We stayed at Villa la Bella for week in early February. Ashley and Curtis are dream hosts and the place is really beautiful. It is easy to explore the island by bike (as we did) or by hiring a golf cart, which seem to be very popular. Curtis' breakfasts are most delicious, and you really do not need lunch after... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa La Bella on Isla Mujeres. This was my 8th or 9th trip to the island and first time staying here. Of all the places we’ve stayed this is far and away the best! It’s beautiful. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite which was awesome. The views, the pool, the grounds are just... More

Villa La Bella was very nice. It is a bed and breakfast with wonderful food! The owners and workers are VERY helpful and informative about the island and things to do. The place is very clean and quite, but you have the freedom to do what you want. There is a swing bar, which is open to the public, which... More

First and foremost - thank you to Ashely and Curtis for a wonderful stay. VLB and Isla Mujeres were exactly what we were looking for. My wife and I traveled with friends and stayed at VLB for 7 nights. We woke each morning to a quiet hotel (not really a hotel, more like a small family six-room resort). Quiet time... More

Curtis and Ashley of VLB make this little 6 room Bed and Breakfast a real treat. The views of the ocean atop the rock cliffs are spectacular. Anyone who stays on Isla Mujeres soon understands the term Island Time. The tranquil setting and easy pace of the staff and other guests is truely fitting to the island. We met some... More

VLB is incredible! We stayed three nights in one of the poolside bungalows, which are the least expensive rooms. The room was wonderful - we could hear and see the ocean through the large sliding door. Next time I think we'd book either the honeymoon suite or one of the palapa suites, as they afford more privacy. Since the bar... More

Curtis and Ashley were helpful and wonderful hosts. They were very helpful, providing great recommendations both for Isla and the rest of our trip throughout Riviera Maya. VLB is located away from the main tourist part of Isla which was exactly what we were looking for. It was close enough that we could walk or take a cab to the... More

Villa La Bella ("VLB") was everything we expected and more. We stayed for 9 days in the honeymoon suite in January 2010. The suite was even better than the pictures on the web site suggest. There are two balconies, one with chairs and a table, the other with two lounges and a table. Both include sliding doors to the room... More

My husband and I booked a last minute, 3-night trip to Isla Mujeres and were lucky to get a room at Isla Mujeres based on a recommendation from my parents, who stayed there several years ago. We could not have been happier with our vacation, and so much of that had to do with Villa la Bella. Ashley was great... More
