“Peace and Quiet with a View”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We stayed here for two days at the end of 10 days wonderful days in Costa Rica. Although we got in quite late, around 7:00 p.m. we were still able to get some dinner. It is a safe property, quiet, nice dinner ($12), with wine and beer being available. For breakfast we asked if we could get fried eggs as well and that was no problem ($3 extra). On Saturday we drove up to Poas Volcano and then on to the La Paz Waterfalls and Nature Reserve. Both are a must see while in Costa Rica. Our room had a wonderful view of Poas to the North and of San Jose to the East. Having stayed in and around San Jose several times in the past I am most happy to have found Vista Linda Montana. It is a short drive (30 min max) to the airport or the rental car drop off site. We will be back.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a better view. There are no bad rooms here!

We stayed here on our arrival to Costa Rica and for a couple of days before we left. The rooms are large and clean, the view is breathtaking, and the grounds pretty, secure, and peaceful. The hosts go out of their way to help you (they found us a rental car and did a 5 AM drop-off at the airport) and their friendliness is genuine - our baby son misses their attentions! Recommend this place to anyone - great jump off point outside of the bustle of San Jose but not far from the airport.

Although a bit out of town, it's such a beautiful location that the taxi ride is worth it. In a peaceful rural suburb of a rather frantic city, this is restful, attractive - and you can have your evening meal there too (great at the end of a busy day). We were even driven to the airport at 6am by our hostess. The rooms were spacious and the balcony made the place just like a small hotel. Great value and I can't belive you'd find anywhere better..

The hotel was extremely pleasant and the staff friendly and helpful. Do NOT use the rental car company the hotel recommends, CR-Save Rent A Car. We had a very bad experience which involved the agency representative.

I stayed at this B&B the night I arrived in Costa Rica. It's conveniently close to the airport, and with an arrival time of 11:00pm, all I was wishing for was a comfortable bed and a good night's rest. The hosts were very welcoming and gracious. I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with much more than bedroom basics - the B&B is enclosed by lush flowers and garden bed, and the space is well equipped with a wide assortment of outdoor furniture to soak up the surroundings. Good complimentary breakfast and great patio. Free wifi, with signal strongest in the common areas and dwindling away as you reach the further accommodations.

Although I was there for only a short period of time, I would have been glad to stay here for a couple more days.

This B&B is close to airport (10 min drive). Despite this, we had a stunning mountain view (expected an airport hotel, but it was nothing like that). There is a gorgeous big garden with beautiful trees & flowers, it's nice and quiet with a great service from the 3 sweet lady's! I also had a great massage after a 24 hour journey!

This well run B&B Hotel by a German lady is a short distance from Costa Rica airport, but in a quiet residential neighborhood, over a ridge away from any airport noise. and with a lovely garden and view. If you book a room for at least 2 days, the pick-up service from the airport is free. The attentive and thoughtful staff is multi-lingual (at least German, English and Spanish - and possibly others) and is good at anticipating your needs. Transportation to and from the airport was a breeze with their help even in the early morning (4am), as was arranging for a rental SUV which was brought right to the hotel for pickup, and left there on return. The best place to spend your first nights in country, and last night before catching a flight home. It's only a short drive to the Poas. The included European style breakfast was simple but good, and a delicious dinner of generous portions (which was ordered extra) was very good. Tranquil and a great value!
