I stayed 5 nights at Vista Atenas and left feeling rested and rejuvenated. This is a special place with hints of peace and serenity throughout. Loved my room - lots of windows that let in the warmth of the sun and drapes that darkened the room when I napped. Nice pool and lovely grounds. I spent a lot of time...

Our family love Vista Atenas. We stayed in two rooms, both very comfortable with great views of the valley (we recommend the valley view rooms). The owner was friendly and welcoming. Great breakfast--mango smoothies, fruit, and delicious eggs. Reasonably priced. We'd absolutely stay there again.

Lovely views - great eco friendly setup - lovely owner. Rooms are adequate and have amazing views. Don't expect frills - expect to connect with nature and the surrounding areas vistas. Breakfast could of been better.

We truly loved our stay here. Amazing views, amazing breakfast, amazing service! Vera really took care of us and I recommend this place to anybody looking for a quiet beautiful place to spend a few nights. Close to Atenas for food and supplies. I also highly recommend taking the El Toledo coffee tour while here. That was amazing too, just...

Arriving at Vista Atenas after a long day of travel was a wonderful experience. We felt that we'd really arrived in Costa Rica, and that this place on a hilltop over the town of Atenas (about 35 minutes from the SJO airport) was the perfect place to begin our two week vacation. This small B&B/small hotel is a soulful place...

We only stayed for one night, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable. The pool and terrace area were very nice with a great view. Vera and all the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Loved our two night stay here. The coffee was the best we had on our entire trip. Make sure and tell them the night before if you are heading to breakfast and happen to have a kitchen in your room! From the deck by the pool you can see all three volcanos and the lights of the surrounding cities at...

Don't come here expecting five-star facilities. It is an inexpensive B&B so it's not ultra-modern. However, we love this little place. Owner Vera is a sweetheart, the staff are friendly and attentive, the rooms are clean.and the location is . . . breathtaking. The views from high above the town of Atenas reach for many kilometres in every direction. It's...

Vista Atenas is a wonderful place to make yourself at home while staying in Atenas. Vera is a gracious hostess who has created a restful, well-run Bed and Breakfast that has everything you need. The location is convenient to downtown Atenas and it is easy to arrange day trips around picturesque Costa Rica. Vera's staff serves an excellent breakfast each...
