8 of us, three generations traveling together, stayed here a couple nights at each end of our Costa Rica trip. Really great service.

My only warning is that there seems to be nothing in the immediate area. Which is less of a problem than you might think because they will cook dinner if you let them know you want it. Reasonably priced, good food and great if you are in a group.

Booked here for my first time in Costa Rica because of the great reviews and reasonable price. Renate and the rest of the folks at Vista Linda Montana were beyond helpful, as I was just kind of bouncing around aimlessly, alone and without any real plans. The room was cute, the bathroom was clean, and the grounds were lovely. The view, as previously stated by others, was pretty amazing, even though I was there in the middle of the rainy season.

The grounds are covered in all kinds of beautiful plants, with the occasional domestic animal. It's sort of hidden, but that's a good thing. With the address on this listing, any cab driver in Alajuela should be able to get you there. I only had to show one of them a map, and then he kind of did a face-palm when he realized where it was. Also, there's a bus stop across the street, which will take you into Alajuela's downtown for super cheap. Probably want to take a cab back, though.

It's really just a very pleasant environment, and I really didn't want to leave. Also, there's this really awesome dog who loves to play fetch.

We used this B&B for our first night in Costa Rica on the way to Arenal. We were greeted by the shuttle driver at the airport and was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome we received from our hostess. The apartment we had was clean, nicely furnished and had a great view. The grounds were lovely and we felt safe. There was a lanquage barrier but never a communication problem. The owner went out of her way to make us comfortable. We would definitly return to this place and would definitly recommend this place.

We had an enjoyable stay at this bed & breakfast. Our shuttle driver was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. We were received warmly & given a nice quiet room. She was extremely accommodating, for when we inquired about being able to have pizza delivered, she kindly went out & purchased and brought back the pizza for us. We did have a little trouble with communication, as our Spanish was quite limited & German non-existent. This didn't end up really being a problem at all. She went above & beyond in all things! We would definitely recommend this place!

Just returned from a two weeks vacation i Costa Rica. Stayed here on my first night upon arrival, and my last night before departing. I've not often been met by such a warm and helpfull host. The language barrier may be a problem as her english is limited, but there were no problems in communicating what I needed/wanted.
The rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast excellent. It's located a bit off the beaten track from the airport, so if you're planning on taking a taxi make sure you bring the address and description on how to get there. Otherwise you may find that the taxidriver doesn't know the B&B and may take you for a ride. It's a 10$ ride, 15 minutes from the airport. Would recommend to get the host to pick you up at the airport if you're arriving late.
I would definitely stay there again. Always felt I was welcome and as if it was a home away from home.
