After trekking in the Osa Penisula and in the highland parama and staying in rustic lodges, the Villa Blanca was upscale comfort. The landscaping was lovely and the trails easy and well-groomed. Because we only stayed one night we weren't able to take advantage of the any of the tours or the in-house spa. Given the variety of bats we...

We had a wonderful meal at the restaurant. All the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room, a deluxe cabin, was gorgeous and comfortable. A bit...

Everything about this resort was beyond perfect. The hospitality service was a 5 Plus as anything that we needed was taken care of in a matter of minutes. Our own Casita (little house) was adorable with its own Jacuzzi Hot Tub in the bathroom along with a wonderful tiled shower. The Casita also had a magnificent wood-burning stove with comfortable...

Had a lovely time at this hotel. Beautiful secluded location which was worth the long drive in from the main road. Rooms were spacious and lovely with a fireplace and large jacuzzi tub. The food was very good and the breakfast which was included was fantastic. I'm a vegan and the staff were very accommodating in modifying dishes for me....

Villa Blanca lies within the Los Angeles cloud forest, a setting both natural and yet almost supernatural. With its unique combination of exotic flora and fauna and shrouded cloud forest setting, it truly is a place apart from the world around it. You can explore this new world on guided or self-guided hikes, including a nighttime walk that reveals the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just over an hour's drive from San Jose International Costa Rica airport (SJO), eco-minded travelers from all over the world have reveled in the beauty of Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel, located within the Los Angeles Private Biological Nature Reserve & Research Station in the Canton of San Ramon. The hotel is ideally situated as a gateway to Arenal Volcano and the famous Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Here, you're immersed in one of the world's most precious and complex jungle ecosystems - the cloud forest. This boutique mountain hotel is nestled on 75-acres of gentle rolling hills, with well-appointed "casitas" and Honeymoon Suites, each with their own fireplace, and surrounded by acres of lush botanical gardens. Originally owned by former president Rodrigo Carazo Odio and First Lady, Estrella Zeledon de Carazo, Villa Blanca has become a renown and cherished Costa Rica destination. The architecture reflects the original farm village concept, with a welcoming Hacienda, offering guests exceptional Costa Rican hospitality, premier dining, a private theater, conference facilities, and pampering spa menu. Also quite unique is a replica of a 14th century Roman wedding chapel, La Mariana, with its hand painted ceramic ceiling. Choose from a variety of nature-based activities, including horseback, zip-lines, and user-friendly guided trials, plus excursions to Arenal and Poas volcanoes, hot springs, and rural-cultural tours. This is the Costa Rica where those who "travel well and travel right" want to go. Please feel free to visit our sister-site, one of the most prestigious Manuel Antonio hotels, Si Como No. ... more   less
