At the end of our very first day in Costa Rica, we were tired. Our real estate agent in Atenas suggested we might want to stay at Vista. He called Jonathan to ask about a possible vacancy for the night. Jonathan, the manager (who speaks perfect English), confirmed that he did, indeed, have a room available, and he suggested we book through a particular web site to get a rate better than he could give us if we walked in.
Within 2 minutes, we had secured a room (there are only 6 or so rooms total) for the amazing price of $29.00. After the short drive from central Atenas, we were greeted by an absolutely breathtaking view. The Vista grounds are immaculately kept and the view of the valley at night is a must see. Upon arrival, Jonathan greeted us, helped us position our car, gave us instructions for exiting the gated property, and really made us feel genuinely welcome.
The next room was nice, quiet, and very clean.
After a very restful evening, we were invited to enjoy a delicious breakfast. I had the pleasure of speaking with the cook afterwards.
Thinking that the low, low room price was a "bare bones" rate, I went to Jonathan's office to pay for our wonderful meal. To my amazement, Jonathan said, "No payment needed. Your room rate includes breakfast".
Even though we stayed only 1 night, Jonathan and the lady who owns Vista continually exceeded our expectations by ensuring we were comfortable and happy. They spent a lot of time answering our questions about the area.
I very highly recommend Vista! If you are near Atenas, you MUST experience the best in quiet comfort here.
