SeaGate Hotel Jan 04, 2014
SeaGate Hotel is one of the oldest establishment in Vieques, located in Isabell Secunda, on the top of the hill just a bit behind the islands Spanish fort. It is run by the same family for past 30 years and now days you’ll find Penny and her niece Kelly taking care of the business. They are a bit away from the center of the town but close enough for easy walk (especially downhill) which is good thing as far as I am concerned. On the small island I prefer to go to a bit more secluded areas even if they are away from the beach. If you are into great beaches, then you’ll have to go to the other side of the island and get to National Park and areas around Esperanza. Transportation around the island is sporadic and most of the people relay on the rent-a-car or taxi services. Vieques is not an small island, so going with the bicycle is going to take some time, but it is the pleasurable ride.
This location worked for me because it is fairly close to ferry, ease to catch the ride to anywhere on the island, town is right there with stores where I can buy food or necessities and it is “the top of the hill” heheh. When you get to the entrance of the small fort you’ll see the green sign for the SeaGate going uphill. All the buildings are painted in kind of pastel green with contrast of the darker greenery that surrounds everything on the compound. They have variety of accommodation and rooms scattered in three different buildings. I stayed in the awesome apartment #10 that is on the second floor of the two floor building with its own nice terrace overlooking the horses and the valley that leads to the sea.
Horses riding is available from this place and they are the most favorable for their treatment of animals. Penny is one of the initiators of the Animal shelter on the island and in hotel you’ll meet few dogs that are moved from the street and enjoying their dogs life. Their horse stables also started from saving some mistreated horses and now there are around fifteen good looking horses in the coral. For all other activities Penny can hook you up with reliable locals from the island.
My apartment had nice front with kitchen and all necessary things for cooking and preserving food. Bed was more than perfect with nice smelling linen and pillows. This apartment has AC and fans, but I use only fan and natural air from open windows. There is lots of mosquitoes around, but all doors and windows have nets so they are no problem inside, but otherwise there are no glass windows. There is also a small pool but I did not use it because… beach is way nicer…
Breakfast is included in the price of stay but it is less than satisfactory and you should not really count on it, and you will also find coffee most of the time you look for it (important for me). There are many details on the walls, pictures, trinkets, all stuff that someone personally collected and made this place look really homey. There are books in every apartment as a mini libraries and you can also search through more books in the office area. Office are is very small for the amount of people that comes for breakfast, but it is fun to be close and personal with other guests. It is way overpriced for what is offered.
