Hotel Todo Blanco Review

This simple, beachfront hotel looks like a Victorian plantation great house, a two-story, white building trimmed in gingerbread fretwork. Each room has a balcony of white wood (indeed, all is white, hence "todo blanco"), a couple of beds of average quality with pastel headboards, white chenille bedspreads, ruddy tiles, a mini-refrigerator, and a safe. It's nothing luxurious—no phones, satellite TV in the lobby only—and a couple of hairy, big dogs for security. The lush lawn is punctuated with coconut trees and hammocks—important since reading a good book may become your highest priority. The view is breathtaking, and a waterfront gazebo is the stuff of daydreams. You'll pay $26 extra for air-conditioning (if you don't, remember to use the mosquito netting); a generous, full American breakfast is extra.
