The hosts and staff were outstanding friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the pool, hottub, breakfasts and the VIEW is outstanding! The rooms were comfortable and we opened the doors to let the breeze in over the A/C, although we did use the A/C when necessary. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Property's Favorite Review
I couldn’t possibly say enough nice things about this lovely little oasis. I was travelling to have some dental work done and the owners Marsha and Dave went out of their way to make me feel so cared for and comfortable. The place is lovely, it’s so pretty, lovely tropical oasis above a canyon, away from the hustle and bustle, with a pool and hot tub and gorgeous views. The rooms are clean, comfortable, perfect for a couple, families or travelling solo. The staff are all very kind and helpful. Super friendly. They always had a lovely breakfast and smoothie and made me feel so at home while I was there. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone wanting a comfortable place to relax and get away from it all. There’s also a little spa set up and I wish I could have those massages again! I’ll miss it dearly. Such a great choice. They really helped get me around between my dental appointments and made sure I had necessary groceries and ice packs while I was recovering. So kind and generous and just the nicest most down to earth wonderful people. Stay here, you won’t be disappointed booking the Vista canyon inn.

The time you spent with us during your dental work was a delight. And thrilled I got to make the trip with you, Boyce, and Chris to the beach. I really enjoyed spending that day with you guys. The great thing about guests visiting for extended stays is having the time to enjoy the pool, jacuzzi and take time to pamper yourself with facials and massages. You definitely made the most of your trip and enjoyed Costa Rica to the fullest. Not to mention, leaving with that BEAUTIFUL NEW SMILE. I am so glad we are staying in touch and look forward to getting together again soon. Who knows, we may make it to your part of the world for a visit. However, you know you are always welcome here. Hugs Marsha, Dave and the Girls

As first time visitors to Costa Rica, we felt like we were visiting long-time friends at Vista Canyon Inn. The accommodations, the view, and the the people were fantastic. It was easy to get around, they provided great recommendations, and we highly recommend Vista Canyon Inn!

My wife and I were able to getaway for a few days and absolutely loved every second of our stay here! The staff truly goes above and beyond to make you feel like family and took care of us from start to finish. On top of the delicious breakfast, pool, hot tub and landscape, we were even able to get a private tour to see the countryside, whitewater rafting and eat at local fruit stands and restaurant. Can’t wait to go back!

This was my second stay at the Vista Canyon Inn for dental treatment in nearby San Jose. The owners, Dave and Marsha, welcome me like family. Always there to ensure that I was felt comfortable and provide great recommendations from choosing a local pub (Meme's just a short walk from the Inn) to great private daily excursions. The inn is beautifully landscaped, with an amazing view of the canyon, birds, wildlife, and fresh air. Heated pool, jacuzzi, books, magazines, games, and plenty of space for privacy. Daily breakfast is included with fresh fruits, eggs, and a variety of Costa Rican options. If you're in town for only a few days or a few weeks, the Canyon Vista Inn is a home away from home!

Brother from a different mother. You are the perfect example of a guest that arrived as a stranger and left as a member of our crazy extended family. So, when we found out you were coming back we couldn't wait. Dave was thrilled to have a golf partner and buddy for happy hour. Not to mention having you with us for St Patrick's Day festivities, ex-pat happy hours, and keeping the crowd of other guests gathering in the Salon to enjoy the basketball finals on the TV. Your kind comments are so appreciated. We look forward to seeing you later this year when you return with your family. Bunches of hugs from our family to yours. Marsha

When you walk through into the garden of this gorgeous hotel you are totally WOWED by the canyon view!! Its truly amazing and what makes this small hotel even better is the incredible owners Marsha and Dave who are so kind and caring. Then we have Gerarldo who ensures everything runs super smoothly and is such a joy to talk to and so so interesting. Carlos and a lovely lady make the most delicious breakfast imaginable. I spent time at the beginning of my Costa Rica trip here and at the end too. When I returned it was like visiting friends. What a wonderful welcome and what an amazing place. By far the best hotel I stayed at in Costa Rica and perhaps worldwide too! Thank you so much everybody!!

If you want to get the most out of Costa Rica stay at Vista Canyon Inn! Besides being one of the most beautiful properties I have ever stayed at. Vista Canyon provides the very BEST private tours in all of Costa Rica! Where else in CR, can you tell your friends to stay, where the Manger is your private tour guide? The manager and most knowledgable person, Gerardo Rojas is a fantastic personal tour guide. You tell him what your thinking of doing and he put together a fantastic indepth AWESOME Costa Rican tour! Everybody there is so helpful and NICE. Service is 5 STARS!!!!. Property is so relaxing and you can get real nice massages in a beautiful setting. Vista Canyon Inn has a very nice pool and hot jacuzzi. It is located in the best spot, central part of Costa Rica. With easy access to all points of Costa Rica! After staying 2 weeks there, I felt like I had the best vacation I have ever had!!!!!! Vista Canyon has become my home when I stay in Costa Rica and Boy do I Miss my Costa Rican home and Costa Rican family!!!!!!!! Blessings👀✌️🤙

This the third time we have stayed at Vista Canyon Inn. It is like going home. You are welcomed by Dave and Marsha with a feeling of warmth and genuine care for you safety, enjoyment and further trip planning if needed. The inn is clean and beautifully landscaped. The staff is quite accommodating and will even aid you if you are heading out to the rain forest or coastal region. Breakfasts are great and change each morning. They include fruit, eggs and a variety of Costa Rican food items including empanadas and rellenos. This is a great place to start a holiday after a flight and I’m sure it would work well if you were in Costa Rica on business or visiting for medical procedures. I will certainly return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Vista Canyon Inn. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and go out of their way to make you safe and happy. It is so much better than a hotel, like a home away from home. The Inn is very clean, and the room was well appointed with comfortable beds and daily cleaning. Breakfast each morning and coffee was delicious. There are many areas to sit, great view, hot tub and pool. Our guide from the Inn, Gerardo, took us on many tours all around Costa Rica, and many special places on the locals know. This made for a unique and special time for us. He is very friendly and helpful. We were dental tourists, and Dave the owner took great care of us, picking us up from the airport and shuttling us back and forth to appointments. He even took us to the grocery store. We could not have had a better experience.

What a delightful Inn to stay at. Everyone makes you feel as if you were part of the family. The day we arrived they were having a birthday party for one of the guests and invited us to participate. The rooms are so comfortable and inviting. Wonderful breakfast each morning. Location is beautiful overlooking a gorgeous canyon with beautiful landscape . Definitely recommend staying here. Thank you so much to Dave for an awesome stay. Tom and I look forward to seeing you again.
