Hotel Villa Casa Blanca Review
For romance, you can't beat this Victorian-style bed-and-breakfast on a hillside buried in a bower of tropical plantings. Four-poster beds, plush furniture, and Victorian detailing set the mood in the rooms while the lobby area has been freshend up with vibrant tropical colors. The honeymoon suites have deep soaking tubs built for two. The outdoor pool is small but pretty, with an adjoining hot tub. There's no room service, but the obliging staff can arrange for local restaurants to deliver dinners à deux, to be enjoyed by candlelight at the pool or on the terrace. Waffles, pancakes, muffins, and savory dishes provide fuel in the morning. Breakfast entertainment is provided by various pet parrots that are vociferous as well as notorious moochers. Judging by the guest comments, people love the begging birds. Hotel guests also have access to a nearby beach club.
