Every little detail was exactly what I needed and wanted. And the best part is it didn't seem super planned out, it's just what comes naturally to all of the lovely people at vista canyon inn. I absolutely have zero complaints and to be honest I can be a little high maintenance at times and I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere for 14 days and not had a complaint. Hahaha. I might also note that I was there for very major and traumatizing dental surgery and they didn't miss a beat. So genuinely compassionate and caring. I really can't say enough good things about my entire experience there. Don't deny yourself the gift of Vista Canyon Innm

Property's Favourite Review
We stayed at the Vista Canyon Inn one night after an 8 day adventure throughout Costa Rica and after a long day of traveling. From the moment we parked the car we felt at home. We were going to leave and grab food, but the owner suggested Uber eats and we were so happy to have a great meal on their beautiful property - and we didn’t even have to leave. It was a win-win! The owners were incredibly friendly and hospitable. Our room couldn’t have been any cleaner and the towels & sheets were very nice. The shower and hot water were great too. We loved the mini bar beverage options and the authentic breakfast. We will definitely be booking here again during our next trip to Costa Rica.

A Quick stay before flying out but now a new found treasure to return to. The owners Marsha and Eleazar are so warm and welcoming as is the rest of their staff. The Beauty of the canyon and the breathtaking sunsets are so calming. The decore and the the details such as cloth napkins, bug spray and sunscreen out for you to use make you feel at Home. The outdoor patio looking over the canyon along with the heated pool and jacuzi are amazing. Breakfast was delicious and the staff so attentive. YOU could not ask for a better place or better Price for a place to stay in that área. We now have a place to call home when we are in the área.

We were greeted with a warm welcome by Marsha and Eleazar as they escorted us into a magical landscape overlooking a deep canyon river setting. The heated pool and hot tub, the outdoor portion of the restaurant, along with comfy chairs all faced the unique canyon. It was hard to believe there was a vibrant city beyond. All was peaceful and soothing. A variety of rooms and kitchen suites had comfortable beds and tasteful decor with a keen attention to detail. Local organic toiletries were found in the shower. A handy fridge was in our room and a real insulated quality ICE BUCKET was offered full of ice! The included prepared breakfast consisted of local tamales, fresh fruits, eggs, tropical juice and coffee. The menu changes daily and I'm sure, given notice, they would make arrangements to provide for special dietary needs. Marsha, Eleazar, and their charming staff including Gerardo were so accommodating and genuinely friendly, (plus a little fluffy dog named Callie) that we felt quite at home in our unfortunately only one night stay. We were there to fly out from the San Jose airport the next day. We definitely look forward to coming back and spending time here with our new found friends.

I recently stayed at Vista Canyon Inn, and was so enamored of the quality of the facilities and attention of the owner ( Dave & Marsha ) as well as the staff ( Gerardo, Carlos & Yesenia ).Awesome breakfast is being served everyday with fresh fruits and very friendly and accommodating staff.The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished.The multiple garden area for guest where you can relax and meditate as well as enjoying the sun close to the pool and hot tub facing the canyon.They even offer massage service upon request at reasonable rates.Thanks Juana for a wonderful massage. Being able to experienced some adventures and tours around Costa Rica was made possible by what the facility can offer.I highly recommend this Inn for family, couple or even for any solo travelers who wants have a clean and comfortable place to stay in Costa Rica.
