We just returned from an incredibly vacation with our two children, ages 12 and 14, at Florblanca. The hotel - more like a boutique resort - is beautifully situated on the beach, off the main dirt road, about 2 km south of Playa Hermosa. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa,which was set in the jungle trees with partial views of the ocean and plenty of sights and sounds of howler monkeys every morning. The huge vase of tropical fresh flowers in the living room space made us smile every morning. Both bedrooms are air conditioned which is a huge plus since it is very warm there. Now to the staff: UNBELIEVABLE!!! From the concierge staff to all the Nectar restaurant staff - we felt so fortunate to meet everyone and be taking care of by so many wonderful and professional people. Professional - but warm and fun, giving us all kinds of advice on what to do (or not do do) where to eat, where and when to surf, and how to make great fruit smoothies. They were just terrific. We took a few yoga and pilates classes as well, both of which were fantastic, not to mention the open air setting overlooking the ocean. And yes, I agree with one of the previous reviewers about doing a 6 month training program prior to arrival! The whole town seems to revolve around healthy living in general, and more specifically surfing, yoga and pilates. Everybody is beautiful, but in a very natural way. We would return to Florblanca tomorrow if we could!
