I feel you've come to a special place when your experiences and memories of a vacation are not limited to the beach (beautiful in Santa Teresa's case), mountain, or other destination you chose, or how many cool pics you took, or how much you partied (or not!), but also include the place you actually stayed in. I recently spent 3 nights at Florblanca and it certainly is one of those places. I never felt so connected with nature while being in a hotel; the way the villas are so open to the outdoors, you can't help but relax with the ocean air coming in and the sounds of the surrounding vegetation; everything in the villa was absolutely spotless while still providing a sense of warmth and welcome. The pool area had plenty of areas to sunbathe but also plenty with shade. The restaurant was a delight; I managed to try several dishes for all 3 meals of the day and everything was delicious, and the prices were definitely reasonable. There are a lot of other dining options in Santa Teresa, some cheaper, some more expensive, but for the quality I was getting at Nectar restaurant, I did not feel the need to venture out, and the service was outstanding. Overall, a place I will definitely visit again and recommend to anyone!

Tropical waters, combined with a warm climate make Costa Rica one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the world. Located on the magnificent sands of the Nicoya Peninsula, Florblanca twins immense luxury with natural living. Villas are dotted around the trees and compliment the environment they’re set in. Unwind in a shady hammock or take a horseback ride down the beach to stimulate your senses and feel closer to nature.
Set part indoor, part outdoor, this relaxed and elegant environment is incredibly welcoming. The kitchen serves up New America cuisine with Latin and Asian twists to tantalise your taste buds. Ingredients are seasonal and about as fresh as it is possible to be with fish practically plucked from the sea straight to your plate. All meat is sourced locally as well as a large proportion of the fruits and vegetables.
Nectar’s breakfast from 7 - 11am, will get you up and ready for the day ahead with surfer’s burritos, banana pancakes and a huge selection of fresh tropical fruit and smoothies. Lunch is served from 12 – 3pm and if you have a day excursion planned, Nectar is happy to prepare a packed lunch for you. As with all meals, dinner, served between 6 - 9pm, is a culinary treat with different flavours and textures all infused in a sophisticated menu that will leave you satisfied at every serving.

Florblanca resort is one of the most unique resorts I have ever had the fortune to stay at. The property itself is beautiful - lush, quiet, and romantic. It is obvious that management has thought about what guests enjoy and have made those things available to those who come. The villas themselves are amazing. Spacious, clean - one of a kind accommodations.
The restaurant for us was great - something on the menu for everyone. There were many things we asked for that were not on the menu and the staff/chef were happy to accommodate us. The food could not have been fresher. Menu choices were healthy and portions were more than sufficient. We loved the staff - especially Oscar - who always had a smile on his face, both of the Fernandos (one of whom could make a killer martini), and Lupe - the beautiful young woman who was like a ray of sunshine.

WOW, what an incredible resort. I would recommend this to anyone who appreciates the finer things in life. The staff at Florblanca was friendly and attentive, the rooms were spacious, private and exotic, the beach and location are gorgeous.
For surfers, there are fabulous waves only a 5 minute walk down the beach at Rocamar and Santa Teresa Beachbreak. If you don't surf, you can fill your time with yoga, pilates, running, napping, lounging, swimming, eating, massages, reading or just about anything else you can dream up.
