Room is comfortable and view is amazing. Very personal service and we were able to get some good advice. They booked some things for us, like the trip to San Jose. We are walkers, and we did the hill to the B&B four times. : ) But it is a paved road so no worries for cars. FYI, DO NOT... More

The attention to detail and friendliness by all the staff members at Vista Atenas is remarkable. We stayed in the Vega casita for 2 months in 2014 and 1 month in 2016. It was like a home away from home for us. The space, natural lighting and colors used in the casita give one a feeling of tranquility creating a... More

My wife and I spend two wonderful nights here in Jan. 2016. The rooms were very nice and the staff (Sadie and Joanna) were very friendly and helpful. There is no TV in the rooms but with a beautiful view from atop the hill (you can see for miles and the beautiful city lights at night) who needs it.

We stayed at the B&B for one night and really enjoyed it. It was a bit over our budget, but we did not regret it at all. The place is situated with a beautiful view over the valley end the city of Atenas, and the atmosphere up there is great. You can really relaxe at this place. The place is... More

...with a constellation theme throughout, this is a superb place to stay. Lovely rooms perched above the nearby village of Atenas with views as far as the ever-changing skies will allow. In addition to the exquisite setting you will find the comfort and attention to detail offered by the warmest of hosts, Vera, and her staff. I know it sounds... More

This place was great. The view day, or night is awesome. The rooms are simple and the altitude brings a cool breeze. It is a small hotel with an extremely friendly staff only about 30 minutes away from the Airport. Just a heads up, no TV which suits us fine. Wifi is free. Our Next trip back to Costa Rica... More

To us, Vista Atenas was the perfect start for our trip through Costa Rica. It's close to San Jose airport and manager Jonathan and host Vera arrange transportation if you like. The amazing view, the comfortable and nicely decorated rooms, and the swimming pool make this a great place to relax a little after the long flight. It's also an... More

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.
