Attention to detail, the architecture is unique, a blend of Asian and Mexican beach villa located on the beach near restaurants and shopping. The owners built the villa and is luxurious, beautiful and artistic. Every detail is taken to create a peaceful and beautiful with comfortable bedding, high quality sheets and towels. The staff is professional and make sure guests are well cared for.

We drove up the steep cobblestone street to the top of the hill, found the hotel and were greeted at the gate by the very affable Manual who carried our bags up the stairs to Bella Vista, the highest room at Villa Bella. The panoramic view of the mountains, jungle, farmland, town, marina, hotel grounds and bay is stunning at all hours of the day and night. We completely enjoyed sitting on the patio listening to little more than crickets, roosters and the occasional dog barking--super relaxing.
We visited during low season, so Manual offered us a tour of all of the other unoccupied rooms. All were equally beautifully designed and decorated, and all offered wonderful views of the panorama described above. It would be a pleasure to stay in any of them.
But it would be remiss only to describe the beauty of the rooms and the views. The warm hospitality of the staff was remarkable. We wanted to watch a World Cup qualifying match, but recent heavy rains had knocked out the satelite connection to the television in our room. Resigned to reading about it later, we sat out on the patio until we heard Manual calling up the stairwell. He had gone from room to room until he found one with good reception and had found the game for us. He insisted that we bring our cervezas with us and put them in the freezer because he had only just then plugged in the refrigerator. As I said, remarkable.
Highly recommended!

Having stayed at Villa Bella before, we were thrilled to stay in one of the newly remodeled rooms with a fantastic view of the ocean this time. Everything about our week long stay was fantastic. When Elsa and her staff, Rosa and Manual, without any advance notice, found out we had been married a week before, they pulled together a beautiful wedding reception for us at the hotel complete with food, flowers, cake and a local photographer inviting all the quests at the time. it was truly amazing! We were overwhelmed by her kindness and generosity and will absolutely be returning!.
