“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

A perfect view of central Costa Rica. Very clean rooms, eating area, lounge, and pool. My room was only five feet from the pool and 10 feet from a view of paradise. Jonathan was very helpful with my day excursions and insight into Tico culture. I had arranged for the $35.00 taxi pick up from the airport. The entire process went so smoothly. I walked out of the departure gate, there was the driver holding a sign with my name. In 35 minutes I was at Vista Atenas. Only a 20 minute walk into town or you can easily call a cab to pick you up. Loved the healthy and beautifully presented breakfast too!

Vista Atenas B&B was a wonderful combination of luxury and affordability. The location is great with an expansive view of the valley and our room had windows and a sliding door that opened to the outdoors. The service was nice and staff very helpful in working out certain trip logistics we encountered. We were very pleased!

We stayed here for a total of 3 nights in February. This was the first place we stayed in CR and it was a very good first impression of this beautiful country. The manager, Jonathan was very helpful. He arranged taxi rides, car rentals, airport pick up & drop off and so much more. Just a real pleasant person. Vera, the owner was equally nice and helpful, with interesting stories to tell.

The grounds are beautiful, with many flowering plants. The views are gorgeous! This B&B is located on a hill, so you can see the entire Central Valley. The rooms are small but sufficient and clean. They provide a small refrigerator and coffee maker. The pool is crystal clear. The breakfasts are good with plenty of fresh fruit and juice and tasty CR coffee.

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay here. It is a good place to start out from partly because it is centrally located and not far from the airport. We would definitely recommend this place. We plan to stay here again on our next trip to CR.

Our stay at the Vista Atenas B & B was a little slice of heaven. Vera, the owner is a delight and provided us with information about the area and arranged for our airport pickup for only $35. The location overlooking the valley is spectacular and we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of the beautiful gardens. Jonathan is a delight and provided a lovely breakfast and much appreciated humor. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting the central valley area of Costa Rica.

Visa Atenas was recommended by some gals I met at the Conchal Hotel on the Pacific and I was not disappointed with either place. I found Vista Atenas well run with friendly support staff, in particular the truly wonderful Jonathan. Also they serve a pretty good breakfast. The view is really spectacular, the coffee tour was worth going to and do buy some coffee, it is excellent. I would definitely stay there again and a big plus was all the truly delightful people who also stayed at Vista Atenas during my stay.

Room Tip: the rooms by the pool are good value

I did not hesitate to arrange to stay here based on the reviews of other travellers and we were not disappointed!!! This charming bed and breakfast is lovely and the view of Atenas and surrounding area is stunning!!! We arranged to do the El Toledo Coffee tour ( which I highly recommend doing when in Atenas) before check-in and Vera, the lovely owner, was happy to supply us with a map and directions on how to get there. The rooms are named after the constellations and we had Polaris, which was nicely decorated, clean and spacious. We also enjoyed the hammock that was just outside on our porch - a nice way to chill out and enjoy the nice breezes that made their way through the property. Breakfast was delicious and it was nice talking to Vera who was happy to chat with us and tell us about life in Atenas and answer any questions we had. I would definitely stay here again when we come back to Atenas!
