Spent our first night here and would happily have stayed longer. Great location, fabulous pool if a little chilly but kids loved it and the hot tub is for warming up. Marsha and Eleazar were so friendly and helpful, we couldn't have started our holiday off better. Would definitely recommend!

My family and I stayed there for five days between Christmas and New Years. The location is perfect, close to San Jose, but isolated enough that you truly feel away from the hubbub. The view is spectacular and the rooms and food are great. But what truly sets apart the Vista Canyon Inn from other lodgings in San Jose is...

Southern hospitality and great food in a neighborhood within 15-20 minutes of the airport or San Jose business. Lovely pool and hot tub. Great breakfasts, lunch and dinner if requested. 5 star service in a quiet country retreat. Small B and B style lodge with rooms in separate buildings over looking a mini Grand Canyon. You can hear the river...

It was a delight to have you with us on your 6 day visit to Costa Rica. Having guests stay longer than just a couple of nights gives us the opportunity to visit and get to know you better. Thanks for allowing us to prepare dinner for your business associates. I know it worked better for you not having to...

Unfortunately we stayed here at the tail end of our stay in Costa Rica but were impressed with this inn. The view is wonderful, the outdoor setting is well decorated and well designed for resting and relaxing. Our host, Eleazar was very friendly and accomodating. Made our last days in Costa Rica tremendously enjoyable.

Sold on the hotel by internet reviews and testimonials, we had a one night stay at the Vista Canyon Inn between Tortuguero and Jaco at the end of our holiday, and as we arrived I wondered if we'd got the right place! Situated in an unassuming part of Santa Ana (suburbs of San Jose) and down a dirt track (plenty...

Eleazar and Marsha are two of the most accommodating hosts I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Anytime we went anywhere, they printed detailed directions. They were always available for every need. The breakfast is the best in Costa Rica and the view is incredible! I'll never stay anywhere else when I'm in or around San Jose!
