#1 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Atenas
Travellers' Choice
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"

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.

Janet and Avtar are great. They are so helpful/responsive and available if you need them. If not, they give you space. The food is amazing. It's a beautiful spot. If I am in this area of Costa Rica, I will return.

Recently spent 4 days at Eden Atenas as our first stop in Costa Rica with our young daughter. Great little oasis, hosts Avtar and Jan were very accommodating and helpful with local transport etc... as well as being very kind and interesting people. Pool is great, grounds were immaculately kept. Their two dogs (Max and Lily) were ridiculously friendly and wonderful pool companions for our daughter. It’s a bit far out of the town center but an easy 2 dollar cab ride to anywhere in town. We had one of the larger suites with a large deck which was perfect. Kitchen is pretty well appointed for self catering. Would definitely recommend if you’re staying in Atenas.

We were very happy to stay at Jan and Avtar’s place for 3 nights. Nice rural location and they have created a very colourful and attractive garden. The pool is nice, the dogs are friendly and Jan’s breakfasts were truly delightful. It’s nice that those staying in the rooms, as opposed to the suites, get to use a communal kitchen. More down-home than 5 star, this b&b will appeal to those looking for something unique.
