Surfers looking for a place to rest after a day of riding the waves will feel right at home at Florblanca’s Surf House. This fairly recent addition to our resort offers a spectacular oceanfront vista, three air-conditioned sleeping rooms, one bathroom, large refrigerator and plenty of comfy outdoor seating. Able to accommodate up to six guests, the Surf House is the perfect place to bring a group – and at only $400/night for two people ($50/night per additional guest), this is one vacation that won’t break the bank.

Here's what the popular vacation travel magazine Travel + Leisure has to say about Florblanca Resort in it's article "Costa Rica's Hottest new Hotels and Lodges."
"It’s not often that you come across an Asian-inspired resort in Costa Rica—especially one located on Playa Santa Teresa’s best surf break. Here, it’s more about blissing out than riding the waves. There are only a few dozen guests at any time, and everything is designed to soothe—from the boulder-studded pool, where you’ll feel like you’re swimming in an aqueous Zen garden, to the bamboo spa bungalow, with its ponds and shoji screens. Each of Florblanca’s 11 villas is accented with organic fabrics and native hardwoods, and all have terraces outfitted with hammocks. (Book the Surf House, steps from the ocean.) After an evening yoga class on the beach, kick back with a tamarind mojito—or two—from the open-air Nectar bar."

Frommers listed Florblanca as one of the Best Luxury Hotels in Costa Rica. Here is what they say about our resort:
"The individual villas at this intimate resort are some of the largest and most luxurious in the country. The service and food are outstanding, and the location is breathtaking, spread over a lushly planted hillside steps away from Playa Santa Teresa."
This elegant publication singled out Nectar at Florblanca in their Food & Dining section for "Beachside Elegance in Costa Rica."
"Chef Spencer's ability to employ fresh local ingredients in imaginative and tasty ways is a true art. Creativity and thoughtful presentation convey the passion and love that goes into every plate."

Florblanca Resort is proud to have been featured in a recent Alister & Paine Magazine article entitled "Pacific Surf Town’s Luxury Resort: Boutique Costa Rica Resort is the perfect balance of adventure & elite splendor."
The article author expresses that "the combination of simultaneous rainforest and oceanic environment is breathtaking, like nothing you’ve ever seen before." With luxurious villas and spa treatments, close-to-nature living, and activities and amenities offered within the resort as well as the surrounding community of Santa Teresa and the Nicoya Peninsula, Florblanca provides the freedom to enjoy the resort and area as you wish.
The resort is nestled on the tip of the southern Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica and in addition to daily yoga, pilates, and on-site spa services, guests also love to explore horsebackriding, forest excursions, ziplining, and surfing at one of the world’s greatest breaks – right outside your villa door. An interview with Florblanca General Manager Cody Dillon reveals that she came for the surfing and never looked back.
All of this relaxation and adventure at Florblanca Resort is topped off with "out of this world" cuisine from the on-site restauarant, Nectar: "Executive Chef Spencer Graves, renowned Chef who worked with the likes of Thomas Keller at Per Se and now creates innovative Pacific Rim fusion seafood with locally sourced ingredients daily."
