We had an excellent time at Palmetto's! Susan was a great hostess from the beginning. She makes delicious muffins every morning, my favorite where the coconut ones! Very clean and cosy. They lend you towels, cooler, snorkel and fins for scuba diving. BTW the best snorkel so far was at Melones Beach. She also sells ice and water for a... More

Recently we make a reservation through priceline and the other the day Susan, the owner, send us an email confirming our reservation. Since we arrived at the place, our feeling was like be at home. She is awesome, so kind and the place so peaceful. Culebra is beautiful! I can't wait to be there again.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse. Our king size bed was so, so comfortable, Susan makes delicious muffins and PR coffee every morning, it was very clean, Susan was very hospitable, convenient to walk downtown and to car rental locations and grocery stores. We'd definitely return to this guest house if we return to Culebra.

Owner Susan is an amazing host. I was immediately contacted after I made my reservation with detailed information about the guest house, the island and my arrival. Free pick-up and drop-off at the airport. A rarity. Highly recommended. Best customer service I've ever encountered.

We just left this morning, and already I miss Culebra! This is such a wonderful, peaceful place, and we enjoyed Palmetto Guest House, with our co-guests. Michelle picked us from the airport promptly, oriented us to the guest house and island. Our room was comfortable, and we had a refrigerator where we could store some amenities needed for our breakfast.... More

Loved our visit here. Michelle was on-site and made fresh coffee and pastries every morning. We made use of the microwave and kitchen, but meals are available upon request. Michelle was also an excellent source to help us navigate the island. Neat, clean and in a great location. Just far enough off the beaten path to truly enjoy your Culebra... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days while visiting Culebra over labor day weekend in September 2014. Very close to airport. Susan (the owner) met me at the airport with her red pick up truck and was very helpful. The hotel is only a short 5-10 minute walk from the airport (literally right across the street), so it is...

this is the very best of guesthouses - affordable and friendly the rooms are clean and cool - kinda 'no frills' as it were but the things that matter were all present and correct - bed, a/c, wireless (fast), en-suite with shower, sink and toilet with a nice shared kitchen should you want to cook something we didn't but we...

Palmetto Guesthouse is a guest house, that's what it is, so if you're looking for a 5 star luxury chain resort, know that it's not that kind of place. (Blessedly, Culebra is just not like that). You feel and stay as if you are visiting the comfortable, but not perfect (and it does not have to be by any means)... More
