We chose El Paraiso because of its location and excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. Fredi was an excellent host (Nicole was away). We arrived in Costa Rica in the evening and after picking up our hire vehicle drove to the petrol station in Atenas where Fredi met us as previously arranged and led us to the B&B.
The bungalow (yellow) we stayed in was spacious and well equipped. We wanted to self cater as we had two children of 7 and 9 and this option gave us the most flexibility.There is a modern supermarket nearby in Atenas where you can get all you need.
Breakfast was a total pleasure not only because of the great food but also because of the location over looking the valley and hills around Atenas. This also meant there were many species of bird in and around the gardens. Hummingbirds, tanagers and flycatchers were everywhere and above us soared vultures, hawks and falcons. There was also lots of other wildlife in the garden which gave the children great delight in finding. However the two things they loved most was the swimming pool and the dogs.
We stayed here for the first two nights of our holiday and the last night. If we come back we will stay longer because it is a superb place, great value and well located for looking around the central valley.
When we asked the children where they liked staying the most during our holiday they both said Fredi's.
