“A Great Place to Honeymoon!”
Reviewed October 16, 2010

My husband and I spent 5 days at Florblanca in June as part of our two-part stay in Costa Rica. We spent the first 5 days in the Arenal region. Florblanca was LOVELY. We were so happy to arrive and see our beautiful villa. We went to dinner after settling in and enjoyed a delicious meal right near the ocean. It was heavenly. We loved our porch and were greeted by howler monkey most mornings. We spent hours in the hammock watching them play, eat, and sleep. Among our other Santa Teresa adventures, we tried surfing lessons, walked several times into town, did a couples massage, and lounged by the pool.

We were enthralled with the natural beauty of this resort in unspoiled curroundings. Our outings were thrilling! The staff was like family. We saw howler monkeys from the back porch/living room of our villa and were even able to see cappucin monkeys upclose by the waterfalls. Don't miss the horseback riding that the staff sets up for you--incredible views. The yoga was uplifing in every sense of the word; so well-taught I brought my teen to class. The food at Nectar was incredible and the staff was warm, friendly, and helpful. Pura Vida!

My sisters and I make an annual summer trip for adventure and a way to catch up since we live such busy lives across the country. It is a nice time to leave family and work behind. But NEVER has it been so hard to leave one place as it was to leave Florblanca. I think we would have stayed forever. The villa was beautiful. After full days, surfing, sunning, zip-lining, and eating we would retire to our rooms and sleep so peacefully. The food was AMAZING. The staff was so very helpful. Everyday was a blessing. But my absolute favorite part of the trip was the beautiful yoga studio and wonderful teacher, Stefano. It would not be an overstatement to say that not only did Stefano improve my yoga practice, but he also elevated my outlook on life and how I exist in the world. The entire week was a beautiful magical and unforgettable experience. Thank you.

If you are looking for a beautifully maintained hotel with excellent service - you have found it. I was very impressed with the staff at this hotel, and the yoga classes in the yoga studio were exceptional, the spa is beautiful. The only problem you might have is being too comfortable at the hotel to enjoy the attractions in the area.

Spent a week at Flor Blanca on our Honeymoon and had the time of our lives!!! The staff is
so amazing and friendly. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. You just can't go wrong. Anytime we wanted to venture out of the hotel grounds, the staff set up everything for us. You will be well taken care of to say the least. It is the best hotel in Santa Teresa...hands down, you won't be disappointed. If you want to do Santa Teresa the right way, then you must stay at Flor Blanca. Pura Vida!

My wife and I were looking for a really nice resort for a honeymoon in which we could catch up on some rest & relaxation; however, we wanted the option to venture out and explore what the area had to offer. Florblanca was the perfect balance between relaxing retreat and exciting excursions & adventure.

Starting with the service...Florblanca's service from the moment we arrived was wonderful. When we landed at the airport, we were welcomed by a sign with our name on it and driver ready to take us to the resort (and a cooler of drinks in the car, might I add). When we opened the door to our room, they had left us champagne & flowers throughout the villa. Also, The resort also has an phenomenal restaurant. We ate every meal at there. The staff was exceptional and by the end of the week, we felt like we were leaving friends...in fact, we hugged many staff members on the way out.

The resort...The place was unbelievable. With only 10 villas on the resort, we never had to worry about people crowding up by the pool, spa, hammocks, rocking chairs, etc. Each villa was surrounded by plants & vegetation making the places feel extremely private. Outdoor shower was awesome! All in all, the setting was one of the best things about the place.

To do... The first couple of days, we laid around the pool and read. Once we got the urge to venture out, there was so much to do. My wife and I went zip-lining, surfing, yoga classes, four wheeling, etc. The best thing about it...we didn't have to plan in advance. Florblanca has a concierge that set up everything for us. Typically, we would decide at breakfast what we wanted to do that day and then we would ask concierge to set it all up for us. They took care of the rest.

All in all...We felt like this place was an unbelievable get away for couples...I would highly recommend it!

My husband and I stayed at Florblanca for 4 nights at the beginning of May. It was one of, if not the, nicest resort hotel that we have ever been to. The bungalows were beautiful, the staff was fantastic and the only complaint we could think of is the very loud frog that would decide to sing on occasion at night. But that is the price you pay by staying in the jungle!
The restaurant is one of the best we've been to and we do consider ourselves 'foodies'. One of our favortie things to do is going out to eat. We didn't have high expectations for Costa Rica, but the food at Florblanca rivaled some of the finest restaurants we have been to all over the world.
We have travelled quite a bit and this was one of our favorite trips to date.
I could go on and on because we loved it so much, but I will just say you need to experience it for yourself! You will not be disappointed.
