Positives: Great view of the bay and cruise ships. Room was large. Quiet. Negatives: Not convenient to transportation. Located on top of hill. Nothing within walking distance. Owner started out as friendly but extremely disorganized and not professional. Had lost our reservation, took forever to check in, no continental breakfast as advertised. Charged us double and it took 3 phone... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Blanca after finding it in the good value section of a Fodor's Travel Guide. What a mistake! The place was extremely run down which I could get over, but worse, it was just filthy dirty. The tile floors didn't look like they'd been mopped in a while, the cups and plates in our... More

The travel magazines, in their articles about St Thomas, always seem to overlook the quaint, beautiful hotels that are not well-known names. Villa Blanca is old-school Caribbean. The owner, Blanca, lives on site and gives you personal attention from the moment you arrive. She makes sure you have a bag of fresh, hot bagels hanging on your door each morning,... More

The owner was nice but the room was not worth it. It could have been cleaner and a few of the window winders did not work. The ac unit was small my husband daughters and myself had a small cottage. One tiny ac unit cannot cool down an entire cottage. The blinds were old and did not work. The maid... More

We spent one night here on our way to St. John and found the accommodations, the property, the VIEW, and the hostess (Blanca) above and way beyond our expectations: Especially after reading the preceeding review. We requested a honeymoon suite with a nice view and were assigned to room 6. It was one of the nicest rooms we have ever... More

I stayed here because my sister in laws wedding was on st Thomas and she had picked this place. In all honesty the price looked great and the pictures online looked amazing. Unfortunately the views from the hotel were about the only good thing about this place. On the first night, my sister in law found a cockroach in her... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Blanca last week when we were visiting St Thomas. We made a reservation for 3 nights but only ended up staying for 1 night. When I made our reservation I spoke directly to Blanca and she was very nice and friendly to me. She gave us a honeymoon package rate for our stay... More

I made a reservation at Villa Blanca which I had to cancel at the last minute due to a genuine family emergency. I was indisposed dealing with the crisis and my wife called Blanca. Even though we were well beyond the refund date, only days from our scheduled trip, Blanca generously refunded our full deposit.

We recently spent a week at Villa Blanca in one of the "tree houses." It was inexpensive compared to the big resort hotels on the island. It was clean but rustic and we were quite comfortable in it. Blanca made it clear to me on the phone that the Villa was not a "fancy" hotel. The pool was dirty the... More

After viewing this property's website and reading the reviews, I was hopeful that this small hotel would offer some nice personal touches to offset its lack of proximity to beaches or intown activities. I must say I was very disappointed. The owner is looking to sell the property and clearly has lost interest in the daily operation of the hotel.... More
