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...

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....

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.

We loved having you and your big group with us for 5 days. It's more fun for us when groups reserve the entire property. Because it gives us more time to spend with the guests and get to know them better. We are thrilled you loved the property and grounds. But, especially your stay. We so appreciate your kind comments...

The drive up to the inn in no way reflects the quality of the inn itself and the wonderful hosts. Nice facility, amazing view. Cocktails on the edge of the canyon in the evening, breakfast in the morning. Eleazar and Marsha were super accommodating, and directed us to a great Italian restaurant within a short walk. Overall, we had a...

The road that leads to the hotel may be a little rough to guests from large cities outside of Costa Rida. For first time quests this is always a cultural experience.

The inn is located on a dirt road and when you pull up, you will think you are in the wrong place. Not a nice road! Inside, the views are nice, the rooms small but clean. Breakfast is average, nothing to get excited about but OK. If the innkeeper offers you anything, ask "how much" because there will be a...

Best decision in a long time was to switch from a downtown hotel to VCI for a nine day stay to recover from elective surgery for myself and dental work for my partner.
