I started off not very happy at this hotel. We went there for a luxurious break and for the surfing. First off you drive through a dusty backpacker town to get there - don't let this put you off. Then you arrive and they tell you you can't swim in the ocean outside the hotel except at low tide. And no, you can't surf there either, you have to walk 5-10 minutes down the beach (it's actually a bit further). OK so at this point I am really disappointed. But things really improved from here! They organised amazing surf instructors and the "teaching/improving beach" is only a short 5 min drive away. The walk to where you could surf from the hotel really wasn't bad either and we did it every day. The food and service in the restaurant was fabulous especially breakfast and the sushi, but all of it of exceptionally good quality and fresh. The beach is practically deserted and beautiful. The sunsets are amazing, you must go out to the beach to watch. The occasional howler monkey in the trees, loads of iguanas, lots of birds, and even the cutest tiny local skunk (I know, can you imagine a skunk being cute?). The pool is very nice and largely very quiet. It became one of the favourite places of our stay. So overlook the neighbourhood, deal with the travel to surf and enjoy it!

Room Tip: Only a couple of rooms have ocean views. The 2 bed family rooms do not sadly.

We just got back from one of our BEST trips ever! Everything at Florblanca was outstanding - food, service, rooms....and of course the great company of our friends. We had a group of 12 traveling together, and Cody and Alonso were so helpful with organizing meals, day trips, spa days.....I don't think any of us have ever been so well taken care of! :)
The resort is beautiful - paradise. Left with wonderful memories...and we can't wait to come back! Thank you to the entire staff!!!

My husband and I just got back from our second visit to Florblanca. Florblanca is the perfect dream getaway for couples or with friends. Cody and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect vacation. The attention to detail is evident in every way at Florblanca. The open air villas, the spa, yoga on the ocean, the pool and the amazing food and drinks were all the highlight of the trip. The views of the ocean are amazing anywhere you choose to relax at Florblanca. Enjoy fresh, delicious food and drinks poolside, beachside or in the open air restaurant, Nectar. Florblanca is the perfect getaway!!

My husband and I returned for our second stay at Florblanca Resort to celebrate his 40th birthday with friends. The staff went above and beyond all week and we loved our open air accommodations! The spa treatments were a highlight of our trip as well as yoga overlooking the ocean. Be sure to enjoy a fresh coconut after yoga and a mint lemonade poolside. Pura Vida! Florblanca is a special experience and a must-visit!
