My wife and I have stayed at Vista Canyon Inn perhaps seven times over the past year or so, mostly before or after flights to visit friends and family members in the states. But it took only a couple of stays for us to start thinking of owner/managers Marsha and Eleazar as friends no less than those we we fly... More

Such a wonderful boutique hotel. The owners were so hands on and helpful. They helped to plan our activities and transportation to and from the Lapaz nature park and to a private island for a day on the beach. They serve breakfast every morning and it was excellent. The rooms are very quaint, comfortable and quiet. Great spa and swimming... More

A group of 8 friends just spent 4 days at Vista Canyon Inn. Marsha and Eleazar were so helpful. They coordinated with us prior to our arrival and assisted us with setting up the activities we wanted to do while there. Everything was all set, we arrived and the fun began the very next morning! Our tours that Marsha helped... More

We stopped her for two night at the end of a 3+ week stay in Costa Rica. This was absolutely a great place to stay. We were made to feel comfortable in every way, including help finding it when our GPS proved inadequate to the task. Eleazar and his wife couldn't have been more gracious to us, and the staff...

From the moment we checked in with a welcome drink and a hug, we were treated as if we were long lost family. This is the level of personal service that just doesn't exist in the chain hotels. Marsha and Eliazar anticipated our every need, from a specially packed lunch for an early excursion, to great dinner recommendations. The view... More

Excellent host and Costa Rican B&B experience. We were already sold on the positive reviews prior to booking our 1 night stay at Vista Canyon. The hospitality that Eleazar and staff delivered affirmed this. Accommodations were clean and airy with very comfortable bedding. Breakfast was perfect! Like many, we used this as our starting point upon arriving in the country,... More

This is a beautiful place to stay. We stayed 2 nights at the beginning and 2 at the end of our trip. Eleazar was above and beyond helpful. Clean, tranquil, and tasty breakfast. We were treated like house guests instead of customers. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed 1 night at the beginning and 2 nights at the end of our month long trip to Costa Rica. Right from my initial inquiry I new I made the right decision to stay at Vista Canyon.

This hotel is great - primarily because of the personal attention of the owner Eleazar Hernandez who went way out of his way to make our stay so great. The hotel and rooms are absolutely immaculate. The bedding and linens are first class - they even provide really nice beach towels for the pool. Breakfast was served in style in... More
