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

What a wonderful spot! From the staff to the accommodations to the Amazing view, sunrises and sunsets, this B&B cannot be topped. Although you will not feel the Tico way of life here, Jonathan will help you with any of your needs or spots you would like to venture out to. He is an experienced customer service professional, and the... More

We traveled to Costa Rica this past summer and stayed at Vista Atenas for the week. We found the accommodations to be excellent, the view is stunning and the service is top rate. The hotel manager, Jonathan was very helpful in booking excursions, getting a rental car, everything. I would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend this... 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

Last weekend we had the good fortune to stay at Vista Atenas Bed & Breakfast. My only hesitation in writing this review is that it will become so popular, that we won't be able to book a reservation in the future! The view from the pool deck at sunset or sunrise is spectacular and it offers the perfect place to... More

My wife and I travel a lot, and stayed at the Vista Atenas B&B in 2013 and 2014. We are planning to stay again in May and June of 2015 in the small, one bedroom Casita overlooking the Central Valley, and the town of Atenas. There is no doubt in our minds that it's the best B&B we've ever stayed... More

Beautiful View, Excellent Food, Jonathan was a fine help to us. We were fussed at by the owner for various misdemeaners. You need a car to stay there because a taxi cost $8 each way to go to lunch. WE had no way to fix our own meal as the kitchen was closed, except for Breakfast. I would recommend this... More

The valley view from B&B Vista Atenas is absolutely wonderful. In the evening the city lights in the distance are like little flames in the dark. Our stay in a cabin was pleasant and more private then the rooms as they are a bit too close to the pool and breakfast area. Vera the owner is a lovely lady with... More

We read many glowing reviews about the Vista Atenas B&B prior to booking our stay. Our stay was somewhat mixed. - Staff / wonderful people. Jonathan is truly a gem of an employee. Don't hesitate to ask Jonathan about local attractions / places to eat / or room maintenance. However, we were politely "dressed down" by the owner for not... More
