We spent totally 2 days at the Inn before and after our Costa Rica trip. The place is a small oasis ... you would never think that you are in the middle of a bustling city. The canyon view and the sound of the water and birds transfers you back to the rainforest.
It is also conveniently located just 30 min from the airport (if no traffic).

Marsha, Dave, Elazar - are always there to help you or just simply talk to you. You feel like a welcome guest in their home.

Definetely will recommend!

We only stayed one night here, but wish it was longer! Eleazar & Marsha were the most gracious hosts! From the welcome on arrival, to the details in the room, they make sure that your every need is met. For example, Eleazar made us a yummy dessert when he found out that it was our wedding anniversary. Marsha recommended a good restaurant just down the street after getting us settled for the evening. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The pool was lovely, comfortable temperature and Eleazar brought out the pool toys for our kids. View of the canyon is absolutely spectacular. Enjoy a delicious breakfast and Costa Rican coffee. This place really goes the extra mile. Stay here!

Room Tip: Amazing views and service

We were so glad you mentioned you would be celebrating your Anniversary while
staying with us. Anniversaries are very special and we Eleazar was delighted to prepare his homemade pastry to add to the celebration.

It is always fun having children with us. Your two little girls were so precious and cute.
We were glad they were able to enjoy sometime in the heated pool before you left.
The pool is much more fun with toys and happy they enjoyed playing with them.

The girls were so gentle with Kalilou and she really enjoyed having their extra love and
attention. We so appreciate your taking the time to provide the kind feedback.

We look forward to having you again on your next trip to our beautiful country.

We stayed at Vista Canyon Inn the last two nights of our vacation in Costa Rica. We found the hosts to be very friendly and helpful, and we really liked that there was a hot tub on site. The view over the canyon is unique and we had a beautiful sunset the first night. We enjoyed a nearby Italian restaurant for dinner our first night, which was delicious and really reasonably priced. On our last night, we had burgers and fries at the inn. This was also yummy and so convenient to just enjoy dinner there. The breakfast was filling and there was coffee available before breakfast. A couple things to note: there are roosters across the street that can be pretty noisy at night/early morning and the drive the airport took around 40 minutes for us (not sure if traffic was particularly bad or if that is the normal drive time). Our first night the roosters bothered us quite a bit, but the second night they didn't seem as bad.. not sure if we were just too tired, or if they didn't make as much noise that night.

Overall, we thought Vista Canyon Inn was a great value and the owners seemed genuinely friendly and interested in making sure you have a great stay. We would stay here again.

We are glad you chose Vista Canyon Inn for your last two nights in Costa Rica.
Our sunsets are beautiful and enjoying them from the hot tub with a glass of wine
makes it even more special.

We hope to be offering dinner options on a more regular basis in the future.
And glad you were able to join us.

The roosters in the neighborhood sometimes get up a little too early.
But, as one of the guests commented. It is part of the Costa Rica experience and
something you don't experience in the city.

Your drive to the airport probably took a little longer due to the construction in the area with a new bridge being installed. We try to make the guests aware and encourage you to include a little extra time for what normally is a much shorter trip.

Good news ! It should be completed by the end of the month which is great news for everyone.

Your kind comments are so appreciated and we really enjoyed having you with us.
We are delighted you loved Costa Rica and look forward to having you as our guests again on your next visit

Thanks again
Marsha

This little hidden gem is worth it! The service is INCREDIBLE and the rooms are clean, homey and spacious. You can really tell that Marsha & Dave are running this place with love. Homemade food and amazing views.

This was a one night stop for our group, but no one wanted to leave!

The only complaint was the 3 AM rooster wake up call... but to be fair, Dave warned us! haha

Make this a stop, no matter your end destination.

It was our delight to have you and your friends stay with us for just one night.
We too wished, you could have stayed longer.

I love offering special dining when we are full, and happy you joined us and enjoyed your meal. We work very hard to make sure our guests have a memorable experience when staying with us.

Sorry, about the early wake up call from the neighborhood rooster. Don't forget we promised to comp your room if you took him with you. LOL.

Please know our home is always open and hope to see you on your next trip to Costa Rica.

Kindest Regards
Marsha

We were amazed at the beauty behind the walls once we got to the inn. We were greeted with Cocktails and such warm friendly service. The rooms were top notch big and spacious. We are already planning another trip back.

Room Tip: All rooms were fantastic.
