My fiancé and I spent 3 nights in a "Small Efficiency" room at Casita Tropical and I didn't want to leave! It was such a wonderful place to return to after a long day at the beach. I especially loved the hammock and small kitchen in the patio area. At first, it may seem to be located far away from everything, but really, as long as you rent a car or golf cart (highly recommended), it's more than fine. I actually enjoyed staying further away from the downtown area as it gave me more of an island getaway feel.
Molly, the owner of the guest house, is one of the most darling, kind and helpful persons I've ever met. She doesn't know, but I've secretly adopted her as my Puerto Rico Aunt ;P Her dog Sophie is a really entertaining and clever dog full of character too (I love dogs). Going back to Molly - she's always ready to help as much as she can. She even took my fiancé & I, along with some other guests, out one morning to go snorkeling with turtles!! Usually you have to pay $35 (I think) for these kind of tours!
Overall, I just really loved how Casita Tropical and Molly provided us with everything we needed - a wonderful accommodation, small kitchen, small fridge, TV, shampoo & body wash, towels, beach towels, a nice bed sheet to bring and spread onto the beach, lots of different types of beach toys (boogie boards, noodles, snorkel stuff, etc), and whatever else you need, you just have to ask Molly and she'd try her best to help and provide. As someone who's stayed in many hostels and guest houses, this has definitely been one of the best experiences and if I ever go back to Culebra, I'll definitely be going back to Molly :)
