After reading all of the previous reviews we booked our honeymoon with our fingers crossed that Casa Blanca would be everything we hoped for. Once we arrived it exceeded our expectations in every way. Mar and Alberto really are that wonderful, the food really is that fantastic, and the house and grounds really are that beautiful. There was no lack of activities to keep us busy - renting bikes and golf carts, snorkeling, swimming, fishing, etc - but the house is so fantastic that we could have spent all of our days there just lounging around. Highly, highly recommended!

I can't say enough amazing things about this little piece of heaven. Just stayed for a week from 2/14-21, with 2 families of 4. The house is spacious, comfortable and being right on the beach, very cool. Alberto and Mar make the house "a home", with all their warmth and expertise about the island. Alberto knows all the fishing spots, and the waters around Ambergris like the back of his hand. They make the stay fantastic. Getting to town is a 15 minute boat ride. The surrounding restaurants are very over priced. We mostly had Mar cook for us, which was a luxury and a treat. I want to go back!

We just got back from our second stay at Casa Blanca with our first being in 2006. As great as ever. Alberto was at the airport to pick us up and take us in the boat to our hideaway. But first, we stopped by the grocery to pick up items we wanted for our stay (you can also send a list prior and the groceries will be there upon your arrival).

We had our usual great meal that evening that Mar prepared. The next few days we went fishing, snorkeling and spear fishing along the reef. Nothing like having fresh-caught lobster and fish for dinner. Alberto knows the area so well and offers fantastic suggestions of where to take you on the boat; all you have to pay for is the gas.

Two floors can be rented with each about 2,000 square feet. It is spacious and comfortable. A sun deck is on the roof as well. The grounds are beautiful.

A thatch covered roof has been added to one portion of the dock so that it is a great area to relax looking out over the water. And though you are right on the beach, you feel nice and secluded.

If you are looking for a personal experience, this is the place. You can make it the most relaxed or the most adventurous.

My husband,16 year old son, 27 year old daughter, her husband & I just returned from Casa Blanca. We arrived at the airport in San Pedro where Alberto was waiting on us, even though we were an hour late. We took the boat to the house where Adrian and Mar greeted us with warm smiles and a beautiful house. Alberto cut fresh coconut from the trees in the front yard while Mar brought out our dinner for the night. The next morning we were up and on the boat for a great day of fishing & snorkeling. When we arrived home Mar had coconut tarts and coconut crust waiting on us. Alberto & Adrian cleaned our days catch and Mar cooked a meal fit for a king. I can't say enough good things about Casa Blanca. We are looking forward to staying at the house on our next trip to San Pedro. We take home with us warm memories and full stomachs.

  • Liked — The house was large with great beds and very clean
  • Disliked — There was nothing we didn't like

Just spent a week here and absolutely LOVED every minute of our time! We had three generations (ages 2-71) with us and all had great fun. The house spacious and elegant, yet comfortable for families. Alberto and Mar were wonderfully responsive to our every need, always helpful and kind. Snorkeling was fabulous, fishing exciting, and Mar's tortillas are not to be missed! Can't write enough good things about our time at Casa Blanca!

I didn't actually stay at casa blanca, just photographed a wedding there but my goodness it was amazing. We spent quite a bit of time there and if you want extreme luxury and intimate privacy while still being close to town and activities this place is HEAVEN on EARTH!

AMAZING!
