The owners of Casa Blanca are Canadian. They have created a beautiful and quiet oasis very close to the beach. Only a few rooms, all have refrigerators and some have kitchens. Every possible need a traveler might have has been provided. Clean pool.

We just left CasaBlanca after a 2 week stay in the Las Palmas apartment and we miss it already. This property truly is an oasis in LaLibertad. The hosts, Dodie and Randy are truly special people. Their philanthropy towards the underprivileged Ecuadorian children is inspiring. They were incredibly helpful with trips to the supermarket, restaurant tips, directions etc. We really enjoyed Dodie’s tour of the Mercado which allowed us to purchase fresh fruit and veggies from her favourite sellers.
The property is beautiful, full of fruit trees and flowers. Our apartment was very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with all you need to prepare meals. We were also invited to use the outdoor kitchen or the unique wood burning BBQ if we wished. The beach is just a few steps from the property and completely undeveloped. We spent our days walking the beach, watching the pelicans, observing the locals fish by nets. Very relaxing.
I would highly recommend a visit to CasaBlanca -Dodie and Randy are so welcoming it feels more like being guests in their home than a hotel.

I don't know who the reviewer is who gave the one-star review, but they surely have the wrong place! There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this place or about the proprietors, Dodie and Randy. It was all lovely in my humble opinion. For ny more detailed review, check out their website. I could go on and on about this place!!! *Although I classified Casa Blanca as "near the beach," the beach is within steps of the beach. It is easy to carry all your beach things just around the corner, and it's more private than direct beachfront.

Casa Blanca Playa Cautivo a stone's throw from the beach has great amenities:The casitas have different themes and we stayed by one that has a fridge and kitchen complete with a bathroom/shower and a full size bed. Beautiful landscape as you enter the property with flowers and fruit trees.It includes breakfast in a beautifully decorated dining area with fruits and flowers with a different menu every day!

Room tip: Ask the hosts for a room selection since room varies.

From the minute you walk through the front gates, you will fall in love with this Spanish architecture property, located one block off Playa Cautivo. We have visited twice, once in July 2014 and the 2nd time in August 2016. The rooms share a fully equipped and sheltered outdoor kitchen as part of the common area. Sit by the pool and relax. Beautiful landscaping. Colourful flowers. Fruit trees. Breathtaking. Take advantage of spa and wellness packages, yoga and meditation classes, and facials/ manicures/ pedicures. Randy and Dodie are amazing hosts, who will help make your trip to the Salinas area a memorable experience! Casa Blanca Playa Cautivo is a unique and special property.

Room tip: This is more a resort lodging than a luxury hotel. Each room is unique and has a special theme and character of its own.
