Anyone stayed at both Florablanca and Pranamar? I am having a hard time deciding between the two. We are heading back to CR this May. With the green season specials we can get a Garden Villa at Florablanca or an oceanfront villa at Pranamar for about the same cost per night. Obviously oceanfront is a draw, but I want the best overall experience rather than just choosing a spot for room location. We have been to CR many times, but this is our first trip to Santa Teresa. We plan to be beach bums most of our stay to relax and enjoy our anniversary. So picking the right resort is important since we will spend the majority of our time there.
1. Is there any notable differences with the beach at either resort? We like a rough ocean view ideally. For example we like Playa Langousta far better than Tamarindo beach when it comes to sitting and enjoying the ocean surf and sunsets.
2. How is the overall vibe at Pranamar? We like a lively friendly/fun vibe in a resort. Not a party scene but an overall fun atmosphere to get to know people. When I hear yoga retreat my mind goes to a vision of a very serene spiritual meditating type vibe. Is this the case?
3. We do not have children. While not kid haters if one resort is better for less kids that is a plus for us.
4. We are huge foodies… Does that impact the decision between either of the resorts.
Thanks for any feedback. I have combed the reviews and pictures and still cannot decide :o)
