Good hotel for the price. Not fancy but quite adequate, stayed for 8 nights and never a problem. Great for divers, 4 shops all close. Boats pick up at dock across the street. Good snorkeling right from the beach. Restaurants close by and friendly people. Easy to get a taxi to town 5 minutes away. Basic breakfast included in the price and Arturo was always there to make sure we were okay. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Go for the superior room, very roomy. A/C was always cold. wifi worked well.

I've stayed at the Villa Blanca several times. Very clean, and it's comfortable. It's not the fanciest hotel on the planet. Instead, it's relatively small and has some local charm.

The grounds and pool are well maintained. The beds are comfortable. All the rooms have a TV, phone, and fridge. WiFi access in the rooms is spotty. Superior rooms are spacious and have a day bed. Standard rooms are somewhat smaller, but certainly adequate for 1-2 people.

There is a restaurant on site. My preference, however, is to go into town for supper most evenings. Town is an easy 45 minute walk, or a $7 cab ride.

The hotel caters to divers, and has a rinse tank and hanging bars for gear. There are 4 dive operations within a 60 second walk, including my personal favorite, Papa Hogs. The hotel is across the road from the shore. There is a beach of sorts, although the best beaches are not found on this section of the coast.

Overall, excellent value.

Room Tip: The hotel is arranged as a 'U' facing out toward the street. My preference is a room toward the back, furthest from the street. Second floor Superior rooms toward the front have the best ocean view.

Hotel is a bit outside of town (ferry or cruise ship dock areas) but its only a 5 minute cab ride to either area. You are between both "towns" so its only a 5 minute cab ride to either area. Scuba shop is attached to the hotel so if you plan to dive you are in a great location. The hotel rooms are nice. Plenty of space. Good AC. Food is good too. Very friendly staff. For the price this is a good hotel.

Stayed here for a week in early May 2014 while scuba diving (Papa Hogs Scuba Emporium is next door). This hotel was both convenient to Papa Hogs and was a very good value. The "Superior" rooms are spacious and clean with a refridgerator and TV. Hotel hot tub and pool were also very nice and well maintained. The walk to town and restaurants is less than an hour.

Recently stayed at the Villablanca Garden Beach Hotel for 10 days while diving Cozumel. Stayed in a Superior Room which was very spacious and clean with a comfortable bed and a beautiful view of the water. Hotel rates are very reasonable and they try to meet your every need. I hope the owner appreciates the value of the manager (Jorge) who resolves every problem in a short time and always puts his guests best interest first. There is a small Cantina type Restaurant that has excellent food and the price is right, compared to other restaurants on the Island. Artero, the Restaurant manager, has lots of stories to tell and ensures you have the best he can provide in the way of food. If you want something not on the menu, just ask, they may be able to provide it, such as lobster. Artero aims to provide what his guests want and made several adjustments to the menu to satisfy our food requirements. You can eat outside on the covered patio or inside the small air conditioned restaurant. All in all it was a good experience and one I plan on repeating several times a year.
Also, the dive shops are right next door and across the street with two piers for departing dive boats. Very convenient.
