Loved waking up to looking off our back patio and seeing dolphins in the ocean. Lovely location and well kept. We came for a wedding and were surprised to find out that they didn’t have any place to get food onsite before 11 AM. There are kitchens in the rooms, but we were only there for two nights and had...

Firstly, this is not a hotel or a resort. It's a condo development pretending to be a hotel. Hotel staff are there to process you, but lack warmth or hospitality. Rooms are large with the noisiest central air conditioning system ever !! Decor is dated (circa 1980's Marriott Hotel). Beds are comfy and rooms are clean. Pool area is ok....

Had a great time at Casa Ybel. Service was fantastic as well. Coconuts outdoor pool bar was a nice addition to the trip. Kevin R. and Jeremy were our servers and they could not have been nicer. Their service was incredible and I would highly recommend coming here if you have the chance.

We enjoyed the resort and the beach and pool are nice. The water in the ocean was murky, not clear like down at Bowmans beach. The restaurant and pool bar/ restaurant were good. The no see ums left us with many bites. I think the resort needs to get control over those or we will not be returning. We had...

i don't even have enough space to write how much this plane sucked all i can say is how the service was absolutely horrible. i had over a hand full of problems and they didn't help with any. First you pay an outrageous amount of money to stay here and nothing is provided but a room which isn't even a...

We walked up the beach from our condo on a slow and sunny fall day to investigate Casa Ybel's Coconut bar. It's located poolside a short walk from the beach. Based on some of the previous TA reviews we were a little hesitant but gave it a go anyway. Very glad we did. With the sun, beach, pool, friendly bartenders,...

Love Casa Ybel!! We got married here in December 2015 and it was such a beautiful setting. The wedding staff that they have is amazing and the day went off flawlessly. My husband and I stayed at the resort on our wedding night and the room was great. My family stayed at the resort as well. We all enjoyed the...
