What else to say, everythings was right to outstanding! The room, the water, the garden, the flowers, the pool, the breakfast, the view is breathtaking, the temperature is ideal, no a/c required during the night, a dry 30C-33C daytime with a breeze... Thanks again to Vera, Jonathan and Achile for our short but very enjoyable stay at Vista Athenas. Pura... More

This was our 4th trip to Costa Rica, but the 1st time staying at Vista Atenas, at which we spent the first and last nights of our two week trip. A very easy drive from the airport brings you here to a place that feels "just right". A fabulous view, quiet and secure location, and of course, Jonathon and Vera's... More

There is something about Vista Atenas that brings people back. Is it the jaw dropping view - the huge open space of the Central Valley and the sky above it? Or is it the respect and appreciation of nature by Vera and Johnathan which extends to their guests? The layout affords space and privacy for quiet reflection if desired. Or,... More

One of our favorite hotels in Costa Rica. Everything about it is wonderful! Vera makes you feel special. Great location. 10 minutes to center of town. 45 minutes from San Jose. Very secure location. Great to just relax around the pool and enjoy the scenery. Will stay there again.

Vista Atenas is a short drive from San Jose airport but a world away in the pace of life and views. After a long trip from New England it was the perfect way to rest and get ready for more travel. The room was adequate and the pool and views were breathtaking. They have a small refrigerator with juices and... More

This was our 17th year to visit Costa Rica and our 6th. year to be staying with Vera and Jonathan at the Vista Atenas. We are welcomed with open arms and feel as if we have a home away from home. Our room is immaculate and comfortable. Everyone is helpful from management to the gardener and the girls who clean... More

Vista Atenas made me change my vacation plans. I wanted to travel around Costa Rica staying in different places every night. At first I followed my plan, but when I came to Vista Atenas, I decided to make day trips instead, coming back to Vista Atenas every night. This place gives you a feeling of warmth and welcome, you feel... More

This place was wonderful. Our hosts Jonathan & Vera were just a book of information. We felt so comfortable here we didn't want to leave. The views were just amazing! At night over looking the city it was beautiful. The rooms were nice loved the bathroom and shower so big. Breakfast in the morning was very good and just enough.... More
