“Curtis and Ashley have got this place dialed!”
Reviewed 12 May 2012

Everything was dialed in from the moment we showed up. We instantly felt right at home and they always went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Curtis and Ashley have a beautiful property, great staff and are amazing hosts. Great for couples or small groups of friends. Well located on the island...away from the main area, but close enough to get there when you want. Walking distance to a few good restaurants, etc. Curtis and Ashley are a wealth of knowledge as well, so ask for any recommendations on restaurants and be sure you get involved with Curtis' Sangrita! Only suggestion would be to add a little variety to the pool/bar area soundtrack...even though, and don't get me wrong, it's a great setting for some Jimmy Buffet!!

Room Tip: From what I can tell, you can't go wrong!

Lovely hosts, in an absolutely wonderful place, Ashley and Curtis have created an amazing environment for guests, the details of the design are thoughtful. We slept in a Palapa Room, on hanging beds, Ashley explained that she had always dreamt of having such beds when she was a child. Nothing more relaxing than those beds.
The location of the Villa is perfectly central, and yet you are facing the wild Caribbean Sea.
If you know of the Southern Hospitality, you ll find it there!
Breakfast is served on pretty porcelaine and will keep you fed until the afternoon.
Ashley and Curtis created the best restaurants guide for us too.
Oh and their bar is great, best margarita!

For our honeymoon, my wife and I stayed at VLB for a week and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. The owners are as nice and helpful as anyone could ever be and the staff is top notch. Our rooms were always clean, the property was always picturesque, and the drinks were consistently cold and delicious. Breakfast in the morning is a real treat. I am a breakfast kind of guy and being able to roll out of bed, fill a cup with fresh coffee, and chow down on a home-cooked creation was the perfect way to start a day. After breakfast my wife and I would usually lounge around the private pool or relax in one of the hammocks, but whenever we wanted to go explore the island, someone was always there to help arrange a golf cart or recommend something to see. There is a reason that Villa la Bella has hundreds of excellent reviews, I'm happy to add ours to the bunch.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Palapa #2 and the Honeymoon Suite. Both rooms were excellent and have their own nea...

We love this place!! This place is located on the Caribe side of the Island facing the ocean with a beautiful private beach. We we're surprised to be greeted with Ice cold towels to wipe the heat off our faces and found that to be a nice touch. The owners Curtis and Ashley run this unique hotel. We spent hours talking them about funny stories. We soon found out the sign out front which said "Beer so cold it'll hurt your teeth" was true. Lol. We really enjoyed this place and will certanly return to Villa la Bella.

My husband and I just returned from our 3rd trip to VLB and I'm already trying to figure out when we can go back. There is something that keeps calling us back time and time again. It must be the wonderful hosts, friendly staff and tranquil, comfortable setting. We stayed 7 nights in Palapa 1 which has breath taking view of the ocean. We fell asleep each night listening to the crashing waves.
Once again we met the best couples who we laughed with and lounged around the pool and breakfast area each morning.
I'd like to mention that I had two massages with Tanya. She is wonderful and her rate is very affordable. I had two in room massages. Imagine getting a massage while listening to the ocean waves.
I can't say enough great things about VLB. It's like coming home each time we visit. :)

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful.
