My wife and I were delayed getting into San Jose and needed a place to stay for the evening before heading to Dominical. We contacted Nicole from the US and she graciously handled our request for the evening, and even sent a driver to meet us at the airport! After being stuck in airports for the day, it was a welcome sight to reach El Paraiso Verde. Nicole was very helpful and understanding, and in the morning made us an incredibly delicious breakfast to get us on our way. She also assisted with the car rental. The grounds are beautiful and the accommodations are spotless! You cannot go wrong here! Thank you Nicole!

Room Tip: No real "fitness center," but the pool is amazing!

At the end of our vacacion we looked for a place were we could relax. El Paraiso Verde offered us an amazing place with great views, a nice pool and most of all a private terasse with a hamock in front of a lovely bungalow. It is secure, very clean and for the price a high standard. The owner Freddy is a great and friendly guy, he showed us his property with all the beautifull trees and plants. We saw there a lot of birds and animals. And not to forget Freddy envited us for the best Breakfast we ever had in Costa Rica.

After spending 6 days in Quepos, we decided we should be closer to the airport for our return flight. Nicole was happy to accommodate our last minute reservation and we were glad we did drive to El Paraiso Verde. The property was perfect to relax and enjoy peace and quiet. A comfortable hammock and spotless cottage, with galley kitchen space and comfortable bed. I would recommend this as a good base to see Costa Rica plus I would take advantage of the services that are offered, wish we had stayed here for 3 or 4 days. A beautiful breakfast was offered with freshly baked bread, eggs from the chickens on site, fresh fruit and hot coffee. What more could you want?

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.

We stayed at Nicole and Fredi's B&B on the evening of our arrival. It is about 30-40 minutes drive from the airport.
There are couple bungalows on their property so you have the place to yourselves rather than a room in somebody's house. Our bungalow had 2 queen beds and small bathroom. There is a hammock out front which is very relaxing. They provide towels and sheets but no soap or shampoo so bring your own soap and shampoo. Luckily we had a hand sanitizer that we could use. All other B&B we stayed at provided the soap and shampoo.
There are many birds on the property and you wake to the lovely songs of the birds. The breakfast is absolutely delicious - ask for special scrambled eggs :) There is also fresh squeezed juice from their own oranges, different types of meat that they cure themselves, delicious bread and tea / coffee. We had a lovely informative chat with them when eating breakfast. It was like staying with friends :)
Last but not least, they helped us arrange car rental when our confirmed car rental with Europcar was overbooked and could not give us a car. Nicole called up "Target car rental" which is a small Costa Rican car rental company and they were very helpful in getting us a car at the last minute with very reasonable prices compared to quotes we were getting from other agencies.
Highly recommend this B&B !!
