"Taxi Transportation is not reliable."
For the price I think the hotel is ok, but its pretty far away from the turistic areas of Culebra and....if you dont go to there with a big group, the Taxi transportation is NOT reliable at all...we called several taxi's and none of them appeared...or were still sleeping at 9am...ended up having to call the car rental to pick us up and rented a golf […] cart instead (which is more than enough to go anywhere around the island if ur not in a big group).

Staff were great. Room was spacious, clean, bed comfortable. Pools were awesome. We were ther 2 week October so very disappointed the pool bar was not open. Other than that were enjoyed our stay. Hotel restaurant was very good, but on,y open for dinner. Finding decent food on the island difficult. People on the island very friendly. Fare on the ferry […] from Fajardo was almost nothing. We enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was nice but the road to access the hotel was a mess. The facilities at the hotel were fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Well over price for no amenities. They have a pretty pool but if you came for the beach you will probably won't use. The room was very dirty and unkept. It smell and looked like it had not been cleaned for months. Literally there were piles of dirt, the sofa was very yellow and dingy. The Tvs did not work, their Wifi did not work, there was no water […] for a few hours ome day in the morning. They mowed the lawn very early in the morning having no consideration that some of us were on vacation and did not have to get up at 6:30 am. Very far from the beach, will need your transportation or pay a taxi. Overall very bad experience with this Sea Breeze. The gentleman at the reception desk was nice but useless if nothing is done about the problems. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sea Breeze is not a Hotel"
Sea Breeze Hotel- also know as Costa Bonita is not a Hotel. Sea Breeze is a privately own vacation apartments rental. They have two administration which cannot provide the service they offered online. When we got there they could not find our paid reservation. I was disappointed. We travel from far a way expecting hotel service. Towels were limited […] and in bad conditions. Also the bedding sheets and pillows. Coffee machine was broken. Limited toilet paper. Bathroom was dirty. Housekeeping service is available for extra charge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Laid back Culebra experience"
This hotel is characterized as "luxury" - and it is, by local standards. if you're looking for the kind of service you're used to in the States and for staff to jump at every beck and call, it won't happen here. But the staff are friendly and helpful and met every one of our requests with a smile. Okay, so there was only one key to our room, and housekeeping […] only came once during our week. But if we had left the key for them every day they would have cleaned every day. And when we needed clean towels and linens we stopped at the front desk and asked for them, and they gave us as many as we wanted. No, there were no utensils in the kitchen so we asked for some and they gave us what we asked for. In other words, you have to be proactive and not just sit around and complain about poor service and accommodations. This is Culebra - why would you want to be in a hotel where everyone is running at a NYC pace? We actually found it nice that no one was in our room unless we arranged for it - it felt private and like it was our experience to control as we wished. Plus the food was great, the drinks were great and often on the house and the pool was beautiful. The hotel is a bit off the beaten path, but it's a small island and with our rented jeep we got everywhere we wanted to go within 10-15 minutes. And, again, the hotel staff was so laid back we could park anyplace without a hassle. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"More like a condo village than a resort."
As a first time visitor to Culebra, I was trying to make a safe choice by picking this "resort". While it has many of the amenities of a resort, it has very little of the service you'd expect booking a resort. But I don't want to be too harsh. I soon realized the service was on par with the rest of Culebra - not much. It's a beautiful place to visit […] if you are adventurous and self sufficient and just want to linger on the gorgeous beaches, snorkel, sail.. all of which we were able to do from our base at the Sea Breeze. A better description of this property is a village of condos on a hill overlooking the Honda Bay that has a pool with a swim-up bar. We got a suite high up on the hill with an amazing view. The stay was worth it just for the view. It's a 15 minute drive from town and you'll need a car or jeep. It was very quiet, almost abandoned when we visited Mon-Wed. But I understand it can get busy and noisy on the weekends, so I'm glad we missed that. There were some nice helpful staff, particularly the water sports folks who will rent you a kayak, snorkel, sunfish, paddle board. We had a surprisingly tasty meal, but the restaurant was like the breakfast room in a budget hotel. But if I were to visit again I'd try one of the villas in town.

