Guest Spotlight: Marysia

One of our favorite frequent visitors to Florblanca is Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves and her beautiful family.  Marysia is the designer behind Marysia SWIM, a boutique line of swimsuits and resort wear for women.

A surfer and former ballet dancer, Marysia’s line of swimwear is inspired by fashion, surf, and travel. She is such an enthusiastic guest, excited about all we have to offer here and soaking in the Pura Vida lifestyle all the while.

She calls Florblanca “my favorite place on earth.”  Marysia, her husband, and two daughters find everything they need for a perfect family vacation at Florblanca.  In a feature published in Conde Nast Traveller in May 2013, she said of our Costa Rica resort: “It’s heavenly – I can watch my daughter play in the tidal pools while my husband surfs nearby.”

We are so excited to welcome Marysia and her family back for a week’s vacation and respite from this snowy, icy winter they’re experiencing in NYC.  What a perfect time for a visit!

Marysia posted the following in her blog:

I have not been to a place that had it all..(for us at least)….so I’m super excited to go back to this paradise. I plan to ride a horse on the beach on my b-day and surf with my husband on Valentine’s day.

Sounds wonderful!  Welcome back, Marysia, and enjoy your tropical Costa Rica paradise.
