Villablanca Garden Beach Hotel
Ranked #33 of 52 Hotels in Cozumel
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Just returned from Cozumel, and again stayed at Villa Blanca. This is approx. the 7th or 8th time we have stayed at this hotel. We absolutely love our superior room which is more spacious than any hotel room in its comparison category and the grounds are very well kept. I just love opening the French doors in the morning, and just a couple of steps, and voila - I am being served breakfast by Arturo and his staff (Nemo Restaurant). Jorge, the hotel manager, and his staff will bend over backwards to ensure that your stay is extremely enjoyable. I am getting "home sick" just thinking about it!

If you're looking for a resort that has everything you could possibly want, this isn't it. It does however provide things the bigger resorts don't have. Like very few kids, if any, no teenagers, no loud music, Internet in our room and as far away as the beach bar across the street. Beds were EXTREMELY comfortable (compared to the rock hard beds at the big all-inclusive resort up the street solicited heavily everywhere in Cozumel). A/C worked great, PLENTY of hot water (although it did taste a tad salty) staff was friendly and helpful, grounds are gorgeous and well kept and rooms are clean. The pool is large and kept clean. Keep in mind this is a 50 room hotel that caters to divers (3 dive shops nearby). Papa Hogs Dive Shop is next door, Dive Paradise is downstairs from Papa Hogs. You can get a massage next to Papa Hogs. Hogtown Cafe has good food, reasonably priced. La Hach restaurant is across the street. Lapalapita is a beach bar across the street 2X1 Margaritas & Pina Coladas, etc., all day every day.
There is a restaurant Nemo's on-site at Villablanca. It doesn't seem to get much traffic, although Arturo is wonderful and very informative about the culture and island life. We had the chicken quesadillas and they were excellent. We had dinner there, my husband had the grouper and I had lobster, both of which were excellent. The crab salad appetizer was simple but out of this world. We were surprised when we weren't given salsa and chips when we were at the table since that seems to be a staple in every restaurant in Mexico. The restaurant doesn't take credit cards.
We certainly enjoyed our stay, it was quiet, non-stressful (not like some other resorts where there are too many people). Guests seemed to interact with each other and strangers more here than other resorts we've stayed at.
Only complaint I have is that the fouton/sofa bed mattress was about worn out and was very uncomfortable to sit on, much less try to lay on.
We'll definitely be back. One of the most enjoyable vacations we've had.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a superior room, upstairs and toward the back to avoid street noise. Fouton/sofa bed was...

This was my fourth visit to the Villa Blanca. Great improvement with the free fast Wifi throughout! The maids are wonderful and thorough. Nemos restaurant with Arturo and everyone is always a joy. Special shout out to Benjamin at the front desk at night and in the morning for his special help to all of our group of six, most first timers. Jorge, your the best
And see all as soon as I can. Muchas Gracious.

I have been a customer of Villa Blanca for more that 10 years, they are finally coming into the 20th Century. They now offer free Internet and have combined services with their neightbors - excellent change. The location is still the big draw with them being half way between the locations that attract hordes of cruise ship visitors - Villa Blanca is still a quiet little place to go and hide, enjoy some great diving with Dive Paradise and just relax.

Room Tip: Second floor superior rooms are the best

This was our second stay at the Villablanca, and again we had such an enjoyable time. The staff are very helpful, and work hard to make it a pleasurable place to stay. The maids are just incredible, making the rooms look so clean and pretty. It is not a four star hotel with the all inclusive vibe....it is quiet, clean and relaxing which is just what we love about it. The beach area across the street isn't the best but it has some chairs and umbrellas. At least you are lying next to the ocean with the breezes to cool you off. We always book the premium room near the pool and never have difficulties getting Internet from our sitting area. This year we upgraded out skype account, and for 7.99 we were able to make unlimited phone calls rough the internet connection. Something I really recommend doing if you are heading to Mexico cause your cell phone doesn't work downthere. There are several dive shops right next door, we prefer Papa Hogs but had a great time with dive paradise also.

Room Tip: Pay the extra price to upgrade to a premium room. Also I recommend booking directly with the hotel...

I have been to Cozumel for 15 yrs, always stayed at the all inclusive hotels. This is a nice hotel for the simple pleasures of diving. Staff and grounds were kept very clean and nice, very quiet, not alot of screaming kids, you can hear a few tank banging in the mornings, but sound travels when its quiet like it is there, I woulod suggest this hotel to anyone looking for a nice dive hotel, the food at this hotel was the only drawback that i could find, its worth grabbing a taxi to find a nice meal, this hotel needs a good chef and it would be fantastico!

Room Tip: I had a superior room , 2nd floor, I had a great view of the water, hotel, people and cars going by...
