IMPORTANT! This is a separate resort from the Playa Blanca hotel/resort. This is a quiet place located right at the heart of the island. It's a small, quiet place. Staffs do not speak English well. Very small swimming pool. New cabins located at the back, about 20 steps from the non-swimable beach. A lot of fishes swimming right in front...

This resort is in a marina. Very quiet until the music from the bar down the street starts. The cabin are decent. Staff is not up to the vacationing standards most Canadians are used to. Objectively they are badly managed or not managed at all. Miss communication is at the highest levels and their customer service skills are not existent....

My better half and I stayed at the Villa Marinera March 4 - 11, 2017. Warning: Although this location is sold as a "room" of the Playa Blanca resort, the Villa Marinera is located about 15 minutes away by bus. On our first day we met some folks from Ontario who were upset as they expected to stay at the...

The manager of this very small hotel in the main town is very nice and speaks good English. However, I must warmly warn other travellers... we paid to stay at a resort. An all inclusive 4 star resort.. we booked at the Playa Blanca and were called the night before and told of renovations! We can cancel, or we can...

Everything you need if you like no fuss, no muss travelling. Rooms and grounds are spotless. Juan is the head waiter, and he is the best I have had at a resort in a long time. He works very hard. Barbara in reception will take care of all you may need. All of the staff at this resort are very...

I stayed at Villa Marinera in January 2016. I had a very stay. My friend and I got one of the new suites. Very comfortable. The receptionist was very kind and helpful. The two bar men were very curteous. I think was lacking was shuttles to Olé Playa Blanca - with whom Villa Marinera has the same administration. It would...

Previous reviews are pretty spot on. My favorite part of Villa Marinera is Juan. He is the restaurant manager at your service. Excellent coffee, excellent service and just an excellent man. It was wonderful to get to know him during our stay and can't wait to see him again. I will make sure that he is working if I schedule...
