The Orchid Tree was just what we needed after arriving in CR. It has the quality and comfort of the named hotels near to the airports with the personality of that personal service you can only get a smaller B and Bs. On arrival we were greeted with friendly faces, fresh and delicious fruit and suggestions for where to get... More

What a fabulous find! When we were researching places to stay while in Costa Rica we knew we wanted to check out Atenas. Any place that National Geographic says has the best weather on the planet - well we had to see if for ourselves. They weren't wrong. Even though it was the dry season, and some of the surrounding...

Stayed here the night we arrived in Costa Rica and the night before we left. Great location about 30 mins from the airport. We arranged for Brad to pick us up at the airport. He was there as promised and insisted on helping us with our bags. Later, he even gave us a ride into town to a restaurant we... More

We stayed at the Orchid Tree for 3 nights while looking at property and getting to know Atenas. Pat and Brad are wonderful hosts and very helpful with information about the area. Yummy breakfast, comfortable rooms each on their own level and really pleasant common areas. This is in a neighborhood and there are roosters in the morning but Hey!... More

My husband and I just spent a night at The Orchid Tree. Pat and Brad were amazing hosts. The bed was so comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. Brad went out of his way to help us with directions, we would highly recommend this place, and hope to return soon.

Our family stayed with Pat and Brad at the Orchid Tree for two nights in early January. Not only are the hosts super friendly and warm, they helped us to plan our all to brief stay in Atenas. The rooms are comfortable and the beds are inviting, the breakfasts were delicious. Pat and Brad keep their little paradise super clean.... More

This is a lovely place with such wonderful hosts. Pat and Brad were so kind and cooked us such a great breakfast. Super easy to get to from the surrounding highways and the airport. The pool is beautiful and the whole place has a lovely relaxing feel to it. The little town of Atenas was lovely as well and Brad... More

We have stayed at many B&B's throughout the world, and we would consider our stay at the Orchid Tree outstanding. We originally thought of renting an entire house in Atenas, but decided that we would enjoy sharing the experience with others in a B&B atmosphere and we were not disappointed with our choice. From the pictures we determined that the... More
