Amazing place for a wedding.
I normally don't write reviews but in this case I had to let the world know that I got married in this amazing place. Everything was incredible from the service to the food. I had my dream wedding with my entire family from the USA. Everyone was amazed by this incredible place and how perfect it was. The little chapel and the scenery was so beautiful. At first I was nervous about having a destination wedding but once I arrived I was taken away by its charm. I arranged my entire wedding via email and phone calls with Juan Carlos. He took care of every detail. I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect.

I cannot imagine a place with more pure beauty, silence and extra ordinary service. The dining was top shelf with not only unique dishes but also cuisine which harmonized within the meal. The casita was very cozy with a nice corner fireplace. The guides were very knowledgeable and extremely friendly(Ticos)

Beautiful hotel, in the heart of the Cloud Forest. Charming cottages complete with fireplaces. Fabulous cuisine with locally grown food, and exceptional service. Be sure not to miss the Spa, especially massage therapy...excellent. Peaceful beautiful location with stunning views of the Mountains, Arenal Volcano and lush green valley and Rain Forest. Many activities to choose from, but we enjoyed just walking the trails through the cloud forest early in the morning, listening to the birdsong of the almost extinct jilgaro...haunting and so beautiful..we will return and recommend to anyone. This is a five-star experience.

Our stay at Villa Blanca was truly magical from the misty mornings to the Coati Mundi's who tried to eat lunch witih us on the patio: everything was wonderful. We discovered in a walk the lovely forest, the luscious vegetable garden and the unexpected chapel. The ceiling of the chapel is lined with hand painted ceramic tiles of angels of all sorts. I photographed them and when I returned home, I transfered the photos to fabric and made a quilt for my new granddaughter. It is a beautiful reminder of a lovely stay and unforgettable angels. The food was also delicious, gourmet and sophicated. It would be worth going there just to eat! The staff was very helpful and courteous and we hope to return one of these days!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our Costa Rican vacation and loved it! It is very remote and a great place to unwind and forget all your worries! They grow and raise all the food they serve in their restaurant! The food is just amazing!!! We did the nocturnal hike with Rodrigo and he was great! He saw things in the dark that I never would have! His knowledge of the flora and fauna was very impressive! He took pictures and sent us a link to few them! Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and the tour!

We spent the last 3 days of our Costa Rican holiday at Villa Blanca. After the heat and hustle bustle of the coastal destinations, it was blissful to arrive in such a peaceful and beautiful location. Our casita was clean and comfortable, and having our own little fireplace was a treat. The scenery is truly breathtaking, the trails wonderful, and the staff excellent. We went horseback riding, and had such a great time that we went again the next day. Our daughter had a blast milking the cow. The food was very good, loaded with fresh vegetables and herbs, many of which I understand are grown on the premises. A special thank you to Ronald for taking such good care of us in the dining room - he spoiled us by producing delicious hot chocolate for my daughter each morning at breakfast.

We had a 4 day stay with walks through the cloud forest, a trip to Arenal volcano, a trip to the coffee plantation and great food. Our luxury casita was clean, comfortable and had great view of the wedding chapel and a fire place to keep us warm at night. We went in late January so nights were a little cool but the days were t-shirt comfortable. As a nature photographer this was a spectacular experience with knowledgable and helpful guides. Don't miss the Biological Reserve Research Station. The trails through the cloud forest are beautiful, easy to walk and full of photographic subject matter. I hope to come back.
