#1 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Atenas
Centrally located to be near the airport and many of Costa Rica's best attractions, yet a world away from the tourist bustle, Eden Atenas is the perfect headquarters for your Costa Rican visit. Here you will be tempted to just relax by the pool, enjoy spectacular tropical gardens (the work of tropical horticulturist Jan and design enthusiast Avtar), watch Toucans or Mot Mots, and be wowed by the best breakfast in the country. Whether you are helping yourself to a mango off the tree, lounging amongst the hibiscus, bougainvillea, gardenia, and jasmine, or watching sunrise over the volcano, you will have no trouble understanding why we call this place Eden. The only complaint we ever hear, is "If I'd only known, I would have stayed longer"

I decided to visit my dear friend Ernesto at his new hideaway at “Eden Atenas.” When you visit, I highly recommend selecting the Cabin. Plenty of windows for ventilation and ceiling fan. More importantly, this room has total privacy surrounded by trees with a slight walk away from the other rooms. Breakfast was excellent with each day an added chef’s surprise which as promised to be different and better than before. Excellent coffee and top personal service provided by Ernesto as always. This was a two night stay and the pool was refreshing and cool and enjoyed very much. Ernesto quickly becomes your next best Costa Rican friend that you want to see and visit often.

Celebrating thirty years of marriage, Tina and I traveled from our home in Playa del Coco to see more of Costa Rica, We stayed three nights here in Eden and it was amazing. Ernesto went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and safe in this amazing tropical garden, surrounded by jungle. The breakfast that Enid made for us each morning, was the so authentic, fresh and delicious. After forty two years I am now retired from the hotel and restaurant industry and I do not hand out complements easily. Enid is truly a Chef of Central American Breakfast and a very good one. Stay here and wake up to birds singing and the best breakfast in Costa Rica. Thank you Ernesto and "Chef" Enid for everything. Give some love to Max for us.

Our time at Eden Atenas was absolutely transcendent. We were greeted at the gate by Sarah and 2 delightful dogs, Max and Lily, and were immediately made to feel at home. The property is beautiful, with a richly landscaped garden filled with flowers, trees, hummingbirds and butterflies--it is so beautiful, in fact, that we would have felt our visit to be complete without ever leaving the property! Between the lovely tranquility of the gardens, the perfect pool and the amazing food, we had everything we needed. I can't say enough nice things about Sarah and Enid. They treated us like family. The breakfasts they made for us were creative, sublime, and huge! I am gluten-free, and Sarah made a special trip into town for gluten-free flour so I could have the same meals as the other guests. And on our last morning she and Enid made us 2 breakfasts--incredible eggs Benedict and the traditional Gallo pinto. Sarah made reservations for us at area attractions and Enid helped me with my Spanish. We sincerely hope that the recent change in the ownership of this unique, amazing place will not result in changes that could diminish our experience when we return in January, 2022. We are so looking forward to spending more time there and with being reunited with Sarah, Enid, Max, and Lily.

We had a fantastic time in Eden Atenas and we are actually already coming back there ;) The breakfast is spectacular! The place is remote, silent with a beautiful garden, birds and nature. Hammocks and rocking chairs are everywhere. Internet is strong enough for zoomcalls There is an outside kitchen that can be used The pool is big enough and the dogs are just some sweethearts! (and we are usually no dog people) I can only recommend to go there

We loved our most recent stay at Eden Atenas! This privately owned property was welcoming, private, quiet, friendly, helpful, and the list goes on. Upon arrival, the landscape of the property that greets you is what tropical dreams are made of (lush jungle vegetation, a pool, a separate outdoor gathering space to join others who are staying at the property, and several opportunities to see and hear birds (especially Hummingbirds). Janet and Avtar said that toucans will regularly be seen near the property. However, I sadly never had the privilege of seeing one (but we were only there 2 days). In addition, we loved that their 2 dogs (Max and Lily) greeted us each time we'd pull back on to the property. Finally, our room was comfortable and the sounds of rain ended up being our gentle alarm clock both of the days we stayed at Eden Atenas. We suggest getting up slowly and then going out to take advantage of the property's hammocks or rocking chairs. As mentioned in prior reviews, the breakfast is delightful too. We also appreciated the helpful tips and nice conversation we had with Janet and Avtar. We LOVE to travel and are so thankful Costa Rica provided us a get-a-way during this unimaginable time. Eden Atenas and the other properties we stayed at throughout our time in CR followed all the necessary protocol related to COVID-19. However, I must say, we were never worried about traveling during such an uncertain time anyway. Get out there! Turn the useless news off. Use your common sense and support the world of travel and general business again. Thank you Eden Atenas and Costa Rica. You were such a wonderful bright spot in our traveling loving hearts.