"Worst than I expected"
The island is beautiful, the beaches are the most clean and beautiful I ever seen, but the experience at the hotel was terrible. The sevice was very bad, the restaurant was not prepare for the amount of people staying in. The surroundings of the hotel smell very awfull. I will never stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"low value for the dollar"
The resort is not really run as a hotel but more as convenience for villa owners. Setting is beautiful but out of the way and would recommend renting a jeep to get around. Staff needs some major training as they just seem to mosey around with out any concern for peoples time. Culebra is a beautiful island but lacking in hotel options as I couldn't find […] a recommendation for a better lodging from the locals. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good potential, but poorly managed"
Decent property, poor management & staff, I would recommend travelers stay at other accommodations on the islandGenuine Expedia guest review
"DON'T STAY HERE!!!"
you need a car!! Is far away and isolated. The restaurant is not open many hours. We stayed for 4 nights and they did not clean it once!! We wvwn had to go to front desk for toilet paper!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Be afraid, be very afraid!!"
What a dump!! The website is very misleading. The pool side bar & grills are seldom open, the restaurant only open occasionally. There is no beach, no activities and the employees show up when it suits them. My "suite" had no towels, the floor was so filthy that I had to wear flip flops or my feet would be black. Peeling plaster & paint in the room. […] I watched some of the employees working their tails off, while others completely ignored customers & their jobs. The hotel is very disorganized & the manager (Mundo) was certainly trying his best to keep people happy, but his job is virtually impossible with what he has to work with. If you want good service, Joshua is the man to go to. Simon in the store is very helpful, as is Giovani at the desk. Don't expect to eat there, if the chef shows up, they are usually out of things on the menu. The manager himself cooked a burger for me because the chef chose not to come to work. It was the best burger I have ever eaten. Don't expect to find any tour or activity info available, you're on your own! If you plan to only sit by the pool all day & eat vending machine food, this is your place. Even with all the villas full, I only saw about 10 visitors actually there for any length of time, they don't spend their time or money there because it's limited and boring. Unless you consider the Cuban man who was old enough to be my father proposition me & want to come to my villa with beer and drink exciting! To sum it up, Definitely not worth it Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sea Breeze has nice views"
Sea Breeze is in a beautiful location and has terrific large resort-style pools. The food at the restaurant was good. Our room had a few glitches (one of the two bathroom sinks was missing and the bathtub handle was detached from the faucet). The views out the window were great, and the staff was very helpful and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Total misrepresentation of accommodations."
I thought that the view was spectacular and the pool was nice. That was the only highlight of this "hotel". It is far away from the town and the road to get there is in shambles. Each trip in a taxi is $5.00 each way per person. The so called restaurant is not open for lunch. We had no AC in our room when we first got there. They later fixed it. We […] had no cable so that part of our room description was false. And the next morning we had no water in our room. no one did. There was no hotel personnel available. They did not arrive until 8 AM. And they could not even offer a cup of coffee during dinner which was terrible. I would never recommend this place. The staff was pleasant but overworked, the same people have a variety of jobs. No manager in sight. Too bad because the island is beautiful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Jeep Rental required!"
No tv included (terrible if you are traveling with kids)...only one key per room, no place near to eat.... I would strongly recommend to rent a jeep (probably you will needed to get to your room too!) because its far from beaches and other Island amenities...unless you want to wait for a cab... This is a family business hotel and they still need to […] get their act together. But don't take me wrong, the place is pretty but still have room for improvement.

