This place feels like your own little paradise!! It is very private and quiet and stunningly pretty. Brad was a wonderful host and made us feel very at home. Every detail is attended to and yet you always feel like you have privacy. The pics on Tripadvisor were great, but couldn't do it justice!!

A small and quiet place, very relaxing and comfortable. Brad is busy all the time tending to the million details as every hotelier must, but he's 100% yours when you need him. He was our guide for an impromptu one-day trip to Nicaragua that included several hours on a slow boat on the even slower San Juan river, a small... More

My family of three (w/my 4 yo daughter) stayed three nights at The Orchid Tree just outside Atenas this past week and were stunned by the tranquility, privacy, flexibility and hospitality offered by this facility and it's owner. Brad, the owner, was AMAZING! He was SO servant-hearted but never over bearing...always offering privacy and flexibility with our needs. He has... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay near Grecia and we had seen this B&B before on the internet so we decided to stay here. We were happy with our choice as it was really super comfortable and near Atenas and Grecia but in a small quiet neighborhood. The living area and the kitchen are open to the air and... More

Great hospitality and helpful staff. Very relaxing and peaceful property. Brad went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed and got where we needed to go. There aren't very many rooms so it is usually a very quite place and not a bunch if people. The pool is gorgeous and a fun little spot to hang... More

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
