Recent Atenas reviews

  • LOVED THIS PLACE!!

    "We stayed here with our son and his girlfriend and had an absolutely wonderful time. The home is as lovely as it looks in the pictures! What we didn't realize is that the two bedrooms are in two separate buildings - making it perfect for two couples giving each great privacy. The main house is in the middle. The view is spectacular and we loved sitting on the veranda at night watching the lighting show off in the distance! We took advantage of the offer to have someone come in an cook for us and the meal was delicious and it made for a relaxing time for us! I tend to be skeptical of reviews and if you are like me, I hope you'll take this review to heart!! Thank you so much for a very memorable time!"

  • 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!"

  • Most wonderful 2 months

    "My wife, 2 kids (11 and 8) and I have had one of the most memorable summers you could ever imagine and it would not have been possible without having a place that we could call home for 2 months. The house with its open floor plan, the 3 bedrooms and, my kids favorite, the pool gave us a place to settle in and allowed us to really explore the beauty of Costa Rice. With the internet I was able to do business and stay in contact with my office as well. We experience the farmers market on Friday mornings, the Mercado a couple a times a week, the plaza for the kids to run play and make friend and the one and only Gelly's for our ice cream, ask for Alex he's the owner and is the nicest man and try to make it to La Casita del Café up route 3, great view on top looking down the valley and on a clear day you can see the ocean and the food is really good. We were able to explore multiple beaches that are 40-60 minutes away, go to the volcanoes of Paos and to the waterfall of La Pez, do forget to get your fresh strawberries sold on the side of the road. We also made a weekend trip to Arenal, wonderful. When we needed our American fix we found a Walmart and a Starbuck 20-30 toward San Jose. Great experience and the owner of the property is easy and trust worthy to deal with. I highly recommend this this house and this wonderful little village of Atenas."

  • March is Marvellous in Atenas

    "My wife and I had a wonderful three month stay in Costa Rica, January through March in 2015. We stayed in three different locations and enjoyed our time at Hisano’s more than anywhere else. It is centrally located in Costa Rica, just outside Atenas, on an excellent bus route, about 20 minutes to Town for a cost of 350 colonies, about 75 cents. We used Hisano’s as a base and travelled frequently to San Jose for the symphony and museum experiences, as well as to the Pacific coast beaches, down to Jaco and Quepos/Manual Antonio National Park...we did day trips as well as overnight adventures. We rented the bungalow at Hisano’s and found it to be immaculate...this is rare in Costa Rica. The insects were controlled regularly through weekly maid service and included fresh linens and a thorough cleaning. The cabina is fully equipped, with two ample bedrooms, large living/dining room area, great kitchen, adequate bathroom, huge covered patio area with table, chairs and a hammock that I couldn’t keep my wife out of. It is modern, bright white tile throughout, attractively decorated inside with Wi-Fi and a cd player. There was no cable TV but we enjoyed Netflicks and other programming through our computers, so not a big deal especially when you consider local programming. The grounds surrounding the accommodation are beautiful and well maintained, even throughout the dry season, so the hundreds of plants carefully selected and planted by Hisano herself were always green and blooming. Most other places the grass is brown and plants suffering a bit from the lack of rain. The pool is a short walk down the path and was small but adequate in size and always immaculate. You will find Hisano herself to be a warm and welcoming host who respects your privacy but is always there when you need her and is always willing to help. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend this accommodation to anyone."
