The place is beautiful, peaceful and good trip to get relax. I recommend this hotel to honeymoon or couples to get relax because the place is very quiet. I love it and I will return for my next vacations.

What a wonderful surprise! High in the mountains, breathtaking scenery, and a luxurious country cottage, with two bathrooms, in the midst of the magnificent cloud forest! Gourmet meals served by the friendliest, most efficient staff. Could have stayed forever in this relaxing retreat!

Like being at a rich friends private estate. Could not be friendlier staff. Perfectly kept and clean. Gardens on the grounds outstanding. We just took to the walking trails and enjoyed everything from the hummingbirds to the iguanas. Highly, highly recommend.

The higher we went, the closer to perfection it became....soooooo beautiful and peaceful. I appreciated the fresh, cool, air after days of humidity. The rolling hills and grazing animals were a wonderful sight. I especially loved having my own little cottage..very quiet and charming. It is definitely a #10 place to stay.

We had a very restorative two day stay at the Villa Blanca on arriving in Costa Rica after an exhausting few days travel from the UK and in Panama. We loved the charming gardens, the cloud forest scenery, the wildlife on the easy trails around the lodge and on the excursion we took (many available), the helpful staff, the comfortable... More

Had we known how far away this was from "civilization" we may not have chosen this hotel. However, it turned out to be an amazing transition from the hustle and bustle of real life to vacation. Our boys, 9 and 11, roamed the property freely. We milked cows, hiked extensively, watched hummingbirds and found animals hidden in the forest. The... More

Can't begin to say enough positive things. This was our first 2 days in Costa Rica, and we needed the time to decompress. Villa Blanca is quiet, serene, removed from hustle and bustle. Warm, charming staff were consistently devoted to making sure our visit was as positive as could be.

Villa Blanca is truly up in the Cloud Forest - you can watch the clouds blow around you in the morning and the evening. Views are stunning and they really do have their own patch of Cloud Forest on the property. To walk through it and the rest of the grounds takes about an hour, so it's not just an... More

Villa Blanca is a gorgeous resort. It is true that it is a little bit far away (nearest town is about 5 miles away down a bumpy road), but honestly that makes it part of the charm. The hotel is in the middle of the Cloud Forest, and the scenery is stunning. We heard birds in the morning and that... More

We stayed at villa blanca with our two kids (8 and 11) for three nights. The hotel and grounds were beautiful and our casita was very comfortable. We loved the night hike through the cloud forest, where we saw frogs, lizards, and an armadillo, and highly recommend our guide, Hiram. The tour to Arenal and the hot springs was also... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Just over an hour's drive from San Jose International Costa Rica airport (SJO), eco-minded travelers from all over the world have reveled in the beauty of Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel, located within the Los Angeles Private Biological Nature Reserve & Research Station in the Canton of San Ramon. The hotel is ideally situated as a gateway to Arenal Volcano and the famous Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Here, you're immersed in one of the world's most precious and complex jungle ecosystems - the cloud forest. This boutique mountain hotel is nestled on 75-acres of gentle rolling hills, with well-appointed "casitas" and Honeymoon Suites, each with their own fireplace, and surrounded by acres of lush botanical gardens. Originally owned by former president Rodrigo Carazo Odio and First Lady, Estrella Zeledon de Carazo, Villa Blanca has become a renown and cherished Costa Rica destination. The architecture reflects the original farm village concept, with a welcoming Hacienda, offering guests exceptional Costa Rican hospitality, premier dining, a private theater, conference facilities, and pampering spa menu. Also quite unique is a replica of a 14th century Roman wedding chapel, La Mariana, with its hand painted ceramic ceiling. Choose from a variety of nature-based activities, including horseback, zip-lines, and user-friendly guided trials, plus excursions to Arenal and Poas volcanoes, hot springs, and rural-cultural tours. This is the Costa Rica where those who "travel well and travel right" want to go. Please feel free to visit our sister-site, one of the most prestigious Manuel Antonio hotels, Si Como No. ... more   less
