My wife and I have now stayed at this amazing place on four separate trips to Costa Rica. This last trip we stayed at Vista Naranja for 11 nights in April/May 2016. We love it here. The views are amazing. We saw two different types of monkeys, many different types of birds, and lots of other animals. The gardens around... More

Can't recommend highly enough. Stunningly beautiful and affordable. The owner Marco is very kind and knowledgeable. All four rooms have incredible decks overlooking the tree canopy and ocean. Giant glass windows and doors. Perfect for a couple.

Vista Naranja is the perfect quaint hotel in Mal Pais. We stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. It is clean, quiet, and has amazing ocean and sunset views. Marco and his wife are such generous hosts - more than accommodating, and always around for questions, recommendations, or just to hang out and chat. We loved the... More

This hotel is a special place. The access road is pretty hairy the first time but you get used to it. Comfortable room and balcony. View is spectacular. Monkeys in the trees right in front of your balcony. Owners work very hard to please. Breakfast on balcony is special. The down side is no AC. Also this entire area doesn't... More

Loved our stay! Marco the owner was extremely helpful in pointing out what would suit our vacationing needs. After our drive from Playa Naranjo to Paquera the driveway up to the guest house was a breeze!

When we walked into our hotel room my jaw dropped. Each room opens up to a private balcony on a cliff with a gorgeous view overlooking the pacific ocean. The rooms are simple, clean, and bright. When I looked it up on their web site, it said they used feng shui principles to design, so that might be why we... More

The views at the hotel are so beautiful! It will take your breath away. My husband and I wanted to stay off the dusty road of Santa Teresa so we picked Vista Naranja and I am so glad we did. This hotel is very comfortable, clean and relaxing. We so enjoyed the large balcony and ate breakfast there every morning.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vista Naranja is an energetically healing home, built in 2011. The house has been designed honoring the ancient tradition of “Feng Shui” and is inlayed with hidden crystals throughout its architecture. Special measurements and orientation of architectural features in the home help it to harmonize its inhabitants with good luck and increased well-being. The interior floors of the rooms and apartment are polished white concrete that feels cool and soft to the feet. During the day you can sit on your own teakwood terrace while enjoying the soft ocean breeze and observe nature as it comes to you… Monkeys, birds, parrots, butterflies, and iguanas are some of our regular guests, but at times we see migrating whales in the distance or some even more elusive wildlife. Let the ocean-wave lullaby sing you into dreamland so you can wake up refreshed for another day of adventure. THE ROOMS All four rooms on the second floor have a fantastic ocean view from private terraces and they are furnished with queen beds, fans, screened windows and doors, safes and private bathrooms with hot water. The two central rooms also have fully equipped kitchenettes. The terraces can be inter-connected to create one or two apartments accommodating up to 8 people. APARTMENT The apartment is situated at ground level with a spectacular private ocean view. The “Teak Terrace” is furnished with a complete kitchen including a stove with oven and a full-sized fridge, a table for 6 and a comfortable lounging couch. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen and single bed, a shared bathroom with a beautiful walk-in shower, hot water and a security box. ... more   less
