My family and I finally got to visit Culebra. The island in general did not disappoint us. Playa Flamenco is just gorgeous. A search of hotels by rating and price yielded this guesthouse. We thought that for a $120 per night rate (plus taxes) the room would be at least average. We were wrong. The three-star rating and pictures seen on this website were deceiving. We were told that this was a suite-like room, good for four people and a fifth guest, for whom they would provide an extra couch or mattress. However, the room was extremely small. There was barely room for the suitcases and to walk. Only the main area had an A/C, and the bed for the extra person was a beat-up mattress that barely fit in the room. The bathroom was dirty, and we had to chase and kill a coach roach before we can actually go to sleep. Next morning at checkout we told the employee. She didn't even apologize.
I gave a rating of 2 to this guesthouse only because the shuttle that takes you to the beach (for a fee, of course) stops right in front of the guesthouse.
I will go back to Culebra, but definitely not to this guesthouse. Now I know that there are better options than this place. Before you go to Culebra, make sure to carefully research and read reviews from different sources.
