I stayed here on a recommendation from someone I trust, for a last minute, first diving trip to Cozumel. The check in and check out was fast and seamless, the staff were efficient and the price was definitely right. From it's location, adjacent to Papa Hog's to the rinse tubs a drying racks, it is the right choice for anyone... More

$80 a night plus 19% tax. We got a superior room. The A/C remote was broken it took a couple of hours to get a replacement. Even after the replacement the A/C would only work on 16c or off. We were supposed to get free breakfast; but didn't know about that until after we left. Wireless is extremely slow almost... More

WE love this motel as it is close to Papa Hogs for diving. On our last stay we were a little let down. Had to get the room key re set about 4 times as it wouldn't work and the hot water was off and on. Pool was nice and warm but cloudy and full of bugs, they appeared to... More

I liked this hotel better than my husband did. We usually stay at the Blue Angel across the street, and walked past this hotel many times wondering what it was like. The Blue Angel was full so they arranged a room for us here. We had a suite for the price of a room, it was all white marble with... More

If you are looking for a 5 star all inclusive hotel, this is not it. This place is a small, quaint, relaxing, garden hotel across the street from the ocean. They have a small, friendly,hard working staff with Aurturo at the helm. Aurturo is on top of it! You can normally find him in the dining area talking with locals... More

Good hotel for the price. Not fancy but quite adequate, stayed for 8 nights and never a problem. Great for divers, 4 shops all close. Boats pick up at dock across the street. Good snorkeling right from the beach. Restaurants close by and friendly people. Easy to get a taxi to town 5 minutes away. Basic breakfast included in the... More

I've stayed at the Villa Blanca several times. Very clean, and it's comfortable. It's not the fanciest hotel on the planet. Instead, it's relatively small and has some local charm. The grounds and pool are well maintained. The beds are comfortable. All the rooms have a TV, phone, and fridge. WiFi access in the rooms is spotty. Superior rooms are... More

Hotel is a bit outside of town (ferry or cruise ship dock areas) but its only a 5 minute cab ride to either area. You are between both "towns" so its only a 5 minute cab ride to either area. Scuba shop is attached to the hotel so if you plan to dive you are in a great location. The... More

Stayed here for a week in early May 2014 while scuba diving (Papa Hogs Scuba Emporium is next door). This hotel was both convenient to Papa Hogs and was a very good value. The "Superior" rooms are spacious and clean with a refridgerator and TV. Hotel hot tub and pool were also very nice and well maintained. The walk to... More

Recently stayed at the Villablanca Garden Beach Hotel for 10 days while diving Cozumel. Stayed in a Superior Room which was very spacious and clean with a comfortable bed and a beautiful view of the water. Hotel rates are very reasonable and they try to meet your every need. I hope the owner appreciates the value of the manager (Jorge)... More