"So easy to improve"
Garbage along access road gives bad first impression. We knew about financial difficulty maintaining this condo site (it is not a hotel) despite very low guest occupancy, so our expectations were not high. Property is lovely with outstanding pool. Foot-path access to Mosquito Bay would make it better. Our one BR unit had A+ view, bed, linen, air-conditioning, […] TV with movie channel and coffee machine (both given free to us). Hot water OK (after adjusting) also microwave and frig. Absent were utensils, plates, coffee mugs, bath-plug, etc. Plumbing leaked. Advise guests to bring a can-opener, cork-screw, salt cellar. We would not recommend without a rented car. Our concern that there would be extra charges was unfounded. "Paid in full" was correct, but normally extras are the TV, expensive hourly rental of kayaks or the one Sunfish. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"take note: location... Mosquito Bay"
03/02/14 purpleyelidowl Saskatoon, Canada
I don't have anything nice to say about his place, unfortunately - other than, there were lovely staff at the front desk and in the restaurant. Perhaps this was an actual resort several decades ago. Now run down and dysfunctional. No one at the bar - which has an awesome view. Mosquitos without screens, we made mosquito hunting a sport (for about 2 hours) before we could go to sleep. Had to use deet spray anyway, which I normally avoid at all costs. Shame on us though, for not looking at the map and seeing that the resort is actually located on the appropriately named... Mosquito Bay. The slippery waxy floor never dried, the towels were small, bed was basic but acceptable. We paid an absolute fortune. We were happy it was available however, since the other place we had booked had made an error in our booking. In conclusion, we would never stay here again. It does have potential to be much better, with significant investment.

I came to this amazing hotel on my aniversary for the second week of January. The hotel was perfect, just what the pictures and description say. The employees were VERY helpful, they picked us up at the dock, pointed out all the places to go on the way to the room, and answered any questions we had while we were there. This place is perfect for a couple and family to get away and relax with breathtaking views. My wife and I would recommend it in a heartbeat, and it will be our first choice should we ever return to the island. Recommended for: Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway and yachting.
"More than I expected!"
After reading other reviews I was worried. Our villa was booked through home away. It had a full kitchenette, comfy bed, pool front balcony with amazing views. Being an experienced traveler I get the expectations from a "resort". we learned this place in under new management. They have sold units to private buyers and still have some as part of the hotel. Private villas have more amenities than the hotel. We stayed here during off season so it was like we had this place to ourselves! The employees were very nice and helpful. However the restaurant never opened during the week we were there. The cafeteria was open and the food was great and very reasonable compared to other places on the island. Overall this place has great potential!!!! Needs some work but the grounds, pool and feel of the island make it worth it! The dogs are not savages, yes there are cats but they don't bother you. The roosters, hens and peacocks are awesome! If you don't rent a car taxi ride to town or beaches is $5 each way. Dec to new year is very busy, summer is also a very busy time just FYI! Will definitely return ☀️
"More than expected.."
01/14/14 vegalegarreta Bayamon, Puerto Rico
After reading so many bad reviews. The only thing I expected to happen was a weekend of terror. But my experience was pretty good. We had booked two rooms. One was delivered on time, clean, everything in order, and complete. The second room was delivered with 3 hours of being late, the air conditioning was not working. The problem was solved in less than 30 minutes. We were given more time to check out. The surroundings clean and tidy place. The restaurant is not attractive, we avoid completely. PRO: spacious rooms with fridge microwave and sink. rooms with balcony with sea view Area pools and gazebos. clean and spacious WITH: no service TV / Cable Restaurant opens late, expensive and not attractive luece need to improve customer service at the front desk.

If I pay for a hotel/resort i expect to receive great service,clean rooms with basic stuff like a iron. When i arrive the restaurant was close because it open at 6pm the only thing that was open was a coffee shop (cafeteria) with greasie food. The people that work there doesnt know what service means. The only thing good is the view. Very disapointed!

