We actually loved Club Seabourne. It's definitely not a luxury resort, but we were one of three rooms staying there, so it wasn't crowded at all. The bar and restaurant were closed when we were there, except for Monday night - which I was told was an exception. They had some big group dinner planned that night.
We stayed in a villa and it was actually very nice, clean, and spacious. The balcony was cute and we had a view of the bay. The staff was very nice and helpful, but the last night we were there, there was no one at the front desk. Not a problem for us, but I can see how this would annoy people.
We paid $175/night, and I would definitely recommend it. Wouldn't pay much more than that, though...
We went to Carlos Rosario from Flamenco - did the hike up and down the hill. While I think Carlos Rosario is beautiful, Tamarindo Beach which is to the left as you approach Carlos Rosario, is equally breathtaking - and there was no one there! The only thing I didn't like about Carlos Rosario is in a span of two hours, there were two boats with about 20-30 people on them anchored right off shore - which I thought spoiled our view. One in particular had really loud, annoying music, but I have to commend them for cleaning up after themselves: two paper plates went flying out the boat and into the water, and someone jumped in and retrieved them...
Sounds like you had a good time in Culebra, too. Have a good weekend!
