CULEBRA is an incredibly beautiful Caribbean island located at the east side of Puerto Rico. It is a tropical place, that with crystal clear waters, fresh air, and warm sun make every visitor come back, or dream back each moment again! The population of Culebra is approximately 2000 residents. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service administer tens of small islands surrounding Culebra as a Natural Refuge. These islands constitute a breeding zone for birds, turtles, and other special tropical species. Surrounded by a chain of cays and reefs and topography of valleys and mountains, Culebra allows a panoramic view of flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. Its view of neighboring Caribbean islands is breathtaking. The best beach in Culebra is the sandy white FLAMINGO BEACH; ideal for a breathy suntan, diving, and snorkeling. This pristine beauty and marine garden has been enjoyed so far by a lucky few.

Incredible beach, disappointing accommodation

The beach is truly spectacular and the photographs did it justice, however we felt the unit left much to be desired. The photos and description were misleading.We expected comfortable, reasonably well appointed rooms and kitchen as well as balcony space.It was not the case. There were no amenities that one would reasonably associate with the "luxury" cost of the accommodation. One of our most serious issues pertains to the bed. The mattress in the main bedroom is a worn out mattress topped by two pieces of worn out, ill fitting foam that cuts the double bed in half. The foam is moldy and unhealthy. The couch in the living room is virtually un-useable. The springs are completely worn out and you sink uncomfortably low. The cookware is in need of replacement. I have traveled extensively in developing countries and have never had an experience similar to this. Each unit is independently owned and I believe others to be in better condition.
The staff were helpful and kind.
The septic system was failing. It seemed there were too many guests for the system to accommodate. Unfortunately the septic system was located outside our door. and it was smelly.
The owner of this unit was helpful in offering the ferry schedule and offered help with any questions we might have in email exchanges before our trip. We did not contact him until our return home regarding our surprise and disappointment and have had no reply regarding our concerns.

The place was very clean, and the staff was quite friendly. The kitchen had everything we needed. We would have enjoyed having a balcony to enjoy playing games outside while in the room. We had a great time. It was our 2nd time and we will go back and recommend it very highly.
Recommended for: Families with teenagers, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, people with disabilities, sightseeing, tourists without a car, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway.
Owner response: Thank you. Next time, we can look for an apartment with terrace, having beach view, for you. Just mention it. A'int Culebra just beautifully cute? My cellular is 787-717-2221. Myrta

While I don't normally write reviews of places that I have stayed, I feel like I need to do so in this case. The property description for this apartment is misleading and, as a result, I felt like the price we paid was too high. My main complaint (and believe me, I am not a big complainer) is that the only source of natural light and fresh air in the apartment is the front door. All windows and shutters are completely painted shut and cannot be opened, so the bedrooms had no natural light or ventilation. Given that the temperature and humidity at the end of March was just about perfect, it was quite annoying to not be able to open windows and enjoy the sea breezes. It appeared that this was the only apartment in the building that is this way. All of the others appeared to have working windows with screens. The apartment is somewhat run-down, although this is a beach location and one does not necessarily expect the height of luxury. The furnishings provided are adequate at best. Bedding and linens are quite low-quality and worn.
The pictures provided of the property are pretty accurate. The beach where the property is located is absolutely gorgeous, and this property is right on the beach as advertised. This particular apartment is at the back of the big building that you see in the picture, so any view of the ocean is just from the side.
I would definitely stay at in this area again, and would stay in this location, but not in this particular apartment.
Owner response: All windows in the apartment will be un-shut and screens installed during summer 2010. Each room has two (2) wood-louver windows. A balcony with benchs facing Flamingo Beach will be added to the apartment also.
Housekeeping services are provided by a common administration for all units owners.
