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. We found the Surf House to be the perfect blend for our family -- beach front surfer vibe while being able to enjoy the luxury of the resort. We ate... More

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. We would visit again in a cooler... More

We just returned from a fantastic stay at this marvelous luxury resort. It takes a bit of effort to get to Florblanca, but once you have negotiated the dusty roads you will arrive at a great reflection of what Costa Rica is all about, simple beauty. The villas are tastefully huge with air conditioned bedrooms and outdoor bathrooms sitting in... More

Dear Traveller, Thank you so much for your review. Your description of our villas as "simple beauty" is exactly what we are going for. With breathtaking surrounding, it doesn't take much.

Stayed in April 2016 with two adults and a four year old. Whole experience was near perfect during our three day stay. Overall the level of service is on point with other high end chains such as Four Seasons and St Regis but comes with the family feel of a boutique property. Here you can choose to interact as much...

Dear Traveller, Swimming in the crystal clear tide pools in front of the resort is on our "must do" list! We are happy you took advantage of one of our favorite spots and even saw an octopus. When people ask about our treatment at the Spa, it is hard to recommend just one. But, the full body coconut scrub followed... More

Flor Blanca is heaven on the beach in Costa Rica! It is one of my absolute favorite beach hotels. There are only 10 villas, including 1-bedroom villas, 2-bedroom villas, and a honeymoon-suite that is so perfectly romantic. It's the ideal place for couples celebrating special occasions or for families with older children that would appreciate a quieter beach town. Spas... More

We arrived at Florblanca via twin engine from San Jose with our two children (10 & 13). What an amazing experience!!! The plane ride was magical! We landed in Timbor on a bare bones landing strip with a bench along side, the adventure began! The dirt roads added to the adventure. We arrived at Florblanca and checked into the magical... More

Came here with my partner for the day. The yoga studio, although beautiful had about 30 people in it and we were extremely squashed. The food was ok, but the waitress forgot two things we ordered, which was not what you would expect at this kind of resort. Lastly, after spending near 70usd here during the day, we were not...

Located on the most idyllic beach Florblanca was a great start to our Costa Rica luxury holiday. The villas are beautiful and tucked away within trees behind the beach where you feel like you are in a mini rainforest. The food is exceptional especially if you like fresh and healthy.
