I have visited Costa Rica seven times over the last 30 years. My sister and I had dinner there about 25 years ago. I am now living here and decided to take my wife to Villa Blanca for her birthday. We stayed for one night. I can attest to the hotel/restaurant being the best experience I have had in Costa Rica!! The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to attend to your every need. The cabinas are kept spotless! Each one has a fireplace which you can enjoy during the evening. The grounds are well kept and you can go for walks on the trails to see the flora and fauna, especially the beautiful humming birds. We had lunch there and watched the Costa Rican soccer team win their World Cup game. Dinner was excellent and well presented by the chef. They grow their own vegetables there! The staff presented my wife with a small cake and sang Feliz Cumpleanos (Happy Birthday) to her! Overall, I rate everything about Villa Blanca as EXCELLENT!!

I loved the road to the hotel. When I arrived I felt verry welcome.
My Rome was 2 steps from the pool and the view was unforgettable: the City Atena and the aria around. Sometimes it's foggy and sometimes it's cover with clouds. Jonathan the owner helped me to find my way to people I wished to visit and even made phone calls to make it easy for me. Invoked 3 nights in Atena Hotel and he agreed to separate the nights for me.
Miss this place a lot!

This is a NUDE facility for couples. Expedia is not clear on that. "Adults only" often refers to a place that doesn't want children as they promote it to guests as being peaceful and relaxing. It is marketed in Costa Rica as a nude hotel for couples.
That said, it is a BEAUTIFUL location with a large and lush surrounding area. I was the only guest that evening, so the option of keeping my clothes on (!) did not cause any awkwardness. The owner and staff were wonderful and gracious and brought me food and wine as I relaxed in the jacuzzi and sauna. The room was clean and elegant.
In the morning, there was a huge and delicious Costa Rican style breakfast, and some world-class coffee (grown in the mountains of Costa Rica). The owner walked me around the site and showed me the beautiful scenery and the gorgeous pool area.
I really loved the place and the staff were perfectly amazing.
I would recommend it - but of course, it's nude, so a limited market.
It is a gorgeous place for Expedia to endorse for groups looking for that type of venue. The owner only allows couples - it is not a singles place and he wants to keep it safe and legitimate so there is screening. There is a nice dance floor and recorded music for the guests if they are so inclined.
