I've stayed at Posada, Palmetto, and Tropical, and enjoyed all three. I would advise the following: if you are young and new to Culebra, Molly and Jerry at Tropicale are party type folks who will go out of their way to help you experience the island, including driving, hiking with and dining/cocktailing with guests. The vibe there is beach/Bohemian.
I believe Terrie and Mark at Palmetto are interactive with their guests, too, with an emphasis on active lifestyle activities. Palmetto is the poshest of the three, as well.
Posada is at the epicenter of town life, next door to Mamacitas and a wedge-shot to Dinghy Dock. Clean, functional; small rooms, no frills except included coolers and beach towels. Only the "apartment" has a kitchen, though some rooms have microwave and half-fridges. They had a gass grill on the deck.
Hope this helps.
