“A home away from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

We wanted to experience the bioluminescent bay excursion so we have to stay overnight in Vieques. We are fortunate that we found SeaGate hotel. Penny, one of the owners, was really awesome and made us feel welcome and comfortable. She gave us pointers about the island and so we were able to max out our short stay in Vieques. The hotel is on a hill overlooking the sea. It is close to the town center of Isabel and about 10 minutes drive away from Caracas beach and the meeting point for the Bioluminescent Mosquito bay trip. Light breakfast is included and is ready by 6am at the office. Lots of mosquitoes so don't leave any windows or the door open. The hotel maybe old but it is clean and comfy. There is a small kitchenette complete with utensils so good place to stay if you plan to enjoy the island for a longer period. We flew here via Air Flamenco from Ceiba, PR and rented a jeep at Avis. Ricky of Avis gave us good pointers too about the island and some good snorkeling sites.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the office has better view of the ocean.

This gem is an amazing find. My wife and I were on our last leg of our honeymoon and we found the seagatehotel. Penny and Kelly are amazing and helped figure out what to do throughout the island. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Viegues. You feel like you are at home. Truly an charming place to end our trip. From the sweet Fuzzy greeting you at the gate to the breathtaking views this place is no thing short of magical.
Also, rent a Jeep from Ricky at Avis.

Room Tip: There is no pool or fitness center They automatically clicked and I couldn't undo it. Room 3...

This was our first trip to Vieques. We wanted to do a bio-bay tour and given the sparse ferry service to/from the island, you're pretty much required to stay on the island overnight. We picked the SeaGate because of the online reviews. The hotel is located in Isabella (one of the two main towns on Vieques - Esperanza being the other) about 1 mile from the ferry docks. I wouldn't walk it though. A shuttle service is provided but we didn't take advantage of it on arrival. The hotel was a little difficult to find at first because it's nestled into a residential area and the hotel is very nondescript. We drove by it the first time without even noticing it. The staff was very friendly and check-in was a breeze. The room was a little dated but clean. The bathroom looked like it received an update recently. The size of the room was just right for the three of us. The roosters in the morning were a little annoying. Other than that, we had a comfortable stay, and for what we needed, it was just what we were looking for - a nice, comfortable, convenient place to stay.

Penny is AMAZING. She makes you feel right at home, gave us a tour of the place and showed us to our room. Clean and tidy, nothing too fancy but very homey but awesome view. She asked what we wanted to do and set up the bio tour for us. She even gave us a ride into town to get dinner. She gave us tips on where to eat and even came to pick us back up after the bio tour guide arrived a bit early. This hotel is located in the town Isabel, which is where the ferry is. The hotel is literally a 7-10 min walk from ferry but hotel has a service to pick you up. (We didn't use it but she mentioned this to us). Since it's on a hill, has an awesome view of the island. Younger crowd should stay in the town Esperanza

Such a wonderful stay. The staff was extremely friendly, including Fuzzy and the gang. The room was clean and the view incredible. You can walk to the center of town within minutes, the only thing we regret is that we didn't stay longer.

My girlfriend and I have stayed here twice and we loved it! The service was great, the rooms were clean, and the atmosphere was beautiful! Make sure to ask for Penny (the owner) because she is the sweetest woman and was very helpful!

Definitely the best place to stay in Vieques!
I highly recommend this hotel because of the friendly owner, friendly dogs (They are waiting for us in the front gate when we came back to hotel late. Fuzzy!), great environment, free breakfast, free pick up/drop off, good price, and great room with AC! We just went back from Vieques on 7/2/2013, and this hotel is one of the highlights in Vieques! (another one is biobay tour).
Thank you Kelly! Great experience to stay in this hotel!
