Hotel Villa Casa Blanca

Near Father Rooster, 150 m from the beach, Ocotal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

If you want to be close to Playas del Coco but still have some solitude, you can't beat this Victorian-style bed-and-breakfast enveloped in a hillside bower of tropical plantings. Four-poster beds, plush furniture, soft jazz, and Victorian detailing set the mood in the rooms while the lobby area has a sunken reading nook behind the dramatic staircase. The honeymoon suites have deep soaking tubs built for two, but the hotel is showing its age—the bathrooms are in need of some TLC. The outdoor pool is small and chilly, with an adjoining hot tub. There's no room service, but the obliging staff can arrange for private dinners to be enjoyed by candlelight at the pool or on the terrace. A Continental breakfast provides fuel in the morning and tableside entertainment is provided by various pet parrots that are vociferous as well as notorious moochers.
