“Quiet hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Spent a couple of nights here as part of a business group and really enjoyed it. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, modern baths etc. Breakfast was fine, with good service and very friendly and accomodating staff. Best of all however are the grounds and surroundings. The garden is made up of mature trees, flowering plants. A walk up the road behind the hotel in early morning took me through sugar cane fields to some indigenous forest, and when the mist cleared, a view of a smoking volcano in the distance.

We had only one night in this gorgeous place but recommend it highly. The gardens are sublime, the room was very comfortable and spacious and the food delicious. A terrific stop over point for white water rafting. Intimate and peaceful.

We stayed here in March 2012. The location of the hotel is very nice, and the scenery lovely. The hotel and grounds are well cared for. The front desk staff were outstanding. Our room was fine, other than a problem with the door latch. The latch would not catch without applying the force of a 300 pound gorilla. When this was brought to the attention of the staff, they sent the maintenance man, who was clearly aware of the issue. He demonstrated how to apply the 300 pounds of force to get the door to latch, and nothing more. The food in the restaurant was not particularly good during our stay, and the staff in the restaurant were not friendly.

Within twenty minutes of arrival I was lolling in the Jacuzzi, and the swimming pool staring at the moon. Lovely property way up dirt roads into sugar cane fields - a zillion brilliantly colored birds.
Very gracious staff. Excellent food. My only complaint is with travelers who don't stay there when
they are in Turrialba.

Room Tip: My lovely room faced out towards hills, the front porch.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

This hotel is a few kilometers from where we live in Costa Rica. I would not normally use it because home is only thirty minutes away. But during a bad storm recently all the roads were blocked and Villa Florencia was the first hotel that came to mind.

They were very helpful and friendly and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others. They are about 4 kilomters out of Turrialba. They have a pool, a restaurant and a very quiet atmosphere. The only drawback for me was that they have no air conditioning which for bronchial problems in a very humid storm made it difficult. But you can't have everything, and this would not bother most people.

Room Tip: They do have junior suites with a jacuzzi. Nice for a young couple

We stayed there for 4 nights, with our two kids. It was very nice. Host are just so nice and welcoming. Pool is good surrounded by huge trees with many birds. Wonderful jacuzzi and very good food, which is important as the hotel is about 5 miles from Turrialba center, ir is better to have dinner in site with kids. I recommend this hotel. From there you can visit coffee plants easily

We arrived weary after 12 hours of travel, including multiple wrong turns which ended up being the long route to Turrialba. The host and staff were so kind and accommodating, I could not get over how they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The following day, as we left for a rafting trip, they followed us to the van with pool towels. They let us keep our room and come back and shower in the late afternoon after the excellent rafting trip with Green Frog Adventures (also highly recommended). The open-air common rooms, beautiful grounds surrounded by sugar cane, and friendly staff who seem to enjoy sharing information about the region make this the place to stay in Turrialba.
