After many stops for a drink at VLB and saying to each other "we have got to stay here next time we are on Isla"... we did! We booked 2 nights in Bungalow 1 and it was perfect. Going to Isla in July is HOT and MUGGY so we were pleased to have the a/c in the bungalow. Bungalow one... More

This was my third visit to VLB in six years, if that's any indication of how much I love it. The place itself is absolutely gorgeous. Every corner is decorated with immaculate attention to detail, creating a fun yet relaxing, and beautiful atmosphere. It's obvious how much time and love owners Ashley & Curtis have put into the place. We... More

Just returned today from 4 nights at Villa La Bella. Another friend from here in Houston had stayed there before and highly recommended it. I loved that there were only 8 rooms so it was small and and felt very cozy. Ashley and Curtis (owners) treated us as guests in their home. Curtis provided a lovely breakfast each morning (except...

Villa La Bella is a great place to relax in an intimate setting with personal care. Curtis whips up the best breakfast on the island, and Ashley will help with any arrangements to make your visit memorable. You can't beat the hospitality and beautiful setting.

We arrived tired, stressed and ready to relax and this B & B met all our needs. We were in Palapa # 1 with a view of the ocean, shoreline and pool. Refreshing breezes blew from mid afternoon and through the night. Early morning was a bit warm and more still. The breakfast was delicious and filling. Consisted of a... More

My husband and I spent five days at Villa la Bella in May and had a wonderful time. Must admit I was a bit worried about staying in the open air palapa suites as my husband is a fan of his air conditioning. Well no worries, we had the most beautiful ocean breeze and amazing view we hated to leave... More

We spent three nights at Villa la Bella in one of the Palapa suites. The whole experience was excellent and incredibly relaxing. This was in addition to the excellent individuals we me during out stay, something that is made easy given the welcoming and friendly atmosphere at VLB (not to mention the excellent bar). The room itself is truly unique.... More

Fantastic views of the beautiful Caribbean can be seen from the patio of the hotel. The decor is warm and welcome. Just wait... More
