Recent Atenas reviews

  • Peace among the butterflies and birds.

    "We live in San Jose and Atenas is one of our favourite places to visit, it is such a gorgeous little town with so much of what makes Costa Rica unique. The cottage is the perfect place to stay. The views are incredible and the floor to ceiling windows mean you can enjoy them from the second you wake until you decide to sleep. On the first stay we spent the entire day on the balcony bird watching and butterfly spotting. The gardens are mature and attract a lot of wildlife so you won't want to go anywhere. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing visit; fully stocked kitchen, fast wifi, netflix on a massive tv, bath to properly chill out, really comfortable bed - amazing! On the Sunday we spent the day in the hotel grounds as part of the price. You can choose from 3 pools, play tennis, mini-golf or just enjoy a beer and, again, the wildlife. If you are coming to Atenas I 100% recommend you stay in this beautiful property and enjoy the peace and quiet that makes Costa Rica so 'pura vida'! :)"

  • Beautiful Casa in the Central Valley

    "Our family of 6, 3 sisters and our husbands, spent 6 weeks in the Central Valley of this beautiful country, about 4 miles from the town of Atenas. The Casa Doughty we rented truly added to the enjoyment of our visit. The owners, Dianne and Steve, are a very gracious couple, always there for us when we needed assistance. Their property managers, Marion and Aad, picked us up at the airport and provided us with a lot of good information about the country. They are wonderful people and are available for tours. If you read the earlier reviews, you already have a good awareness of the property. It is truly beautifull, comfortable, and quite homey. We were impressed with the cooking tools available in the newly remodeled kitchen. More than accommodating. The views are spectacular. The grounds are beatified with lush greenery and beautiful flowers. It's very private. The entrance is gated. Mario, the gardener is a real treat. We tried to teach a little English and we learned a little Spanish from him. If you choose this Casa, be prepared to enjoy a wonderful assortment of fresh fruits daily. As they say in Costa Rica, Pura Vida."

  • Beyond our expectations!

    "From the get go Sam and Roxanne were a pleasure to work with on our first visit to Costa Rica! We are so grateful for the thoroughness and professionalism extended to us! The house is simply gorgeous! So much so that it was hard to leave every day to explore all that Costa Rica has to offer! The design of the house was warm and welcoming and all details well thought out! We enjoyed morning coffee poolside watching birds and butterflies feed on the bananas and the numerous iguana sunning on the roof or driveway. We took advantage of the view offered on top of the guest house each evening to star gaze and enjoy the twinkling lights of outlying towns. The central location of the house made our chosen attractions easy to reach. Sam recommended that we utilize the cell phone and GPS he has available and we are certainly glad we did as most of the roads are unmarked. We ventured to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, Poas Volcano and Jaco. We are already making plans for our return and while what we will do this next trip is up in the air, our choice to stay at the Luxury Castle is a definite!"

  • Enchanting!

    "The house is beautiful and incredibly peaceful. It was perfectly well stocked with all we needed in terms of cooking, heading to the beach, etc. The owners provided a great book with things to do and see and where to eat. We even had a wonderful dinner at the house one night cooked by the housekeeper, absolutely delicious!"
