5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

I recommend this place to everyone who wants to forget the city and the pressures of job. This place is very quite and calm, the beautiful beach is very close and you can enjoy it all day because only a few people get there. One of those days when we were there we had the chance of seeing some unexpected dolphins even the locals were surprised because they said they have never seen dolphins in that area and that close like 5 metters from the beach it was amazing! The pool is private and the weather is perfect. Besides they offer different options if you want to go fishing or doing somethig else.
I spent two days with my wife and we had an excellent time on last July, everything is very close the supermarkets, drugstores, souvenir shops, and differents places if you want to go out and have fun. Modesta and Nestor were just great!!

Room Tip: Any room will be ok!

My husband and daughter stayed our last night in the hotel and it was one of our favorite places to stay. The pool is private and beautiful and the veranda/deck is so inviting. The location was perfect. We felt close to everything and yet far enough away to feel safe and relaxed. The rooms were perfect for a family (several beds in one room) or several friends traveling. Rooms included a nice breakfast which was a great way to start the day. We'll be back! We also loved the charming and very entertaining pet birds at the hotel. Ole' Suzie! This would be a great place for small groups of friends and/or family.

Room Tip: Ask Danny the manager or the Owner for recommendations of what to see in the area....

Modesta saved our vacation! Our travel agent sent us somewhere else, which was terrible. A local man called Modesta, who made accommodations for us on a moments notice. The room was clean, cool, and away from the party noise of Playas del Coco. We loved Fatima's and Letti's breakfasts of eggs or french toast, fresh fruit, and gallo pinto (wonderful rice and beans). Loved the veranda for breakfasts and chatting. It was fun to compare adventures with other guests. The outdoor kitchen allowed me to conserve money by eating in, but restaurants were within walking distance. The hotel at the pool was the right size and within sight so I could still watch my kids while fixing lunch or dinner. My daughter especially got a kick out of the bar stools in the pool next to the kitchen. Casa Blanca has agreements with 3 other nearby pools, two are right on Ocotal beach. The third pool has an adjacent workout room. Although, there is no need to work out in a gym if one chooses to "walk the ridge" with Coach Danny in the morning. Great workout and beautiful views of Papagayo bay! The gardens around Casa Blanca are beautiful even in the dry season. Modesta and her staff are excellent hosts, helping arrange or give directions for tours or local (free) attractions. Modesta even shared her aloe plant with my son when he refused my efforts to apply sunscreen. The girls provided laundry service for a modest fee. We left our laundry in bags outside the door and found them clean, sorted, and folded when we returned. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I have recommended this hotel to others and can't wait to return.

Casa Blanca is a true beauty off the beaten path and very boutique like! A unique Costa Rican experience surrounded by luscious nature and a pleasurable stay from start to finish! Delicious fruit, pancakes and coffee in the morning accompanied by the birds and a stunning view. Loved walking to Ocotal Beach and of course the tres lux exclusive Beach club. Sincerely the best hospitality ever- thanks for a wonderful stay and fabulous time! See you again very Soon!

My sister and I took our teenage kids to Villa Casa Blanca for a week's vacation. It was a great place for us. Modesta and Nestor were excellent hosts, helping us arrange tours, get taxis, and improve our Spanish. They also are just generally nice, fun folks. We liked the small size of the hotel. We felt like we were staying among friends and family, and not overrun by a bunch of others at a big resort. The breakfasts were substantial, not just a little fruit and toast. Our kids need a big breakfast to keep them going and Fatima and Letti made us food to carry us through our adventures. The rooms were were nicely kept, very clean, and comfortable, including AC. The beach and the club house nearby were a big hit with the kids - lots of swimming options, and abundant wildlife to explore. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: We didn't stay in them, but there are a few larger rooms if you want more of a suite option.

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!

Room Tip: Rooms vary in size and options, and so of course, in price...
