“Best small hotel in Las Galeras”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

This was one of the most enjoyable places we've ever stayed. Las Galeras is in the middle of nowhere, and getting there is a real trek, but trust us, IT'S WORTH IT.
We really enjoyed the room, the service, hospitality as well as the beach. We recommend staying a few nights to explore all the beaches, the local restaurants and the friendly people that live there.
The hotel itself is well kept, clean, comfortable and the location is just great! The owner was really friendly and helpful. There are 3 big dogs that live there and will greet you every time you come.
While you are in Las Galeras, we highly recommend to take a boat to Playa Rincón.

I just returned from my trip to Las Galeras. I can't say enough good things about Todo Blanco, Maurizio and the staff there. Everyone was extremely accommodating and friendly. The hotel grounds were stunning and the location was perfect. I would definitely stay there again.

We went during the off season, so we where the only people in the place which was amazing. It is a very cute place, the guy who runs it is very nice. The rooms where well kept. There where only two things that really got us. One there was no hot water ever, and two there was dog poop everywhere. I don't think he had picked up after his dog in about a week or so.
But besides the dog poop, I would go there again.

Room Tip: The room upstairs are worth the extra money because you can over look the grounds and you get your o...

I really love Todo Blanco. I just returned from my second trip to Las Galeras and Todo Blanco. The hotel is absolutely lovely. The staff are available but not intrusive and the manager, Maurizio is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about good places to eat, visit etc. Both times I have been to Todo Blanco there have been families with little kids there and they always seem to be having a great time and the parents look very relaxed. There is tons of natural beauty on the grounds and interesting things for the kids to explore. The rooms are very clean and the optional amenities (AC, fridge etc.) are quite nice. I will go back again, hopefully with my whole family!

Room Tip: They are all good rooms with balconies and ocean views!

The hotel has no doubt - absolutly the best location in Las Galeras. The rooms a not from this century but more or less appear clean. The room offered a beautiful view as you can see in the pictures i posted. Also to prevent moscito trouble all beds have a net to sleep under. The breackfast was an extra 6€ (on top of the 65€ room rate) which seem not excatly worth while but considering the options it was OK. The hotel also works with a divecenter - but we did not went on a diving trip this time. I think i would go there again next time iam there

This is my idea of paradise - a Caribbean hotel, just how you would imagine it. White wooden buildings, balconies overlooking the sea and garden, charming and helpful manager. This is a quiet beach, and it's a lovely quiet hotel apart from some music from the local shack early in the evening. There are hotel dogs to play with too, and the rooms are lovely. We stayed here last year, and would come back any time. In fact I'd move in tomorrow! On a negative note, the hotel restaurant is open being run by outside staff, but we didn't think it was much good. There are much bettter, and cheaper restaurants in the village. The restaurant in the hotel has a breathtaking setting, but it serves bog standard Itailian food at high prices. And the service isn't good, with all the food, starters and mains, being delivered at once. Breakfast wasn't much good either. We ate at Casa Porque Non in the village which does delicious breakfasts.

Back to the hotel - it is a bargain for the money. They have added fridges in the rooms and new mattresses (which are very hard - I prefer soft mattresses but some people like these hard ones). Being picky, the baths could do with replacing and the bathrooms are a bit shabby now, but they work fine and things like that don't bother me at all. It might bother other people who are used to five star...... Playa Rincon is a boat ride away - a bit more development now but still miles of empty beach and nice swimming.

Room Tip: Upstairs has better views of the beach
