This place isn't top of the line in luxury, but it has so much character and you are treated with the most care one could imagine. It is a small place where the owners and caretaker give you all their attention and can make any arrangements you need. It is close by to the large city of San Jose and... More

The view is spectacular. The rooms are nice and the pool is so refreshing. The staff was amazing and the owner - Veda greeted us with a warm and welcoming smile. We had terrific organic breakfast every morning. This is truly a magical place and we can't wait to go back❤️❤️

So from a potential expat viewpoint - this is a great place to stay! Vera is a wealth of information! It has a new grocery store nearby with lots of American snacks. It is close driving distance to other towns we wanted to see. And the view - WOW - the view is jaw dropping! Also since it’s not in... More

Such a comfortable, peaceful place. High on a mountain overlooking the small town of Atenas, you can see 4 volcanoes. Really incredible. Vera is the owner of this rustic bnb. She is welcoming and accommodating. This is a good spot to launch your trip into Costa Rica. You could walk to town, from here, but it might be a little... More

I come to Atenas about twice a year because my elderly father lives here. I have stayed at Vista Atenas, Barons, and Colinas del Sol. My favorite is Vista Atenas. Barons has granite in the bathrooms, is definitely not as rustic as the other two. It's very nice. Colinas del sol is a very nice location. I enjoyed walking from... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. Vera, our host, was very gracious and accommodating. She was very knowledgeable about the area and didn't mind sharing her knowledge or recommending fun things to do. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. We also enjoyed a light breakfast each morning which included delicious fresh juice and authentic... More

We had a wonderful experience at Vista Atenas B & B. We travel to Costa Rica often and always stay at Vista Atenas. It's a quiet, beautiful location with magnificent views. The rooms are simple and comfortable. The pool is lovely. The breakfast is home cooked with local fruit. All in all, a great place to stay!

This is a relaxing spot with incredible views. One evening we had the opportunity to walk in the clouds and see what appeared to be a floating city. The staff accommodated all our needs and went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We hope to return one day. Pura Vida!

We landed at San Jose airport after a long flight from London so booked in at Vista Atenas as the first place on our tour...very convenient as it is less than an hours drive from the airport. Very friendly B&B with amazing views in well kept gardens. Recommended!

Atenas and the B&B were a perfect launching spot for exploring Costa Rica. We spent 3 nights there and everything was great, from the room to . We stayed in one of the villas that had a small kitchen and we were able to cook meals and enjoy them while looking over the valley. Atenas is a charming town with... More
