This place is a absolute must-visit. We stayed there two nights at the end of a 2 week trip.. The grounds are gorgeous, views are great, staff is friendly and helpful ,and the food is excellent (at leat by Costa Rican Standards!), With 4 adults and 2 kids it was always going to be a problem finding somewhere roomy enough,...

We stayed at Vista del Valle for the first 3 nights of our visit to Costa Rica and found it magical. The room/cabin was lovely, with a dramatic view that was a pleasure to wake up to every morning. Breakfasts were excellent--the other meals were good. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. We arrived after a red-eye and were... More

I stayed at Vista del Valle on the recommendation of a coworker and we stayed in the Ilan Ilan cottage. It had an outdoor shower, which would have been great if the water were hotter than lukewarm. Overall the proper is manicured and very pretty. The staff is friendly and the food is good--not great. This is a nice spot... More

After booking at this Inn I read the reviews and became a little worried - but these worries were completely unfounded. Two big concerns I noted in the other reviews - unclean rooms and unfriendly staff - did not apply in either case during our stay, The staff was great and friendly. We did have a small spider in our... More

If you are looking for a wonderful experience when you fly in or out of the airport near San Jose, then I highly recommend the little boutique hotel called Vista del Valle. (Note, if you get lost and want to ask for it say " Vista da Vi yay" when asking directions. I have stayed there each time I have... More

I stayed here for one night with my two girlfriends and my sister and all four of us absolutely loved it. We had just spent the week touring the country on a school bus with college kids. We had, as alumni, agreed to travel with our school's outdoor adventures program and loved our adventures, but sleeping on floors was no... More

This place was just ok and nothing more. Granted we had just come from the Peace Lodge which was heaven on earth so that set our expectations pretty high. However, we stayed in the nido room which had many ants crawling on the ceiling inside the room, no outdoor shower and because there was no AC we felt sticky and... More

My husband and I stayed at Vista del Valle for the last two nights of our trip. The temperate climate there is absolutely heavenly after a stay in Manuel Antonio with so much heat and the no-seeums munching on your ankles. At first on the dirt road leading to the resort we were wondering what we were in for, until... More

We have stayed here 3 times in 8 years and love everything about it. The owners are originally from N California and if this place was located anywhere remotely similar in CA, the prices would be 4 times as much. The Exotic Woods rooms are very nice, but the Ilan Ilan is my favorite. The complete privacy with a great... More
