It was like an adult hostel with private rooms, with extra touches. Extra touches were the fresh baked goods, coffee, book exchange, clean sitting room, beach towels,two outside back seating area, front rinse off area. Three rooms were off the front kitchen and it was super loud. Every syllable was echoed into our room. The room was clean but the... More

The great hospitality of Susan, the guesthouse owner, has been mentioned in several reviews already and this is one more to add to the list. Susan is a very helpful, warm personality and extremely accommodating and that really trumps any other flaws that there might be. On our first day, she gave us tips of where to eat and where...

We only stayed here for two nights this past month, but wish we could have stayed longer. Susan was wonderful and really made us feel at home. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but we had the king size bed (which was very comfortable), so I guess we opted for bed over room. Location is really convenient... More

Susan is a wonderful host. She goes out of her way to make sure your trip goes smoothly. She drove us to Flamingo the day we got in to make sure we got there before the sunset. Also, offered to pick us up if we ever got caught in the rain or couldn't get a taxi. Susan lives in the... More

Culebra is not one of those Caribbean island that provide some fancy or luxurious stuff. You go there for the beauty. Went there many times but first time we stayed at this guest house because everything was sold out. We know it is not beach front or near town, it is just ten minutes walk to the airport. And we...

I loved this place! Shane was so nice to us. The room was tidy and the house was more lovely. One thing I did loved is that it does have its own kitchen (also utensils) so you can prepare your own breakfast. The market is very close by foot like 5 mins. Also car rentals and golf carts are a... More

I stayed at Palmetto Guesthouse for 4 nights. The room was small but the bed was big and the air conditioning worked great and there is free wifi. I didn't have a view (my window opened to a storage area) but I could go to the common space which included a nice kitchen with coffee and pastries in the morning... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in Palmetto Guesthouse in March 2015. The location is good, it's a 5 minute walk from the airport, around the corner of the main office of Carlos jeep and golfcart rental. To get from the Palmetto to the center of town, you can either walk (+/-15 minutes), take a taxi (3 USD/per... More
