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

Susan was so informative and helpful!!! She really made our stay outstanding.. Her guesthouse is only a block from the airport and right next to Carlos Jeep Rental... The rooms and beds are comfortable with a great garden area for morning coffee or evening wind down...

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
