Unforgettable Experience

This was our second trip back to Santa Teresa and it was even more perfect than the first time. Florblanca went above and beyond to make our holiday relaxing and fun.

The staff is truly what sets this resort apart from the rest. Not only did the staff remember us from our first visit, they made sure we were always taken care of. Ruth, Oscar, Yuri, Berneth, Allison, Kendal, Franny, Vinny and Luis always gave 5-star service. They were all very detail oriented and made sure we had what we needed and wanted at all times. This staff feels like family to us. We got to know everyone so well it made it very difficult to leave.

The food at the resort restaurant Nectar was unbelievably delicious and fresh. We ate breakfast at the resort everyday we were there and were never disappointed. Lunch by the pool was relaxing and dinners were beautiful. For breakfast we would recommend the Arugula Omelette, for lunch the Ahi Salad, and dinner pick the catch of the day! You really can't go wrong with any of the food.

We also had a couples massage while we were there and it was by far the best spa experience we have ever had.

The resort itself is so private that it makes you feel like you are alone in the rainforest. The rooms are breathtaking. We had the opportunity to look at all of the villas and you cannot get a bad room at this resort, they are all perfect. They have created such a good atmosphere you will never want to leave.

We also worked closely with Berneth and Oscar to plan our wedding at the resort. We cannot wait to come back!

Beautiful high end boutique hotel right by the beach

Flor Blanca is probably one of the most high-end places in Santa Teresa. With only a dozen of large hidden villas surrounded by a lovely garden, you will have all the privacy and space you will need while enjoying the pura vida life!
The lodge is facing the sea, giving you a good mix between jungle and sea experience (watch out for the raccoons who enjoy stealing from your minibar).
Our villa was great, with an amazing outdoor bathroom and beautiful bathtub. We also enjoyed the cosy living room and hammock.
The hotel also has very nice facilities: from a big two-level swimming pool surrounded by trees and plants to a lovely spa with a majestic jacuzzi! The beach also feels very private as it is a bit secluded from the main beaches of Santa Teresa, and offers some great tide pools at low tide. The staff was also very helpful and friendly!

Take me back to Costa Rica!

I had the opportunity to visit the Florblanca Resort in Santa Teresa for a yoga retreat. The resort also includes the Nectar restaurant so this review is for both of those. What an absolutely beautiful property and so well maintained. All the yoga classes were held in this yoga room that has the most amazing view of the lush surroundings and ocean beyond. Lets talk about the gorgeous pool area and yes private beach that are just steps away with loungers that face out to the ocean. And the spa! I've never been to a more beautiful spa. I got the relaxing massage and I never wanted it to end. I got to enjoy the fresh water whirlpool after. Seriously take me back! And everyone that works at Florblanca/Nectar…wow so genuinely nice and helpful always giving the best service. Wherever you are on the property I felt like someone was watching out for your needs. Just superior service and I so appreciated all their many small helpful gestures. The restaurant itself, the food was excellent. The seafood was so fresh. My favorite dish was the pasta with shrimp…so yummy! And their chips and dip…homemade pita chips with homemade guacamole (so good!), fresh salsa, this amazing bean deep, and cheese queso…I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it. Oh and the smoothies! Sooo good. My favorite was the Indulge. I had to take a pic of that recipe to take home. I would just like to give a special shout out to the people working at Florblanca/Nectar who made my stay there so wonderful: Ruth and Luis (extra special shout outs, thank you for the good conversations :), Kendall, Berneth, Yury, Lucy, Alison, Jose, Laura, and Oscar. Thank you again! I could not recommend this place more highly.
