Villa la Bella is a simply beautiful, tranquil, wonderful place. The B&B is small and intimate, it's super easy to step out of your room downstairs for food, drinks, beach, pool, or out on the town. There's no crowds or elevators. If you're looking for peace and quiet, Villa la Bella is amazing.
Our room was beautiful. We stayed in one of the palapas, so we had a great salty breeze passing through our room, and we also had a beautiful view of the pool and the ocean. The decor is beautifully planned, from the conch shell showerhead to the cool built-in cement bench. We slept wonderfully on the big bed, creatively suspended from 4 ropes. I've never before swayed myself to sleep, but it was truly fantastic
Curtis, one of the owners, makes delicious breakfast in the morning. I'm still craving the breakfast lasagna! The fruit accompanying the entrees was so fresh and flavorful, and the Mexican coffee, delicately spiced, was delicious.
Ashley, Curtis' wife and co-owner, is simply a gem. The island goddess is so sweet and charming and helpful. Both owners and also their staff are great, and more than happy to help schedule a pick up if you want to rent a golf cart (which was perfect for exploring the small island's beaches and downtown) or whatever other activities.
The pina coladas served in hollowed-out coconuts with fresh coconut shavings on top are amazing, whether you take them to sit by the pool or enjoy them at the rope-swing barstools.
The island itself is really fun; small, accessible, and friendly. I've never snorkeled in clearer water! The beach right at Villa la Bella is good for snorkeling, and the little caves and rocks that you can walk down to are simply beautiful.
I absolutely will stay at Villa la Bella again and you should check it out! I came home feeling so rejuvenated.
