I recently visited Florblanca with my wife and another couple, and that was our tagline for the trip, "Florblanca: They Never Let Us Down." From the moment we landed in San Jose, Florblanca was on top of everything. They coordinated our travel to the resort in Santa Teresa, even rebooking our charter flight due to inclement weather. The second we... More

From the moment we stepped out of the car at the resort, the staff at Florblanca exceeded every expectation we could have had for our trip to Costa Rica. We arrived during quite a rainstorm, and several staff members came to help us to our villa, bringing umbrellas for each of us (and making sure we had beers for the... More

Three things were very wrong from the start of our visit: the drive from the airport essentially requires an ATV as the road is an unpaved, unfinished ditch weaving from and between holes; the management did not bother to inform us that there was a major construction project ongoing directly next door to the house we contracted to stay in...

Dear Mark and Rony, It is disappointing to read this poor review after we did so much to accommodate you, and after a long email from Mark thanking me for helping. First and foremost, I would like to apologize once again for your less than perfect stay. The construction noise from our neighboring property has stopped. And, it was supposed... More

I'm not sure I knew what the perfect trip would look like until I got to Florblanca. The intimacy of each villa and the small number of guests made us feel like we were staying at our own private resort. The rustic, open-air living combined with the luxurious and air-conditioned bedrooms allowed us to experience the best of both worlds.... More

Do you want to hear monkeys in the morning to wake you up while sleep in an air conditioned room with sweeping jungle views including an open air bathroom? YES!!!! Florblanca might not be on a swimming beach, but it has every amenity. Also, the beach can be good for tide pooling and it's a 10 min walk in the... More

We just had the most magical week of our life celebrating our wedding at Florblanca. We literally could not have imagined a better experience for the whole week, and especially for the wedding.

It was the worst hotel i visited in my life. The tube in the bathroom broke and all the room was with a lot of water and a terrible smell. The manager of the hotel treated as really unproffesionally. They had 2 mistakes on our bill, in the resteraunt and in the room bill ( it is really strange). From... More

Regarding water in the room, our bathrooms are outside and open air. Any excess water would simply go into the gardens. There was one... More

Visited late April, 2016 for 4 nights. Took a helicopter (Helijet) from SJO which I HIGHLY recommend for super quick and interesting travel to this stunning destination. Helicopter ride was about 25 minutes and landed a couple minutes away from resort so we arrived in no time at all. The property is small, but there is no need for anything... More

We just returned from Florblanca and it was the best vacation of our lives. We traveled with our children who are 10 and 12 and stayed in the Surf House.

The villas and the staff were all we could hope for and more. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was a necessity for us. The completely open air bathroom was lovely as was the open living room with hammock. We took a number of excursions and used the pool, restaurant, Pilates studio and spa.
