We found Finca Rosa Blanca to be magical. We stayed here on the first two nights of our honeymoon in the master suite, and we both agree after much travel that this is our favorite hotel we've stayed at! Especially for a honeymoon or romantic getaway. If you want to stay at a tropical oasis for a few nights or a long weekend, surrounded with plenty of vegetation & flowers, funky architecture and gorgeous views from every room, definitely stay here, in the Master Suite.

I especially loved the giant windows overlooking the valley and mountains from every room of the suite, including just above the big tub in the bathroom, and the private terrace with great relaxing sunsets. It felt like a fairytale to sleep in the princess-style bed in the round glass room up the spiral wooden staircase, very cool. Bed seemed slightly smaller, maybe a double, but we didn't mind.

The rest of the building was gorgeously designed, yes very reminiscent of Gaudi in Barcelona, with great natural light and much detail to all of the murals and decor. The pool was a gorgeous oasis (yes that is my word for now!) in the midst of beautiful flowers and trees. We took a walk around the property one day which was nice, and mostly relaxed by the pool and on our terrace. The food was wonderful, we loved all of the fresh fruit and vegetables, much of which is grown on the property. Loved our lunches and dinners there too. Very nice staff, great service. A place to remember and return to!!

We started our honeymoon at FRB and fell in love with the place. We were lucky enough to stay in the Master Suite--a duplex with a circular bedroom. The room is smaller than it appears on the website, but is so charming and comfortable.

I would characterize this place as a quirky, interesting B&B--it is not a resort. It offers great personal service including wonderful guides (Manolo was the best!) in an intimate and eco-friendly setting. By eco-friendly, they do not use pesticides. Bugs were not a problem, but if you bring candy, soda, anything sugary into your room you will have little tiny sugar ants. They are harmless and they didn't bother us at all (and we learned quickly to get rid of all food before going into the room). They were also gone by the next day. If this freaks you out, then maybe reconsider FRB--or Costa Rica as you really can't escape some insect life!

We thought the meals were quite good and enjoyed the communal dinner much more than we thought we would. I think FRB attracts people who don't want the cookie-cutter experience. It fit our needs exactly.
