I had not planned a stay at this amazing hotel. I had just picked up the rental car and started driving. When I got tired I hit lodging on my GPS and this was the first place on the list so I went with it. It was not where I would have expected to find a hotel. It was dark... More

Peaceful, quiet spot in traditional Costa Rica style. Simple design, clean rooms, nice bathroom/shower (a treat in CR), beautiful pool, freindly staff with small restaurant/bar on site for breakfast or dinner. We have stayed here twice on separate trips. $3 cab ride to the town center of Atenas, 20-30 minutes from the airport. Only complaint (we didn't really care) was... More

We did not know anything about this hotel and bumped into it by accident. We were looking for a place to stay for one night after leaving San Jose late on a friday. When we arrived in the Atenas area, we were seeking for a place to stay and have a well deserved rest. We arrived to the hotel by... More

We loved the gardens and the pool is beautiful! Loved having the Oropendulas nesting in the palm outside our room. The room was a nice size and the bathroom was large and bright, the staff was friendly, and the restaurant was fine. But ventilation in the room was a problem: there is no cross-breeze and the small ceiling fan mounted... More

Nothing fancy about the rooms. The bed was two twins pushed together with an uncomfortable hard ridge between them. No a/c and it was a high ceiling so the ceiling fan didn't deliver much air. Parking was somewhat inconvenient because you couldn't park next to your room, they only had unsecured parking lot at the bottom of the hill and... More

My husband and I enjoyed our first stay in Atenas at Hotel Colinas del Sol. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and the chicken and mushroom penne pasta will go down as one of my favorite meals dining out!!!

Hotel was lovely and the employees were incredible but the manager was always very rude and unhappy. Shouldn't be working in a place with people if you never smile. Food was good and hotel was always clean. Pool was always clean. Breakfast could use a bit more diversity.

I have stayed at Colinas del Sol 5 times for a month each time. I have found such a vast improvement since the new manager/owner took over: a wonderful new chef, better outside lighting, new linens, hairdryers and TV in cabins and a complete re-do of the pool. Birgitta, the new manager/owner should be proud - she has made Colinas... More

This is a great place if you want to be in a secluded paradise. I discovered one of the most amazing birds there, called the oropendola. Wonderful. I just wish they had bigger pillows. And fewer ants.
