If the weather is good - the views of the volcano in this place are second to none. The staff speak perfect english and can help plan your trip, and the breakfast is delicious too. I'd definitely stay here again :)

I was part of a large group, and we took over most of the hotel. Our experiences by floor were very, very different. The front desk lady seemed overwhelmed with our group and just handed out keys so those who checked in later didn't know where their roommate was. It was chaotic. I originally got room 8 on the first... More

The downstairs rooms seem to all be what used to be shops - they still have shopfront style windows from a mall, as in huge windows and curtains that you can't quite close all the way. AC was great and the rooms were huge, food was nice too. Seemed to be very family friendly and had a very central feel... More

We stayed at this hotel from July 28 - July 31. When we checked in we were welcomed by Flor with a much needed drink as we had been on the road from San Jose for 2 1/2 hours. Flor told us that we were now on the 3rd floor as a big group was coming in and they needed... More

Nice place. My room had a nice-sized balcony overlooking downtown so that was a bonus. Very clean and "open air" concept. That is, the floors were exposed to the outside on the street side of the hotel. It made you feel as if you were downtown because you can hear the sounds and see the sights from each floor. Nice...

This hotel was our pit stop on a long, leisurely drive from San Jose to the ferry terminal in Puntarenas. The room was an excellent value at $62 USD per night for a two bed suite, and also was equipped with air conditioning. Wifi is free and the signal was adequate in our corner room on the second floor.

We really lucked out with this place! Clean, spacious, and you couldn't get better front desk staff! Above and beyond helpful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Breakfast was yummy, and the location was the best! Nice to have a comfortable bed, hot water, a/c, and a common area to relax. The Volcano is in plain view. We would recommend... More

The front desk staff is wonderful. They will help you with anything you need. The hotel is in good condition considering what you are paying. Rooms are clean and adequately maintained. Open common area was great for us to have a beer (purchased from down the street - LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION) and watch the April storms. Downsides? Light/noise from the... More

The staff is attentive and speaks English, Spanish, and German. The rooms are excellent and comfortable, the tropical setting is beautiful, and the food in the restaurant is delicious. I recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Atenas.