We stayed there for 3 nights. The room views are simply spectacular!! The Caribbean Sea is right off your balcony! I stayed in a Junior Suite and the room was extremely comfortable and spacious, it included AC and Satellite TV. It had a separate bedroom with a queen bed set, and the family room had a futon sofa, a dining table, and a kitchenette with a small fridge, a convection microwave and mini stove, all very handy for preparing meals. The bathroom is huge! It has two sinks and closet space. The room also had a balcony with and outdoor lounge area, including a love seat, and dining table, great for having a romantic candlelit dinner. The hotel restaurant was very nice, has a great lobster dinner! The pool area is great! It has a big infinity pool, a jacuzzi and a swim up bar. There’s also a lounge area next to the check in counter. Is overlooks Ensenada Bay, and has a bar and live entertainment on the weekends. This place is beautiful and peaceful. We had a great mini vacay!

Stay away from this place! Crumbling concrete; Mould everywhere; Dirty; Broken appliances; Corroded plumbing; Hairs of previous occupants in bathroom; Wet, sticky floors; Soiled, stained sofa's; White powder on table(?); Chipped, damaged furniture - need I go on? The sympathetic staff knows their company is going over the cliff and are powerless. Pity; the view is to die for. With competent management and some capital it could perhaps be elevated from Soviet-era drabness but as it is, it is totally unacceptable. Oh yes, they charged us $294 per night. Of course we declined the honor and left - still fighting the aftermath and fall-out.......

we did not stay at this hotel however we did go to eat at their restaurant. once we arrived at the restaurant the server greeted us by saying "you can seat if you want but i am all alone". we sat down since we were told it was so nice and good. After waiting an hour and 40 minutes for our food, each plate came out separately and the system was not working when we wanted to pay. Not good!!
"Fool me once......."

If you like "rustic" accommodations, "camaraderie" with your neighbors, the thrill of driving obstacle courses littered with cars, boulders and potholes, and a basic "dog eat dog (chicken)" experience, then this is the place for you. Oh, and don't forget about the very welcoming Carlos! He doesn't get to the front desk much but you can find him chugging beers at the ferry landing with the young women who disembark. This place was truly an experience, and one I would recommend that NO ONE repeat! The ferry was delayed several hours and we arrived late on a Wednesday. Carlos did show up at the desk that night (we were prepaid, so he had to!) but the only room available had no working TV. We were tired so took it. He didn't mention that it had not been cleaned! There were "clean" sheets, but no blankets! Note: Blankets apparently are provided at the discretion of unit owners, and can be purchased for $29.99 in the (dirty) gift shop. But, think ahead, the shop is open only occasionally. An injured cat slept on the balcony furniture. We realized the next day why he slept there...Hundreds of roaming chickens, roosters with evil spurs, peacocks and hens, and dogs everywhere. We requested a clean room, and were assigned one LATE in the evening the next day. Carlos did tell us we would get a $100 credit, but never made good on that promise.We were offered NO help in moving our belongings up the steep hill to the netherworld up there. This is where the original resort concept of this complex fell apart. These hillside units are obviously occupied by permanent residents, whose belongings litter the lawns, who provide ambient background noise, and whose dogs provide carnivore "entertainment." This room still had no working lamps, and sheets too small for the beds. The TV worked, but, I guess someone forgot that maybe some of us don't speak Spanish because the Direct TV offerings did not include English shows. I have included pictures of the attractive landscaping, including too many cars (no designated parking), numerous uncovered trash cans that attracted cats (see photo), Structural components of the buildings sticking out of the ground, and of course, the results of the HUNT. Early one morning watched 2 very large dogs roaming the grounds, chasing something around the cars. After hearing loud squawking, I found the dogs behind a neighboring building, ripping the chicken apart. This was our second visit to Culebra, a very favorite spot for us. Next time, I think even camping would be preferable to the Sea Breeze Hotel.
"Pretty but lacking luster"
12/20/13 kaseyferie Guadalajara, Mexico
I stayed here for 3 days. Rooms are comfy and the grounds and pool are very pretty and well kept... but... The rooms are not cleaned before your arrival so the have bugs and dirt on the floor. The floor was full of sand and little bugs. They do have a little kitchenette thats very handy. The restaurant is sooo expensive for what it is! Pool bar is ok I guess. Parking is a little bit of a pain. Oh and bring loots of bug repellent!
