“A Little Bit of Paradise--Mexican Style”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

A first-time, wonderful two week vacation at the Villa Blanca. All hotel staff provide excellent service. The rooms are modest, very spacious and clean. We asked for a fridge for our room and were accommodated the second day of our stay. On-site restaurant food is good. Margueritas are the best! The hotel provided yoga and water aerobic classes weekly. There were many evenings of excellent musical entertainment. The beach club is a five minute walk. The food and staff there are good. The beach is beautiful and quiet. However, there is an undertow there to be aware of. The beach club has a pool. The first week, the beach club pool was clean although some tiles are missing. The second week, it turned green. On our last day they were doing a major clean-up. Many restaurants to choose from in nearby town of La Crucecita (20 minute walk). Excellent shops (jewellery, weaving, etc.) to browse. Super Che grocery store is a five minute walk from hotel. There are many excursions available for the area. We went on a boat tour (snorkelling, beach) and outback safari tour--both were worthwhile. I would recommend this as a vacation for middle-aged couples, many of whom come back year after year.

lt was our first time in Huatulco, Feb 18th - Feb 25th 2014 and we found the weather to be hot without a drop of rain...........quite favourable for hours in the ocean with stints at suntanning. Villablanca was filled with great people who made sure our rooms were spotless and had info to fill our days with lots of adventure.........walking and cabbing to the many golden beaches shopping and dining in La Crucecita and Santa Cruz and exploring the natural beauty by boat. Thanks to Janha, our smiling lady who took great care of our room, the Villablanca tour rep , Hugo , the hepful manager, and a HUGE thank-you to Giovanni who was a fantastic server ,fountain of information, and had a great command of English. He should definitely be promoted......definitely! We will be back for sure. Peach and Francesca

Room Tip: We were above the kitchen........lucky we like garlic!

This was our first time travelling to Huatulco. The Villa Blanco doesn't appear to be anything special when you first arrive, but we really came to appreciate it as the week progressed. The rooms are spacious and the air conditioner worked perfectly. We didn't find the bed to be hard, in fact we slept extremely well here. We ate here every day at least once and ordered drinks for around the pool in the early evening everyday. Yes- going to the Supermarket for items is easily possible, but the price of a few drinks didn't seem worth the bother. The breakfast buffet was standard, but you can also order off the menu free of charge (omelettes, bacon, etc.). The location is superb if you want to see a few different beaches- some are walking distance, others are a cheap cab ride. We liked the Chahue beach- very close to the hotel. The beach is gorgeous and fairly empty, although the water is more for adult swimmers.
The ambience at this hotel is priceless. We really noticed the respect level between visitors here. For examples: people were drinking responsibly, parents were managing their children well, nobody was playing extra loud music, people were extremely friendly, and although the hotel was busy the pool area was never overcrowded and table/sun chairs were always available. We totally preferred this accommodation style to the all-inclusive resort.

Room Tip: Do not take a third floor room if stairs are an issue

As a vistor to villa blanca (2 adults + 2 children under 10). This is a nice hotel, all the pros and cons listed from previous visitors are pretty accurate, in my opinion.

cons for my family (but were not deal breakers for our enjoyment of this trip):

- breakfast not included for the children
- runny eggs
- noisy air conditioning
- very hard beds
- limited English speaking staff
- for our needs as a young family a kitchennette or at least a fridge would have been ideal for our 1 week stay

Pros:

- This hotel is very clean and has a cozy feel to it
- The kids and I loved the pool
- The staff was always very friendly and aimed to please
- Their Margaritas were the best! (and I ordered one everywhere I visited in the area :)
- Great access to the super market (2 minute walk around the corner) with many food choices (think mini walmart)
- El Pastor (taco stand in the evenings only) on the same street as Super Che (maybe 5 minute walk past it) offer very good tacos... The 4 of us ate and drank for a little under 20CA$.
- Good hamburgers at the cantina right beside the hotel (evenings only)
- the beaches... take your pick! Personnally I liked the Chahue beach because it was large and mostly unpopulated with people, but the waves were too strong to allow the boys to go in... they loved running away from the lapping tide though and I enjoyed watching them. We walked to Santa cruz beach which is much smaller but good for swimming, and Entrega beach was good for swimming/snorkelling (5$CA taxi ride). We rented snorkel gear for 5$CA/person for the day.
-2 towns in short walking distance to choose from to explore.

Room Tip: The loft style rooms are more spacious for a family

This is our first time in Huatulco and our first time at VillaBlanca.
Our room was cleaned spotless everyday and the cleaning staff made it fun coming into our room with swans and flowers made out of towels. The breakfasts were excellent and I loved the herbal tea.
Staying at the VillaBlanca you are not far from Santa Cruz or Le Cruicetia. We walked everywhere even though the cabs rides are cheap (25 pesos) for most places. We have eaten supper in the restaurant twice and our food was good.
There is a supermarket about a block away where you can buy alcohol, food and some clothing (like our Superstore in Saskatchewan).
We would definitely come back here again and stay at the VillaBlanca again.

The staff at this small hotel are what makes it special. The level of service given for the price paid is exceptional--people really work hard here and so many go out of their way to help, without expecting a tip every time. The hotel is kept very clean, and the room was kept spotless. The maids do a very thorough job.

The pool area is also well-maintained, and is a great place to hang out and meet other guests, which many people do, if only to swap info about beaches, stores, restaurants etc. We met lots of nice people in our week's stay. The hotel has a laid-back vibe, and attracts lots of repeat business.

The Super Che carries beer, wine, liquor and grocery items (not much for clothing) plus more--sort of a small scale Walmart. It's about a block away--5 minute walk.

Short cab ride or 15 min walk to La Crucecita, closer to Santa Cruz.

Breakfasts were adequate--lots of fresh fruit and juice, french toast, waffles, pancakes, cereals, breakfast tortillas, and several local breakfast buffet items. Also can order off the menu.

Other restaurant items for lunch or supper are mostly local food, which we didn't generally care for. The guacamole and burgers are OK. Otherwise, we and most other guests ate in town (don't really understand the rave food reviews for the restaurant).

We'd stay here again, no problem. Lots of restaurants a cab ride or walk away, so restaurant really isn't a big issue.

We have stayed at Villa Blanca 3 times in the last 3 years and although we like the location and the hotel, as I as a traveller appreciate true reviews, I will give just that.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The beds are a bit hard unfortunately but not uncomfortable enough to avoid another stay for us. The pool is good as well, but not big especially when there are children at play. I am not a bird lover and there are a lot of birds that swoop the pool during the day. But again. . .not enough of a bother to deter our return to the hotel.

Breakfasts are average. The service is decent. Only complaint is that when trying to contact hotel prior to visit I was not able to get responses by email and on the phone they did not try to get an English speaking representative to talk to as I know there is usually someone on staff that does. Very frustrating.

Decent hotel.
