Management non existent.
Rooms dirty with left over rice on bedside table.
Electric plug on top of your head while showering. Bathroom smells of mold.
Stay away if you can afford it!!!!!
The island is worth the visit but can perfectly be done as a day trip.

If the karaoke bar downstairs doesn't stop you from getting a good night's sleep, you'll find that your room has a squeky spring mattress that makes your back hurt while you keep switching the horribly loud AC unit on and off, trying to find an equilibrium between noise and tropical sweatiness. Some might also be concerned about the lack of windows or toilet door. Wireless internet barely worked at the room. Not recommended unless you are a deaf old hippie.

Ok like most of the reviews I agree it isn't five star but your not paying 5 star prices. I had a great room double bed with attached bathroom. It's the people right from the cleaner up to David the owner. Made my stay very easy and enjoyable a special thanks to Jessica with her company and tips on the island. I found the locals very warm and friendly and even had dinner last night with two residents at there house after a great day at two beaches. Overall I would highly recommend a stay here and I would definitely come back

I rented room with a shared bath that was shared only with me! The room was clean enough, claustrophobic- well yes, bed comfy..well.. no...but here is what you have to realize... Puerto Rico in general does not have deals like you would find in DR or central america... and being an island of Culebra everything is more expensive. So... with that said.. if you are on budget- this is your choice and it isn't bad. Go downstairs for a drink during the ballgame and enjoy the island.

First of all, I should say that I only have experience of the two bedroom suite on the third floor. The one bedroom warrens on the second floor are just too claustrophobic for me. The suite, however, was quite spacious, had many windows, a nice deck, and the aforementioned two bedrooms, one of which was large enough to accommodate three beds (2 twins, 1 queen). I've heard a lot about how dirty the rooms are, and how this suite in particular (suite 12) had corroding sink fixtures, lights that obstructed the medicine cabinet door, and poor water pressure. The place was also reputed to be too noisy for sleep, because of its location atop a bar. My findings? Because of the sounds of the fans and the air conditioner, outside noises are totally muffled, except for the ferry horn and really loud noise, like loading garbage trucks. Fortunately, these things are relatively infrequent, and occur almost totally during the early morning/early evening, so sleep was never a problem. Sleep was, however, somewhat compromised in the smaller bedroom because of a lack of an air conditioner. Folks: Puerto Rico is in the tropics. That means it's damned hot. All the time. I would advise any Gringo against renting any room that does not have air conditioning at least in the bedrooms. That said, our party consisted of two couples, one in their 60s, the other in their 30s. The younger couple gallantly accepted the small, un-air-conditioned room. And slept just fine with the aid of two powerful fans the whole time we were here (4 days). The bathroom was hardly the chamber of horrors others have described. The water pressure was fine for showers; there was plenty of hot water; the light fixture by the medicine cabinet could easily be pushed up, out of the way;and the toilet functioned just fine. The latching mechanism on the door was broken, but the door nevertheless shut tight because of the fact it rubbed against the door frame. No problema.

Do, however, be careful about the "chairs" on the deck. They are made of thin plastic, and the intense UV light of the tropics has made them so brittle that they shatter at the mere mention of stress. Also, the stairwell is demanding for anyone unsteady on their feet; the steps are too narrow and too high, making use of the handrail essential. Especially at night and after a few too many mojitos.

Good points? The central location is really convenient; almost all of the restaurants, gift shops, scuba/snorkeling shops, gas stations, tiendas (use the one across the drawbridge to the right) and, of course, the ferry, are within 5 minutes of the hotel. The view from the deck at times is stupendous (dawn is always a treat, and the approach of a squall is downright exciting). Everything is tiled, so cleaning up after yourself is easy, and being dripping wet when you enter is fine. I'm a windows freak, so I like all the glass. The bar tender and default hotel manager is a very nice guy, with lots of local info, despite his alleged sartorial and/or hygienic deficiencies. And for $100 a night, you would be hard pressed to find better accommodations for four adults. The kitchen includes a stove and fridge, sink, silverware/plates/pots/pans/coffeemaker/microwave, so you can make your own meals whenever you want.

Culebra is for people who focus on the natural world, not amenities and the refinements of culture. These suites (there are two on the third floor) are just fine after a day of snorkeling with the turtles and tropical fish, swimming at one of the top ten beaches in the world (Playa Flamenco), exploring island on a golf cart (forget renting a car), etc.

All that said, when I return, I will try to find a place in the interior because I value tranquility above convenience.

Room Tip: Get one of the suites.
