It was a perfect experience, we were more than satisfied. We stayed here our first and last night in Costa Rica, wanting to visit much raved about Atenas and have an easy drive to the airport. First, The Orchid Tree is gorgeous with Balinese architecture. Comfortable room, zen-like grounds and luxurious pool. Brad was a lovely, generous, friendly, helpful host,... More

Comfortable beds, clean rooms and grounds, decent water pressure and water that is actually hot, gracious hosts, good breakfast, and a location that is convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights here. We found it easy to take the bus or cabs to visit friends in Atenas or to go get food. Hosts were very accommodating of our baby, which... More

A beautiful setting amongst the trees, the Orchid Tree was perfect after battling the traffic of San Jose. The rooms are clean and tidy, the bed was better than we were expecting. The living and dining area is open air, very relaxing to chill and read a book with a bottle of wine. Pool looks very inviting and breakfast was... More

Been meaning to write a review ever since returning to the States from Costa Rica, just a month ago. Had the pleasure of staying at the Orchid Tree for a full week in January. What a great place to stay! The owners were so welcoming and so positively meticulous about their Orchid Tree and everything they do. They made me... More

We started and ended our holiday at this lovely bed and breakfast. The pool was absolutely lovely, breakfast was always tasty. The owner was very considerate, and awoke extra early to prepare a breakfast and take away snack for our early morning flight out. Atenas is also a great place to park yourselves and explore the country; a day trip... More

As everyone else who has stayed here clearly attests to, this is an oasis in the central valley of Costa Rica run by a very thoughtful, considerate couple who are clearly pros in the business and know how to make any guest feel welcome and comfortable. If there were more people like this in the world running B&Bs, hotels would... More

Not a single detail overlooked in easily one of the, if not THE, most casual and comfortable treasures in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. The Orchid Tree in Atenas is strategically ideal for those travelers who like to have the best of both worlds: the B&B is located just off highways 3 and 27, which both take you to... More

Once we found this little gem we were able to relax and enjoy our stay. The rooms were comfy. Some rooms did not have air but being up in the hillside, the air was pleasantly cool and an air conditioner wasn't needed. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. We arrived tired from a... More

Recently my wife Pam and I spent a week at the Orchid Tree. This was our second trip to Costa Rica. Our first was 13 years ago and it was the "resort" experience. This trip we wanted to experience the local scene. We chose Atenas after researching climate, attractions that were within driving distance and away form the tourist hot... More

Gracious hosts Pat and Brad (not to mention Josef and Buddy!) literally open up their living room to you: the common area for sitting, eating, reading, conversing is as cozy as a living room but is actually a patio, since it has no walls, only a roof. Great for rainy afternoons. Pat and Brad fed us well, offered good sight-seeing... More
