Recent Atenas reviews


    "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!"

  • Perfect vacation!

    "We are a family of 3 (couple and a 10 months baby) and we rented this house for 12 days. We needed to get away to a quiet and beautiful place. Casa Dos Leones was exactly that. Barry and Claudia gave us tones of informations and were very helpful. Everything they said turned out to be true. No bad surprises. The description and pictures gives an exact idea of what you're gonna get. Atenas is beautiful and the weather is just perfect. The house is located in the mountains surrounding the town. The view is spectacular. The house is really comfortable and spacious. We got great service from the property management (Marian and Aad). Marian took us everywhere (beach, coffee tour, La Paz, etc.) and it was really convenient with our baby. Thank you again for everything. We recommend your house very strongly. We had an amazing vacation. Pura Vida!"

  • Anniversary Paradise

    "My wife and I rented the castle for our 9th Anniversary. It was spectacular. The pictures do not do this home justice. The kitchen was equipped with beautiful modern stainless steel appliances; laundry room for washing; bar for chatting up my wife and serving drinks. I made my wife breakfast every morning and we dined together at the dining table in front of the gorgeous mountain and sky view beyond the infinity pool. You might say that it was too much house for just the two of us but we made excellent use of our time away from our kids. For the first 3 days of our stay we just soaked in the Infinity pool watching the clouds roll through the beautiful mountains. The weather was perfect. The master bath was gorgeous. We stocked the fridge, the bar and simply enjoyed each other. When we were done watching the morning sun burst atop the guest house; weary of chasing the adolescent toucan, we drove 30-40 minutes into San Jose or an hour over to Jaco beach for Nightlife and entertainment. Convenient to everything, and close to nothing we had the best of both worlds. When we ran out of ideas, Sam and Roxy were there to advise us in a whim. We can't wait to go back. Thanks Sam and Roxy for accepting us into your home. Sorry it took so long to post our comments. Hope to stay in the castle again soon. Obie and Robyn"

  • Great Location

    "Both the Manager and the location of the apartment were perfect for us. From Atenas we took some day trips and everything worked out so well, with Hisano's assistance, of course. We hated to leave and can't wait to go back. Thanks again for making our short vacation so enjoyable."

Atenas Travel Tips

Stay in Atenas and Catch a Glimpse of Perfection

Located just 26 miles northwest of San Jose, Atenas rentals allow you to enjoy warm days and mild evenings in one of the best climates in the world. Atenas is surrounded by parks, restaurants, and lush landscapes, making it one of the most beautiful destinations in Costa Rica.

Atenas Resorts near the Central Park

The central park of Atenas is also the heart of the city. This peaceful spot is perfect for a picnic, ice cream, or people-watching. In fact, you can watch more than people at this spot as every afternoon flocks of green parrots and toucans appear in the towering palm trees. This park allows you to get a full idea of what quintessential Costa Rican days are like.

You Must Shop during Vacations in Costa Rica

During vacations in Costa Rica, you should not miss out on the opportunity to go shopping! You will definitely want to take home some souvenirs that you would not be able to acquire anywhere else. One such item is Atenas coffee which is some of the finest in the world.

Tour around

Because Costa Rica is so beautiful and there is no reason to remain cooped up in your Atenas beach rentals, you should definitely take some tours during your stay. Vacations in Costa Rica actually require some sightseeing, so a tour is the perfect way to achieve this. If you are looking for an adventure, book an ATV tour that will take you into the mountains and out by the sea. You can also hire a local guide to show you around firsthand.
