First of all, let me say that I've stayed in numerous hotels around the Pedasi/Playa Venao area. Villa Marina is by far one of the best hotels in the area, especially with the new room updates and the fairly new infinity pool/ranchito/bar. When you make a reservation, ask to stay in the NEW ROOMS. The hotel will charge you the same price for a new or older rooms anyway, and the new rooms are much nicer and cleaner. Villa Marina's location makes it a perfect (and the closest) hotel near Playa Venao, which has excellent surfing. The hotel's ocean front location has a great view of the bay, and is perfect for long walks on the beach.
The food served at the restaurant is mostly seafood, and I think was between $15-$20 for an entree.
We were also allowed to bring our 80 pound, friendly labrador, who mostly layed around in the grass or hung out in our room while we surfed.
If you're looking for another recommendation in Pedasi, I would highly recommend staying at Villa Camila. However, Villa Marina is the best hotel in the vicinity of Venao.
