Orchid Tree
Ranked #3 of 7 Atenas B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 May 2017

This is such a beautiful place with an wonderful host! We enjoyed spending time in the outdoor living area and by the pool. Brad made sure we had everything we wanted for breakfast! He made the beginning of our trip great by spending his time helping us with everything from directions, recommendations for restaurants, exchanging money and even dealing with cell phones. The gardens are full of flowers and fruit trees. Such a lovely and relaxing place!

Such a beautiful place. Fruit trees everywhere and beautiful outdoor space swimming pool is beautiful. And the owner Brad is just a rare gem. Worth the stay coming from the airport on your way into the country. Only 25 minutes from the airport in San Jose.

I would highly recommend Orchid Tree, in fact....it was such a great experience that I will most certainly be back. A true outdoor rainforest experience with all of the comforts of indoor private suites. The owner, Brad, is a wonderful host... willing to help teach you about the Costa Rica traditions. Comfortable and very Zen-like retreat is how I would describe this Bed and Breakfast. Breathtaking landscaping with a pool and outdoor gathering area.

Room Tip: Each room was unique with great decor and no noise. Any of the rooms would be a good choice.

We usually either start or end our CR trip at Orchid Tree due to proximity to airport and the finest hosts Brad and Pat. Once again did not disappoint. Thank you Brad for graciously holding down the fort and just the best breakfast ever. Wonderful comfy beds and relaxing living area to wind down the day. All our best and we'll be back.

Brad was an excellent host, accommodating our family an extra day when illness struck, giving us great local recommendations, and feeding us fantastic breakfasts. We stayed very comfortably in the family suite, and enjoyed the gardens and a dip in the pool on a hot day. Recommendations for things to see in the area: El Toledo Coffee Tour and Museo Ferroviario.
