Vista del Valle is located on a very nice piece of property about 20-30 minutes from Juan Santamaria International Airport. The grounds are very lush, and our room (the Mona Lisa) was cute and rustic, with an outdoor shower overlooking the forested valley below. It's very quiet, and a nice place to lay about and read or go for a... More

Some parts of this property were nice. The grounds were beautiful, the pool was pretty nice (getting a bit rundown with several tiles missing), our room--the Mona Lisa was really cute and private. Loved the outdoor shower, and had a great view. Unfortunately, you are really stuck when it comes to food options. You can go to the onsite restaurant... More

Fantastic location, great food, friendly staff - so far, so trip advisor 5. Two of us did a scary but satisfying pre-breakfast walk/scramble down to waterfall which I would highly recommend - though I wish I had taken a bin bag to collect some of the accumulated plastic bottles and other rubbish. Could be a 5 overall but only scraped... More

My husband and I stayed here in November, 2013. The grounds are well maintained and lush, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The villas are basic and a little rough around the edges, but they are still spacious and comfortable. There are no televisions, telephones or wi-fi in the rooms (wi-fi is available in the restaurant and near... More

Wonderful place to relax and get in touch with nature and yourself. The staff is friendly, helpful, and fun to be around. The entire grounds is full of beautiful plants, flowers, and birds. The bamboo trees talks as the wind flows through them. Your fitness room is the great outdoors. The food is wonderful and healthy. I love they are... More

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Vista del Valle. If you are looking for a tranquil ecofriendly experience you have found the right place. Our family took a trip to Costa Rica in April of 2014. We stayed at Vista del Valle for a week. A magnificent experience. The location is an easy 25 minute drive from... More

Only 30 minutes from SJO, high on the side of a hill with gorgeous views of the valley below, this place is rather fascinating. The grounds are magnificent with fantastic landscaping and foliage (including some absolutely amazingly large and majestic bamboo stands which make a fantastic sound in the winds as the canes bang against one another) giving. The rooms... More

The Vista del Valle hotel is just 20 minutes from the San Jose airport and provides a convenient and pleasurable place for first and last nights in Costa Rica. The owner, Mike Breslin, is a very friendly person and committed to environmental sustainability. The grounds of the hotel are immaculately groomed, with a combination of native and exotic plants.

Needed a place near the airport to stay the first couple of nights until we got our bearings, as we were scheduled to land at night and did not want to follow that up with a 4 hour drive through the night with 3 kids in tow. We needed accommodations that offered us our own kitchen ( special dietary needs... More

My family and I stayed in the Mango Manor on two occasions during our trip. Once when we flew into San Jose, and then a second time for the last week of our trip. Both times our family agreed that Vista del Valle was a great find. The first thing you will notice is the amazing fauna and flora that... More
