I’ve stayed in the suites at Harbor View twice now and enjoyed it both times. Given the general open-air nature of the living spaces, it helps to consider them as cabin camping (remember that geckos are harmless). The views are great. The guests I’ve encountered are friendly and easy-going. Penelope and BC (friendly, curious dogs – the Doberman thinks she’s a Lab) will drop in on occasion and stay until you stop petting them. Harbor Suite has the best kitchen, Sunset, the best deck. The villas look nice and if I go back to Culebra (if? who am I kidding?) I might spring the extra for one.
Elsewhere in this forum I’ve read some negative comments, but my experiences have been good. The only real drawback at the moment is the construction - if the ferry has just come in, getting through the intersection at the bottom of the hill can be a headache. Right now, when it’s busy, driving is a lot like one of those picture puzzles where you move one tile over to move another down. But given the view, you can just check before heading down the hill. And actually they're doing a pretty good job coordinating street closures and directing trafffic during the day.
It’s really not a bad walk (a little steep) from town and the Publicos, but you’d prob. want a jeep anyway to get to beaches like Zoni.
The Colmado near the gas station had the better looking meat, but the larger one in town has better overall selection.
