We chose this B&B for our first night in costa rica. We wanted to relax after two very long flights, enjoy the nature, a great view, a nice swimming pool. So we decided to avoid san jose and chose atenas instead. ( 30 min drive from the airport). And we did get all that, along with a very nice chat... More

Make it up the steep drive and you see you are above the clouds. You will be greeted by a green eyed piercing black lab named achilles. He is the welcoming and security squad. He takes both jobs seriously. The boss Vera is a multi lingual gem. She is artistic and intelligent. Jonathan the manager is helpful and knows the... More

We ended our trip to Costa Rica at Vista Atenas Bed & Breakfast, and we could not have picked a better place to stay. While the 'Vista' is as fabulous as everyone mentions, for us it was also the very relaxing atmosphere and the very welcoming Vera and her staff, that made it perfect. The rooms itself were well appointed,... More

The ‘vista’ in the name should give a clue. Perched up on a hillside above Atenas, the views across the valley are fabulous. The rooms have large French windows, facing the views – or you could just enjoy the view from the swimming pool. Furnishing and facilities in our room were OK, if a little basic. Breakfast was fine –... More

Very conveniently located near San Jose but a world away. The view on the 4 main volcanoes on a clear morning and night is awsome and worth the stay. Vera (speak french fluently) the owner and her staff are very friendly and welcoming. great breakfast included We enjoyed immensely and recommend strongly.

This very reasonably priced B&B is a good deal considering the fabulous view, extremely helpful manager, cleanrooms, and pleasant pool. A gate locked at night keeps the place secure. We found our beds comfortable, and the rooms are equipped with a fridge, but not wine glasses or even a corkscrew or bottle opener. We found we could can get these... More

I stayed at Vista Atenas for the first few days of my trip, and what a fantastic way to begin! Vera and Jonathan were delightful, friendly and helpful hosts and I felt very much at home there. The B&B is in an absolutely idyllic setting on a hillside overlooking the expansive valley - incredible views, sunrises and sunsets! The cabinas... More

My husband and I spent 6 weeks in one of the cabinas at this little B&B and it was no doubt the best vacation ever! The view, the rooms and the service were spectacular. Even the wifi was great. I can't say enough good things about Vera and her entire staff. They took great care of us and were fun... More
