Vista Valverde Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed June 4, 2014

First of all, it's a bit outside of San Ramon. And the last little bit is a rather treacherous rocky road up there, so I wouldn't advise trying it without 4 wheel drive. But, once you get there, you will be amazed! I guarantee it! The place is set on the side of a mountain top, and when the weather is clear, you see all the way to the Pacific Ocean, which must be at least 30 miles away! You can see the ships docked at Calderas, Punteranas, the Nicoya peninsula, the beautiful Pacific, as mentioned, and when the clouds roll in, you can watch them crawl up the mountain, all the way to your cabin! Then later on, you get a magnificent sunset, and then finally the beautiful lights along the coast. And all of this with modern, very nice amenities. And the cost for all of this? Well, right now, it's a whopping $80/night for a double. But, mark my words, when the word gets out, it will go up up up!

Room Tip: All the rooms have great views, but be sure you get one with good wifi.

Hey Jim! and Jim! It was so nice having you and your Dad stay with us here for a few nights. And it always makes us happy to hear that folks appreiciate our little mountian top as much as we do. The view is always here waiting for you when you decide to return! And yes, until we have a little more work done and the road upgraded, the rainy season has definitely done a number on our road and the 4x4, or at least a small SUV (someting a little higher off the raod) is a great suggestion. Pura vida!

We stayed at this wonderful B&B for 5 nights and had a peaceful time. For us breakfast was served at 8:30 am, but can be arranged to suit your needs The food was good and the owners were more than friendly. Kim and David made us fill like family. We did not have a ca
r, but hired a taxi to take us to town to buy groceries ($5). We stayed in the 1 bedroom cabin and loved the silence and views of the Nicola Bay. David took us back to Escazu for $75 at the end of our stay. This was a 0 stress vacation. The is a great place to read/write and plan. We are a retired couple and loved our time here.

My husband and I stay at Vista Valverde for three nights during Easter. We live at the beach in Costa Rica and wanted to get away from the all the visitors that arrive during holy week. Vista Valverde was the perfect spot for us. The views are amazing. The sunsets were even better. From our Cabin we had a view of the Gulf of Nicoya and each night during our stay the sunsets were awesome.
We loved Maria's gallo pinto at breakfast. The local coffee was super fresh and tasty.
We took day trips to Zarcero, Los Angeles Cloud Forest and a local waterpark close by the B&B.
We wanted to visit the farmers market in San Ramon but it was closed for holy week.
The Cabin we stayed in was great. We loved the outdoor patio and spent every evening enjoying a glass of wine in our rocking chairs while watching the sun set.
Thanks so much to all of you at Vista Verde for making our stay one to remember.

Room Tip: We liked the one bedroom cabin. It's the highest up and has the best view.

My family and I have now stayed here for the past 2 years. My daughter found this place and we booked the 2 cabins available for our party of 5 -8. Just outside the town of San Ramon. Peaceful, Stunning views to the west, Beautiful Sunsets, Delightful Hosts, Perfect accommodations for numerous day trips in all directions.

Room Tip: Larger cabin comfortably sleeps 4 +, upper cabin sleeps 2 +. Both cabins have security systems.

You were our biggest group yet! So glad you enjoyed your stay again... Tom & Sue had some pretty big shoes for us to fill - some things are different, some things are the same, and I hope we will continue to be your home away from home in Costa Rica. Your review is very much appreciated! Pura vida!

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.
