We spent 3 relaxing days at Casita de la Playa. It's a small, very friendly, family-owned hotel that serves a delicious hot breakfast to all its guests each morning. They do not have a bar, but they do have a guest refrigerator where you can store beer and wine on the upstairs balcony. It's a nice place to sit and...

It is in an excellent location overlooking the ocean but a minutes walk from the creole hardenned sand "main street" of Isabella, lined with decent restaurants and kids doing what they do best in such island life, play and have fun. Isabella was...

This hotel is gorgeous; on the beach and clean, tidy and modern inside. The staff have been very helpful too and whenever we have had any comments they have addressed them immediately. However, our room (302) was at the top of the stairs next to the breakfast room so we could not leave the blind open to appreciate the spectacular...

We had a lovely 4-day stay here Dec 29-Jan 3. We couldn’t have asked for a better beachside location, and also enjoyed being on the Western edge of town (currently a little less built-up, although clearly undergoing development). The breakfasts were good – we especially appreciated the yogurt, fruit, and fresh juice, and there was also a daily egg dish....
