Recent Atenas reviews

  • 5 Star, Blue Ribbon, Gold Medal, Best in Show

    "We arrived after having spent a week on one of Costa Rica's fabulous beaches. Our girls are surfers so we split our time 60% Beach, 40% Mountains. We couldn't believe the beauty & peace of this incredible villa. We think we made a terrible mistake not spending our entire time here!(Only half kidding!) When we could convince everyone to leave this paradise, we explored Poas & the town of Atenas. Our favorite excursion was the 'El Toledo Organic Coffee Farm tour'. Jeraldo was so welcoming & we figured out a way to communicate despite our limited Spanish & his limited English! This villa is so spectacular that we are trying to figure out how we can replicate the ambience in our home in Florida. Thank you, Joe, for allowing us to enjoy your little slice of heaven. We hope to become regulars! Pura Vida!"

  • Casa Doughty- Amazing

    "We stayed at Casa Doughty during the week of Thanksgiving, 2015. There were 7 people in our group ranging in age from 16 years to 77 years old. This place was exactly as described and perfect for our family and friends. My main concern was for the 77 year old (my mom). My mother had a slight stroke a year ago and stairs can be tricky...as well as floor rugs. Casa Doughty was very easy for her to navigate, both inside and out. The grounds and pool are beautifully maintained. The inside was very clean and the kitchen was equipped with anything you may need. We ran into one slight problem regarding a car rental. However, a quick email and one phone conversation with Steve and Diane quickly had the matter resolved. Atenas and Casa Doughty are perfectly situated for having a "home base" and having access to many other places. We visited volcanoes (Poas and Arenal), went deep sea fishing in Jaco , visited beaches (my favorite was Playa Dona Ana where we were able to feed Capacin monkeys), toured a nearby coffee plantation and enjoyed the city of Atenas. In order to do these things a rental car is a MUST. Yes, driving in Costa Rica is different from driving in the states, and usually takes longer due to road conditions, but it is hardly the nightmare some have alluded. A good GPS (usually provided by the car rental agency), a wee bit of caution and common sense are all that one needs to successfully navigate Costa Rican roads. I would highly recommend Casa Doughty!"

  • Beautiful and peaceful property

    "The property is away from me the town but close enough to grocery shopping, restaurants, and a convenient highway that will give you access to airport and many other of Costa Ricas main attractions. It has a nice size pool with beautiful, relaxing surroundings. The owner, Sonia was very nice and accommodating. There are some typical Costa Rican restaurants in town but our favorite was Etnias for live music on Fridays and some nice Tapas. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend to others who don't want the typical touristy larger cities. Thank you , Sonia for letting us stay at your place in the mountains! Ari H."
