This is my third time staying here and I can't say enough good things about it. It is quite simply perfect. There are 6 rooms, but it never feels crowded even when it is full. The owners, Ashley and Curtis, treat you as guests in their home and it feels like you live here when you stay here. A & C always have incredible restaurant suggestions and will help you coordinate any activites on the island, including golf cart rental. The Palapa Suites are the coolest thing around, but there is no denying that Palapa Suite #1 (the one closest to the ocean) is definitely way better than Palapa #2. It is the landslide winner for my "favorite hotel room in the world". The bed is hung from the ceiling by ropes and swings as you sleep, which is magical. There is an in-room hammock that makes me feel bad for the rest of the world when I'm relaxing in it because everyone else isn't. The Honeymoon Suite is also fantastic and the poolside bungalows are a great value, although the rooms themselves are nothing to write home about. Either way, I have dreams of renting out all 6 rooms and bringing an entire group of friends to stay here together for as long as possible.

The pool is crystal clean and lovely. The bar staff is so sweet and helpful and I dream about their Piña Coladas all year round...they are THAT good! Exploring the rock formations down by the water in the morning is fantastic.

Usually, I stay a few days here and a few days up on Playa Norte, but this is the first trip when I think I'd be content just to stay here at Villa La Bella for the entire trip. I'll say it again. It is perfect!

Ashley and Curtis treat you like family they can't do enough for you. Renting your golf Cart, suggesting things to do on the island, cabs to anywhere. They are there to help if needed & give you the space you want on a vacation too. The rooms are lovely and the view is spectacular great to sleep on the swinging bed. You really feel welcome here whether its Curtis' breakfast or a beer from the bar on your running tab no need to carry cash here. Again A&C do it all to make you just RELAX and take in their little section of paradise on Isla De La Mujeres. Don't miss the Friday night Happy Hour!! Gracias

Every time someone has had an issue with our attitudes, it's 1 of 3 things: the group/ person is being inappropriately loud, has had too much to drink, or wants something that we simply don't offer. If we have to say something to a guest, it's because they are being inconsiderate or thoughtless of other house guests.

We're very upfront with what we offer as well as our policies: unhappy guests aren't fun for anyone. Thanks to all you happy travelers out there. We love ya!

Not sure there are any other adjectives left to describe VLB... But they are all true! It was exactly what we were looking for and so much more. Perfect location on Isla, warm and friendly hosts and very cool property. Palapa suite was almost surreal with wide open windows and cool sea breeze. Combine that with slight sway of swing bed and it was like sleeping on a boat! The entire stay was relaxing and a great winter treat. We have been a lot of places and had many great times- but for some reason this place is pulling us back for more!
Already planning our next trip- Thank you! Curtis and Ashley!

Most beautiful place on the Island! From the conch shell shower head to Curtis's breakfast, everything is a art form. [including the margaritas brought to you in a coconut shell ]
