“Charming and unique!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Everyone at the Villa Casa Blanca is wonderful! Love the view from the covered breakfast patio, and really appreciated the use of the open-air kitchen. What a way to have folks get to know each other (if they want to - you can certainly 'choose' your level of social interaction...).
The parrots are a special addition. Breakfasts are ample and good, rooms are comfortable and clean. Their pool is small and 'cool', but great for kids to have fun in. The Coco-club pool just a short walk away is elegant and 'deluxe', and includes a fabulous view and lots of loungers.
The beach is safe and very interesting, with black sand (will get super-hot!) and clear water for snorkeling and exploring around the volcanic rocks at the 2 ends of the little bay (part of the larger Papagayo bay, so waves are not big here.
My son and I really enjoyed spending the last few days of our trip to C.R. at the Villa Casa Blanca!

Had a wonderful time in playa del coco and at villas casa Blanca. Modesta is so friendly, makes you feel like family. The parrots are a hoot!! Will definitely go back.

The owners are trying to sell this hotel, which would be a good thing - with the right care and upkeep, it could be an absolute gem!

While the service is very good, the property itself suffers in the meantime. We had a honeymoon suite, which it turned out was far worse of a room than the others down on the first floor. A little dirty, very dingy, and less-nicely appointed than the lower-floor rooms. We were the only guests there, so breakfast was not very impressive.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the very nice regular rooms, not a honeymoon suite.

We spent three nights in one of their honeymoon suite (#11) with sea view, which is largely blocked by trees, but still. The room's spacious, furniture not really modern, with a huge walk-in shower facility.
We didn't use the pool, which is rather small, more like a cold jacuzzi...
Since short, the Hotel has become an institutional member to two clubs, which enables hotel guests to use these facilities, too and that's a really gorgeous thing. One club is just a few metres from the beach, next to Father Roosters Restaurant & Bar: the Club is just about to open, no kitchen or any drinks yet, but the pool's fine!
The other club is back in Coco village, some 3 km from the Hotel: and it's fantastic! What a swimming pool! And a fully fledged air-conditioned gym to work out! BUT: no restaurant / bar yet operational but soon to come, as we were told.
The owner lady and her staff are very friendly and helpful, you really feel like sharing their private house with them, they'd always be around, ready for a chat and to be consulted.
The Hotel is for sale these days and we hope that the potential new owners will carry on with the same, charming spirit as is/was the case only a week ago.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the suites with seaview

beautiful little hotel with an amazing sea view. located about 300 meters from the beach, much more quiet than the huge l'ocotal resort in the bay. rooms are very spacious with great showers and beds, very relaxed. breakfast on the porch in company of three parrots,suzy being the one to never shut up, constant source of amusement. the receptionist is very helpful as well.

ocotal is a few minutes(four dollar cab ride) outside of playa del coco, much more quiet and relaxed though. going to coco beach is really only good for dinner and going to the supermarket.

if you are like us and you like scuba diving, you can take advantage of the dive shop at the resort down at the beach, two dives including equipment are about $100 per person, you get to see lots of stingrays, sea snakes, octopus and in between dives you'll see whales if you are lucky. highly recommended.

Our room was adequate, nothing special with a decent size bathroom, a/c, and was clean (ants in the bathroom though). The parrots at breakfast were very entertaining. The pool was great. Short walk to the beach and “Father Roosters” restaurant; short drive to the town. The owner was extremely helpful with accommodations, directions, suggestions on sightseeing and so on.
