A cloud forest retreat
Reviewed 3 days ago

We were worried we might run out of things to do at Villa Blanca for our four night stay with two teenagers. Upon reflecting on our two weeks in CR, this was one of our favorite stays. We enjoyed the many trails on the property and especially loved the night tour,. The casitas were lovely and quaint. We enjoyed spending time at the farm milking the cows, enjoying the grounds, the spa and took one excursion off the property to ziplinne at San Luis Canopy which was incredible,. We hope to go back one day!

Peaceful, quiet, pure cloud forest!

This is hotel is the perfect definition of a mountain lodge. Remote, quiet and peaceful. Nice trails that you can do on your own or with a guide. Bring a good book and enjoy the views. The road to get there is in good condition.

The haciendas were amazing and the staff was beyond compare. We had a wonderful time and especially enjoyed our nature hike. Dinner was very good and we enjoyed trying a couple of Christian's signature cocktails. Great experience!

Sleeping in the clouds
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

What a great place. This property is located some distance from San Ramon (about 40 minutes), but you won’t miss the hustle and bustle of town because you’ve book a room in the closest thing to paradise. The rooms are simply decorated, but you won’t spend much time in them so you don’t need fancy. There are hikes to hike, cows to milk, hummingbirds to watch, a movie theater (if you must have digital entertainment), a fire place that is perfect to sit around before dinner, and our room had a great jacuzzi tub looking into the forest. It seems the goal here is tranquility, and they’ve nailed it. I’d like to come back here and spend a few more days next time.

Second time to Villa Blanca...

The second time was just as good as the first. The staff, the food, the facilities and everything was above par. The area's natural beauty is breathtaking and preservation is taken seriously. Everything was excellent!
