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

For the price the stay was very good. We had refrigerators for each room, beach towels, cooler, and snorkeling gear and chairs as loan. A kitchen and all needed foe cooking and eat was available for all the five rooms. The rooms were clean and cozy. We also have TV and DVDs, and a PC available for us. But no... More

On my second trip to Culebra we chose Palmetto House, practically two blocks from small airport. Susan, the owner, picked us up in her popular red truck. Room was small but normal and AC worked fine. Bathroom, towels, linens clean and plentiful. The muffins are still warm and all rooms have the fridge. We walked to town (20 good minutes),... More

This was my first time staying at this beautiful and cozy guesthouse. You feel just like home. It has a living room with awesome movies and a desktop computer with highspeed internet. The complementary authentic puertorican coffee is AMAZING. Loved the fresh baked muffins that Susan brings down every morning! The rooms are clean and smell fresh. Paul and Susan... More

My wife and I stayed five nights in March-April. Our room was tight for two, though the bed was roomy. It's close to the airport but about a mile from the center of Dewey, where the restaurants are. Not an issue, since you'll want to rent a golf cart or Jeep in order to get to beaches other than Flamenco.... More

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...

I'm late in writing this review, but the whole idea of Culebra is that things don't change very fast on the little island (thankfully!), so this is still relevant. My friend and I traveled to Culebra not really knowing what to expect since it's so tiny. Palmetto couldn't be easier to get to from the tiny air field, and it's... More

My husband and I spent few days at Palmetto in December. The guest house is only a 5 minutes walk from the airport, 2/3 minutes walk to many car/golf cart rental agency and 10/15 minutes drive (in a golf cart) to both Flamenco beach and the "city centre". The room we stayed in was super clean and so was the... More
