I stayed at the cottage for 3 nights, and I was not impressed. The good: The cottage is spacious and features a nice view of the Ensenada Honda. Management is responsive. It is close to hiking trails off the beaten path, particularly Resaca Beach. However, it is not the cleanest property in Culebra, it is very much out of the...

Thank you for taking the time to review us from your stay of over a month and a half ago. As I had mentioned to you we were starting renovations on that unit and we did. The renovation was completed end of last month. In addition to the complete renovation of the cottage the banana trees that were the cause...

I stayed in the Cottage for two nights in January 2017 with my husband. The Cottage is exactly what is advertised and more! No, is not a luxury rental and it never claims to be. The other units in the Hilltop are more spacious and are a bit more luxurious (didn't get to see them first hand, but the pics...

We stayed in the Hilltop Cottage for four days. We made it work, but it was a compromise. The good: comfortable bed, adequate kitchen, functional bathroom, nice grounds, beautiful view, good parking, quiet location, and nice small swimming pool. The not so good: no insulation in the ceiling so it gets very hot when the sun is out; the air...

Bill, thank you for taking the time to review the hilltop cottage. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the peaceful and lush grounds of hilltop. We take great pride in maintaining our property with the limited resources the rustic island of Culebra has to offer. As advertised, the hilltop cottage at 300 square feet is a functional and...

My husband and I stayed here September 12th - September 17th for our honeymoon, It was AMAZING, we loved it. It is very secluded, you can't hear anything, it stays cool (which is rare to have air conditioning in PR) the bed was surprisingly very comfortable, and the view was unbelievable. The pool was the perfect temperature, extremely clean and...

My husband and I visited Culebras for first time and loved the relaxing time we had but were a bit disappointed with the Casita at Hilltop. As cute as it was, we loved the secluded location, but it shows there's no true upkeep nor investment to upkeep. I get the minimal (no tv, lol) vacation but theres no excuse for...

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are glad you enjoyed the seclusion and the splendid views hilltop has to offer. We will address all your cleanliness concerns right away. I wish you had said something to the caretaker when she tried to check in with you multiple times during your stay. Thank you once again for...

Can’t get over the gorgeous views, with low green hills encircling the blue of the bay. Never got tired of seeing that in the morning outside the cottage front door. And it’s backcountry quiet. Some superb star-gazing at night. The cottage is a small, but did us fine as a couple. Functional stove, fridge, and kitchen = it’s a beach...

My husband and I stayed at the casita at Hilltop for a week in mid July. For us, it was absolutely wonderful. It has a treetop deck on one side and a little porch with a view of the pool at the front. It has air conditioning, but we never used it. There are ceiling fans and tons of windows...

This is the worse place I have ever stayed at! We went over the Christmas holidays, with 4 couples, and 2 small children. This place was so bad I don't even know where to start with my comments.

Reviewed 1 March 2016

The cottage is dismal. Needs some work put into it and better supplies. Didn't even want to drink out of the old plastic cups. Even my coffee cup leaked. Old towels in a run down bathroom. Old, rusty, noisy air-conditioner in bedroom. The pool is to dip your feet in, not swim. Not an enjoyable experience. Rent near the beach!

Beware that the pictures of Hilltop House and grounds are not what they appear to be. The place is run down and shabby. The pool is super small and the tiles are falling off. The cottage is the worst of the 3 accommodations with worn furniture and junk for kitchenware. The photos of the place are skillfully done and deceiving....
