My wife and I stayed here for several nights. Pat and Brad were extremely helpful in regards to the area and local recommendations for dinner. The breakfast was delightful and the property is very comfortable and clean. On any return trips to Atenas, this well certainly be our home away from home.

My wife and I stayed here on two separate nights. The property was lovely, breakfast was delicious and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. Pat and Brad were amazingly helpful and did everything they could to make our stay pleasant. I could not recommend them more.

This small Inn is a great place, not only for first/last night in CR but for extended stays as well. Very clean and obviously very well taken care of by the Canadien owners, Brad and Pat. We just returned from a vacation that began at the Orchid Tree, with two other couples. Brad, advised us of what restaurants had his...

We stayed here our last day of a fabulous 2 week trip to be conveniently close to the airport. As you will read below, I have mixed feelings about this place. The setting was as nice as I've read in other reviews but the place needs a good power wash and an update. The pool area was inviting from a...

Very welcoming but needs work...........as new owners, we would like to respond to your recent review. In speaking with you, I know that you have been to Costa Rica many times and that is why I was so shocked by this review.

We stayed at this gem of a B&B for a week while vacationing in Costa Rica with our daughter who lives in Atenas. While we used it as a home base for day trips to the many beautiful natural attractions in central Costa Rica, we should have made more time to relax and enjoy the peace and ambience of the...

Brad and Pat are exemplary hosts and make you feel extremely welcome from the start. My girlfriend and I were so glad that we stumbled upon this place randomly when planning our trip and it ended up being our favourite B&B we stayed at during the trip. We were immediately made to feel comfortable and at home and they were...

We were looking for somewhere to stay for our last couple of nights before flying home and were drawn to Atenas because it was rumoured to have the best climate in the world. The Orchid Tree is a great place to enjoy that climate, whether that's watching hummingbirds from the breezy lounge/dining area or relaxing in a swinging chair by...

Brad and Pat have a beautiful place and they are terrific hosts. Their story is one that more people should consider, re-evaluate your priorities and live a more rewarding life. We could not have had a more enjoyable entry into the country as these folks gave us. No need to look any farther if you are wanting a place just...
