I almost don't want to review Villa Fulladosa because I wish it could be kept a secret! Super clean and lovely environment. We were so taken by the place that we didn't go out the first night, but chose instead to make dinner in our kitchen and eat it on the patio near the dock. The kitchenettes are fully stocked with basic things like silverware and cooking implements, which is nice if you want to be able to eat breakfast on your patio or have a night in. The apartment itself was much larger than we were expecting, with a bedroom space, kitchen and an additional sitting area that we didn't even use. We both found the bed to be comfortable, and though I am fairly heat-intolerant I could hardly see a need for A/C with the cool island breezes at night. Finally, the bathroom was very clean and there was plenty of hot water and no problems on that front.
It is also ideally located just off the main drag of town. We were able to walk there from the Ferry and make quick trips to restaurants or the grocery stores with no problems. We even walked back from Flamenco Beach one afternoon.
As a sidenote, we are gay and felt perfectly welcome by both the manager and the other guests.
The only drawback to the place was that because it was the weekend, the people in the building next door (owners? vacation renters?) were partying till 2am Friday and Saturday nights. It was particularly terrible because for some odd reason they just kept listening to the most recent Adele album on repeat, making us feel as though we were in some weird, tropical version of hell. When I contacted the manager to see if there was anything that could be done, she did not respond. I imagine that this could be avoided by saying you want a quiet room when you make the reservation (we were in apt 5, which is right next door to the neighbors).
That aside, we look forward to staying at Villa Fulladosa the next time we visit Culebra.
