place in New York. Just to get us out of the way the administrator (the American guy) told us that he would send someone to" fix it" (I'm back in PR and still waiting). To be able to have a good night sleep we took the fan from the outside room and brought it to one that had the AC... did I mention it didn't work properly? We had an awesome couples PJ party... YEY =C. Two days had passed since our first complain and we saw the administrator again at the bar underneath the hotel. My friend decided to asked him for the technician that he “was going to send”, but he exploded and began to yell, plus threatened to call the police.
I'm a Puerto Rican who has lived in the States and PR. I have NEVER in the past been treated this way. This is the type of people my Puerto Rico doesn’t need. They come, establish a shop, bar, or guesthouse (whatever) and treat people like garbage. We need people who welcome and promote good tourism. Culebra is a paradise with nice and welcoming LOCAL PEOPLE. If YOU are planning on staying at this hotel I highly suggest NOT TO. Look for another place, or stay camping... believe me, it will be better. THIS PLACE IS A FRAUD!

We actually arrived in Culebra without a reservation, and Mike at the Kokomo was extremely gracious and really helped us out with a room that would fit our (limited) budget - which no one else on the island would do - we know because we walked around to quite nearly every other lodging establishment and asked - they all had vacant rooms and it was a quiet week, but were inflexible and frankly seemed shocked that we didn't want to pay $130/night for a bed and a bathroom - I felt every other place was really overpriced for what we'd be getting. Lodgings here are basic and are not all ideally located, some off on dark side streets or rather away from the "action" in this small town. The Kokomo is right by the ferrry and town and dock with cool big fish to watch, has a fun bar downstairs, and they are about to open a new bakery next door - wish it had been open when we were there, but we really enjoyed going to the Pandeli early each morning for yummy breakfasts.

Our room was basic, and had a few loose fixtures, no towel or maid service, but was totally great for what we were there to do - go to the beach! We just needed a place to sleep and shower, and we got cold A/C, a quiet place to crash, and Mike and other staff were always really helpful and fun to chat with- got us towels, gave advice, even returned our snorkel gear when we left before the rental shop opened. We loved the location and at night it is nice and quiet bc it is not on the main street - I saw some hotel rooms right on the street and didn't think you'd get much rest there.

Overall a great place to stay in Culebra with a great owner who really helped out us eager, adventurous travelers without a reservation who just wanted to enjoy the spectacular beaches and not spend a ton of money. We stayed all week, changing our plans because Culebra is a paradise and we will be back. Next time would like to book the kitchenette units they have on the top floor - amazing views of the ocean, and with a kitchen you will really save money in Culebra as eating out is expensive.

Thanks Mike and team! Be back soon we hope!

The pictures of the place don't give an idea of the dark,dirty,hot(ac was broken) and disgusting place this so called hotel is,find another place,I booked two nights and stayed one ,when asked for refund they gave me all this b.s., in other words they make it pretty dificult...Again not worth even the modest price.

The bed was just a wooden slab with a comforter. Really. There was no mattress. Impossible to sleep. There were also bugs all over the air conditioner. The staff didn't seem to care at all. This place is the cheapest on the island, but I would recommend spending only $10 more and getting one of the nice bed and breakfasts.

Hotel Kokomo is right across the street from where the Ferry drops you off in Culebra. Its bare bones as far as ammenities--a bed, some drawers, a bathroom, and the brightest hot pink walls you've seen in your life to match the flamencos on the headboard. You're around the corner from good food--and a short Publico ride from Flamenco Beach, THE most beautiful beach in the world. The staff are friendly and hospitable, the rooms are very clean and its quiet at night.

My only heads up is to keep in touch with the front desk before you arrive, their hours are inconsistent from day to day and if you're running a little late, they might not be there, and they don't always answer the phone that they post on the door to call.

We stayed at the Kokomo in 2007 and enjoyed it very much. It was close to everything in town. The hotel/motel is no frills place, decent beds and space and I believe it was one of the very few places you can stay at with private bathrooms at that price range. When we go back to Culebra we plan on staying at the Kokomo again. The taxi vans ran from Kokomo to Flamenco beach for $1-2 per person back in 2007. This is not a standard hotel or motel with a front desk, we checked in at the office next door and they were also very helpful with any questions/requests we had. Overall, our best vacation ever! WE LOVE CULEBRA!
