Stayed at Palmetto Guesthouse from April 8th-10th 2014. Susan was a wonderful host and very helpful in explaining all the ins/outs of Culebra and helping in anyway possible. The house itself is conveniently located within walking distance of the airport (she provides fre pickup and drop off for both the airport and ferry). As others have said the house itself... More

I can't thank Susan and Paul enough for literally saving our vacation. Our accommodations on main island of Puerto Rico did not pan out. I called Susan and she helped us find a single night accommodation on the mainland until we could advance our air transportation to Culebra. She was able to take us in two days early. That was...

We stayed at Palmetto back in January (okay, I'm a little late to the party) but for the price and location, it's a perfect place to stay. Our room was spotless and close to the airport and vehicle rental places. We discovered a grocery store and breakfast place (la pista) that was better than anything else downtown. Paul and Susan...

Paul and Susan, the owners, have a fantastic place. We stayed four nights and loved it. They bring down coffee and hot fresh baked scones each morning. The rooms are small, but the communal kitchens (kept spotless) and sitting areas more than make up for it. They also have a computer with hi-speed internet for guests' use and free ferry... More

I read thru the recent reviews and not sure I have much to add but concur. Susan and Paul are accompanying, welcome, and fun. I too stayed in Frangipani and also found it pretty tight. They do have. Admitting room, and two small kitchens so it's not hard to cook your own food. They are wonderful hosts. Also enjoyed a... More

We loved our stay at Palmetto and we would not hesitate to come back. Susan, the hostess picked us up, and dropped us off at the ferry. The room was very clean and comfortable (with good AC). We were able to cook our own meals in the kitchen shared by all guests. We had access to free snorkeling equipment, and... More

Spotless with Character. The building is keep up well. Nice shower and AC too. The kitchen is very clean and everyone can use it. Paul and his wife treat you like a guest. They will also give you a ride to the airport.

I was in Palmetto with my husband on holidays. The guesthouse is very nice and cosy. Susan and Paul are great owners and managers who were very helpful during our 2 days stay. We also sailed with Paul in his yacht and had a terrific sailing day on board and in Playa Tortugas in Culebrita Island. The only really bad... More

A friend and I stayed at the Palmetto Guesthouse in August and we loved all of it. A short walk to the airport, jeep rentals, and downtown. It felt very cozy and Susan left out amazing scones every morning. We booked a boat trip with Paul and spent all day sailing and swimming and laughing. It sounds like a Mountain... More

Good in this hotel: - Cosy, easy-going atmosphere - Very clean room (BUT this is a guesthouse and there is no cleaning during the stay! However the room was extremely clean when we got it) - Susan (we did not really meet Paul) - she's the best! And very, very helpful - Clean kitchens, fridges for your own food and... More
