We spent three nights at Villa la Bella in one of the Palapa suites. The whole experience was excellent and incredibly relaxing. This was in addition to the excellent individuals we me during out stay, something that is made easy given the welcoming and friendly atmosphere at VLB (not to mention the excellent bar).
The room itself is truly unique. The windows have no glass and the room has no air conditioning, instead a constant breeze provides just the right amount of natural cooling. This also means that you go to sleep and wake up listening to the sound of the waves hitting the beach below the villa.
The villa is in an excellent neighbourhood for local food, with many excellent restaurants within walking distance. It is, however, likely that you will feel the need to eat much after the incredible breakfast cooked every morning. It is made with fresh ingredients and the volume of food is simply staggering, amounting to roughly three courses. All of this is complemented by excellent teas and coffee, whilst later in the day the bartenders serve up some of the best cocktails in Mexico.
Finally, last but not least, Curtis and Ashley (unfortunately we only had the chance to communicate with Ashley over email) are excellent hosts. They are fountains of local information and go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable, relaxing and tailored as possible, seemingly without ever breaking a sweat.
