The nicest and most accommodating staff I've ever met. I felt at home. The resort is right on the beach walking distance from great waves. The water is warm and the food is some of the best we had in Costa Rica! Laura, Cindy, Cezar, Oscar.... The best staff! I can't think of anything they could do to improve our... More

Our honeymoon would not have been the same if we did not stay here. The place was beautiful and the staff was very friendly. I actually made friends with the bartender and he took me and another guest out fishing for the day with one of his friends. The lay out of this place feels secluded and private but it's... More

To start, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. I had heard of Florablanca's reputation and the rumors of how beautiful this property is, but I was blown away by my actual experience. If you're on the fence with another place to stay, your choice should be here - done. You simply cannot get a better, more beautiful beach resort experience... More

My wife and I explored Costa Rica for the first time and had an amazing stay at Florblanca. Not only were the grounds, accommodations and food/drinks first rate, but the staff were super friendly and wonderfully accommodating as well. The property is intimate and serene—literally in unspoiled jungle at the edge of the Pacific, tropical flowers, iguanas, howler monkeys and... More

Truly nothing short of amazing. Beautiful place, people and scenery. We were so fortunate to be able to experience Florblanca. It's reputation proceeded it, and if anything was understated. The restaurant (and particularily the staff) were amazing, the spa massages were epic and the Yoga instructor was world class. Patient, kind, talented and hilarious. The Yoga was a huge factor...

The place is beautiful, service is great, prices are high, including 10$ charge for town transportation if you don't have your own (or you can take bicycle from the hotel). For surfers - you need to walk 7-10 minutes to first surfing beach. Breakfast is not included and again pricey. Beautiful animals and birds all the time. pool is great... More

This place was exactly what we needed. Gorgeously designed with real attention to what makes Costa Rica unique. We stayed 3 nights at the Surf House and loved the view of the beach through the trees. We felt transported to another world. Having a fullsize fridge was great and we stocked it from the store down the road. The next... More

My wife and I visited Florblanca in April 2014. Simply put, we had the best time ever. The staff, the grounds, the food and all the drinks we had were the best. Stefano is a great yoga instructor, we were lucky to have taken his class. We were also glad to see the rain finally come while we were there.... More

this little resort does however fight the dry spells when people call it a dust bowl but that my friend only occurs when you LEAVE the facilities, that is beyond its walls!
