This place was so beautiful and peaceful and friendly it was about as far away from NYC as a human can get!!! The views are humbling and the staff is super duper friendly. The best BnB!! Can't wait to go back!!!

Such a lovely place, views of the Nicoya Penisula that will make your heart sing!! My room was so nice, the food terrific, and the hospitality is fabulous!! The folks that own and run Vista Valverde are so nice. The furnishings in both the rooms, but also the common areas are so comfortable.. I highly recommend Vista Valverde!!

Spent a night at Vista Valverde Bed & Breakfast. The quality of the suite was unmatched by any B&B I have visited in the past. The owners were there to help us in any way we needed. The breakfast was wonderful as well. I will stay there the next visit to Costa Rica, and will recommend it as a must stay to my family and friends.

Tom and Susan both love cooking so each breakfast was different and outstanding incl fresh squeezed o.j. Our 2 bdr cabin was more beautiful than my own home with native woods in the ceiling, large windows, an immense deck with comfy chairs so we could watch the view change hour by hour. They're committed to helping birds, butterflies, even monkeys be comfortable there. Eating breakfast while bird-watching was marvelous.

Room Tip: They are all marvelous. Can't go wrong.

Let's first get the bullet points down for trip advisor, then onto the true, descriptive review.
The owners are great!!!!
The views are spectacular!!!!
The food was wonderful!!!!
The property can't be beat!!!!

I will NOT stay anywhere else when returning to Costa Rica, this is the only place I will go!!!!

Now, onward with the meat of the review.


This past week we have spent vacationing at the Vista Valverde bed and breakfast in San Ramon, Costa Rica. Now I could bore you with an endless description of the amazing and beautiful scenery here or post tons of pictures in an attempt to accurately show just how majestic it is, but I won't.

The truth is, no matter how its described in words or represented in pictures it will never fully describe or show you what a treat you are in for when you stay with Tom and Sue. Any property can be beautiful, or have great service. The things that separates Vista Valverde from the rest and makes it a true gem are the personal touches and how they strive to make your vacation, your time with them great.

There is plenty to do within just a short drive from the resort, all you need do is ask either Tom or Sue and they will give you plenty of great recommendations to suite what you are looking for.

As you can tell, I can't say enough good things about the owners, the property, and the truly spectacular experience that we had on our vacation to Vista Valverde. This was the first of hopefully many more stays here, and I can't wait to come back.

Tom and Sue, thanks for the wonderful week, and I hope to see you again very soon.

To anyone looking at a vacation to Costa Rica, I hope this review helps, but don't take my word for it, experience it for yourself.

With San Ramón being a more typical Costa Rican town, and not considered a resort or tourist area, I was a little worried about the place we were going to be staying. I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Most of the rooms are in private cottages that sit atop of a mountain. All of the buildings are top quality and very modern. The main house has a 270 degree view of the surrounding mountains and valleys, all the way down to the Pacific. With the altitude and latitude, the temperature is perfect all day long. Overall, the facilities feel like a mountaintop resort, but with the care and service of a couple owned bed and breakfast. The Ackley's are some of the most interesting and nice people I have ever met. Whether you plan to spend the week relaxing onsite or exploring the greater San Ramón area, I can guarantee you this is the place to stay.
