Linda Vista have made a lot of changes since stayed here the last time. They have removed part of the old houses, done a nice open viewpoint towards the volcano, updated the top house with the rooms sporting whole wal windows towards the volcano and not to forget a nice big new restaurant. We stayed in two rooms with glass... More

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying at the Linda Vista from 5/12-5/13/16. From the moment we arrived, quite distraught from a car/ motorcycle accident, Brian took care of us. He was calming and very helpful making us feel at ease. Our room was spectacular with a view up front and center of the volcano. The views were... More

We loved our stay up at Linda Vista! The cabins are cozy, the restaurant serves up delicious culinary treats and then there's the volcano! My husband and I were here sans kids. A nice place to relax and kick back. In rainy season, sporting the volcano can be a big hit & miss!

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Linda Vista. We were in room 33, which is a Junior Suite, and we couldn’t have been happier with our room and view.

We stayed at Linda Vista Hotel during out tour of Costa Rica. The location is perfect and the views are stunning. Driving is a necessity; you need to drive about 8 km on a rough unpaved road (it's the Costa Rican way...Pura Vida!). I recommend suites 24 or 25 for the view of the volcano.
