My friends and I chose this resort to stay in during our vacation in Costa Rica and had the most amazing time! Vista del Valle is absolutely beautiful! It's a 20-25 minute drive from the airport and a tropical world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The grounds are stunning with an amazing view of the mountains... More

Our experience at Vista del Valle was exceptional from the very first moment we arrived! Due to one of our friend's cancelled flight, we arrived very late to the resort and found that the hotel made arrangements to keep the restaurant open for us. Martin was there to greet us and show us to our room where we had dinner... More

My husband and I were excited to spend the 2nd half of our wedding anniversary trip in Costa Rica at Vista del Valle Plantation Inn, partly because of the great reviews and how nice it looked on the website. We were unfortunately disappointed in many ways. Based on the way the hotel was presented we were expecting a top-end hotel.... More

We had one night to enjoy a vacation while working in CR. We booked Vista del Valle because of all the great reviews online (?????) only to find it was not at all what it claims to be when we arrived. The property was not maintained. The Monalisa room was a mess with mold everywhere and old fixtures. There were... More

My husband and I chose this hotel for our little getaway because of the high trip advisor rating. We were not disappointed. Before we even arrived, transportation from the airport was arranged. We were greeted at the airport by a friendly driver who took us directly to the hotel. We were prepared for a rustic experience going into the trip,... More

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
