We just stayed here for nine wonderful days. In the past few years we would stay for 3 or 4 nights as an oasis on our way to the Belize border, but have also stayed for week-long vacations in the past. It is always clean, friendly and familiar. The staff has become friends over the years and we have developed friendships along the beach. And the beach is one of the best in the area for morning walks and a mix of bigger surf to the south and calm reef protected swimming in front and to the north. Just a quiet relaxing chill place with great rooms that has become a part of our lives.

Property's Favorite Review
Two friends and I stayed in the 3rd floor 2 BR apartment recently and it was marvelous. The view was to die for, the food excellent, and the rooftop bar lovely. Our apartment was beautifully decorated and super clean and comfortable, with lovely blue tile. The balcony looked over the beach and sea and was just such a pleasure to wake up to every morning and to return to from our ventures. We walked up and down the beach to check out the neighboring resorts and came to the conclusion that the Villas deRosa has the best beach, best ocean waves, and nicest staff by far. Small and personal, the employees have been with the owners for years and it shows - excellent service and a great family feeling. The restaurant serves delicious food too. We were a bit of a pain - we broke our coffee carafe, and asked for ice and fresh tortillas (to cook ourselves) and there was never any hesitation. The design of the hotel with stairs and hallways open to breezes and beautiful archways giving glimpses of sea and forest were a bonus. Stay here if you like a quiet, relaxing vacation. We met a number of folks who've been returning for years. And we loved the eco consciousness - there was even a place to put our compost from the meals we cooked in our place.

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful week at Villas DeRosa again! Tony DeRosa Jr and his staff kept everything on time...from delicious meals to the transportation to & from the jungle cenotes (caves). The hotel was safe, secure, and followed all the extra health requirements making it possible for us to relax and enjoy our time. The beach was clean and pristine...the meals prepared by the kitchen staff were excellent, the condo and rooms all neat and clean. We have already booked a return trip!

I agree with all of the comments made by Lee W. and Sandra J. I've been to Villas de Rosa 30+ times in the past 20+ years. I've been going twice a year for quite a while. And I intend to continue going, because it provides everything I want at a reasonable price. The high level of personalized service is something that I suspect can't be met in the large tourist factories. And I was impressed by the disinfection protocol upon arrival, and upon return each day. So, if you want a relaxing stay on the beach, go to Villas de Rosa. I intend to. P.S. The current management took over some time in 2015, which was the start of continuous improvements, so I'll suggest ignoring any reviews before 2017.

I have been to Villas DeRosa many times and have kept coming back because of the family oriented, personal customer service, beautiful location on the beach, good food, well appointed rooms and support facilities and equipment to cave dive in the best cave diving area in the world. But this trip the Manager, Tony DeRosa, went the extra mile. When my results for my Covid PCR test (required by the Canadian government) failed to arrive as expected Tony called the medical centre to get an update. When their response was less than satisfactory, he hopped in his car, went to the Medical Centre and after much pressure, our test results were found (they had been mislaid) and Tony delivered them to us personally thus ensuring that we could successfully return the next day to Canada. I also appreciated that the resort and staff all adhered closely to Covid safety protocols, making me feel safe staying there. I look forward to returning again for many more years.
