I enjoyed my week long stay at Villa Montana. I was in Isabela on business, and I found this resort to be a relaxing end to each day in the office. My room was on the cliffside. Pulling into the driveway each evening right next to the door felt a little like home. The door had a regular metal key and not a magnetic card. This did mean that, upon my arrival, early for check-in, the man at reception had to call housekeeping to bring over (what I suspect) was 1 of only 2 keys for this particular room. However, as I said, I was checking-in early, so not everything was waiting at reception yet. The room was clean, though, I was able get settled pretty quickly.
The property is well kept. I could tell someone had recently touched up the paint by a faint, but familiar smell. It had charm and character and felt very relaxing. The restaurant looks like a page right out Pottery Barn catalog. Tropical Trailrides is located right next door. The horses come down the cliffside road everyday around 6:15 or so. I thought it was charming, hopefully you will think so too.
The room had reliable free wireless internet, but I got no cell reception at that location. Expect airplane noise from the nearby airport. Its infrequent, but when it happens it is very loud. Planes take-off on a reliable schedule every day.
